The Book Club, 100 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4RH, United Kingdom
Cut The Line moves East this bank holiday Sunday with a house, garage and UK bass special featuring some of the city?s finest DJs from Public Demand, Outlook Festival, ID Magazine and Pack London. Headlining, they are proud to present UK garage legend Jaimeson, the man behind such hits as 'True' and 'Urban Hero'. Joining him, they have Outlook resident, Boyson, ID Magazine?s Hutch, and Pack London resident Pesk.
In the late 1940s and 1950s the first wave of Afro-Caribbean immigrants, many of them ex-servicemen who fought, bled, and watched their friends die during WW2 for the UK, landed with their families in London. In the heart of empire these loyal colonial subjects and their descendants have faced racist subjugation, systematic oppression and violence ever since. With them also came the Afro-Caribbean rhythm traditions which took root and spread all over England, forming the musical foundation of much British modern music, from heavy reggae influenced rock like the Clash and Bauhaus, to the dub infused urban electronic sounds of Garage, Dubstep, UK Funky, and of course, Jungle and Drum'n'Bass.
Zeus, 20 Hosier Street, Reading, RG1 7JL, United Kingdom
Nightowl may have only been hosting events in Reading since the end of 2013 but already have a number of sell out shows under our belt with the likes of MK, Steve Lawler, Hot Since 82, Breach and Route94. We now welcome one of house music's fastest rising producers, Huxley, to Zeus for a night of quality house and techno.
Huxley has delivered releases for an enviable roster of labels (Tsuba, Morris Audio, Fear of Flying, Hypercolour and 20:20 Vision for starters) and has stayed true to his robust, bass-led strain of house music that reflects his formative interests in UK and US Garage, with critics, punters and peers lapping up each release and remix.
As a remixer, the Herfordshire man is hugely in demand, turning his hand to major label talents with as much flair and skills as he does underground cornerstones like Lee Burridge or Maya Jane Coles. Completing the picture is his Djing, another perfect string to his bow that sees him tour his open minded and deftly programmed music selections in clubs and festivals across the world on a weekly basis!
This event is expected to sell out in advance and early purchase of tickets is recommended.
