TERROR TONE


One fateful night, after experiencing the energy of the pulsating dance music pouring out of the speakers at a rave at the Ontario Science Centre, Terror Tone was gripped with a compelling urge to explore the depths of electronic music for himself. He started producing drum & bass music and went on to host a radio show at the University of Windsor, which went on to win titles in both “best new show” and “best electronic show” at the CJAM Radio awards in 2006.
His love for Drum and Bass quickly evolved to other genres in the rave scene to what is now quite a broad range of styles. Sitting at the computer for hours with his essentials: Cubase, multiple synths, and loads of coffee – Terror Tone churns out unparalleled original beats at a pace that would intimidate most.

Pulling influence from Drum & Bass, U.K Garage, and Dubstep – Terror Tone has created a sound reminiscent of the past, but in a refreshing, innovative style all his own. The arpeggiatted bass wobbles, fear inducing synth stabs, and intricately woven percussion, invoke an old school rave nostalgia.

From his productions, it’s clear that he doesn’t hold back – but instead indulges in every parameter available. His dedication to music is unrivaled: a true slave to his passion, Terror Tone’s social life often takes the back seat to his work. That’s not to say that when he’s out he isn’t having a good time though. Terror Tone’s, better known to his friends as Luke, is highly approachable, admirably optimistic, and loves to share his love of music with everyone.

Keep it locked to http://www.ttbeats.com to stay updated on his latest productions and gigs!

**Much love to Kaleigh for that bio!!

SONIC 86

Sonic 86 are 2 guys from Dublin Ireland who first crossed paths through aquaintances and strook up a friendship over their love of everything electronic. They began playing in clubs around the city hosting their own night bringing techno to the masses and playing on a pirate radio station in a toolshed in someones back garden. They are relatively new to the production game and began twisting knobs and turning dials in 2008 trying to ammalgamate their love for the hard sound championed by the likes of all time heroes Dave Clarke and Jeff Mills with the infectious party vibes of a Dj Godfather joint and the foundation rumbling bass tones of Si Begg. They understand how the current music climate works and where it seems to be heading too, and embrace genres from the past and mix them with current trends to create a new style that as yet has no name. Sonic 86 have recently signed to ON THE BRINK fo 2 remixes as well as  releasing original material and remixes with INTELLEGENIX. The two have recently collaberated with Syntonics and Dj Nasty.

84.85

Toronto hip-hop electro duo 84.85 rock parties. It could be in a converted autobody shop, a sweaty basement or on a club stage, but it’s guaranteed to hit you with fist pumping lyrics, drop it to the floor baselines and break your neck drums. One-way or another, they will move the crowd and they will rock the party.

Jay84 and Cass started making music together while attending Carleton University in Ottawa. After months of carving out a vintage hip-hop sound, the pair realized that their influences were far more wide ranging than they were giving themselves credit for. After remixing all of their existing songs for a dance party, 84.85 realized where they had gone wrong: they weren’t having enough fun yet. Nobody listens to one thing anymore. Punks bump hip-hop, and hip-hop kids blast electro. 84.85 are no different. They make music to pay homage to their influences.

After almost a year of pounding the streets of Toronto with their graduated sound, 84.85 have made a name for themselves as tear-the-club-up party starters. They’ve played alongside Nadastrom, Stretch Armstrong, Jokers of the Scene, and Peer Pressure to name only a few. Jay and Cass are currently rocking parties and blowing speakers around Toronto and working hard on new material.

I had my first tape with newcleus,shannon,grandmaster flash,jonzun crew. damn, that was so different to all I ever heard before! in the late 80`s I was more into that hip hop thang and I started to write my first rhymes. rappin over instrumental beats from ice t and public enemy. 1992 I bought my first mixer.  I started that mixing and scratching thang.

