DOUBLE NEGATIVE:

As the name suggests, Double_Negative are a positive force within the growing New Zealand breaks scene. The lads, John Henderson and Nick Gardner met at an audio engineering course in 2002 and have been making waves in the breaks scene ever since. They began with drum n bass tunes and eventually progressed to producing solid, original breaks/midtempo tunes which have formed a unique sound, some dark and techy, others atmospheric but altogether their own.

John and Nick have promoted their music while giving other new producers valuable opportunities to have their tracks heard through their break beat collective label, Empathy ( www.empathy.co.nz) which was formed in 2002 with C Form and Shannon Mckenna. Empathy has released three cds so far: Plug_in Drummer, Is This Code and most recently Rumble in the Jungle featuring Mr Smith. These feature well known artists such as Agent Alvin, The Upbeats, Trei and the cream of Double_Negative’s own tracks including Bak to Tek (feat MC Kyla) and Reflex.

Double_Negative has been djing at various venues over the last year and also feature on the Electric Caboose show on Radio Active 89fm. They have DJ’d alongside major players: Freq Nasty, Rouge Element, Breakfastaz, Plump Djs and Krafty Cuts. Double_Negative have also had their own tunes released on UK label: Mechanoise and US label Trans:verse and a couple of forth coming yet to be announced. They have also worked on remixes and collaborations with The Upbeats (NZ), Neztic (Mexico) and White Papoo (France).

Having developed a techy and bass driven production sound, Double_Negative are committed and devoted producers always on the search for the best breaks and phattest bass lines than ever.

FUNK’N’SLOCUTS:

Working away not so quietly in a small pocky studio lacking windows is Nelsons premier breaks producer. Day in and day out he lays down big beats and fat synth bass lines, often sacrificing the relationship with his neighbours due to noise complaints to further this love of Breaks. His name? Ryan Beehre.

You probably know him better as the smooth headed sampler operator of Nelson’s golden child ‘Minuit’, but there’s a lesser known alter ego that he lets loose when he’s flying solo behind a set of decks. Introducing ‘Funk’n’SloCuts’. Not a name to be said to fastly to your mother for fear of being slapped across the face and having your mouth washed out with soap.

Funk’n’SloCuts style of breaks? Its funky and dirty, and currently playing near you. Although consistently playing at clubs up and down New Zealand Funk’n’Slo is a resident at Christchurch’s Concrete Club.
