***Meat Katie:
DJ, producer & Londoner Meat Katie has a relatively long history when it come to dance music. He's held down a residency at Tresor in Berlin, he's done a Radio 1 Essential Mix, he's released a fabric live mix CD, he's remixed James Zabelia (to name just one). The list is almost endless. Add to that his four artist albums & countless singles, you can see why were extremely excited to have such a well renowned mover & shaker on the decks at Bank Of Switches.

In June 2013 Meat Katie started a brand new series of Podcasts entitled ‘Lowering The Tone’ that explores all genres of underground dance music and also features reveling interviews with some of the scenes most established and influential DJs producers & industry leaders, he provides a unique insight into the inner workings of running a label and being a professional DJ/Producer in the digital age.

Those who have seen him DJ will know that it is his diversity and energy that has earned him such respect for his tough techy style. This has seen him play across the globe alongside an eclectic group of DJs from Digitalism, Justice, Simian Mobile Disco, Soulwax and Erol Alkan, to Deep Dish, James Zabiela, Sasha & Digweed, Carl Cox, Armand Van Buren and Tiesto. He has supported live acts such as Chemical brothers, Pendulum, Prodigy Basement Jaxx, to name but a few & has been one of the very few non DnB DJs to play on the legendary Valve Soundsystem.

***Ben Coda:
Since his first release at the end of 2008, Ben Coda’s unique blend of tech and progressive house has picked up massive support worldwide.

Ben has worked with some of the most influential and well-known labels around, including Unreleased Digital, Baroque, Whartone, Inkfish and Black Hole. The list of DJ’s supporting Ben’s tunes reads like a who’s who of dance music - Funkagenda, Paul Oakenfold, Nick Warren, Roger Sanchez, Hybrid, Sonny Wharton, Daniel Portman, Chris Reece, EDX, Cid Inc and many more…

Because of his tech-prog sound – tough beats and rolling basslines contrast with soaring melodies, fusing a love of the tougher sounds of techno and tech house with classic progressive house - you won't want to miss out on the 17th of September.

Now firmly established as part of the Lowering The Tone crew Ben is an exciting talent destined for big things.

***Matt Goddard:
In his Dopamine guise, Matt Goddard exploded onto the scene in 2006 with his debut release Hold You on Rennie Pilgrem's seminal TCR imprint. A tune that went on to win best single at the International Breakspoll Awards that same year. With three more nominations for Breakthrough Producer, Best Remix and Best Producer he certainly made an impact in a very short space of time.

Matt's no one genre pony, with a string of house, minimal and tech releases under his belt, this internatinally known label boss, DJ & producer is still churning out the dancefloor destroyers. We're extremely excited to have such an awsesome talent behind the decks at our party. More used to gracing the ones & twos at large events in places as diverse as Russia, China, Australia & The Czech Republic Matt will now be bringing his blend of no nonsence, heads down business to our little shin dig on Brick Lane.

***Johnny Hunter:
From the fields of Hampshire in the 90s rave days via Glastonbury and several London residencies, Johnny Hunter's imitable blend of house, tech funk and the odd breakbeat has been rocking dance floors and muddy patches for over 20 years.
During that time he's contributed guest mixes to Ministry of Sound Radio, played AKA at The End, The Box London and co-founded the popular noughties club night, Progression.

You can currently hear Johnny on his monthly radio show, The Headfunk Sessions, broadcast on Meattransmission Radio, or you could check out his Bank Of Switches mix.

***Hubie:
Originaly hailing from New Zealand Hubie leapt headfirst into the London clubbing and Djing scene getting the opportunity to play his first proper gig in 2007 at the Medicine Bar (now Trapeeze) in Shoreditch, warming up for the Freestylers. The party was a great success and lead to many more, playing in bars and clubs all over the UK alongside and supporting DJ lumanaries such as Jack Beats, Evil Nine, Cut La Roc, Herve, Sub Focus, A-Skillz, Soul Of Man, General Midi, Hyper, Plaza de Funk, Cut La Roc, Peo de Pitte and Ben & Lex to name but a few.

Hugh isn't just a club DJ, he also hosts a regular radio show, Hubie Sounds, on the multi award-winning internet radio station NSB Radio. His show is broadcast live twice a month on Tuesday nights, playing to a wide audience from across the UK and around the world. It's on the airwaves that Hubie's eclectic tastes shine through, playing all sorts from house to breaks, techno to garage, hip hop to tech-funk, soul to rock and roll.

A resident at Palace Beats & a regular behind the wheels of steel at Bank Of Switches, we're chuffed to have this genuine party starter back on the bill. Expect an expert blend of four to the floor sonics to kick your Saturday night off in style. You won't be disapointed.

***Big Nick D:
It was in deepest darkest Somerset, south west England, sometime in the early 90's when Nick first encountered dance music. He has vague, blurry memories of ten foot high speaker stacks, muddy fields & purple ohms. He discovered groove, bass & positivity. A good time being had by all.

Over twenty years later these things remain the cornerstones of Nick's DJ sets. Since the heady days of Somerset, Nick has worked among many aspects of dance music, from independent record shops in Camden to London's legendary nightclubs fabric & The End. He even did a stint at a vinyl distribution company & ran a record label for over a decade. Perhaps it's this wide knowledge base that keeps his DJ sets fresh, incorporating a range of genres that keeps the crowd on its toes.

From bass heavy grooves to tight techy house, via stomping techno & future disco, Nick's scope is far & wide. He's had guest slots on radio stations including Ministry Of Sound Radio, Hoxton FM & Brap FM. He's been on the same bill as many big name DJs including Scratch Perverts, Daddy G, Cut La Roc, Terry Francis, Jem Haynes, Doorly, Evil Nine, Normski & Shy Fx as well as having residencies at Versus, Tune Up & Bass[sic]. One of Nick's mixes charted at number 35 in Beatport's top 100 DJ mixes & recently he narrowly missed the top slot in the LWE DJ competition.