DRUMATIX SIX

http://www.myspace.com/drumatixsix

Drumatix Six was born in the Steel City; his Papa was a Steel man. His style of electro-industrial music was sculpted at an early age by his hometown of Hamilton’s industrial landscape of burning smoke stacks and flashing lights. D6’s last album Neighbourhood Threat was listed on Junodownload.com’s recommended Electro downloads for February, 2010. D6 has been praised as being “better than most of the Electro you can find coming out on wax from internationally respected labels” ~ Exclaim Magazine.

Drumatix Six’s latest EP, I Sold My Soul For ROBOT CONTROL, features remixes by Snuff Crew and Darank. I Sold My Soul For ROBOT CONTROL resonates like a warning beacon echoing it’s signal, from the future, through time and space. The album features experiments with noise, cold bleak strings paired with distorted bass guitar, overdriven electric violin and taunting lyrics, creating a soundtrack for the downfall of civilization as we know it. Let’s sit back and enjoy the ride.

Drumatix Six’s musical roots began in punk, he formed and played bass for Sector Seven.  D6 was introduced to electronic music during the heady days of the 90s and traded his bass guitar for a TR-606 DRUMATIX and started programming his first electro beats. He sought new sounds and found solace in the Electro coming out of Detroit.  Bringing these electro records back to Toronto and Hamilton he was met by much resistance from the techno hierarchy of that era. However he persevered and became an electro pioneer in clubs around Ontario playing at his own nights and trying to sway the crowds away from the largely techno and house sounds pumping through the clubs at that time.  In 1999 through a twist of fate and one mixed tape handed in to a record store, he was asked to play an opening slot for Dj Digital and was also introduced to Intellegenix record label owner Cryo.  Cryo and Drumatix became instant allies and soldiers for the Electro onslaught that was soon to come, Djing and playing live at hundreds of parties, as well as organizing shows with acts like Dj Godfather, Legowelt, and Orgue Electronique.

A few years back some personal hardships nearly killed Drumatix Six and left him in a bad state with no ability to work on his true love of writing new rhythms and soundscapes.  Never one to go down without a fight, he overcame these battles and rose triumphantly. Stronger and wiser than ever before, he rebuilt, Street Thunder Studios, and started recording his new EP Neighbourhood Threat for Intellegenix.  After the release of Neighbourhood Threat, Drumatix Six’ life started overflowing with request for remixes, and offers from international record labels.

Since the beginning of 2010 Drumatix Six has released two EP’s; Neighbourhood Threat and the more recent I Sold My Soul For ROBOT CONTROL. The attention that was garnered by Neighbourhood Threat, allowed D6, to release 8 remixes this year for amazing artist like SNUFF CREW (DJ gigolo & Immunity), PROTOTYPE (Battery Park), as well as SYNTONICS, TERRROR TONE AND BRAKEMONSTER (Intellegenix).

DVW

http://www.dvwrocks.com

You might know DVW from his mixtape series called “FUCK YEAH”, from a production that made its way to top music blogs or from one of his DJ appearances. While DVW has been DJing and producing for quite a while now, it got pretty serious since 2009 when he became a resident at Switzerland’s legendary Wasserwerk Club.

Regularly playing in front of an over-excited crowd teaches you a lot, for example finding club hits before everyone knew they were. Playing on a beach in India or at a police raided warehouse party in Sweden certainly didn’t damage DVW’s skills either.

The next step after discovering dancefloor fillers is actually creating them, and just that is the next big thing on DVW’s list. He’s now aiming to overtake the world’s clubs with his own tracks.

Since 2009, he has had the honour to support acts such as: Midnight Juggernauts, Danger, The Proxy, Stereo MCs (DJ Set), Don Rimini, Data, Princess Superstar, Make The Girl Dance, Solange La Frange, Fagget Fairys, Cyberpunkers, Acid Kids, Moullinex & Xinobi, Malente, Sexinvaders and many more.

DA GOBLINN

http://www.myspace.com/diskogodfather

Da  GobliNN was resurrected from the depths of rhythm in 2009.  He had been making people move and be moved since 1992.  Years prior would be spent in moments of imagined flight with his head between the speakers, listening to moms disco albums.   Even at the tender age of twelve, he crafted the act of separating the channels, on the tape deck of his stereo.  Little GobliNN would then split rhythms recorded from different records, spinning them forward and backward.  This amazed him as he created his own little pieces of innovative sound.

