BUMP LAUNCH PARTY x FRIDAYS AT PLAN B

Remember the days when going out used to be fun? Music you knew, people you liked, that whole thing? These days it feels like the only choice for a night out is either an over priced West End club (complete with big scary bouncers and orange skinned WAGs), or that slightly pretentious thing the kids with funny hair do in East London. What happened to getting your drink on at your local spot and skanking out to your favourite tunes?

Well, we are bringing the fun back to South London, with our new weekly jam – BUMP! From the illest urban sounds, to proper old school music. From hip hop and R&B, to dancehall and dubstep, even a bit of house and garage!

Every week we will be doing something a bit different, with some of London’s best new artists, producers and DJs passing through over the coming weeks and months.

To start things off with a bump, we have invited the amazing Sophy Robson (Vogue Magazine) to do free nails for the girls (10pm to 12am) every Friday for the first month. We will also have loads of giveaways, surprise PAs and champagne raffles every week, because we’re nice like that.

9PM – 4AM / FREE BEFORE 10PM, £5 AFTER / FACEBOOK GROUP

ALI SHAHEED MUHAMMAD x HOMEBOY SANDMAN (LIVE)

The Doctors Orders are back with another fine line up for their first On The Real of the year on Friday 21st January. Not only have they bagged A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammand representing the golden era of hip hop but they also have a live PA from underground rising star – Homeboy Sandman. Underground hip hop movement End Of The Weak in NYC have been showing him a lot of love and with three albums under his belt  and The Source featuring him in their Unsigned Hype column as one to watch, this will be the perfect opportunity to see what he has up his sleeve.

Here his is on stage with Souls Of Mischeif, Rakim and Black Thought (The Roots)…

Download a free mix from Ali Shaheed here.

There are limited early bird tickets so get in quick.

TODD TERJE X RBMA

We were blown away when we saw Todd Terje play at the Red Bull Music Academy edition of Secretsundaze earlier in the year. This was partly due to the party being held at Paramount,  which is set on the 32nd floor of the Centre Point building on Tottenham Court Road, but also because the Norwegian disco boy wonder played an absoulute belter of a set.

Red Bull took the time to record the set (which from our recent experiences isn’t always the most straight forward thing to get right) and have made it available here.

Advance tickets for Todd Terje’s show at Plan B can be found here.

DAYS LIKE THAT X LOCAL ACTION

This Friday we have a special collab party between Days Like That and Local Action featuring a stellar lineup (Noodles, Deadboy, Funkystepz, Fis-T and DJ Para.)  Days Like That rep the old late 90’s 2step garage sounds of artists like Groove Chronicles, DEA Project and Dem 2 whilst Local Action push the hybrid future garage funky sound as demonstrated in their few first releases from Svpreme Fiend and T Williams.

For your listening pleasure we have some old and some new below, plus Friday’s headliner Noodle’s excellent FACT mix.

ON (SOUND) CLOUD 9

Late night web trawling lost our boy Ben a lot of sleep but he did manage to unearth this gem of a Soundcloud account. Featuring over 150 pages of set rips from all your favourite DJs this is essential listening. Everything from Larry Levan at Ministry of Sound in ’91 to Ben Klock at Berghain the other day.

DBRIDGE x INSTRA:MENTAL

DBridge track – ‘Blush Response’ featuring Instra:mental has become something of a summer anthem for the last two years, after being released on his stunning debut album – The Gemini Principle in June 2008 for Exit Records.

This timeless beauty, devoid of genre, should put Instra:mental and DBridge’s Autonomic label and pristine production ethics high on any music lovers scale.

Autonomic podcasts available here.

PATRICE SCOTT (DETROIT) x THE SECRET AGENCY
