THE PLAYGROUND & TRAPaTRAP?S UK launch event will be our largest show this year bringing together DUBSTEP, DRUM N BASS and TRAP until 6am in the morning this is one event not to be missed!

An unstoppable way to innovate in several styles of bass music and a ?best newcomers producers? award under their belt, DIRTYPHONICS- LIVE is with no doubt one of the most exciting groups in today?s electronic scene. If you?ve seen these French originators live, you have witnessed the future of live drum & bass performance that leaves competitors in the dust. ?

Based in Colarado, Paper Diamond has had a meteoric rise to fame within a short period after making his debut with the 2011 LP, 'Levitate'. Soon after his debut he began touring the States making a name for himself and made a huge global impact after getting picked up by Mad Decent frontman Diplo after putting his own energetic twist on a well know Diplo track he featured as the guest DJ on BBC 1Xtra's Diplo and Friends. He has since returned to his monumental tour across North America selling out 2000 capacity events and is set to make his first ever UK debut at Shapes May 3rd.

Trap duo LOUDPVCK consist of NY based Kenny Beats and LA resident Ryan Marks, both of whom bring something different to the production process. With Kenny's hip-hop background and Ryan's deep understanding of electronic music the pair meet in the middle creating some hard-hitting trap. After their remix of Flosstradamus' "Original Don" in 2012 the pair blew up and have since made big moves, touring around the US and working on a number of high profile remixes including the sought after remix of Jackal's "Shakedown". Beyond this the pair are known for their energetic sets so are definitely worth catching whilst in England.

Making their first UK appearance the Canadian trio KEYS N? KRATES have been tipped as the worlds only "trap band". Consisting of drummer Adam Tune, keyboard player David Matisse and award winning turntabalist Jr. Flo, the band are set to have a successful year. Having toured their unique sound across North America the group have since released an impressive EP "SOLOW" on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak records, which was featured on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show. premiering their exclusive live show this May at Shapes, KEYS N KRATES are act you do not want to miss.

The London based duo BARE NOIZE need little to no introduction as their heavy catalogue of releases speaks volumes on their place in bass music. The pair have deep-seated roots in dub-step with their debut self released 12" Chucky / Hangover. Beyond this they have worked with a number of well known artists including Foreign Beggars and Skrillex. The pair continue to tour globally and have recently had a guest slot on Skream's Radio 1 show.

Known for his deep and dark take on dub-step the Kent-based producer STENCHMAN has been around since dub-step's early days. He is commonly known for his soundcloud page and seems to churn out heavy hitting tunes at an alarming rate. The veritable workhorse has had a number of label releases including work on Prime Audio, Sequence Recordings and Bovinyl Moosick. If you are a fan of the darker side of dub-step we wouldn't suggest missing him this May at Shapes.

Based in Brighton, England, Ozzie quickly made an impact dropping his "Attention" EP early last year. His follow up EP "Whiskey & Coke" caused just as much of a stir and has since featured as the guest DJ on BBC Radio 1Xtra. With their energetic lo-fi trap influenced sound, their Shapes show is set to explode.

Londoners, Tigerblood, are the final addition to the lineup and are no strangers to the game. Known better for their remix work, the duo have since released their 'Celestial' EP, picking up some great responses. Their trap-induced style makes for a perfect addition to this epic warehouse line up.

THE PLAYGROUND is ready to kick with the hottest local and international acts at SHAPES in Hackney on Saturday 3rd May.

Darkstar
1st May 2014
1015 Folsom, 1015 Folsom St.,
Warp records sensational band, DARKSTAR, make way to SF for a special live performance. Since their latest release, ?News From Nowhere,? they've been heralded as an instant classic across the board! "Every place warrants a story. No matter where it is, how quiet, remote or disconnected. There are moments in people?s everyday lives, no matter how subtle, that can be documented and talked about in great detail. The instances spiral and ascend and take on their own course, altering the perception of how even the slightest change in a day can be felt deeply." ? Darkstar Darkstar first coalesced in the underground, electronic thrum of London?s nascent grime and dubstep sphere in the middle 2000?s, growing from attending the now-fabled early FWD club nights to releasing a pair of game-changing 12? singles on Kode 9?s fledgling Hyperdub label. These were marked departures at the time, fusing unique sonic futurism with an avant-garde pop sensibility that immediately set the duo of Aiden Whalley and James Young apart from the glut of producers emerging at the time. What followed was a fitful and productive period culminating in a discarded album?s worth of tracks, the crucial introduction of vocalist James Buttery to the fold and, finally - the release of their debut full-length North, to wide acclaim.

