To drum & bass fans the world over the names Calyx and TeeBee are synonymous with high quality, perfectly sculpted music. Just as Michelangelo discovered statues in blocks of stone, so Calyx and TeeBee discovered the essence of D&B locked away in studio equipment; always forward-thinking and packed with as much integrity as energy; their music has had an impact on the scene for over fifteen years.
As ‘All Or Nothing’ continues to develop a life of its own, having spawned massive singles such as ‘Strung Out’, ‘Elevate This Sound’, ‘Pure Gold’ and ‘Scavenger’; the duo can be found either deep in the studio working on their next releases or at the world’s most respected drum & bass events, massaging the masses with their intricate six-deck sermons. More forward-thinking and packed with as much integrity and energy as ever, their music continues to have a peerless impact on drum & bass… and beyond!
Rise started as a simple idea between two mates. We wanted more Drum & Bass in Swansea, but mainly Drum & Bass that hadn’t been done here before, or at least not for a while. This led to us organising our first event where we brought Kove to Sin City. What we thought would be a fairly quiet start to our brand turned in to the club hitting capacity and having 700 ravers skanking until the lights came on…
With this immediate success, we knew we couldn’t stop. 2 years later, we’ve brought down some of the biggest names in the scene, from High Contrast to Dub Phizix. We’ve given support to local DJs, worked with clothing brands and various artists from around Wales.
