Black Sun Empire
Black Sun Empire is a trio of Dutch disc jockeys and drum & bass music producers. The group consists of Rene Verdult and brothers Milan and Micha Heyboer.
Based out of Utrecht, Netherlands, they started making Drum & Bass in 1995 when they turned to the likes of artists such as Photek, LTJ Bukem, and Ed Rush. After having a few releases on smaller record labels, they managed to get the attention of bigger producers like DJ Trace, currently known for his DSCI4 record label. They have four labels of their own: Black Sun Empire Recordings.

A true DJ at heart with many years experience under his belt, Dutch DJ/producer Nymfo has recently been making waves with his skills in the studio as well as on the decks. Standout singles for Commercial Suicide and Critical Modulations have made his name synonymous with tough, techno-tinged dancefloor drum & bass, adding to a reputation built at his own nights Red Zone and Breek in Eindhoven. Now in 2011 he’s pushing his sound further with releases set for Commercial Suicide and Metalheadz as well as further collaborations with Black Sun Empire, Klute and S.P.Y

Ordure is a collaboration between Dutch music producers Jesse de Rooy and Jelle Geus. They started out as a featuring project on a hangover sunday in May 2010. They produce music ranging from Neuro/Glitch Hop, Dubstep to DnB and other bass related music.
Since the eruption of PYTHIUS into the drum and bass sphere with his ABANDON EP on BLACKOUT MUSIC NL and performances such as his now legendary breakout decimation of the Blackout label stage at Let It Roll festival, his rise to dizzy heights in the scene’s community of creators has been exemplary. Now, following the release of his debut DESCEND LP on Blackout, he has cemented his place in the history of the genre whilst demonstrating his adaptive abilities in unleashing the diverse forms of heavy genres that the LP holds. Pythius started out as many producers do, with his early days dominated by live performances with bands as a drummer and a focus on rock and metal. His desire to build more than complex percussive structures and realise full compositions led to starting to produce, compiling his many influences across trance, techno, metal and particularly the early 2000 era of tech-fuelled drum and bass from the likes of BSE, Konflict, C4C, Vicious Circle and Concord Dawn and finding his unique euphoric and weighty sound on this journey. His respect for melody and musical components continuously comes through alongside the powerful dirt that often provides the foundation of his creations, and further experimentations in other genres such as synthwave, techno and metal will almost certainly emerge in future. A coincidental connection with Black Sun Empire in Utrecht led to music and ideas being shared, and invitations to play at blackout nights soon evolved into an invitation to release on their seminal Blackout label, with the anthemic AIR RAID getting released on his debut ABANDON EP. Further releases on Blackout followed, with the NEW ORDER and HERESY Eps and his remix of TELEKINESIS ft. COPPA’s track FIGHT CLUB laying an immaculate trail of aural carnage at raves everywhere, as well as his remix of Cause4Concern’s track MOONGERM and original single BATTLECRUISER on the C4C RECORDINGS imprint. With live shows at some of the biggest drum & bass events in the world behind him, including Let It Roll, Sziget, Pirate Station and Animalz, as well as ongoing support from some of the scene’s biggest names such as Black Sun Empire, Noisia, Ed Rush, Audio, The Prototypes, The Upbeats and Dirtyphonics – PYTHIUS is a creator and performer with deep support in the areas that matter, matched with an array of profoundly impactful releases. Expect a future with his name starkly embedded in its history.

Mr. Multiplex is a truly unique MC, a diverse lyrical cannon who is guaranteed to make every crowd bounce. His background as a punk/rock singer and his knowledge of DnB and Jungle music means he has the ability to adapt to every performance. The Dutch squatting scene was the gateway for Mr. Multiplex. He found himself at an illegal rave where he met and danced with miss Jungle for the first time and fell in love. This inspiration led to organize a party with friends called ‘Cultural Evolution’ - which was an immediate hit. This event fused with ‘Utreg Massive’ where Mr. Multiplex ended up working with Chakra MC. From that moment on, Mr.Multiplex started his quest to be the best artist he could possibly be, challenging and pushing himself every time he performs.
After playing in almost every big venue in the Netherlands from his base in Utrecht, he met Black Sun Empire who chose to make Mr. Multiplex their resident MC for ‘Blackout.’ Mr. Multiplex has since held down many more residencies including; Kaputt! (NL), Vandal Crew (FR), Korsakov (NL), Cheeky Monday (NL), NoizeSuppressor (IT) & Roots (UK).
After these first residencies things accelerated for Mr. Multiplex and within the next few years he MCed with names like Andy C (UK), Noisia (NL) Aphrodite dj (UK), Mefjus dj (UK), Iciclemusic(UK) & CongoNatty(UK). To name a few highlights of his career so far was playing at Lowlands in 2013 in front 15.000 people and to 85,000 people at Dominator Festival in 2016. Since the birth of his MC career in 2004, he stays focused on innovating his technique and keeping up the work rate. In many ways, things have only just begun for this multi-talented, multi-genre, Mr. Multiplex!
