META presents HALOGENIX
Annie's Attic Southend's Alternative Music Venue Market Place, Southend-on-Sea, Market Place, SS11 Southend-on-Sea, United Kingdom
META is a brand new dance music event representing the deepest corners of the world of Drum & Bass and it's ilk!
Comprised of a team of talented up & coming Producers & vocalists, every event that META churns out will be full of exclusive and exciting music, as well as the most forward thinking future sounds currently available.
But that's not all, as every night will be headlined by Artists at the forefront of the underground music industry, and we are more than excited to be able to announce that we will be launching with the hyper talented HALOGENIX!
Progressive talent Halogenix has swiftly scaled the ranks in recent
years to find himself on the leadingedge of innovative drum and
bass music. His background as a classically trained musician
combined with an ear for a vast range of sonic influences has
manifested in the distinctive productions that you hear today.
The adept North Londoner broke in 2011 with the clinical vigor of
‘Halcyon Daze’; a Hydro collaboration for underground
heavyweights Horizons Recordings on Dream Thief 2 EP. The pair
continued to play with their formula with the foreboding minimal tech
of 12” ‘Trieste / Disillusioned’, before Halogenix appeared on
Noisia’s imprint for breakthrough experimentations, Invisible, with
’Askari’ on Invisible EP 4, alongside future partners Sabre and
Stray; all of which gaining airplay across the DJ circuit and a
fostering a following straight off the back.
The game opened up for Halogenix when the versatile producer
teamed back up with Sabre and Stray in 2012 to formulate the
indelible Ivy Lab; composing arguably the most celebrated tune of
the year, ‘Oblique’; gaining the traction to secure acclaim from both
the scene’s biggest tastemakers and scores of new fans. Calibrated
by a shared ethos and a proclivity for the outer stretches of the
genre and beyond; the unique trio, signed to Kasra’s Critical Music,
have gone on to relish huge success with the releases ‘Missing
Persons EP’ and most recently ’20 Questions EP’ with their eclectic
brand of silky smooth rollers, ultraclean tech and crunching glitch
Aside his formidable collaborative projects, Halogenix’s solo outings
have ascended the echelons of drum and bass; lending his futuristic
sound palette to scene proponents Dispatch Recordings with the
rolling ‘Take The Lead EP’, Critical Music once again with ‘Systems
001’ and in 2015 with the classy ‘All Blue EP’ on Metalheadz.
Halogenix’s aptitude for DJing is also clearly evident, bringing
energy and class to each lineup he appears on. Playing at Fabric’s
Critical Sound shows and the bassfusion 20/20 events as one part
of Ivy Lab; he also displays his individual finesse featuring on
lineups for Metalheadz, Ingredients Records and as a host of the
Critical Sound show on Londons Rinse FM.
Alongside this absolute don will be an array of support supplied by META residents who are active members of the industry all pushing there own take on underground Drum & Bass in its own right.
