But these guys refuse to be boxed in. Neeko, Ozzie B & DJ Sean Bartana keep it fresh, blending Garage, Grime, Drill & Trap effortlessly. Neeko summed it up perfectly, ‘We vibe with the beat, not the genre. And that’s never changing.’

These dudes live and breathe music. From remixing Gabrielle’s “Dreams” to tearing it up on tour with The Streets, they’ve done it all.

Live, they’re on another level. DJ Sean Bartana’s infamous for bringing tracks back again and again, keeping the energy through the roof. ‘We want you feeling the same vibes we do,’ they say. And trust, they deliver, with shows that leave you buzzing for days.

From BBC Radio 1 Live to Garage Nation, Wireless Festival to GRM Daily Awards, they’re everywhere.

GTA – Girls Take Action

GTA – Girls Take Action is one of the UK’s pioneering all-female Drum’n’Bass crews, dedicated to showcasing female talent in a predominantly male-dominated scene. Led by V Dubz, the crew consists of V Dubz herself, Enamie, and Iffy.

V Dubz’s journey to turn her dream into reality began in 2009, when she and Lady Blazer were among the few all-female acts in the Drum’n’Bass industry. Recognizing the uniqueness of their collaboration, V Dubz and Lady Blazer continued to perform together on the renowned radio station Rough Tempo. Their show, “Feminine Takeover,” became a platform to promote female talent in a scene that had long disregarded women’s voices.

However, their efforts were not without resistance. While not explicitly stated, it was clear to V Dubz that the male-dominated world of Drum’n’Bass viewed “Feminine Takeover” as a threat to their flourishing scene. Despite this, V Dubz patiently waited for the right moment to make her mark while also building her own successful career.

In 2014, V Dubz returned with renewed determination, this time joined by MC Enamie. Together with Lady Blazer, they once again took to the airwaves of Rough Tempo. This time, they made history by showcasing over 15 talented women from across the country, a world-exclusive in the Drum’n’Bass realm.

Not content with their achievements, V Dubz sought to give even more female artists a platform. In 2015, she invited several hidden talents from the drum and bass scene to participate in another all-female show on Rough Tempo. This idea gained popularity among ravers and supporters of the GTA brand, solidifying its position as a choice destination for discovering and supporting female talent.

The final addition to the crew was Iffy, the youngest and most promising MC of the group. With her inclusion, GTA – Girls Take Action underwent a rebranding and evolved into the esteemed Drum’n’Bass crew it is today, cherished by fans and enthusiasts alike.
