brings his exclusive dubplates to the show and takes the stage with Sharda,
whose work has been described as a collision of throbbing basslines, rushing
piano melodies and elastic vocals.
We will also announce a special guest in due course and trust us when we
say it’s going to be deep, loud and very very heavy.
