With tracks from:

Dark Chambers
With music moving as fast as it does, Patric Mclean’s production has been forward thinking, delving into tech house and melodic techno for the last 2 years under his mysterious alter ego Dark Chambers. After launching his label csGASRecords he released the huge ‘Pandora’s Box’ [which was featured on Radio 1 as a breakthrough underground track]. This was then followed by the groove based ‘Mesh’ which soared high on the download charts.
His first artist album, A Walk in the Dark, stamped his mark on the electronic industry showcasing Dark Chamber’s different shades and as a result gaining huge support and acclaim. Now with 2 albums under his belt Dark Chambers gets better and better focusing his attentions heavily on his DJ’ing and the artists that he mentors on his label.
Influenced by favourite artists like Hawtin, Beyer, D’julz, Maetrik, and Hobo his music styles span accordingly catering for the wider market that he so loves to play in.
In a time where the UK has been engulfed with commercial dance music and the scene has been dictated by huge, predictable labels, the uprising of the underground has been imminent. Dark Chambers is proving that the scene is progressing as he begins to go over ground with his sound!

Cinderella Man
Cinderellaman (Arron Whall) has a telepathic taste for a track with a sound that is forever forward moving but also remains relevant to the past. A mixture of old and new. A fusion of techno, house and disco. A unique sound, but one that did not just develop overnight. Back in 2006, he gave himself a platform by forming ‘Glitch’ – an after hours party in their humble hometown of Cleethorpes, Glitch became a spring board for the Cinderellaman’s future success. Bringing DJ’s such as Jamie Jones (Crosstown Rebels) and educating a dedicated and willing crowd on the way. But there were bigger things to come. Off the back of Glitch came a successful number of gigs at some of the best clubs and club nights in the North of England. Gigs at Sankeys in Manchester, which saw him playing on the same bill as Cocoon favourite Loco Dice, and the legendary Back to Basics in Leeds. This gave him a chance for them to showcase his ability to a wider audience. This didn’t go unnoticed, as people from further afield started to take note. Cinderellaman became a resident at Eclectricity in Birmingham, playing alongside the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Cassy, Sven Vath, Dj Sneak and Dubfire. Not only this, but they hosted the after hours Eclectricity party at the infamous Rainbow pub in Birmingham.
One of his biggest influences has been the city of Berlin. His monthly visits to the German capital has allowed him to spend a lot of time in Berghain, which features the world-renowned Panorama Bar upstairs. The time spent in this club, and in many others in Berlin, has been an inspiration to him in regards to, not only his sound, but also his appreciation of house and techno culture. The trips give him the chance to visit the city’s finest record stores, rapidly increasing his ever-growing vinyl collection.
The future looks promising for Cinderellaman after finishing his tour in the Ukraine and Belarus securing bookings next year in the Ukraine, Berlin and Russia .

After huge success with csGasRecords, the team at BrikWorx felt it has now come the time to push musical boundaries even further with an innovative and exciting new record label – D-Sub Recordings. D-Sub is the BrikWorx team’s alias for music that is to be associated with this label. Primarily this label has been launched launched to tap into fresh music coming from a wide range of different music genres including Future Garage, Dubstep, Deep Electronic House, Drum ‘n’ bass, Hip Hop and Grime. An element of this concept is present here on this album to give you a taste of things to come from D-Sub Recordings.

Uluru aka Rob Commons, the youngest of the team, has his debut release here on this album. After being a prominent DJ in and around Birmingham over the last 4 years DJing as part of the Disc Junkies and enjoying residencies for both the University of Birmingham’s 1210 DJ society and Naked Lunch, Rob has decided it was high time to begin releasing some of his music. Playing a mixture of melody and groove based tech along with some harder techno, Rob has echoed the music he so loves to DJ in his production. With this surely being the first release of many, be prepared for exciting music to come from Uluru.
