We are back at Rye Wax Records for another Saturday day party.
Support comes from talented DJs who share our passion for vinyl and electronic music.
Nightshift was devised by two friends with a passion for playing electronic music on vinyl. Inspired by the urban sprawl of London, the Nightshift begins when the 9 to 5 ends.
** Mighty Atom - 2018 UK RedBull Music 3Style Champion **
Mighty Atom is synonymous with good music and has built his reputation as a DJ from selecting the very best from the whole spectrum of music for his multi genre turntable performances. From his critically acclaimed appearances on Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel show, to regularly dropping guest mixes on BBC 1Xtra. Mighty Atom has quietly been putting in work for over 2 decades, winning the 2018 UK Redbull Music 3Style competition as well as four UK DMC Team Championship titles with his crew, ‘The Disablists’, in the mid-2000s, including warming up for Rudimental on the mainstage at Bestival and supporting De La Soul.
** Markle & JBliss - 2nd Drop Records **
2nd Drop Records officially started in the womb like environs of Plastic People at a legendary dubstep and grime night called Fwd. As regulars, labels owners Mark Gurney and James Bliss had been soaking up the vibes from the small, but formative dubstep scene championed by Youngsta and co since 2005. It was here that the guys formed their love of bass music, but also the key relationships with the as yet unknown future stars – throwing gun fingers with Ramadanman front left, sharing zoots with Oneman, chatting to Skream, Benga, Distance and Rusko at the bar. Celebrating and hosting their 5th birthday at Fabric London was a highlight for the label.
As the label reaches its twelfth year, formative releases over the years have come from Djrum, Youandewan, Rusko, LV, Gerry Read, Tessela, Ramadanman, and Alex Coulton to name but a few....
