“Stanton Warriors’ Bring Me Down is pretty much the perfect garage beat. Everything about that song – the vocal line, the chords, the melody – is totally original.”
“Oh my Gosh, SO good! This is the kind of music that makes you literally want to go mental on the nearest dancefloor. As tried and tested on my living room carpet!”
ANNIE MAC, BBC RADIO 1
“These two Bristol boys first charged, stormed and straight-up invaded the scene back in 2001 with a highly acclaimed debut compilation The Stanton Sessions and since then have continued to dominate and pillage every dance floor and pair of headphones that has come in their wake.”
Since bursting onto the scene with their multi award-winning compilation “The Stanton Sessions” back in 2001, the Stanton Warriors’ irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties over the past thirteen years; from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to the stages of Coachella, Glastonbury, Burning Man and Ultra, selling out global tours and topping DJ lists along the way.
In the studio, Bristol’s Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark, uncategorisable sound that is at once all their own, but also utterly indefinable, leading to high-profile releases on XL Records, Fabric, Cheap Thrills, Central Station and Universal, alongside official remixes for everyone from Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim, to MIA and Gorillaz. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity has ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers, as they remain fresh, original and relevant; obstinately dancing to beat of their own drum and helping to pave the way for new talent.
In 2014 alone, the Stanton Warriors topped the Beatport charts (again), inspired Disclosure’s Grammy-nominated album Settle, got Annie Mac dancing on her living room carpet, opened London’s 3k capacity Building Six club, saw their podcast shoot to No. 3 in the iTunes chart and smashed the stages of Ultra, Supersonic and Glastonbury.
In 2015, Stanton Warriors typically show no sign of slowing down with a brand new album featuring a host of new exciting bass artists such as Cause & Affect (aka Chris Lorenzo & Kane), sold-out tours across the USA, Europe, Australia and the Far East, collaborations on Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird label and a slew of exciting releases on their own tastemaker label Punks.

[expand title="Jeremy Daeger aka That Guy" tag="h3"]
Jeremy Daeger credits the beginning of his musical career to his father who handed him a DJ setup at the ripe age of 14. A hand-me-down from the neighbors, Daeger never knew it would be the beginning of a lifelong passion and hobby.
Like many self-taught DJs, he learned the ropes through relentless practice at beat-matching and mixing records. When the 90’s hit, Daeger embedded himself in the burgeoning rave scene and felt a renewed connection to music.
Reflecting on his earliest work experimenting with electronic music, Daeger explains, “I started with house music because it was a 4/4 style and easy to beat match.” It wasn’t long before he discovered the style of breaks in 2003, allowing him to branch out into new musical territory and leverage his love for hip hop and funk. “It’s more than just a beat,” Daeger says of his special blend of break beats and groovy jams. “It has vocals and familiar rhythms that people can really get into.”
An active member of the G9 Collective since 2009, That Guy The DJ’s distinct blend of hip hop and break beats further diversifies the well-rounded group of DJs. Mixing bass, funk and rhythms to make you want to dance, That Guy The DJ delivers guilty pleasures from your radio and iPod, but with more energy and sophistication.
“Elite Force unites the sometimes warring factions of electro house, techno, and breakbeat, like a peace keeper who values the spirit of cooperation and tolerance. He was forged in the fires of breakbeat, which has always had a habit of sucking in sounds that pass by. Elite’s sets are like a team performance, with tracks coming from all corners of the bass-driven sector, to create a vibrant hodgepodge of boundary-pushing dance music….“
Simon Shackleton’s Elite Force project began way back in 1996, debuting on his own newly founded Fused and Bruised label with a series of peerless 12s and remixes. After five successful years winning plaudits from the likes of Fatboy Slim & Jon Carter, he put Fused and Bruised on the backburner to concentrate on production work. After several years with Whole9Yards and Moonshine he became a primary artist on Adrift Recordings (formally known as Kingsize) before moving on to build his own empire under the U&A Recordings banner.
