PEDRO123 (Get Some / Liminal Sounds)

Birthdays, 33-35 Stoke Newington Road, N16 8BJ
FREE entry all night

Stepping up to Birthdays intimate DJ booth is none other than one of grimes biggest talents Terror Danjah. Alongside peers like Wiley, Dizzee Rascal,
Dirty Danger and Target, Terror Danjah helped construct the inimitable futuristic sound of grime in the early noughties. Tracks like Cock Backand Industry Standard changed the game, whilst his recent work for Elijah & Skilliams Butterz label and Kode9s Hyperdub imprint has seen Terror deliver some of the most forward thinking underground music out there (just check out last years Dark Crawler with Riko). To this day Terror Danjahs trademark gremlin sample continues to warn dancefloors theyre about to be slain and this is set to be no exception.

A man who needs little introduction if youve been following Hyponik.com, Altered Natives is another long serving soldier of the UK underground. First coming through in the days before broken beat became a dirty phrase, Danny Native has built a reputation on hard graft, an uncompromising attitude and seriously heavyweight percussion. With his Eye4Eye label releasing a wealth of his own deeply rhythmic Bruk-House material, and his Tenement Yard
series continuing to level peoples expectations of just what can be done with rudeboi house music, Altered Natives can be expected to deliver a set of ahead-of-the-game house/garage/bass/techno refractions.

A former Rinse FM Academy talent, Pedro123s take on stripped grime and
house has seen him picked up by frontier labels like Get Some, Liminal
Sounds and MadTech, producing a distinctive take on the strongest sounds
emanating from the UKs very best soundsystems. Clipped rhythms, heritage
grime samples and a nifty way with a vocal has seen the likes of Monki and
Slackk reaching for P123s tracks, not to mention receiving support from RA,
Sonic Router and of course ourselves.

Support comes in the form of the Hyponik Residents, and as ever the whole
thing is FREE last time we were looking at a one-in-one-out situation
before midnight, so make sure you head down early.
