Disc Breaks with Llupa - 131 - ft. Diistortiion - 26th August 2010


First up big thanks to everybody whop supported me at the recent NSB Radio awards. To be nominated was great, to win two categories - 'Best Antipodean DJ' and 'Voice Of NSB Radio' - was just awesome, so thank you.

This week I have another treat for you in the form of a live guest mix from now local Diistortiion! Glen Diistortiion moved over from the West Coast to Melbourne and brought with him his unique blend of genre bending, rock infused, groovy, stompin' breakbeat. With a recent release on Ridiculoud and another about to drop expect a mix chock full of new Diistortiion material - 'tis gonna be wicked.



Diistortiion
Originating from Perth, Western Australia, DiiSTORTiiON discovered breakbeat in his early clubbing days and never looked back.
Seeing acts like Soul of Man, Krafty Kuts, Aquasky and Adam Freeland, rock Perth’s most renowned underground club – Ambar, completely converted him over to electronic music and his alter ego DiiSTORTiiON was born.

Quickly gaining sets at clubs all over Perth, DiiSTORTiiON got well known for his sound being more of the harder edged style of breaks while still having a party vibe blended throughout. Playing out more and more eventually caught the eye of Perth’s Elite Dj’s “Japan 4”, otherwise known as Ambar’s residents and he was invited to join their ranks.

Stepping outside the clubs DiiSTORTiiON kept busy by doing plenty of local radio support slots and a five year long weekly radio show called ‘Broken Frequency’. Starting out on local Australian radio Kranky Digital, DiiSTORTiiON eventually moved over to the number one online breakbeat radio station in the world NSB Radio, where he hosted a weekly 2 hour radio show showcasing the newest breakbeat tracks to a worldwide audience.

Spreading outside of Perth DiiSTORTiiON toured regularly on the east coast of Australia supporting such acts as Elite Force, Chase & Status and Rouge Element while they were on tour. Gigs on the east coast got so regular he eventually decided to pick up everything and move over to Melbourne to continue his Dj career from there.

2010 has been a busy year for DiiSTORTiiON. His hard work in the studio has eventually paid off with three of his original tracks being signed to USA breakbeat label Ridiculoud Records. On the djing front he has picked up multiple residences with the Mixed Messages crew, Skool of Thoughts ‘Against the Grain’ parties, Brown Alleys resident Saturdays ‘Under Suspicion’, Melbourne’s premium weekly breaks night ‘Bass Camp’ at Lounge and guests spots all over town. Support slots have also stepped up with DiiSTORTiiON being fortunate enough to share the stage with some of the biggest names in the business including Stanton Warriors, Elite Force, Ctrl Z, Napt, General Midi, Freestylers plus many more.

Moving into promotions he is heavily involved in running the Mixed messages parties and Brown Alleys Saturdays ‘Under suspicion’ with mate Muska and all the mixed messages crew.

So what to expect from a live set? Loving the way Djing is moving forward DiiSTORTiiON embraces the genre mashing styles of dj’s these days and pushes all sounds he loves into a dj set. Be that breakbeat, dnb, dub step hip hop or electro he will mold it into a dj set and blended with a heap of his own edits, bootlegs and original tracks to express himself musically through his djing. If you like big basslines, phat drums and big synths then come check it out!!

Disc Breaks with Llupa - 130 - ft. Farace - 12th August 2010


Back again with more exclusive Disc Breaks Guest mix shizzle - this time from one of the Don's of the US Breakbeat scene - Farace!



Farace
With originals and remixes on labels such as Caffeine, Kick It, Dead Famous, Kaleidoscope, Boxon and many more, Farace is truly pushing the envelope in US break-beat production. Being from Florida people usually do not associate his 'sound' with the Florida breaks that one would expect. Over the past two years Farace has gained global respect reflected in remix opportunities for over 19 record labels worldwide, including Bombeatz (US), Dead Famous (UK) and The Saw (Russia). He has constantly been on the top Breaks charts peaking songs at number 3 on Beatport and taking number 1 at several others such as TrackItDown, DaneMusicHub and DjTunes. You can find his music on countless dj mixes and it has also received airplay from top web and real radio shows including NuSkoolBreaks.co.uk and Kiss FM UK. No stranger to the decks, Farace has played with artists such as Krafty Kuts, Dj Funk, Dj Irene, Rabbit In The Moon and countless others since his beginning. With recent global bookings at elite events such as the Ultra Music Festival in Miami Florida and Breakspoll at Fabric London, his journey has just begun.
