AKA AKA ROAR! PRESENTS: LOEFAH, UNTOLD, JAM CITY + SUPPORT //
On FRIDAY 29TH APRIL, the AKA AKA ROAR! crew are in charge once more, and they’ve got something very special on the cards for everyone at LIFE. The line up is of such musical intensity, that when first conceived, brought a collective tear to the eye of all involved…
Headlining the night is LOEFAH, South London based Dubstep pioneer. Loefah stands as a hugely successful cornerstone of British underground music, and has been killing it for years. He co-founded DMZ with Mala, Coki and Sgt. Pokes, whose shared love of music led them to form the group and start up a club night in its name.
His own label, SWAMP 81, showcases new sounds from a spectrum of progressive and electronic music: Kryptic Minds, Skream, Addison Groove, Ramadanman, The Bug and Boddika have all had releases with Swamp. Loefah has undoubtedly helped to give serious air time to underground music, particularly Dubstep, on the likes of Radio 1 and Rinse FM.
Taking influence from Hip Hop, Techno, DnB and Garage, Loefah’s own productions have been received with big love from the Dubstep community. His DJ sets are creative, perfectly paced and tightly pieced together, and his performance at LIFE is sure to blow your socks off.
Very capable support comes from UNTOLD and JAM CITY. With only a handful of releases on Hessle Audio, Hotflush and his own Hemlock Recordings, London based UNTOLD – aka Jack Dunning – has made serious waves already. An Untold tune is highly distinguishable: compact bass lines that punish, and clean percussion that clicks and drives instinctively. He finds a balance between meticulous detail, deepness and pure dance floor sensibility that is very rare indeed. Check out his track ‘FLY GIRLS’ below for some speaker-shaking gold:
Meanwhile, JAM CITY has his own aesthetic which is completely unique and on point. Signed to Nightslugs, he is fast becoming recognized both for his production and DJing flair. His mixing takes a stripped-down but often psyehcedlic path through House, Grime, Juke, Electro and many other genres, and will leave you feeling stunned, satisfied and wanting more.
Extra special support will be coming from JOE, TEMPLE, LORCA and DUBLOKE, with Room 2 hosted by the DAGGER DJ’s.
So, ready your self! And as this wondrous night happens to be falling on the same day as the Royal Wedding, what better way to celebrate the Holy Matrimony between our Royal Prince and his uber posh fiancé?
