In recent months Tiger Beer’s Hidden Depths series has played host to some of the most important UK labels of the day – Hyperdub, Ninja Tune and Hospital Records; paying homage to the producers / artists who have inspired and influenced them as well as giving them an opportunity to showcase their hopes for the future.
Next up in the series is Numbers – a Glaswegian club night and record label formed via an amalgamation of the Stuffrecords, Wireblock and Dress 2 Sweat imprints. Over the last 9 years they have been responsible for some of the biggest seismic shifts in the sound of the UK – not only releasing seminal works by SBTRKT, Jessie Ware, Jamie xx, Mosca, Deadboy and Redinho, but also via close affiliates Hudson Mohawke and Rustie.
The Numbers sound covers a broad spectrum, but at it’s roots is classic hip hop, R&B and disco (evident on recent releases by both Deadboy and Redinho) but possibly even more so, the techno and house sounds of Detroit, New York and of course, Chicago.
In keeping with the ideology behind the Hidden Depths series, they have invited legendary Chicago born producer Lil’ Louis to join Numbers residents Jackmaster, Goodhand and Spencer, with the latter of the three doing an exclusive back to back set with the Big Apple regular, UK Garage legend and one third of Magnetic Man – Artwork.
Every year for our Birthday celebrations, we try to pack in as much high quality music as possible and this year part 1 does exactly that, resembling a mini three room one night festival. On top of that we always try to book a genuine legend to headline the event – someone who’s shaped a scene or pioneered a genre. For our first birthday original junglist Shy FX topped the bill. For our 2nd Birthday UK Garage originators MJ Cole and Zed Bias represented. For our 3rd Birthday Grandmaster Flash headlined, and this year we are proud to welcome the God Father of dub and reggae David Rodigan. This will be a rare intimate club show for Rodigan, and if its anything like the last time he played at Trouble Vision, an opportunity not to be missed.
ATP are very proud to announce that EL-P will be returning to the UK in September to perform at the Scala. This will be in support of his excellent new album ‘Cancer For Cure’ which dropped in May this year.
