Pipedown are back and with the 7th installment of their monthly night they bring a pretty hardbody lineup to The Rhythm Factory this Saturday.
Without ELIJAH & SKILLIAM, grime really wouldn’t have the same look. Between their show on Rinse and their label Butterz they’ve pushed and help develop people like Terror Danjah, Swindle, Royal T, DOK, SRC, TRC, S-X and more. We had them at our very first party and they caused just a bit (read lots) of damage – we’re so excited to have them back.
Then there’s CHAMPION, he’s produced some of funky’s biggest tunes, we’re talking “Lighter” and “Tribal Affair”. 2011 will see his stock rise exponentially with releases on Terror Danjah’s label and his own. It’s funky alright but like Lil’ Silva he has as much in common with grime – upfront and uncompromising energy.
BAKE completes the line-up. He’s part of the All Caps crew and whilst that may not mean much to you now it will soon. They hail from Glasgow and regularly hold it down with some of native Numbers’ finest. Bake is a selector whose record bag runs deep, he’ll have you jackin’ till the early hours.
SDUK and CNTRST will be holding things down at either end.
Free entry all night long – 10pm – 5am at The Rhythm Factory, 16-18 Whitechapel Road, E1 1EW
The guys have also sent over the most recent promo mix, by BAKE. What starts with early house and techno records wanders through some UKG before ending up in current waters with exciting unreleased dubs including stuff from Pariah and Randomer. You can also find a recent mix that CHAMPION did for Fact Magazine here.