When it came time, he got busy making music with his first four track and Ensonique sampler with an old Korg synthesizer (later used akai mpcs, other keyboards like  Nord Lead) than computers.   Still having to endure high school, he cut his first demo.  To his amazement it was picked up by Dave Rave Ogilvie from Skinny Puppie who worked with Nine Inch Nails.  Trent ReZnor himself listened to Da GobliNNs demo and loved it.  As life sometimes gets in the way, the merger at the record label put a hold on his career at that time.

Over the years he released several fantastic demos.  Many of his tracks were played and enjoyed on college radio.  Princess Superstar noticed his talent and he played keyboard for her.  It was very inspiring for him to be picked up and supported by Felix Da Housecat.   Numerous years were spent fostering his talents in the studio, with the pleasure of working with several accomplished artists, such as; Dee Dee Ramone, Chriss Speding, Bedouin Soundclash, and Jackalope.  While working on those remixes, he enjoyed playing keyboard for Treble Charger, Dave Rave Ogilvie and countless others.

Even as the Goblin was still not yet singed, he then got picked up by BugEyed records in 2005 and released Prty Prty Grrl, which was supported all over the world under the name Hop Frogg.  The GobliNN has never given up his ability to create music that is relevant then and now.  Today he is so thrilled with the direction music is going.  It’s a dream come true for him to hear wonderful inspired new sounds everywhere!

In his late teens, he obtained a copy of sound edit 16 for mac and started creating music. Not long after that the name The Junglegenius was created. At the end of high school, he obtained a pc and started building a workstation of my own instead of taking up space on my parents’ mac. Always playing around with official titles for his work to be made under and came up with Bloody-L. —-Time passes—- In the summer of 2007, he met DJ and producer C.O.I. and was introduced to Dubstep. At the time he thought it was a pleasant departure from Jungle and started to persue an interest the music. Within that year he composed two dubstep pieces; his first being an unofficial remix of “Gimme ‘di Weed”, and the second being a more traditionally dubby piece aptly titled “Dubb-E”. The Next year at the same time he met Jawbone, who gave him some positive feedback on the tunes, which in turn encouraged him to keep it up. However it wasn’t until after finishing up a few of his unfinished jungle tunes, a crazy newyears party and making the Dubslingers Wednesdays at Thymeless a regular event for himself, that he really started to get into dubstep. Since then he has finished a few more of his own pieces and one collaboration with C.O.I.. Most recently C.O.I. and Bloody L have decided to form a partnership under the name “3rd Person”… Watch Out!

On top of nearly biweekly gigs in Winnipeg, this past year he’s performed both Live PA and DJ sets in Montreal, Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton, Regina, with Motion Notion 2010 (AB) and Entheos Gathering 2010 (BC) on the summer festival circuit.

He has opened for artists such as Infected Mushroom, Hallucinogen, Vibe Tribe, Beats Antique, Deedrah, Sensient, Excision, Datsik, and Ill.Gates.

Chris Komus is also involved in pushing the psychedelic and dubstep sounds as co-promoter and resident DJ of BassFace Productions and Winnipeg Psychedelic Productions, the premier crews in Winnipeg currently promoting dubstep and psychedelic trance.

GOBS THE ZOMBIE

http://www.soundcloud.com/gobs-the-zombie

Gobby Z has been thrilling raves and clubs as a top DJ and MC for over
a decade. By 2003, as Gobstoppa, he was taking bookings across North
America, while also holding residencies with two of the continent’s
legendary promoters, Hullabaloo! and Goodfellaz. The crown of North
America’s top hardcore MC was his until he died a tragic death in
2006. Fortunately for us Gobs rose from the dead to take over the
stage as Gobs The Zombie. Since then, no dancefloor has been safe from
his insatiable appetite for bass, beats and brains.
