THE BIG CHILL PRESENTS a monthly flagship event at THE BIG CHILL HOUSE in KINGS CROSS, LDN focused on bringing you some of the biggest and most exciting names in music. This month we are hitting spring so thought after a long hard winter we would give you something totally TROPICAL!
Taking the lead role we have RADIOCLIT; the British DJ/production duo, Johan Karlberg and Etienne Tron, who call their brand of African beat-driven house â€˜ghettopopâ€™. They began in 2005 with their residency at the Old Blue Last. Whether it was DAVID BANNER slamming through the crowd, SINDEN or DIPLO blowing up the spot, they were alerting London to some of the heaviest talent to emerge for a long time. Together with SWITCH, M.I.A, BURAKA SOM SISTEMA, BONDE DO ROLE, ED BANGER and INSTITUBES, thereâ€™s now a fervently innovative worldwide scene with arms linked, with Radioclit playing an essential part of that chain. RADIOCLIT further cemented their name within the afro-beat â€˜ghettopopâ€™ sound collaborating with acclaimed African vocalist ESAU MWAMWAYA on THE VERY BEST we are incredibly excited to welcome this duo to the BIG CHILL PRESENTS!
DOC DANEEKA is second on the bill. A fast-rising star, The DOC has just had his latest single DRUMS IN THE DEEP featured on FABRICâ€™S ELEVATOR MUSIC VOL 1 earmarking him for very big things. Add to this killer remixes of DELPHIC and DIGITAL MYSTIKZ and the fact his remix edit of GATTO VIOLA made GILLES PETERSONâ€™s 2009 winners list, weâ€™re very proud to be getting this man down!
Supporting we have three of Londonâ€™s most exciting new talents, first up 23-year-old Londoner GREENA is the new master of genre busting! Putting another spin on house he sails through vintage techno, ghettotech, upfront house, and even some grime-flavored R&B. Next up South Londoner Philip aka GIRL UNIT creates perfect Tropical house, there for he is the perfect pea for this pod. He has been taken under the wing of the NIGHT SLUGS label so expect to hear a lot more from this man soon! Rounding up the line up we have OLIVER RANT formerly one half of the duo Crystal Death Oliver has gone solo with an old school rave slant on everything from electro house and tech step.
