After two amazing sessions in July, Deviation returns to The Gramaphone basement for the first of our August sessions with special guests Quest & Actress.
Actress is responsible for one of our favourite LPs of the year and we’ve been looking forward to having him play Deviation for quite a while. He released the ‘Splazsh’ LP on Honest Jon’s Records ea...rlier this year, with previous releases including records on Aus, Prime Numbers, Various Productions and his very own Werk Discs record label, home to likes of Zomby, Lone and Lukid. He’s also worked and remixed the likes of Joy Orbison, Martyn and Kode 9 to name a few. Known for his passion of rare groove, boogie and soulful music past and present, and for his futuristic productions, we look forward to seeing what Actress finds in his crates for his DJ set at Deviation.
Our second guest DJ is Quest, who has created a one of our favourite tunes this year with the cut ‘Smooth Skin’. Signed to Deep Medi Musik records, and part of West London’s Anti Social Entertainment crew alongside the likes of Silkie, Kromestar and Mizz Beats to name a few, he is best known for productions in the style that most would call dubstep. But as Smooth Skin showed, he is a versatile producer across the tempos and no doubt the opportunity to play a Deviation set will mean we are treated to a super deep selection. We are all looking forward to hearing what Quest has in his box at his Deviation debut.
Resident DJ Benji B will be holding down the decks for the rest of the session alongside host MC Judah as usual.
Please arrive early to avoid disappointment on the door.
See you on the dancefloor...
