'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from SUB PROVIDER - January 29, 2020





On WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29th, STUNNA closes out the month of programs with another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. In this week's session, we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from seasoned DRUM+BASS selector and tastemaker SUB PROVIDER.

FRENCH-based artist SUB PROVIDER (aka GAETAN/GUY) began his career in electronic music in 1994 with his initial introduction to the sounds of TECHNO. Based in ANNECY, he was exposed to his first rave parties, and the wide spectrum of music there led him to discover seminal sounds of JUNGLE music as championed by the likes of GROOVERIDER, FABIO, and DJ HYPE. Relocating to the metropolis of PARIS in 1995, he found work at the TV station CANAL+ for their 'LA GRANDE FAMILLE' show, and ultimately helped to incorporate the burgeoning sounds of DRUM+BASS into their programming. Returning back to ANNECY in 1996, he learned to program on the CUBASE sequencer and joined forces with another producer to form a live TECHNO act named SUBJUNCTION. With an irresistible drive to create and perform music, he also founded the DRUM+BASS act JUNCTION 14 and signed the 'PARADOXAL PHAZE' EP to INTERZONE RECORDS in 1998. Continuing to write and perform during the remainder of the 1990s, GAETAN dabbled in a number of various live music and DJ projects. After a brief hiatus from the music scene, 2008 saw him reemerge under the 'NEON DEPT' guise, and upon his return to PARIS in 2012, he quickly fell in love with the enthralling sounds of LIQUID FUNK and began performing under the 'SUB PROVIDER' name in 2012.

With a flurry of online radio residencies and guest mixes under his belt, SUB PROVIDER currently curates the "FRENCH CONNECTION" mix series for the DIFFERNT DRUMZ site. Dedicated to showcase music from the large stable of talented producers from his homeland of FRANCE, SUB PROVIDER and his like-minded crew of DJs and producers continue to spread the gospel of quality DRUM+BASS to listeners worldwide.

Join us this edition of 'THE GREENROOM' as SUB PROVIDER presents an exclusive guest set crafted especially for this week's broadcast. Tune in!

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from MADCAP - January 22, 2020





On WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22nd, STUNNA moves deeper into the month of programming in 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio with an exclusive guest mix from talented producer and DJ MADCAP during this week's session.

UK-based MADCAP (aka ELLIOT PAYNE) began his DJ career in the early 1990s. As the son of a ROCK N' ROLL musician father and piano teaching mother, he was exposed to music from an early age. Being so young was a stumbling block at first, but this changed in the summer of 1995 when he secured a job at local record shop BUZZ RECORDS in HIGH WYCOMBE. This was associated with DJ PULSE and the influential CREATIVE WAX label. Meeting with punters and promoters alike, MADCAP soon found himself being booked up and down the UK for sets, including the infamous SANCTUARY in MILTON KEYNES. One particular highlight of his DJ career so far was winning the MOEVEMENT/TECHNICS DJ competition in 2002 at LONDON's THE END nightclub, as featured in DJ MAG, resulting in several bookings for MOVEMENT at BAR RUMBA and across LONDON. Other notable features on MADCAP include his appearance in THE WEST COUNTRY'S IDJ MAGAZINE in JANUARY 2004 after winning "MIXTAPE OF THE MONTH." The competitions certainly helped and has continued to earn him bookings throughout the UK, and he's also held several long-term residencies in AYLESBURY, BIRMINGHAM, LONDON and OXFORD.

Since 2006, MADCAP has had a string of releases on labels such as GOOD LOOKING RECORDS, MAC II, FOKUZ, CELSIUS, RENEGADE RECORDINGS, SOUL DEEP, CREATIVE WAX and SMOOTH N GROOVE. He has remixed tracks for LTJ BUKEM, NOOKIE/CLOUD 9, TOM & JERRY (aka 4 HERO), and DJ MONITA. This includes CLOUD 9's MOVING SHADOW classic "YOU GOT ME BURNING UP" and NOOKIE's REINFORCED release "A DRUM, A BASS & A PIANO," and, more recently, a remix alongside DJ PULSE of 'FINAL CONFLICT" by THE COMMITTEE on the CREATIVE WAX imprint. Recent releases include "CARBON" on LIQUID V, THE VIBEZ '93 red vinyl project on FOKUZ, and the 'TRANQUILITY' EP on SMOOTH N GROOVE. Forthcoming releases with the late, great ANDY SKOPES (rest in peace) on DISPATCH, including the track "TROUBLE" featuring SINGING FATS, a three track vinyl release on MAKO's UTOPIA MUSIC, a 10" vinyl project with STRETCH's AKO BEATZ, and a 12" vinyl on RANDALL's MAC II label.

CREATIVE WAX, co-run by MADCAP alongside old friend DJ PULSE, was relaunched back in 2013 and together they have released several new tracks, select back cataloque on vinyl, new and retro merchandise as well. Other recent studio projects include working with artists such as FURNEY, DIGITAL, PAUL SG, SOUL STRUCTURE, and FBD PROJECT. Remix work is in progress for PAUL SG and KANTIC CHEMISTRY,with more music set for release on CREATIVE WAX. Currently, you can catch MADCAP on the airwaves during his monthly "CREATIVE WAX SHOW" (last SUNDAY each month from 4-6pm GMT courtesy of the FUTURESOUNDSRADIO site).

Join us this session of 'THE GREENROOM' as MADCAP unveils a special guest set in support of his upcoming 'B-BOY' EP which drops JANUARY 27th worldwide courtesy of the MYRIAD RECORDINGS label. Tune in!
