MTA 5th Birthday: Chase & Status (DJ Set) + MC Rage + Sub Focus + MC ID + Sigma + Kove + Knytro + Gotsome + Billion + Josh Butler + Toyboy & Robin + TCTS + Northbase + Arkive
Chase (Will) & Status (Saul) have been hailed as 'the most exciting producers in the UK today'. They met at Manchester University through their mutual love of drum and bass in the mid nineties and have DJ'd ever since. Their frenetic formula of raging riffs and high octane breakdowns earned their acclaimed album 'No More Idols' double platinum status, whilst their baffling, on-the-fly manipulation of dirty, ferocious beats has attracted a devoted global fan base, who live and breathe that tumultuous bass driven sound.
Chase & Status (DJ Set) tour dates
From his beginnings as a bedroom DJ five years ago, to headlining the Glade stage at Glastonbury in 2010, Nick Douwma, better known as Sub Focus, has become one of the most interesting, innovative and important voices working in British electronic music today.
Douwma has created compositions for Chase & Status (Flashing Lights) and Example (Kickstarts), remixed The Prodigy, Deadmau5 and Dizzee Rascal, while his own tracks (including Airplane, X-Ray, Rock It, Could This Be Real) have won Sub Focus fans in the form of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Grooverider and Mistajam.

Leeds University alumni, international chart toppers Sigma met while balancing raving and studying, working in record shops and promoting events to top up their student loans. While some don their artist mantle when the occasion demands it, Cameron and Joe have made Sigma their 'life' since graduation.
Early releases with Hospital Records, Viper, Bingo and DJ Fresh's Breakbeat Kaos, as well as their own Life Recordings, quickly marked them out as producers to watch, while remixes for Eric Prydz, Ellie Goulding, Stylo G and Sway began to take them to a wider audience. The world, it seems, is now their oyster.
Sigma tour dates
Kove set his sights on making his mark in the ever-expanding drum and bass scene. He was brought to the attention of Viper Recordings boss Futurebound, who released his first two tracks 'Stellar' and 'Breach' in early 2012.

Knytro is a young, US hip-hop artist who ditched America to come and write and live in the UK. An unusual choice, but one that seems to have paid off, as Knytro has accompanied British act Chase & Status on tour and been signed by their label, MTA.
Knytro tour dates
House and techno DJ responsible for the 2013 Ibiza hit 'I Got A Feeling'. Bass driven, sumptuously groovy and a melodic top line which draws influence from a lifetime of listening to music from Kerri Chandler to Pink Floyd, King Tubby to Paul Glazby.
Josh Butler tour dates
"Toyboy & Robin bridge a gap in music that seems incredibly unique. Descriptions that place them on the edges of house music mixed with current forms of the developing bass scene are only a mere start. Their strong sense of pop music’s formula stretches the typical catchy chorus over the length of an entire track. What results are sweet electronic rhythms complimented by even sweeter edits and alterations to blissful R&B vocal lines." - Beatport Sean
