Originally part of a small crop of American artists inspired by dubstep, garage, jungle and other 'nuum sounds, Kastle has been transitioned through multiple aesthetic iterations since he burst into the popular consciousness 6+ years ago, surviving the brostop bubble and bust and fostering a thriving touring career in the years since. Across releases for Silverback, Seclusiasis and his own Symbols label, the Los Angeles-resident has filtered hip hop and R&B through the aforementioned UK sounds, developing a sound rife with pop consciousness and a keen sense of melody, all while retaining a strong devotion to under-the-radar sounds. And while his past releases may be deemed too populist by some, it's clear that he's a student of dance music culture, an unfortunate rarity among larger acts in the United States.

Plastician

Chris Reed, also known as Plastician, is a grime and dubstep DJ and producer from Thornton Heath in the London borough of Croydon. Plastician has played a role in the popularity of the genre thanks to his participation in the Rephlex Grime compilations, his primetime pirate radio shows and his recent BBC Radio 1 Residency slot. In addition to his worldwide DJ schedule, Plastician has released records on labels such as Rephlex Records, Soulja, ROAD, Slimzos, A.R.M.Y. and Southside Dubstars. His musical style connects east London grime to the south London dubstep scenes. Plastician also runs his own label; Terrorythm Recordings.

Introducing Swindle, a multi-talented musician and producer, hailing from South London who took a keen interest in music at a young age, learning to play the piano aged 8 and recording his own music by 13. Taking influence from Jazz, Reggae and Soul artists (including Miles Davis, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder), Swindle focused his energies on making predominantly Grime and Hip Hop beats whilst attending college.

From 2007-2009 Swindle produced for the who's who of the UK underground, names like Chipmunk, Professor Green, Asher D, Roll Deep and Roses Gabor, while making steps to break out as a producer fronting his own music after long being in the shadow of the massive artists he was working with. Linking up with Elijah & Skilliam as they started the Butterz label proved to be the turning point in 2010, as they pushed him to finally make the leap into the limelight.

The underground smash 'Airmiles' (released by Planet Mu) made a big impact on the club scene and pushed him to the forefront as a DJ at the same time. Playing sets that consist mainly of his own music he always leaves an individual stamp on ravers with his brand of jazzy Grime, Dubstep and UK Funky. In between that, expect exclusive sounds from his Butterz label mates such as Terror Danjah & Royal-T as well collaborations with heavy hitters Roska and Silkie. Swindle's biggest tracks to date 'Mood Swings' (the video for which was an internet hit) released on Butterz, 'Ignition' Featuring Newham General Footsie and 'Do The Jazz' released on Deep Medi has solidified him as one of the great young prospects to shape the future of underground music in the UK.
