Broken and Uneven’s touring London event series The Hydra is set to take up an exclusive residency at Studio Spaces, starting with a triple header over August’s Bank Holiday weekend.
Studio Spaces, which is based in Wapping, has been expanded especially for the upcoming residency, with the addition of a second room in the form of a warehouse space next door set to take the capacity up to 1300 people. The Hydra’s inaugural party of the 2014 season sees them collaborate with Resident Advisor Friday 22nd August for an 8 hour extravaganza packed with highlights. Topping the bill is Planet E boss and Techno legend Carl Craig, with support coming the form of controversial Cult Music man Zomby, 6Music’s resident world music ambassador Gilles Peterson, South African House legend Black Coffee and Bristolian bass triumvarite Livity Sound-who play live. The mammoth line up is rounded up by experimental maverick Matthew Herbert, unorthodox Dutch producer A Made Up Sound, blunted singer songwriter Mo Kolours, recent Hyponik interviewees Mr.Tophat and Art Alfie, and Londoner Vester Koza.
Ghostly International are next up to the plate Saturday 23rd August with label boss Matthew Dear headlining on a night which also features a live show from New York beat maker Com Truise plus DJ sets from Mark E and Fort Romeau.
The triple header conclude Sunday 24th August with Techno promoter Blueprint taking over the newly renovated venue, with former Underground Resistance man Robert Hood celebrating 20 years of his M-Plant label, alongside the likes of Berlin’s fast rising Rødhåd, industrial sound scape designer Shackleton, Berghain regular DVS1, Leeds born kick drum enthusiast Blawan and more.
