After the massive 2018 they had with a slobber-knocker of collaborations, Blackout’s Neonlight is back for a 2019 update for the 2018 dance floor slammers, Boom and Slap. Boom 2019 comes in heavy, grinding tech like sharpening swords, and that dancefloor style synth that will get stuck in your head from the first go. It’s as if an 8-bit Nintendo game was given a bottle of steroids, spit out, and rendered. As the drop hits, watch the mob head straight for the speakers. Not only will it grind your body, but your teeth will suffer for this one as well.
SLAP 2019 upgrades the original with tricky neuro patterns, breakbeat switch ups, and glitchy effects sailing the seven billion seas of neurofunk. Neonlight’s atmospheric contents drive the intro, as we step through a technoid wonderland that seems to keep building… The slow down brings the… Drop. Gritty. Dirty. Funky. Who needs ritalin and adderall when you’ve got this funky floor killer? Big up Neonlight.
A junglist before he even knew what 'jungle' was, Bhagavate Zero was instantly hooked onto the sound of rave around the age of 10 while dancing around to artists like 2 Unlimited, 2 Bad Mice, Sonz of a Loop Da Loop Era, Cosmo & Dibs, and so many more.
As radio play changed, so did his tastes. As 1999 came around though, BZ was slayed by the sounds of AK1200, Dieselboy, Dara, Ganja Kru and DJ Rap, which later turned into an obsession with amen breaks and techstep.
With published works hosted by Dogs On Acid, Rinse Mag, and Bassline Magazine; while also writing for the likes of Disturbed Recordings, Guerilla, Blu Saphir, Killing Sheep, Influenza Media, Sublunary Artist Management, and N2O – Bhagavate Zero (then known as Sykophiend) dove into the performance art of DJing, opening for Omar Santana in 2005 at Headstrong 5 (noteworthy part of that set – a mosh pit of epic proportions to Audio & Mackie's remix of Master of Puppets). Known for a wicked selection of mostly 1993-2005 music, he would then go on to play all over California. This headbanging, slam-dancing, screaming maniac will stop at nothing to get a crowd going.
Now in 2016, he is a staple writer for Best Drum & Bass Blog, and is focusing on DJ gigs and original production material.
