Begrime is back! We’ve teamed up with the DARK REAL DARK Crew to deliver you a truly versatile lineup on two floors that leaves nothing to be desired.
Jamakabi (Rhythm Rollers/Keysound/Bandulu)
He would class himself as a "Dancehall flavored Grime emcee/artist". As one of the original legendary Roll deep members, he has since paved the way for many to follow in his big size 10 footsteps. As A&R and Director of Rhythm Rollers record's he passes on the legacy to the next generation of grime artists, making sure to keep the lyrical torch burning. 100% Reload guarantee when he draws for da belt buckle!
JLSXND7RS (Dark Knight/CTA Records/Coyote Records)
He has steadily established himself as the de facto kingpin of Dutch grime. The producer has earned plaudits from Red Bull Music and The FADER as well as prominent radio DJs: Sir Spyro, Slimzee and Logan Sama. In 2017, he ticked off an achievement at the top of any grime producer’s bucket list: Wiley. He supplied the beats for My Direction and the hit single 6 in the Bloodclart Morning. In 2019 he set up his record label Dark Knight, singing infamous artists such as Rocks FOE, Jook, Boofy & Hi5Ghost, kicking things off with the release of a longtime dubplate anthem 'Marching', accompanied by Caspa and Jook remixes.
Sun People (Through These Eyes/Rua Sound/Beat Machine)
Since 2011, Simon H. from Graz has been merging footwork, jungle and UK Hardcore Continuum influences to create his own distinctive sound. With releases on labels like
Alphacut, Beat Machine, Good Street or Modern Ruin, he has made a name for himself in the international 160BPM scene over the years.
In addition to remix jobs, gigs, and his own productions as Sun People, Simon/off or Mighty Buha, Simon also pursues his musically versatile vision in a four-weekly
radio show on London's Sub.FM. In the summer of 2017, with the jungle and dub oriented 12" on the Berlin label Through These Eyes, he confronts the rightward shift in politics with the track "Fight Dem Back", which has ended up in playlists by Om Unit, Fracture, DJ Madd, Fixate and many more. This event will also function as the
record release party for his 'Stumble & Grow' EP on Through These Eyes, which marks yet another collection of high-energy, genreb(l)ending gems.
