After three rammed parties, Days Like That are teaming up with one of the UK’s best new labels - Local Action, and heading south...
They have managed to finally pin down a man they have been after ever since their first party, and are hyped to announce a headliner that was responsible for establishing the 2-step template from day dot and taking it to places way beyond its time back in the late ‘90s – Noodles!
One half of the legendary Groove Chronicles duo with El-B, their productions remain a massive influence on the UK’s constantly evolving dance music scene, and 1998’s ‘Stone Cold’ is considered by many – including Burial – to be the defining garage track.
Days Like That resident DJ Para was also part of one of UK garage’s greatest groups - DEA Project, and he’ll be playing a set showcasing his new Yosh! Records label, which has been picking up support from DJs like Todd Edwards.
Representing for Local Action are three DJs that sum up all that’s fresh about London’s underground music scene in 2010...
Deadboy’s been responsible for some of the best dancefloor cuts of recent years, including the bonafide anthems ‘U Cheated’ and ‘If U Want Me’ (the latter on Glasgow’s trailblazing Numbers label), and as a DJ he’s one of the best around, cutting between garage, UK house and his brilliant R&B refixes.
Funkystepz currently host one of Rinse FM’s best shows, playing the freshest house and UK funky around with plenty of their own amazing remixes and individual productions.
Fis-T meanwhile has just released one of the biggest singles of the year, his staggering, floor-killing ‘Night Hunter’ – battered by Jackmaster, Loefah and Oneman. This guy has serious potential, and we’re beyond psyched to be presenting his debut set.
Finally, residents Tom Lea (Local Action) and MJE (Days like That) will be playing the best garage, house, dubstep and everything else in between.
