2011 was the year that the US proved it could rival British bass: Sepalcure (Praveen Sharma and Travis Stewart) delivered their eponymous debut to Scuba’s Hotflush Recordings, while Machinedrum (Stewart on his own) fed the juke-hungry Planet Mu. Opening is Jersey’s MikeQ, he who parlayed his underground fame in the ballroom and vogue scene into recognition from label-of-the-moment Night Slugs. Expect him to mix singles from his own QweenBeat Records with runway-grabbers, local house, and UK bass.
