4/10, London. ‘The Heist’ with DJ Hype – an interactive party

DJ HYPE & SLAMBOREE SOUNDSYSTEM

• DJ hype & slamboree soundsystem
• 6+ hours of drum & bass, jungle & mash-up
• A series of 5 hidden chambers within the venue containing weird and wonderful characters
• Hidden chambers feature a thumping soundtrack & cast of 8 actors + puzzle-like scenarios for you to conquer – think London dungeons meets surreal nightclub!
• The experience includes a briefing with London’s most notorious gang boss, a bank vault raid & if you’re unlucky (or outsmarted) a run in with the justice system
• Noir set design + costumed dancers
• Intimate 150 capacity venue to ensure quality one-on-one interactions with the characters

ARRIVAL
Upon your arrival at the venue we encourage you to explore, relax & dance. When the time is right, you will be approached by a costumed character. This character will act as your guide, introducing you & your friends to a small crew of other guests whom you will start your adventure with.

ADVENTURE BEGINS
The theatrical climax of the night takes place as your Guide leads you into a hidden series of rooms within the venue. Each room contains characters (or creatures!)
who you’ll have to interact, bargain & party with as you become a part of the story. A soundtrack operated by
a concealed DJ will accompany the experience in some rooms so you can fist pump & boogie your way throughout the mission.

CELEBRATION TIME
The heady blend of suspense & adrenalin gives
way to euphoria as you and friends (old & new) exit the walk-through experience. The time has come to toast the nights successes and continue the party into the early hours of the morning.

THE STORY
Just south of the River Thames lies Colab House nightclub known by London’s underworld as a meeting hub for outlaws and misfits. The venue’s owner referred to as the King of Thieves, values discretion above all else. The King promises a safe haven for the unruly, a place where they can scheme without outside interference.

Newcomers courageous enough to enter have to earn the regulars trust by taking part in a high stakes plot; If successful they can expect a night of unbridled joys and excess. But be warned, failure may result in an encounter with the Metropolitan Police force or far worse – the wrath of the venue’s owner.

Nestled away near London Bridge Station, the club is just a stones throw away from the capital’s banking district, and the legendary Fitzroy’s Private Bank. Established in 1920, Fitzroy’s acts as a depository for London’s super-rich. Rumour has it that Fitzroy’s may also be guarding a priceless treasure, the lost Florentine Diamond.

During the grand opening, the bank’s founder Mr Fitzroy stated that his vault was ‘unbreakable’ and ‘any fools who even dream of stealing from Fitzroy’s must be either drunk, mad or both’. Such a boastful comment was bound to pique the interest of an unsavoury crowd. After all, the characters at King of Thieves club love a challenge as much as they do a party…

Behind The Label: Unbeatable Music

Hey Unbeatable Music – Thanks for chatting with us!

Who are involved with the label?

Adrien (Manager), Odile (Financial manager), Erwann and Ilsen (Strategy advisors), Thibault and Lucile (Graphic design). This is the core of the team but we got a lot of partners around us who got an important relationship with the label. We also got a network of friends, DJs, recording studio, label managers, distributors and vinyl shops who give a lot of advice to help to improve the project.

How and why did this label get started?

How? Just need to put the money in! Also you need to be strategic to get an impact. Why? It’s like a feeling.. Something missing in my life. I searched for a long time what it was and I’m sure I found it now. I needed something to highlight and elevate drum&bass! I needed a name, a logo, a serious and professional project to say: ‘Hey people, have a look!’ Make people dreaming & dancing, that’s my goal!! That makes me fully happy! One of the bigger reason is to produce vinyl and protect the practice of mixing vinyl. Some people ask me why I’m releasing vinyl if the bigger label like RAM Records almost stopped producing vinyl this year.. My answer is simple; if a specie of an animal is disappearing, some people will fight to save this specie, right? I’m probably an utopianist but I want to do the same for vinyl! We can still see some DJs mixing pure jungle on vinyl! Some artists like Alix Perez (1958 Music), Lenzman (The North Quarter), Kasra (Critical), London Electricity (Hospital) are keeping the vinyl right? Life is too short to not fight for what you love… Today I’m the only french dnb label doing this fight for vinyl and I hope I will do it as long as possible.

What’s your background in the dnb scene?

I used to teach music in three different schools in Preston, close to Manchester, for a couple of years. I used to have a web radio channel called Loud on Vmix.fm. My channel was specialised in bass music. I organised a lot of music events in England & France. This label is a logic continuation of all that.

Do you produce music yourself or are you finding music to release?

Firstly I’m a strictly vinyl DJ, I never mix any digital music and I refuse to do it! It’s like refusing to eat meat when you are a vegetarian, it’s just my rule! I don’t tell everyone to do the same but I tell everyone to respect my philosophy! People don’t understand and argue with me sometimes. It’s about the roots of the DJ culture and the massive respect I have for music. I think
music is the best thing in my life and I don’t mind to pay over 10€ to get my record.. The hard drive kill your music over time but your vinyl will be with you all your life. Also, I get upset listening to people saying that ‘DJs are jokers, they do nothing behind their desks’… I just want to tell them: take these vinyls, try to mix it and we can learn together. Secondly, I produce music on Ableton Live! I still miss technics but I got the vibe.. 

