As the VOID crew prepares for a summer of world class Dubstep acts to hit our shores, our November show is set to start the summer vibe off in style. Tes La Rok is the man responsible for some of the biggest tunes in Dubstep and is well sought after DJ on the international circuit. He makes his first trip to Australia in November and kicks off his tour in Sydney on Friday November 7th.
Tes La Rok is a Dubstep DJ & music producer from Helsinki, Finland. He was one of the first international producers to make a mark in the Dubstep scene a few years ago. Tes has been featured on a variety of respected compilations such as Steppas Delight on Soul Jazz Records, Dubstep Allstars on Tempa, Mary-Anne Hobbs "Evangeline" on Planet Mu and Mixmag 25 years anniversary mix (mixed by Laurent Garnier). He is also the man behind record label 'Noppa Recordings'.
For the past decade Tes La Rok has been one of the pioneers in Helsinki underground music culture by holding various raves such as 'Slam It', 'Soulfuel', 'Back 2 Bass' & 'Sub'.
His first ever release was on respected "Audio Couture" (sister label of Moving Shadow) label back in 1998 - under Dice moniker with his partner in crime Dharma1. Shortly after Dharma1 introduced Tes to UK garage & Broken-beat which would later inform his take on and the foundations of the Dubstep genre.
Tes La Rok released "Around The World Girls remix" in 2007 and it immediately received anthem status and was later selected as the best Dubstep tune of 2007(alongside Mala's Lean Forward) on Dubstepforum awards. He has DJ appearances in the UK at clubs such as DMZ, FWD, SUBDUB, PLATFORM 1. Along with his regular UK shows Tes La Rok has also played at all the big raves in Germany, USA, Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal and Croatia to name a few.
Tes La Rok is supported by another red hot local line-up with Sub Bass Snarl making their return to the VOID lineup, expect the unexpected from these guys. Westernsynthetics is also back, fresh after his stellar performance at the Sound Summit Festival recently. Residents Victim and Garage Pressure will be dropping the freshest beats on the planet and local producer Twitch brings his diverse selection of skanking basslines and local beats. The one like Ozi Batla is back keeping the vocal vibes in check.
