http://www.kraftykuts.com/ http://www.facebook.com/OfficialASkillz http://dynamitemc.com/ Krafty Kuts So far in a glittering career he has gained dance music’s top accolades including Best International DJ at the Australian Dance Music Awards, Breakspoll’s Face of Breaks 2003 and Best Breaks DJ at the M8 Ibiza awards 2006, in only his first year as a resident on the white isle. A stunning haul at Breakspoll 2007 saw him claiming Best Album for his debut long player ‘Freakshow’, Best DJ for a record third consecutive year and to cap it off, the richly deserved Outstanding Contribution to Breakbeat award that acknowledged his long journey to the acme of club culture. Inspired by the hip-hop and electro sounds that were rocking his world, Martin first stepped behind a pair of decks when he entered a DJ competition and incredibly, as a complete novice, he made it all the way to the final. With his love affair for the wheels of steel well and truly cemented, Krafty Kuts set about learning his art, perfecting the cutting and scratching that was to become the core of his DJ sets. A.Skillz His incredible deck talents involve fusing funk, hip-hop and breaks with his unique style of scratching and mixing. His reputation as a true party rocker has won him prime-time slots across the UK at FabricLive, Spectrum, Chew The Fat, Supercharged, The Boutique and Sugarbeat as well as gigs around the world at major events, festivals and music industry parties such as The Hit Factory (New York), WMC (Miami) and Field Day (Sydney) Dynamite MC The magnetic brilliance of front man Dynamite MC began developing with his childhood influences spanning early Motown, and reggae. Later drawn to fledgling hip hop and house clubs, by the time rave and drum & bass broke he was already deeply absorbed by the scene. Initially harbouring ambitions to be a DJ, Dynamite discovered he couldn’t afford an early set of turntables and opted for the next best thing. A natural on the mic, he was already a jobbing MC when he met Roni Size and Krust in a club in ’93. Impressed by the way in which Dynamite captured the attention of the crowd, Size asked him to accompany some early DJ sets and Dynamite rapidly became a regular with the Full Cycle DJs on their nocturnal turntable exploits. Immediately convincing as a front man, he slipped into the mix like a third turntable, hyping the crowds and elevating the already unique sonic experience with his lyrics and rhymes.
