Deekline is that rare figure in dance music, the seminal producer who has successfully maintained underground cache while making regular raids into the mainstream. The mastermind behind www.bootyfarm.com <http://www.bootyfarm.com> is the artist who brought you I Don't Smoke, the hyper-dope UK garage-breaks hybrid that broke the British top 20 back in 1999 and last year blew up all over again thanks to a 10-year anniversary re-release with a variety of new reworkings from top producers such as Utah Saints, Tim Healey and Crissy Criss (as well as Deekline himself). Yet he also works tirelessly to push street level bass music artists like London's Ivory and Shystie via the six record labels which he currently oversees: Sludge, Hot Cakes, Jungle Cakes, Booty Breaks, Rat Records and Giant Pussy Records.
Having worked with or remixed the cream of the cream when it comes to electronic dance music, including the likes of DJ Assault, Fast Eddie, Kid Sister and Freq Nasty, this is a producer with his finger right on the button, and in a wide variety of musical pies. For many he's best known for throwing down bassbin-rattling peaktime joints, such as his dancehall vibed ghetto house anthem Bring It Back, alongside Healey, his partner in the Giant Pussy Records imprint. Yet he's also capable of moments of sublime, understated elegance in the shape of Angels, the soulful and cerebral cut from his critically acclaimed 2009 album with engineering maestro Wizard, Back Up, Coming Through. In 2010 he has seen his booty anthem The Mexican, written with Healey, signed by German major label Superstar, as well as Ministry of Sound Australia. He is currently working on a new mix album for the latter.
Just as content jetting off to distant corners of the globe to bring his booty-shaking, genre-straddling style to fresh audiences as he is shutting himself away in his London studio to lock down the latest heavy jam, Deekline will be spinning his unique and iconic brand of bass music in the hottest of clubs across Australia (for the second time in six months), Canada, Europe and America in 2010 as part of the biggest world tour of his career.
Witnessing this groundbreaking DJ do his thing in the flesh is a rare, genuine must-see experience: a chance to catch a figure right at the apex of the thriving indie-dance scene. This is an artist who's always ahead of the game when it comes to the latest sounds, and generally most comfortable when confronted with a set of turntables and the chance to get his scratch on, usually to the delight of the crowd. A Deekline gig is a maelstrom of heaving bodies, booming low end and spectacular energy behind the decks: if he's in your area, make sure you're ready to represent.
Juwee, FxFarmer and Bobby Kudlicz: the three headz from the south of Germany, who launched the project Funkanomics in late 2006, have since then been touring extensively in the club scene. They have taken their beat contoured live experience and mixed it with their own funked up style in their productions. A sound that is designed for the dance floor and made up of beautiful crunchy bass lines, coupled with pumping grooves. A merger that works and once it starts can´t be stopped.
In their sets the "Funkos" impress by presenting their sound on four turntables plus a very own live set including breakbeat with influences from hiphop, funk, dope beats, reggae and electronica. They go against the grain of conventional djing so smoothly, that you only have to listen to it once and its inside your head. As a result the crowd is instantly whipped to a frenzy with an imaginative and more approach to dance not confined to one genre.
