Chew the Fat!
Friday 30th March 2012 @ XOYO
Chew The Fat! Continues in the Spring with its second date at East London club XoYo, assembling another fervent ensemble of bass music and house for a future facing smorgasbord of beats. Now in its fifteenth year of activity, the Fat club has been at the forefront of the dirtier aesthetic of dance music throughout its tenure, gifting London a more rugged antidote to the mainstream.
Headlining the showcase will none other than sibling dream team Disclosure, the duo whose heartfelt and soulful garage influenced sound has drawn heady comparisons to the likes of Burial and Mj Cole. Releasing on Moshi Moshi, the gutter soul that underpins everything they do has earned them love from sources as far ranging as Gilles Peterson and the NME, not bad for two lads yet to make it out of their teens.
Support comes in the shape of multi-genre lynchpin Deadboy, whose future music rummages have tapped into the musical tapestry of London’s past two decades, restoring the values and principles of early hardcore and classic UK garage and adding flashes of Detroit techno. His dexterity has also seen him Dj R&B on the pun-laden pseudonym of DJ Tearjerker as well as being 50% of Hyper Black Bass, ripping through dancehall with a gameboy and flurry of analogue computer sounds.
The rest of the bill consists of a very distinct air of the north west of England, with Mancunian electronica exponent Synkro, a man who constructs intricate music with an elegant execution, the first of the Pennine focused triumvirate. Two of the Fat agency’s own starlets, Lancastrian teenage bass whippersnappers Bondax and spacey garage sensation Pale (who’s ‘Fille’ is released on Fat on March 5th) round up the room, whilst fellow XOYO beat destropyers Church man proceedings in the backroom.
