The ultimate no-nonsense party-rocking, festival-shocking combo, Hot Cakes Live brings together three of the finest DJs on the UK bass circuit - Deekline, Ed Solo and JFB - with the microphone talents of the mighty Rubi Dan. This raucous trio of renowned turntable killers will be blowing up main stages across the UK and beyond this summer, coming through in full effect to get those bassbins seriously booming.
A bass music icon from the days of his Platinum-selling UK garage anthem I Don't Smoke Da Reefer, Deekline recently released (with Ed Solo) new album Bounce 'n' Shake, a tour de force of booty bass, jungle, soul, breaks, dubstep, drumstep and drum 'n' bass sent down with the kind of assurance one might expect from a DJ who has sent bodies flying round the room at club venues across the globe for more than a decade. Expect brazen and bombastic badboy anthems accompanied by skilled, selective scratch techniques capable of hyping up even the most taciturn of crowds from an artist who recently proved his hipster credentials with remixes for the likes of Lethal Bizzle and Laidback Luke.
Joining Deekline on stage will be partner in crime Ed Solo, an expert studio guru whose sublime engineering skills are equalled only by his nack for a booty-bouncing hook and an ability to throw down on the turntables. When it comes to pouring on the bass frequencies, Ed's skills are unrivalled, whether the tune in question be a killer dubstep cut, an upfront slice of drum 'n' bass, a booming booty house number or a funky, electro-fuelled breaks 12". Ed has DJed all over the world, bringing his unique ear for a heavy slice of wax to up for it crowds as far afield as the UK and Australia. This is an artist who long ago stepped out to claim his rightful place in the grand pantheon of bass music heroes.
Our final Hot Cakes Live decknician is two-time UK DMC champ JFC, who will be slipping his unique brand of turntable exhibitionism into the mix. Described by no less than Fatboy Slim as "The Thinking Man's Grandmaster Flash", this Brighton-based DJ and producer is a scratch daddy for the bass music generation, an artist who is as likely to beat juggle dubstep rollers as he is to throw down live remixes of classic hip-shaking 12"s (check out his barmy take on DJ Shadow's Midnight in a Perfect World or infamous four-turntable reworking of Fatboy Slim's Right Here Right Now on YouTube for a taste of what to expect). With releases on iconic labels such as Hospital records, Rat Records, Skint Records, Hot Cakes and GhettoFunk, JFB has DJed all over the world from LoveBox and Glastonbury to Canada's iconic Shambhala and Bestival's Big Top Stage, where he's a huge favourite. Catch Hot Cakes Live and it won't take long for you to find out why.
Deekline, Ed Solo and JFB will be joined on stage by Rubi Dan, one of the UK's best known MCs and a hero of Deekline and Ed Solo's Hot Cakes label, currently the biggest name in breakbeat-edged bass music and the inspiration for Hot Cakes Live.
