Frogbeats x Handpicked
Hip Hop & Jungle
Ft. DJ Vadim, Suff Daddy and a Giant Roland 303
Friday 16th September
The Art School
Tickets available through Eventbrite: goo.gl/RXkVd0
Over the past 4 months we have been concocting our biggest event to date alongside the Handpicked family. Featuring the versatile veteran DJ Vadim, Hip Hop sensation Suff Daddy as well as a giant, interactive Roland 303 (courtesy of Ray Interactive), this event is set to blow fresher's week right out the water and in to the frying pan. Globetrotter DJ Vadim, who has released over 10 albums including a number on the Ninja Tune insignia, will be taking a rare moment away from his usual hip hop/reggae/soul tip to join our residents Tuscan Whale, Rize, JMD and host MC Bass Monkey in a dose of the finest in jungle breaks and bass lines.
For those of you perhaps not familiar with DJ Vadim or Suff Daddy, here is some material to put you in the know.
The Giant Roland 303 has been one of our favourite finds this year and this will be on our additional third floor. Ray Interactive, the Edinburgh-based group behind this magnificent creation, have been touring it around the UK for the past couple of years at festivals like Bang Face, Kelburn Garden Party and Audio Soup. Put simply on rayinteractive.org, "giant acid bassline synth based on the TB-303. Trigger and manipulate pre-programmed classic bass lines and drum loops." The installation is completely interactive and will be customised for this event. The group also have a scaled up model of the 909 which we are yet to see. Who knows, maybe we will upgrade...
Hope to see you there.
