August sees SOCIETY and Raindance Jenkins Lane join forces to bring you An Exploration of Underground Dance Music with over 30 pioneers of the scene - info on that one here: http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?273635
In celebration we’re putting together an intimate basement party with RAGGA TWINS, UNCLE DUGS, SLACKK, CLASS OF 808 DJs and a special guest.
Flinty Badman and Deman Rocker revolutionised dance music at the start of the 1990s, combining ragga toasting and hip hop influences over breakbeat hardcore. Tracks like Spliffhead, Hooligan 69, Wipe The Needle and The Homeless Problem are absolute anthems and tore apart warehouses back in the day, but it’s live that Ragga Twins really come into play. Perfectly complimenting tracks with *proper* toasting and heating up venues wherever they go, you’ll never forget a Ragga Twins set.
Dugs is a true veteran. Now best-known for his weekly show on the fully legal Rinse FM, Uncle Dugs is a name synonymous with the airwaves, from running pirate Rinse FM to his weekly Connoisseur Mondays show on Kool FM, Dugs has blessed many an ear-drum with his enviable selection of Acid House, Hardcore and Jungle. Dugs will be dropping a tightly mixed selection of ‘87-’90 acid house.
Slackk is one of the new wave of DJ-producers influenced by the Acid House and breakbeat Hardcore sound. Now signed to Numbers, Slackk has found himself labelmates with the likes of Jamie xx, Jackmaster, Deadboy, Hudson Mohawke and Lory D and judging by the reaction to his first release ‘Theme From Slackk’, he’s going to be just as big very soon. If you’ve seen Slackk live you’ll know he can tear apart a dancefloor and this set is guaranteed to leave you gasping for more, which is great because he’s playing at the next SOCIETY with Number head-honcho Jackmaster.
RATTUS RATTUS (URBAN NERDS)
Pure party mash-up! Everything and anything from dubstep & grime to bassline, electro and dark, dirty beats! As well as being an Urban Nerds selector from day one, Rattus Rattus has ventured out into UK clubland to regularly spin at a number of top underground nights including Vagabondz and Bigger than Barry. Un-phased by any genre, his unique mixing style and one off brand of mash-up mayhem when it comes to tunes makes Rattus a top favourite among Urban Nerdy punters looking to get their rave on! Expect to hear a rare set of acid bleeps and hardcore bass when Rattus plays for us at SOCIETY.
