Stanton Warriors – LIVE @ Roxy Prague – 19.3.2005

 

 

The Stanton Warriors have discography about as long as my arm ! Consisting of Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley, the duo have performed internationally at festivals and parties in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. Their name was taken from a manhole cover, made by Stanton Ironworks, which seemed fitting with their style of underground, cutting edge music.

The is so much to be said about this duo and their influence in electronic music today that i could go on forever….
This mix from back in March 2005 was recorded LIVE at Roxy, Prague and showcases the typical Booty Bass Breaks sound from them at that time. Enjoy !

EK – 6th & Fairfax Radio Show Bijou Breaks October 2006

 

EK is Eddie Rasguido raised in Melbourne, Australia and grew up on a staple diet of breakdancing, hip hop and graffiti. Starting up his own crew RKS (Ryming, Kuttin and Scratching) Eddie found his home behind the turntables and by 1991 RKS had performed at the usual local underage jams, a small amount of club shows culminating in a Second Place in the DMC Competitions (entered in the group category). By the end of his High School years Eddie was sold on music as a career and so after completing Year 12 he enrolled in the Melbourne School of Audio Engineering and a year later graduated.

Eddie was still making hip hop and had formed a production team called Rebel Base with DJ Excel. His musical taste soon became more diverse starting off by listening to Techno and he soon purchased his own analogue keyboard. Messing around with hip hop beats he was now crafting a hybrid of breaks and beats sounds, that still had the hook of Hip Hop.

His debut CD, Decoder and the lead track “Future Nation” was instantly picked up by Triple J Radio Australia and lead to the inclusion of 3 tracks on JJJ’s Mix Up Tweak compilation. In his spare time he was often asked to provide cuts and scratches for Sonicanimation’s recordings and was also a fixture when the sonic boys expanded their line up for special shows, like Live At The Wireless and the supports to the Chemical Bros.
