    Sónar by Night - SonarLab

Bass power trio

t q d are Royal-T, DJ Q y Flava D; three of the most important producers in British garage and bass music. Seperately each of them have carved out a solid career and reputation on the scene, but by pooling their talents they have created an even greater resonance than we could have hoped for. Together they will offer one of the most explosive sets of Sónar 2017, as part of the program curated by Resident Advisor at SonarLab: instrumental grime from the past and present, garage classics and 2Step, new bass house anthems, exclusive dubplates and bangers that spontaneously provoke the need to dance compulsively. Mark Taylor has been releasing grime and garage bombs for almost a decade as Royal-T, and has released new material on key labels from the English underground such as Butterz or Rinse. DJ Q was the youngest DJ to have his own show on BBC Radio 1Xtra, which denotes the high standard of his sets and his commitment to the bass community. He has released two albums, the last of which, "Ineffable", on Local Action, boasts having created one of the bassline scene's most breath-taking hits, "You Wot!" Next to MC Bonez, Flava D is probably the most influential and relevant woman in the entire scene, with two different releases on Butterz (two separate collaborations with her colleagues from tqd) and several grime and bass music hits that bring her own personal touch closer to pop and house music.
