DJ RAV STAR - [PRESS PLAY> TO VOTE]
DJ rav*star is an up & coming DJ from West London, who was mainly introduced to the sound of Dubstep through the early-mid Grime scene - along with other musical influences such as Garage, Hip Hop, Jungle and more so, Dub music. Obtaining a pair of Technics not too long ago, he has slowly developed a solid and unique mixing style. In DJ sets, deep and dubby basslines are a favourite of track varieties, although a variety of Dubstep can be heard - All these different forms of musical influences are portrayed by the mixing and selection, ranging from dark & deep sounds, soulful blends, dubby rockers, to jump-up headbanger riddims!
DJ PRESSA - [PRESS PLAY> TO VOTE]
It might have been the rise of the screeching, mid-range-led sound that has in recent years been taking over the image of dubstep that made the deeper, half-step end of the spectrum seem like the less soulful, even danceable option or it might easily have been 'Horror Show'; what is more clear though is the recent reclamation of this sound as the opposite of boring or motionless by a number of up-and-coming producers. The likes of Killa & Instinct, Lurka, TMSV, Myrkur and District are breathing new life into the sound, and Pressa is another name that can be added to that list. With a similarly progressive take on the sub-bass, halftime basics of dubstep and an audible jungle influence in not only his breaks but also his undulating basslines, Pressa is taking the sound forward with him.
