Mampi Swift, North Base, Altered States, Eek, Salvage, Nimotek & more join Nothing To Lose and Echidna for a huge DnB party.
Grand Theft Audio Recordings is delighted to announce that to celebrate the launch of the label, we have invited one of our heroes to Manchester to play. All time Drum & Bass legend MAMPI SWIFT started DJing in the early 90′s and has since cemented himself as easily one of the top Drum & Bass DJs in history.
Mampi is known throughout for his fast, creative mixing, his on-point and varied selection and being a pioneer of the double drop. He has also got many classic tracks of his own under his belt like ‘Play Me’ and ‘The One’ as well as recent smashers ‘Gangster’ and his remix of Dizzee Rascals ‘I Don’t Need A Reason’.
2014 will see the release of his highly anticipated album entitled ‘History’ which will be released on his own ‘Mampi Swft Recordings’ imprint. Several of the tracks are receiving huge support from all the big names in the scene at the moment and this event will be the perfect chance to hear tracks from the album for the first time!
NORTH BASE is the meeting of minds between Metropolis head honcho Prophecy, Manchester Metalheadz veteran Silver and talented upstart Splice. Their signature sound is Old School rave influenced tracks with modern day electronic production techniques. They have also remixed tracks for many big names including, Ms Dynamite, TC, Benga and Laidback Luke.
ALTERED STATES are a Drum & Bass DJ/Production trio who have been on the Manchester scene for a while now and in that time have played many of the city’s best events and released several of their own productions on a number of labels including Fokuz LTD, BPM Records and Liquid Brilliants.
Grand Theft Audio head honchos, NOTHING TO LOSE & ECHIDNA, will be doing an 80 minute showcase of all the juicy new tracks forthcoming from the Grand Theft Audio Label. Featuring live performances from the super talented LUCY PRICE and ALEC SPLATT.
EEK tried out at the UK’s leading Rap Battle league Don’t Flop in January 2012 and since has made a name for himself battling many of the leagues most notorious battlers. Eek will be performing a rare live P.A showcasing, several of his own tracks spanning multiple genres
Co-owner of new label Short Circuit Records, SALVAGE will be coming down armed to the teeth with fresh dubs to smash the dance floor up into smithereens. Accompanied by one of Manchester’s best MC’s, Harribo. This is a set that’s going to go off!
Though a veteran 140bpm producer, NIMOTEK is relatively new to Drum & Bass production. But what he lacks in experience, he always makes up for in innovation. Expect some huge things from him this year on Grand Theft Audio Recordings and expect his set to be full to the brim of monster dancefloor fillers.
Also playing are up and coming Jungle badman, DEMONICS from Rinse Out, the outstanding HOBBIT from Cataclysm and top producer, HARDLINE with tracks out on Dark Arts Records and Alpha 9 Records.
