This event is 21 and over
The name ..High Contrast.. needs no introduction anymore; though when a young Lincoln Barrett signed on the dotted line back in 2000 he was a complete unknown. Signed on the strength of his mini-disc demos, the Welsh wonder has smashed his way through the d+b scene in no time at all. .... His debut longplayer ....True Colours.... was released on Hospital to massive critical acclaim in June 2002, paving the way for a move onto the international DJ circuit and helping him become remixer of choice for so many labels inside and outside of the drum+bass community. It was the club sessions and mixing skills that dominated the year since ....True Colours.... - with Lincoln making a name for himself as one of the hottest D&B DJs around. .... In autumn 2004 we dropped the massive ....High Society.... LP; featuring the anthemic singles ....Twilights Last Gleaming.... and ....Racing Green..... The album has already become the stuff of legend, with Knowledge Magazine voting it into there top 3 jungle albums of the last 10 years. .... More recently after reaching Drum & Bass superstardom he has releaed mix albums for Fabric and Mixmag and seen his White Stripes remix all over Radio 1. Missy Elliot and Blaze have also come knocking for a Contrast remix and the Worlds dance floors have been blown apart by that Gold Digger booty. .... 2007 saw the High Contrast success story continue, with the gargantuan single ....If We Ever.... all over Radio One, followed by arguably his finest album yet ....Tough Guys Don't Dance...... Rounding the year off with yet another huge remix - this time of Axwell's Ibizan anthem "I Found You", and his DJing skill saw him scoop BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix of the year, no less. .... Riding high on the wave of success following Tough Guys, it was straight into 2008 with huge remixes of Utah Saint's "Something Good", Adele's "Hometown Glory" and Eric Prydz's monster hit "Pjanoo". .... With High Contrast sitting firmly at dance music's top table, 2009 sees him rocking a superclub near you. Headlining ....Hospitality.... at London's huge "Matter" nightclub and coming through with more daring and genius drum and bass. Expect the unexpected as High Contrast looks to keep things fresh in 2012. Keep it Locked!
NYC native, Raw Q (aka Dj Beau) has been a dedicated fixture in the North American Drum & Bass movement since 1995. From his roots as one of the founders of Camouflage, an original Jungle Sky, NASA, and Konkrete Jungle O.G., to his recent status as one of Dj Zinc's 'Bingo All-Stars', and current member of the Driven AM family, Intrigue Music crew and resident dj at NYC's premiere dnb events Direct Drive and Natural Selection.
Over the years Beau's DJ skills and impeccable selection has earned him gigs at the world's top Drum & Bass events across the continental US, Toronto, San Juan Puerto Rico, and Bogota Colombia where he's opened for high profile artists such as Fabio and Grooverider, Planet of the Drums, Dj Marky, Marcus Intalex, Calibre, Klute, A.I. and has shared the bill with the likes of LTJ Bukem, Roni Size, Goldie, Shy-Fx, Bad Company and Dj Craze.
On the production tip, Beau first ventured into the studio back in 95' and teamed up with Dj Ani (NASA, Deee-Lite), where the duo created tunes for Dj Soulslinger's 'Jungle Sky' imprint (the first US Drum & Bass label).
