~ Bok Bok & L-Vis 1990 [ Night Slugs ]
A product of the dynamic bass music scene in the UK in the late 2000s, the Night Slugs label, headed by Bok Bok and L-Vis, has been a vital outpost for forward-thinking club music ever since. Beginning life in 2008 as a South London-based night, Night Slugs parties looked to explore bass music subcultures – Baltimore club, vogue, UK funky, US southern rap etc – as the dominating dubstep scene slowed.
It became a label in 2010, operating on the same blueprint: a wide variety of club music, all held together by a unifying aesthetic. Drum-heavy, often trappy, often mechanical, always gritty, the Night Slugs sound soon became an essential part of the UK club experience. Host to tracks such as Lil Silva’s UK Funky anthem ‘Seasons’, Pearson Sound’s flip of Rod Lee and KW Griff’s ‘Bring in the Catz’ (as used by Minor Science to bring chaos to a Goodness party in June), it is likely a Slugs tune sits in your favourite DJs ‘secret weapons folder’.
L-Vis 1990 and Bok Bok produce alongside a roster that was largely cultivated at the Night Slugs party. Label regulars, such as Helix, Jam City & Girl Unit, as well as Bok Bok and L-Vis themselves, each have their own particular take on the Slugs sound, whether that be a slight techno, drum, or hip hop focus. The result is a diverse collection of certified club bangers, perfectly suited to small, basement clubs - definitely worth experiencing
~ Afrodeutsche [ Skam ]
Ghanaian/German/Russian Manchester local Afrodeutsche has steadily been making a name for herself as one of the best DJs to come out of the city in recent years. A meticulous live set has featured in support of dance music royalty such as Carl Craig and Dopplereffekt; her DJ sets have taken her to the Säule arm of Berghain and beyond. Her recent full-length on Skam has been called their most exciting release this decade. Expect electro, UK techno and more - one to watch.
~ BOLT [ VAM, Limbo Radio ]
Izzy Bolt is an emerging multi-disciplinary artist and curator, running projects as part of VAM and Drift_MCR. Resulting from her involvement in the Manchester club scene, including support roles for DJs like Minor Science, Lack and Paula Temple, her work looks to incorporate electronic music with digital art.
Currently occupied with her own sonic exploration guided by a background in anthropology, this project involves inverting landscape surfaces, processing breaks with spectral sound and squeezing the full potential from field recordings. An all-round artist, expect to see her more and more
