140 RINSE-OUT: SUBSIST & HOLD TIGHT
Two of Bristol’s most reliable dubstep crews team up to deliver a bumper session at Blue Mountain Club. AMAR label-head AMIT tops the bill with a techy blend of dubstep and halftime drum and bass. Meanwhile, dub-referencing 140 comes courtesy of French veteran Von D and newcomers Halcyonic & G Roots. The bill is topped by an impressive crew of local talent: Ickle, Roots Agenda, Tenor Steppa and more.
Promoters: SUBSIST, Hold Tight Records
–– More a full blown movement than just a label, Goldie's Metalheadz train rolls into Lakota - Bristol with a lineup of exceptional drum'n'bass mechanics.
Expect clinical halfstep from fan-favourites Commix (who made a much welcome return to the scene last year); jungle-not-jungle from Cosmic Bridge labelhead Om Unit; plus darkside techstep from Moving Shadow legend Dom & Roland. Support comes from fresh Metalheadz signing Benny L.
An unannounced special guest completes the bill - given the label's pedigree this might be worth the entrance fee alone.
