U.K. producer Mumdance, aka Jack Adams, has navigated his way through an eclectic batch of genres from the beginning of his musical career, taking in everything from grime to kuduro. Growing up in rural Sussex on a diet of '90s hardcore, jungle, garage, and early-'90s guitar music, Adams had originally started out as a club promoter with fellow DJs and producers High Rankin and L-Vis 1990 -- who had all attended the same school -- with their drum'n'bass night Fallout in neighboring Brighton. A stint with Vice magazine as their events manager saw Adams promoting various events, and also heralded the arrival of his Mumdance guise.
As the founder of fast rising record label Gobstopper Records and co-founder of club-night, now also record label Boxed, he’s a curator and auteur at the forefront of forward thinking instrumental grime, ambient and experimental electronic music.
He’s currently signed to Planet Mu as a solo artist working on the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut LP ‘Parallel Memories’. As a producer/co-writer he has worked with grime stalwarts Skepta, P-Money and more recently with r&b/electronic star Katy B. He is fast becoming a go-to producer/writer outside of the instrumental grime sphere.
A DJ with a passion for bass of varying tempos and styles, Shy Eyez was born in the Netherlands and spent the majority of her childhood in Holland before moving to Nashville, Tennessee. In September 2014, Shy Eyez was given a weekly Monday happy hour gig at Bossa Nova Civic Club. "I got really lucky," she says. From only having stepped foot inside the club once (to see Henning Baer), she suddenly found herself spending quite some time in the booth. She still has her biweekly happy hours at Bossa, and most recently ventured into booking dnb/bass/breaks/non-4-2-the-floor-techno talent for her party series, BreakZ. Notable recent gigs include Discwoman, Confused House and GROOVY GROOVY, and she's appeared on both the Lot Radio and WNYU several times. Her sets lean heavily towards U.K. bass music, influenced largely by the Bristol music scene.
