    LIVE BROADCAST of the 5th instalment of The Trailer TV. This time showcasing LIVE interviews, videos and Live DJ sets from Kwake & Jon1st & Skimo.



    The artists:



    Kwake :
    Hiphop drummer & beats producer, Kwake has been drumming for Congo Natti, Jehst, Dels, Aruba red, The Child Of Lov, & Thousand Kings.

    He is also working on his own projects such as : =CoN+KwAKe= (with MC Confucius), Speakers Corner Quartet (supporting for Herbie Hancock, Ornette Colleman, Tate Brittain, Chris Ofili gigs) and Kwake MANAMI bass solo live.

    Some of his beats he will be playing live:



    Jon1st :
    He was finalist twice on the UK and World Online DMC in 2011 and 2012.

    In the last two years alone he has played at established festivals such as Bestival, The Big Chill, The Edinburgh Fringe and Strawberry Fields. He has previously been booked to open up for acts such as Daedalus, MF DOOM, Mosca, DJ Vadim, Africa Hitech, Om Unit, Qbert, DJ Craze, Araabmusik, LV, High Contrast, DJ Format, ARP101, Tokimonsta, Luke Vibert, Kidkanevil, Lorn, Illum Sphere, Kromestar, Doc Daneeka, Gang Colours, Two Inch Punch, Sweatson Klank, etc...

    Jon1st could be best described as a 'DJ's DJ': a selector able to simultaneously capture a crowd with his upbeat selection of tracks crossing numerous tempos and styles across the alternative bass music spectrum while incorporating technical skills developed in his background as a competitive turntablist without breaking the flow of his mixes. In one of his sets you might hear a Flying Lotus record juxtaposed with a Scientist track, contemporary footwork beats blended with 90's hip hop, or scratching sprinkled over dancehall.

    Head honcho of Indecks Recordings, Skimo has rapidly made a name for himself as a rising star in the neoteric post dubstep UK Bass scene. Awarded best Unsigned Artist in late 2011 by the legendary Knowledge Magazine. His dancefloor destroying track "Jump" soon attracted a lot of attention from magazines and established artists in the scene, soon finding himself featured in Notion Mag and on Scatcha DVA's Rinse FM breakfast show as track of the week. He also found himself featured on New Yorks premier clubbing blog 'Dont Sleep NYC' describing his tracks as;

    "A homage to early Detroit sounds spanning a hip-hop wormhole to the time of Dubstep and UK Funky. Full of dark emptiness and rave edge, they fit nicely into a continuing aesthetic of post-noughties hybrid bass minimalisms"
