Taking place on its traditional Maundy Thursday date, Bedrock returns to London this Easter for the first time since last October’s unforgettable Anniversary party. For the next instalment, Bedrock has chosen Area in Vauxhall for an intimate, three room showcase. With this event restricted to just 1000 tickets and hosted at a venue never used by Bedrock before, early booking is essential to guarantee your place. Following phenomenal feedback, label boss John Digweed will continue where he left off at Bedrock’s Anniversary by playing another extended seven hour main room set, showcasing the very best in underground house and techno. He will be joined by some illustrious guests, some of which will be playing Bedrock for the very first time.
The first addition to this carefully selected line-up is the excellent Tim Green. With material released on Cocoon, Get Physical, and Dirtybird, Tim possesses the ability to manoeuvre effortlessly through the realms of house and techno based on his original underground roots. Having recently released a four track EP ‘Three Days Ago’ on Flumo Recordings, music lovers from all over will be eager to witness Tim’s performance as he headlines room two of our Easter showcase.
As one of the finest DJs and producers we have ever had the privilege of listening to, we are delighted to welcome Global Communication’s Tom Middleton to Bedrock. Having been on our hit list for many years, Tom’s outstanding musical repertoire is set to be received excellently by the Bedrock faithful, as he showcases the talent that has remixed the likes of Underworld, Model 500 and Leftfield and worked closely with Aphex Twin and Mark Pritchard.
With a strong emphasis on the warmer, deeper end of the house spectrum, Jimpster’s approach has found him DJing at the world’s most elite clubs such as Fabric, Panorama Bar, Watergate and Cielo. As well as co-running labels Freerange and recently launched Delusions of Grandeur, Jimpster has built up an exceptional reputation for his remixing ability having worked with top industry figures such as Joris Voorn, Osunlasde, Solomun and Josh Wink. With superb new track ‘These Times’ supported by Dixon and Manuel Tur remixes and a fifth studio LP on Freerange scheduled for an early May release, we proudly welcome Jimpster to the Bedrock Easter line-up.
Finally John Barber, resident DJ at Southampton’s underground bunker Junk, completes our line-up alongside Lowbit Records who return following their label showcase at the Anniversary event. Representing this evolving, forward-thinking imprint will be Sonic Union, Wade Bennett, GRG, Dale Middleton and Chris Richardson.
The past twelve months has seen Bedrock exercise its ability to constantly grow and adapt to the ever evolving electronic music scene. Label showcases at South West Four, BPM Festival and Amsterdam Dance Event have been complimented by standout appearances from John Digweed at Timewarp, Awakenings, Space Ibiza, Womb Tokyo and Fabric. Bedrock’s Easter party will once again provide an overload of the senses at an underground London venue and is certainly not to be missed by fans of quality electronic sounds.
