For DATSIK, FIREPOWER stands out as an extension of his revered and applauded musical persona. "I come from the dark, hip hop-influenced side of dubstep, and I'm trying to create a haven for that style," he explains. "There are all of these incredible young producers on the rise. I want to elevate them and promote them. If I'm playing a track in my set, I'm likely to sign it and release it. Those are my guidelines, and FIREPOWER's dance floor ammunition is my contribution to the EDM world." DATSIK's specialty is wrecking the dance floor. Barely out of high school, the Canadian artist and producer inked a deal with Excision's Rottun Recordings. He released a series of successful singles and EPs and rose to prominence as a leader of the underground dubstep scene in North America. After collaborating with the legendary Korn on The Path of Totality, he toured the U.S. with the group. Then, 2012 saw him release his proper full-length debut, Vitamin D, via Dim Mak Records and featuring the epic single "Evilution" [Featuring Jonathan Davis of Korn & Infected Mushroom]. However, founding a label has always been part of his plan. FIREPOWER began formally contributing to that landscape with the release of AFK & Hizzleguy's 10-song EP, Full Clip. Unveiled in February 2012 on iTunes and Beatport, the collection solidified FIREPOWER as an explosive force to be reckoned with. Shortly after, the second signing Getter dropped the razor sharp Psycho EP. Other acts that make up the roster include Barron, Rekoil, Terravita, The Frim and DATSIK himself. With tours planned under the label banner and more music on the horizon, they're well on their way to domination. Either duck and cover or storm the gates with them.

FuntCase aka James Hazell is a producer and DJ from Bournemouth, UK. He is known for his raw and dirty sound, forging the way with his controversial 'filthy' style of dubstep. "FuntCase produces sensory overload dubstep that wobbles, womps and machine guns through your body, making you dance whether you want to or not." www.brightonsource.co.uk
James first expressed his love of music through jamming with his schoolmates, taking his energetic and aggressive drumming style from death metal as well as being heavily influenced by happy hardcore and jungle, growing up to a background of Helter Skelter and Dreamscape mixtapes.
Along came Music 2000 and James discovered the world of electronic sound, before an introduction to Reason opened up his eyes to a whole new world of music production beyond pre-made loops.
After hearing 'Bandwagon Blues' by Twisted Individual, James fell in love with the drum and bass sound and began to focus his talents on producing. Sharing his tracks with D&B radio stations led to the first recognition of his foot-thumping talents, and a first digital release 'Unleash' on Hammer Records followed in 2007, under the alias DJ Dose. He started working with Sensa and Jayline, with several more releases following, and James began to DJ to promote his own sounds.
In 2009 James began to dabble with producing dubstep, giving his tunes a big energy by incorporating the drum and bass layering technique into his dubstep sound. His first track 'Make Our Day' was quickly signed to 4:20 Records. And so began the raw sound that is 'FuntCase'.
It wasn't long before FuntCase began trading tracks with Doctor P, and an offer soon followed to bring James into the Circus Records camp with the release of his famed track 'So Vexed', with 'Mattress Punch' on the flip, in 2010.
Releases rapidly followed including 'Gorilla Flex VIP' on GetDarker's Compilation 'Pure Dubstep', 'Fuuuuk!' on Dubsaw Recordings, and remixes for Ali Love and Marco Del Horno, the latter featuring on the Ministry of Sound's compilation CD 'The Sound Of Dubstep 2'.
With support from some of the biggest artists in the scene, the future looks bright for FuntCase. Highly sought after for his high energy sound DJ sets, and as a recognised member of the Circus Records crew, FuntCase now travels the globe promoting the dark side of dubstep, working hard, playing hard, travelling hard - doing his thing!
As a vanguard of forward thinking bass music, Antiserum continuously defines the sound of today. Spawned in a laboratory of collaborations with heavy hitters such as LA dubplate warrior 12th Planet, he has found himself continuously at the forefront of bass music's list key players. His releases on Smog Records and Caspa's Dub Police label have established him as a mainstay of sub-heavy music.
Antiserum's ability to inoculate should come as no surprise. His production "Brick Squad Anthem," a collaboration with Atlanta-based music producer Mayhem, has received huge support from the bass community including Skrillex, Diplo, Datsik, and Flux Pavillion. His collaboration with 12th Planet on the Smog City Compilation, "Bass Salt" was featured on Rolling Stone and UKF and his remix of Helicopter Showdown's "Can You Feel Me" reached #2 on the beatport dubstep charts.
Antiserums BBC Radio 1xtra mix is a brief glance into the dynamic nature of his performance, during which he defies expectations of the listener and delivers an injection of what can only be described as the "Antiserum." Upcoming collaborations with 12th Planet, Mayhem, Brillz, and a release on Datsik's Firepower label will likely dub him the patron saint of bass in 2013.
Chart topping, dance floor rocking, and taste making come naturally to Atlanta based producer, DJ, label executive and promoter Mayhem. With over 15 years in the studio and 13 years on the decks, he has garnered the attention of the heavyweights in every genre of his focus. Rooted heavily in Drum & Bass music, and with a discerning ear, 28 year old Mayhem found himself making big moves from an early age. From releasing records for Andy C, TeeBee, Dieselboy, Noisia, and Black Sun Empire to DJing across the world for massive crowds in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and beyond; he has warranted a reputation for diversity and quality control. Collaborating with and developing artists such as Noisia, Le Castle Vania, Phace, Evol Intent, Sinthetix, Gein and Gridlok amongst many others, his production soared to new heights with "Exodus (featuring the legendary KRS-1)", "Moonway Renegade", and "Choke" with Noisia. Boundless inspiration pushed Mayhem to pursue Dubstep in it's formidable years, immediately signing with the reputable Subway Records, as well as Indie/Electro under the moniker Rrrump. As of late his focus has been brought back to home on the forefront a movement combining southern Rap music with Dubstep collaborating with long time friend Heroes + Villains. His club nights Transit, Fuck Yesss, Heavy, Tambor Y Bajo, Atlanta Dubstep and Haute Mess have helped reshape Atlanta's nightlife. No matter the genre, you are guaranteed a diverse set with attention to detail and a healthy respect for dynamics and balance. This is Mayhem.
