The UK club legend is joined by one of Rinse FM’s most exciting selectors
Special Request is the London club night that started as a ‘heads only’ Facebook group to celebrate the best of House, Garage and the surrounding genres, and has previously treated us to sets from Elijah & Skilliam, Wookie, Cooly G, Terror Danjah, Mella Dee, Jeremy Sylvester and Sticky to name a few. It returns at the end of the month (May 30th) with an impressive line-up at Bar A Bar for a lesson in classics – with an emphasis on ruff & ready UK Garage.
For their latest instalment the guys at Special Request bring us UK Garage legend Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont, who was one half of esteemed production team Tuff Jam, alongside Karl ‘Tuff Enuff’ Brown. Joining Lamont will be Rinse FM star Josey Rebelle – an innovative DJ on the London station who’s been regularly constructing eclectic club sets over the past few years, fluently connecting the dots between House, Techno, Garage and Soul.
Starting proceedings will be local talent and Way Back Here resident LAIZI , who’ll be performing an exclusive Garage set, plus Special Request residents LECLERC & TK who’ll be playing their trademark blend of House, 4×4 and Grime. You can find more info on the night’s event page and buy tickets here.