Fortunately I got help but I really need to improve it and I know it’s a loooong way. Today you can listen and watch the video of my first tune Quasar. This tune is on the side B of the first release of Unbeatable Music.

Ad Loud – Quasar

I’m finding music too, for example The Caracal Project who is on the side A with the track Skippin’. Behind this kind of cat is Felix, he is very smart, I think he is a prodigy! He is ready to catch the big stage now. His music has been played on Noisia Radio several times and also on BBC Radio One dnb show with Rene Lavice… His tunes has been played by a lot of great artists like Ed Rush and Phace. You can listen to a lot of his tunes on Skank & Bass if you want to..

The Caracal Project – Skippin’

How do you find artists?

I got a profile on www.soonvibes.com Also I like to receive a private Soundcloud link from artists! The idea is to make sure I’m the first listener and the tune is not published in public. This is very important.. I would like to chase the gold tunes but I don’t have a lot of time at the moment unfortunately, the distribution and promotion take a lot of time.. Anyway I prefer the quality and not the quantity so I will take time to find some tunes for the next release. I don’t want a basic label and releasing one EP per month but I’m looking for a nice quality with a large offer like music video & nice gigs.

What has been the hardest part to run a label?

Money and time! If you don’t have money – forget the project and if you don’t have time is the same. It’s very expensive especially for me because I’m making vinyl. To start a label you need to invest all your time to run everything properly. So if you have a full time job in addition you can’t make a label and if you get a part time job forget sport and say good bye to your friends (except music friends of course)… If you have the time and money, then you can run your own label.

What has been the best part?

The best part is the pleasure you got when you watch your first music video or when you touch physically your own vinyl for the first time. ‘It’s Magic’… Also people are grateful about what you are doing for the movement.

How does the future look like for Unbeatable music?

That’s the best question ever! Obviously, an amazing future but I can’t tell you why. I’m working on a secret project which I’m not 100% sure about and it’s important to keep the secret and work on a strategy to give the message in the best moment. I got everything I need to do it.

How would you describe the sound of Unbeatable Music?

All sort of dnb! Old school to new school, darkness to melodic, underground to mainstream!! Drum & Bass broke the codes and mixed all kinds of influences with its rhythm, it’s why I love this music! If I would describe it in two words, I want to say: Open Mind.

What’s next?

Massive distribution for the first EP half September and preparation of the selection of artists for the second EP for this winter. Also I’m working on music video and a big gig for September 2020.
Stay tunes guys!

Any famous last words?

Music is the key of humanity! (I’m too philosophic, I know :D)

It’s that time again: August, Corsica, and Broken20’s annual two-room, multi-genre rinse-out, featuring all your favourite DJs, live acts, a/v abstractionists and soundsystem troublemakers, for whatever you choose to pay ont’ door.

Headlining, and guaranteeing all kru maximum peaktime funtimes, is a man we can’t stop booking: Equinox (‘cus he’s the best DJ in town). He’ll be playing everything but jungle for this one (ha), which means ravey rollers, tekky stompers, hardkore bleepers and, of course, 2-step bubblers, from one-two-oh 2 one-four-five, for those who know and those who don’t give a f*ck. Not to be missed. Joining him at the dex, Synkro – responsible for one of 2019’s standout electronic long-players – trips down from Manchester for an extended session on *that* rig (room 2 innit), dropping ambient, house, techno, garage, nu-school D&B and old-school IDM (and nex-lev mashups thereof), just the way we like it. Era-exploring ex-Colonist CB kicks off, while co-hosts and comrades-in-wax Tengui and Handsfree close out, dropping everything you need in you know what (clue: You Don’t Know).

Over in room 1, the man making perhaps the freshest, freakiest bass music around rn, Sully, returns to Corsica on the back of a bruising Rupture set, with freedom to play as he pleases – which means genres shredded and new a-holes torn, basically (check his last few 12s if you don’t believe). Up on stage, London Modular Alliance will be similarly ruff n’ ready, but also deep, locked and grooving, bringing boxes and wires galore down from their Hackney Wick bunker (and shop) for an all-new, 100% live-and-improvised public address, hot on the heels of Freerotation. Before all that, we’ve got additional live electronix, of the a/v variety, from London’s Bruised Skies and Moon Zero, whose dark, dank Inchindown PA was a highlight of last year’s Misc. room-host, while Glasgow’s finest, TVO and Production Unit, drop tunes (drone, haus, tekno, bass – you know the drill) and generate vibes in inimitable soft-but-tuff, subtle-but-brutal B20 fashion, with added booth-based live manoeuvres from the latter. Misc. DJs get the whole shebang going, on a strictly anything-goes (except requests) tip, so expect all manner of VIP oddities and artkore anthemz to fire you up as yr beers (etc) go down.

We love putting these things on – always alongside the good people of Corsica, in fully DIY fashion, for love not lucre – and trust you dig our steez: no messing Funktion-One raving, abstract electronics and everything in between, from dusk till dawn, for whatever you feel like paying. There’s really no better sitch to bust out those XXXtrafresh dance moves you’ve been preparing for the summer, is there? You know that, and so do we.
