FRIDAY 6TH MAY | BRIXTON ELECTRIC
2016’s Biggest Bass Night In Brixton and Beyond
Soundcrash are hyped to announce the biggest bass night of year in the heart of Brixton, as we bring the U.K’s most renowned acts together under one roof for a night that’s going to be un-miss-able.
With a lineup filled with well known pioneers and legends of the UK Bass Culture music this night will no doubt have Electric Brixton shaking to its foundations.
Returning to Electric Brixton and headlining this mammoth event will be none other than Jungle music pioneer Congo Natty aka Rebel MC, a true force in the UK underground music scene and a key figure in making jungle music what it is today. Expect blood and fire, the sternum-buzz of sub-bass, rapid fire drum breaks, sweet hooks, righteous anger and professions of religious fervour.
Joining him on stage will be a host of special guests and collaborators such Brixton’s very own reggae emcees Congo Dubz & Iron Dread.
We’re also super hyped to have one of the most versatile producers and DJs of recent times, Breakage, a serious talent who continues to develop his sound. Breakage’s music is both subtle yet devastatingly effective, and will be the ideal soundscape for a night of heavy riddims and bass at the clubbing mecca Electric Brixton.
To add to what is already a heavyweight lineup, we’ve got one of the founding pillars of dubstep Kromestar, stepping up with host Brakeman for what will truly be an unforgettable night of bass-weight.
And to top it off we’ve got a very special Tru Thoughts and Sharp and Ready Presents…
Capital Xtra DJ Ras Kwame will playing the very best of UK and international riddims. His musical prowese has taken him everywhere from radio to taking control of the turntables for artists such as Gang Starr, Public Enemy, Wu Tang Clan, But he has always stuck to his roots making a huge name for himself in the UK bass scene.
Toddla T’s right hand man, Birmingham’s Serocee, is a reggae artist guaranteed to bless the mic. Traversing Dancehall and Grime with the chunkiest of riddims and setting dances off all night. Serocee is also renowned for his incredible freestyle skills, getting subjects from the crowd and shutting down the mic off the top of his head.
Also stepping up we’ve got Ghost Writerz and Jago feat Deemas mixing the darkest of percussive dub sounds with conscious lyricism, label mates Ed West & Rtkal as well as Lionbeat.
Electric Brixton is fast becoming the go to location for Drum N Bass & dance music in south London and it’s 1,700 venue capacity and stage size will be the perfect space to house.
