Benny Page absolutely set the standard when it comes to the fusion of Drum & Bass and Reggae, often referred to as Dubwise DnB. His timeless track 'Turn Down The Lights' defined the genre and has been the soundtrack to countless peoples summertimes. He continued to pump out more Dubwise classics such as 'Battlefield' with MC Spyda, 'Can't Test' 'Rub A Dub' and 'Sound FI Dead' with Top Cat. Since then he branched out not only with other areas of Drum & Bass but with his Dubstep productions. 'Panpipes' and 'Step Out' were landmark tracks around the time the genre was really becoming recognised. More recently Benny Page has been putting out huge Dancefloor Smashers as well as still putting out great Ragga influenced tracks. His set will be full of surprises, great music and energy, we can't wait.

Dawn Raid is the combination of long serving Manchester soldiers Kingsize and ADT. For many years they have been smashing raves all over and putting out consistently filthy and quality, Jungle influenced DnB smashers. The 'Tears In The Rain EP' on 36 Hertz recordings is one of their most notable releases and shows their sound at its best. We are really happy to finally have these guys on.

Nuera is Drum & Bass DJings best kept secret. When you hear this guy mix, you will wonder how he isn't a household name yet. His mixing skills are impeccable, his selection is varied and incorporates fresh tracks with classics/forgotten gems and his mixing style always keeps you interested. He came 2nd in the Ram Records DJ Competition and in turn did a live DNBTV set. We are very proud to be bringing him here for his Manchester debut.
