———- Dense & Pika [Drumcode] ———-
Dense & Pika are a British electronic production/artist/DJ duo compromising of producer/DJs Alex Jones (Hypercolour label boss) and Chris Spero better known to many by his Glimpse alias.
The duo first came into fruition in mid 2011 with a number of white label releases. It wasn’t long until they were noticed by Scuba and have since had multiple releases under their belt on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, Scuba’s acclaimed Hotflush imprint and have branched out onto the elusive Hypercolour. Dense & Pika have also been showing off their remixing talents by reworking the likes of Adam Beyer & Ida Engberg, Digitalism, Disclosure, KDA, Leftfield, Maya Jane Coles, X-Press 2 and also Paul Woolford’s ‘Erotic Discourse’, which won the DJ Mag category for ‘Best Remix’ in 2014.
Touring across the globe on a weekly basis has seen the duo play at the cream of the world’s clubs such as the now legendary Trouw (Amsterdam), Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London), Gashouder (Amsterdam) and international festivals all over the world. Gaining club support from electronic music’s finest DJ dignitaries such as Skream, Scuba, Chris Liebing, Breach, George Fitzgerald, Adam Beyer, Dubfire, Jackmaster, Dusky and beyond.
———- Latmun [ViVa Music] & [Lost Records] ———-
We thought we would mix it up and showcase a variety of underground music, so who better than Nottingham star, Latmun.
Latmun, the moniker of Joe Bradley is making his mark through his own interpretation of the House and Tech House soundscape. Both his DJ sets and his own productions have a coherent energy, an infectious groove being the key component causing the crowd to remain captivated, something he has picked up from many sunrises caught in the clubs of Ibiza, and time spent during the early hours in London. His ability to mix eclectically is rooted from many years of DJing and holding down residencies around the midlands, namely the stalwart nightlife institution Stealth Nightclub in Nottingham.
2016 so far has been career defining for Latmun, with all 3 EP’s he’s put out breaking into the top 10 on the Beatport Tech House releases. This started off with his ‘Def’ EP on VIVa, which received support from scene heavyweights like Skream, Claptone, Claude Vonstroke, Mathias Tanzmann, Steve Lawler and many more, it still continues to soundtrack the biggest festival stages today. The Dance & Bop EP on Wow! Recordings had similar success and carrying on the momentum through to his most recent offering via Leftwing & Kody’s
