• |DJ KRASH SLAUGHTA| Krash has been involved in making records and DJ-ing since 1991, when he got his big break at the Hub Club in Bath. Jon Carter was also playing and was so impressed with his skills that he signed Krash to his band at the time, Monkey Mafia. The band went on to become one of the hottest underground acts of the 90s, playing gigs all over the World and supporting the likes of Roni Size on his Reprazent tour, and Massive Attack on their Mezzanine tour. He currently splits his time between DJ-ing and producing new material, playing alongside west coast of Scotland based group All Time High who featured on DJ Numark’s mix cd ‘Hands On’ and he recently supported the mighty Jurassic 5 at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange.

• |THE FLYING JALAPENOS| The Flying Jalapenos were formed over 4 years ago by Sideshow Maule and Wee Super Steve as the only 2 dedicated b-boys in Glasgow who wanted to train, learn, battle, perform, teach and most importantly have fun with the dance. The Jalapenos have taught, performed and battled all over Scotland in various cities and towns at many different events and venues trying to help more people get into the dance that they love "b-boying" and the other styles of hip-hop dance "locking" and "popping". Their crew has expanded a lot since first getting together and now includes b-boys from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Holland, Germany, Poland and South Africa with 1 b-girl Shelltoe Mel also representing Glasgow, which makes them an 11 strong international crew. Most of the crew will be in attendance at Cumbernauld Theatre ready to rock the floor......whenever the Jalapenos are flying it's always HOT!

Aside from providing mixes for Solid Steel and other radio shows (including Tru Thoughts / Zebra Traffic's The Dugout show) Colin has played in clubs across the UK and in Europe and has been resident for the last 9 years at "Headspin" at The Bongo Club in Edinburgh playing a mix of hip hop, funk, soul, breaks and anything else that's funky.
