Some of the most exciting young talent from the UK’s electronic music scene gather for one highly anticipated night at Dalston’s Birthdays this August. It’s gonna be a belter!
Luke Harney, aka Typesun, has been exerting himself in the Bristol underground for quite some time as part of the FallingUp collective. His sound strongly reflects the Bristol fertile scene’s atmosphere as well as showing a healthy disregard for the strictly delineated genre boundaries that are being embraced by the UK scene at large. His latest album has been drawing praise from everyone from Gilles Peterson to Andrew Ashong and his recent series of support sets on Ghostpoet’s tour was incredibly well received. Typesun’s live show featuring a full band and Romaine Smith on vocals has been making heads turn since their explosion on the scene with their single The PL, a strong contender for soundtrack to the Summer. We can’t wait for this one.
Mancunian producer Pále makes smooth, atmospheric jams that border the broken realms of hip-hop, house and garage, but when he takes to the turntables he takes this up a notch and delivers a blistering floor-filling club set as wide ranging as his own productions. He has so far released on Four40 Records and Chew The Fat with some infectious tunes that have so far fulfilled the high expectations that are beginning to surround him proving that Pále definitely knows what a good tune sounds like. The Birthdays basement is sure to feel the heat.
Debian Blak holds his own as one of the emerging artists to watch. His first critically-acclaimed debut EP, ‘A Hint of Menace’ catapulted him to the forefront of the underground electronic scene and since he has been championed by likes of Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1), Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 MUSIC), Daedelus and Nicolas Jaar as one of the most exciting new producers of recent years. After successfully opening for AlunaGeorge and having his first sold out London show, Debian Blak’s performance at Birthday’s will be a definite must see!
Joining the dots we are delighted to have DJ duo Howson’s Groove on board to make sure the night flows as it should, playing everything from Hip Hop to main room bass monsters!
The event will take place at Birthdays in Dalston; a new and very welcome addition to the London club scene with its state of the art sound system and intimate feel, the perfect venue to get down and let loose on a Saturday night. Join us!
