Rebeljam After Party at House of Vans – FREE ENTRY

House of Vans, London

Closing off one of the BMX world’s most hotly anticipated events, Red Bull bring a heavy night of Grime and Garage music to the House of Vans.

Steve Bishop, known professionally as Oneman, is a DJ and producer from Streatham, London. His background is in pirate radio and he is now a regular DJ on Rinse FM.

Oneman’s DJ sets typically blend dubstep, hip-hop, grime, UK funky and UK garage, and he has released two mix albums with Fabriclive and Rinse FM.

Crack magazine discusses Oneman’s early career and background, describing him as a “A figure synonymous with the Rinse FM station and the brand and subculture surrounding it, the origins of illegal broadcasts and guerrilla tactics made for an aggressive movement and an unmistakable sound. Having grown up in Streatham during the original impact of UK garage, the part Oneman plays in the landscape now is twofold. It’s not as if he’s attempting to initiate a full-on renaissance of the UK garage scene, but it’s DJs like Oneman who help embed these sounds into the consciousness of a clubbing generation who narrowly missed it.

Nathan Gerald, better known as Preditah is a Garage/Grime music composer, DJ & Bassist from Birmingham, England. Thanks to His orchestral, melodic head-banging music, He is now one of the most recognisable names and faces in Grime – a poster boy, even.

Murlo specialises in a wonderfully colourful kind of bass-heavy dance music and he’s getting the recognition he deserves.

This year he’s put out one of the best grime tunes of 2014, landed a mini-residency on BBC 1Xtra and become a strong affiliate of the Boxed and Butterz camps.

A few years back he moved to London from Brighton in order to concentrate on music and the step into the capital is now paying off. He taps into the whomp ‘n’ grind of grime, garage and bassline as well as the hot thrust of dancehall and afrobeats to create riddims that shimmy and shake with carnival energy and low-end heat. Put simply, you’ll know a Murlo tune when you hear it and he’s forging ahead with his own insatiable style.

The event will be streamed live on redbull.com/bike

Room 2: Wang Presents SMD (Warehouse Acid Set) + Electro Elvis + Jerome Hill
It’s been nearly 9 months since the launch of XOYO’s residency series and as a club we look back on an unforgettable run of parties. Our residents Eats Everything, The 2 Bears and now Jackmaster have all shown just how much dedication and passion it takes to deliver a prolific residency in present clubland. It’s a great honour to announce Simian Mobile Disco will become XOYO’s 4th quarter residents of 2014. As they release their brand new album Whorl, the internationally acclaimed duo will take the crown from Jackmaster this October. The pair will play 12 consecutive Saturdays across October, November and December bringing along an impressive roster of supporting guests to close XOYO’s inaugural year of the residency series.

With Simian this week is Matthew Dear, the emotive electronic pop artist, whose ambitious productions have earned him plaudits far and wide. Adding some grit to the proceedings are Boddika and Rebuild, a new project between A Guy Called Gerald and 808 State. After starting in Room 1, Simian will then be swapping headline duties for a special warehouse acid set in Room 2 for the rest of the night in association with legendary dance party WANG.

Venetian Snares + Boxcutter + Chevron + The doubtful guest at The Laundry 15 – 11 – 2014

The Laundry, London

In collaboration with Planet mu, Soundcrash presents one of the nastiest nights of the year at the Laundry 15th of November 2014…

If you made it to the last sold out show at Scala this year, you’ll know with Venetian Snares , to expect the unexpected. Since the beginning of his career he has been pushing the boundaries of electronic music, pioneering a particularly complex, manic and surreal style of breakcore that has placed him at the fore front of underground electronica. He’s distinguished himself, both by his meticulous approach to composition and by the abundance of his releases. More than 20 albums since his 1999 debut, along with a slew of seven-inches, remixes, and compilation appearances. It’s very rare these days that music producers are able to leap from genre to genre while still keeping the overall vision of the source material intact. Aaron Funk has managed to do exactly that in a way that is darker and nastier than ever imagined.

‘Brutally dissonant, mind-blowingly complex and very, very nasty.’ – BBC

Boxcutter is a guitarist and electronic music producer from Northern Ireland. He has been releasing music since 2005 on labels such as Hotflush and Planet Mu. He is mainly known for his dubstep-related work under the alias Boxcutter, back in the formative days of the genre, but has also released music under his own name and more recently as The Host, an internet-themed fusion of footwork-inspired beats and cosmic instrumental sounds.

The Doubtful Guest is the Queen of UK’s breakcore. During her set she will move (and you will dance) through a selection of styles fusing dub, drum’n’bass and pure party music. Finalising the Planet Mu lineup is Chevron the alter ego of electronic musician Jonathan Valentine. Since releasing his debut LP on Planet Mu ‘Everything’s exactly the same’, he has gone on to play countless raves across the U.K and Europe.

Come join us for one hell of a party featuring the finest artists from the long running british Record Label, Planet Mu…
