Profile of the performer DS1: Now DS1 is far from a rookie to underground electronic music. As well as being one of the pioneers of Bassline and 4/4 and remixing for Bhangra superstar Panjabi MC, he has produced UK Funky smash hits under the alias Darkus Beat Company and is responsible for arguably the biggest club smasher of 2009/2010, the Tempa T - Next Hype Funky Mashup. He is now producing what he describes as "anything 140bpm", a mixture of Grime, Hip Hop, Garage, and Dubstep. In 2011, his productions have received support from the likes of Plastician, Starkey, DJ Target, Logan Sama, Elijah & Skilliam just to name a few gaining airplay on BBC 1Xtra, Rinse FM, Kiss FM amongst many other FM and online radio stations. He released the "Kickback" EP mid 2011 along with the "Stuck in the Machine" EP featuring London grime MC Griminal and has another EP scheduled for release on Philadelphia based label Slit Jockey towards the end of the year.
