Rinse takeover the Social Club in Paris first Thursday of every month throughout 2012.
For over seventeen years Rinse has been pushing obstinate underground music out of London via its transmissions, club nights, releases and compilations it has inspired a brotherhood of producers, DJs and MCs to collaborate and create music. Like an “aerial on a tower-block it has acted as a focal point for successive musical waves from Jungle to UK garage, dubstep to funky and beyond.”
2011 has been another stellar year for Rinse, with compilations from Ben UFO and Elijah & Skilliam picking up glowing reviews far and wide. On top of this the stations roster has enjoyed a wealth of new additions, and once again the full Rinse crew destroyed Fabric a few days ago with their legendary Boxing Day party.
In 2012 a selection of Rinse FM regulars will be crossing the channel as part of a year residency at the Parisian music hot spot. London and Paris unite as the Rinse roster cement their position as ambassadors of the thriving underground London sound, setting up camp in a club situated in the heart of Paris, giving the Fench capital it’s “own grass-roots gateway into the true London sound.”
Youngsta, Roska and Elijah and Skilliam kick things of on Thursday February 2nd 2012. Entry to Social Club is FREE.
