THURSDAY, JUNE 16TH 2005
Featuring for the first time ever in NYC!
BAOBINGA NYC DEBUT!!
Fusetrax | Supercharged Music | Cyberfunk Records | London UK
Baobinga represents all that is exciting about dance music. Not afraid to mash up the styles for maximum rave impact, his DJ sets are known for fusing techno, breaks and garage into a high tempo rinse session.
As a producer, Baobinga has garnered a reputation for powerful tunes in all styles that work the dancefloor into a sweaty frenzy. Releasing on a variety of top drawer labels, including Cyberfunk, Plastic Raygun, Hardcore Beats and Fusetrax, his productions range from heads down stompers through emotional rollers to bouncy beat fests - and they all
attract attention from the big names in breaks and beyond... His remix of Transformer Man's '88mph' has become a fixture in J Da Flex's 1 Xtra garage show, and plaudits have been received from other garage heads such as Oris Jay, Slaughter Mob and Morph.
Baobinga first became involved in music as a child, learning classical piano whilst drumming in a variety of bands. A six month trip to China made him decide to take the music ting seriously and when he got back, he immersed himself into a music course at Salford University. Gradually adapting his love of drum and bass and techno into breaks productions, his first release was the massive 'Nukka' on Plastic Raygun. Since then
his sound has been progressing, along with the burgeoning bassline breaks scene, into the distinctive funk-ridden flavas of now.
With support from the likes of Quest, Phantom Beats, The Freestylers, Atomic Hooligan, Deep Impact, Friendly, J Da Flex...(shall we go on?!?), 2004 is shaping up to be a big year for the one they sometimes call 'The Pineapple Smoothie' - which is what Baobinga means in Shanghainese.

30Hz NYC DEBUT!!
Vertical Sounds | Supercharged Music | Cyberfunk Records |
Originally emanating from Washington DC, 30Hz settled in Bristol UK several years ago and soon became involved with the local music scene. Following a brief excursion back to the states towards the end of last year, courtesy of the Home Office, 30Hz is now here to stay.
30Hz produces breaks with a distinctive edge, drawing favoured aspects (most notably) from Drum&Bass, Dubstep, and Tech-house to build dance floor champions with cross-genre appeal. His productions have been getting huge attention with massive support by everyone from the Plump Dj's to Orbital. 30Hz has released on Vertical Sound (his own label),
Drum & Breaks and Dangerous Drums and his track "No Man's Land" has been included on the forthcoming Heavyweight Breaks compilation on Supercharged Recordings. Forthcoming releases include two collaborations with Baobinga: "Jack Your Body" on Cyberfunk and "All up in your head" on one of the biggest breaks labels around (top secret for now) as well a track on MBN records and a handful of Dubstep labels.
As a DJ, 30Hz has enjoyed residencies at parties such as Get Some! and Context, as well as at his label's monthly events Vertical Sound Clash in Bristol and Wales. Often appearing in all over the shop both live and on-air, 30Hz has gained quite a reputation for providing the harder end of breaks. His sound has taken him all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
The live act involves two DJs, utilising the classic wheels of steel
along side a laptop for virtual mixing and a synth player who provides the 'icing on the cake' with free flowing improvisation and dynamic modulation combining vintage with modern Technology.
With an established reputation for absolutely clinical levels of
production and engineering, expect to see and hear a lot more from 30Hz in 2005.
