The Breakbeat and Drum and Bass group Antiform (Josh, Luke and Brendon) are creating a storm overflowing across the Tasman. Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, the boys have armed themselves with epic, bass-driven, melodic riffs and a floor storming live show that sends crowds into a feeding frenzy. You’ll find synths, samplers, wicked scratching and maybe even some live guitar at any of their shows. They are among the first picked to headline any major festival (Future Music, Phat08 NYE, Summerdayze, Godskitchen, Our House, Slinky, Groove in the Park, Highlife Entertainment and more) that come to town, because they are guaranteed crowd winners.
Josh & Luke Purcell met Brendon Spain through the mid 90's on the national DJ circuit before combining their talents to create Antiform in 2002. Their first track 'Lardass' in 2003 was released on the Kog Transmissions compilation ‘Return of the Booomshwack’ mixed by Timmy Schumacher. 'Sweeper'
was then released on The Grey Lynn Park Festival CD, a sampler of the biggest bands who play at the annual 5,000 strong event. Their track 'Alone'
with vocalist Tamara Brons, create a cheeky stir in 2006. It was accompanied by a steamy, sweaty, cheerleader-filled video (dubbed as New Zealand's version of the Benny Benassi’s 'Satisfaction'!) which barely passed censorship! It is a regular feature on national music TV including Juice, C4 and Alt TV. It was just the beginning with regular appearances performing on Music TV shows to follow.
