Canvas Presents: Soul:ution ft. Calibre, Marcus Intalex & MC DRS (Drum & Bass)
Dominick Martin aka Calibre has been responsible for some of the most beauti- ful tracks in drum & bass to date and continues to drop jaws worldwide with his sublime and sultry productions. From his first full length LP on Creative Source to his latest album “Spill” on his own label Signa- ture, Calibre’s sound has progressed taking in elements of jazz, funk, dub and techno but lost none of it’s soul. His influence in drum & bass has been profound yet Calibre continues to evolve as an artist, exploring new techniques and styles in his music.Having played all over the world from Belfast to Dunedin, Calibre certainly knows how to captivate a crowd. His sets focus primarily on the deeper, more musical side of drum & bass yet never dis- appoint the dancefloor. Each performance fea- tures a high percentage of his own original music, much of it never to be heard again, and each set cements his position as the undisputed leading light of the deeper side of Drum and Bass. Artists and DJ’s from all corners of the electronic music spectrum constantly remark on Calibre DJ sets restoring their faith in Drum & Bass as a vital musical force.
MARCUS INTALEX (Soul:R, UK):
Both as an artist and a DJ, Marcus Intalex represents the forefront of soulful, musical drum & bass. Heading up the legendary Soul:r label, he has worked with artists such as Calibre and S. P. Y and and always sought to release quality music with lasting appeal. Marcus’s DJ sets have earned him a reputation as a tastemaker, not afraid to test crowds with a fresh high quality selection from across the spectrum of drum & bass.A passion for techno has always run deeply through his music, demonstrated by his recent success as an artist in the house and techno fields as Trevino.He represents Soul:ution with residencies in Manchester and at London’s Fabric plus a radio show for Red Bull Music Academy. In 2012 and 2013 Marcus continues to forge new musical frontiers both with his solo Drum and Bass releases, Soul:r the label, Soul:ution the club night, and now as house / techno producer / DJ Trevino.
MC DRS (UK):
Respected amongst his peers as one of the most talented wordsmiths in UK music, his journey began as a host for Marcus Intalex in the hardcore raves around Manchester and Liverpool at the start of the 90’s. His introduction came from a friend, already in love with bourgeoning rave scene.It’s the Soul:R camp that DRS calls home, with both label and artists growing alongside one another on many different platforms, whether in the studio or on tour. It was only natural for DRS’ debut album ‘I Don’t Usually Like MCs But...’ to be released via Soul:R, which went on to receive huge acclaim from listeners and press alike. Never limiting himself to just one style of music, DRS, with fellow musicians Strategy and DJ Konny Kon, formed the well respected hip-hop crew Broke ‘n’ £nglish. Alongside this, DRS is also favoured as Toddla T’s host of choice for live shows.2015 will see the release of his second album ‘Mid Mic Crisis’, once again on Soul:R. All the stops have been pulled out for this project, with the producer-list reading like a who’s who of modern electronic music. From Addison Groove and Die to Toddla T via Calibre, a triumphantly diverse album that will once again cement DRS as one of the leaders in his craft.
