One of the UK's biggest DJ's & Producer's confirmed for Global Virus @ masons on October 3rd
Sam Simpson aka Baobinga, hailing from Manchester, is one of the most respected names in the ever evolving and innovative breakbeat scene and will be making his Irish debut at Global Virus, Masons venue, Derry on October 3rd.
Baobing's has spent over two years jetting around the world, including stops at The End and Fabric in London, 1015 in San Francisco, Baby Face in China and Space in Ibiza, crafting his unmistakeable trademark style, rooted in the rhythms of Techno & Breakbeat (in a way only a drummer would know how) yet still able to explore the deeper, more melodic side of electronic music.
Sam's outstanding work includes a host of releases, under various alter ego's such as 'Baobinga & I.D' (Fat! Records), 'Pablo Beatz' (Guerrilla Tactics) and the new 'Body Snatchers' project with 30Hz , which has produced some outstanding remixes for likes of The Stanton Warriors, Krafty Kuts, Tayo (Radio 1) Rico Tubbs and Dylan Rhymes. Also, with constant support coming from the Plump DJs, Rennie Pilgrem, The Stanton Warriors and General Midi, the Baobinga magic really does start to speak for itself.
For more information, check out www.myspace.com/baobinga, and be sure to listen to the 'Baobinga Mix' – a wonderful example of the madness coming your way!
Support on the night will come from Hago & Jonny Boy (Global Virus residents) who promises to lay down some of the freshest breaks, beats & bass heavy treats to keep ya movin!
This is a pay at the door event and due the intimate size of the venue, numbers are limited so please be early to guarantee entry. Admission is £5, Doors - 10PM
