HAVOK

Being an active live and studio drummer for many years has shaped his sense of musicality and groove. Behind the turntables he creates highest quality blend of ghetto funk, breaks and mash-ups that shake every dancefloor. That resulted in many gigs, mostly in silesian area and Cracow, with regular parties in legendary Caryca and Off-Centrum clubs among them. You can't miss this funky bastard when it's coming to your town!

Brought up in Zagłębie Dąbrowskie, where hip hop culture soaked in him. He was a part of crews like: Triad Squad, that transformed into TRD squad and Brzydale Sound.

Was on stage with many polish and foreign artists, such as Gural, Grubson, Junior Stress, Tede, Abradab, Rahim, LUC, Sage, Sobota, Smagalaz, Marika, Jamal, Afromental and many more.

CRUNK’EM

Crunk'eM - a young & fresh selecta straight from the south of Poland (Cieszyn), he's as fierce as the tunes he's droppin' on his gigs. His two main weapons are really heavy and drilly dubstep/drumstep and fidget/bass/punk electro. As for his sets, he's loyal to two ground rules: "If the music is too loud, you're too old" & "There's no place for any other love than the love of bass". He goes absolutely mental when dj'ing - dancin', yellin' and jumpin' with the crowd. His signature is the amount of bass in the club, (IT'S OVER 9000!) and the huuuge drops he's laying at the floor. Check out his sets at soundcloud.com/crunkem !
