Streets Of Beige are pleased to announce the launch of their new off-shoot night, NBA Jam Vs Windows 95, at the Rhythm Factory this Saturday 24th September.
With an even more blatant nod to 90's games console culture, NBAJvsW95 eschews the overtly experimental nature of it's mother clubnight in favour of full-on party vibes, whilst still retaining an incredibly forward-thinking music policy. And it would be difficult to think of any rising star that better fits the bill than Magic Touch, aka Damon Palermo of Mi Ami, whose well crafted debut twelve inch on 100% Silk pushes an overtly 90's house sound with a choppy analogue nature that would be more likely found in early Chicago house.
Alongside him is a trio of US talent, with Local Action signing Contakt showcasing his heavily London-influenced bass selection, as well as Ghosts On Tape's hyperactive party antics and Rem Koolhaus, referred to as the Ben UFO of the US. Representing the UK we have Elsewhere, whose crafted grime instrumentals and eclectic bass outings have led to some high praise from XLR8R and remixes for Ghost Poet and Visionist.
Earlier in the evening we have live PAs from two of London's finest MCs - Raptor, of Dcypha fame, with his heavy production and upfront rhymes contrasting with Kulez's grimier take makes for a raucous concoction. Room 2 duties are taken up by new London hip-hop collective, Sterling.
