No Frills, Locus and The Handful come together to bring you a massive night of Dubstep and
Garage at the Glasshouse, UTS.


MJ Cole began setting the music precedent for all to follow way back in 1998. Phenomenal
success was achieved in the release of instant anthems - Flava Fever/Guilty and Youre
Mine on Matts self-owned label, Prolific Recordings. Youre Mine was shortly followed
by the release of epic single Sincere, a track eagerly sniffed out by Pete Tong and
quickly named Petes essential tune four weeks running.

Being prolific by name and prolific by nature, MJ Cole exploded into the UK garage scene
as the genres prodigy and primary innovator with his Mercury Prize nominated album Sincere
in 2000. The album, which also won him the accolade of Best Producer from the prestigious
Muzik and Mobo magazine awards, sold over 100,000 copies in the UK alone and spawned two
outstanding Top 15 singles.

His accolades and appraisal is owed to the many years spent tempering and championing an
unusually wide and all-encompassing professional path. His student days were spent
studying classical music at LCU and the Royal College of Music where his student nights
were devoted to raving to hardcore and jungle at Telepathy and Raindance. In that same
diverse and contrasting spirit Matt went on to combine his skills as a studio engineer
with string arranging; song writing with DJing; and the sophistication of classical
composition with the raw energy of bass-powered sound systems which has brought him to
where he is today.

Matt is not only urban legend and pioneer of the UK garage scene, but a definitive sound
artist who is just as at home honing beats with hip hop head Rodney P as he is
collaborating with renowned percussionist Evelyn Glennie. Collaborations and remix work
with Jill Scott, Tom Jones and Mariah Carey are not only flavourful additions to MJs long
catalogue of acclaimed productions but a true testament to his talent. Perhaps thats
why he has vast more collaborations forthcoming, including one with Jocelyn Brown.

MJ Cole has DJed across the globe and has seen his gig list grow and grow. With regular
visits to Australia, Japan, the U.S. and Europe his eclectic sound continues to win more
and more fans. With a vast array of talented vocalists at his side, and a deep
understanding for music as a whole, MJ Cole is the summation of musical excellence.


Loefah is without a doubt a bastion of dubstep. His contributions to the DMZ imprint could
be considered key moments in the evolution of the genre; whilst his remixes for Skream (on
Tempa) and his recent Tectonic outing only serve to enforce this belief.

Unlike other producers, Loefah's bass excursions don't venture into the wibbly wobbly
sub-aquatic realms. Instead they attempt to shatter the listener's rib cage with
frequencies that could be used by French riot police.


Coki is one part of Digital Mystikz, a dubstep production duo, the other half being Mala,
from the South London suburb of Norwood. Coki's renowned for his backseat low profile
persona and his wielding of massive bassiness. Along with Loefah, Coki and Mala operate
the DMZ record label and host the influential bimonthly nightclub DMZ, held at the Mass
club complex in Brixton, London. Their song "Anti War Dub" appeared in the 2006 film
"Children of Men," although it wasn't included in the soundtrack.


Get set for the Garage and Dubstep event of the year featuring the legendary Godfather of
Garage, MJ Cole, and Dubstep badman Coki, as they join the most popular Dubstep DJ to have
ever played in Sydney, Loefah, and our own Farj & Paul of Garage Pressure/Aquatic Lab

Full Hijack sound system, creative visuals and lighting plus stupidly cheap drinks
alongside VJ Echo Storm.

Vodka & Redball discounts throughout the night.
