Friday 21st June, see’s one of the biggest Drum & Bass parties held at the club featuring an array of talent! We’re excited to welcome Chase & Status (DJ Set) + Rage, Dimension, Matrix & Futurebound and Ekko & Sidetrack.
Multi-award winning, platinum record selling producers, writers and musicians, Chase & Status are in a league of their own. Pharrell Williams hails them as “The most exciting producers in the UK today”, Rihanna considers them ‘the backbone’ of her record ‘Rated R’. High praise for London’s finest drum ‘n’ bass artists. The chart-smashing, speaker-destroying duo of Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status) are one of the UK’s best-known and biggest-selling acts. Formed in 2003, the London duo have risen from strength to strength to become the multi award-winning, hugely in-demand act they are today. Responsible for a string of dancefloor anthems, stretching from 2009′s End Credits, to Let You Go, Flashing Lights to recent hits like Delete and Program, they have consistently delivered the goods!
At an early stage of his career, Dimension was already turning heads within the Drum & Bass scene and specialist radio alike. A combination of effortless musicality and production prowess caught the attention of many producers and DJ’s such as Andy C, Sub Focus and Chase & Status. The real turning point for Dimension was in 2016 with Annie Mac claiming “this is Dimension’s strongest year to date.” Dimension released two singles – ‘Automatik’ which was Hottest Record In The World as well as #1 in the Radio 1 Dance Chart, and taking the crown of his second Hottest Record with arguably the biggest underground Drum & Bass track of the year, ‘UK’, which received unprecedented support from club and radio DJ’s across the board including Dance music stalwart, Pete Tong.
Individually and as part of a duo, Matrix & Futurebound have decades worth of experience in shaping the drum & bass landscape. Brendan Collins and Jamie Quinn possess one of the most impressive track records in the genre’s history, boasting one hundred million combined streams, one critically acclaimed album ‘Universal Truth’ and multiple consecutive Top 40 UK records. Their expert song writing can be seen through cuts such as ‘All I Know’, ‘Magnetic Eyes’ alongside Baby Blue, ‘Don’t Look Back’ ft. Tanya Lacey and the legendary silver certified ‘Control’ with Max Marshall, which reached number seven on the UK’s Top 40 singles chart whilst representing their fourth consecutive track to be playlisted on BBC Radio 1. Matrix & Futurebound are set to capitalise on this success for 2019 – their second studio LP ‘Mystery Machine’ is a testament to the legacy which they’ve built throughout their career, as they’ve become one of the most influential figures for a colossal dance music export.
Australian brothers Jeff and Jonathan Hansen, otherwise known as Ekko & Sidetrack, have been turning heads around the world since their 2018 signing to Viper Recordings. With tracks such as ‘Exotic Robotics’ and ‘Combat’ hurting dance floors everywhere they’re played and songs “Let The Light In” and “Long Summer” causing episodes of explosive euphoria throughout the land –the brothers have secured a global fanbase of both punters and high-profile artists alike. With their new single on the horizon and a few collaborations and remixes on their way, Ekko & Sidetrack show no signs of slowing down in 2019.
