Adrian Sherwood, Various Production, V.I.V.E.K. & Remi Kabaka
If you hadn't guessed already, things seem to be going a bit carnival mental next week with our London shows. Although, we're usually pretty carnival anyway, you should see the office. Every desk has steel drums built into them and grass skirt Fridays are really starting to become a tradition. However, in terms of programming, this is passion for all things carnival-esque involves a show with some dub inspired heroes of ours all meeting up in a little room and getting the hell down to business.
Oh.. shit.. Adrian Sherwood is coming to Boiler Room, just after his new album 'Survival & Resistance' gets put out on On-U Sound! That's pretty special wouldn't you say? What with him being a musical legend and all that.
Now Various Production are going to be playing on the night as well, which for those in the know is something to go pretty crazy over. In terms of the bass-loaded end of the underground electronic music scene, this duo's productions have been both varied and awesome. Just be very excited ok!
The might V.I.V.E.K. is going to be playing some of his favourite music for you all too. The last time he was on people went nuts, and for months afterwards people kept talking about his set.
Now as the flyer has already pointed out Remi Kabaka is a part of the Gorillaz Soundsystem and was also involved in that ace DRC Music project. Two things linked to Damon Albarn that really make us think Remi is awesome.
