Feel my Bicep (UK) — London based, Belfast-born blogger-production-dj duo Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson need little by way of introduction. Their “Feel My Bicep blog” is the go-to place for tastemakers world-wide for lost and forgotten disco/Chicago house/Detroit techno/Italo edits and everything in-between. On a production tip, they have released on such labels as Throne Of Blood, Traveller Records, and Mystery Meat. Their remix track record has also been excellent, with the duo stamping their distinguished sound upon works from Blondes, Toby Tobias, Disclosure, Blood Orange, Cosmic Kids, and many more. Bicep was added to Will Saul’s label Aus, releasing a collaborative EP including the tracks “You” and “Don’t.” In 2015 the relationship with Aus became further developed with the 4 track Just EP in May, with the title track voted best track of the year by the BBC Essential Mix. That success was quickly followed by the release of the Dahlia EP in September 2015.
Ben UFO (UK) — As one of the co-founders of Hessle Audio, Ben UFO has been responsible, alongside Pearson Sound and Pangaea, for some of the most varied and ground breaking releases of recent years, having become immersed in the still emerging dubstep scenes in London and Leeds in 2005. As BPMs have dropped and influences have broadened, so too has the vision of Ben UFO’s DJing. He was the first DJ to play material by producers such as Blawan and Joy Orbison, both now scene figureheads, and his weekly slot on London’s leading ex-pirate radio station, RinseFM, is considered to be one of the only places to hear the most exclusive new music by both new and established producers. In addition to well received podcasts in magazines and websites as varied as XLR8R, Red Bull Music Academy, and Fact Magazine, Resident Advisor readers elected him the Fourth Best DJ in the World in 2015
