Just Blaze is one of the most creative forces in the game. Having cut his teeth in the late 90's creating underground bangers for the likes of Buckshot. His distinctive sound soon caught the ear of the biggest players in the game and he soon had beats featured on albums for the likes of Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Big Pun & Jadakiss. It was however as an in house producer with Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella records that he really made waves producing instant classics for Kanye West, Cam'ron, Freeway, Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel and of course the main man himself Jay-Z who has featured Just Blaze beats on 6 of his last 7 albums, all of which have gone platinum!

The Jersey born producer, also known as the Megatron Don, has a distinctive soul drenched sound that still bangs so hard that it rocks dance-floors across the globe. Despite his credentials with the more mainstream names Just Blaze still has his ear in tune and hand in with the underground as he creates incredible soundscapes for the likes of Jay Electronica and Saigon. He will no doubt be treating a packed house to a fantastic mix of his own productions and the influences behind them in this exclusive sound-clash set.

The Alchemist, as the name would suggest has a knack of turning things into gold. Having got his start in the production game under the tutelage of two of the biggest names in the game, DJ Premier and DJ Muggs, this California native has made a name for himself for rough Boom Bap style hits. Through his work on albums for underground favourites Dilated Peoples & Defari he came to the attention of Mobb Deep who chose two beats to feature on the classic Murda Muzik, The Alchemist has not looked back since.

With a resume that now reads like a who's who of Hip-Hop including work with Nas, Ghostface, Lil-Wayne, Emimen (for who The Alchemist is tour DJ), Big Pun, Fat Joe & Raekwon to name just a few this battle between two of the most respected names in Hip-Hop is set to tear the roof off as is did last year especially as now we are rocking on the week end!

Providing the warm up for this incredible nights of Hip-Hop are some of the most respected names in the UK scene; Spin Doctor, The Last Skeptik & Mr Thing, and party crews Juicy, Classic Material & Main Squeeze. With a wealth of experience on radio but most importantly rocking clubs up and down the country they will all be making sure that this side of the pond is well represented while in such distinguished company. 

All events are presented in association with Dephect
