The Disablists: are the UK's top turntablists, recently DMC International Finalists, blending Hip Hop, Drum and Bass, Reggae, Ska, Soul, Funk and Motown into smooth flows. With five turntables and three mixers, they piece together original hooks and remix well-known anthems for blinding sets. Something could maybe done about which decks they use/prefer.

Funkstylerz: Handpicked from the underground streetdance scene, both in the UK and worldwide, Funkstylerz are the UK's no. 1 BBoy & Hip Hop Dance Company - a break-dance company that incorporates the original street dances of breaking, popping and locking. Together & individually, Funkstylerz have performed worldwide with artists such as Sean Paul, Gwen Stefani, Busta Rhymes & Madonna, never failing to create & amaze an audience with versatile and explosive performances.

Flawless: Current Street Dance Weekend UK Champions, Flawless were most recently crowned the International Champions at the 2005 Street Dance Weekend International Championships USA v UK event which saw them take on the AmountBoyz from the US.

Shlomo: has had huge success with Foreign Beggars and is now working along with other UK beatbox talents such as Faith SFX and Killa Kela to break the limits of beatboxing. DJ Excalibah described a Shlomo show he saw as "the most fantastic exhibition of beatboxing ever", "it's some serious musical composition, from hip-hop to breaks and drum n bass; well worthy of the standing ovation he got at the end of his set." SOS Magazine, Issue 6.

Urban Strides: are an exciting and vibrant hip hop dance company. They have performed with '50 Cent', 'Kanye West', and 'Pharrell Williams' to name a few. 2006 sees Urban Strides Dance Troupe performing alongside Lemar (Brit Winner) at the Charity opening of 'Daddy Cool - The Musical'. Their on-stage energy, and dynamic choreography always keep audiences on the edge of their seats..they have to be seen to be believed!
