HEADLINE ACT: BBC RADIO 1'S
JEUCE – BIOGRAPHY:
“ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING LIVE ACTS AROUND" (ATM Magazine)
Mixing up the genres with each track like some kind of musical Rubik's cube,
Jeuce throw in a dash of Dubstep, a splash of Electro and lashings of vocal
goodness providing a completely unique sound.
2010 saw them shoot into the limelight after winning Myspace and Vodafone's
“Ones To Watch” competition which picked them as the best Dance act. Since
then the band have gone on to tour with Kissy Sell Out, play this years
Glastonbury Festival and headline at some of the countries best known clubs.
Their debut singles all climbed to the top echelons of genre charts with debut
release Flavour having amassed nearly 400,000 views on Youtube. Their
infamous reworks (official remixes include Ellie Goulding, Crookers, Hadouken
and Ladytron) are also constantly seen topping the Hype Machine charts.
On top of this, Jeuce have consistently received huge club support from some
of the biggest names around. Their singles and remixes have been spun by a
variety of BBC Radio DJs with other airplay coming from XFM, Kiss FM,
Glalaxy, Rinse FM and a host of stations around the world.
With support coming from every direction and a fanbase growing with
everyday, it's obvious that the tastemakers are right in saying that Jeuce's
sound is the one to watch. Their blending of genres from pop vocals to
Dubstep basslines makes Jeuce the perfect crossover between the
underground and the mainstream.
NAMED DANCE ONES TO WATCH BY BBC RADIO 1's KISSY SELL OUT
The Leeds based band (also known as Chris, Josh, Liam and Ryan) was
created by the 21 year old Hertfordshire born students as a way for them to
bridge the gap between their love for dance music and their passion for
A hybrid of sounds and visuals, their live sets are a relentless mix of hardhitting
club anthems and original songs perfectly crafted to suit everywhere
from the clubs they play in to the festivals they’re booked for.
For those clubs that simply couldn't handle the live act, Jeuce DJ sets were
crafted to provide the same energy and originality as the live performances in
a back 2 back set. The DJ duo made up of Jeuce's two synth men, Chris and
Liam, have gone on to spin in some of the countries most prestigious venues
including Ministry Of Sound (London) and Sankeys (Manchester).
Alongside their newly formed collaborative group, Get Hype Collective, Jeuce’s
DJ mix for leading clubbing website Dontstayin.com became the sites all time
most downloaded mix of the week.
BANG BANG ROMEO - BIOGRAPHY:
Bang Bang Romeo were just a sparkle in someone’s alcopop until Keith Langley, ex-drummer from Utah Saints (champions of Techno-Pop and all that is good out of the 90’s) came upon a passionate woman singing her heart out at the Doncaster Music Festival 2009.
Anastasia Walker was just 16 and singing was her emotional outlet. Paired with the talented and already well established Ross Cameron they have penned various tracks already described by DJs worldwide as “Hot , trippy and exciting” (Ricky Crespo) and as a “10 out of 10 track” (Off The Chart Radio). The chemistry was furthered strengthened when enigmatic Sheffield guitarist Ben Trott was introduced.
Recently they have had TV exposure with their video for Little Love aired on 4Music’s ‘Whats Hot’, as well as radio play on BBC Radio Leeds, BBC Radio Sheffield and BBC Radio West Midlands ‘Introducing…’ shows, HallamFM Sheffield, Leeds Indie Radio, Radio Hudd, Radio Afan Cardiff, Trax FM and Sine FM Doncaster. The first E.P. Little Love achieved worldwide DJ recognition and airplay through Media2Radio. Bang Bang Romeo have also had 3 songs featured on BBC 1 TV Soap ‘Doctors’, and played more than 50 venues across the UK including The Limetree Festival and The Doncaster Live Festival, where they received an emphatic response …”this four-piece have the most immense stage presence, giving the audience something to shout about”. They are also due to play a live session on BBC Radio Leeds Raw Talent show on February 10th 2011.
Musically they would like to be in bed with Groove Armada, Lady Ga Ga, Jimi Hendrix, Ladyhawke, Depeche Mode, Friendly Fires, Talking Heads, Eurythmics, Joy Division, Snow Patrol and the Human League, but it would have to be a big bed. Bang Bang Romeo aim to set out their own stall, whether it’s singing unplugged versions of their songs or harnessing the mighty powers of the Mac and Logic and loads of synth sounds, to produce a big and powerful electronic guitar dance mix. Variety is the key, and an eclectic mix of influences helps.
The band’s live set can only be described as electrifying and has drawn rave reviews detailing their “definite Muse feel” with “spiralling guitars and reverberating basslines”. From slow sensitive songs like ‘Chemical’ to edgy loud and fast songs like ‘Just To See You Run’, a live audience will leave with catchy tunes and lyrical hooks imprinted in their memory. Having two vocalists adds another dimension to the bands’ sound, interchanging and harmonizing from one song to the next.

NEMESIS - BIOGRAPHY:
Taking influences from the likes of stadium rock gods such as Queen and Led Zeppelin and fusing their core elements with dance heavyweights such as the Prodigy and the insanely crowd rocking Faithless, Nemesis could be the cross over success that so many dance music lovers have craved... organic live dance music. Cultivated within the context of socio-political challenges of todays new world, Nemesis intends to be the face of todays struggle. Lyrically brash, musically monumental, Nemesis blends the concept of the symphony, the delicacy of poetry, finely balanced with infectious hooks and raw energy straight from the heart of another dimension.
The concept was founded back in early 2010 with a fusion of ideas from up and coming producer extrodinare Lee Adams (Synthetic Man) and new upstart and charismatic frontman DMG. Born out of frustration and a need to challenge the norm's of dance music conventions these two visionaries set out with just one goal in mind, to radically alter the landscape of this vast and exciting genre, which empowers generations all across the globe.
Our course is never set nor is it pre-determined, only in exploring new horizons will Nemesis discover the ever shifting boundaries that blur, which we as musicians seek to disband with, as we draw closer to the key that unlocks the door to future enlightenment. Trailblazers and wizards of the sonic landscape were needed to make this concept unique. Soon the live band was complete, comprising of the one and the only bass junky Gareth Brown, the rhythmic backbone upon the band rely, together with the nucleus of the band, percussionist and creative beat maker ''Shadow'' and heavyweight lead rock masterdon guitarist Josh Dunn. Team assembled, mission understood and now operational, Nemesis is all systems go, so strap yourself in and hold on for the ride of your life, because this team has the green light and they are taking no prisoners in their quest for a higher state of collective conciousness with their raw and hard hitting live performances which are set to scortch across the UK this year
