1  General / The Forum / lower the tone 5/9/14 ft dj storm (metalheadz) on: August 30, 2014, 12:54:27

Lower The Tone returns in September 2014 with a Charity Special hosting Female Vs Male DJ battles all night in room one!

Expect the usual mulit-genre mash-up of everything Bassy and Bouncy including Drum & Bass, Techno, Breaks, Electro, Ghetto Funk, Disco and bassline.

DJ STORM - (Metalheadz)

JAMES WEST - (WooDog Recordings)

FORTRESS - (Beat Nyx)

BEAR TWISTS - (Ghetto Funk, Tremor Soundsystem)

(Father Funk & Chimping)

MISSCHIVERS - (NE-Xcuse Records)

GRAHAM ACIDIC - (Polymeric Records)

SHADED - (Red Dread Audio)

EXPOSURE - (Rescued)






Hosted by CARASEL MC - (AFT, Ambush, GRAM)



Storm has always been one of the most influential DJs within drum & bass, known for tight mixing skills and an exclusive selection. Affectionately dubbed the ‘First Lady of Drum & Bass,’ she represents Metalheadz at their residencies, label nights and tours as well as countless solo gigs. Having been involved from the very start of the label alongside her great friend and DJ partner Kemistry, Storm’s contribution has been immense and critical in helping to build the reputation Metalheadz has today.

She has toured the world over and continues to enthral crowds wherever she goes and has also linked with other like-minded female drum & bass artists to form Feline. Recipient of the best female DJ award 4 years running from 2009 - 2012 at the National Drum and Bass Awards, Storm’s powerful and professional style remains a strong favourite with true Drum and Bass fans around the world.

With a reputation stretching back to the foundations of drum & bass, Storm’s early career was built alongside that of her great friend and DJ partner, Kemistry. Sharing a passion for music and clubbing, they were inspired by the emerging breakbeat sound championed by the likes of Fabio and Grooverider at legendary clubnight Rage. Determined to become involved in this new and exciting scene, they set out on a path to become DJs and bought their first decks together in October 1991. Around this time they met an aspiring young artist by the name of Goldie and began a regular show on London pirate Touchdown FM, with Goldie hosting on the mic for the two upcoming DJs. In 1994, Goldie founded Metalheadz with Kemistry & Storm at the core.



Having spent 4 years in Australia running his club night Rescued , Exposure has returned to the home of Drum and Bass to further pursue his passion for the music he loves.

Still using the much discussed vinyl format, he plays on 3 or more turntables and destroys dance floors with his lightning fast mixing style and varied tune selection across the whole spectrum of Drum and Bass.

Putting many hours into his production in the studio and working with other producers, vocalists and musicians, you can expect to hear some fresh new tracks guaranteed to get you moving!


Lower The Tone: Breaking Boundaries is an event raising awareness & funds for projects dedicated to deaf, blind children and young people across the globe, through the medium & love of electronic music.



Tickets: £6 Advance/Before 12 - £8 After.

I have some krk rokit 5's in great condition but thinking of possibly now i have more money getting some bigger ones. Was wondering if anyone out there has any KRK rokit 8's that they dont use that much but still want a great sounding speaker. If i gave you my rokit 5's and some cash for your rokit 8's then you would still have some quality monitors plus some cash.

Its a long shot but if anyones interested let me know

The McMash Clan are a London based 3 man production / dj team fast building a reputation for destroying the biggest dance floors with their 4-deck live show and high octane productions.

Flux Pavilion signed their current Swing Break EP to Circus Records this summer and the subsequent industry/ public response has been massive.

Released on 21 October, the EP has had heavy DJ/ radio support from the likes of Skrillex, Flux Pavilion, Mistajam, DIllon Francis, Jaguar Skills, Dirtyphonics, Lazy Rich, Excision, Far Too Loud and Borgore. It's had regular play on BBC Radio 1 / 1xtra.

The title track reached number 1 in the Track It Down dubstep/ moombahton charts. The song features a vocal written and sung by Kate Mullins of world renowned swing punk vocal trio The Puppini Sisters.

John B has just released their official remix of his single Connected on his label Beta Recordings. He's been opening / closing his sets with the remix since January, and was the opening tune on his Drum & Bass Arena TV set in February.The remix has already gained dj support from Doctor P, Datsik, Qemists, Cutline and High Rankin.

The Clan's high energy live show sees them hook up Traktor and NI Maschine for a peak time 4-deck assault; cutting, scratching, reediting and triple dropping their way through a multi-layered mash-up of rave-bass lunacy. The strength of their live performances has already seen them smash big stage festival slots at Glastonbury (Arcadia spider), Secret Garden Party and Boomtown Fair.
