The Upbeats:
In today’s heady climate of bass-fuelled dance music it could easily be argued that producer-DJs are the new rock stars. Climbing into that mould with a pair of schoolboy grins on their faces, The Upbeats have already been playing that role for years. Their anything-goes live performances are renowned for mosh pits, topless dancers (sometimes women) and crowd surfing, while their approach to writing hard-hitting, unique-sounding drum & bass is lauded across the globe.

Nicknamed Terror Snake and Downie Wolf respectively, Jeremy and Dylan are not your average, boring producers. Meeting at school through mutual interests in surfing, skating and ‘being gangly teenagers’ Jeremy had to work hard to pull Dylan into the world of drum and bass. But, armed with a stack of Mickey Finn and Aphrodite mixtapes and an unrelenting attitude, the snake soon overcame the wolf’s natural propensity for rock music and, fortunately for us all, a love of fast breakbeats and low-slung basslines soon followed.

This love soon grew into a passion for creating their own music and by 2001 the pair were balls deep writing their own D&B. Fuelled by New Zealand’s isolation from the rest of the world and its staggering natural beauty, The Upbeats’ unique take on 170bpm+ bass music has seen the duo work alongside scene stalwarts such as Ed Rush and Optical, Bad Company, Hive, Gridlock, Bulletproof, TREi, State of Mind and Noisia while releasing tracks across a plethora of the D&B scene’s most respected record labels.

Dose:
Dose is a New Zealand born and bred artist boasting around 55 Drum and Bass releases internationally and having performed across NZ, Australia, Europe and UK for such nights as Ram at Fabric and Shogun at Cable in London. His brand of tech-stepping, full-force drum and bass has been turning heads since around 2006 when the likes of Mr. Friction first began championing his sound and since then its been a relentless progression.

Building on his already extremely successful and fruitful discography, 2012/13 sees Dose sign exclusively to SGN:LTD of the Shogun family. Label owner DJ Friction who after some close collaboration with fellow Shogun boss K-Tee decided to invite Dose to become part of the close knit crew that makes up the movement.

With a slew of releases across labels such as Renegade Hardware, Commercial Suicide, Subtitles and more, Dose’s beats have featured frequently throughout the years in the sets of Noisia, Dieselboy, Pendulum, Andy C and of course Friction. With various forthcoming releases scheduled with SGN:LTD and more leading towards his debut album in 2013 you can be sure to hear his fierce antipodean beats rolling out of a sound system near you very soon and believe us with forthcoming tracks as good as his, an over-Dose has never sounded so tempting.
