Line-up /-Bok Bok (Night Slugs) ft Kelela
-Ikonika (Hum + Buzz)
-Shy One (DVA Music)
-Morgan Zarate (Hyperdub)
-Optimum (Hum + Buzz)
Hum + Buzz take over the Peckham Palais with another line up specially curated by label bosses Ikonika and Optimum.
Top of the bill is Bok Bok, an artist who's left an indelible mark on the London club scene. With the L-Vis 1990, he runs the influential Night Slugs label and clubnight. As a producer and DJ, Bok Bok's sound remains at the cutting edge of underground club culture, simultaneously referencing the sonic heritage of 8 bar grime and classic Chicago house music. He also designs the majority of Hum + Buzz artwork, making it fitting that he should come through and bless the decks at their sophomore party.
Shy One takes the low slung framework of UK Funky and infuses it with her own fizzing synths and off-key melodies. Her unique sound caught the attention of Scratcha DVA, who released her debut album Bedknobs and Boomkicks on his label late last year. The album is a tightly infectious package bubbling with ideas, and acts as strong calling card for the young London based producer.
Finally we have Morgan Zarate, the brains behind the dazzling Hookid and Broken Heart Collector EPs for Hyperdub. The former Spacek producer uses his roots in soul and hip hop to craft infectiously psychedelic R&B cuts, and his DJ sets are not to be missed.
Support on the night comes from Ikonika and Optimum, as well as the LDN DC.residents.
