2012 witnesses the A Bunch of Cuts collective flip the script once more; after stints at The Arches and Cable, ABoC is going Warehouse!
Thereâ€™s a lot of â€˜Secret East Londonâ€™ Warehouse action in the capital right now, but no one has really brought the Beats and the Bass to one of these spaces - until now. Itâ€™s time for D&B to step into the arena and with the change of scenery, a change of format...
The ABoC parties this year will see one of the five residents curate the line-up each time. For the very first edition of these, the ever consistent D-Bridge presents something really rather special as his Exit Records label night â€˜Aptitudeâ€™ takes centre stage. Alongside A Bunch of Cutsâ€™ five resident DJs and three resident MCs, thereâ€™s a b2b session from Dub Phizix & Skeptical (authors of 2011â€™s breakout voodoo roller â€˜Markaâ€™), plus the dreadlocked Cylon warrior that is Loxy and straight outta Melbourne, Joe Seven â€“ all members of the Exit stable.
The other major change accompanying the new format is the inclusion of a room two providing an alternative to the main room madness. D Bridge has invited his good friend Damon Drama (Instra:mental), now producing under the alias Jon Convex with a new imprint Convex Industries to match, to host the room. Heâ€™s sure to bring the warped Electro and Techno from his recent releases on his own label and Non Plus+. On top of that Alex Smoke presents his stunningly twisted â€˜Wraetlicâ€™ live show, as well as a live set from the master of the sparse and dark â€“ Consequence. To top it all off D-Bridge will be playing a rare Jungle set.
The space itself benefits from a much warmer feel than most â€˜Warehouseâ€™ events as, unlike the majority of them (which are usually in Car Parks, often stark and industrial), our venue is actually a former warehouse where people had to work! And crucially, both rooms will be kitted out with a Funktion One system as installed by system scientists Sound Services. What more could you possibly ask for?
Full venue address details will be mailed out to ticket holders in due course. Please do not forget to bring details of the last four digits of the card the ticket was bought with. See you out East!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: This event is advance ticket only â€“ there are only 700 tickets available online and once they are gone, theyâ€™re gone! All the London A Bunch of Cuts events so far have been sell outs taking place in 1000+ capacity venues (The Arches & Cable) with entry possible on the night, so please note that things are a little different this time round!
