Corsica Studios are very pleased to announce that Sneaker Social Club will be launching their ‘London To Bristol’ Compilation with us in June. With a lineup that crosses as many genre boundaries as the compilation itself, this promises to be one hell of a party.
On Friday 1st June Broken & Uneven will be hosting the official Dimensions Festival Launch Party at a secret London venue that sees the crew behind Outlook Festival add another impressive string to their bow. This Underground Electronic Music event takes places in Croatia’s idyllic Fort Punta Christo and the cream of all scenes will take centre stage on what is becoming one of Europe’s most talked about partying destinations.
Hosting the main room on the night will be Eglo Records who have been on a roll as of late after recently celebrating their label’s third birthday and being responsible for one of 2011’s most discerning releases, the Shadows EP by label co-founder Floating Points. He will be spinning his trademark selection of rare Funk and Disco as well as off-kilter House that has seen him inspire crate diggers and vinyl lovers alike. Label-mate Alexander Nut, who’s Saturday afternoon slot on Rinse FM has become somewhat of a one-stop shop for the Eglo sound, is known for his unpredictable sets that range from Hip-Hop to House to Broken Beat and beyond whilst Funkineven’s futuristic take on House will be a journey through Acid and mercurial Funk. DMZ head honcho Mala will be making a special guest appearance alongside the Eglo camp on the night and based on past performances we can expect nothing but a barrage of unreleased dubs from one of Dubstep’s true originators. His well-renowned attention to low-end vibrations and frequencies will be warmly welcomed by our bespoke Sound Services soundsystem so get your earplugs at the ready.
Room Two see’s burgeoning warehouse promoters Beat Dimension put forward-thinking Bass/D&B shoulder to shoulder with no-holds barred House/Techno. Enlisting the talents of (recently resurrected R&S Offshoot) Apollo signing Synkro, Exit Records’ Indigo and the artist formerly known as Duffstep – Echer to represent. Leeds native Youandewan, who has released on Hypercolour and remixed for the likes of Midland, will also be on hand to lay down his warehouse friendly selection that focuses heavily on the percussive and bass heavy end of House and Bass Music.

The first Friday in June sees The Nest embark on an epic journey through the grime and UK funky new school. Presenting high-octane, bouncy and gun-finger inducing beats, three of the most promising artists on the bass music underground are set to descend on our basement disco.
Lil Silva has carved an impressive niche for himself within UK funky; always erring on the right side of credible and playing alongside house, bass and dubstep artists alike. After a renowned debut release on London label Night Slugs, the Bedford based artist has gone on to release remixes for the likes of SBTRKT, Lana Del Rey and was the first producer to drop on the up and coming Good Years imprint.
National spokesmen for instrumental grime, Elijah & Skilliam, join Lil Silva in the headline spot. Responsible for bringing the talents of Royal T, TRC, Swindle and P Money to the foreground with their influential Butterz imprint, Elijah & Skilliam are grime-aficionados-come-scene-tastemakers with a record bag full of roof off bangers and a double dance routine to match.
Faze Miyake made some serious moves in 2011, putting out several well-produced and hard edged grime tracks with airplay on Kiss, 1xtra, Rinse and loads more. Working closely alongside the likes of Merky Ace, P Money and the OGz, we’re excited to get him down for a rare London show.
Support comes from Pete Jordan and Swiss electronic pop outfit Dogtanion.

Friday nights at The Old Queen’s Head are an institution for partying. Each and every week we book some of the world’s most renowned DJs to come and grace our illustrious DJ booth.
