Elementary School. That's my sons school :)

Djs are as follows....


London based Chris and Nicky are better known as nu skool production
duo Screwface. Signed to Hardcore beats since 2005, this pair are fast
gaining a reputation for delivering breakbeat anthems with their
releases. Screwface came storming onto the breakbeat scene in April
last year with their first release 'King of the bongo' which was
instantly snapped up by all the breakbeat A-listers, and still holds a
firm place in their boxes today, proving that Screwface productions
can hold the test of time, and setting a precedent for things to come.
Since then Screwface have been associated with some of the most highly
regarded acts in the scene, and have proved to have serious chemistry
with artists such as The Autobots, after having three singles
together, including anthems such as 'Apocalypse' and 'Burn' featuring
the legendary MC Navigator. Nicky Screwface has formed one third of
the all female trio Broadbeats who have caused a serious stir this
year with their first HB release 'Crossfire/Soul Jah'. They have also
developed a formidable force in pairing up to write with rising stars
Ctrl-Z. With tunes such as Kung Fu Funk and Stereo: Typical, they are
consistently pushing the envelope and challenging the way people
perceive the breakbeat sound. Screwface have also earned their stripes
by their own merits with releases such as 'Phat Bass/Monte' which went
on to be the biggest selling Hardcore Beats Release of 2005 and 'The
day the earth stood still' from the label's recent Hardwired album
(also mixed by Ctrl-Z and Screwface) which is receiving widespread
critical acclaim and support from some of the biggest players in
breakbeat. This support doesn't end here either, Screwface have had
their tracks commissioned by artists such as Freq Nasty for his 2006
Breakspoll cd, as well as gaining serious amounts of airtime on radio
including heavy rotation on BBC Radio1 from DJ's including Zane Lowe
and Annie Nightingale. Needless to say the pair gain full DJ support
from the breakbeat elite and even from DJ legends such as Fatboy Slim,
who closed his set to 30,000 people at global gathering 2006 with
'Burn'. Their success in production has also led Screwface to
headlining gigs all around the UK and Europe and also to the USA,
where they continually show they can seriously rock a party. The
future looks very bright for Screwface as they continue to rise
through the ranks with no sign of stopping.


Ctrl Z are a Nu Skool Breakz production duo hailing from London. Tom
Petais and Nicky D'Silva aka Dash and Inch met through the Community
Music Program in London. The pairing up of these two DJs by their
tutor was to be the start of something special and their first Ctrl Z
Production was unleashed. Snapped up by Dj Mutinys Funkatech
Recordings, Disko' and 'Pain made up the debut single that was to
cause a big splash in the Breaks Scene. Straight to number 1 in the
Mixmag Chart and straight into the boxes of the Breakbeat elite this
dancefloor bomb paved the way for the duo. Now with 20 releases and
remixes under their belts on respected labels such as 777, Hardcore
beats and Rat Records, it is no surprise that after only a year in
business, Ctrl Z had the honor of receiving two nominations for Best
Breakthrough Act and Best Breakthrough Producer at the 2005 Breakspoll
Awards. Dash & Inch are receiving praise and support from some of the
biggest players in the scene: Freq Nasty commissioned no less than
Three Ctrl-Z tracks for his latest compilation Cd, while the
Freestylers requested not only a Ctrl Z remix on their album, but a
collaboration with themselves too! The list also includes
collaborations with Breakbeat Stalwarts Tayo and the Autobots. Their
DJ sets have to be seen to be believed, headlining Events all over the
UK and Europe, Ctrl Z have crossed the Atlantic for two successful
tours of the States and will be spreading their unmistakable sound
even further over the next year. As well as regular gigs, Ctrl Z can
be heard smashing up the airwaves on the Double Award Winning station:
Pyrotechnic Radio.
