++10 years of the UK's underground evolution in one night as Hyponik celebrate a decade in the game with special guests, friends and family++
From our time spent as London's premier promo team, developing alongside the then burgeoning dubstep scene and booking many of the genres early stars, taking over Fabric in one of the clubs biggest ever recorded Bank Holiday shows in the late noughties and playing an integral role to London's world-beating club scene, through to rejuvenating our online presence to push a new generation of artists, producers and DJs, Hyponik's ten years existence in the capital's ever-changing electronic music scene is an achievement in itself. Always sticking to an ethos of open minded musical interest, and doing our best to avoid temporary trends and surface level fashions, Hyponik has aimed to be an honest reflection of the UK's cutting edge dancefloors, studios and pockets of talent - from the hardrive to the dancefloor and beyond.
Friday 19th October will see the Hyponik crew out in force as we take over Dalston's Birthdays venue for an intimate friends and family affair, taking in some of the UK's very best bass-led talent to celebrate our tenth anniversary. Headlining is a secret special guest and an artist who's spanned the past 10 years of development, finding a home on one of the UK's finest independent labels in the form of Hyperdub Recordings, providing the very finest bass inflections and UK funky mutations as standard.
Next up we see Blunted Robots boss and Rinse FM stalwart Brackles following his recent "Rinse Presents..." album success with what's bound to be a superb set of house, garage, UK funky and more. His weekly Rinse show continues to blow up some of the very best dancefloor music from across Europe, whilst his own productions like the recent 'Chasing Crazy' meld soul vocals, UK underground rhythms and pure bass tectonics.
Mr. Beatnick is man who's productions have echoed the UK scene, as his instrumental hip-hop productions have morphed into a series of in demand releases released via London's own Don't Be Afraid Recordings. Mixing up house, boogie and soul into a heavily addictive package. Mr. Beatnick's sets provide the best in classic and modern day house, with his own distinctive crate-digging flavour.
Rounding off the bill will be one of our current favourite new talents Lakosa, a Northern producer making the best in stepping 'UK bass' cuts that takes influence from garage, house, jungle, soul and more, and has seen him recently picked up by Kerri Chandler's Madtech Records. One-to-watch for 2013, and undoubtedly a man who knows a thing or two about getting a dancefloor bubbling.
Support comes from the Hyponik Residents, who'll be pulling for classics, forgotten gems, cutting edge dubs and more, spanning the full ten years of pure music, parties, tears, joy, broken bones, nudity, drunken behaviour and more than a few dancefloor epiphanies.
