DJ SNAP – Convention style J-Core & UK Hardcore
Snap started DJing in early 2009, playing at conventions and niche club nights, and has played nearly every major anime convention since – regularly to crowds of up to 1000 people. As well as his love for all things geek, he is also a big fan of hard dance music, and enjoys mixing the latest hardstyle and hardcore. He is known for playing a blend of bouncy energetic hardcore, often sampling from old video games and anime, as well as a wide variety of brutal hardstyle beats.
DYZPHAZIA – J-Core / Freeform
Dyz first got into the rave scene many years ago through older siblings going to local underground Hardcore Raves. After hearing this movement of new music, this was instant love for hardcore and so the story began. Around the same sort of time (1994-1996), Dyz’s older brother had been watching Anime for several years, although until now Dyz hadn’t been old enough to understand the more adult themes. After watching the Devil Man OVA’s when he was, this sparked off a life long love of Japanese culture, animation and music.
Dyz has been mixing Freeform for 6 years and J-Core for 4. Now managing a successful underground electronic music podcast and rated best up and coming Freeform DJ by many top artists, Dyz has turned his attentions to learning how to make music. He now has two released records on reputable record labels and is playing regular Freeform events in the UK. While J-Core has taken a bit of a back-burner for 2012, Dyz still follows the scene and listens to it frequently. He also has forthcoming releases on major hardcore label Relentless Digital.
DJ TYUJIA – The best of UK / Happy Hardcore
Tyujia started DJing in late 2010, the result of a chance query of “happy hardcore” on youtube leading to an unbridled fascination with the incredibly talented hardcore DJ, DJ Cotts. What began as mere emulation soon matured into her own unique approach to mixing hardcore, favouring euphoric upfront vocal tracks pushed to the extreme tempo of 185 bpm. She is also a dedicated scratch artist and pursue it with the same relentless enthusiasm for the technical finesse as her mixing.
Tyujia’s first public performance was at the MCM Expo October 2011; an unofficial endeavour borne of a love for the music. As a result she was invited to perform on the Fringe Stage at the May Expo 2012 and came off an even bigger success as another crowd of dedicated ravers partied for hours in the blazing sunshine.
DJ SHENNY – The freshest K-Pop, J-Pop and Electro beats

In 2008 Shenny went from playing to a crowd of 30 to 100 and now plays up to over a 1200+ people at events such as Kitacon, Ayacon, Alcon and most recently the MCM Fringe Stage. All while playing regularly alongside DJ Digi at the Cosplay Clubnights, which they founded with other like minded J-music folk in 2008.
