W.A.T.? presents WHAT ABOUT THE BEATS? Launch Night @ THE TUBE
BANK HOLIDAY SUNDAY 24TH APRIL
We are very proud to announce that W.A.T? are kickstarting their brand new night 'What About The Beats?' @ Brighton's freshest venue THE TUBE. *Click 'See more' for full details*
...To get things hyped in an equally as fresh manner we shall be hosting some names at the forefront of new electronic music from across the globe. Spanning from Los Angeles to Brighton via Manchester and London - special guests KUTMAH + DANNY DRIVE-THRU shall ensure a musical Bank Holiday extravaganza - details below:
* KUTMAH (Low End Theory / Dublab)
- Where to begin... The tour with Flying Lotus? Or the shows with Gaslamp Killer, Samiyam, Dabrye, Saul Williams and Gonjasufi? Maybe his DJ sets and Sketchbook Sessions in LA or perhaps the international tour dates with his art exhibition 'Two Soups And A Honeybun'? Add on top of this a quite frankly astonishing life story and you have Kutmah.
Expect an astounding mix of both classic and cutting edge tunes, everything from The Smiths to unreleased Madlib exclusives to some ridiculous, ridiculous dubstep, laced with hard boom bap hip-hop and you're not even halfway there.
Not one to miss at all.
* DANNY DRIVE-THRU (Fat City Records / Mind On Fire)
- Did you hear the one about Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke DJing alongside Flying Lotus at Low End Theory in LA the other week? Yeah you know the one. Where he dropped an 8-bit version of "Ante Up" and the entire place went off? Meet Danny Drive-Thru. Creator of gully Amstrad bangers, bouncy funk numbers remixing the likes of Sneaky (Fingathing), stomping bluegrass versions of Slum Village - plus progressive, driving rhythms such as "Prescience" featured on the Nihon Kizuna benefit compilation.
Mr. Drive-Thru has been a solid part of the Manchester hip-hop and beat scene, playing alongside peers like Illum Sphere, DJ A-Up, Andy Peek, Martin Brew, Funky Fresh Few, Mr. Scruff, Mind On Fire and many, many more. After his tunes have been dropped into DJ sets and mixtapes globally thanks to plaudits such as the Stones Throw Podcast - we reckon it's a perfect chance to let him rip it up down in Brighton.
