SIN CITY RECORDINGS TOUR
HATCHA - Sin City/Newstate/Tempa/Big Apple - Croydon UK
NAMED AS ONE OF MIXMAG'S GREATEST DJs OF ALL TIME
No one DJ or indeed producer can claim sole credit for dubstep. But when the history of the genre gets told, no DJ has ever had, or perhaps ever will again have so much influence over the course of the genre as Hatcha. It's no overstatement to say the entire genre bares his stamp.
Hatcha's roots seep deep back into late '90s UK garage, Croydon and pirate radio. Originally the buyer at the now defunct Big Apple record shop, Hatcha was one of the very first DJs to pick up on the new dark strains of 2step that were being made by local producers like El-B, Artwork and Horsepower at the turn of the millennium. As the producers came into the shop to sell white labels of these niche new sounds, a community arose. The shop began its own label, Big Apple Records and its first release was the dubstep classic "Red" by the shop's resident producer Artwork. The next releases came from his two protégés, Benga and Skream.
As the garage sounds from south London began to take on their own unique, dark swung direction, it became clear that the nascent scene needed a home. In 2001 Forward>>, dubstep's founding club, started with Hatcha a resident. It was here he began to up the ante. While other DJs came with a collection of white labels (tracks immanently due for a public release), he arrived with a box of upfront dubplates: unique one-off exclusive tracks. No DJ could test.
Throughout the decade Hatcha's sets, first on south London pirates then Rinse FM and now Kiss 100, went from strength to strength. His headline slots at Forward>> forged the genre into the form we now know it in. This was in no small part because he had exclusive access to Benga and Skream's music, before adding three new producers: Mala Digital Mystikz, Coki and Loefah to his arsenal. The destiny of an entire scene lay in his hands, every time he played.
In 2003 he even played a part in naming the genre. Amidst the scene's key players: the Big Apple camp and Ammunition who ran Forward>> and Tempa, the term "dubstep" (from dubby 2step garage), began being circulated. It appeared in a press release and then on a US magazine cover. Hatcha was then asked to mix the scene's first compilation that cemented the use of the name: Dubstep Allstars vol 1. He must have done something right: they asked him back to co-mix volume 4.
Since those times Hatcha has gone on to hold down his flagship Kiss 100 show alongside long time MC, Crazy D, DJ across the planet, co-produce with a variety of the scene's heavyweights and mix compilations such as Ten Tons Heavy for Planet Mu & the UK charting 100% Pure Dubstep. Catch DJ Hatcha under a weighty system near you sometime soon.

MC CRAZY D - London UK - Legendary MC
From humble grime infested roots in South East London, and of Jamaican descent, the influence of Crazy D's heritage has always been evident.
He first found a mike in his buggy aged 6 months, and appeared on stage alongside the likes of Beres Hammond, Bob Marley, Lee Perry, and Garnet Silk. It has been suggested that some of his signature exclamations such as "YEEEAAAHH", originated at this time when he was actually trying to get his mother to give him his bottle.
A veteran in voice projection and mike technology by the age of 4, he began to widen his repertoire to include phrases such as "NOW CHECK IT!", which at that time referred to the levels on the mike he was using at nursery school.
His love of bass grew rapidly and he could regularly be found sitting on top of large speakers at family gatherings writing rhymes on the back of Rizla packets about how the darker bass sounds can produce a 'WIGGLE IN THE WAIST' in members of the opposite sex.
He has a rootical love of Reggae & Dancehall, and in terms of UK dance music, moved through the genres of Hardcore and Jungle to his early career moves in UK Garage.
His interest in this genre was piqued when it morphed from a predominantly 4/4 (4 to the floor) beat, to a harder, darker 2/4 beat, with ruder B-lines, dubbed 2-Step.
Bass-man Crazy D MC'd for G Money on UpFront 99.3FM, London's leading pirate station for UK Garage at the height of its popularity, and also home to the late great MC Easy Rider (RIP) and DJ Hatcha who then worked at Big Apple.
As UKG's demise split the genre into factions such as Grime, funky house and of course DUBSTEP, Crazy D's taste in music placed him firmly in the frame as one of Dubstep's original South East London pioneers.
He has been pivotal in wholeheartedly driving this sound alongside his long-standing compadre, Hatcha, and all originators of the Dubstep genre, working sparsely attended nights in the early days of 2001, to the fruition of the genre that we witness today.
FWD>> was originally held in room three at 'Tru Playaz', DJ Hype's DnB night. It then moved to the Velvet Rooms once every few months, and finally to Plastic People.
Crazy D was and still is Fwd>>'s primo host. He also MC'd at Tru Playaz b2b with MC Juiceman for Hatcha , although not at the Velvet Rooms. Fwd>> came every other Thursday, then every Friday, and is now held every Sunday at Plastic People.
Bass was always the case at Fwd>>, which provided a 'no lyrics, no grime' environment where they played their own beats to their own people - the crowd largely comprising DJ'S/producers, MC's: EL-B, Zed Bias, Oris Jay, J da Flex, Hatcha, Crazy D, Benny Ill, Juiceman, Youngsta, Slimzee, Slaughter Mob, Kode 9, and their people.
2003/4 hailed the arrival of DMZ (Digital Mystikz ) which began at 3rd Bass in Brixton, and was first hosted by Crazy D who was in his element often MC'ing solo for up to six hours a night. The venue was forced to change to Mass to accommodate the swarms of attendant Dubsteppers, where it is still held by original residents, Mala, Coki, Loefah, Crazy D and Sgt. Pokes.
Crazy D is resident at DMZ London and Leeds, FWD>>, Why Not?, Outlook Festival, Custard Factory (Birmingham), Tuesday Club (Sheffield) and Fabric, and tours globally as one of the UK underground's hardest working MC's.
KISS 100FM is home to his weekly show (http://kube.totalkiss.com/?jumpto=kiss100) presenting Hatcha and a host of other key Dubstep DJ's every Tues from 1 til 2!
MC Crazy D also holds a host of releases under his belt, including 'Flex Ting' (Sin City), 'Worries Again'/Distance (Planet Mu - Marianne Hobbs' compilation), 'Showtime'/EnMe. His vocals have featured on tracks by Skream, Coki, Benga (alongside Lady Destiny), and Tubby to name but a few. Crazy's production work now finds him in cahoots with the Godfather of Dubstep EL-B, and he is also honing his own portfolio of beats for release.
