!Kaboogie mark their second birthday this week with a label fundraiser featuring Rag & Bone Records’ Warlock.
The next episode in the !kaboogie cartoon is very important to us cause we are gonna be celebrating our second birthday AND fundraising for imminent !kaboogie vinyl/mp3 releases. So, to mark the occasion, we have got a whopper line-up that will guarantee nasty skankin from start to finish.
We are delighted to be hosting a man like Warlock, a !kaboogie favourite. The man hails from the south of London and runs tings at Rag&Bone Records with his partner Noyeahno. Rag&Bone and (upcoming sub-label Starksound) have been dishing out some deliciously rotten releases from the likes of Aaron Spectre, Drop the Lime, Starkey and Blackmass Plastics as well as Warlock and Noyeahno themselves. The sound they are nurturing is bass heavy and dark, gleaning the heft and steppa vibe of dubstep but melding it with more engaging and original crunching beats. Right up our street. Warlock has been djing since the acid house days and was steeped in the free party techno scene throughout the nineties. He has released with Sebastian from Spiral Tribe [69db] and compiled techno compilations for Kickin Records. This man is gonna wreck the place.
Before Warlock we will be treated to two a Dublin’s absolute finest djs, Sunil Sharpe and Thatboytim, who will be at hand to grind up the dancefloor. Having just launched one of the most interesting record ventures in Ireland recently with Mantrap Records you can bet on Sunil rinsing artsits from his stable such as Ed Devane, Rory St. John and Magnetize. Thatboytim(Takeover Records) is a guranteed party rocker and his mash up style is irresistable.
Finally, we are hyped to have one of the most promising young Irish producers out there, Major Grave, delivering us a kaboogie special live set. Grave has emerged as one a the new hot potatoes in the increasingly exciting Dublinstep scene. Big tings…
We will be giving out a limited number of !Kaboogie Records sampler cds on the night featuring the likes a 2-bit, Grizzle, Ed Devane, Prince Kong, Major Grave, Simon Lynch, A-Force,The Nihilist and Nedule and Lakker. Expect bass…
We will be pressing some vinyl e.p. releases over the coming months and need some wedge to finance the whole thing so please show your support for the Dublin Bass Buzz.
