Emperor, having proved himself with some heavyweight D&B releases on Symmetry, Titan, Ammunition and some exquisite dubstep gems on the Caliber label all in 2011, has since gone on to become a regular Critical artist as well as releases on Neosignal & Inspected.
His debut track ‘Monolith’ released on Critical:Modulations in June 2012 absolutely destroyed dance floors across the D&B scene. This was soon followed by the amazing ‘Jackhammer EP’ on Inspected records & really displayed Emperor’s potential. His ‘Begin EP’ on Critical furthered his notoriety & his records continue to be heavily rotated by Kasra, Enei, Andy C, Hype, Rockwell, Foreign Concept, Phace & Misanthrop, Prolix & and Wilkinson.
In 2015, Emperor teamed-up with Mefjus for their unstoppable ‘Disrupted’ which sky-rocketed them to huge sets at Imagination & Let it roll in 2014. Emperor finally released his debut album on Critical in 2016 with ‘Dispositions’ to much acclaim. Emperor is now regarded as one of the hottest d&b artists and with regular Festival shows & recent tours in the USA & Australia, his story is only now unfolding
The PRFCT recipe, the PRFCT crime, the PRFCT combination… Lose yourself in the frequencies, throw the fattest zero to the world outside, just dance. This is the Mandem mandate.
A manifestation of raw, visceral bass sonics and all the life-affirming dancefloor abandonment that comes with it, PRFCT Mandem are Jev and Aisling, a Latvian/Irish duo causing tremors from their lab in the thick of one of the healthiest drum & bass scenes in the UK: Manchester. Breaking through on Bloc2Bloc in late 2019, their entrance into drum & bass has been as explosive as their all-style, manic melting pot DJ sets and productions. With releases on their own Blazma imprint and prominent Rotterdam ravesmiths Korsakov Music, this is the very start of their intense bass explorations… And when it comes to providing tunes for the Mandem, they’ll settle for nothing less than a PRFCT ten.
AL/SO by name, neck-deep by game, Elmar van Eijk plays many significant roles in this thing we call drum’n’bass.
He runs both the Korsakov Music record label and agency representing and releasing music by some of the genre’s most respected and innovative artists. And - after years of fine-tuning his studio skills - he’s become a producer to be reckoned with in his own right. The dramatic theatrics of his soon to be released debut EP ‘Hypersonic’, with High Maintenance, represent everything AL/SO is about: formidable, high-energy, dynamic and musical bass music that crosses boundaries and juices up the dance. In his own words, if it slaps, he’ll play it.
And he’s pretty slap-happy if the truth be told. One of the very few DJs to emerge in the new-gen drum’n’bass movement and achieve international repute, regularly touring Europe, the UK and beyond long before any type of AL/SO release profile developed; his abilities and flare as a DJ alone have led to key residencies at the infamous Prague DNB mischief den Cross Club and the supersized premiership Rotterdam raves Korsakov. Watch him play and you’ll understand why…
A fierce slave to the dark art of mixcraft, AL/SO’s technique is a heady brew of four-deck devilry. Just as his name suggests, there’s always room for one more tune, both in the mix and at the end of the night. Just as his neck-deep game suggests, he is fully immersed in this thing we call drum’n’bass and he’s only just getting started…
