Artists

Simon V

 

Tübingen

Just like James Bond would only be half the fun without Qs gadgets, German Drum'n'Bass wouldn't be what it is now without Simon V - the ever cinematic German wunderkind. His sound is distinctive, soulful, deep, epic, diverse in style and always a step further than functional audio design pieces for the dancefloor. It's cloudspotting time.

Young Ax

 

Berlin

"I listen to a lot of Jazz and vintage Funk, but also Old School Hip Hop. I try to carry this vibe into Drum'n'Bass music," says Alex, better known among heads as Young Ax. "Back in the days I was fascinated by breaking down and cutting the music. Then, when I was on the road with "No Solo", there was just Hip Hop for me. When I was eleven, I was watching "Beat Street" and it stuck. This easy way of performing music, partying, dancing - similar to Drum'n'Bass today".

Tübingen

DJ, A&R and head of SANTORIN. Since 1993 Telmo A and Lightwood have been continuously building up the regional Drum'n'Bass scene, now attracting a large crowd of Drum'n'Bass enthusiasts with their monthly PRESSURE event. Lightwood is a valuable promoter of the music. In one set he can easily combine the entire spectrum of Drum'n'Bass, from Amen to Z - still focussing on the needs of the crowd.

Double J

 

Tübingen

Jens started out as a drummer for a Reggae-band in High-School. When Reggae became a major influence in Jungle music, he started performing vocals with the SANTORIN posse. He was voted among the top ten of German Drum'n'Bass-MCs, becoming known as a freak out of the ordinary, deep thought lyricist. After officially ending his career as a Drum'n'Bass-MC, he's now focussing on his Reggae band.

Thetaphi

 

Tübingen

Sebastian Falter (and partly Björn Hülpüsch) are known for a huge scale of different styles. On the one hand evil, on the other hand divine, nuskool in the first, oldschool at least, there is nothing, refering to the Drum'n'Bass-genre, these guys wouldn't have touched yet. Their live-acting is a noncategorical experience. It's Drum'n'Bass in the end but they load it in omnicolor.
