Rounding off the bank holiday weekend, Bristol legend Roni Size will be headlining an extended 3 hour set at Thekla alongside Dynamite MC until the early hours of Monday morning. Roni is one of the most respected Drum & Bass artists, with production credits spanning dozens of labels, projects, and releases. Size has produced stripped down underground classics like ‘Time Stretch’ to smoothly sophisticated Top 20 U.K. hit ‘Brown Paper Bag.’ His debut album New Forms was a top ten hit in the U.K. where it also won the Mercury Prize.
The Insiders + Collette Warren (Live)
Ben Payne and Joe Wills aka The Insiders have released music on some of the most prestigious labels in the drum & bass scene over the past decade. Tracks have appeared on Renegade, Metalheadz, Creative Source, 31 Records, Defunked, Integral, Good Looking, Intrigue Music and most recently, V Recordings. They’ll be joined with a live performance from Collette Warren. Collette has recently launched her debut artist EP: Hidden Lines. Almost two years in the making and developing her distinct jazzy dulcets that have previously been spotted over beats ranging from Skeptical to Break, Collette’s five track escapade reads like a near-royal D&B rollcall: Calibre, Marky, Tyler Daley, Quadrant & Iris, Random Movement, Charli Brix, Ben Soundscape and RoyGreen & Protone all feature.
Top deck takeover: Intrigue Music
Intrigue have been attracting crowds to their events since 2003, and their selection of guests and residents represent the deeper end of the drum & bass spectrum. Sets on the night from Octo Pi, Finesse, L.E.X, Lilac and Intrigue DJ competition winner CLOUWDS.
