    DJ HYPE

    He was an early DJ on one of London's pirate radio stations, Fantasy FM, and has been popular on the international DJ circuit, landing awards for Best Male DJ and Best Radio DJ (in 1994 and 1995, respectively) at the UK's Hardcore Awards.[2] He also presented on the London based radio station Kiss 100, and was a player in Suburban Base’s compilation series, Drum and Bass Selection.
    DJ Hype began producing in 1989, engineering and co-producing tracks (including "Exorcist" and "The Bee") for Kickin', Strictly Underground, and Suburban Base.
    His Ganja Records label gained popularity, primarily through dance floor fillers such as "You Must Think First", "Tiger Style" and DJ Zinc's "Super Sharp Shooter". Their popularity peaked with the release of their first album in 1996: Still Smokin' , a label compilation released jointly by Ganja and Pascal's Frontline imprint. Re-released in 1997, its success also led to a major label deal with BMG's Parousia sub-label and the establishment of True Playaz, a Hype led DJ and production unit also including DJ Zinc, Pascal, and Rude Bwoy Monty. His 1997 Parousia EP, New Frontiers, with Ganja Kru, reached #56 in the UK Albums Chart.[1]

    Hype is known for his jump up DJ sets, including appearances at the Playaz night at Fabric.

    On 30 March 2009, Hype released a new double album mix compilation on Rhino Records, entitled DJ Hype presents Drum and Bass Essentials.

    WILKINSON

    Hailing from the leafy suburbs of South West London is Ram Recordsʼ new signing Wilkinson. His first insight into making music came at the age of 9 when his parents bought him a drum kit. Mark ʻWilkinsonʼ joined a few bands and was playing at venues as far as the Birmingham NEC and as close as the local old peoples home. This swiftly ended at the age of 14 when Wilkinson discovered his passion for dance music amongst other things. In his final year at college Wilkinson tried his hand at making beats in the college studio, this lead to him buying his first bits of production gear and turning his bedroom into a studio. A few years and part time jobs later, after driving his family mad with large amounts of bass loosening the brickwork of his house, Mark secured himself a studio not far from his home.

    After fine-tuning his production skills, Wilkinson passed a few songs on to Hospital Records via Cyantific, which led to his first release on Hospital Recordsʼ Sick Music 2 compilation. A few months later Wilkinson sent a folder of tunes to Ram Records and within days received a phone call from Andy C inviting him for a meeting at the Ram Records HQ.

    October 2010 saw three of Wilkinsonʼs songs featured on Andy Cʼs Nightlife 5 album and releases including ʻMoonwalkerʼ/ʻSamuraiʼ, ʻRefugeʼ, ʻGet Into Itʼ and the mighty ʻEverytimeʼ/ʻOverdoseʼ doing damage across dance-floors worldwide, winning fans from Skream, Fabio and High Contrast in the process.

    Since then Mark has remixed Chase & Status top 5 single ʻTimeʼ, Time Takers ʻShe Blowsʼ and Exampleʼs new single ʻMidnight Runʼ to much critical acclaim. Heʼs also currently working on production projects for new Mercury Records signing JayʼElleʼDee and Island Records artist Jess Mills.

    Now hotly tipped to do big things across drum & bass and electronica, Wilkinson is also busy working on his debut album for Ram Records and continues to tour worldwide from Sydney to Berlin, Barcelona to Brighton with his dynamic and energetic DJ sets.

    One to watch for 2012.

    MAMPI SWIFT

    The prolific "Mampi Swift" aka Phil Anim formally known as Swift The addition of "Mampi" to his name is not a coincidence ... the term that means "big strong and quick" depicts everything about him from his pure pyhsique to his amazing "double-dropping" Djing skills

    We will see a lot happening with Mampi Swift and Recording List Charge This year he has spent the last 12 months back in the studio working his next highly anticipated album Working heavily in debt and 720 degrees of Music - this duo is sure to be a surprising number of people over the next few months

    With the current Charge release "Stay Forever" from guilt to fly off the shelves and all his classic tunes regularly being played out around the world where jags stopsome guy

    careful not to over expose his new tunes - they are rarely released prior to promo's - this guy is a very smart businessman, he relentlessly still plays with dubplates / vinyl and refuses to use CDs when you playing gigs - he wisely trying to keep the record industry alive for future generations

    It started out as a DJ in the early nineties Swift landed a job at the now defunct Lucky Spin record shop, this was very helpful as full access to the studio next to the house engineer Pete Parsons (aka Voyager) was part of the package, this became a valued learning because of the inspired artist After several releases on various famous brands his hunger grew, and he set up thehina's own recording label Charge

    Swift describes his style as "Plain Rolling" and yet simple catchy beats are an important element to his overall sound that's the unique distorted basslines people notice

    Swift until now has been working all alone in his productions develop a style that is very own He has produced all current versions of the charge label and three on his second imprint Blade Recordings He now looks to expand the Charge empire by taking out new fresh talents.
