We’d be the first people to admit that we’ve been so deep in winter that we’ve kind of forgotten about the subtle perks that the gentler months can bring. Obviously warmer climes and brighter evenings are some of the most treasured things a wool clad and vitamin D deficient hoard can wish for but springtime also means Bank Holiday Weekends which, as we all know, mean extended weekends and extra opportunities for more time in the rave. The first Bank Holiday to drop will be the longest when Easter weekend arrives at the end of March and, as is now tradition, we intend to take full advantage of this opportunity lining up four concurrent nights of incredible music.
Maceo Plex will launch our weekend a day early on Thursday 24th March when his Ellum Audio takes over Room One and Two with a selection of the acts that have to date populated his label appearing alongside the underground electro hero Convextion who will be travelling from Texas for an ultra-rare UK live set.
Then our FABRICLIVE programming on Friday night will salute an incredibly unique and forward thinking quartet who’ve collectively impacted on the landscape of drum & bass more times than we can mention here. Yep, following a little trickle of new music, we’re hyped to announce that Bad Company are reuniting with their full, original lineup of Fresh, Maldini, DBridge and Vegas set to appear together in Room One.
On Saturday night one of techno music’s most recognisable, influential and forward focussed individuals Richie Hawtin lands back in Room One where he’ll perform alongside blossoming Ukraine DJ Nastia while one of Detroit’s finest and Room Two regular Stacey Pullen returns to EC1.
To complete the weekend WetYourSelf! offer a finale to the weekend with an extended opening time 8am opening time and three rooms of underground house and techno. Highlights from their bill includes a live set from Stephan Bodzin in Room One, Solo Danza in Room Two and Cartulis Day hosting Room Three.
