Having regrouped after the first Liminal sounds night in June we are returning to Rhythm Factory with an even bigger lineup, linking up with the Get Some crew to explore some completely different musical avenues with a host of our favourite artists.
Check the facebook event here.
We are very proud to announce that the one and only Trim will be headlining in Room One with DJ Begg. Ten mixtapes deep, he shows no signing of slowing down any time soon, remaining one of the most prolific, consistent and unique MCs of our generation. His inimitable flow, deft wordplay and dry humour are always on point and with an album in the works he is on the top of his game. Unafraid to experiment, recent collaborations with the likes of Becoming Real, Mark Pritchard and Starkey have birthed great results.
Damu was the first artist to contribute to the burgeoning Liminal Sounds mix series, and has continued to impress us ever since. He has quickly made an indelible mark on the scene with his hyperkinetic, luminous productions, winning praise from the likes of Fact and XLR8R. Having already dropped releases on Local Action and Silverback, he has further releases set for Blackdown’s revered Keysound imprint and Swing & Skip. He has also been working on some material with Trim, so keep your ear to the ground for that to surface.
MIK is another MC who is consistently exciting and always does his own thing. The Family Tree affiliated MC has been in the game for a while and having honed his sound to a tee he is in charge of one of sharpest flows in grime. He has worked with an impressive array of producers that includes Kahn, Faze Miyake and Spooky to name a few. Watch out for more new material from him soon.
Visionist’s fresh brand of deadly 808 bass music has quickly caught the ear of many, and one listen to his releases on 92 Points and the Tokyo-based Diskotopia imprint will be all the explanation you need. With further releases scheduled on Throwing Snow’s Left_Blank label and Oneman’s burgeoning 502 imprint, his stock is undoubtedly going to continue rising.
Poland-born, London-dwelling Venice Calypso makes club music at its most potent. Powerful, energetic and just brash enough to ensure it grabs your attention, his music wriggles through the speakers with enough impact and groove to distract you from the inherent oddity of its combating sonics, idiosyncratic melodies and skittering, overloaded rhythms in a way reminiscent of the halcyon days of instrumental grime. His heavy tribal drum patterns and wired synth hooks immediately stand out with his inimitable sonic stamp.
We are also extremely pleased to be presenting the night in collaboration with Get Some, the crew behind the brilliant blog of the same name who are preparing to unleash the debut release on their newly minted label as we speak. Since the blog’s inception in Autumn 2009, they have endeavoured to showcase the best UK underground talent, pushing good music irrespective of genre, and will be bringing this open-minded and forward-thinking attitude to the label.
Get Some will be hosting Room 2 with a special lineup of friends and affiliates that we are extremely excited about. The Get Some DJs will be joined by 2nd Drop Records, the label responsible for a series of brilliant releases from the likes of Ramadanman, Clouds, Sully, Duncan Powell and LV.
On the lineup will also be Brighton-based producer Eagles For Hands, who is behind the inaugural release on the label with his eponymous EP of nuanced and textured bass mutations and Crypt, a producer whose star is most definitely in the ascendant and has recently joined the Get Some stable.
Resident Elsewhere will be warming up on the night.
