  1. Goldfinger, Original Member of UK Bass music Pioneers, Virus Syndicate.
    Virus syndicate began their careers on the infamous Sidewinder Tape
    Packs and on the airwaves of London’s premier pirate radio station Rinse FM in 2005 . The hype surrounding Virus Syndicate secured them a two album deal with the internationally acclaimed Planet Mu Records. Virus went on to release ‘The Work Related Illness’ in 2006 and ‘Sick Pay’ in 2008, both of which received critical acclaim fro m the l ikes of The Guardian, NME, The Daily Telegraph and Hip Hop Connection thus creating the demand for Virus Syndicate.

    Virus Syndicate went on to perform at all major European festivals such as Glastonbury (UK), Sonar (Barcelona) and Roskilde (Denmark) and have supported the likes of SnoopDogg, The Game, Kanye West, De La Soul, Cyprus Hill and Dizzee Rascal. Further Virus Syndicate have taken their unique sound to some of the world’s most famous venues such as Fabric, Maida Vale, Ministry of Sound and the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood (LA)

    2010 saw Virus Syndicate independently release ‘The Breakout Trilogy’, which received acclaim right across the spectrum from DJ Mag and Mix Mag to ATM to Blues & Soul and Q Magazine. Later that year Virus Syndicate embarked on their first U.S Tour on the back of their Dubstep smasher ‘Talk to Frank’ getting picked up by Snoop Dogg’s Cashmere Agency. ‘Talk to Frank’ was subsequently released on the LA Dubstep Mixtape alongside US Rapstars EVE, Xzibit and Snoop Dogg himself. The ‘Talk to Frank’ tour took the boys to Miami, Detroit, LA and Vegas. Since then Virus Syndicate have gone on to secure regular tours in the States, supporting Bass music legends Nero across the East Coast in December 2010 before leading into
    their own West Coast winter tour .

    Later that year they toured everywhere between Atlanta to LA on their US Summer tour, further expanding their already strong American fan base. Domestically Virus Syndicate have always been a mainstay within the music scene and have been championed on the radio by the likes of Tim Westwood, Zane Lowe, MistaJam, Mary Anne Hobbs and Jo Wiley.

    They have made the Top Ten on MTV Base’s Chart show and have been playlisted on a number of occasions by BBC 1Xtra and numerous regional stations also. the launch of their own label, Midication (via Global Dubstep Media Goliaths, AEI) and a series of high profile collaborations and remixes to boot. The first, “Like This” with Skism, shot to the top spot on Beatport Dubstep Chart, ousting the likes of Skrillex and Knife Party.

    The second “Venom”, which sees the collective link up with Mark Instinct, was a quick favourite with club and core DJs from U.S to the U.K. Understandably the demand for the Virus has reached fever pitch and has led to U.K, U.S and European tours complimented by more high profile collaborations with the likes of Roksonix (Circus Records), Figure (Circus Records) , Cutline (Speakerbox), Document One (Buygore) and Foreign Beggars (Mau5trap).
