Bristol UK - Critical, Exit, 50Weapons
Something's happening to the faster side of dance music. Maybe it's the hyperactive influence of juke's chopped-up 808s, the embrace of dubstep's half-time flow at a higher tempo or perhaps it's simply the ongoing evolution of the mutation started by dBridge and the Autonomic podcasts. Whatever the origin, that spectrum of music between 160 and 170 bpm is sounding utterly vital once again.
Sam Binga has placed himself firmly at the centre of this new wave, with releases on some of dance music's most respected underground labels - 50 Weapons, Exit and Critical. His sound spans the anthemic rowdiness of tracks like 'AYO' and 'Lef Dem', to the deeper explorations of his collaborations with Om Unit, and has attracted the attention of artists such as Zed Bias and CHVRCHES - who have both hit him up for remix work - and Kode9, who featured his tune '11th' with Addison Groove on his critically acclaimed Rinse CD.
If you're fully in the know, or if you pay attention to wider movements in the music world, you'll realise that there's some serious weight behind the Sam Binga name, with countless gigs and worldwide tours covering pretty much the whole spectrum of underground dance music under his belt. But that's not important right now: what's important is that mix of dirty-south swagger, Chi-town footwork and UK pressure people like Sam Binga are bringing to the table. Fresh, weird and strictly fire on the dance floor.www.soundcloud.com/sam_bingawww.facebook.com/sambingamusictwitter.com/sam_binga

Detroit, MI - Architecture, 31 Recordings, Metalheadz, Tectonic, Loose Square, Renegade Hardware
Dj/Producer for 10 years, born and raised in Detroit. I've written mainly drum & bass for various labels such as Goldie's Metalheadz imprint, Hospital, Renegade Hardware and many other labels that do strictly drum& bass, but have recently branched out to writing many different tempos for various labels like SMOG, Loose Squares and Pinch's Tectonic.
In late 2012 I joined the Urban Tribe project with Stingray, and other contributors to this project are Moodymann, Carl Craig, and Anthony "Shake" Shakir.
All in all, I'm tapping into new sounds as much as I can...!soundcloud.com/sinistarrwww.facebook.com/sinistarrsinistarr.bandcamp.com/twitter.com/Sinistarr_Music
