Star Warz presents 10 Years of Exit Records
STAR WARZ is an internationally highly respected Drum ‘n’ Bass concept. Star Warz had almost all upcoming or established artists & labels in the scene over and it is one of the partners of Tomorrowland - proclaimed ‘best festival’ at many awards - since day one.
Star Warz was created by Mister M & One87 over 12 years ago and it quickly blew up to one of the finest Drum ‘n’ Bass concepts the world has ever seen. A combination of high quality line ups, great artwork, a top class venue and a heavyweight sound-system is at the base of its huge success. A success that was proven once again at the previous Extra Large edition in two rooms of Vooruit!
Star Warz is often the concept of choice of leading labels and their label-nights or B-days ... and this time they have been selected by leading Exit Recordings for the celebration of their 10th anniversary. Exit Records is the product of a life-long love affair with music for Darren White (aka dBridge). Since its inception in 2003, Exit has become renowned for forward-thinking music and setting high standards in production and presentation.
The Exit Records club nights have become extremely popular with a star studded selection of the scene’s most influential DJ’s operating in and around the edges of 170 BPM electronic music. With highly praised nights and stages across the UK and Europe including Outlook, Dimensions, & Sun and Bass festivals, A Bunch Of Cuts, & a residency at Fabric, the labels line-ups have become firm favourites for their unique vibe.
2013 marks ‘10 Years of Exit Records’ and the label is bringing out a steady stream of high profile releases throughout the year to celebrate the anniversary. ‘10 Years Of Exit’ was celebrated for the first time in London @ Fire in April with a huge line-up including Bad Company (reunion set with all 4 original members), dBridge, Calibre, Breakage (classics set), Marcus Intalex, Fabio (Speed set), Doc Scott (Blue Note set), Klute and many others. It was one of those nights that go down in the history books. And also for Star Warz, Exit are bringing the very best that the label has to offer, starting – obviously – with the label boss, D-Bridge, himself.
He’s bringing along Alix Perez, who will be returning to home ground as this Belgian made career in the UK and just unleashed his second album on Shogun Audio called ‘Chroma Chords’ upon the public. Next up is Fracture from Fracture & Neptune who are now running their own label Astrophonica after having released tracks on labels as Exit, Metalheadz and Subtitles.
And also Skeptical has smashed it out for almost every dark Drum ‘n’ Bass label worth its salt: from Exit Records, Critical, Dispatch, Renegade Hardware to Broken Audio. Om Unit then has his debut album on Civil Music in the pipeline as well as releases for Metalheadz next to running his own imprint, Cosmic Bridge.
Masters of ceremony are leading MC’s SP:MC and LX One, they will hype you up to the max!
And off course, no Star Warz without resident One87 who’s doing really well on Critical Records and is teaming up with MC Mush again and a chance for a young talent in the form of S-VB who’s already got a couple of tracks to his name!
A night filled with exquisite Drum ‘n’ Bass from start to finish and one of the most respected labels around, that’s Star Warz for your and our pleasure!
