PENDULUM & MV VERSE (DJ Set)
Formed during 2002 by three musicians from Western Australia with similar visions and musical backgrounds, Pendulum’s mission has always been to pull together their production resources, ideas and influences from various styles of music, to create a new sound that they felt was missing from dance music. The individual members behind Pendulum had been active in Perth’s live music scene for several years: producer / vocalist / keyboardist Rob Swire and producer / bassist Gareth McGrillen played together in the acclaimed Perth band Xygen, while Paul ‘El Hornet’ Harding was a veteran of the Perth DJ scene.
MY NU LENG + DREAD MC
With Jammo originally hailing from High Wycombe and Tommy from Kent, the duo combined to form My Nu Leng when they moved to Bristol, taking influences from the spectrum of underground UK sounds with them – Drum and bass, Dubstep, UK garage and Grime all find outlets in their music. My Nu Leng are similarly known for their blistering sets and dark, smouldering vibe, heavy on the mood but always compulsively danceable.
From their adopted home of Bristol – where early Reggae, Drum and Bass and Dubstep pioneers all the way to Massive Attack and Portishead informed their cultural history, both understood the heritage and importance of bass music in the city. Since then My Nu Leng have toured pretty much all over the world: the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Asia, all showing love and emphasising the realisation of how far they’ve come from their first singles to their most recent EP ‘Horizons’ getting heavy radio support on BBC 1Xtra and BBC Radio 1.
With new music on the way and a packed diary of live tour dates, these are exciting times for My Nu Leng, proving they’re equally at home on underground tracks and Official Number One records. A tricky ask, Tommy and Jammo – just like their meteoric career so far – have made it look easy.
