FRIDAY JUNE 5TH @ GLO BAR, CHURCHILL WAY, CARDIFF.
CHROME KIDS VS BIG CITY BEATS
Chrome Kids take on Glo Bar's Big City Beats to bring you a massive first party with some of our favourite deejays. Two rooms of Dubstep, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Electro, Baltimore, Fidget and anything else we can throw in to make the walls at Glo shake. Many of these artists will be familiar to regular visitors to the blog...
Currently number one in the Chrome Kids chart with his killer remix of Peter Bjorn & John's 'Nothing to Worry About'. The Hollyrock hotstepper has been tearing up the LA party scene of late and has been getting bookings off the likes of Shepard Fairey and Arnold Schwarzenegger! He has provided remixes for everyone from Bonde Do Role to Justice and even popped up on both Linkin Park and Johnny Cash's remix albums. He recieved the award for best mixtape of the year from URB Magazine & Scion and his latest (simply entitled '4') should give you an idea why.

This Edinburgh crew Seem to have popped up on nearly every mix / show we've done and with good reason. Their wobble heavy tracks are possibly some of the best Dubstep and experimental Hip-hop we've ever heard. Check out their recent mix for the seminal Rob Booth podcast Electronic Explorations.

CHESUS & RODSKI
Radio 1 DJ and Bestival head honcho Rob Da Bank put these fellas as 'ones to watch' in iDJ magazine and not without good reason. They tear up the dancefloor with their mix of Baltimore, Fidget, Electro, Garage and anything inbetween. Their new release will be dropping via On The Brink shortly and this appearance will see them warming up for their residency at Bigger Than Barry's parties in Ibiza alongside Toddla T & Tomb Crew. Check out their recent Radio 1 Mini Mix.

Providing some of the sickest bootlegs on the circuit, that had him at one time riding high in the Juno chart with no less than 3 tunes in one week. His Walk N Skank remix has never failed to make a club go ape shit. Check his latwat mix.
(MU) Mr Curtamos - May Mix
Another name on every Dubstep aficiendo in the city, not olny does he make some killer D&B but his Dubz are on some next level business.

SILENT ILL (Diverse Concepts) myspace.com/divereseconcepts1
The DJ side to Diverse Concepts, an apt name as this man has no barriers with his music, the one thing that ties them together is they're all damn good. We played one of his Hip-hop tracks on Rob Da Bank & Friends and then a Dubstep track on Bethan Elfyn's show, no barriers and no hold barred either.
Not only does he throw some damn fine parties himself with his Tommy B presents events but he knows how to turn a dancefloor into a sweat pit armed only with a big bag of phat Electro and party tracks. Check out his 'Let's Party' mix:

The Dub In The Pub nights are fast gaining a reputation as the best reggae night in the city and always has a great atmosphere, helped in no small part by this here organiser and resident DJ (not to mention graf artist and b-boy - check his website for some great work)
Will be playing something or other to make sure people party lots.
