Influenced heavily by the likes of Bad Company, Noisia and Ed Rush & Optical, the collective formed back in 2007, bringing together a myriad of styles into one slick package to take the scene by storm with huge releases on a host of prestigious labels including Virus, Vision, Audioporn and most recently SGN:LTD.
Their breakthrough release came in 2009 on DJ Trace’s legendary DSCI4 label while their collaboration with Body & Soul on Ed Rush & Optical’s Virus Recordings took their profile to the next level with support from all corners of the globe. Since then Ludwig, Lukas, Dominik and Nik have travelled the globe as their renowned DJ sets continue to set dance floors alight with their own trademark take on drum & bass.
With remixes of the likes of Noisia under their belt, and support from names such as Friction, Fourward have become a pillar of Neurofunk. Expect nothing but the best from one of the heavyweights of the genre…

Joe Ford is a man on a mission, ready to shake up the world of D&B and beyond with his own unique brand of bass music destined for dance floors across the globe. Hailing from Harrogate UK, Joe leads a new wave of producers currently taking the scene by storm, setting himself apart with an already outrageously accomplished studio skill set and trademark hi-tech drum & bass sound tinged with rock, funk and everything in between.
With a flurry of activity around early releases on Bad Taste, Med School, a Beatport dubstep chart no.1 with the Mission EP on Caliber Music and huge support on UKF, Joe Ford is one of the most exciting talents currently in electronic music, worldwide. Picked up by Friction and K-Tee, Joe now sits as an exclusive Shogun Audio artist alongside one of the most prestigious rosters in the game.
After his stint as support act for Noisia’s I Am Legion tour, his debut Shogun track 'Stride', from the Way Of The Warrior 2 compilation album, marked his arrival in style. Continuing throughout 2014 with his downright dangerous ‘The Moment’ ft Tasha Baxter b/w the effervescent ‘Neon’ release and a remix for one of the biggest USA EDM’ers in the game, Datsik, he sealed the year with ‘Off Centre’ and knocked us all for six. In fact his rework of ‘Hold It Down’ forced Datsik to exclaim “Joe Ford is the future!” in a recent interview…and who are we to argue.
There’s no doubt Joe Ford is coming to conquer, you’ve been warned.
Having burst onto the scene late 2016, the brand new collaborative duo Magnetude have established themselves as a dangerous new force in the game, with their extremely impressive debut release titled 'Hyperdrive' on Lifted Music. The forward-thinking production duo consisting of Rusty K & Jae Overtech set the bar high from the outset with their dynamic approach to Drum & Bass, incorporating a vast array of melodic intricacy, live orchestral and opera elements, that have many critics hailing them as 'the breath of fresh air the scene needs in such a stagnant market'.
Though primarily focussed on Drum & Bass, the project explores diverse territory alongside Russian vocal sensation Julia Marks and apply their production finess exploring the depths of Dubstep, Breaks, Half-Time, Bassline and Grime, which also accompanied by high-octane 4 turntable sets, affirms their position as one of the most exciting artists on the rise destined to make a big impact in the Electronic Music world.
With their recent releases such as “Signals”, “Snatch” and “Entra’cte” they’ve proved their salt and cemented themselves as a serious contender and an upcoming act that you won’t want to take your eyes or ears off of!
