ASIAN HAWK 5 x DMC UK champion ''Beat supremo Asian Hawk'' - is one of the most original turntablists operating in the world today.

Asian Hawk and The Disablists are the most exciting and innovative DJ crew in the UK right now. Notorious for winning the prestigious UK DMC Team championships four years in a row as well as the solo crown in 2006 .

Their unique, highly visual, style has seen them perform twice on UK National TV (Blue Peter and The Paul O’Grady Show), and support a diverse range of artists, including; Rahzell, Guru from Gangstarr (RIP), Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, GZA from the Wu Tang, Akil from Jurassic 5 and DJ YODA.

Recently having their Bestival mix favorited by none other than Rob Da Bank, led to the crew headlining Bestivals Club DADA, as well as being the first act on stage at the refurbished HMV Ritz Manchester, supporting Dan Le Sac vs Scroobious Pip. In their live shows they use their incredible turntable skills to create breath taking mashup sets that incorporate everything from oldskool Funk and Hip Hop, to Dubtep and Electronica.

Last year they released their debut EP featuring Foreign Beggars to critical acclaim, with more releases including mixtapes, videos and singles to come this year you can expect to hear more great things from this talented bunch. Radio appearances have included regular sets on 1Xtra (Semtex, Ras Kwame 100% homegrown) as well as a set on Big Ted and Shortee blitz's show on Kiss FM.
