Celebrating their 6th Birthday at Forms on Friday 6th April, Solid.Grooves welcomes the signature old school inventive tech house sounds of PAWSA, Solid Grooves label owner Michael Bibi, the quickly rising Shaf Huse and the extremely talented Franz Costa. They'll be joined on the evening by a number of very special headliners which are yet to be announced.
Friday 20th April sees Waze & Odyssey, a.k.a Serge Santiago and Firas Waez. The duo released their first track Ah Baby (Here We Go Again) in early 2012 and have been carving their way through the dance music scene ever since. Joining them will be UИCAGΞ label owner Marco Faraone and Spainish superstar Edu Imbernon. Room three will be headed up by the reliable Bontan and The Menendez Brothers.
Cocoon take the reigns on Friday 4th May, kicking off the May Day Bank Holiday in true fashion. Much like Forms, Cocoon Recordings' philosophy has its roots in the need to create a platform for young and talented DJs and producers to develop their personal path of creativity. Since 2000, the label has released more than 350 artists ranging from house and techno to minimal and tech-house sounds with a total of 300 releases, plus a run of very successful club nights internationally. Robert Johnson resident Martyne, a live set from experimental house and techno don Tim Green, and the dancefloor favourite Dana Ruh will be amongst the acts to join the very special headliner which is still TBA.
On Friday 18th May, Forms celebrate 10 Years Of No.19. The brand/concept was created based on ideas expressed in article No.19 of the declaration of human rights - "Freedom of Expression".The prolific producer's original style landed Art Department at the forefront of a major underground music movement, transcending genre barriers and breaking down walls as few other underground artists have. Art Department will head up the event, with further artists to be announced soon.
There's another tantalising takeover on Friday 1st June as SubSoul take control of the disco and they've enlisted an eye-catching bill for the occasion. We can't announce a bunch of the very special headliners we have lined up for this event just yet but we can reveal Jacky, Alexis Raphael and Funster will take the reigns to provide a soundtrack that effortlessly spans genres and unique sounds.
Friday 15th June sees the high energy duo Amine Edge & Dance land in Room One, joined on the evening by Matt.Joe and GW Harrison. Over in Room two, expect plenty of the "Good Vibes House" that This Ain't Bristol regularly champion, with exhilarating sets from Weiss, Billy Kenny and Maximono not to be missed.
Line ups are below and tickets are on sale here. More names will be dropped soon.
