**DJ HYPE** (PLAYAZ/GANJA)
DJ Hype began producing in 1989, engineering and co-producing tracks (including chart-toppers such as "Exorcist" and "The Bee") for hardcore staples Kickin', Strictly Underground, and Suburban Base. Although he never lost touch with his breakbeat roots (even going so far as to spin hip-hop instrumentals over house tracks to add a bit of rhythmic flair), it wasn't until he launched his own Ganja label in 1994 (with the single "Cops") that he began seriously focusing on the post-rave possibilities of sampled breaks.
The Ganja label gained almost immediate popularity, primarily through floor-fillers such as "You Must Think First", "Tiger Style" and DJ Zinc's "Super Sharp Shooter." That popularity peaked with the release of their first LP in 1996: 'Still Smokin', a label compilation released jointly by Ganja and cohort Pascal's Frontline imprint. The album became one of the highest-selling independent jungle compilations. Re-released in 1997, its success also led to a major label deal with MCA's Parousia sublabel and the establishment of True Playaz, a DJ Hype-led DJ and production unit also including DJ Zinc, Pascal, and Rude Bwoy Monty.*
**SPECTRASOUL** (SHOGUN AUDIO)
Since their emergence in 2006, SpectraSoul have carved a truly unique position, not only in Drum & Bass, but electronic music as a whole. Having released music on only the very finest and most respected labels in the scene, from Goldie’s legendary Metalheadz, to dBridge’s boundary breaking Exit Records, and Kasra’s ever progressive Critical Music, they went on to become vital members of Friction's irrepressible Shogun Audio imprint. Beautifully deep and etched with groove yet powerful enough to move any dancefloor, SpectraSoul's stunning musical productions are a far cry from the soulless, synthetic rave fodder so many unfortunately associate with Drum & Bass today.
2015 brings forth their sophomore album, 'The Mistress'. Fuelled by a new studio philosophy and fresh creative partnerships, the album meanders through varying tempos and moods, with a crescendo of musicality and their trademark intricacy. 'The Mistress' is set to be another milestone for the duo - one which will no doubt spread waves throughout the electronic music scene.

**MC TEXAS** (AMBUSH FAMILY TREE)
A pleasure to be around both on- and off-stage, the future is indeed bright for this star of the UK music scene. Featured on tracks released on some of the biggest labels in the DnB scene and constantly tearing down dances hosting for the biggest names in the genre. When off the stage, Texas spends most of his time writing lyrics, striving for improvement, and driven on by fellow Ambush Family members Carasel, Stanza, N3gus, Kaydan, Phantom, and Akespeare, expect Texas to have you ballin’ for the ‘ricochet-ricochet’ at every rave you see him at.
After firmly making his mark on the grime scene this Plymouth favourite returns after over 2 years for a drum and bass set once again. Expect some high energy vibes from one of Plymouths favourite mcs
