Virus Syndicate are DJ/producer MRK1 and MCs JSD, Goldfinger & Nika D. Hailing from Manchester, their raw urban bass heavy sound leans to many genres, with hard edged beats and lyrical intelligence the Virus are fast gaining tips to become the next major UK break through act.
MRK1 (Formerly Mark One) is one of the leading heads in the ever evolving dubstep scene and combined with his heavy electro, grime, hip hop and jungle influence his sound provides a super-sonic platform for the lyrically astounding mc’s. From satire to irony, humour to sincere… Virus Syndicate offer an interesting perspective on life and a much needed breath of fresh air for the urban/dance crossover world.
After the success of their debut album “The Work Related Illness” Virus Return with a fresh batch of hybrid bass bombs, all unique in sound and even more infectious than before. Tracks such as “Conspiracy” dig deep and are a true sign of the times touching upon illegal wars, politics, poverty and the hierarchical system...disputes aside Virus still deliver their wonderfully crafted stories such as “Kane and Able” detailing a tragic sibling rivalry with fatal consequences and the “Balance”, a tail of unexpected pregnancy amongst love struck, care free teenager’s.. then there’s the up front testosterone fuelled tracks such as “Be like us” and the ever present misogynistic tracks such as “Bashy” and “Dipping”, just a few of the many humorous Manchester colloquialisms used by Virus.
Collaborations and remixes are brewing with USA's Yo Majesty, Freq Nasty, Switch, Various Productions, Foreign Beggars, Nextmen, Jahcoozi, DJ Baku (JPN). With over 60 European dates under their belt and receiving support from the likes of Liam Howlett, Rob Da Bank, Ross Allen, Mary Anne Hobbs, Tim Westwood (to name a few!) the future looks bright for Virus Syndicate…get ready to be infected.
TYKE ( Grid Recordings )
After his first release in 2008 Tyke started up his own label ‘Dead Or Alive Music’ releasing via there throughout 2009 as well as the Birmingham based label ‘Muzik Hertz’ and ‘Dj Kane’s ‘Sonic Art’.
After a release via ‘Ram Records’ on ‘Andy C’s ‘Nightlife 5’ He was recognised as one of the brightest talents for the future and approached by ‘Twisted Individual’s ‘Grid Recordings’ in 2010, where he remains signed
Once signed for ‘Grid’ he released his debut Solo Ep ‘The Music Makers’, which really bounced him into the limelight and got all the heads talking, receiving several ‘BBC Radio 1’ plays and having several licensing deals thrown his way. As well as having to repress due to high record sales, people began to speak of his unique warm distorted sound and his approach to production, whereby he only uses a computer for sequencing and the rest is done ‘Outboard’. This Ep after hitting number four in the ‘BBC’s ‘Drum & Bass Chart’ is one that still remains
in all the big DJ’s artillery.
After the Ep the hype continued, the bookings came pouring in and DJ’s eagerly awaited his next product – the massive ‘Scorpio/Immortal Formula’ dropped on to the shelves after a long promo stage, this time capturing the attention of everybody Drum & Bass aswell as ‘BBC’s ‘Annie Mac’ & ‘Annie Knightingale’ and again forcing the label to go to repress.
With remix work being turned down since February 2011 so he can finish his debut LP ‘Nightmares’ (released Nov/Dec 2011), the Drum And Bass community hold their breath. He will begin the start of his album promo at the end of September 2011 where he will appear on ‘Crissy Criss’s ‘BBC 1xtra’ show and then in November 2011 where he will be a special guest on Drum & Bass legends ‘Fabio’ & ‘Grooverider’s ‘BBC Radio 1’ show.
COMPA ( Boka Records, WR/WX, Just Skank )
"Since his debut-appearance on GetDarker TV, March 2011, Followed by a recent guest-show on Rinse Fm, airplay on BBC Radio 1xtra and his "Dem A Talk" record selling out worldwide five days after official release, Compa has been blowing people away with his perpetually deep, dark and heavy Dubstep sound.
Already gaining residency at the ‘Just Skank‘ nights in Manchester (not forgetting residencies with Bass Camp, Archive and on top of running his own club night and vinyl-only record label, WR/WX) he has played next to a countless number of Dubstep icons - Kromestar, Silkie, Quest, Mala, Coki, Cyrus, Tunnidge, Darkside, J:Kenzo, Lx-One, Pinch, Goth-Trad, Breakage, Benton, Joe Nice, Synkro, Vivek, Truth, Kryptic Minds, Biome, Commodo, Oneman, Chef, The Others, Cluekid and many others...
Compa’s unrivalled rise in the ranks stands tall and is backed with an infinite arsenal of dubplates. This is a man who truly embodies the vinyl culture, sacrificing his appetite, by funding the custom pressing of his acetates. The time and dedication that this man puts into his productions, DJing and appearances is truly inspiring. On top of his already MASSIVE plate, Compa makes time to host his radio show every Wednesday 2-4pm on Sub.fm.
Listening to Compa’s music will take your mind through a history lesson on Dubstep as his sounds can be categorized with those of Mala, Loefah, and even early Skream. The greatest thing about his sounds is that they are as fresh and new as they are classic and timeless. Rather than just imitate the sounds of Dubsteps foundation, Compa has been able to build upon those foundations with the innovative and unique attributes in his music."
