9/21: BLACK SUN EMPIRE (Blackout Music - NL) + ANT TC1 (Dispatch, Metalheadz - UK) @ Stamina Sundays

Need we say anymore? This week we've got an absolutely gargantuan triple-header coming at you from across the pond. First up we've got some absolute dons of the neurofunk sound from day 1 - the ones known asBlack Sun Empire. Last time they were here, they'd just released their acclaimed 'From the Shadows' LP. Since then they've been hard at work starting a new label which is already no-doubt one of the best in the game - Blackout.

As if that wasn't enough, our friend Ant Dispatch Recordings is returning to F8 - running his own Dispatch imprint, managing Metalheadz, and still finding time to DJ and get in the studio makes him what many have called "the hardest working man in drum & bass." No doubt.

Plus the homie Nick Fury will be inside, bringing the Irish flavors and representing the infamous Spectrum Dublin crew. It's going to be a huge huge huge night!! Support from weekly residents Lukeino & Jamal. BOOM!!!!

(Blackout Music, BSE Recordings - NL)

With “From The Shadows”, containing twelve original tracks aimed for the dance-floor, BSE delivers the ultimate Drum and Bass experience.

Black Sun Empire's sound is as unmistakable as it is without compromise; a combination of dark and impressive themes, vocals, tough electronics and memorable melodies. Collaborations with Noisia, Audio, Foreign Beggars, State of mind, Inne Eysermans (Amatorski), Rido, Thomas Oliver, Youthstar and N.Phect showcase their expanding horizon. Musically,”From The Shadows”‚ sees Black Sun Empire moving towards multiple exciting eras.

(Dispatch Recordings, Metalheadz)!/AntTC1

Ant TC1 along with Hidden Agenda founded Dispatch Recordings back in 2001, Ant originally helped out with the management side of the label before finding his feet within the realms of production; which was a natural progression for him having DJ’d on pirate radio and in clubs from the age of 15 (since 1993). His first release along side frequent studio partner Stress Level appeared on Dispatch after almost 3 years of hard work getting their collective sound where they felt it needed to be in the studio before even thinking about turning on a DAT recorder. After their first release aired they quickly picked up a wealth of dj support on their early material and went on to release for a who’s who list of established Drum & Bass record labels including the likes of Renegade, CIA, Advanced, Critical Records Integral, Liquid V, Commercial Suicide, Good Looking Records, Bingo beats and Samurai Music. By demand remix work started to feature heavily within their output and the duo went on to remix for the likes of Hidden Agenda, Chris SU, Artificial Intelligence, Kabuki, Total Science, Optical & Ryme Time (Jagged Edge), Atlantic Connection, Tactile & DJ Marky.

Ant’s production output has featured on a mass of compilations and mix cd’s compiled by the likes of Shy FX, LTJ Bukem, Total Science, AI, Spectrasoul, Klute and Brian G. Additionally his work has featured very heavily within the BBC radio 1 shows of Friction, Grooverider, Fabio & Bailey on their respective slots over the years. His DJ work has seen him play all over the globe from Adelaide to Los Angeles, from Hong Kong to Budapest, Tel-Aviv to Bangkok and last but by no means least regularly UK wide.

Fast forward to 2013 and Ant is now solely responsible for the running & label manager role of Dispatch Recordings; having released a mix CD compilation, the hugely successful “Transit One” album in 2011 (which topped almost all the usual stores weekly dance music sales charts across all formats) as well as a fine list of consistently quality single and EP releases from the likes of Survival, Break, Octane & DLR , Marcus Intalex, Commix, AI, Chris SU, Zero T, Cern, Dabs, Skeptical, Dub Phizix, Spinline, himself (and many more). Ant has recently remixed material for the likes of Lomax (Loadstar), Sunchase, Cern & Dabs as well as having his own solo work remixed by rising star Xtrah and working on further collabs with the likes of Survival and DLR. Ant also continues to run his own monthly night at ‘Momentum’ in Leeds (which is headed into it’s 10th year) as well as managing the renowned Metalheadz label & it’s events worldwide (for none other than the D&B legend that is Goldie) and still continuing to dj across the globe on an ever-frequent basis.

Yes, we understand if you’re sceptical—everyone claims to be a rule-breaker these days. But try putting into words the music on his and Bok Bok’s inimitable Night Slugs label or any of his tracks and remixes over the past few years and it should quickly become apparent that L-Vis 1990 has been doing things just a little bit differently.2012 saw James dive further into the House music whirlpool, with an anthemic remix for dance Read more
