Situation are a collective of seasoned DJ's, musicians & producers from the South West of England, all sharing the same vision & passion for music. The core group consists of Mr Mulatto, Ben Vacara, Paul Walker, Dom Thompson, James Payne and vocalists - Lauren Rimmel & Andre Espeut.

Many of their unique mash ups, edits and remixes have found their way to lighting fires on many dance floors, and been acclaimed & played by a whole host of DJ's worldwide.
