Known for her deep, emotive sets that push the boundaries of drum and bass while still paying homage to its foundation, Mantra brings an intense passion into her selection, striking just the right balance between dark and uplifting. Having played in clubs across London and Europe, Mantra’s talent, skill and passion for promoting diversity in dance music have landed her features in both DJ Mag and Mixmag. Far more than just a DJ and producer, Mantra’s work developing, curating, and promoting the Rupture brand, as a label and as Jungle’s premier event, speak to how deeply drum and bass culture influences her life. Community work has played a vital role in her life and in December 2018 she started the initiative EQ50 to mentor and support women within the heavily male-dominated drum and bass genre. Rupture’s continued growth and success, built with her partner Double O, are a testament to Mantra’s dedication to the junglist movement. Born from a desire to take club nights back to basics, Rupture has built over the past 12 years to form what is now recognized as London’s best underground D&B night. With original line-ups that combine forward-thinking up-and-comers with jungle legends, Mantra and Double O’s hard work and regular appearances on Rinse FM have seen Rupture move from a party into a seminal label, supported by the likes of OmUnit, DocScott, Special Request, Digital, and Spirit. After releasing a string of singles across D&B’s most acclaimed underground labels (supported by d bridge, Loxy, Flight, Storm and many others), Mantra is set to embark on a North American tour at the end of 2018, continuing to pushthings forward with her original style and passion. Current releases on: Rupture LDN, Repertoire, UVB-76, AKO
