Hyponik & Don't Be Afraid

Hyponik & Don’t Be Afraid Present: The Big Wheel Fundraiser / Mr. Beatnick Promo Mix

We hook up with London-based techno/house label to present a Christmas fundraiser in aid of Shelter.

Taking place next Thursday December 8, at East London’s split level Horse and Groom, alongside Don’t Be Afraid head-honcho Semtek, we’ve put together a line-up of the finest DJ talent the capital has to offer, plus two very special guests, that represents a cross section of the music both camps love.

Our headliner’s can’t be revealed at this point, but safe to say they’re two artists who’ve helped pave the way for the fertile creative ground of the current bass scene – each providing their own distinct take on everything from jungle, to garage, house and techno. The list of support is long and quite literally bulging with talent, as DFA’s own Capracara rolls out the disco and house vibes, alongside UK funky and bass duo Greenmoney, whilst Duff Disco brings an edit-laden bag of tricks to proceedings.

Joining them will be Awkward Movements and Pictures Music man Chairman Kato, DBA’s own Mr. Beatnick (who’s ‘Synthete’s EP on the label has to be one the years finest), Clause Four, London house and bass man Alex Deamonds playing back-to-back with the Okzharp Soundsystem, plus residents from Huntleys and Palmers, Electric Minds, Tief, Kudos, all held down by Semtek himself, and Hyponik’s own Tedd Odwards.

Donations are £5 on the night, and for more information you can check out the Facebook event here. We also have the first in our line of promo mixes from Mr. Beatnick for you stream below, featuring tracks from Ron Trent Kenny Larkin Kirk Degiorgio and Talking Heads and more.
