With a formidable blend of turntablism & live saxphone, Dephicit and Summer Bright are taking the underground head on with their finely tuned ghetto-funk sound, bridging raw jazz and swing elements with alien basslines and rawkus beats.
Dephicit is no stranger to the studio, consistently delivering a slew of bangers to your ears on labels such as Riddim Fruit and Adapted Records, gaining him international support for his productions. With a handful of featured remixes in Mixmag as well as his track 'Babuska' gaining support from UK legend Ed Solo. This young producer has enlisted the power of live sax courtesy of the effervescent Summer Bright, resulting in the marriage of dirty drops and authentic live instrumentation.
This dynamic duo have taken their stomping ground by force, performing over 35 shows in the UK and Europe in 2013, supporting local and international heavy hitters Slamboree, Featurecast, Gypsy Disco, Hong Kong Ping Pong, Itchy and Skratchy, Opiuo, Stickybudz, and Wolfie Razzmatazz. With a handful of festival appearances under their belts, including Beach Break & Wrong Fest and two shows at Boomtown in 2013 on both the Boombox and Spaceport stages, this powerful combination will be bringing the noise to the UK Festival circuit this 2014!

He is also one half of Shake N Herb who have an album scheduled for release later this year.

As well as having his original tracks remixed by artists such as Mr Bill, Teknian, Mustard Tiger, Blunt Instrument & MakO to name a few.

Hailing from the UKs’ thriving underground music culture, Shamanic Technology takes elements from all over the sonic cosmos and fuses them together with melody and bass to create conscious, omni-tempo music for the bass rituals of tomorrow.
As comfortable producing bass-heavy neuro as he is laying down cinematic, mid-tempo or brain shaking drum & bass and drumstep. Shamanic Technology’s productions and live performances are highly energetic, sometimes emotive, fierce and driving, often uplifiting and he is no stranger to the stage. With DJ sets and live showcases across the global festival circuit, club scene and beyond. His music has taken him to Glade Festival (Meteor & Poundland), The Secret Garden Party (Drop Stage), Noisily (Main Stage), Leopalluza (EDM Tent), Burning Man (US) , Motion Notion Festival (Canada), High Times Awards (Amsterdam) to name but a few; seeing him billed alongside some of the leading names in Bass Music.

Shamanic Technology is music for the glitch generation, a shamanic brew of audio soup, a sonic blue pill for those trapped in the matrix of the mundane.
With a keen focus on the meticulous production that goes into the neuro sound, Skope is a new breed of producer. Creating musical and synth driven Glitch Hop, Neurohop, Dubstep & Drum and Bass, he draws influences from classic Noisa and Spor as well as hip-hop, soul and funk.
Skope recently collaborated with Mr Bill on the Auzzie glitch maestro's artist album, resulting in a next generation glitch n bass hybrid and remixed 'Jump' for Vent on Colony Productions, doing the original much justice with a 100 bpm Neurohop remix!
This pace shows no sign of slowing down as his recent work pricked the ears of acclaimed turntablist Krafty Kuts. Skope is now a full member of the band 'Wicked City' alongside Dynamite MC, Erb N Dub, Steve Yamaha & Chris Sargent and Krafty Kuts. They recently remixed Mr Scruff's 'Get A Move On' as a collaborative project with the promise of greater things to come and you can expect a fully funked EP from Skope on 'Instant Vibez' before 2014 is over!
With an unquenchable lust for new sounds, he aims to continue exploring the sonic spectrum and he has already carved a mark for himself on some of the scenes leading labels such as Caliber Music, Adapted Records and Heavy Artillery.
