ADDISON GROOVE (50Weapons/ Swamp 81/ Tectonic) UK
ADDISON GROOVE FACEBOOK
Addison Groove (aka Antony Williams) started life under a different pseudonym altogether. Recording as Headhunter, with an LP and 12” releases on the influential Tempa label stretching back to 2007, he achieved legendary status within the dubstep scene. His work at the deeper end of the spectrum graced the label an impressive 7 times, a figure matched only by Skream. This work looked set to continue until 2010 when, seemingly out of nowhere, he crafted one of the biggest bass music tracks of the decade, ‘Footcrab’, under the new name of Addison Groove.
The response to ‘Footcrab’ was phenomenal, receiving critical and commercial success in equal measure across the dance music scene. Getting plays not only from the dubstep DJs that Williams was used to reaching, it also found its way into the record boxes of techno and house heavyweights such as Aphex Twin, Surgeon, Ricardo Villalobos and Mr Scruff, bringing an enormous new audience to his music in the process. Taking influences from the Chicago ghetto tek and juke scenes, Addison Groove’s impact on UK bass music has been colossal and unprecedented, sparking a huge interest in these styles from his peers and the listening public alike.

KURU (Media Contender/ Muse) LA
Long time collaborators Ryan Origin and Jeffrey Francis Tovar wanted to change the way they were participating in music, so the KURU project was born. Combining elements of bass, techno, and progressive dance music, KURU rocks dancefloors and captivates audiences with their unique brand of left-leaning sonics. Busy in the studio since 2008, their collaborations and original music have found their way onto some of the most seminal imprints in dance music today, with exponential growth on the horizon. On stage, their live performances cover ground untouched by others; dual-laptops with synced visuals by Brian Markman create the perfect conditions to get lost in the worlds they design.
