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.
It’s been a little while since we last heard from our boy Albzzy, a producer who seems to constantly grow and evolve with the times, commanding a very strong social media presence and having the tracks to back it every step of the way. In the last year we have seen him leap across the pond on tour, but now he is back doing what he does best, and that is creating bangers for us all to enjoy.
We are loving watching the UK bass scene’s expansion, seeing a wealth of new artists blossom and new project flourish. One label we have seen putting together some fantastically consistent material is none other than the Low End. We have been keeping a pretty close eye on the Birmingham based imprint in recent times, seeing them smash together eight fantastic initial releases, showcasing the best of bass music within the UK scene and beyond.
Well well, as we continue our delving into 140BPM based music, we have had the absolute pleasure of stumbling upon this latest project from Gemmy, a producer who is held in seriously high regard within both the dubstep and grime communities, primarily for his fantastic work showcasing the “Purple” sound.
