Rising from the out skirts of east london in the late 90s and being involved in a number of successful projects at a young age saw Chaz Beazli work alongside some of the countries most respected artist adding to the hunger and fuelling the drive to move forward in the underground music scene!
Chaz spent most of his youth spending hours on end searching for vinyl and the right type of music to achieve the levels of intensity necessary! always mixing with different moods and styles but never forgetting to focus on the dance floors desires, his stylistic and technical versatility and skills behind the turntables are what pulls him aside, hypnotic grooves and rolling baselines with a slight drop of acid are what to expect from this guy, showing that his experience from the dance floor and being a avid and passionate music collector shines through his sets!
Since hitting some of the bigger stages and being signed to labels like Coquette records and Arupa music also making appearances for Act natural records and landing a new and very exciting residency for rhythmatic Chaz has been fortunate enough to play along side and support some of the worlds leading artist and very big influences to him such as Margaret Dygas, Mark Henning, RpR, Barac, Appolonia, and many more, showing his skills as a DJ continue to evolve and surprise with each year that passes hoping to show that his work as a DJ reflects the love he has for vinyl and helps to commemorate the culture of underground dance music..
If you were to ask Andy the single most important component of any party he would find it hard to look past the dance floor. Having spent countless nights, and mornings for that matter, mesmerised by his favourite artists, Andy has tirelessly dug deep into the music archives to find ‘that’ record he heard being spun by his idols. One name in particular springs to mind, Ricardo Villalobos. The Chileans diversity and electrifying energy behind the decks has seen his name cast as one of Andy’s true hero’s and an ideal role model for him to strive towards. We look forward to hearing more from him in the near future!

When meeting on the dancefloor from being true ravers themselves they formed a duo which later led them to start their own imprint Arupa Music. Their sound is some what between house & techno with raw drums soft undertones and musicality is not a far.

Ask any well-known DJ, artist or producer the secret of their success and chances are that hard work will be pretty high up their list of essentials. Anyone who knows Anna Wall will know that this is one of the many characteristics that defines her, and now, after years of working her way up the underground ranks, it looks as if years of graft are starting to pay dividends.
Since first getting to grips with decks at the age of 19, Anna has developed a reputation and keen following in her native London and university town of Newcastle. Playing classic and contemporary house and US garage and with a strong affinity with the roots of both, Anna’s broad knowledge of the history of dance music sets her apart from the hundreds of unimaginative, chart-championing DJs that plague the scene.
Anna’s international break came in 2011 when she was recruited as resident DJ for Croatia’s Yacht Week, playing alongside CR2′s Dan Castro for an epic 7 days 7 nights. Since then, she has been booked alongside some of the world’s most respected DJ talents, with the last few years seeing Anna DJ in the impressive company of MK, Robert Owens, Norman Jay, Inland Knights, Soul Clap, Adam Shelton and Jordan Peak.
Anna finest moment to date came back in March, when she played for Mixmag’s DJ Lab live stream at their penthouse in Miami alongside techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson and Miami’s own Treasure Fingers; an incredible achievement in its own right and one about which she is extremely proud.
She spent her season this summer in Ibiza, playing clubs such as the world famous Space Ibiza for Future Disco alongside Carl Cox’s The Revolution Unites every Tuesday, plus trips back to her Hometown to play Warehouse LDN, and Watergate in Berlin to name a few. Watch this space…
