Defence is proud to present its biggest lineup yet: Utah Jazz (UK) and Recue X Jolea LIVE at mbar.

Having just released his third album 'Groove Therapy', which Mixmag awarded the title of "Album of the Month" in June 2012, and touring extensively around the globe, the legendary Utah Jazz is one of the most sought-after Drum & Bass djs at the moment. This doesn't come as a surprise, as Utah Jazz is responsible for some of the biggest hooks in Drum & Bass, enjoying constant chart success and is supported by BBC Radio 1 djs and club djs like LTJ Bukem, Fabio, High Contrast and London Elektricity. As well as being a successful producer, Utah Jazz is a three-deck double drop dj extraordinaire who will be performing a funk-fueled rolling and uplifting dj set like no other.

The night will also feature the Finnish premier of Recue X Jolea LIVE. After releasing a video on Vimeo titled "Do Not Disturb", Recue was instantly put on the map of the Finland's most prominent electronic live acts. "Do Not Disturb" was also recognized in multiple online music publications like Sonic State and Create Digital Music. After recently joining forces with the producer / singer / songwriter Jolea, the duo have been constantly touring across the world and now for the first time performing live at mbar. The combined set brings together the best of both worlds: Jolea’s stellar vocals and reflective songwriting with Recue’s spacious sound design and detailed pounding beat work. The atmospheric otherwordly soundscapism and electroacoustic textures that are key elements to both of their work are there, but the result is more up paced with a bass heavy dancefloor emphasis. It’s an interesting mixture of eyesdown melodic electronica and plastered thumping beats drifting in and out of double/half stepped syncopation.
