Stanton Warriors, aka Dominic Butler and Mark Yadley, are a major force in the breakbeat big league. Hailing from the West Country in England, they met whilst working for early UK garage label 51st Recordings, where Dominic was working as an A&R man, and Mark as an engineer. They dived into a free studio together, started working on a track and sparks flew. That was around 1997, and in the ten plus years since they’ve developed into among breaks most esteemed names. The turning point was their track ‘Da Virus’ on Tayo’s Mob Recordings which saw them explode onto the breaks scene and sparked a chain reaction which saw them become some of the most in-demand remixers in the business. In the years since, they’ve added their bumps and basslines to everybody from Basement Jaxx and Fatboy Slim to Mylo and Gorillaz and many more. They’ve also released two highly acclaimed albums. ‘The Stanton Sessions’ showcasing their distinct style and abilities perfectly, with a cross section of party styles all underlined by their inimitable breaks sound , which went on to become the biggest selling breaks album of all time. In 2006, they released the awesome second instalment of ‘The Stanton Sessions’ on V2 which was backed with a second disc ‘The Lost Files’. Later that year, they released a mix album for the ‘Fabric:Live’ series, which inevitably went on to become one of the series biggest sellers. Now releasing their original tracks and remixes through the legendary Skint, as well as their own label Punks, the boys remain among the very biggest names in breaks and beyond, and a massive draw on the DJ circuit.
