Joe started young. He was 8 when a relative gave him a jungle tape from 1996. He listened to drum and bass through his teens and did his first DJ gig at a friend’s house party at 16. Soon after came his first pair of decks. He began to develop a deeper understanding of the genre, and an unquenchable thirst for production knowledge was sparked. Fast forward just 2 years and Joe was quickly recognised by label heads & other respected artists. Joes first release 'Solar Winds' was picked up by the mighty grooverider & featured on his radio 1 show. Since then Joe has fully immersed himself in all areas of d&b, from formulating grimy baselines, to deep dark rolling drums & even bouncy jungle rollers. Joe has received support from top DJs such as DJ Hazard, Callide, Mutated Forms, AMC, Grooverider, DJ Harvest, Nicky Blackmarket, Baseline Smith & many more.

Simpa has been mixing records since 1993. His humble roots began in the underground scene in Salt Lake City, Utah….. yes Utah. House music was his first love, then Goa trance, then Drum and Bass, which has been his drug of choice since 2000. He moved to San Francisco in 2000, then on to Santa Cruz, Portland and Seattle. He took a break to raise a few kids and came back on the scene with a renewed passion. He was welcomed into the DnB scene in Seattle with open arms, playing frequently at the longest running DnB weekly in the US. He has recently been on the bill with such acts as Calibre, Bachelors of Science, and Quadrant. Simpa recently began producing tracks along side Selrahc, another talented Seattle native, and their tunes have an old school vibe to them. Keep your eyes and ears open for this up and coming producer.
Selrahc has been mixing records since 1997. He got his start behind the decks in Abilene, Texas of all places. Originally he was a Hip Hop dj but his love of Industrial music influenced his decision to play Jungle/Drum & Bass. As time progressed so did his ability behind the decks. He is known to play on 3 or 4 turntables at once and incorporates scratching and quick mixing during his live sets. Over the years Selrahc has lived in Texas, Okinawa, Japan, Omaha, Nebraska and most recently Seattle, Washington. He frequently plays at Drum & Bass Tuesdays, the longest running Drum & Bass weekly in America. Not satisfied with just being a dj, Selrahc began writing tunes in 2010. His sound is a bit minimal, a bit techy, and a bit liquid but 100% Drum & Bass. Recently he has collaborated with fellow native Drum & Bass dj/producer Simpa. Be on the look out for more from this guy in 2013!
