Line-up /Loefah, MC CHUNKY, BENNY2TONE, CITYJAXX, MAY BAILEY
The ninth installment of 808 is here.
the one we all have been waiting for.....LOEFAH + CHUNKY
The seminal producer, SWAMP 81 label boss, and pioneer of bass music, LOEFAH was formative in the creation of the now worldwide scene of dubstep. His own production was initially well known for his much respected bass weight and half time beat pattern, well illustrated by his productions such as ‘Horror Show’, ‘Mud’ and ‘Ruffage’.
in 2009, he chose a new path and started his own label SWAMP 81 which better reflected his developing direction in underground music. As "dubstep" grew further and further from its roots and became increasingly commercial, LOEFAH turned his attention to an emergent new hive of creativity to create the home label, SWAMP 81, with a steady stream of output from the likes of SKREAM, PINCH, INSTRA:MENTAL, PEARSON SOUND, BODDIKA, MICKEY PEARCE and ZED BIAS, The releases display a like minded dedication to weighty electronic music and that is what has made the ripples world wide for this label.
Whilst LOEFAH continues to tour veraciously worldwide, his music increasingly progresses into new territory, pushing the sound of SWAMP 81 and the UK's underground scene in general. along with putting out the monthly SWAMP 81 show along side MC CHUNKY on RINSE FM.

MC CHUNKY, his recent work alongside the SWAMP 81 head honcho LOEFAH has resulted in gigs across Europe and a monthly RINSE FM radio show.
Like a fast-spreading epidemic, there is hardly a festival or celebrated venue in the UK where Chunky has not united the dance; and – frighteningly – at the age of 23, he’s barely written the prologue.
Also this month for our guest spot, we welcome BENNY2TONE in his 808 debut, usually found on tremors radio every Thursday.
His sounds hark back to the early days of REAL dubstep, that deep medi ish....
As well as the 808 residents CITY JAXX and MAY BAILEY bringing more vibes than you can handle.
