AKA AKA ROAR: BOK BOK, ONEMAN, SLACKK, TRIM + WELL ROUNDED //
This Friday at LIFE brings us one of the biggest installments from AKA AKA ROAR to date. The line up is looking fiercely grimey, dank and dirty in the best possible sense – providing you with scarily good clubsounds to start “the intensely haunting experience” of your Halloween weekend… Truth. Headlining the night will be Nightslugs member and Rinse FM regular BOK BOK with ONEMAN and SLACKK ft. TRIM providing big support, plus a Room Two takeover from WELL ROUNDED – this promises to get rowdy…
Bok Bok’s appearance at Life is timed nicely with the release of his new collaborative record Night Voyage Tool Kit, on which he worked with Dutch house producer Tom Trago as part of Sound Pellegrino’s new Crossover Series. Keep your eyes on the ENK blog for an exclusive review, coming soon…
The EP officially goes on sale on Monday 31st October – yet another little Halloween treat to look forward to. We’re going to dress up as the undead, binge on pumpkin shaped chocolates and vodka jelly and play this stupidly loud, it’s going to get intense and weird and we’ll probably scare the neighbours, so watch out Brighton. The pagan spirit of witches and spirits are gonna be mingling with new future bass and the results will be mad.
Anyway, that aside, we’re very much looking forward to Bok Bok’s set and hope to hear some fresh new sounds – but let’s not forget “the floor’s all swervy and shit” classic that is Citizen’s Dub, though… turn it up, below. Bring it on Bok Bok, you devil!
As stated on XLR8R, Oneman’s DJ style sees him pulling “from nearly every branch of the hardcore continuum, expertly weaving together disparate sounds and balancing new and unreleased cuts with select gems from his vault. He’s been called a DJ’s DJ, but that’s not really fair, as Oneman is a true expert of the craft, someone whose influence extends well beyond the so-called ‘heads’.”
His Rinse FM show (each and every Sunday from 11pm – 1am) is definitely worth a listen.
Slackk, with Trim on the mic, set to turn up the heat with some true UK grime. If you made it down to the Butterz takeover at Life a few weeks ago, you know the kinda thing to expect! Check out Trim’s bars over Elijah & Skilliam, during their set at Life, on Ustream.tv.
So come down and join us – and our good friends at Well Rounded and Aka – in a celebration of great music, cheap drinks and partying!
