Over the past two years, Shaun & Bevan aka Glitchy & Scratchy have single handedly broken the “glitch hop” sound in their hometown of Vancouver, BC. Alongside their ever-growing posse of bass and glitch heads, the “Integrated Grime Unit” (a collective which counts among its ranks GlitchHopForum head honcho Dewey dB, as well as bass prodigies Ill-Esha, Jay Wikid, and JmeJ), they promote and shape the face of underground music in their city. No stranger to crowds of sweaty, happy people, Glitchy & Scratchy have a dancefloor sensibility often forgotten in a world of tweaked wobbles and schizfreaked edits.

MASIA ONE is true to her name sake - the first female to be nominated for a Much Music Video Award (Rap), winner of the CCNC PIONEER accolade and constantly redefining the sound and cultural boundaries of Hip hop music. Her most recent album PULAU has reached no. 2 on CBC Radio 3’s Top 30, no. 1 on CJAM (Windsor) radio and remains in the top 10 on SE Asian Radio charts.
Born in Singapore, Masia One became an early fan of Hip Hop after stumbling upon a bootleg copy of Public Enemy’s It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back at the age of 8. A move to Vancouver Canada marked a period where Masia developed as a graffiti artist and b-girl. It was not until her time at the University of Toronto pursuing an Architecture degree, that she took scribbled rhymes to the stage, and began her fast-pace journey into thelife of an emcee. Masia One’s butter smooth flow debuted in 2003 with her independent release Mississauga. Four videos, international bookings and countless media appearanceslater, the emcee is ready to release the story of her journey: PULAU. PULAU, the Malaysian word for “The Islands”, reflects influences including the culture of SE Asia, heated dance hall tempos of Jamaica and the feel good vibe of California. Masia One has toured PULAU across Canada, Malaysia, Indonesia opening for The Roots and Singapore where she headlined the HENNESSY World Stage.
Masia One is now positioned to take on Hollywood, completing her latest album with Los Angeles based record label Kops & Robbers. Grammy award winning producer Che Vicious has crafted an album that features Masia’s remarkable flow over highly infectious dancehall, electro and dance rhythms. As Dr. Dre’s right handman, Che has worked with everyone from Lauryn Hill, Jay Z and Eminem to name a few. This much anticipated release will catapult Masia One into the mainstream as this Singapore- Canadian girl becomes a household name for urban music internationally.
Adam John is a pioneer of deep evolving bass sounds, a skillful producer as well as an advocate of filth in the southwest music scene and a figure of movement in the local electronic arts community. He not only creates slashing beats and wild rhythms for destroying dance floors, but is also committed to supporting fellow artists of similar musical minds through his label Theoretic Records, one of the first drum and bass labels in Arizona.
Perhaps better known by his DnB alias Kid Kryptic, Adam first released his disturbing brand of stuttering stomps on the notorious darkstep/breakcore label Fear Records in 2002. Its success was soon followed by material for Killing Sheep, Hardline, Evol Intent Recordings and the “Get Up” bootleg through Camouflage UK. By founding his own label, Theoretic Records, Adam was then able to promote local talent as well as his own versatile style, keeping the electronic music artists of the area motivated, inspired, and producing dark and disturbing drum and bass.
Soon Adam dove into other bass-heavy genres such as dubstep and glitch hop, finding a world of fresh sounds on the more experimental end of the EDM spectrum. 2008 and 2009 saw his first releases with a variety of hard-hitting indie labels around the nation, including Tuff Love Dubs, Filthy Digital, Shift Recordings, Darkstep.org, Adversion and Zardonic Recordings.
With a new passion for the realm of the glitch and the stomp, Adam now dips his fingers in a myriad of bass-driven genres to create an eclectic, signature sound of bruising forcefulness, haunting chords and lush sonic backdrops. His expert finesse of harmony and discord has not gone unnoticed; Adam’s upcoming EP Moments is set to be released later this year on Muti Music out of San Francisco, an innovative label that is pushing forth a West Coast aesthetic of the crunk and crunchy. His music fits in well in this world of stuttering beats and explosions of bass, with sawtooth basslines and 8-bit sounds that are hashed together in a slight neurofunk sauce and delivered with an edge that is more hard than hippie.
