Jungle and techno-breaks night in the basement of an old Victorian police station
We're so excited to be back yet again at The Island bringing you minimal junglist Coco Bryce, breakbeat connoisseur LMajor and of course, our residents Disaffected.
Tickets £8/10 available via Headfirst Bristol.
Coco Bryce may be a relatively new name to most in the UK, however he’s been plying his trade for around two decades. Hailing from Breda in the south of the Netherlands, it was back in the ‘90s when he first became enamoured with the sounds of breakbeat hardcore and gabber.
As jungle’s new wave has solidified into a certifiable movement, Coco has become one of the genre’s most sought-after producers. Coco’s junglistic sound involves typically intricate drum patterns, but ones that remain playful and full of groove, and his tracks are often backed by warm or melancholic pads, and peppered with squeaky, uplifting vox lines. soundcloud.com/cocobrycebeats
One to watch in the breakbeat/rave revival sound, Louis 'LMajor' Major is no stranger to the slower side of chops and breaks, often infused with techno and garage sounds. His releases on labels such as WNCL Recordings , Club Glow, Ecstasy Garage Disco, Ritual Poison, Secret Rave are consistently played around the world by some of the world's top DJs who recognise his aptitude for producing some iconic breakbeat dance tracks. We can't wait to bring him over from London for a true rave rinseout. soundcloud.com/lmajor
The rave duo recently formed in the Summer of 2019 have gone from strength to strength, self-releasing their first breakbeat/rave EP 'Sirens' with high praise. They've gone on to play supporting sets at Bridewell Complex with names such as Ed Solo, Deekline, Dub Pistols and DJ Hybrid also on the line up, as well as at our previous events with Borai and Dead Man's Chest. Except them to play some rave-inspired gems as well as some unreleased clangers. soundcloud.com/dsffctd
We'll be hosting this event beneath Bristol's streets, in the jail cells of the old Victorian police station. The Island is a venue that consistently fronts the best of the underground scene, and in a completely unique setting.
We'll be bringing the same levels of production as our last event so expect a night to remember. See you on the dancefloor.
Strobe lighting, smoke and lasers will be in use at this event.
