J Melodic is a UK based Dj and Producer. He started DJing back in 95 playing DnB and Uk Garage/Soulful House. After practising his DJ skills for five years, J Melodic naturally progressed in producing DnB/soulful House and other genres in 2000.

Esc alias Juha Riipinen is a DJ/Producer hailing from Tampere, Finland. This guy has been fiddling with music since he was a kid. Esc has explored various styles from punk to techno but after hearing Super Sharp Shooter and Square Off at the mid-90′s, there has not been a question though, what music he loves the best.
Since late 90′s Esc has contributed to the scene also as a DJ. In the year 2000 he co-founded the first ever weekly d&b club in Finland with DJ Beyond from Kongocrew and has later played at various clubs and events with the likes of Seba, Noisia, Loxy, Sabre and SpectraSoul to name but a few. Esc is also part of the Pressure cru which runs Pressure, one of the longest standing d&b clubs in Finland.
I’ve been producing, DJ’ing and arranging dnb events with Esc for years now. This 2010 VIP of Esc’s classic Kongo Tune is made for the celebration of the 10 years of Kongocrew! Hope you enjoy it. I’m gonna play the track for sure next friday at the party!
ESC – LOST AND FOUND + MINERAL REMIX FORTHCOMING ON IDJ
I’m happy to announce that Esc’s track Lost And Found will be shortly out on Indajungle recordings with my remix of the track.
Personally, the years with Kongocrew mean a lot to me and I’ve had the time of my life with the crew. Now it’s time to celebrate the successful years and spin all the greatest tracks next Friday at the Cut club @ Tampere Yo-talo.
Oh yes, another Free Track of The Week is up: “Trisector & InZtance – Something to Give”. This is a really marvellous track that I’ve been listening to a lot lately. Listen & download below:

Trisector aka Otto Hassinen (Sciencehki) was inspired by music from an early age, and he has been around in the Finnish DnB scene for quite some time. I remember listening to his tracks already around the year 2000 on the Finnish radiostation Radiomafia by DJ Dizzy – I’ve been a big fan for a long time and I’ve been playing his tracks a lot in my DJ sets too. Trisector tracks are some real dancefloor mayhems, I’m telling ya!
Lately Trisector has really succeeded in making his sound known around the world with DJ support from names like Blu Mar Ten, ASC, Muffler, Physics, Resound, London Elektricity, Survival, S.P.Y, Kasra, Loxy, Mutated Forms and Chris SU among others. He has releases under Med School, Botchit, Destructive and Urban Graffiti, to mention a few. So we’re talking about a big junglist/breakbeat head here! Over 1000 Trisector facebook -fans can’t be wrong.
Trisector is also busy running a monthly night called Science in his hometown Helsinki. Last year I was invited to play there too, and I loved the party. Also, there’s plenty of high quality Science podcasts available at the Science page: www.sciencehki.net
