Jungle Mania kick off the Carnival weekend with a full room showcase at FABRICLIVE. For the last 25 years, the London outfit have been a dominant force in the capital’s rave landscape, known for recreating the original spirit of the junglist movement with a regular cast of the scene’s key players. For their next takeover, they invite a full bunch of the sound’s pioneers as Grooverider, DJ Rap, Kenny Ken, DJ Ron, Ray Keith, Uncle Dugs, Aries and Twista all run things alongside a special guest. Leading MCs GQ, Ragga Twins, Fearless, Navigator, Moose and Blacka all take on hosting for a night that should capture the magic of jungle music in its blueprint form.
Room Two heads on a drum & bass tip with Shimon, as he brings his essential AudioPorn label to the space. He’s joined by Benny L, one of AudioPorn’s key signees and a champion of some of today’s most forward-thinking 170BPM club tracks. Nu Elementz, Azza and Grima link up for a joint TNA Showcase, while Inter, Kombo and Mekar present their Capital Punishment concept. Biological Beats artist Traumatize brings his dancefloor-driven sound, while Trimer and Leaf push their strain of high-octane D&B. Nvrsoft and High Maintenance round off the bill, with the proceedings hosted by a crew of first-rate MCs: Azza x Grima, Traumatik, Fatman D, Kombo, Mekar, Deefa and Pastrymaker.
The Rewired family set up camp in Room Three for a full night of House Music Anthems. The tight-knit crew formed through a love of the classic style of house, and recently their in-depth knowledge of the sound has earned them recognition across the capital. For their first night with us, they bring a cast of both established and rising figures as Apollo 84, Jack Dee and DJ Majesty line up alongside Rob Burden, Alecia Hanna, Jai Baisden, Paulo Moreno, Iwizz, Art e Fect, Braindead. Expect a winding journey through all of the highlight moments from one of the most enduring genres in the history of electronic music.
