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. Borne 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 Om Unit, Doc Scott, Special Request, Digital, and Spirit.
