NYC/LDN is back, bringing a little New York swag to London nightlife. After taking a three-year hiatus from the last session in 2008 – which debut Theophilus London to the UK – this daring new music club night emerges to reconnect the paces of both cities in the quest of “who’s got next”?
Dyme-A-Duzin refuses to follow anybody’s standards. This charismatic 18-year old mc is today’s 360 hip-hop artist – rapper, singer, songwriter, video producer, marketer, distributor and more. Dymez overall confidence, style and demeanor illuminate his talents where there is no dismissing his pop star potential. Loaded with online takeaways, his music videos are more like web-episodes that his fans can chronicle his rise to fame.
Nu Brand is pioneering a new London sound we’ve coined as chronic grime. Their unique approach is slowing down the bpms and releasing some 2-step tension to allow their hooks to flow and transcend. Imagine N.E.R.D making a slow jam for Bashy. It’s mary jane all night long.
Futuristic synth loving boy/girl duo Royalty round up the live while on the party spinning selections are in the hands of Ellijah & Skilliam B2B Swindle, Work It DJs, the bPM (Boiler Room) and Lixo (Get Me!). NYC/LDN feels so damn good to be back!
PRESENTED BY PEGGY JEAN-LOUIS AND KOKO
Native is a brand new night hitting Brixton, South London focusing on forward thinking bass music.
The first night features one of the producers/DJ’s of the moment, XXXY. Hailing from Manchester, XXXY’s productions and remixes take us back to the heyday of the UK Garage scene with a modern twist. His breakout hit Ordinary Things took dancefloors across the UK by storm with it’s punchy vocal sample and perfectly layered synths.
Native #01 also features the first public performance from the mysterious Infinite Potentials, one of the founding members of Indigo Pyramid, who’s album ‘Indigo Shades’ garnered much appreciation from the underground music scene last year with their individual fusion of hip-hop, electro, soul, brokenbeat and nu jazz sounds.
Residents Deadbit, Mr Luna, Collapse & Sober have all been Producing & DJing around London for almost the last decade moving through different genres and all finding their own sound.
