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.
This week, the label branch of The 3000 Network have announced their plans to launch an exciting new various artists compilation series they are calling ‘Digitalization’ and we are treated to a sneak preview of the very first volume.
At 3000 Bass, we make a major effort to stay current with the music we release and artists we support. Bass music has been heading through a transitional period in the UK, slowly but surely moving away from super loud, whammy leads, to a more subtle, techy approach.
Within the UK bass scene, we sit an a pivotal point between saturation and expansion, as we start to see some of our biggest homegrown starts hit mega stats on the world scale. Perfect examples of this are acts such as Skepsis and Holy Goof heading around America on tour with Jauz, Bushbaby and Taiki Nulight heading up their own tours around Australia and a tonne of other UK artists making major headway around the European festival circuit.
