Roll deep, hit hard, move fast. SUB CITY returns in December with its distinctive curation of syncopated, bass-heavy beats from across the 160-170 bpm spectrum. Bassheads & Junglists, this is your home.
We are seeing out 2017 with a special treat as we host BLOCKS & ESCHER [UK]. Strongly backed by Metalheadz & label chief Goldie, they first made waves in the industry with ‘Shadow Play’ on ShyFX’s Digital Soundboy in 2011 [Listen: http://bit.ly/2j82D3o]. The following year saw them launch their own imprint Narratives Music, as an outlet for their emotive and forward thinking take on the 170BPM genre. The label name itself is derived from the images and stories perceived from their music and the way the audience may cast their own interpretation, and form their own subjective narrative.
With their artistic vision holding firm in the past 6 years, their work has been supported by D&B heavyweights such as Fabio, the late Marcus Intalex, DJ Hype & Alix Perez, and acknowledged by icons from outside the genre such as Jazzanova, Mary Ann Hobbs & Laurent Garnier. These works include essential remixes of music from Om Unit, Submotion Orchestra, Zomby’s Cult Music & Goldie’s Metalheadz. Looking forward, a debut album on Metalheadz is on the horizon!
Citing influences from a wide range of styles in music; from Ryuichi Sakamoto to Roots Manuva, Kate Bush to Blue Note Records; it was indeed Goldie who when asked to describe Blocks & Escher’s music stated, ‘…this is art.’
