Star Warz is teaming up with Dispatch Recordings and Flexout Audio on October the 5th. Are you into a cool slice of DnB? Head over to Ghent's main DnB venue, Vooruit, where things will be happening soon!

After hosting a stage at Tomorrowland and Rampage Open Air, Star Warz is back at their home-base, Vooruit in Ghent. This time, they are joining forces with the dopest drum & bass record labels out there: Dispatch Recordings and Flexout Audio.

Dispatch Recordings is one of the biggest D&B labels, based in the United Kingdom. From 1996 and onwards to 1998 'Dispatch' formed a series of tracks from the Hidden Agenda brothers that appeared on Goldie's Metalheadz imprint. In 2001, Ant TC1 along with Hidden Agenda, founded 'Dispatch' the record label. Over many years, the label has gone on to release music from the likes of Stress Level & Ant TC1, AI, Total Science, Zero T, Survival, Chris.SU, Marcus Intalex, Cern, DLR & Break and more. Remixes from the likes of Polar, XRS, Commix, Xtrah, Blocks & Escher, Mako, SCAR and Lenzman to name a few, along with numerous various artist albums and standalone artist concept album projects. Fast forward to 2015 and Ant TC1 is solely responsible for the running & label manager role of Dispatch Recordings.

Flexout Audio is a London based record label established in 2011 owned and run by label founder, Tom Bassi and recent 2017 team addition, Andy Tweedale (formerly one half of Amoss). The label's sound has always specialised in the deeper, darker side of Drum and Bass music, now being recognised in the scene as a key advocate of the growing sound of stripped back, yet intensely heavy beats. Home to early releases from the likes of Philth, Ed:It, Hyroglifics, Arkaik, Mystic State, and Monty. Over the last few years, Flexout Audio has continued to go from strength to strength with a slew of releases from the ever growing roster of artists, international label events and a continued driven approach to pushing the style that makes Flexout Audio stand out as an individual force within Drum and Bass.

Star Warz, Dispatch Recordings and Flexout Audio will bring you a varied line-up of D&B's finest, pure gritty beats and the coolest underground vibes. October 5th will be a night to remember. See you then!

Ant TC1
Ant TC1 along with Hidden Agenda founded Dispatch Recordings back in 2001. His first release alongside frequent production partner Stress Level appeared on Dispatch after almost 3 years of hard work. After their first release hit the stores, they quickly picked up a wealth of DJ support across their early material and went on to release for a list of established Drum & Bass record labels including the likes of Renegade, CIA, Advanced, Critical Records Integral, Liquid V, Commercial Suicide, Good Looking Records, Bingo Beats and Samurai Music. Fast forward to 2015 and Ant is now responsible for the label management roles of both Metalheadz & Dispatch Recordings. Having released a compilation series on Dispatch, the hugely successful “Transit One†& “Transit Two†albums. Ant has recently remixed material for the likes of Cern & Dabs, Sunchase, Quadrant & Iris, Friske as well as having his own solo work remixed by Xtrah along with working on further collabs with the likes of Survival & DLR.

Somewhere deep in the Surrey hills, armed only with a laptop, a few choice records and a bucket load of creativity and ambition Peter Goebel AKA Arkaik began his career within drum and bass. Fast forward 15 years and Arkaik has since become a pioneer for the stripped back and half time sound. As an original, core artist for the infamous label Diffrent Music, Arkaik saw his first major release 'Stress Relief/Second Bass' in 2010 gaining him instant recognition. During his success with Diffrent Music, Arkaik managed to propel his status further when he won the Octane & DLR remix competition hosted by the mighty Dispatch Recordings. In 2014 Arkaik made the bold decision to move to Shanghai & started focusing more on dance floor stripped back drum n bass. Since being based there he completed tours of China, Australia, Japan, Taiwan and played throughout Europe. He had his debut release on Flexout Audio entitled "My Love EP" and his groundbreaking "Shapes EP" for Dispatch Limited.

Bassi began DJ'ing in 2006 after building up an extensive vinyl collection of classic drum and bass records. It was in 2008 whilst at University Bassi became a promoter and started "Flexout" at Lincolns Studen Union: Engine Shed. He bought the likes of Andy C, Roni Size, Shy FX, High Contrast, Spectrasoul & Breakage to the City and in 2011 turned the popular club night into a record label (Flexout Audio) releasing early music from friends Ed:it, Philth, Kasra, Spyda, dRamatic & dBaudio. With a vision to form a core group of exciting new artists pushing drum and bass from the deep end Bassi continuously improved the output and brand of his record label which is now a household name to junglists over the globe.

Black Barrel
The multi genre background of drum & bass artist Black Barrel (Evgenii) has helped him encompass a full spectrum of influences throughout his slick sonic cuts. The first time Black Barrel was introduced to the versatile 174bpm world was through the "Pirate Station" program on Russian channel "Radio Record". It was the "World of Drum & Bass" party in 2014 which would eventually solidify his path. Here he met Alexander Nami; a sound engineer working across a variety of clubs, he had access to pioneer decks, where Evgenii was introduced to the equipment and taught the basics of DJing. His growing experience with the deeper vibes began to serve as a basis for his discovery of imprints like Dispatch Recordings. More recently he released his 3rd EP "Labyrinthâ" on Dispatch Recordings, demonstrating the ruminations of artists like DLR and Break. His release "Still Fucking Warm" on DLR's Sofa Sound has continued to set a standard, one which has been gaining momentum on each one of his outputs. And having just begun his journey, Black Barrel epitomises the new breed of producer, bringing with him the contemporary styles and stylistic roots which made the genre originally so recognisable.
