This dance arena houses deep and dirty drum ‘n’ bass.  Cubicles revellers will be treated to the heart shaking bass and breaks of local resident talents alongside some of the most skillful world-renowned turntablists from the DJ establishment.

2018 line up includes…

Friday Night in The Cubicles is going to be one to remember as we welcome DJ Mag Bunker in Collaboration with Metalheadz. The bass music little sister of the mighty DJ Mag will be covering the event. They are joined by one of the most innovative labels out there, a label whose back catalogue features almost every major figure in the history of DnB whilst still letting new talent break through. It’s no surprise that Metalheadz nights are sell outs and the label can be seen at some of the biggest festivals across the world. Featuring Dillinja, S.P.Y (special guest), Randall, Amoss, Ant TC1, Octo Pi (special guest) and homegrown talent Scope, this one’s going down in Nozstock history.
Moving to London from São Paulo, S.P.Y was quick to establish himself within U.K drum ‘n’ bass due to a natural talent for production that saw his first ever release signed to Metalheadz. Now one of the top acts at Hospital Records, S.P.Y has released LPs: ‘ What The Future Holds’, winning the DNB Arena album of the year award and ‘Back To Basics’. He has also curated an installment of the world famous BBC Radio1 Essential Mix. DJing worldwide on a regular basis, S.P.Y is able to showcase his well-loved sound that is diverse, unique in quality, and perfectly suited for the dancefloor. Praised by his contemporaries and always high in demand from the biggest clubs and festivals, there is seemingly no end to this bright star’s meteoric rising path.
Try having a conversation about the rave scene, breakbeat culture or Jungle / drum ‘n’ bass and not mention the name Randall. Impossible. The DJs DJ, most in the industry will claim Randall as one of their major inspirations. The truth is, Randall IS Drum & Bass. Nearly 25 years in the game and his selection is as impeccable as ever, still mixing as faultlessly on two turntables as he ever did, in an age where technology (Sync Buttons) evolved to a standard that lets us all mix just like him. Randall is the true definition of a legendary DJ, loved by the public & the industry alike.
Drum ‘n’ bass has had it’s share of stand out producers over the years, but only a few can lay claim to possessing such a truly influential, innovative and ever-evolving sound as Dillinja. With a string of hits under his belt including ‘Sovereign Melody’ and ‘Violent Killa’, a track now revered in the DnB community, it was 2000s Cybotron which established Dillinja as one of the most sought after remix artists for both underground and mainstream musicians including Dizzee Rascal and David Bowie. With classic and genre-defining tunes, the Dillinja name is recognised not only in the scene he helped to define from ’97 but across the entire dance genre and has been for nearly three decades.
Andy Tweedale and James Evans, AKA Amoss are a UK Drum ‘n’ Bass duo known for their raw production style, bringing a new level of ridiculousness to the all too serious Drum ‘n’ Bass scene. December 2010 saw the duo release their first 12″ single; the half-time muddy dub influenced track ‘Glurg Monster’ Since then, the pair has built a impressive discography of over 70 tracks, releasing on labels such as Dispatch Recordings and Horizons Music, all whilst gaining support from the likes of Noisia, Dub Phizix, London Elektricity and more. From the clubs of Vienna to Los Angeles, to the festival stages of Outlook and regular hometown slot at Nozstock, Amoss have toured extensively. To put it simply their fridge magnet collection is something to be reckoned with. During their downtime the duo continue to live and breathe music, recording their infamous podcast ‘The Cranium Sessions’. The show is not only an outlet to play the latest from the underground scene whilst heavily supporting unsigned and upcoming artists, but a competition between the friends to outdo each other in their musical finds.
Ant TC1 co-founded Dispatch Recordings back in 2001. His first release alongside frequent production partner Stress Level appeared on Dispatch, after which he quickly picked up a wealth of DJ support and went on to release for a who’s who list of established Drum & Bass record labels including the likes of Renegade and Critical Records. In 2014 Ant realised a lifetime ambition, securing his first ever release for the legendary Metalheadz label ‘Hungry For Atmosphere’ alongside Mako, DLR & Villem. Ant’s production output has featured on a mass of compilations, assembled by the likes of Shy FX and Brian G. Additionally his work has featured heavily within the radio shows of Friction, Grooverider, Fabio and Goldie on their respective Radio 1 slots over the years. Fast forward to 2017 and Ant is now responsible for the label management roles of both Metalheadz & Dispatch Recordings and has collaborated with the likes of Dauntless and DLR.
Octo Pi‘s style of drum ‘n’ bass can only be described as ‘up front,’ with most of his tracks featuring punchy drums coupled with complex melodic basslines, set on a backdrop of euphoric, evolving pads. 2015 was a great year for this Swansea lad, with releases on Signal Jam Records, AFT Records and his biggest success to date with heavy-hitting ‘ Matter’ on Viper Recordings ‘Summer Slammers 2015’ Annual. Octo Pi’s technical ability is something to behold. Blending together a selection of the very best of old and new on 3 decks with oodles of energy and finesse, he’ll tear off the roof of any venue he plays in. Previous events have seen him play alongside the likes of Andy C, Sub Focus and S.P.Y to name a few. He’s also appeared on the synonymous D&B TV after winning the Drum & Bass Arena Competition for Remixing DJ Fresh’s ‘Gold Dust’ and was recently featured on Rene LaVices Radio 1 show. With a new album dropping Summer 2018, this is certainly one cephalopod to keep a very close eye on.

Everything about Mollie Collins’ approach, attitude, technique and rise smacks of the original spirit drum & bass was founded on. She is rooted in club culture and it’s been this way since Mollie was 15, devoutly attending BPM under-18 events and squat raves until she was old enough to completely immerse herself in the culture.

Nozstock’s resident, Remidy MC has had a keen interest in drum ‘n’ bass since the turn of the millennium. His passion started after being taken to raves in Birmingham and being amazed by the unique sounds he was hearing. He set about trying to contribute to the scene by writing some vocals of his own and soon the whole package of drum ‘n’ bass became an intense passion. 2006 saw Remidy pick up his first sizable gigs with the likes of Zinc and Grooverider and by 2010 he has become resident MC at huge nights such as Run and Shit The Bed.
