Loefah, Darkstar and Basement Jaxx will feature at the south London spot across the weekend.
After undergoing an extensive renovation in 2009, the club has featured solid and diverse weekly programming that has taken advantage of its new Funktion One sound system and 24-hour license. This Friday, south London's UK bass collective Deadly Rhythm will return for their regular namesake spot at the club, drafting in three of the leading leading names in the all-encompassing genre for the occasion. Headliner Loefah is revered for his role alongside Mala in popularising the sound of south London proto-dubstep via their DMZ imprint, and for pushing the boundaries further still with his own imprint Swamp 81, which has unearthed recent club bangers like Addison Groove's "Footcrab" and Ramadanman's "Work Them". He'll be joined by Hyperdub duo Darkstar, who will reprise their Deadly Rhythm appearance from earlier this year with a full live show, which will surely include material from their new synth-laden album North. The pair will be closely followed by Werk Discs head honcho and beat experimentalist Actress, who fleshed out his own accomplished full-length Splazsh for Honest Jons earlier this year. Hyperdub talent-in-training Morgan Zarate will complete the bill along with Leon and the Deadly Rhythm residents.
The following night, crossover chart-toppers and local heroes Basement Jaxx will take the reins for the second round of celebrations. Plan B's house, disco and techno Saturday night regular, Community, will host the affair, which will see the duo behind hits like "Where’s Your Head At" and "Good Luck" recapture the ribald spirit of their early-2000's club night Rooty. They will be joined by longtime purveyor of fractured beats and former Rooty resident Tayo, plus fellow local jock Raf Daddy and special guests.
