Funktion-One Sound

Sleeper bio:
Widely regarded as one of the best dubstep producers in the world, Sleeper (Alex Fox) has been one of the leaders of dubstep’s creative revival.

Growing up in the UK, Sleeper became a regular at the DMZ and Subdub nights in Leeds, shifting his production focus from drum n bass to dubstep. “Coming from drum n bass and jungle, it was eye opening to see so much space in the sound. I felt like there was so much potential to grow.”

The first incarnation of Sleeper was endorsed by DJ Distance from the jump. Released by Chestplate in 2011, “Zombies” helped usher in an era of dark techno inspired dubstep that was marked by its movie-quality sound design. Along with artists like Kryptic Minds, District, and Biome, Sleeper’s output continually improved and shaped dubstep’s darker side. Releases with J:Kenzo’s Artikal Music, Moving Ninja’s Aquatic Lab, and Simon Shreeve’s (Kryptic Minds) Osiris Music, followed.

Mesck bio:
Zach Mellion is one creative from the new wave. Except Zach, who you’ll likely know as Mesck, has been producing and DJing since 2003. While the likes of Skream, Benga, and Digital Mystikz were pushing boundaries of what would become known as dubstep with releases on Crodydon’s Big Apple around the same time, Mesck was exploring his sonic abilities with Hip Hop and Drum & Bass.

Over the last decade or so, the now Los Angeles-based creative has built a global following as he’s continued to carve a niche in the 140 bpm spectrum. Mesck rose to international prominence with his debut on Distance’s Chestplate imprint- the first American producer to release on the genre –defining label. A number of collaborative and solo efforts on American labels preceded 2014’s ‘CHST032’, but it was 2015’s ‘Dead Language’ EP that cemented Mesck’s standing within the dubstep community.
