Genetix is the combination of two people, Matt Sharp and Rich Dawson.The pair started out producing D&B in late 2006 under various alias's and built up a large catalogue of vinyl and digital releases. Having produced they're fair share of D&B they decided to try they're hands at dubstep. They're debut production "Squid Attack" caught the attention of the scene in a big way with support from the likes of Nero, Sub Focus, Flux Pavillion,Funtcase and more recently Skrillex amongst many others. The track was released late 2010.
Since then the duo have continued to raise the bar with many vinyl and digital releases across all aspects of dubstep. A collab with Funtcase and some of they're solo tracks saw releases on Circus Records amonst others. They're remix shedule has been a hectic one to say the least with artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Timabaland, Drumsound and Bassline Smith and Aquasky under they're belts.
Genetix's deeper productions have also made a big impact with support from Youngsta,J Kenzo, Skream and Benga, N-Type & Walsh amonst many others. Genetix also completed 3 daily dose's of dubstep for Mista Jams 1xtra show. It's 2013 and Genetix have launched they're own label "Big Tuna" The first release entitled "$$$ Ep" saw support from Skream and Benga on radio 1 and reached no.7 in the beatport chart. You can expect to see many more releases in future from the Big Tuna camp.

Headah Freaq is Spyros Sellas, a producer from the capital city of Greece, Athens, born in 1995. Started producing in November of 2010 and quickly developing his own sound, this artist has big ambitions for his future in Dubstep. Always had an interest in music from a young age, enchased by theoretical music knowledge and a variety of knowledge about playing a few music instruments. He is mostly influenced from genres like Hip Hop, Metal and Drum n' Bass, as well as Soundtracks from Thrillers and movies in general. Having been DJing with many well known DJ's and crews and collaborating with respectable producers, this artist is keen to put his mark on the scene. Although his output is strictly Dubstep for the time being, his love of bass music means you can expect to hear a variety of styles and genres from him in the future.
