Dawn Raid is ADT & Kingsize a Jungle/Drum and Bass collective based in the UK’s city of Manchester. Dawn Raid was formed in early 2006 to try and create a sound that the guy’s felt was missing from modern Drum N Bass. Hard work in the studio in order to find a sound that represented them best, and a constant push with their local performances, helped to elevate the group further. This lead to well received sets at the legendary Warehouse Project, APE at the Manchester Apollo and Sankey Soap, as well as Platoon, Hit + Run, Religion and Oh My God! club nights. @NBAudioUK / / For all press enquiries contact and/or As of late Dawn Raid’s production has continued to gain real interest from the scene’s a-list with regular plays on BBC Radio 1Xtra from long time supporters Bailey, Crissy Cris, (long time mentor) Sappo and L-Double, with their tracks also creeping into BBC Radio 1 sets hosted by Nihal and BBC Homegrown presenter Ras Kwame. During 2010 through to mid 2012 Dawn signed to DJ Vapour’s 36Hertz Recordings and subsequently released their debut single ‘Breakdown’ featuring Leanne in late 2011. Upon leaving the label in May 2012, Dawn turned their attention to focusing on building their release portfolio… whilst keeping a keen eye on constructing enough of an arsenal to start their own label Hocus Pocus in late 2012/early 2013. Mark XTC Mark started his DJ-ing career at the tender age of 15 playing in places such as Sequins (Blackpool), Fantazia, Mythology and the legendary Hacienda, where in the late 80's he won the North West DMC DJ Championships. This is when Mark decided that DJ-ing was his life. The next for Mark was producing his own music with his DJ group "The Mix Factory" (Of Sunset 102FM) where his mix of the Mix Factory track "Take Me Away" reached number 41 in the UK singles chart and gained some success in the American charts. As well as producing he has DJ'd all over the world for example, annually in Malia (Greece), Ibiza, USA, Brussels and all across Europe for some awesome nights such as; Helter Skelter, Dreamscape, The Eclipse, Pure X and Fantazia. Mark was also helping spread the sound of music in the North West by managing both Spin Inn and Eastern Bloc record shops. This is when 'DA INTALEX' was born. Two guys doing what they loved, producing and spinning Drum & Bass all around the world. DA INTALEX presented a Friday and Monday night Drum & Bass show on Kiss 102 which changed to Galaxy 102 from 1993-2000. DA INTALEX founded Intalex Recordings with tunnes being brought out constantly such as, 'I Like It Remix'. 'New Dawn' was released on Jump Up Records and also 'What You Gonna Do' on Flex, which has gone down in history as one of the "all time top ten Drum & Bass tunes". Sadly DA INTALEX went their separate ways but Mark signed to Dread Recordings/Penny Black Records with DJ Ray Keith with music such as "Come On E.P" which gained Mark interest from the mighty Dillinja himself who then signed Mark to Valve/Beatz Recordings and released "Keyz" and "Roll Dem Beatz", as well as most recently underground hit "Dark Shadow" under his new guise "Snap Shot ft Tonn Piper" on NB Audio. Nian Dub Straight out of the North West, production duo Nian Dub formed in 2013 to bring some deadly vibes to the city of Manchester. The duo consists of brothers Rory and Tim O'Neill, who have individually been tearing up dance floors across the North West for the last 5 years, with appearances at nights including Foundation, Relapse, Metropolis & Red Eye to name a few. The lads are set to drop their debut EP on Manchester's very own NB Audio this December, featuring collaborations with lyrical bad man Mr Fox and the mighty Kuntri Ranks. The duo seamlessly fuse together a range of styles from dub to jazz, all served with a side order of stomping breaks. Stay locked Rolaz Recently been introduced to a serious home grown Manchester talent in the form of future production pro, Rolaz. A beat maker and producer, Rolaz encompasses and surpasses many musical genres including Hip Hop, Drum and Bass, Jungle, Ambient, Avant Garde, and Electronica to name a few. Beats come equipped with flawless production values and its immediately clear by having a quick scan through the man’s back catalogue that Rolaz is not afraid to experiment and change it up. Red Eye Hi Fi is Sound system based in Manchester pushing Reggae influenced bass music. Drawing inspiration from Dub to Dancehall to Drum & Bass, Red Eye HiFi’s style is both unique and versatile. Their original take on Sound system music has seen them play across the UK & Europe and their state of the art sound system has seen action at club nights and festivals alike. Working with some of the UK’s top artists, Red Eye have releases with Irish Moss Records and NB audio and are putting their mark on the UK scene with their distinct and forward thinking approach.
