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

JAMES BLAKE x DEBUT LIVE SHOW

Any discerning music fan couldn’t have missed the meteoric rise of post dubstep pioneer James Blake. The South London resident was responsible for some of the most forward thinking productions last year through trailblazing imprints such as R & S Records and Hessle Audio.

His highly anticipated album drops in February and to support the release James has prepared a full live band. Showcased will be his jazz, electronic and soul influences not to mention a stunning tenor voice, with its first unveiling here at Plan B on Friday 14th January.

As you can imagine this event has received some serious hype and has completely sold out, although there will be limited tickets on the door for £15. This is a live show so the doors will be opening earlier than usual at 8pm.

NEW FRIDAYS X JAM HOT

From now on Fridays will be going by the name Jam Hot.

Every week you can expect an across the board mix of hip hop (old and new), party jams, 2 step garage and dubstep.

In October we have the likes of Kon & Amir, Funkineven, Harry Love, DJ MK and Mr Thing, with support from some of London’s very best collectives (Bounty, Yo Mama, etc), a live broadcast for The Funhouse and at the end fo the month we have  a massive Deadly Rhythm Halloween special… with forward thinking dubstep and heavyweight bass from Swamp 81 boss Loefah, Werk boss Actress and South London’s answer to J Dilla – Morgan Zarate, as well as a live show from the Hyperdub signed Darkstar.

It is free entry every week until 10pm. Check the website for more info.

BENNY ILL X DEEP MEDI

Not only is a new Horsepower Production album rumoured to be coming out on Tempa but Benny Ill is dropping a record on Mala’s excellent Deep Medi Musik. Listen to the track and check the crazy ass video.

Here is some classic Horsepower for you too:

QUEST x DEEP MEDI


‘Smooth Skin’ by Quest just dropped on Mala’s Deep Medi Musik label.

The track is a departure from his forward thinking dubstep style, which he has perfected with production partner Silkie.

Quest plays Deviation on Wednesday 4th August. He shares the bill with Actress and Benji B.

DOLDRUMS

We are hearing rumours that Joy Orbison’s imprint Doldrums may be preparing a new twelve inch for release after the Summer.

The label has had a limited output since it’s inception in 2009, but has been hugely influential within the dubstep scene (and beyond).

The label is run from an office just up the road in Brixton.

Watch this space for more information.

ACTRESS x HONEST JON’S

‘Splazsh’  is the highly anticipated long player from Brixton based electronica producer and Werk Discs boss Actress.

Actress played at Plan B as part of the Feeding Werk night (a collaboration between Werk Discs and East London’s Feeding Time) a few months back, with support from A Guy Called Gerald, Lone and Lukid.
