FEATURECAST: One of the success stories of the Southampton dance scene, Featurecast (Lee Mintram) has been a favourite amongst our regulars for many years now. An outstanding DJ and tune selector, his scratching skills will blow your mind. After many years of producing singles and working with some of breakbeats biggest players, Featurecast launched his debut solo album this month, titled Run For Cover. An LP full of his own funky productions it’s received rave reviews by critics and is a sure fire dance floor hit. Featurecast is the leader of the Ghetto Funk scene, commanding thousands of supporters across the globe, and selling out stadium gigs in Canada, Australia & Brazil.

Nominated annually at the Breakspoll Awards for ‘Best Producer’, he’s created a unique Featurecast sound. Whether it be his own productions, or cheeky DIY bootlegs, he storms download charts with every release. Things looked good from the outset in his production career as his ‘Channel Surfing’ single was snapped up to be used on the Apple iPod TV advert. Most recently Featurecast topped the Juno charts with his ‘Avenue Rock’ bootleg which received rave reviews. He’s also collaborated with some of the scenes big hitters, including Krafty Kuts & A.Skillz.

B-SIDE: A young man who is taking the breaks world by storm, B-Side (Ben Owens) is making major inroads into the world of bass and breaks. We’re proud to have him as a resident, you really are lucky people!!
Having been involved in the music scene since an early age, he entered the dance music world back in 2000 as a drummer for Southamptons very own Surreal Madrid. This saw him perform alongside acts such as Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, Bentley Rhythm Ace and Layo & Bushwacka!

It wasn’t long before he caught the DJ bug and he hasn’t looked back since. A regular here at Orange Rooms (AAA/Quids In), B-Side has also held residencies at Rhino and Mono, playing alongside such heavyweights as Jaguar Skills, Stanton Warriors, Plump DJs, A-Skillz & Krafty Kuts.

B-Side is now gaining the recognition he deserves following a move to the big smoke, with appearances at the Breakspoll Awards, and a debut appearance at the world famous Fabric alongside Ali B. This summer he’s had a hectic festival season, appearing at the recent Boomtown event & Sunrise festival, as well as a number of international gigs. His productions are going from strength-to-strength, with a host of top 5 releases in the Juno Download charts for Ghetto Funk and Radical Mix Tape. He’s also recently released his own Loop Masters Sample Package. This boy is gonna be huge, you saw him here first!
