SMASH HIFI (Feat Leeroy From The Prodigy!)

SMASH HIFI is the story of Leeroy Thornhill (The Prodigy) and Marten Horger and their common love for everything fat, wild and unique! Buzzing with the sound of Breaks, Bass, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass and everything in between they have become well known to bring that exact attitude to their out genre jumping SMASH HIFI DJ Sets at clubs and festivals throughout Europe.

Now, straight off the back of the release of their acclaimed debut album ‘Order More Disorder’ and a signing to Sony BMG they announce the launch of a brand new live show that will see them take their incendiary sounds to the stage via hardwired hardware and fired up MC’s and vocalist

TAXMAN — Playaz

Taxman was first introduced to Drum n Bass/Jungle by his brother, Adam, who would record late night shows of the infamous 'One In The Jungle' on Radio 1. He was instantly hooked by the sounds of the fast-paced breakbeats,strange sci-fi melodys and the heavy basslines of this new music. He then soon began to learn how to mix on his brothers turntables and soon developed a strong love for both the music and the art of mixing.

Taxman moved to the city of Newcastle at the age of 16, where he enroled at a music production college, only to leave a few months later. His learning of production was not at a college, but in his brothers and friends studio. He would sit there for hours, watching, listening, asking questions, slowly learning the new technology, and then soon bought his own equipment.

After a few years and many late nights in front of his own computer, Taxman finally created his first piece of work that he was satisfied with. It was burned onto CD and sent to the now recognised producers, G Dub, who were instantly impressed and the tune was signed to G Dubs new label, Propaganda Recordings: The Sci-Fi slab of bass-driven pressure, The Rebate, released in 2003, was instantly recognised by all of the main players in the scene and recieved radio play on Grooveriders Radio1 show.

But it was when G Dub invited Taxman to Leicester for a co-lab project, Warp Speed was written, and a few weeks later, Taxman was signed to Hype and Pascals True Playaz label, one of the biggest labels in the sceen. His first solo release for the label was the massive Too Bad, which hit the Number 1 spot in every DnB chart in the UK, and went onto to be the biggest selling single for the True Playaz camp in 2006.

Taxman has now fully established his self in the Drum and Bass scene, and as a part of Hypes new imprint «Real Playaz» with classics such as, Evasion Remix, Konkrete Shoes, My House and so on.
