The recent mass arrest of antifascists in London and anti-SDL events closer to home mean that there’s a need for real, practical, financial support for people putting themselves on the line against fascism.
Once again, we’re unbelievably stoked to have so many talented people on board with what we’re doing. People like:
Expert DJ, sought after producer, prolifically ace remixer, taste-making Label Owner and clubnight promoter- it’s difficult to talk about JD Twitch and the Optimo clubnight he co-founded without lapsing into superlatives. The Quietus described Optimo (Espacio) as ‘Scotland’s most (rightfully) celebrated club night’ and, 3 years after the duo stopped doing regular weekly nights, they seem as busy and vital as ever.
Young Fathers DJs
Let’s not mince our words; Young Father’s ‘Tape Two’ is one of the best records of 2013. The band’s second release on American alt-hip-hop
bastion Anticon, it’s explosion of the pop / experimental hip-hop binary is peerless in the UK scene. For this gig we’ll get a chance to see
Edinburgh trio play some of their favourite records, dance about and perhaps even take the mic a bit too – all fresh from a new Friday night
slot on BBC Radio 1 Xtra.
‘The best Scottish rap group in the world … ever! ‘ The Guardian
’LISTEN TO THIS, IT SOUNDS LIKE NOTHING ELSE OUT THERE, IT IS SO AMAZING’ Vice
Currently seemingly happy to bask in the allure generated by her astonishing ‘Hustle’ video, LAW, one of the Young Father’s ‘Family’ but
clearly a singular talent in her own right, gives us a live demonstration of why she’s pretty much the most exciting new musical prospect in the city right now.