Whether you are in Phoenix or Fiji, the growing, mutating waves of bass music love will soon be lapping at your toes, if they aren’t already. Join Adam John as he explores the depths and heights of the delicious bass-ridden beats, using his versatile talents and love of the craft to deliver a warm and warped experience wherever speakers can be found.
From an early age inaudible had a passion for music and badly tailored suits, the former being a blessing in disguise as, born with a speaker for a head, he was never going to get a job as a Librarian or Taylor. And so, for no other reason than to pad out his Biography and fulfil his love for writing about himself in third person tense, inaudible set out on the long road to becoming a superstar musician.
Starting as he meant to go on inaudible landed his first major gig at the Birth of Christ, after getting much respect from Joseph and Mary (Mary in particular, giggedy giggedy) inaudible decided to get his head down in the studio and work on his production for a casual 20 Centuries or so.
After spending such a long time away from the limelight inaudible found himself hungry to get out there and threw himself back at the scene with a whole host of high profile gigs including warming up for Martin Luthor’s infamous ‘I have a dream’ speech and playing in-between rounds 2 and 3 of the Tyson- Holyfield ’ear incident’ fight. Incidentally during that same period inaudible became the first person to DJ on the moon, Armstrong pulling some mean moonwalks to Inaudible’s bassline bombs.

The creative force behind Domain ID is Mathias Lodmalm from Sweden, who brings a European flavor to our midtempo dancefloor beats. No stranger to the limelight Mathias signed his first international recording deal at the age of 17 and his first releases sold over 250 000 copies, resulting in over 200 shows in 20 countries, he now returns under a brand new aliase and with a tech-funk style that will please many dancefloors.
Generally keeping occupied in creative the endeavors of sound design, being a producer, engineer, mastering engineer, graphic designer, photographer, he now delivers a creative take on electronica varying from 85 BPM to 110 BPM and drawing from a range of influences from Techno to Glitch Hop, to House music and experimental breakbeats.
The Realist are here to tell it like it is. They are the political party that doesn’t want your vote. They are the religion that doesn’t want you kneeling at their altar. They are the uncomfortable truth that you don’t want to hear. Taking no prisoners in their war of attrition against the superficiality and moral hypocrisy of polite society and popular culture, The Realist stay true to their name.
Part hip hop crew, part rock group, The Realist are; producer T.O.B. (The Triplet of Bellville), and rappers Kid Clever and Sinister Dexter.
Wearing their anger and disgust like a badge of honour, The Realist defy genres with their bone-crushing fusion of glitch-hop and electronica. With the power of an apocalyptic opera, their sound is characterized by heavy electronic basslines underpinning orchestral soundscapes layered with powerful lyrics and tortured death metal vocals.
T.O.B. (Triplet of Bellville)
With influences ranging from Chopin, Grieg and Rachmaninov to Richard Devine, Amon Tobin and Autechre, T.O.B. is the musical force behind The Realist. Always striving to push boundaries, T.O.B. gives life, depth and emotion to his music by incorporating live instrumentation and vocalists.
T.O.B. always seeks to evoke extreme emotions with his music. His background as a sound engineer ensures that The Realist’s sound is as technically pure as it is emotionally charged.
Sinister Dexter’s name is derived from the Latin words meaning ‘left’ and ‘right’ respectively. The classical roots of these words also imply ‘evil’ and ‘good’. The theologian of the crew, Sinister Dexter seeks to explore the religious morality and blinkered conformity he experienced growing up in the Cape hinterland. Labelled the dirty white rap machine gun, Sinister Dexter is the byproduct of modern society, a reflection of what the world has become. Unafraid to tackle taboos or speak his mind, you may wish to bury your head in the sand or look the other way, but Sinister Dexter will always be right there to remind you that life isn’t all blues skies and pretty flowers.
Originally hailing from Kimberley, Kid Clever, the self-proclaimed, ’short sh*t with the biggest mouth in the business’, is a ticking timebomb waiting to explode. Always willing to put his life on the line to make a point, Kid Clever applies his razor-sharp street smarts to social ills of all kinds.
The vicious attack dog of the crew, Kid will battle anything that moves. With his ‘never say die’ attittude, even if you could outwit this Clever Kid, you’d never manage to silence him.
