Four years is a long time to maintain at the front line of promoting electronic music, especially in a city as diverse as Liverpool. Indeed, that is something that Abandon Silence are celebrating this May with their Fourth Birthday Celebrations taking place across a (hopefully) sunny afternoon and evening in late May, taking in sunshine vibes in an outdoor setting before hosting two of bass music's true legends in the iconic Kazimier club.
Abandon Silence have embodied the old promoter's mantra of 'walk before you can run' from the top down, with this Birthday Party being their largest show to date. Launching in June 2010 with Sbtrkt and Mele performing, for two years they maintained a fortnightly residency in the intimate Shipping Forecast venue with artists such as Disclosure, James Blake, Four Tet and Mount Kimbie playing. Two years in, Abandon Silence started moving into larger spaces in Liverpool, with artists such as Joy Orbison, Mano Le Tough, Bicep and Boddika performing at East Village Arts Club and The Kazimier, now they move onto their 4th Birthday with an epic 14 hour Day and Night Party.
Taking in two shows in one day, things kick off at 2pm in the outdoor Kazimier Gardens with some of the finest sunshine selectors. Berlin's Session Victim headline with a live set, and are amply supported by Romare, Unkwn (live) and local heroes No Fakin, Luke Bolton and resident DJ Andrew Hill.
Once the light turns in, the Party heads to Part Two, the Clubshow in side The Kazimier as Mala and Kode 9 co-headline the show. Quite a departure from their recent bookings, Abandon Silence harks back to it's roots with two of Bass Music's legendary figures representing DMZ and Hyperdub respectively.
Those disappointed by a lack of 4/4 in the Main Room will be happy to hear that one of London's leading clubnights, Church, will host the Rat Alley with their resident Djs Seb Wildblood (Madtech Records) and Apes playing an extended b2b set.
The Bandstand Party is set to sell out, with the final 25 tickets on sale now. With this Main Room announcement, the final 200 tickets for the Club Party go on sale now, all available at this link... http://skdl.it/1ixW0Nm
