Since 2011, DJ Sweetpea has held her own as the 'Princess of Rude FM' on the 20 year veteran station. Her passion for fresh underground music and love of rolling basslines is heard in all her mixes. Live, Sweetpea feeds off the crowd's energy and loves to drop into dark, minimal sections.

She has stayed true to the music she loves in any crowd she's played to. She's played alongside some of the biggest names in the game at well-loved venues including Electric Brixton, Hidden, Egg, 93 Feet East and Cafe 1001.

In October 2012, Sweetpea was a featured artist for Lisa Nyx's female troop Syrenz. Since then she has gained a residency with Noise Brixton at the famous Dogstar. This girl is a true ambassador for the ladies, the scene and the music she holds dear.

AutomAte Podcast 027 - Ortokore
July 22, 2013 01:46 PM PDT
itunes pic

In a violent city from a country forgotten by many, Oscar Cartagena a.k.a. Ortokore has developed a fruitful musical career as a DJ and producer in his native Venezuela, where not only was he the pioneer of the early hardcore/gabber movement in Caracas around 1998, but through years of hard work, has become one of the fundamental pillars of the Drum and Bass scene in the country. Taking advantage of the musical richness of his natal Caribbean region and his expertise in afro-cuban percussion and drumming, this producer has known how to bring himself up, avoiding lost bullets, facing corrupt policemen and moving himself, day-to-day in a lawless city, empowered by his music and those in the scene that keep it together in such a dangerous city.

Now, vested as one of the authorities in the Drum and Bass scene of Venezuela, he is rising up as one of the new names to watch in the global scene. Ready to take all the wisdom of the streets of Caracas together with the Latin flavors that brought him up, his vision is to bring to the world stage a little bit of what is to be raised in Latin America in these times; always playful, always fun, always ready to party, but keenly aware that the times aren’t good – that things are extreme, violent and hardcore.

AutomAte Podcast 25 - D.R.O.P.S
February 01, 2013 04:48 AM PST

D.R.O.P.S is a recently formed collective of three like-minded, forward thinking musicians, Teksteppa, Cemtek and Arookai, with very different musical pasts. The sum of these parts equals a deep techy party vibe.

Teksteppa has been producing DnB for a number of years, with releases on Blue Cheese Records, UKDNB and more. Recently his releases have gained DJ support from S.P.Y, Optiv, Muffler, AMC, Mutated Forms, Danny Wheeler, Hazard and Mind Vortex, amongst others. He has had tracks top out at numbers 11 and 32 in the Drum & Bass Arena charts.Teksteppa is a force to be reckoned with and it seems that this is just the beginning for him.

Arookai AKA Mike Smythy has been heavily involved with the music industry for years and, although relatively new to DnB, has had countless releases on highly respected labels in other genres. He is an important part of the freeform hardcore scene, has had mixes featured in the top 5 dance compilations on iTunes and has played all over the UK. Arookai is a music junky, regardless of genre. Expect eclectic twisted sounds coming from his direction this year!

Cemtek AKA Scott Geden is a purveyor of dirty, techy basslines and FX fuelled atmospheric naughtiness. When he is not glued to his studio he is usually found on the decks and has an extremely keen ear for music. His musical past has taken him through numerous production courses and after years of producing hip hop he has slowly moved towards DnB. Cemtek will become a name to look out for.

Collectively they spend every waking minute in the studio, they have bookings coming up in London, Bristol and Stratford upon Avon and will be looking to release some serious sounds this year!

AutomAte Podcast 024 - Esion
December 27, 2012 02:10 PM PST

Bristol-based DJ, producer and AutomAte Tech label boss.

Esion has been on the scene, under various aliases, for well over a decade. His DJ career has touched a long list of UK venues and has spanned a variety of genres including dnb, dubstep, breakbeat, hip-hop, hard dance, hardcore, freeform and techno. These days he plays mainly dark, techy & industrial dnb but expect surprises, he's just as likely to drop a cheeky glitch-hop or booty-shaking ghetto-funk track. Diversity is his middle name and he knows what an audience wants better than they know themselves.

Esion is equally at home in the studio as on the decks, embracing the full range of technology from analogue synthesisers to digital outboard to modern software tools. As well as crafting his solo productions, he loves to collaborate and has worked with many artists across a variety of genres.

Fast forward to the present day and Esion has finally put down some roots, establishing himself alongside Deficit as part of the AutomAte crew. The AutomAte Tech label is primarily his vision and demonstrates what drum & bass means to him.

Based in northern France, Square started his drum & bass journey in Lille, taking part in live events and getting involved in studio collaborations.

Deviant Nature A.K.A Jay O'Sullivan started writing electronic music toward the end of the 90's. It was an inevitable progression, he'd always been in love with music, and had been buying and mixing records since 1996. Jay's interest in creative expression has been the catalyst for numerous projects, gigs and collaborations across several genres and aliases. For his Deviant Nature persona, the main focus is the the darker realms of drum n bass: a tapestry of powerful beats, nasty basslines, rib-rattling subs, brain tweaking synths and a certain twisted funk that makes you want to simultaneously smile and grimace. Bass Face!

Resident with Sub:Bass:Invaders and owner of Blackbelt Recordings, Deviant Nature is also currently working with This Chris, together forming Smash Syndicate. Current & future projects include DnB, drumstep and fresh dubstep material including collaborations with vocalists & other musicians. Lots of exciting stuff in the pipeline from both Smash Syndicate & Deviant Nature in the near future.
