Toddla T, Mosca, Mistamen, Stripes
If 2010’s New Year’s Eve celebrations are anything to go by – we welcomed the fabulous Jesse Rose who rocked the foundations of our humble basement – The Nest is going to be vibing until day break this 31st December. Situated in the depths of Dalston, our underground club haven will be reeling in hedonistic delight as the dimly lit dance floor moves to the sounds of our monster sound system. Promising a colossal line-up of some of the year’s most game-changing electronic talent, New Year’s Eve at The Nest promises an intimate rave-up centred around big, unabashed bass.
Toddla T is set to headline our New Year’s Eve proceedings with his mutant strain of feel good, bassy electronica. With 2011 spent in the studio he shares with Redlight, Toddla has managed to drop a number of chart-topping releases this year including the euphoric ‘Take It Back’ single featuring Shola Ama. Spurned on by a year of international sell out shows, the Sheffield dancehall aficionado returns to The Nest for some tropical, drum heavy bangers.
Mosca’s rough yet skilful rhythm focused house productions have been doing the rounds for a long while now. Arguably the underground release of the year, Mosca’s ‘Done Me Wrong/Bax’ single on Numbers catapulted him to the forefront of the UK bass movement and he’s had clubbers cutting serious rug ever since. As much at home headlining a dubstep rave as he is DJing to a deeper house crowd, this versatile London based artist will have you grooving to all manner of subtle and slamming selections as the night progresses.
Yorkshire born trio, Mistamen are also on board to bring the bass on 31st. Championing off kilter, low tempo house and garage inflected electronica, the Mistamen boys are a refreshing and unique support for the NYE festivities.
