Outlook Festival Official Launch Party in Hong Kong
This Saturday, “The Mighty Dispatch”: Ant TC1 returns to Hong Kong. The sound of Dispatch has changed so much along the way with signings like: Need for Mirrors, Silent Witness, Dub Phizix, Survival, DLR and others. It’s definitely one of the labels that is leading the way of DnB nowadays. Huge Respect! The wait for a real good night of drum and bass is soon over! Respect to Magnetic Soul for having TC1 back in HK for the 3rd time!
喜歡DRUM AND BASS既朋友應該對近年越戰越勇既DISPATCH RECORDINGS唔會陌生, DISPATCH RECORDING 主理人ANT TC1將會係今次HEADLINE之一! 剛從泰國同印度返英國既佢更會去馬來西亞,廣州, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide演出!
Ant TC1 along with Hidden Agenda founded Dispatch Recordings back in 2001, Ant originally helped out with the management side of the label before finding his feet within the realms of production; which was a natural progression for him having DJ’d on pirate radio and in clubs from the age of 15 (since 1993). His first release along side frequent studio partner Stress Level appeared on Dispatch after almost 3 years of hard work getting their collective sound where they felt it needed to be in the studio before even thinking about turning on the DAT recorder. After their first release aired they quickly picked up a wealth of dj support on their early material and went on to release for a who’s who list of established Drum & Bass record labels including the likes of Renegade, CIA, Advanced, Critical Records Integral, Liquid V, Commercial Suicide, Good Looking Records, Bingo beats and Samurai Music. By demand remix work started to feature heavily within their output and the duo went on to remix for the likes of Hidden Agenda, Chris SU, Artificial Intelligence, Kabuki, Total Science, Optical & Ryme Time (Jagged Edge), Atlantic Connection, Tactile & DJ Marky.
Ant’s production output has featured on a mass of compilations and mix cd’s compiled by the likes of Shy FX, LTJ Bukem, Total Science, AI, Spectrasoul, Klute and Brian G. Additionally his work has featured very heavily within the radio shows of Grooverider and Fabio on their respective BBC Radio 1 slots over the years as well as BBC 1Xtra where Ant once hosted his own one-off 4 hour show as well as also twice appearing as a guest on DJ Flights weekly session. His DJ work has seen him play all over the globe from Adelaide to Los Angeles, from Hong Kong to Budapest, Tel-Aviv to Bangkok and last but by no means least regularly UK wide.
Fast forward to 2011 and Ant is now solely responsible for the running & label manager role of Dispatch Recordings; having released a mix CD compilation, the hugely successful “Transit One” album (which topped almost all the usual stores weekly dance music sales charts across all formats) as well as a fine list of consistently quality single and EP releases from the likes of Survival, Break, MC System, Commix, AI, Chris SU, Zero T, Octane & DLR, Cern, Dabs, Skeptical, Spinline, himself (and many more). Ant will also be appearing on remix duties for the likes of Lomax (Loadstar), Sunchase, Cern & Dabs in the near future on other labels as well as Dispatch and continues to run his own monthly night at ‘Momentum’ in Leeds (which is now in its 9th year) as well as dj’ing continuously across the globe at an ever expanding rate.