Trap City
18th April 2014
1015 Folsom, 1015 Folsom St.,
featuring ?Z and Tropkillaz with Ultraviolet, Napsty, DJ Dials and /teleport vs Le Swndle 1015 has been synonymous with bringing you the next big sound in the world of music. Rewind to 2012 at the peak of the dubstep craze, there were whispers of a new movement that focused on the relentless sounds of Southern Rap; heavy 808 kicks and the constant ratchet of hi hat 16ths. The movement still did not have a face. Later in the year we took the chance and booked the mysterious ???? ?Z ????. His sound was raw and, ironically, his shrouded identity was the perfect face of TRAP MUSIC. Shortly there after, ?Z became the ambassador of the Trap Music sound changing the face of club and festival music forever. He returned to 1015 to play MELT in 3D - a party on the bleeding edge of future music and immersive club visual experience. We heard that you couldn't get enough of his signature sound, so we had him back a few months later for a sell out show at our iconic post burn party - THE AFTERBURN. Fast forward to today. Trap Music is in the limelight and ?Z is championed by producers from Diplo to Skrillex. That's why we have gone all out and teamed up with the best Trap Music crew on the West Coast - TRAP CITY. On Friday April 18th we present Trap City with ?Z and up and comers Tropkillaz from Brazil! There will be no other party in the country that can stand up to the force behind this one...

SHLOHMO
22nd April 2014
The Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave.,
"LA native Henry Laufer may be a young fella, but the 19-year-old producer, better known as Shlohmo, has rocketed on to our radar screen in recent months with his lo-fi, psychedelic mix of abstract hip-hop, dubstep-flavored wonk, bouncy synth-funk, breezy trip-hop, and what sounds like lost gems from the mid-'90s Mo' Wax catalog. Now splitting time between San Francisco and LA, in January Shlohmo will be releasing the Shlohmoshun Deluxe mini-album, so we decided to enlist him for the XLR8R podcast series now, before dude seriously blows up." --XLR8R

