Acts to watch (If you want to hear new music)
DC Breaks: This drum and bass duo from the U.K have arguably made the biggest record this summer with their latest EP released on RAM Records. "Lock In" which has already reached the #1 spot on the Beatport DnB chart is an absolute monster of a track. "Shakedown", their second release, goes equally hard. Expect these guys to deliver a peak time DnB set filled with DC Break originals including former hits like "Shaman" and "Gambino".
John '00' Fleming: J00F is one of these artists within the scene that people think about when it comes to psy-trance. He's been there through all of the highs, lows, and still manages to tour the world, release music, and support upcoming talent through J00F Recordings. This year he just released a 47 track "J00F Editions" that represents some of the best in psy-trance. Known for his long sets, expect John '00' Fleming to take you on a journey to the dark side.
Smalltown DJs: This Calgary duo has been putting the hours in the studio this year and it shows with a variety of releases on labels such as Fool's Gold and Astronomar's Main.Course. They have recently collaborated with Lisa Lobsinger, the front woman of the Broken Social Scene, in a track called "See Thru", that has since gotten remix treatment by Thugli, Astronomar, The Slow Waves, and more. Combining forces with fellow Canadian talent Grandtheft, the Smalltown DJs released a strong track titled "Flying" on Main.Course available for free. These guys are making moves in 2014, and it will be interesting what else they'll come up with.
