Charissa Saverio, also known as DJ Rap, has for the last eight
years been the undisputed queen of the hardcore and
drum'n'bass turntables. She's become a prime mover, the prime
female mover in fact, on the hardcore, jungle and drum'n'bass
scenes that have shaped the last ten years of her and countless
other lives. As a producer, she's consistently rolled out the tracks
that have made the rave scene rock: from 1990's Ambience -
The Adored to 1993's Spiritual Aura and 1996's Roughest
Gunark. As a DJ: her intuitive orchestrations between
incendiary, impacting jump-up percussion and the sheerest,
sensual, ambient effervescence have made her intensely female
sets penetrate deep into the hearts of the nations' clubbers and
ravers. And that's just the beginning. For DJ Rap is about to
move far beyond the realm of drum'n'bass. This extraordinary
girl, with her extraordinary story is about to release an album
that way surpasses the incredible acheivements she's already
amde. DJ Rap is about to unveil a surprising and inspiring long
player of songs, live instrumentation, breakbeats, guitar band
eloquence, trance, ambience and her own vocals, that's gonna
set the world on fire.
DJ Rap is about to come into her own.
Like I said before, forget Girl Power. You ain't seen nothing yet.

Andy Rementer (aka:Lysergic) is an original drum and bass producer,

original drum and bass is extremely original and hard hitting.

Basement Jaxx History
Basement Jaxx's new single "Red Alert" might be their first
single for Astralwerks/XL Recordings, but Felix Buxton and
Simon Ratcliffe have been honing their unique brand of punk
garage? for more than five years.
Basement Jaxx first started as an ideal, as an attempt to get
back to the roots of house, to the original jack-your-body all
night long abandon of the Chicago loft parties. Even before
they released their first EP in 1994, Felix and Simon had
thrown the first illegal Basement Jaxx parties in a dodgy
Mexican restaurant in pre-gentrified Brixton, London. The
dubious attentions both of the police and the local crack
dealers soon put a stop to that, but by then the pair were
ensconced in Simon's (then literally) bedroom studio,
cooking up a mix of New York house with London club
That was four years ago. When they started out, it might have
been out of a desire to emulate their Stateside heroes, but
Felix and Simon have long since left any comparisons
behind. Basement Jaxx aren't boasting but merely restating
the facts when they admit that now, there are no boundaries
to break but their own. Their contemporary Thomas
Bangalter, one of the driving forces behind both Daft Punk
and Stardust, said recently that Basement Jaxx was the only
new music he could be bothered to listen to.
Most of the new breed of jet setting club and rave DJs come from such cities as New York, London and
Chicago, but Doc Martin hails from Los Angeles re-presenting the West Coast worldwide.
Doc Martin began his mission on the decks back in the summer of 1986. His focus on house music from the
land of funk and disco, was triggered while playing the club and warehouse scene in San Francisco. As one
of the major players in laying the foundations of a strong West Coast dance scene, Doc has always been a
master of mixing the crowd with the music. Neatly avoiding pigeonholing, while embracing a myriad of
different styles, his set creates a warm unique vibe of empathy on the dance floor. Doc’s legendary 8 hour
sets at Flammable Liquid, Sunday Love, to the most underground lofts, and warehouse parties know no
colors, age or sexual orientation. Not only does he regularly devastate dance floors in prestigious clubs like
New York’s Twilo and Liverpool’s Cream, to the smallest loft parties, but he can also send a crowd of ravers into a euphoric
groove. That’s rare these days in a scene where there are sizable walls between the two ends of the dance music spectrum.
DJ/PRODUCER KAZIMIR learned his ropes from Prince Paul and the RZA
while interning at the Firehouse Recording studio in Manhattan. During his
study at New York University's film school he released his first single DEAR
PRUDENCE (Smile Recordings 10") . The song created a buzz in the
underground and got the attention of the mainstream when interviewed by
MTV News. Kazimir then put film school on hold to engineer an album
project for Atlantic Records. (Spy - Music to Mauzner By) The rest of his
time went to DJ'ing at parties such as Jungle Nation & Nite Strike, and
co-hosting Velocity, a weekly drum and bass show on Pseudo.com with DJ
Dara and Sean Shooter.
As soon as he finished with Spy, he returned to the jungle to produce BURN,
a drum n' bass dance floor smasher which DJ AK1200 licensed for Lock &
Roll, a CD compilation released on Moonshine Music. He then joined vocalist
Carol C. to form Sisé, a multilingual electronica band which recently signed
to David Byrne's label, Luaka Bop. However, after a few live shows with the
band, Kazimir realized that the studio, and not the stage, was his true home.
Dimitri Kneppers, world reknown DJ, Producer, Remixer started his musical career in 1983 at the
age of 16, mixing funk and hip-hop tracks for the Dutch radio station ABC. Two years later his
involvement with Dutch's famous hip-hop band "Freakaristic" gained Dimitri national fame as one
of the best scratchers in Holland. With this on his track record, Dimitri made his first appearance in
1988 at the newly opened house temple "Roxy" in Amsterdam which is to this day one of Europe's
leading dance Mecca's. Over ten years later, Dimitri still calls the "Roxy" home where he displays
his unique music style playing a diverse blend of Trance, House, Jungle and Breakbeat.
Following his success in 1989, Dimitri was the pioneer in mixing the first DJ-mixed
dance compilation CD which is now seen as a standard industry format.
By 1991, Dimitri is already playing partys in Ibiza and starts his own label "BeST"
(Beautiful Soul Techno). The label has its own definitive sound, which is immediately
emulated in US Techno Music town number one, Detroit.
In December 1992, Dimitri becomes co-owner of now famous, record label and shop
1993, Dimitri mixes and releases three Outland compilations and still finds time to play
in the UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Finland and in the Caribbean.

Body" and "Romy Luna" made him an internationally recognized
1995 brings Dimitri a residency at the famous UK club Renaissance alongside John Digweed & Sasha.

over 25 dates. Later that same year he starts his monthly residency at America's premier club
TWILO alongside Sasha & Digweed and Carl Cox.
