DJ line up in order:

- Lo Key
A DJ first, turntablist and record collector, DJ Lo Key has been DJing in the Auckland club scene and still is, since the mid '80s.

His musical style/signature is second to none. Since listening to music from a very young age his style has developed into a mixture of soul, the breaks, hip hop and The Future Love Soul Movement.

"I am always listening to good records from the past, present and future". I've always loved DJing and I can't think of any reason why I'd want to stop now.

- Jason Howson
It was while watching drum and bass DJ Grooverider blending songs together on tour in the early 1990s that Jason Howson knew he wanted to become a DJ. Shortly after, he bought himself a set of turntables and began spinning records. From there he hasn't flinched.

Over the years, Howson has created a legacy of residencies, club nights and releases which helped pioneer 2 step, UK Garage & Grime In New Zealand. More recently he has become a leading proponent in the burgeoning dubstep scene.

2009 monsters on a devoted audience, with pod cast statistics topping 30,000 plays. The shows rates in the top 5 for audiences listening in their region & time slot.

Howson has owned & operated Beat Merchants, an online urban culture store based in Auckland for the last 5 years. The company’s events arm has been responsible in several key dubstep promotions that have help exemplify New Zealand's obsession for the dubstep sound.

- Chel Santamaria (Upseta)
Upseta (Chel Santamaria) first got into drum and bass after experiencing Dillinja and Lemon D on their "Big Bad Bass" tour of New Zealand in 2002. One year later he had built a studio and jumped straight into producing beats! As he was completely inspired by the huge rib cage rattling bass pressure Dillinja had become famous for, his style of production soon followed similar patterns and he began to produce low frequency reaching tunes one after the other over the years. Known for his love of vinyl and the warm sound associated with real dubs.

"On the night I'll be playing a mix of deep, liquid, reggae, dub, soul, funk and jazz influenced drum 'n' bass."

Copious Beats is a DJ collective and party night, established in East London – May 2010, aimed at bringing you a night of progressive beats in a mixed crowd of like-minded individuals.

Spearheaded by DBnine (NZ), Upseta (NZ) and Slam (LT), the party was born from our minds, our motivations and our love for playing a diverse range of music. Founded heavily on soul, funk, hip-hop, dubstep and D’n’B the party and collective has now grown to boast a night of full spectrum eclectic tastes and talented performers who are ready to take you on a journey through (but not limited to) the seductive flavours of down tempo, the grooves of soul, the edge of broken beat, the glow of funk and consciousness hip-hop leading you into the dirtier, heavier and faster tempos of ragga/nu breaks, garage, ground shakin’ dubstep, full spectrum D’n'B and the ol’school of jungle along with anything gets your heart pounding, feet moving and your bass face on!

The energy is vibrant, the people are beat junkies and the music is copious.
