Skuff is a rapper and producer from the UK. He is also a co-founder and designer at Supremebeing clothing.
He's often considered an underrated talent in UK Hip Hop, responsible for the underground classic End of the World News LP ("important, essential shit" - DJ Magazine), and with a reputation for igniting live shows and ciphers. He has featured on records with Mr Scruff, Roots Manuva, Task Force, Phi Life Cipher, Dirty Dike & many more.
Skuff delivers rap's trademark bravado with a touch of self depreciation ("I'm a grown damn man with a made-up name"), bringing brutal honesty, deft insight and subtle irony; all sometimes rare in hip hop. Clever wordplay, vocal posturing and straight-up bangers sit comfortably alongside tracks on love, friendship and loss, making the LP personal without being self indulgent. At times energising, often touching, skill full and brutally honest, above all it sounds really good when he raps.
Production on Destroy Everything is handled by Skuff himself, Farma G (Task Force), Mr Constant, Bioviolence, Bee 109 (Delegates of Culture) and Inja. Featured guests are Life (Phi Life Cipher) Dirty Dike (Contact Play) S Class (Delegates of Culture) Inja & Slang Immaculate.
Previous releases by Skuff include 'Headcleaners' 1& 2 with his crew Delegates of Culture, debut solo LP 'End of the World News' and 'The Skuff & Inja Show' LP with Inja. Free releases 'Deep Covers Project' & 'Smash Anything' came out as appetisers in 2011 & 2012, with Skuff's unlikely but poignant cover of Radiohead's 'Creep' being one of the stand out tracks.
He also designs clothes, shoes, graphics, hats with New Era, makes videos, and done his own album cover as well.
Coda was born within earshot of the Canons of Waterloo. It is widely believed it was the rhythmic canon ball fire that led to his later love of dance music.
His formative years were spent on the Rivers of Babyon, where he whaled mostly, while he contemplated Zion.
After much contemplation Coda set off on a world trip where, while in the U.S he chanced upon a man by the name of Robert Johnson, whom he taught to play guitar one evening over a bottle or ten of hard stuff.
Coda's first interest in DNB began in World War 2. From his home in The Outer Hebrides he used to tap out secret codes on his radiator in a syncopated rhythm to aid the French resistance. Charles de Gaulle is believed to have mentioned him in dispatches for his sterling effort!
After the war Coda retired to Stoke and sought refuge in Zen Budhism and the Oboe. He used the Oboe to try and communicate with Wales (the country), but has yet to be successful. Driven by his naive desire to be the first to create water-proof velcro he slowly lost all his savings, estate and finally mental well-being in this unfruitful venture. Coda ended up homeless under a bridge in Crewe. One night under this aforementioned bridge, he was awoken by the sound of rain falling on a metal can. Remembering back to his heroic days during WW2 he realised that this was a sign, and the sign was that Drum'n'bass was THE FUTURE, the answer to ALL things (not the number '42' as had previously been held as the answer due to writings in a 'thumbing it round the galaxy' guide book), and he set about this new endeavour with venomous vigor!
Coda is currently trying to cross breed pigeons with bunnies with the aim of creating a Homing Rabbit. This hybrid would revolutionise carrot farming in ways unfathomable.
Coda's Mother was a mime artist of no note and his Father created the concept of Jam and compote. Not one member of his family has ever owned a dog (or hamster). It is unknown if any dogs have been or are owned by his distant relatives.
A product of the post-jungle Diaspora, T<I has been making, DJing and promoting drum & bass in the east of England for the last 17 years or so. It’s a passion, focus and production style that he’s honed over the years and after a few dubstep releases acclaimed by people like Flux Pavilion and Doctor P, T<I has been releasing on Marky’s label Innerground.
T joined forces with Audio Danger Records in 2015 with an amazing track and video “Run Stitch Error” which really shows the listener what T is all about, expect a lot more from this self made East England legend in 2016. For those not lucky enough to be acquainted with T, he came from the jungle era of drum & bass where the music created a groove on the dance floor and not a mosh pit like at some of today's parties, so T creates a sound that makes you want to get up and dance with percussion or bass-line groove, instead of forcing you to dance with loud screechy bass lines and clashy drums that just make you screw up your face and cover your ears. In short it’s all warm bass-lines, clean drums and a nice pad or two for T. He’s all about the progression and making simple effective rollers that people will still listen to a few years down the line.

