One half of the Cosa nostra duo and co‐founder of rising label Darker Than Wax, Dean aka the Funk Bast*rd has been tirelessly pushing and promoting an alternative expression of leftfield music through his widely eclectic and genre‐bending sets. His musical selection, which traverses between a huge variety of musical genres like deep jazz, soul, funk, boogie, Brazilian grooves, deep house, hip hop and bass numbers have left many indelible marks on the dancefloors and earned the praises of many selectors worldwide.
For those who are to new to Floyd, his name has been circulating greatly in the beat scene for a while now, garnering a reputation for churning out infectious and groovy soul-loops. Early users of the Soundcloud platform would only know this too well. His tracks have also been featured in numerous compilations, some that's definitely worth a mention is his 'Pain' cut in Tempo Dreams Vol.1, a well-known compilation put together by the one and only Tall Black Guy as well as a release with Darker Than Wax.
William J (Darker Than Wax///Vancouver, Canada)Introduced to sound system culture and pirate radio while living in the UK in 2008, an obsession with early Dubstep and Grime pushed William J to get involved in underground music. After quietly building his skills and tastes for years, William J's ever evolving hybrid sound blends together a diverse range of styles, including UK Bass and Funky, old school House and Garage, Jersey/Baltimore Club, Footwork, Hip-Hop/Beats, and everything in between. His forward thinking selection, versatility, and strong knowledge of dance music history brings a fresh perspective to the growing underground scene. After establishing his signature sound with key sets at venues such as Blu Jaz, Fash (The Butter Factory), and Home Club since 2011, William J is now the newest member of music label and collective Darker Than Wax.
