Ben & Lex return to Functional with a firing slice of party rocking Breakbeat-Dubstep-Reggae.

From opening the main stage at the Glade festival, winning the 'Best Breaks Dj' and 'Outstanding Contribution To The Breaks Scene' awards at the South West Breaks Awards to their Breakspoll award winning Nuskool Breaks radio show and running their own record label, Ape Music, Ben & Lex could well be the busiest boys in breaks!

Their distinctive brand of bass heavy breaks and dubstep have secured them plays on Radio 1, Ministry of Sound FM, Galaxy FM ,Kiss FM etc, as well as DJ support from all the scenes biggest players and featured on Freq Nasty Breakspoll compilation.

Ben & Lex are true purveyors of bass heavy broken beats; equally at home with a rolling break, half time dubstep and dance hall reggae, always seamlessness blended for our aural delectation. 'Ruffnecks' manages to capture all these elements perfectly, peppered with rousing snatches of ragga vocals, tight rolling percussion, dance hall piano stabs and more squelchy sub then you can shake a stick at. 100% skanking reggae vibes on this dubstep flavoured party beaks number.

With 2 acclaimed albums on Botchit & Scarper under their belts,"Mouth watering beats from the hottest talent around!" The Ticket, Daily Mirror; The dynamic Watford duo Atomic Hooligan are well established as dance music standard setters. AH have graced the FRONT covers of DJ and IDJ magazines, performed live with their 9 piece band at Fabric, officially remixed Underworld. AH turn in a 4/4 tropical broken beat re working, stripping things back on this high octane percus sive workout with hand claps a plenty, rave horns, ragga vocals and truck loads of dirty low end for a tight little funking bum wiggler.

Jinx a.k.a Jinx In Dub has released on Against The Grain, Burrito, Sunday Best, Bassrock and Functional and has worked with Black Canvas and Alien Entertainment and has had huge support all over! Skippy jungle styled breaks are the order of the day here, complete with a heady swathe of atmospherics and an unadulterated, loose yourself in the music breakdown, punctuated by bleeps, ragga vibes, shimmering synth pads on this out and out jungle-tastic raveathon.

Beatz and Bobz Show | NSB Radio | Outselect Guest Mix

1 comments
 


Back from our extended holiday break and slamming full force into the show with a killer guest mix from Outselect...

"Dj Outselect started in 2006, performing in the clubs TUNNEL,FRIDAY NC,RED CLUB,GRIBOEDOV,WEIHTLESS ,QUADRAT,YUME, Underground Openairs and parties. His music is full of broken beat: sometimes it's jolly, light-hearted funk things, bootlegs, booty breaks, sometimes - hard, brutal soundings.

In 2009 he fired his first breaks track, called "Red Mushrooms". In 2010 feat. Kitt Whale - the track "Chicos", and also feat. Electrobit crew - the track "Wild Mixture".

At the moment he's working at new bootlegs, edits and re-rubs, that's a new stage for Outselect."
