Onesevenfour are heading to New Zealand to present the latest instalment in their top-notch DnB concert series, 'Onesevenfour 002'! The tour is set to bring a jaw-dropping lineup of hitmakers to Wellington, Auckland and Dunedin from February through to March. After its NZ dates, the route will see the tour wrap up events happening in Australia—hitting Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney.
Expect melodic chord progressions, uplifting vocals and good vibes from start to finish from the stacked bill of groundbreaking DnB artists worldwide.
Hailing from the south-west of the UK, DnB producer Fred V has elevated his trademark euphoria and melodic movements to new heights. Signed to Hospital Records as a solo artist, he draws inspiration from the likes of future-bass, electronica powerhouse Flume, and the neo-soul stylings of Tom Misch. Having spent the last seven years touring the world and receiving huge support across dancefloors and airwaves from the likes of Annie Mac, Friction, MistaJam and Rene LaVice, this marks his first return to New Zealand since the departure of his decade-long successful collaborative project, Fred V & Grafix.
Head of the renowned label Spearhead Records, BCee has a serious collection of releases under his belt. This DnB heavyweight is responsible for over 100 tracks and remixes over the past 25 years. Some of his most notable works include remixes alongside big names such as S.P.Y, P Money, Camo & Krooked, Jakwob, Blu Mar Ten, Hybrid Minds and a whole lot more.
With constant support from DnB's top taste makers, Villem is the very definition of 174bpm neo-soul—specialising in punchy breaks and cavernous low-end that soothe the home-listener and destroy the dancefloor in equal measure.
The Vanguard Project
Spearhead label boss BCee joins forces with Villem to create the well-known superduo, The Vanguard Project. With their self-titled EPs Vol 1–3 already creating a ruckus, a debut EP on legendary Fokuz Recordings and an impressive array of remixes for the likes of Stanton Warriors, Hybrid Minds, Utah Jazz, Riya, BCee & S.P.Y, there's little doubt remaining that this was a collaboration written in the stars. Now with more dubplates, VIPs and re-edits than you can fit on a USB stick, The Vanguard Project are armed, dangerous and ready to wreck any event in front of them.
Crowned queen of DnB at the Drum and Bass Arena Awards 2014 & 2015, Riya has put her versatile voice to work on countless hyped releases—from her huge singles 'Open Page', 'Seems Like' and 'Piano Funk', to 'See Your Face', 'Waiting On' and 'Fear Bites'. Riya is recognised as an artist in her own right, and her work has seen her garner a loyal fan base worldwide. Meanwhile, her debut album 'Sublimation' (via Spearhead Records) features collaborations with some of the DnB leading figures including: LSB, Break, Total Science, Enei, Hybrid Minds, Bcee, Dynamite MC, Frank H Carter III, Collette Warren and many more.
