MEET THE CREW
Torque founder, promoter, resident DJ and designer, Kevin Harrell, aka Circle K, has been championing drum & bass for 20 years. As Torque's original resident DJ, Circle K has mastered the art of warming up the crowd for some of the biggest names in d&b. With his long, smooth blends, quick cuts and seamless transitions from liquid to rollers to anthems and back, Circle K is a dj's dj and crowd favorite—whether opening at Torque or headlining elsewhere.
Co-founder of Torque and original resident MC and DJ, Damian Roman, aka Collaborator, has been hyping the crowd at Torque from day one. Drawing from his past as a metal band frontman, Collaborator brings a vibe like no other on the mic—a fusion of flows, growls, crowd hyping and even some crooning here and there. In addition to MCing and DJing, Collaborator also produces his own tunes solo and together with Aaron Bond as Synchronaria.
A regular guest DJ at Torque for years, Bradleeray, aka BLR, officially joined the Torque crew as a resident DJ in 2017. Prior to focusing his energy on his new role at Torque, BLR threw a monthly drum & bass night called Bass Line Research for about three and a half years. BLR's sound can best be described as upfront funk, as he effortlessly blurs the lines between liquid funk, bass-heavy rollers and dancefloor bangers.
The most seasoned beat maker of the crew, Aaron Bond is a beast in the producer's seat. His original tracks are laced with crisp, cracking drums, moving melodies and clean punchy bass lines. And his own bootleg d&b remixes of pop tunes are such bangers his nickname within the crew is 'Bootleg Bond.' He's a beast of a DJ as well, flawlessly dropping big, sexy, bass-heavy dancefloor fillers every time he throws down in the Torque chamber.
The newest crew member/resident DJ, Art Legere, aka The Amen Bros., brings fresh thinking and even fresher beats to Torque. His sets are lessons in technical mixing, tune selection and crowd control via an arsenal of bleeding edge dubs. And his introduction of live streaming to our night has helped us gain even more d&b fans around the world. When he's not dropping beats or running streams, Art tours the world playing bass in his band bloodlet.
