RP Boo, Mark Fell, Iydes b2b Seb
Our ninth party sees two legendary artists make their way down to the basement. Chicago’s RP Boo is widely credited for inventing footwork while Yorkshire’s Mark Fell makes hyper-rhythmic dance music that’s truly unique. Both have been releasing music for the best part of 20 years and it’s unlikely that you’ll see them on the same line-up or in such an intimate space in London again. See you down front.
RP BOO (TEKLIFE/PLANET MU)
Windy City native RP Boo sparked footwork when he wrote the track ‘Baby Come On’ in 1997. Fast forward to 2015 and Boo remains at the vanguard of the sound: he’s part of the highly influential Teklife crew and has released two incendiary albums via Planet Mu. His style is raw and frenetic yet full of soul and he hits Tropical Waste as part of his first world tour.
MARK FELL (EDITIONS MEGO/RASTER-NOTON/PAN)
1997 also marked the release of the first record from Shirt Trax, aka Mark Fell and Jeremy Potter. From that point on, Fell’s gone on to enjoy a career working on a myriad of projects: snd (with Matt Steel), collaborations with DJ Sprinkles, Errorsmith and Gábor Lázár, solo work that’s landed on Editions Mego and raster-noton, among a host of others, and exhibitions/installations held at a range of contemporary art spaces. At Tropical Waste, he’ll deliver one of his notorious, head-spinning live performances.
IYDES B2B SEB (NTS)
On warm-up duties are Tropical Waste residents Iydes and Seb. Expect the kind of visceral bump 'n' grind that they showcase every month on their NTS show.
