Evil! Is a brand new and fresh drum & bass concept at Fuifdok.
What to expect from a party named evil?
How about an international line up with legendary dj’s and fresh new coming talents?
Who are these dj’s?
DJ and producer Grooverider has, over the years, become almost synonymous with the London drum'n'bass scene. A DJ for over a decade and spinning everything from soul-jazz and acid-house to hip-hop and hardcore breakbeat, "Grooverider the Hardcore Provider," as he's come to be known, has followed the evolution of drum'n'bass up from its earliest roots in breakbeat techno and happy hardcore on through to contemporary styles such as ambient and techstep. A residing DJ at some of London's biggest-name clubs (including Rage and his own long-running, highly lauded Metalheadz night at Blue Note), Grooverider's influence, not only on the sound but also the politics and ideology of jungle, is probably rivaled only by Goldie's (and then with not nearly the flamboyance). A DJ since his early teens, Rider (born Roger Bingham) spun everything from acid jazz and deep house with the South London Sound System and pirate station FAZE FM before landing a residency with Rage, an institution of early-'90s hardcore thrown under the umbrella of London's biggest weekly, Heaven. Fired from an apprenticeship in accounting when he couldn't make it jibe with nights out spinning 'til 4 A.M., Grooverider went full-time with DJing when he was hired on at Rage, and began producing music shortly after.
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 Wilkinson 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 Wilkinson's songs featured on Andy Cds Nightlife 5 album and releases including Moonwalker/Samurai, Refuge, Get Into It and the mighty Everytime/Overdose 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 Time, Time Takers She Blows and Example's new single Midnight Run to much critical acclaim. He's also currently working on production projects for new Mercury Records signing Jay Elle Dee 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.
Athys & Duster
Coming on to the scene in 2011 and rockin’ it from the start…
Athys & Duster got on with it instantly collecting gigs at several big Belgian clubs and festivals. They got picked up by AMC for his new label Titan Records and their first release on there got playlisted by Drum & Bass Arena, BBC 1Xtra and several other radio stations.
Sitting in the bag of people like Andy C, Brookes Brothers, Original Sin and Crissy Criss these guys may be the next big thing coming out of Belgium and hitting drum & bass.
Getting nominated and winning “Drum&Bass Arena – Best track of the Year” Award was the finishing touch these boys needed, unstoppable!
Tito started listening to drum n bass in the year 1999, after his friends convinced him to join a drum n bass party somewhere in Antwerp. That was the day the dnb-virus bit him. Fast and heavy drumlines with a furious bass!
Getting realy interested in this style of music Tito bought his first Technics and mixer and started exploring the world of drum n bass. One year later he had his first bookings and now he plays all over the country and confirmed his first international bookings in France, Austria,Holland and Slovakia..
Titos’ style ranges from deep rollers to dark and raw,wobble and jump up, bringing loads of variation in his sets! You can also find him mixing back to back with Echo Virus on regular occasions...
This combination guarantees dancefloor explosions!!
Toxidelic B2B Meddik
Toxidelic got the hang of it pretty soon and when he got into Drum & Bass he got into it the fastest way possible... on the decks.
It didn't take him lots of effort to get the crowd on their feet and so he got to play at practically every event in his home area.
He's also the promoter behind 'Iced', a concept he runs with fellow DJ's +Battery- & Meddik.
Expect raw energy, tight mixing and jump 'THE F*CK' up!
