Drill Team and DetroitDubstep.com presents
EMALKAY (Boka, Dub Police) UK
...Dubstep producer Emalkay is one of the most exciting talents to emerge on the scene in recent times, and is certainly one to watch out for in 2010.
2009 saw the Birmingham based producer rise to prominence with the newly voted best dubstep track of the year ‘When I Look at You’, which was not only supported by the scene’s biggest DJs, it was chosen as single of the week by BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, 1Xtra’s MistaJam and the Guardian newspaper. Emalkay however, not content with producing one of the biggest underground anthems of the year, was also busy remixing tracks for the likes of Faithless, Miike Snow, Freeland, BBE, and most recently, drum and bass heavyweights Pendulum.
With a fresh release out on Storming Productions, and an album in the pipeline, Emalkay is well on his way to cementing his place as one of dubstep’s finest producers and DJs, playing events all over the world, including this years Glastonbury.

MARK INSTINCT:(Rottun, Formation, Dubline) Calgary, CAN
Mark Instinct was always into the sounds of electronic music, but it wasn't until his introduction to drum and bass, at the age of seventeen, that he decided it was time to add his own mark on music. With impeccable taste and skill sets, early bookings with Hive, Pendulum, Noisia and Tech Itch started to gain him recognition in bass circles around Western Canada.
At the age of 20 years old, when Mark Instinct started experimenting with music production, he finally found his niche. Beginning with drum and bass, and dabbling in other genres, such as house, it was the grimy stripped down sounds of dubstep that ultimately caught his attention. Creating dark nasty beats, synonymous with the Western Canadian sound, Mark Instinct soon began to chisel out his own distinctive style imprinted on releases ╥Sketchy Maxx╙ and ╥Fword╙.
Attention from record labels Rottun, Dubline and Aufect recordingss lead to the release of ╥Invader╙ and ╥Badman Sound╙ in 2009, tracks which were soon found on the top-ten playlists of many international DJ. Forthcoming "Destroyed" and storming "15 Karat EP" are slated for release in early-mid 2010. Additionally, tracks released on Betamorph Recordings ╥The Humunaoid EP╙ & Aufect Digital's "Love me Nots" release were featured in the top ten charts of Juno, Chemical Records, & Digital Tunes.
Ascending the steep slope of music with ease, this 23 year old is proving that 2010 will be no different. Appearances alongside dubstep╒s biggest names, a hectic tour schedule which include an appearance at Winter Music Conference World of Drum and Bass, remixes and collaborations with Downlink, Symbl, Ale Fillman, and releases on Play Me, ╥Trill Bass Recordings╙, and DJ SS╒ ╥Formation Records it comes as no surprise that Mark Instinct will continue pushing musical boundaries. With tight mixing skills that have been instilled from drum and bass, melody lines of genuine electronic musicality and the dirty sub and mid range bass that could only be contained by dubstep Mark Instinct is this decades artist to watch.
