Bassbutcherz AKA Craig Frodsham & Dominic Kanter are the freshest hardstyle duo to hit the scene. The name came from how they started off doing edits of hardstyle tracks – chopping (or Butchering) out the melodies to maintain a throbbing bassline throughout the set. Making their debut at Sector 9 in July 2009 Since then it’s been none stop for them, playing big gigs such as H.T.I.D, Bionic, Ravers Reunited, Energy Island Festival & Clinic, this is just a few of many. They have played at events alongside some of the biggest names in hardstyle, such as Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Showtek, Daniele Mondelo, Kutski and Activator.
These two thrive of the underground club scene and their passion for hardstyle rubs off on the crowd leaving an energetic vibe amongst the dance floor. Their style is unique, featuring lots of reverse bass, the hardest hardstyle no cheesy or over-the-top melodies. Their unique bond on the decks is unstoppable – these 2 djs aim to please and their sets are never to be missed! In early 2010 with 3 of their good friends they decided to start a Manchester hardstyle / gabber based night called QUARANTINE, which has had success in booking some big names in international Hardstyle and Gabber.
As their love for hardstyle keeps on growing they felt like they needed to expand their love and started producing there own tracks towards the end of 2009. Their talent as producers was first recognised in late 2009 when they were signed to o.p.m. recordings which is owned by the uk biggest hardstyle duo – The Yofridiz. Since then alongside other Quarantine promoters they have created their own record label – Quarantined Recordings, where their debut track Quarantine Anthem- Bassbutcherz Remix reached no 1 in the hardstyle top 100 on track it down! At the start of 2011 the duo have been really busy in the studio producing many new tracks so watch this space!
