so, yeah a while ago my friend asked me to DJ at one of his forthcoming events @ amersham arms with Skepta. i was like 'fuck yeah!' that sounds good.
and then like 2 months down the line i get invited to the event on facebook - and it looks even better. the lineup i mean; skepta, plastician, reecha, blaise bellville, square roots dj etc
im thinking SICK. ..but there is a little blurb after each artist and all is well.. but then the one for us reads:
"Local South London electronica outfit are in for the DJ duties."
sayy what?!?! i thought we deserved a bit more than that tbh. i mean all the bigger guys were getting quite juicy paragraphs and such and i thought we were rinsed. so i messaged the guy saying could we get a bit more :)
* watch this space to see how this unfolds..
heres the link to the facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=66164540322&ref=nf
After our last outing down the Amersham in May with Jimmy Edgar and Si Begg, we're back again with one beast of a line up...
Skepta (BOY BETTER KNOW) - Live
North London's Skepta is one of the hardest working men in Grime. Starting out as a DJ, he quickly moved on to pick up the mic and then production. With his brother JME, and 'Godfather of Grime' Wiley, he started Grime's most successful label, BOY BETTER KNOW. By now you surely know his notorious 'Rolex Sweep' tune and probably the dance that goes with it.
Plastician (Rinse FM/Terrorhythm) - DJ Set
Plastician made his name mashing up the sounds of East London Grime and South London Dubstep. He's produced tracks for much of the grime royalty, and after a long stint as Radio 1's Dubstep/Grime correspondent, he's back at home on London's finest pirate station, Rinse FM. We're really hyped to have him not long after the release of his debut album 'Beg to Differ', on his own label Terrorhythm Recordings.
With support from:
Blaise Belleville (Joyride)
London promoter Blaise Belville made his name organising the massive All Age Concerts, and the awesome Joyride dances, but he's also a sick as DJ. Playing a heavy mix of ragga, dubstep, garage and whatever else he fancies slipping in, he regularly has dancefloors skanking all over London.
Reecha (Dirty Canvas)
Dirty Canvas organiser/Ruffhousing resident Reecha will be representing the East London sounds.
Eric Multiplex (Square Roots)
Not much is know about Brighton's Eric Multiplex, except he likes films and plays a raw mix of classic 2-step, grime and that's about it...
My Panda Shall Fly DJs
Local South London electronica outfit are in for the DJ duties.
