Stanton Warriors are the breakbeat duo Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley. They are a DJ and producer team of Nu skool breaks, a style of electronic dance music. Originally from the West Country, the pair now play high-profile sets at internationally-renowned clubs such as Fabric and Sankeys Soap in the UK, and travel the globe extensively, with international acclaim in Europe, Canada, America and Australia. Their style is sometimes described as a fusion of electro, breakbeat and 2-step UK garage. Their name was taken from a hexagonal shaped manhole cover, made by Stanton Ironworks, based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire which seemed fitting with their style of underground, cutting edge style of music. Its also a reference to Stanton DJ products. The name was originally conceived from one of the warriors tripping over a "Stanton Warrior" draincover on Tower Bridge.
