Loefah, Boddika, Oneman
So..It's the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend and this is our little easter egg to you with a special Swamp 81 and 502 Recordings soundclash at Clwb Ifor Bach
Seen by many as one of the founding fathers of dubstep and innovators of the scene, we canâ€™t even begin to describe his back catalogue of releases, including some of the seminal releases of the last 10 years on labels such as DMZ, Big Apple and Tectonic. Recently and perhaps most famously Loefah has re-invented himself and founded the hottest label in the UK at the moment, Swamp 81. With Swamp, Loefah has signed the likes of Boddika, Addison Groove, Joy Orbison, Ramadanman and many more, and each of these has had arguably their biggest and best releases to date on the label. As if that wasnâ€™t enough Loefah holds down a regular Rinse FM slot. With sets that are widely renowned as being extra special and fusing the new with the old, make sure you make it down for this one.

â€¢â€¢â€¢BODDIKAâ€¢â€¢â€¢ (Swamp81/Naked Lunch, NonPlus+)
With electronic music becoming more polished and quantized, Boddikaâ€™s arrival has shaken the scene to its very core, slamming down with a raw take on things thatâ€™s making all journalists scramble for the right genre tag. Is it electro? Techno? Old? New? Harking the expansive sounds of Luke Vibert, the analogue programming of Juan Atkins early work, and the rawness of the Drexciya/Dopplereffekt family, Boddika is the newest project of Al Green, 1/2 of the boundary-pushing duo thatâ€™s re-written the rules completely, Instra:mental.

â€¢â€¢â€¢ONEMANâ€¢â€¢â€¢ (Rinse FM/502 Recordings)
He's back! You may have heard of Oneman for being 502 Recordings head honcho, 502 of course being home to Fis-T and his monster Nighthunter EP as well as other newcomers Jay Weed & Teeth. You may also have heard of him for his infamous Rinse FM Sunday night show which seems to lock down their servers on a regular basis as well as compiling the most recent Rinse mix CD. Labelled as the DJ's DJ by many respected figures including Bok Bok and Jackmaster who label his mixing as 'metronome tight'. You have to see it believe it, after all where would you see the latest moody dubs mixed into Kelis or the new Jamie XX riddled with 50 Cent lyrics?
