Formula Records Presents @ East Village – 23/05 (Event)
After the storming success of the first edition, Champion brings his Formula Records imprint back to Shoreditch’s East Village for another night of hard-hitting dancefloor vibes.
This time around he’s enlisted the services of UK Funky cohorts Funkystepz for an exclusive back-to-back set that is sure to set the place alight with their raw and uncompromising styles going head to head. With Champion’s upcoming release on Butterz , the unmistakable ‘Crystal Meth’, showing his versatility as a producer expect no less from his DJ set either. Having recently release the Royal Rumble EP on their label, F.L.Y, as well as a string of stellar releases on Hyperdub – Funkystepz have carved their own niche within the UK Funky/Bass scenes respectively and have pricked up ears with their recent slew of edits of tracks by Usher and Rihanna.
UK Garage legend Sticky has been prominent since his seminal hits such as ‘Golly Gosh’ and ‘Triplets’ but nowadays you can see him mix it up across the board – with a selection that includes anything from Garage to UK Funky to Dancehall so expect the unexpected from the veteran.
Butterz label-heads and Rinse FM residents Elijah & Skilliam will be serving up a Grime onslaught and anyone that’s been to the legendary Butterz x Hardrive nights at Cable can attest to the levels of energy in their DJ sets. Rounding off things is Hyperdub and Hardrive regular D.O.K who will be mixing up a heap of his off-the-wall productions that regularly litter the sets of his close ally, Terror Danjah.
Champion has kindly recorded a mix especially for the night that features some music from the man himself as well as contributions from Funkystepz, Notion, DJ Naughty, Preditah and Terror Danjah. Click here to stream the mix and click here to download the mix.
