Stooki Sound
Stööki Sound is DJ Lukey and Jelacee. The London-based duo has made its career on pushing boundaries within the bass music scene by staying true to their love of UK Grime. Early on, they collaborated with like-minded producers like Mr.Carmack and Hucci to create "Uppers" and "Ball So Hard," two of the most iconic songs in the Trap scene today. In the past year they have smashed through tours all over the world, satiating the needs of their worldwide fan base. They've gone from successful headlining runs in the U.S., to touring with Dillon Francis in the U.K. and selling out 100% of their shows in Australia. They are now setting their sights on a world tour in 2016. More focused than ever, nothing can stop the Stooki Movement.
Joker
Joker
Joker is an immensely precocious talent, he burst onto the Dubstep and Grime scenes in 2008 with the vibrant 'Grimey Princess' and 'Gully Brook Lane' which were released on Earwax and Plastician's Terrorhythm imprint respectively. His productions possess a rare duality of intense and nonchalant energy, the soundtrack to a pimp on an interstellar journey.

Joker's musical peers include Rustie, Gemmy and Kode 9, the recognised tastemaker and man behind Hyperdub who identified Joker as one to watch when he named him as his protégée for Mary Anne Hobbs' hugely seminal follow-up to Dubstep Wars, Generation Bass; broadcast worldwide on BBC Radio 1.

Joker's video can be viewed on Youtube and in testament to the level of interest in this Bristolian talent, continues to be the highest viewed video of the Maida Vale session.

Joker has remixed Roni Size, Simian Mobile Disco and Lil Boots, his productions are battered by DJs including Skream, Rustie, Harmonic 313 and Plastician. Pitchfork named Joker, 2008 Producer Of The Year a huge accolade for a producer who's not only just out of his teens but also just out of the starting blocks.

Born to Grime and adopted by Dubstep, Joker is reluctant to be classified, but his soul drenched productions have been described as Jehri Curl Boogie and Wiley stuck in an elevator with Cameo. Whatever you call it, as we move through 2009 and beyond, Joker is one of the shining stars that can be seen in the distance and by the time the light of his electric melody's reaches our eardrums he has already begun the next phase of his journey.
