FOUND & Days Like That present: Heritage. Heritage will pay homage to some of the most influential electronic sounds to emerge from Londonâ€™s rich tapestry of pioneering dance styles, combining original 2-step, UK garage and four-to-the-floor with todayâ€™s bass-led incarnations.

Pioneers such as Scott Garcia, Matt Jam Lamont, Slimzee and D.E.A. Project play alongside Keysound label heads Dusk & Blackdown and T.Williams delves deep into the box to join us for a one-off garage set. Many more names old & new to be announced soon.
Who remembers Groove Chroniclesâ€™ â€˜Stone Coldâ€™, Dem 2â€™s â€˜Destinyâ€™ and the sounds of Locked On Records?
Who remembers this one?
Celebrating one of the most influential and innovating sounds to emerge from London, FOUND and Days Like Thatâ€™s Heritage brings London a line-up packed with the UK garage originators that laid down the template and birthed so much of modern bass music (and dubstep) in the process.
Joining the dots between Londonâ€™s rich tapestry of pioneering garage-influenced dance styles, Heritage will cover the sound music from past to present â€“ taking in original 2-step, UK garage and four-to-the-floor with todayâ€™s bass-led incarnations.
Part of the Tuff Jam partnership that first pioneered the UK garage sound in the mid 90s, Matt â€˜Jamâ€™ Lamont will be playing a special â€˜Underground Frequenciesâ€™ set â€“ a homage to the ground-breaking Tuff Jam compilation of the same name. Both of the legendary Groove Chronicles duo - El B and Noodles â€“ will be dropping their own sets of classic garage vibes and showing why their classic productions influenced the formative sounds of acts like Burial and Skream.
In another legendary reference, East Londonâ€™s original grime pioneer Slimzee will be taking us back to a golden era when Dizzee and Wiley were regularly spitting on his dubplate-heavy sets. Moshi Moshiâ€™s Hot City and two-step dons Dem 2, the force behind the defining scene anthem â€˜Destinyâ€™, are also on the bill.
The heads behind one of 2011â€™s most forward thinking bass labels, Keysound label heads Dusk & Blackdown will be dusting off some of their favourite records for a special Roots of Dubstep set, while Local Actionâ€™s T. Williams also goes back to the old school with a rare garage set.
Adding yet more prestige to the party, Scott Garcia and DJ Para from underground legends DEA Project bring their Multi:ply brand to Heritage - with a line-up that includes dubstep forefathers Horsepower Productions, future garage champion Whistla, dark garage hero Narrows and Scott and Para themselves.