On the decks, Elite Force has been a prime mover since 1990 when he cut his teeth playing huge student nights and self-promoted acid house nights in the South West of England. Since then he has become known as one of the top technicians on a circuit that has included massive shows in Belarus, Hungary, Australia, Italy, USA, Czech Republic, Russia, India, Turkey, Spain, Japan, Georgia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and China, amongst others, as well as numerous festival slots including Burning Man, Glastonbury, Shambhala, Coachella, Kazantip, San Francisco’s Love Parade, Wickerman, Breakfest, Secret Garden Party and the Glade.
As a remixer, Elite Force has always been in huge demand, with legendary re-workings for the likes of Grandmaster Flash, Groove Armada, Crystal Method, Jungle Brothers, Stereo MCs, UNKLE & Infusion all contributing to his reputation as one of the most creative and effective remixers around.
Elite Force’s music has also been the soundtrack to many a movie, with a huge list of impressive A-list credits to his name, including the likes of the Matrix, Charlie’s Angels, Arlington Road, Mortal Kombat, Crow, The Bone Collector, The Jackyll, Spiderman 2 ‘ and his music has appeared on a wide array of TV shows, from CSI to Top Gear, from Football Focus to LA Doctors. He’s also soundtracked a number of computer games, including no fewer than 5 FIFA games, several of the Wipeout series, The Matrix and Motorstorm 1 & 2, and in 2011 he co-wrote 50% of the music to hit game Motorstorm : Apocalypse alongside Oscar-winning composer Klaus Badelt (Pirates of the Caribbean / Gladiator).
After releasing one of the most forward thinking albums in dance music (‘Revamped, 2010) to huge critical acclaim, Elite Force embarked on a bruising DJ schedule & has continued to destroy clubs and festivals alike with his bag of bespoke edits. He enjoyed a unique first when his Revamped album was released, having all 14 tracks inside the overall Beatport top 50 (all genres) thereby holding a 35% share of dance music’s most popular tracks. By the end of 2010 he enjoyed 4 of the top 10 best sellers of the year in the Beatport Breaks Chart including the #1 with M.A.D., as well as having seen no fewer than SEVEN of his tracks and mixes hit the number ONE slot over the course of the year. Subsequently he has received no fewer than 10 Breakspoll Nominations in the last two years, taking home the Awards for Best Producer and Best Label.
2012 saw the release of RVMPD2, an album of re-inventions, remixes, mashups and originals featuring an A-List cast, including Skrillex, Primal Scream, Adele, Deadmau5, Muse, Nero, Chemical Brothers and a host of legends from the world of electronic music, which enjoyed a sensational 250,000 global downloads. RVMPD3 is in the works and is scheduled for release, initially on vinyl-only at the end of 2013 following a sold out vinyl run of the highly acclaimed ‘Gamechanger’ single early in 2013.
Elite Force’s reputation as a pioneer has continued through 2012/13 with the establishment of The One Series, a series of club nights founded on the simple principal that good DJs should have a chance to tell a story through their sets. The One Series features One Room, One DJ, playing All Night, and these parties in locations such as San Francisco, Burning Man, Forcefields (Simon’s own invite-only Festival that launched in 2013) and London have quickly become legendary, unmissable and uniquely immersive events.
For many of these longer DJ sets, Elite Force has begun performing under his real name Simon Shackleton, which has co-incided with his creation of uber-cool Electronica imprint STEREOPHOENIX. He has also written and produced close to an album’s worth of material, set for release early in 2014, and already supported by the likes of Laurent Garnier, Sasha, John Digweed, Jody Wisternoff, Nick Warren, Christian Martin and many more. With the mantra ‘Electronic Music With Heart & Soul’ this is an exciting new parallel chapter in his distinguished career.
Brooks and Daeger is a collaboration of two of Indy’s top breakbeat DJs, James B. and Jeremy Daeger aka That Guy the DJ. With the years of experience these two have, they know how to keep the crowd on the floor.