MOOSE FUNK SQUAD
Moose are a collective of five emcees: Fourny P, Mnsr Frites, Jester Jacobs, Luca Brazi, & Archetype...
Moose Funk began as a set of collaborations on the EP 'Good for Nothing' by the then Leeds-based producer Organised Mess. Prior to this, Jester Jacobs, Fourny P and Mnsr. Frites had known each other from earlier Organised Mess collaborations while living in Leeds. Mnsr.Frites is also known from his work alongside Luca Brazi, & Archetype in the live band Granvillle Sessions. After doing several live shows with Organised Mess as well as performing in a legendary cypher on Rhyme Pad Radio (live on Cambridge's 105 FM at the tail end of 2010), they collectively decided to form a new supa crew, making tracks together under the name 'Moose Funk Squad'.
Moose Funk have been playing shows for over 2 years now, performing in various cities and at festivals around the UK. Despite writing and recording tracks together over this period they have yet to put out a full-length release, until now! This project has all been put together by P739 with the help of his ‘Note Ghosts’ partner Disent, and given the finishing touch by the world famous DJ Sugai, dropping cuts and turning the compilation of tracks into a mixtape.
P739- Producer – Has been producing and working with Fourny P for over 10 years now. He’s also had a recent project released with Makzwel Skot named 'What's Needed'…. Key Skills: Experienced bong hitter, international man of mystery & MPC junky.
DJ Sugai – World renound DJ, original member of SMB, been djing since the beginning of time. Main interests include taco wars, vegging out and generally thinking he is far superior to the mere mortal.
Fourny P – One of the original SMB rhymers from way back. Mexicans bow down to his burrito mix, which is better than any one elses. Fourn was heavily involved in the Organised Mess projects, 'Reasonable Doubt' and 'Good for Nothing'.
Jester Jacobs – Professional rappist/comedian/millionaire who lives in the Hamptons. Jester made his millions through the sale of ham products on the black market. Has released 2 solo projects 'More of the Sane' & his debut album 'Mental Disorder', entirely produced by Organised Mess….. and has 2 new projects about to be released… Was also heavily involved in the Organised Mess projects 'Reasonable Doubt'.and 'Good for Nothing'.
Mnsr. Frites – International businessman, well known for instigating inhumane activities over the world. Also a member of lthe ive band Granville Sessions, and features heavily on the Organised Mess EP 'Good for Nothing'.
Luca Brazi – Nice guy, but needs to be told to behave every now and again. You may find him sipping a Guiness in a pub near you! Also a member of Granville Sessions and is about to drop his self-produced solo album on his label Broke Records.
Archetype – Untrustworthy, dangerous dog man who will happily destroy and takeover your yard in the name of a culinary video. Member of Granville Sessions, and has also released a solo EP on Broke Records, entirely produced by Luca Brazi.
28 years old, ginger-bearded and an Austrian guy you should definitely keep on your radar, when it comes down to looking for an all-round talent in the Drum and Bass scene: the man to hit up is DJ Dorian.
With his early beginnings in producing, he felt that his releases should be put in the limelight. That’s when his career as a DJ started and his tunes began to thrill the masses. Backed by the instant support of the crowd, he jumped at the chance and fittingly released a Jump up EP as his Debut in 2014: Whore Island EP on Switch! Recordings.
Once he had the ball rolling, one release followed another and several labels scrambled to get a piece of him: His tunes came out on New Playaz, Smokescreen Records, Hangar Records, Animated Records, Audio Danger Records, Hoover Bass Recordings, Innerground Records, Gun Audio, and in:deep. As he had built up a reputation, his tracks got supported by well-established names of the DnB scene, like DJ Hype, S.P.Y, DJ Bailey, Rene LaVice, Nicky Blackmarket, Tyke, Zen, Jaydan, Rawtee, and many more.
He also currently sets the popular event series “Pusztabeats“ on fire, as he agreed to hold his first position as Resident DJ.
Always a welcomed face at clubs local or abroad, he himself states that he doesn’t want to nail himself down to specific subgenres, which his diverse supporters are pleased with, is plainly audible when it comes down to the producer’s œuvre. Certainly an easygoing fellow with a knack for homemade perfectionism, we will surely hear about him in the years to come.

Having hosted for legends like Andy C, Hazard, Subzero, Serial Killaz and many more Jimmy's goals are now focused on the label, writing more lyrics and putting out his first Solo EP.
