INPUT | Skream, MK, Oneman, Curses, Route 94

Yup. Ready or not, here he comes. Genre defining, genre disowning, CDJ giving away, BBC radio show hosting, remixer of renown, and all around master of his domain. We are very excited to announce that Skream aka Oliver Jones is coming to Lights Down Low and we know only to expect the unexpected. He's a wild man, known for his 3 hour disco, house, and techno sets on the hugely famous Skreamizm tour as well being the man who has remixed Chromeo, Katy B, Kelis, Bat For Lashes and La Roux. He blew minds in Austin this year by getting a bit nuts at the end of his Boiler Room set and tried to give away the CDJS to a very excited and bewildered audience.

Mastering engineer at Optimal Media GmbH, formerly known as Optimal Media Production.

Note: The company does not release the full name of the engineer.

There are DJs that are heavily tied to styles, people who go on to become figures
synonymous with a certain sound or a particular approach to mixing; and then there
are DJ’s DJs – a different breed of people who manage to make the whole process
of blending records from disparate genres look (and sound) seamless. Often, it’s
not just about beat matching perfectly, it’s as much about capturing a mood and
evolving it through your record selections as it is locking on to a consistent rhythm
and that’s something that Streatham bred DJ, Steve Bishop has proven himself to be
mightily adept at over the years and his now ample fan base reflects that talent. 

As much as his sets under the Oneman moniker may have started turning heads
by melding old school UK garage with DMZ style dubstep, he’s proven through his
DJ sets and his regular presence on London institution Rinse FM that he can do so
much more than just marry classics with current beats. Whether through his famed
hip hop & R&B sets for The Boiler Room, the now legendary back to back sets with
Jackmaster or opening for dance titans such as SBTRKT and Major Lazer, Oneman
has that rare ability to destroy any party and leave you in no doubt who it was
you’ve been listening to.
With two varied and acclaimed mix CDs, FABRICLIVE 64 and Rinse 15, to his
name already, he’s got plans to release a third mixtape in the New Year and that,
combined with his European and US tours that are already in the offing before the
end of the first quarter, makes it plain to see that 2013 will be further outlining
Oneman’s tireless passion and work ethic.


Curses was originally an Institubes (RIP) artist back in 2009 and to most had disappeared.

However, at 6am, November 19th 2012 at an afterparty in New York, Curses came back.

“I was going to a lot of after-hours parties in Brooklyn and loved it. It inspired me to go to the studio and suddenly I had a whole bunch of new songs. Next thing I was djing. It was at that point when I knew Curses was coming back.”

And Curses has hit a nerve with the first single SO GOOD.

He sent the track to a few friends and suddenly the song is being played on Radio 1. Seven times in two weeks. On top of that Heidi asked for a DJ mix for Radio 1 as well as long-time friend Skream.

Meanwhile back in the US, Tensnake was about to begin his first ever full North American tour with Curses in support. A strong friendship was formed and pushed Curses to full-time.

Curses has a slew of massive singles coming out in 2013 and 2014 on various labels.
