The Star of Kings
Somehow.. we are in August already. So we have put our heads together and and organised something that makes the prosepct of September a little less depressing. On the 2nd September we invite you to Exhibition #1, the first in a series of nights giving you the best in street fashion and music. Starting off at 8pm, we will be showcasing the freshest, up and coming streetwear labels along with some serious talent behind the decks to keep you moving untill 4am!
HACKMAN (PTN/ Greco roman)
Hackmans sound is characterised by warm analog sub bass and asymmetric percussion layered over a 4×4 base. But theres an abundance of interesting groove and warm bass in the 130ish/funky spectrum: what makes Hackmans sound stand out from the crowd is a great propensity for saccharine sweet melodies that contrast with the dark sub and scattered drums. These melodies seem to echo MJ Coles turn of the millennium 2step productions, with lush touches despite a tuff club exoskeleton.
Hackman – Closer
Hackman’s Fact Mix
GRAPHICS (Shifting Peaks/ Haunted Audio)
Oxford producer Graphics, is more than just your next future garage superstar. Listening to his two new tunes ‘OK Rainbow and Adjectival E have been described by FACT magazine as, ‘being immersed in subtropical heatstroke, fogged so that every element sounds just slightly obscured and mysteriously smokescreened. OK Rainbow cultivates its atmosphere with a crushing bassline that fissures the ground beneath, and takes almost three minutes of unsettling murmuring to coalesce into its stunning breakdown of unstable synths, plummeting basslines and the most soulful chipmunk vocals’
