    On Saturday 26th March Urban Nerds are back at XOYO, heading yet deeper into the underground, with a carefully selected line-up of some of London's biggest players at the heart of the grime, garage, dubstep, funky and UK bass evolution!

    Crack house pioneer, seminal drum & bass producer and legendary DJ Zinc is joined by grime stalwarts Newham Generals, rising 2-step, garage and dance outfit Hot City, plus mind blowing live dubstep collective Engine-Earz Experiment! The Urban Nerds resident DJ squad Rattus Rattus & Klose One are also on hand with their usual cross-genre mash-up of underground bass bombs!

    In room two, Urban Nerds has invited Rinse FM's Marcus Nasty to collate an upfront line-up of underground grime, funky, house and garage of the highest order! Marking a new residency with Urban Nerds in 2011, Marcus has drawn on his unrivaled knowledge of the underground and it's artists, producers and DJs, to bring together some of the scene's hottest talents, representing the full spectrum of distinctly London bred genres.

    Marcus himself is undoubtedly one of the pioneers of the UK funky scene, as well as a long time supporter of grime, known by many as the former head of leading crew, N.A.S.T.Y. Joining him at XOYO are fellow Rinse FM selectors and purveyors of grime, DJs Mak 10 and Spyro, plus fire-tongued MC, Lil Nasty. Also behind the decks, legendary garage producer Scott Garcia, the man behind the still hyped old skool anthem 'It's a London thing'! At the other end of the pirate radio spectrum, Dejavu FM's Weeksey and Soulserious Records' Sunday Roast & Jook 10 bring the deeper side of funky, with the underground house killing it on London's airwaves and at underground parties across the Big Smoke!

    ZINC | http://www.myspace.com/bingozinc

    The Bingo Beats boss, Rinse FM resident and all-round bass brain Zinc has become known for his unique house hybrid, an amalgamation of deep and funky led beats infused with dark jungle and dubstep influenced basslines, blended with tremendous vigor on club anthems like 'Blunt Edge', 'Nu Sound' and the massive Ms Dynamite collaboration, 'Wile Out'. With DJ bookings across the globe, a seminal BBC Radio 1 Essential mix and a truly epic back catalogue that includes UK Garage crossover and scene defining smash, '138 Trek'. After making the rave descend into madness with a high-energy bass fueled set at Urban Nerds' Carnival warm-up in 2009, the mighty Zinc returns on 26th March to blow your minds at XOYO!

    NEWHAM GENERALS | http://www.myspace.com/newhamgenerals

    The Newham Generals aka D Double E and Footsie are grime scene veterans and are among the most respected underground acts in the UK today, with a career spanning three decades, defined by anthems like 'Frontline' and 'Prangman'. Their notoriety recently saw them collaborate with Breakage (protégé of drum & bass legend Shy FX) to release dubstep banger 'Hard'. Today, as grime MCs soften their music in light of renewed mainstream interest, the Generals stand firm – continually versioning the biggest underground beats and working with some of the biggest and most credible producers in the UK. Now, alongside Rinse FM's DJ Tubby the crew take to XOYO for an incredible live show for Urban Nerds!

    _________________________________________

    HOT CITY | http://www.myspace.com/hotcitybass

    Zinc and Newham Generals are joined by Hot City, a dance outfit on the rise, garnering increasing hype for their uncompromising mash-up of 2-step, garage, funky and ravey house led sets that are doing more that a lot to bring those epic UK garage sounds synonymous with the 90s back to dancefloors across the UK and beyond, fused with bubbly US garage sounds and supported by a string of critically acclaimed productions such as 'Yeah'!
    "Hot City’s ‘Yeah’ nails the infectious old skool vibe better than most. An Awe-inspiring package" (DJ Mag)

    ENGINE-EARZ EXPERIMENT | http://www.myspace.com/engineearz

    The Engine Earz bring a highly unique, fresh take on dubstep, with an incredible live show influenced by the likes of Massive Attack, The Prodigy, Rage Against The Machine and Asian Dub Foundation. Merging Asian sounds with mind-blowing sub-low and dubstep bass weight, overlaid with loud guitars and a string of live drums, horns and vocals, the Engine Earz Experiment hit XOYO with a dubstep attack like no other. Prepared to be blown away by the sound that's attracted the likes of The Streets (watch out for them supporting their UK tour), Jenna G, Foreign Beggars, Flux Pavilion and the Mad Decent crew to this one-off bass explosion!

