We wanted to bring the best of straight up jungle to Edmonton, just the way you like it! Huge drums, thundering bass lines, and the thickest vibes!
For our next event we have one of the UK's most celebrated Jungle/DnB artists making his first ever YEG appearance - after years of requests from local fans we are stoked to finally present:
[Critical//Dread//Formation//Creative Source, UK]
Based in the east of England, Bladerunner has been dj-ing/producing for twelve years, tearing up dance floors across the country and abroad.
In 2004, Bladerunner’s talents were spotted by Ray Keith. He was signed to Dread Recordings and remixed jungle classics Renegade Terrorist, The Chopper and Dark Soldier. His debut album Analog Bass was released in 2009.
He went on to remix other big tracks such as Black for DJ SS on Formation Records and Sound Control by Randall and Andy C.
As well as regular airplay on BBC Radio 1, 1 Xtra and appearances on Kiss100 and D&B Arena TV, this artist has featured in Knowledge magazine and ATM with cover mix CD.
Bladerunner’s sets showcase many of his original compositions and exclusive remixes with consistently heavy beats and punishing basslines,
His own compositions and collaborations include crowd favourites – Spartan Law, Mercenary Dub and More Prophet. Recent hits Snake Fist and Back to the Jungle also topped the BBC Radio 1 Drum & Bass charts!
With support for his music from all the A listers on the scene, including Andy C, Ray Keith, Fabio, Bailey, Bryan G, Randall and Roni Size, Bladerunner is one of the rising stars of Drum & Bass to look out for..
One of YEG's most acclaimed producers, Sureshock has been honing his craft for over a decade while releasing devestating material on Dread, Machinist, 117 Audio, Asbo Records, HumDrumz, Roughneck Rollaz, UFO recs and more! His sound can be described as old school vibes meets new school production, capturing the essense of jungle and placeing it in the modern context to murderous effect. Known for sticking to the studio we've finally convinced him to make a much welcome return to the decks to showcase what he's been working on in the lab - trust us, its MASSIVE!
Joinng them are YEGDNB selector's:
