After a brief hiatus (a year to be exact), Transition has resurfaced; this time amongst the lush confines of the CAMP in Old Street. Keeping in tune with all things deep and dark amidst soul and funk, Transition 2.0 sees a line up that catapults the ethos a notch further.
Heading the bill is a highly faceted sound – Om Unit initially honed his craft constructing beats for artists in the UK rap circuit including Foreign Beggars and Jehst. Since then he's remixed on an array of prime labels including Ghostly International and Ninja Tune. Om Unit's recent effort, and self penned release on Civil Music, The Timps, ventures into the cosmos of sci-fi-esque electro... Something of an aural pleasure.
Next up to the platters is Brisol based Kowton, who has made a name for himself with a less-is-more method to his production output. With only four releases over four years, Kowton's sound tackles the borders of techno, house and 2-step, while always maintaining seductive rhythms and an all round ruggedness. The latest of the four releases is a ride into the housier tip, which blends the jack of Chicago with the ridgedness of UK garage.
Setting the pace for the evening is Ben Boe. A true head, responsible for nurturing one of London's most honest deep house labels on the circuit – Boe Recordings. Releases from Kink, Leif, Deymare and Ladzinski give an idea of the sheer deepness that will be warming the house up.
As ever, the sounds of Transition will accompany the stella line up with soul-ridden niceties, sinister grooves and a whole lotta technoid funk. You get the gist. And aside from some Royal occasion, entry is also free, so not many reasons for bailing out.