Gizmo at The New Parish, Thu, May 1 9:00p
1st May 2014
The New Parish, 579 18th St.,
Most musicians wait a lifetime to share stages with their musical heroes. Hoping to accomplish such a feat while still racking up college credits would be considered nothing more than a pipe dream. But having performed with such esteemed artists as Meshell Ndegeocello, Talib Kweli, and Victor Wooten as well as serving as music director for such acclaimed artists as Bilal and Lalah Hathaway, it's safe to say that 21-year-old bassist Kenneth "Gizmo" Rodgers has been living that dream for quite some time now. With a wealth of experience that belies his years touting a vast array of musical influences spanning the realms of jazz, pop, funk, rock, Latin, and hip-hop, Gizmo is set to unveil his debut sonic masterpiece Red Balloon. Produced by bassist Derrick Hodge (Robert Glasper Experiment, Kanye West, Common) with glints of spoken word and soul, Red Balloon is a wondrous 13-track odyssey through the multi-faceted human experience. "When you see a little kid let a balloon go at a carnival, everybody kind of looks up at it as it floats away," explains Gizmo of the project's captivating central theme. "The balloon seems to float around, trying to find its way. I feel like that's how most people are. We're all trying to figure out who we are, what we want to do, and what we stand for. All striving to be special, loved, or valued in some kind of way. And everybody's kind of watching you as you float around this life. But if the pressure gets too high, it pops at some point." A labor of love recorded over the course of three years in Boston between gigs and classes at Berklee College of Music, the deeply personal album features an impressive cast of thousands including Casey Benjamin of the Robert Glasper Experiment, accomplished pianist/ Berklee professor George Russell, Jr, Downbeat magazine Rising Star drummer Jamire Williams and more. Reared in Philadelphia in a household brimming with the influences of his Puerto Rican and African-American heritage, Gizmo was introduced to the sounds of salsa and soul at an early age. Though his spectacular bass facility evokes the promise and the prowess of legends such as Jaco Pastorious and Stanley Clarke, the instrument was actually the Philadelphia native's second choice. "When I was in elementary, I wanted to play drums," says Gizmo. "But they said I had big hands, so I started playing bass. I just went from there." Yet it wasn't until being accepted into the highly competitive statewide Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts program at the age of 16 that Gizmo began to seriously contemplate music as a fulfilling career. Instructed by professors from Berklee and Julliard at the 5-week program, Gizmo was inspired to hone his talent and stretch out in the fertile musical environment. "I had five weeks where I practiced, played, and did music everyday. I was studying seriously. Compared to my peers, I always felt like I was behind because I started late. So I worked extra hard to get where I needed to be. From that point, all I did was play in jazz groups and hip-hop cover groups in Philly." While at the program, Gizmo was instructed by pianists Russell and George Burton (Ornette Coleman, Christian McBride, and Wayne Shorter). Burton recommended that the young jazz hopeful get in touch with his close friend Hodge for further tutorship. The two hit it off immediately. "I went over to Derrick's house for a lesson and was there for like three hours. We just had a really good connection. He's been like a big brother to me since that point." While his iPod playlist consisted of the illustrious catalog of jazz giants such as Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane, he was also introduced to the music of recording artist and fellow bassist Meshell Ndegeocello during this formative period. "That blew my mind. Her music helped me to start paying attention to lyrics. On a deeper level, her music helped me to be a more open human being. It helped to break down the stigmas that I had in my mind in terms of what type of music you're supposed to play if you're black." After a semester spent in the jazz program at the University of Miami, Gizmo set sail for the more expansive halls of higher learning at the Berklee College of Music. During his first semester at Berklee, Gizmo developed a rapport with Ndegeocello who came to the school for a musician's clinic. The two solidified a friendship while performing at a subsequent concert in Los Angeles with the Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble. By his second semester, Gizmo had assumed the role of music director of Berklee's Neo Soul Ensemble, began gigging across the globe as a music director, and became an in-demand musician at venues such as the world famous Blue Note. During his travels, he performed and developed bonds with such accomplished musicians as Benjamin, Marcus Strickland, Dana Hawkins, and Marc De Clive-Lowe. In addition, Gizmo managed to secure endorsements from an impressive list of bass equipment and accessories companies such as Aguilar Amplifications, Mono Case, Dean Markely Strings, and Levy Leathers. By the end of his first year at Berklee, Gizmo had broadened both his resume and his musical horizons exponentially. "Everything started picking up," he says. "It became more than just about playing bass at that point. It was about learning how to write parts for horns, strings, and harmonies for background vocals." As music director for the Neo Soul Ensemble, he'd successfully music directed shows by Bilal and Lalah Hathaway. Being surrounded by such an awe-inspiring group of successful artists and musicians, Gizmo was inspired to begin putting his experience and education to use by sketching out sonic ideas of his own. Three years and countless ideas later, Red Balloon is the grand result. "When I first started, it wasn't about me making a record. I was just recording stuff. I was just trying to write music for myself." Beginning his journey with the funky spoken word-influenced "Sleepblah," Gizmo eventually amassed an impressive collection of tunes culled from demos recorded in Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia. Red Balloon also includes a little help from Berklee friends such as Nick Hakim, Darien Jovan, Derrick Cobbs, and BET's 106 & Park Wild Out Wednesdays featured artist Gwen Bunn. The album's expansive and mesmerizing title track will serve as the lead single. "That was one of the last songs I ended up recording," reveals Gizmo. "It's about shedding the anxieties and judgements we have about each other. It's about overcoming obstacles and accepting that seasons change. And above all that, continuing to try and fly." Hip-hop artist/ Berklee professor Brian "Raydar" Ellis drops rapid-fire verses on the funky head nod excursion "Invalid." Singer-songwriter Nick Hakim is featured on the album's brilliant second single "Lift Me Up." Penned by Hakim and co-produced by Gizmo, "Lift Me Up" exemplifies Gizmo's ability to condense his disparate influences into a soulful marvel of a gem. "The song is reflective of a place where most of us have been, in terms of questioning what decision to make and where we're going to end up," he explains. In addition to his own bass prowess, Red Balloon finds Gizmo contributing percussion, keyboards, and stepping behind the microphone for the first time as a singer. "My concept at first was to write these songs and have other people sing them," he admits. "But because of Meshell and Derrick saying, 'Nobody's going to have the same amount of emotional connection to the song as you will,' I just let myself go and recorded it." Following the advice of his mentors, Gizmo is featured singing lead vocals and reciting spoken word on cuts such as "Dancing," "Insane," and his enthralling rendition of the 2008 Kings Of Leon hit song "Use Somebody." Red Balloon will be released in association with progressive jazz boutique brand Revive Music. At the helm of the album's artwork is Roland Nichol, graphic designer of jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding's 2011 Grammy-winning album Chamber Music Society. Buttressed by the contributions of a vibrant collective of mentors, colleagues, and classmates, Red Balloon stands firmly as a dynamic undertaking by a promising young artist. Coalesced by Gizmo's own unique talent, it is a brazen statement from a new cadre of artists seeking to meld their formal jazz training with new sounds and modalities. It's clear that Gizmo and Red Balloon are representative of this group of artists in a chapter of change with an allegiance to the groove. "I definitely see it as a movement," says Gizmo. "It all stems from the idea of going with the moment. I've been struggling what to call my music, and I really don't know what to say. To me, in my heart, I feel like it's jazz - although we're not swinging. Some people might say it's alternative because I have some pop and some dubstep influences on there as well. But I feel like I'm just trying to make honest music, not doing something just because it's in style. I just let me influences fly free. It wasn't a conscious thought; it's just naturally what's inside me. There's just so much music in the world. But underneath all that, there's a solid groove."
