Nu:Tone (Hospital Records UK)
Dan Gresham aka Nu:Tone came bursting onto the scene in 2001 with his debut vinyl release on John's Beta imprint - 'Grand Central' / 'The Boss'. Since signing to Hospital in 2003 has come through the ranks to become one of the most highly respected producers in the scene, with everyone from LTJ Bukem to Dillinja busting his tunes. Nu:Tone remixes are always guaranteed to please - whether it's the retro soul of his Spread Love anthem or the junglist wobble of his "Strictly Social" re-rub.
His debut album Brave Nu World dropped in 2005 with all of the Drum + Bass' hierarchy supporting it. DJs Norman Jay M.B.E and Tom Middleton also made Nu:Tone a favourite of their eclectic sets. Off the back of this success Nu:Tone has taken his DJ-ing all over the world, spreading Hospital love from the USA to Asia to Australia.
His stunning album Back Of Beyond dropped in June 2007 with critics hailing it "The perfect marriage of accelerated junglist funk and cooled-out 70s melody" (DJ Mag). Cuts from the album such as , Beliefs (with Pat Fulgoni) and System (featuring
Natalie Williams) saw particular success on UK dancefloors.
As the lynchpin of the Future Sound Of Cambridge, Dan was instrumental in getting Logistics, Commix and of course himself into the studio to produce the devastating full length Future Sound Of Cambridge 3 in 2008. In the same year, Nu:Tone submitted his ’Medical History’ in LP format. The album featured such hits as ‘Kitch ‘N’ Synch’, ‘Is It Alive’ and ‘Mrs Jones’ and the first digital appearance of ’07 hit ‘Missing Link VIP’.
Early in 2010, Dan’s anthemic 12” release ‘Hyper Hyper/Set Me Free’ set the world on fire, championed by Sub Focus and featured on the ‘Hospitality D+B 2010’. Throughout the rest of the year, Nu:Tone has also been big on the remix duties for New Zealand Shapeshifter’s ‘Long White Cloud’, Dekata Project ‘At Least We Can Dance’ and Unicorn Kid – ‘Wild Fire’. Alongside the collaborative project with his brother Logistics (Nu:Logic).
2011 sees the release of Dan's 3rd album on Hospital. The highly anticipated album Words + Pictures’ is Dan's most ambitious project yet. See for yourself on http://nutone.org/
MACHETE ignited his musical journey back in 1992 as DJ Rob G,
spinning Hip-Hop at Hollywood afterhours events such as No-Doz, What?, and Caffiend.
The Los Angeles underground rave culture was in it's infancy and Rob was inspired by the techno-breakbeat music emerging out of England via vinyl records played by DJs Raw, Curious, and Oscar da Grouch.
These frantic bass-heavy beats that evolved from old-school breaks layered with HipHop and Reggae samples were intriguing and propelled him in a new direction.
Rob, encouraged by his peers, changed his professional name to Machete in 1994...
a title meant to evoke the nature of his mixing and cutting skills in relation to this new Jungle music.
As DJ Machete, Rob helped put Junglist Platoonon the map with gigs at nearly every Jungle party in the Greater Los Angeles area.
A brief residency with Los Angeles mega-promoter Insomniac, plus a noted mention in URB Magazine's NEXT 100 Issue (1998) garnered much attention. Rob was then featured on various dates of the infamous KungFu-Knowledge Tour of 1999, placing Machete alongside many of the world's best including DJ Craze, Mampi Swift, and the legendary Rob Playford.
Machete is well-traveled and has showcased his skills in Costa Rica, Hawaii, Vancouver BC, and in numerous cities and states across the continental US including New York, Philadelphia, Virginia, Massachusetts, Washington DC, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, Texas, Minnesota, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and many more. Machete also made history as one of the very first Jungle/Drum and Bass DJs flown to perform in Anchorage, Alaska.
In March of 1999 the Junglist Platoon began hosting a weekly event called RESPECT
with Machete in charge of talent bookings, promotions, as well as being a resident DJ.
In March of 2000, Machete organized a RESPECT one-off at the Winter Music Conference in Miami which successfully placed the RESPECT brand at the forefront of Los Angeles Drum and Bass.
After 11+ years, RESPECT is the longest running Jungle/Drum and Bass weekly in Los Angeles in addition to being one of the most successful clubs in the United States. RESPECT is globally known for bringing the best international and stateside talent and continues to do so after settling into it's fifth and most current venue, The Dragonfly in Hollywood.
In 2012 Machete is busier than ever, occasionally opening for mainstream Hip-Hop acts at House of Blues - Sunset Strip combined with DJ residencies at RESPECT, spinning DnB and Dubstep at one-off events, pushing his promotions company Machete-Media, hosting a weekly RESPECT DnB RADIO program,
and engaging production projects proving his versatility as an artist.
DJ Machete's longevity speaks for his talents, dedication, and determination which has surely solidified his place as a force in the world music scene.
