Riotous DJ collective Tomb Crew have been wowing crowds since they go together in 2006 and are set for big things in 2010.
Starting as a six-man collective in Nottingham, they began playing out grime and bass music, teaming up to deliver the best music on offer, splitting up to cover multiple venues on the same night and building up a well deserved following as hard working DJs with a love of big tunes. Moving down to London to play more in the capital’s best clubs and bars, the team slimmed down to a three-piece, two DJs and Illaman as their trusty MC.
The best way to describe the Tomb Crew guys is to say they play great “best of” sets. You can expect to get straight up classic grime bangers one night, then well known bassline tunes the next and rowdy sing-a-long dubstep the next.
As well as tearing up venues throughout Europe, they’ve turned their hand to production. Already having had remixes on Greco Roman for Totally Extinct Enormous Dinosaurs (the brilliantly titled ‘South Coast Teenage Pregnancy Remix’) and on Southern Fried for Crookers’ track with Kelis, they will be seeing their name on Rico Tubb’s Bass=Win label with their own ‘Inna Dat’ tune as well as the holy grail of a Trouble & Bass remix for head honcho Drop The Lime.
They also got a lot of recognition for their ‘Western Jam’ tune, which squeezes and skews the now universally known ‘Eastern Jam’ to give it a little bit of B-More flavour for the upstarts in the crowd.
With all this going on, it would be easy for them to sit in their studio and never come out, but their touring is non-stop and they are soon to head back out to Poland as well as Spain and Holland to give the rest of the continent some of the energy this country has been buzzing off in the last couple of years.
Despite all this, they’ve taken time out of their busy schedule to put together a minimix of all their remixes just for this blog to get everyone in the mood for dancing. Grab it and crank the volume, your neighbours will love it.
