New partnership between the Playground and Slipped Disco on the first Friday of every month at 93 Feet East is set to break all the clichés and rules with a staggering combination of ghetto-electro, house and big band mayhem.

Launching new group Lotus Mason here’s a band that will surely make waves with their David Bowie-esque influence before driving the night into apocalyptic chaos and freneticism with the likes of well known group Magna Saga. Already one of our favourites this three piece churns out twisted licks and angst with pure perfection.
Utilising down beats and dissonant vocals that are comparable to Queens of the Stone Age in one instant, and lo-fi guitar distortion the next, it's delivered with all the subtleties and reticence of Tool. Harking back to the gritty DIY of grunge, fused with aggressive delivery, Magna Saga are experts in genre blending and stand head and shoulders above their stylised, over-produced contemporaries. Give them a play!” ROCKSOUND
