** GREAZUS **
GREAZUS is the culmination of nearly 2 combined decades of experience producing, DJing, running their label, Aufect and promoting underground shows in Vancouver. This is the shared vision of two of the city’s most renowned and prolific bass music ambassadors – HxdB & Patrik Cure.
Individually, both are accomplished music producers, having releases on some of the most respected labels in the scene like Tectonic, B.YRSLF, Brownswood, Mindset and countless others. Their solo music having been supported by legends like Gilles Peterson, Ben UFO, Machinedrum and B Traits, and having several plays on BBC Radio1, Rinse FM & NTS.
Together they have combined their shared experiences and passion for music, to create a uniquely infectious sound, paying homage to their Jungle, Drum & Bass and Hip Hop roots, while fusing elements of Juke, Footwork, Grime and House. The result in both their productions and performances has been blowing up dance floors and opening eyes to their hybrid, genre-melding sounds. Both having performed frequently across North America and at legendary festivals like Shambhala and Bass Coast Project, and globally at Outlook Festival. Despite this project being in its relative infancy, the two have already received support from international heavyweights like Noisia, Rockwell, Youngsta, dBridge, London Elektricity, J:Kenzo, Sam Binga, Om Unit, Ivy Lab, and Fixate. On the West Coast, their music has gained support from major players like Mat The Alien, The Librarian, Bleep Bloop, Max Ulis, Stylust Beats, Yan Zombie & Taal Mala to name but a handful.
They have collaborated and remixed well-established artists like Sam Binga, Distal, Doctor Jeep, Sinistarr, Klax, BSN Posse, Abstrakt Sonance, J Nomad, and with their feverish studio ethics, have many new and exciting sounds yet to unleash. Their anthemic re-interpretation of John B’s classic “Up All Night”, won them a legion of new fans, hungry for more of their fun, old-meets-new swagger. With music forthcoming and released on legendary labels, Hospital Records & Critical Music in addition to a full EP on Diffrent Music and more music on Vandal, GREAZUS is ready to blow up your dance floor.
** SINISTARR **
Dj/Producer for 10 years, born and raised in Detroit. I’ve written mainly drum & bass for various labels such as Goldie’s Metalheadz imprint, Hospital, Renegade Hardware and many other labels that do strictly drum& bass, but have recently branched out to writing many different tempos for various labels like SMOG, Loose Squares and Pinch’s Tectonic.
In late 2012 I joined the Urban Tribe project with Stingray, and other contributors to this project are Moodymann, Carl Craig, and Anthony “Shake” Shakir.
All in all, I’m tapping into new sounds as much as I can…!
