Pioneering DnB label Metalheadz have released two videos in the build up to their 20th birthday party at Fire this weekend.
The two ‘Metalheadz History Sessions’ videos feature head honcho Goldie, as well as pivotal figures such as Loxy, Randall and Source Direct, reminiscing about key moments in the label’s history, including the legendary Sunday session at Hoxton’s Blue Note. A ‘testing ground’ where people could appreciate new tunes as ‘art’, the DJ’s talk fondly of their time at the club, which is now shut. The two videos are nicely accompanied by recently uploaded VHS footage from a late 90’s documentary on ‘Headz and Blue Note, complete with audio from a Grooverider set at the club.
This Friday at Fire meanwhile marks the first in a series of events this year celebrating the label’s birthday. On the night there will be sets from Goldie (obviously), Dillinja, Ed Rush, Doc Scott, Krust, Storm, Randall, Source Direct and more. Check the full line up and get tickets here.
