Hot on the heels of Synesthesia #2 we’re going straight back in with another technicolour selection of bass music from around the world just in time for summer. Vocals feature heavily on this release with Senseless resident MC Dialect showcasing his tough northern grime flex all over an eski-juke anthem (instro included) from Lenkemz who has been getting support from Diplo, Toddla, Basement Jaxx and many others recently. Next up we have one of our all time favourite artists and a big inspiration for the label, we’re very pleased to welcome Poirier with three absolute killers.
First up he teams up with long time collaborator Face T for the bass heavy ‘What’, lets just say sleng teng in a 2K12 style. On ‘Festival’ he channels African influences into a summer carival workout and then flips it for the slower reggaeton-inspired ‘Ladrillo Por Ladrillo’ featuring Boogat on vox. Finally we have a burning hot newcomer out of the furnaces in the Steel City, Walter Ego drops the monstrous Sidney St, a slab of futuristic 135 BPM grime named after the street where the legendary Niche club was held. More coming from him on Toddla’s Girls Music and UTTU this year amongst others. Finally we have a deeper version of Walter Ego’s track, not on the release, watch this space 😉
The results are in and the rave was immense in every way. Plans are already being made for the next one. Relive the madness in this gallery @Bartek Szadura for the camera work:
We’ve been hard at work in the studio screen printing all 250 of the vinyl sleeves by hand, painstaking but satisfying work. There’s a sneak preview of how they look with a bit of the process in the gallery below:
The launch at Cafe 1001 last week went better than we could have hoped, thanks to everyone that came down and everyone who made it happen. All the artists were there signing the LTD edition prints, we had tropical fire from Murlo on the wheels and an amazing all analogue live set from Headcleaner. The prints on textured archive paper at A1 size looked incredible, the colours were popping out of the frames. They are still up for a few more days if you would like to go and check them out at Cafe 1001, Brick Lane (opposite Rough Trade East).
We have a couple of each of the limited edition signed, first run A3 prints for sale in our shop HERE
Here’s the gallery:
Pachanga was amazing, 2500 people and anyone there will tell you it was one of the best London warehouse raves in recent memory, pure vibes. Thanks to all the DJs who played, you smashed it. To High Pressure, Siren and Everyone Sound and everyone else who worked so hard to make it happen. Amazing photos are here courtesy of Bartek Szadura. (His Portfolio)
