NUMA CREW - Florence junglist massive
Numa Crew is a collective of djs, producers and one mc, pioneers of the Italian dubstep scene and one of the landmarks of the national independent music scene.
Their musical research focuses on bass music, with influences that range from sound system culture, to hip hop and UK underground music.
The collective, founded in 2005 in Florence, starts releasing several 12" vinyl for the label Elastica collaborating with artists such as Zion Train and Dub Sync.
Later the crew creates Erba Records, a white label principally devoted to reggae-dubstep, D'n'B and Jungle sounds, which is flanked by two other discographic projects, Voodoo Rebel and Digital Smokerz, exploring all contaminations of global bass music.
Meanwhile, they release on many other national and international labels such as EMI Italy, Liondub Inernational, Moonshine Records, Irish Moss Records, NoMad Records and Convoy Unltd, and collaborate with many artists including Dub FX, Daddy Freddy, Horace Andy, General Levy & Bonnot, Kwality (LNRipley), Almamegretta, Subsonica, Casino Royale, Taiwan MC, MC Coppa, Squarewave & Doctor, Dirty Dubsters & Turbulence, Illbilly Hitech, DIGI, Ckrono & Slesh, Antiplastic and more.
Numa Crew performs regularly in Italy and often across national borders, sharing the stage with the main acts of the international scene.
Their music is supported on radio networks such as BBC Radio 1,Rinse FM, Kool FM and they have been broadcasting live on SubFM for three years, sharing a radio show with their friend and collaborator DJ Foster. The first album "New Underground Massive Alliance" has been released on Liondub International (November 2014) featuring Dub FX, Mr. Lexx, MC Kwality and many more. Lately in 2015, they've been releasing the Dub Searcher EP on 12" vinyl for Moonshine Recordings and more fresh material will come out in the end of the year!