    Scott Garcia exclusive UK garage mix for Urban Nerds at XOYO!


    Listen & download direct from SoundCloud:
    http://soundcloud.com/urbannerdslond...-uk-garage-mix

    Ahead of Urban Nerds at XOYO, Scott Garcia has put together an incredible hour long exclusive mix of UK garage gems old and new, touching on some well-known classics that’ll get the original ravers reminiscing and newer converts’ skanking in their seats with his bubbly blend of epic anthems, soulful instrumentals and house infused garage!

    Scott’s taking to the decks in room 2 as part of a very special squad of DJs and MCs that’s been curated by Rinse FM’s Marcus Nasty, considered by many to be one of the godfathers of the UK Funky scene that’s infiltrating all corners of British dance music at rapid speed!

    Scott Garcia is without doubt one of the pioneers of the UK garage scene, known by many for his genre defining 1997 smash ‘It’s a London Thing’ which became London’s unofficial anthem for years to come, breaking into the national charts and selling over 30,000 units. Soon after Scott set up his own label, signing a wealth of music influential scene stalwarts such as Oxide & Neutrino, DJ Luck & MC Neat, Shy Cookie and Genius Cru. He was also behind the Corrupted Cru along with Mike Kenny that was responsible for the 1998 anthem, G.A.R.A.G.E.

    A heads-up from the man himself…“It’s a LIVE mix of old skool & contemporary dub-wise UKG with a twist of vocal and a THOUSAND TONS of bass. ENJOY!
    So get your download on and enjoy some of those old skool cuts that can’t help but put a smile on your face!

    You can catch Scott Garcia and Marcus Nasty at XOYO on Saturday 26th March alongside Zinc, Newham Generals, Hot City, Engine-Earz Experiment Live, Rattus & Klose and many more!

    After much deliberation at Urban Nerds HQ, we’re pleased to reveal that South East dubstep collective BAD Content have swiped up first place for our Urban Nerds at XOYO DJ competition and will be joining Zinc, Newham Generals, Marcus Nasty, Scott Garcia, Rattus Rattus, Klose One and many more on Saturday 26th March!

    For tickets & more info check:
    http://www.urban-nerds.com/event/urban-nerds-at-xoyo



    With such a high calibre of mixes all round, it’s taken a little longer than expected to find a stand out winner! Compiled on Pioneer CDJs, BAD Content’s mix stood out for its bold, bass heavy combinations of classic grime bars, electro anthems and dubstep beats (including a few scene staples), making for a ravey half hour of mash-up madness that’s understood Urban Nerds’ eclectic party vibe and turned it on its head with their own signature style.

    Strictly speaking, we’ve heard it’s B.A.D ‘Bass and Dub’ Content and the crew certainly live up to their name on this one. Formed in 2009, their live show sees two DJs, Major and ZeBeDe. The trio have been bringing dubstep to Essex through their quick fire sets ever since playing a string of venues, including their own Bass & Dub night which is ‘100% Dubstep’! They’re also holding down a weekly slot on Force 106.5FM showcasing new talent that they’ve also championed through a popular mix series.

    All in all, this up-and-coming collective have clearly got their grind on and we’re very hyped for their Urban Nerds debut set at XOYO where you’ll be able to see them in the flesh, warming up the main room for Zinc, Newham Generals, Engine Earz Experiment, Rattus Rattus and Klose One.
    Here’s what they had to say about winning the competition…

    “It’s a real pleasure to be playing alongside such huge people to us personally. Zinc and Scott Garcia especially, as well as a line-up of forward thinking artists, pushing great new music.
    This is something we feel very passionate about, so is a real honour. The Urban Nerds guys have been hugely supportive and it’s a great opportunity to be part of such a big night”


    You can grab their winning mix from our Soundcloud page below, and catch them at Urban Nerds on Saturday… Big bass vibes!
