The Rush Hour records mainstay Hunee is a DJ who continues to grow from strength to strength. Over the past few years he has released a debut album on Rush Hour, as well as an incredible Soichi Terada compilation, with yet another eagerly anticipated compilation set to drop on the same label in the near future. An unrivaled digger, his selections encompass anything from house, disco, afro and techno and beyond. If his set at XOYO alongside Motor City Drum Ensemble late last year is anything to go by, this is going to be something very special.
The undisputed master of looming atmospheric sound, Shackleton first immersed himself in the now too familiar world of bass music through regular visits to the FWD>> clubnights. Founding the Skull Disco label alongside Appleblim, and bringing the world ten distinctive forward-thinking records in the process, Shackleton went on to release his straight-to-classic Fabriclive compilation soon after. Now one of the shining lights of bass-drive, polyrhythmic music, he performs live at XOYO.
