Sleep Deprivation & Proxemics present: Marcus Intalex (Soul:r, Metalheadz / UK)
- + more TBA
With an incredibly prolific output from the early 90’s onward, Marcus epitomises the word “pioneer” in both drum & bass and jungle, contributing countless classics on labels as diverse and applauded as Flex, Metalheadz, Renegade Hardware, Exit, Hospital, Shogun and his own critically acclaimed label Soul:r. Encompassing a vast breadth of contemporary dance music, he has cemented his legacy as a true innovator through many reinventions of his sound for well over two decades, now operating in both the breakbeat and house/techno arenas with consistent praise for his releases including a 5 star Fabric mix dubbed by RA as the best dnb mix in the FabricLive series.
The subtly experimental value of his music and a willingness to take ambitious risks in his business life has influenced countless contemporary industry heavyweights. From helping to launch the career of Dutch stalwart Martyn to providing early label support for artists such as Break, Alix Perez, Icicle, Klute and Lynx, hosting the output of Calibre, DRS, LSB and ST Files on his own label, notable collaborations with High Contrast, S.P.Y and XRS and ventures into the dancefloor world with a new alias “Trevino”, it’s clear that his presence has helped shaped dance music as we know it.
Marcus’ finesse in the art of the DJ set is internationally renowned, so spaces will fill quickly for this.

Koven – One of the most unique and exciting bass music outfits to emerge in recent times, Koven is the production alias of producer Max Rowat and Katie Boyle.
Having released tracks on from Viper Recordings to Ministry Of Sound they are part of a new wave of bass music producers who blur the lines between traditional drum n bass forms and new movements in electronic music’s aural evolution.
By 2014 their talents were in hot demand and remix requests flooded in from juggernauts such as Borgore, Hadouken and The Prototypes, resulting in the group racking up millions of internet plays in a few short months.
STEALTH – Stealth’s story is one total diligence and determination. Hosted by D&B pioneer Bryan Gee, Movement is cherished as one of the most respected, forward-thinking D&B weeklies to ever take place in the UK, and Stealth, eventually earned himself a place as a resident warm-up artist.
Stealth’s production stripes were inevitable. By 2004 he and Stylus were making themselves known to labels, with Bailey’s Intasound being the first imprint to embrace their robust rollers. His sound sits comfortably across all corners of the drum & bass scene with decorated releases on labels as varied and respected as V Recordings, Renegade Hardware, Ingredients, Subtitles, Critical and Ram Records. Stealth is now officially signed to Ram Records, and regularly touring across Europe and beyond. Make no mistakes; Stealth’s story is only just getting started. His diligence and determination continues unabated.
