QUADRANT & IRIS [Seattle, WA]
Hospital / Metalheadz / CIA / Dispatch / Commercial Suicide / Ninja Tune / Intrigue / Avantgarde / Fokuz / Vandall
Iris was introduced to electronic music at age 13, when she first heard Insomnia by Faithless on Seattles C89.5. Since then, her love affair with the music has only intensified as she has honed a diverse set of tastes and an equally exacting repertoire of skills behind the decks. Her journey has taken her from UK Hard House, into the sounds of Trance and Progressive, finally culminating in her current focus of Deep Drum and Bass and Techno.
Iris has been collaborating on original productions with DnB veteran Quadrant. Their first tune, Anthropocene, was spotted immediately by none other than Goldie himself, and snapped up for the Metalheadz Genesis EP volume 4. Since then her productions with Quadrant as well as many other collaborations with local legend Kid Hops have been picked up by a whole host of impressive labels such as CIA, Commercial Suicide, Dispatch and Hospital Records.
With an ever growing arsenal of original productions, a host of exclusive tunes from the hottest producers around the world, all held down by meticulous mixing and track selection, Iris is a force to be reckoned with.

Trust In Music / System
Quadrant, a.k.a Leigh Caplan, has been writing quality Drum and Bass for over a decade. From his humble origins as a hungry young producer in his native Seattle, to his current status as a respected artist on the worldwide scene, the goal has always been the same: make music that he is proud to call his own.
Originally a four-person collective gathered in a Philadelphia basement, Quadrant debuted in 2005 with a string of releases on Renegade Hardware, most notably "Manipulated Living" on the Carpe Diem LP, a track that hasn't left many DJs' crates since. Following these initial successes was a highly respected slew of appearances on Triple Vision labels Citrus and Fokuz, showcasing equal proclivities for dancefloor impact and melodic beauty a rare combination in a genre that so often seems to favor one at the expense of the other.
Quadrant's transformation into a solo project has only served to increase the volume, quality, and focus of the music. It has also allowed for a wider variety of collaborations with like-minded artists from around the world. 2013 marked a time of unabated productivity, starting with the release of Anthropocene (with Iris) on the legendary Metalheadz imprint, and followed by appearances on Hospital, CIA, Dispatch, and Commercial Suicide. Further collaborations with Iris, Kid Hops, Homemade Weapons, Hybris, Lukeino of Bachelors of Science, DStruct and Calculon have all served to inject a welcome diversity into recent tracks.
With the critically acclaimed release of The Microsleep EP on Dispatch, and worldwide DJ support from artists such as Goldie, Klute, Break, A Sides, Silent Witness, Ant TC1, DLR, Survival, Ulterior Motive, and State of Mind, the pace is only quickening. These are exciting times for lovers of heads down, well-crafted Drum and Bass, and Quadrant is here to give them exactly what they want.
Shoot Recordings / San Diego
You know Calculon. His gargantuan beats have been destroying dancefloors for a decade, pushing the envelope at jungle, juke and hardcore parties around the globe. Classic tracks like Fierce, Back the Fuck Up, and "Ben Carlos" with Dave Owen have been cained on BBC Radio, RinseFM, and by dance music dons like Rockwell, Om Unit, Toddla T and Digital, while his label Shoot Recordings is continually on the cutting edge of uptempo sounds. Shit, hes rocked from Tokyo to Fabric in London, circumnavigated the world twice, but who is Calculon really? How did this handsome California lad become such a motherfucking behemoth of bassmusic murder? Why do A-list producers line up to work with dude? And where in the hell is he taking dancefloors next? Lets be straight: you may think you know Calculon, but you havent seen nothing yet.
