Never really recovering from the closure of venues such as The End, The Cross, Turnmills and Canvas and with clubs such as Plastic People under threat the London clubbing scene is crying out for something fresh. London promoters, We Fear Silence have taken over the Saturday night program at Bermondsey based venue Cable and announced a new start with a double header on the weekend of the 4th / 5th June, one year after it originally opened. Check elsewhere on this site for your chance to win a pair of tix for both nights.
Mixing a forward thinking music policy with an intimate vibe, reworked lighting and a bespoke Nova sound system from Germany, the new format will answer the prayers of clubbers across the city.
The opening weekend looks like back2back madness with FACT Magazine hosting Friday 4th, pulling in talent from across the Techno / Dubstep / Bass-led divide they champion including the UK debut of Scubas live set. The fun doesnt stop there; Modular will be looking after Saturday 5th with a DJ set from Annie and live performances from Tensnake and The Swiss.
The line up for the following seven weeks of Saturdays reveals names such as Goldie, Toddla T, Ben Watt, Boy 8-Bit, and Emalkay will be making an appearance. Cable is destined to become notorious for its potent and eclectic programming.
Said We Fear Silence founder Ryan Ashmore We’ve worked all hours since moving operations to Cable to ensure we deliver on absolutely every level. New lighting rigs have been installed, the already excellent sound system has been reconfigured and now sounds even more insane were competing with the bigger, more established clubs.
