Raw Beats is here! The summer kicks off with London's freshest and most exciting party as Raw Beats brings some of the best DJs and live acts to the Rhythm Factory, one of the capital's top venues. Mashing together sounds from across the electronic music spectrum, the night will host every stripe of Bass Music be it electro, house, breaks, rave, dubstep or techno. We're not worried about pigeon holes and genres but good tunes and having a great party!
The opening night will be an extra special event as the cadre of elite acts we've gathered together is stuffed to the gills with talent. Leading the pack will be ever innovative Trevor Loveys, best known as a versatile DJ and for his ongoing work with scene leaders such as Herve and Dave Taylor (Switch), he's been at the forefront of the new house sound that now dominates clubland and will be sure to bring the latest underground bass as an extra special treat for the Raw Beats crowd.
Helping out Mr Loveys in the Main Room are fellow headliners the Young Fathers, Flore and Hexadecimal. Young Fathers are a a fun loving trio from Scotland who trade in a electro-pop influenced brand of rap. They'll be playing live and are guaranteed to put an awesome show.
Meanwhile Flore, who hails from the sunny Lyon in France, is in town to promote her upcoming album 'Raw' which is due for release later in the year. An album brimming with bass music in all it's forms you'd be a fool to miss it or her special show at Raw Beats. She'll be DJing with special on stage support from superstar MC Rodney P.
Hexadecimal is a mainstay of the Nottingham based Spectrum brand, a regular DJ at their parties and producer on their label. He's is also promoting his new album with Raw Beats a special chance to display his talent as a DJ and a producer. His album, 'Base 16', is out Distinctive Records soon.
Whilst helping out the big guns in Main Room and packing out Room 2 will be a gaggle of frankly awesome DJs - James Furness, Shakes, Squeaks, Olivier Garth and Bump. Each one a reason to head to Raw Beats on their own.
