: CHEFAL : rinse.fm, fwd, transition, ringo records, london.uk

One of the pioneering DJ’s of Dubstep Chefal, aka Chef, hails from the
home of Dubstep - Croydon, South London. Chefal’s upfront selection and
skills on the decks have quickly led him to djing extensively both within
the UK and around Europe. He’s resident at THE two pioneering Dubstep
nights in London - DMZ and FWD>> - as well as holding residencies at Slam
It! (Helsinki, Finland) and Voodoo People (Amsterdam, Holland). When
Chefal isn’t playing records, he’s busy making them (actually making them)
at Transition Studios, where pretty much every fresh dubstep record gets
mastered and pressed. Busy man Chefal also finds the time to host a weekly
Radio Show on London’s leading Rinse.Fm as well as manage his own label -
Ringo Records.

more info on chef:

From the early secondary school days, Chefal was spending all his pocket
and dinner money on the latest Jungle down at Big Apple on a Friday. He
grew up listening to stations like Kool Fm, Weekend Rush, Rinse, Upfront,
London Underground etc while playing Mario and Streetfighter in his
bedroom.

Chefal Started listening to and buying House and Garage around 1997, when
it got darker and more bassline influenced but still kept up to date with
the Jungle and D’n'B until bout 2002. Chefal’s sound that he’s pushing
FWD>> foremost is Dubstep and the best bassed out Grimey beats. “For me
it?「どィび「s the bassline that makes me feel a tune.. ”

Chefal hooked up with BENGA and SKREAM many years back through Big Apple
Records and has been the main DJ in their crew, Smooth Kriminals, so Benga
and Skream could concentrate on the production side of things (tho Chef
has starting crafting some bangers himself lately). Chefal rinses out the
freshet dubz first from everybody who?「どィび「s sound he’s feeling including…
Benga and Skream, Digital Mystikz, Loefah, L.D, Plastician, Cyrus, Tubby,
N-Type, Quest, Clue Kid n Cotti, Pinch, Hench Crew, Distance, Hijak,
D’coy, Kromestar n Cessman .. to name a few.

The main ingredients of Chef’s sets are energy and deep sub basslines
whether it?「どィび「s a half step roller or a 4×4 jah shaka style banger, anything
goes if Chefal likes it he?「どィび「ll play it simple. “I play for the crowd and
myself, if I?「どィび「m not having a good time how can I expect the listeners and
ravers to? ..It’s all about Bass weight maaaaan.”

: TERMITE : volume, edinburgh.scotland

When Termite first visited Vancouver several years back, she played some
of the first red gate parties and left quite a lasting impression.
Vancouver was sad to see her go.. but now she’s back! and Dubforms is very
lucky to have her. Alice’s crew in Scotland - Volume - basically have the
Edinburgh scene on lock, running regular successful events that host the
likes of Skream and Benga and many more. Known to mix up dubstep, grime,
baile funk, bmore and more, Termite brings diverse selections to the table
with the skills to match, not to mention her bright personality.

: TAAL MALA & MAX ULIS : lighta! sound, sub-osc

Sealing off the night with Max and Keenan tag-teaming the bass heavy heat.
Expect lots of originals from the crew and lots of energy. Everyone who’s
heard this hard-hitting duo in action knows this is something to look
forward to. ’nuff said.

: DJ ABEL & THE PHONOGRAFF : bruk out, equilibrium

Now THIS should be something as well. A turntablist take on dubstep and
bass music to open the night. Using 3 decks & Serato - which means a
virtual 5 turntable set-up - mixing and cutting up a blend of their own
production with other carefully selected jams, this should get the night
rolling pretty quick. (get there early folks!)

DJ ABEL’s been djing for 12 years, starting back in ‘95 playing skate
comps and b-boy battles, then moving on to DMC and ITF turntablist scratch
battles in ‘99 until ‘04. Then Abel began playing dancehall/reggae along
with an already steady funksoul/hiphop influenced mix. He’s played all
over canada, san francisco and even down to guatemala, and is a regular
face in vancouver’s clubscene. www.myspace.com/blacksharkent /

THE PHONOGRAFF is Mike Jones (real name folks!), who has been DJing for
over a decade now. The name ?「どィタThe PhonoGraff?「どィび「 was given to Mr.Jones by MOKA
ONLY to help represent and signify his love for both music and graffiti.
Originally hailing from Kamloops BC, he has been building in Vancouver for
the last 6 years. In 1999, Phonograff released a critically acclaimed
mixtape called ?「どィタTrain of Thought?「どィび「, selling more then 1000 copies hand to
hand with no distribution, featuring tracks from West Coast underground
legends and his first journeys into his own musical production. ?「どィ?From the
Bottom Up?「どィャ is The PhonoGraff?「どィび「s debut full-length album, featuring the
likes of Moka Only, Kia Kadiri, JC Subliminal, Luckyiam.PSC, Edge 1, Just
B and Coco Love Alcorn. ?「どィ?It?「どィび「s straight up hip-hop.. fusing roots reggae,
dub, latin jazz, electronic music and huge beats with heavy bass and warm
elements, all the while keeping the turntablism and scratching in the
mix.?「どィャ Phono has opened for 50 Cent, Blackalicious, Lady Sovereign,
Alkaholiks, Jurassic 5, Digable Planets, Zion I, Living Legends, Kirby
Dominant, Maestro Fresh Wes, Sixtoo, Mr.Dibbs, Swollen Members, and
countless others. www.myspace.com/thephonograff

: PRINCE SHO : royal platoon

No stranger to mic-handling over the dubstep flavours, Sho is back once
again and guruntee’s the fire. He said so himself.

: LIMINAL SPACES + MARK YUEN + BRADY MARKS : vj team

A solid VJ line-up to compliment a solid night of music. Liminal Spaces
and Mark Yuen have both rocked Dubforms before and are equally excited to
be back. Brady Marks is a fresh face to the series, and known figure in
Vancouver for a wide range of art, theory and musical experiments. (It’s
rumoured that Brady is building a 3D visual environment to react to the
music for this night)
