Daily Dubstep presents Chestplate
Daily Dubstep was launched in 2009 and after several splendid editions at the Vooruit, Daily Dubstep has been hosting a stage on the mighty Tomorrowland festival ever since. Daily Dubstep also joined forces with Star Warz on several occasions, the most notorious ones being on New Year’s Eve at ICC. And now, Daily Dubstep is ready to hit the Vooruit again, hosting an exclusive Chestplate label Night.
Chestplate Recordings was founded in August 2007 by Dubstep pioneer Distance, as a means to release his own music. The edgy sound that Chestplate is currently known for was evident from the very first release by Distance & Skream 'Political Warfare / Radical'. Since then the quality control bar has always remained high with releases by Benga and Cyrus, not to mention an array of top quality releases from Distance himself such as 'V', 'Victim Support' and 'Menace'.
Voted as one of the top 10 labels in Dubstep for 3 consecutive years in the Dubstep forum awards, the next step for Chestplate was to start building a camp. What better way than with Tunnidge in 2010, resulting in his now modern classics - '7 Breaths / Fear'. 2011 saw the camp ever expanding with more exiting upcoming artists including Cyrus, District, Sleeper and Razor Rekta.
The last couple of years Chestplate expanded its reach to the airwaves on BBC Radio 1xtra's Daily Dose Mix roster and landed itself a residency at one of London's most iconic nightlife spots: Fabric. They also went international with the label's debut tour of the United States and kept branching out to events across Europe. All this certifies the label to the forefront of the Dubstep music scene. Chestplate keeps its foot to the floor! Keep locked and tune in at this edition of Daily Dubstep!
First up is Distance who was already a name on everyone's lips since day one, and he’s widely recognized as having helped to lay the foundations of what Dubstep is and develop what it has become. Fostering a unique sound, Distance as producer, DJ and label owner has been pushing things in a direction all of his own. Now he will be showcasing the best talent from his label to our beloved Daily Dubstep public.
Leon Switch, whom we all know as half of the legendary Kryptic Minds formation, is now out solo as fully fledged member of Chestplate and with a new sampler collection on Loopmasters.
