Bad Habits presents: T-Menace & Mandidextrous! + Function 1 Rig!
Bad Habits is Back With a Bang!
A twisted fusion of Hardtek and Jungle/Drum & Bass, kicked in your face at 190bpm may be how T-Menace rolls now, but his journey in music was moulded through a melting pot of influences, clearly present through his anthology of original productions and infectiously catchy bootlegs.
Cutting his teeth as a Drum & Bass DJ, his production prowess was forged in East London until he was inducted into the Amen4Tekno syndicate. 2013 saw his debut drum & bass releases such as ‘Stronger Than Me’ met with thunderous adulation online and saw him invited by Mandidextrous to release his first EP on Amen4Tekno records.
This, in turn, has led him to sets at some of the UK’s biggest underground music festivals such as Boomtown Fair and Balter Festival and touring the UK and the rest of Europe to countries such as Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and France amongst many others.
With more than 50 tracks released now across a number of underground record labels including Amen4Tekno, Kaotik, 5Dan Records and Underground Tekno in addition to high-profile dubplate remixes with the likes of fellow Amen4Tekno compatriots Mandidextrous, C3B and Raggatek icon Vandal, T-Menace has found himself cemented as a leading figure in the UK Hardtek scene and one of the leading prospects amongst the underbelly of the global rave community.
Her music combines serious kick bass with amen breaks. Mashing the love of Tekno and Jungle into one massive sound. Invoking a nostalgic feeling on the dance floor with such classic sample selection. She always seems to hit the nail on the head when you are waiting for that one tune or set to take you out of your mind for one second, dancing in a perfect kick bass alternate universe. Well if you are there Mandi is on the decks representing.
Named The Jungletek Queen by her fans, Mandidextrous is truly an inspirational producer and performer. The real driving force behind Amen4tekno with all the creative ideas behind the label and the sound. A pioneer in the genre of Jungletek she is a delight to watch on the decks with full throttle energy from start to finish. With an infectious passion for music Mandi has become a well known and followed producer. Not only by music lovers but fellow producers thus forming the Jungletek Mafia. Possessing the power to make dance floors kick off you will rarely find a seated person in the house when Mandi drops her tracks. Over the years Mandi has managed to balance her personal ups and downs with transgender life and focused on putting her emotions into her music. Connecting on all levels to the music and with the listeners. With real fire in her gut and drive in her heart Mandi is leading the Jungletek Mafia to bigger and badder dance floors around the world.
