The giant ice rink by day at MK Arena (30 mins from London), is set to be transformed into a huge 16,000 square foot dance-floor with top level production when, for the first time this weekend, it opens its doors to electronic music, with an explosive programme of clubbing events. It all kicks off this Friday 5th April with BassJam presents Andy C where the superstar drum ’n’ bass DJ will headline, fresh off the back of selling out Wembley Arena in an hour, and a 13-week headline residency at XOYO, and will be joined for a massive night by the likes of Dimension, Darkzy, Problem Central, James Hype and FooR.
The launch event on Friday 5th April sees Our Next Event bringing Manchester’s BassJam party and the world-renowned, king of drum ’n’ bass, Andy C, to Milton Keynes. He remains at the top of his career after more than 20 years in the game, as boss of Ram Records and with his legendary residency at London’s XOYO. He is joined by fellow drum ’n’ bass and garage greats, Dimension, Darkzy, Problem Central, James Hype and FooR.
Our Next Events director Oliver Ibrahim said, “We are aiming to develop MK Arena into one of the UK’s best electronic music event spaces. The ice will be covered to create a 16,000 square foot dance-floor and the arena will be transformed with industry-topping production. This is just the beginning of what is set to be an exciting event calendar for Milton Keynes.”
This is thrilling news for fans of large-scale shows as few dance experiences will be more explosive and adventurous than those by Our Next Event at MK Arena. For further event info, line up announcements and ticket details, visit www.facebook.com/miltonkeynesarena.
A topic we have continuously found ourselves discussing here at threethousand.co.uk is the new world expansion of bass music and the new influences it is being able to pick up as it travels and becomes more popular across the globe. We have been loving this rapid expansion and have been seriously enjoying the music that has been coming from it!
One we had been sent this one, we simply could not resist getting involved, as we throw up an exclusive premiere of the title track ‘Eternal’. For us this is without a doubt the stand out track on the release, as we are engulfed in an array of skippy drum procedures and nostalgic, heartwarming vocal chops. This one is definitely one for the dances, and when joined by the other two originals on the project, plays a major role in making this a EP a solid body of work.
As we shuffle towards the end of 2019, we are now starting to see different labels and artists put together their yearly round up pieces and final drops before we move into what is set to be a dazzling 2020. It’s been an amazing year for bass music as a whole, with numerous UK artists being flown out around the world to perform on some of the biggest global stages, as well as some of the strongest releases we have ever seen come out of the UK in general.
