Raxyor aka Jeffrey Penton, hailing from New York, He began to experiment with electronic music back in 1999 Producing electronic noise, which landed him a few gigs local New York and in Canada. About 2005 Raxyor stepped beyond the realm of “inspired” and in to the kingdom of inspired genius. Raxyor kicks out intricate, complex beats arrayed in fashions which you cannot predict any more than you help enjoying. He describes his style as “Hyper Jungle, Splatter, Rave’n’Bass fused with Classic Dubstep and D&B roots. ” There are two musicians whose work has surprised, delighted and amazed me at every turn: Mozart and Raxyor. The former is dead. The latter has contributed to a dozen albums released by ten record labels over the past five years With Rancorous Records his main Label from NY, Meganeural, Illphabetik, Yomi, Day Of The Droids, Auricle Media, Hive Records, No-FI Studios, Apogsasis and more!
After a couple extensive years of touring in Europe and the UK, Constantly working to further experiment and improve his production skills, Raxyor has been able to stand miles apart from most of the crowd and really push the sonic boundaries of drum and bass fused with hyper jungle and seasoned well with ballistc bass lines. Switching from razor sharp editing to wild splattered destruction, Raxyor takes a serious and deadly approach to his work.
Raxyor made his debut appearance at The Lucky Cat in Brooklyn NYC w/ Xanopticon and Slutmachine. Since then he has performed in Canada, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Germany, the Ukraine, Norway, Scotland, Lithuania, Spain and various cities around the United States.
Playing alongside some of the best in the underground Raxyor has proven to the masses why he has been put on some of the best line ups across the world, sharing the stage with Otto Von Schirach, Luke Vibert, Ebola, DJ Hidden, Rotator, DJ Scotch Egg, Enduser and many more!.
Babyshaker is a producer from deep in the scottish countryside. With very little else to do other than accidentally run over
rabbits with his car he started producing in 2004. His sound ranges all the way from the deepest dubstep through to a raging side of jungle rarley heard and all the way out to some of the hardest breakcore sounds around. More recently has been focusing on more dancfloor friendly bangers: “Im becoming mroe interested in making people move with me than want to mvoe away from me”. Babyshaker’s live performances involve slick mixing of original material, large amounts of FX manipulation using home made Reaktor algorhythms and even larger amounts of eardrum abuse and full on improvised mashups – anything goes. Babyshaker has been playing shows and wrecking audiences for a number of years now, he has played all throughout europe and beyond, and has shared the stage with acts such as Xanopticon,
Bong Ra, Ebola, Ladyscraper, Pisstank, FFF and Duran Duran Duran. Babyshaker has released on Rancorous Records,
OXO-Unlimited, Ideation Records and also runs Meganeural Records with Hoonboy.
