It’s been a while since the last Out and About post here on FatKidOnFire – in part thanks to my somewhat lacking social life but also thanks to all my favourite venues being shut down here in London, the birthplace of dubstep. So yeah. But luckily, there are promoters across the UK (and further afield, but more on that later) that are still risking time and money to support the sound we know and love…
As far as first events go, this is quite possibly one of the best debut line ups I’ve ever seen. Alive and Steppin‘s got a fairly impressive mandate as well; revitalising the dubstep scene in Manchester.
“The first of many events to attempt to revitalise the dubstep scene in Manchester. Other cities have been thriving in 140 over the past 18 months or so, whilst Manchester has stood by and watched. We are fully focused on changing this, and cannot wait to bring you more of the music you want to see.”
Distance, Biome and Compa, along with the residents, are all gathering at NQ Live tonight so if you’re in the area, make it down and support these guys. I can’t wait to see who else they bring to the city! Find the event page here and buy the tickets here (it’s also £9 OTD).
Next up, one of the most exciting line ups we’ve seen in London since Submit decided they want to tear Plan B a new one with the extended Osiris Music family. On the 18th of July, two of my favourite labels, Pressed Records and Innamind Recordings, are joining forces…
Showcasing the best of both labels, ‘Exile’ at Plan B is a collaborative event with some of the best artists on both rosters. Featuring the sounds of Gantz (making his UK debut), Quantum Soul, Thelem, Ruckspin and Ipman. And Stig of the Dump and Kyza are hosting. What a fucking line up!
Plan B is a limited capacity venue, so we recommend securing a pre-sale to avoid missing out on the night. You can do so here. Find the event page here and find out who’s playing the afterparty stream on SUB.FM here.
Then there’s Soundboys.lt‘s latest event in Lithuania on the 19th. Featuring the sounds of Kryptic Minds and the one and only MC Toast…
See you by the speakers!
Peace, love and respect.
