Troupe with Zed Bias (Now ON 15th DEC)
It’s been a while since DJ Friction brought his Shogun Audio clan down to Cable, and We Fear Silence welcomes them back with open arms. This time the DnB legend has invited down the one and only Dub Phizix to lead the proceedings. The mancunian has developed his own blend of DnB, carving a future-facing minimalist approach into the scene and leaving a lasting taste on the tongues of ravers all over the country. Friction adds a 2 hour set in the main room to the mix along with the regular Shogun boys are all in attendance as well including Alix Perez, Spectrasoul, Icicle, Rockwell and more. SP:MC, Mantmast and LX One are on top of all things lyrical and garage stalwart MJ Cole leads the way in room 2 with The Prototypes, El Matador and DJ Friction performing a special freestyle set. That’s right, Friction twice is twice as nice!

L Vis 1990
Special Guest: Soundstream (live)
The final month of The Hydra kicks off with Bugged Out present Night Slugs on Saturday 15th December, which showcases the London imprint’s finest talents and one of their personal heroes. The special guest this time around is Disco enthusiast Soundstream who’s remarkable edits and sample-laden cuts have seen the Panorama Bar affiliate build up a repertoire of buy-on-site releases that bring back hazy memories of yesteryear. Label-heads Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 are known for their genre-defying sets that can range from Garage to Techno to early UK Grime and have been known to go back to back for hours on end. Jam City’s recent Classical Curves LP has seen the producer come into his own both technically and musically whilst Girl Unit has been playing around with live 808’s and synthesizers by the sounds of his latest Club Rez EP so don’t surprised if he drops the odd Prince tune in his set.
