Line-up /The Herbaliser (Full Live Band) + Anti-Pop Consortium + Igor Boxx (Skalpel) + P45
A truly cataclysmic selection of the forerunners of left-field electronic music hits Camden's most prestigious venue this summer... If you can't make it to Soundwave this year, worry not, for the party continues in London Town!
Our all-time favourite funky, forward-thinking, experimental hip-hop collective The Herbaliser make a welcome return to form with their full 10-piece band in anticipation of The Herbaliser's "Herbal Tonic" 'best of' release on Ninja Tune in June 2010. Founded by Ollie Teeba and Jake Wherry during the 90s, the Herbaliser have been responsible for some of the most memorable releases during Ninja Tune's early years. Their unique fusion of Jazz and Hip Hop is best experienced when seen live, and in Koko's beautiful surroundings this promises to be a very special set full of good vibes, lush instrumentation and plenty of colourful sounds!
Tripped-out beat-makers supreme Anti Pop Consortium join them; one of the most unique and progressive hip-hop outfits in the world they've found the perfect mix of smooth rhymes, group wordplays and psychedelic bass-lines which they use to entertain the crowds at their shows in a distinctly APC manner. Classic tracks such as 'Ping Pong' blend seemlessly in to newer joints like 'Volcano', all tied together with some properly brilliant avant-garde beat jams and accompanied by the ever smiling faces of four blokes LOVING what they do! Its infectious stuff...
Previously known as Zilla, King Cannibal's name has become synonymous with spine-shattering sub-frequencies in the last year, with his 'Let The Night Roar' LP on Ninja Tune having gained critical acclaim across the board from dubstep and electronica critics alike. Dubbed by DJ Mag as 'The modern master of satanic sub frequencies' Dylan's sets literally make the ground shake, so perhaps KOKO's gigantic mirror-ball is something to avoid standing beneath tonight?
