Plasticman has cemented himself a place as one of the most popular producer/DJs on the thriving grime scene which has spouted from the old UK Garage scene. His sound actually falls somewhere between dubstep and grime, and can be somewhat difficult to catagorize (always a good thing). He had several tracks on the Rephlex's "Grime" compilation, and has released an armful of 12"s in two short years. He hosts a very popular weekly radio show on London pirate Rinse FM.
Hailing from Brixton, London, Vex'd are two producers/DJs with a taste for the twisted. Their current album on Planet Mu demonstrates a unique take on contemporary electronic music, primarily absorbing elements from the current grime and dubstep scenes but also incorporating influences that stem from jungle, techno, dancehall, industrial and hip hop (among others). This resulting fusion matches the impact of a fierce jungle bassline and the percussive freshness of hip hop as it sounded in the 80s, with the depth of a Basic Channel or Jeff Mills techno record, yet brim with apocalyptic charge.
