Our first session in 2020 is bringing the infamous Dj Youngsta and Sgt. Pokes in Bucharest, at club Expirat on the 30th of January. The lineup is competed by Low Freq W/ Mc Vapor and Concept (SubGiurgiu crew). 

Dj Youngsta

As one of the pivotal figureheads in dubstep since its inception, Youngsta has spent the better part of his life dedicated to the genre; from picking up DJ-ing at the age of 12 and working at the influential Black Market Records to putting out some of the dubstep's earliest records and playing at scene-defining club nights FWD>> and DMZ as their resident DJ.

Youngsta’s career within dubstep spans as far back as the creation of the genre itself, as he first played some of the genre's most beloved and historic anthems while rubbing shoulders with the likes of fellow pioneers such as Skream, Benga and Hatcha.

Fast forward from his earlier days helping shape and mold the core of the dubstep genre itself and Youngsta only continues to play a hugely active role in dubstep's current development. With his frequent appearances on Rinse FM, releases on Tempa, Osiris and Wheel & Deal and the creation of his own imprint, Sentry Records, Youngsta is constantly seen solidifying his rightful place as a figurehead for a new generation of producers. It’s clear that Youngsta’s enthusiasm for the music hasn’t flagged after all this time immersed in the dubstep scene, as he’s continued to push his sound forward.

Sgt. Pokes
If there’s one constant voice that’s navigated us through dubstep’s murkiest lows and maddest highs, it’s Pokes. The Sarge to you and most. Croydon born and bred and a founding member of DMZ, head of Croydub and official MC for Skream and Magnetic Man, Pokes’ prints are all over the genre’s genus, consistently supporting the sound, bringing the community together for almost 20 years.
