Marcus Intalex - Soul:R / UK - www.soulr.co.uk
Through tracks like 'How You Make Me Feel' (31 Recs) and 'Universe' (Metalheadz) alongside ST Files, Marcus Intalex brought the soul back into drum'n'bass, and paved the way for the sound that is so popular today. More recently Marcus has ventured into solo production as well with great success. His and ST Files own label Soul:r is one of the most popular labels globally, and the Mistical album due out in 2006 marks the first artist album on this excellent imprint. This is set to be yet another milestone in drum'n'bass history. His versatile Djing style and excellent mixing skills has taken him to gigs all around the globe, as well as at his own Soul:ution nights alongside Calibre which reign supreme in Manchester. Never one to rest on his laurels, Marcus Intalex will continue to pioneer ground breaking, soulful music in all it's future incarnations. This will be Marcus' fourth visit to New Zealand, previously playing memorable sets alongside DJ Lee, Digital, & Klute.
Calibre - Signature / IRELAND
Calibre, real name Dominic Martin, is a drum and bass producer hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland. He originally started producing at a young age and has spent many years refining his sound and got his start on the defunct Quadrophonic label owned by U2. While studying Fine Art at the University of Ulster in Belfast he became intrigued by the music of John Cage, whose influence is acknowledged in the naming of his first album 'Musique Concrete', released on the Creative Source label in 2001.Since his initial releases Calibre has consistently released quality tunes with his own signature style and sound, and eventually set up his own label Signature Recordings, on which his second album, 'Second Sun' was released in November 2005. Calibre is a very diverse producer and has made tunes ranging from soulful vocal melodies to dubby rollers. He has also produced other styles of music notably house as Dominic Martin for John Tejada's label. Calibre has continually set the benchmark for soulful, reggae & techno influenced Drum and Bass and the amount of imitators the man currently has is testament to the pioneering that is integral to every piece of music that is released by this innovator.
