Bio, written by Wil Benton
"Few facts about the origins of dubstep are widely accepted - but a few stand out in my mind as certainties. The fact that the sound originated from South London. The fact that the sound we know and love grew from the intersection of genres like dub/ reggae, grime and garage (to name a few) and the UK's Jamaican soundsystem culture.
“It's the latter that strikes me as the most important when listening to three Dutch producers who make music under 'The Illuminated' moniker. Dyzz, Rebus and Vence’s music reminds me of the early days of dubstep - with inspiration drawn from the same places as the sound’s forefathers. The trio may have only been producing together for a few years, but they’re quick on their way to joining the likes of Noisia, Icicle, Proxima and TMSV as internationally known and respected Dutch bass music producers.
“I’ve been working with the trio since hearing ‘Scavenger’, one of their first productions caught the attention of Skream and Benga on Radio 1. Support from other big names quickly followed with the likes of Joe Nice, who’s often quick to rewind many an Illuminated tune, Wheel & Deal's N-Type and Biscuit Factory Records' Walsh lining up to support The Illuminated’s music.
“The next few months are a promising time for Yuri, Joep and Maarten. Since the early days and Radio 1 support, The Illuminated have released on Mu Djina, Underslung Audio, Iron Shirt Recordings and FatKidOnFire’s first compilation album, FKOFUn/Known01. ‘Scavenger’ also recently appeared on New Moon, alongside the brilliant TMSV remix, forming what was the first - but definitely won’t be the last - Illuminated vinyl release. The trio have a number of releases lined up for 2014, with an astounding new EP due out in March.
“International bookings will see Dyzz, Rebus and Vence take The Illuminated on a Poland tour, as well as their first ever visit to the UK later this year, bringing The Illuminated's take on a British - but global - sound to its birthplace for the first time. I, for one, can't wait."
