Hervé (Cheap Thrills)
A man of many aliases (The Count, Action Man, Young Lovers, Voodoo Chilli and Speakerjunk to name but a few), Hervé is without doubt one of the busiest producers in the world. Cheap Thrills label head and remixer to the likes of The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Calvin Harris, he also has several albums about to drop including the highly anticipated Count and Sinden LP and the second installment of Machines Don't Care.
Trevor Loveys (Cheap Thrills)
Renowned for his collaborations with contemporaries including Hervé and Dave ‘Switch’ Taylor, Trevor’s many monikers include Speaker Junk, House of 909, Izit? and Li’ll Bo Tweak. Recently launching his own label, Tragic Magic, he’s remixed everyone from Roisin Murphy to A-Trak, and is a genuine pioneer of the jacking house sound now conquering the globe. Keep your eyes peeled for a number of forthcoming releases and remixes.
Speakerjunk (Cheap Thrills)
Hervé + Trevor Loveys = Speakerjunk. A back to back DJ Set, for the first time ever in Brighton, showcasing the finest sounds of Electro, Fidget House, Dubstep and Drum & Bass. Don’t miss this chance to catch these top DJ’s playing together in an intimate setting.
Music producer, DJ, remixer, songwriter, animator, director, columnist and graphic artist. Kidda is impossible to pigeon hole but the word ‘artist’ best covers his prolific creative output. Born out of the Brighton scene with underground releases on Brighton labels Catskills and Puma Strut Kidda is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. Look out for his second album, released on Skint in 2010.
High Rankin (Cheap Thrills)
High Rankin, or Will to his mum, has been making some serious waves of late. The past few months have seen him remix Hervé, Cypress Hill, Adam Freeland, Si Begg and the Stereo MC's. His ‘No Money For Guns’ EP, released on Cheap Thrills, received huge support across the board. With loads more nasty bass monsters in the pipeline things are only just getting started for this man.
Raised on a healthy diet of Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Grime and Garage in where else but High Wycombe, 21 year-old Foamo exploded onto the fidget house scene when his track ‘Moving It Over Here’ was championed by Kissy Sell Out on Radio One. With a number of huge originals and remixes under his belt his next single ‘Wardance’ comes to Skint later this year.
