ANT TC1 (Dispatch Recordings/Metalheadz)


PreSale Ticket: Rp. 200.000 at
OnTheSpot Ticket: Rp. 300.000 for 4 area


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 14
(since 1992). His first release alongside frequent production partner Stress Level appeared on Dispatch after almost 3 years of hard work getting their collective sound where they felt it needed to be before even thinking about turning on a DAT recorder. After their first release hit the stores they quickly picked up a wealth of DJ support across 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. Branching out and working with other
producers such as Survival & DLR has only furthered experience Ant’s skills at the controls over the years, Ant has also released
his own solo material more recently on top of remixing for the likes of Lomax on Integral Records. In 2014 Ant realised a lifetime ambition, securing his first ever release for the legendary Metalheadz label “Hungry For Atmosphere” alongside
Mako, DLR & Villem.

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 Friction, Grooverider, Fabio Goldie & Bailey 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, he has since additionally made 2 guest appearance for DJ Friction on his Radio 1 show. His DJ’ing work has seen him play all over the globe from Adelaide to Los Angeles, from Hong Kong to Sarajevo, Tel-Aviv to Bangkok and last but by no means least regularly UK and EU wide.

Fast forward to 2015 and Ant is now responsible for the label management roles of both Metalheadz & Dispatch Recordings. Having released a compilation series on Dispatch, the hugely successful “Transit One” & “Transit Two” albums (topping almost all the usual stores weekly dance music sales charts across all formats), the label features a fine list of consistently
quality single and EP releases from the likes of DLR, Break, Survival & Silent Witness, Marcus Intalex, Klute, Nymfo, AI, Zero T, Cern, Dabs, Skeptical, Dub Phizix, himself (and many more). Ant has recently remixed material for the likes of Cern & Dabs, Sunchase, Quadrant & Iris, Friske as well as having his own solo work remixed by Xtrah along with working on further collabs with the likes of Survival & DLR. Ant is also the head of Artist
Management at both Outlook & Dimensions Festivals, playing a pivotal role in bringing consistently strong Drum & Bass acts to the Croatia every year, earning back to back 2013 & 2014 “Best Festival” accolades in both the Festival Awards & the Drum & Bass Arena annual awards.

Lets dance like nobody’s watching!


You know Calculon. His gargantuan beats have been destroying dancefloors for a decade, pushing the envelope at jungle, juke, and hardcore parties around the globe. Classic tracks like “Larchmont,” “Back the Fuck Up,” and his recent stormer “Fierce” with Shamanga & Austin Speed have been cained on BBC Radio 1, RinseFM, and by dance music dons like Rockwell, Om Unit, Toddla T, and Digital, while his labels Rubik and Shoot Recordings are continually on the cutting edge of uptempo sounds. Shit, he’s rocked from Tokyo to Fabric in London, but who is Calculon really? How did this handsome California lad become such a motherfucking behemoth of bassmusic murder? Why do A-list producers line up to work with dude? And where in the hell is he taking dancefloors next? Let’s be straight: you may think you know Calculon, but you haven’t seen nothing yet.

Furthermore, he had launched a label Take Off Records with the compilation album “EXTENDED” & re:locate Asia Tour in 2007. One of the masterpieces in 2009, he found Choons Awards “the first & prestigious dance music awards in Malaysia” and aims to push the boundaries of high quality local production and encourage more talents to step in to studio work with the aim of pushing Malaysians out into the international circuit.

Besides organising & spinning in his events, DJ Low was invited to play at numbers of local parties. One of his favourites is world famous CREAM LIVE @ Genting Highlands.
