URBAN NOTION'S 100TH EVENT
Urban Notion celebrates its 100th event in style with three of the worlds most influential drum n bass artists. The night is dedicated to Christchurch's strong and long standing Drum n Bass scene. Big up the Christchurch massive.
ED RUSH AND OPTICAL
For those who don't know Ed Rush and Optical are considered as two of the most innovative DJ's and producers to ever grace the drum and bass scene. They have achieved a status that few others have through their hard work and the sheer quality of their output. Many of their productions have shaped the sound of drum and bass and withstood the tests of time to now be considered timeless classics well beyond the dance floor. As artists they have released four critically acclaimed, genre-defining albums a feat accomplished by very few drum n bass producers. As DJ's their sets have had crowds eating from the palms of their hands with their technical brilliance and futuristic selections. And finally as label owners, Virus Recordings has firmly entrenched itself as one of the scenes premiere labels with the quality of tunes being second to none.
T-Power has been many incarnations throughout the years, and the upcoming release of his 2 part album, 'Music4Life' proves his diversity even more. Straight off the heels of the recent LP 'Diary of a Digital Soundboy' with Shy FX, he's switching it up again with a sonic leap foward!
First coming to prominence working with hardcore techno group Bass Selective, who's 1991 hit "Blow Out Part II" was an influential proto-jungle track. He rose to new acclaim as a solo artist with an experimental blend of lush ambience and often over-the-top rhythmic complexity. His 12-inch 'Mutant Jazz,' as well as the full-length 'The Self-Evident Truth of an Intuitive Mind' are widely considered early masterpieces of jungle. Although subsequent work has strayed from jungle's rhythmic syncopation into breaks and ambient (Atomic Dog, Chocolate Weasel, Agent BLK, Ebony Dubsters), drum and bass remains the core element of much of T Power's music. In recent times it is his work alongside Shy FX that has achieved him the most fame. Their albums 'Set It Off' and 'Diary of a Digital Soundboy' spawned huge dancefloor and crossover hits such as 'Shake Ur Body', 'Feelings' and 'Everyday'. The Digital Soundboy imprint in its short 2 year life has become quickly established as one of the most quality labels out there with a rapidly growing artist roster and many well received releases.
