(live London debut)
On 31st October two of London’s most fiendish bass party crews Hyponik and Greco-Roman soundclash to bring the underground out into the open for one night… and that night is Hallowe’en! No stranger to bass-obsessed zombies, these two collectives have been unleashing scary amounts of low-end on unsuspecting mortals over the last 3 years. This time they take no prisoners.
Who better to summon the undead for Greco-Roman than their very own lord of the swamp rave Drums of Death - the good Catholic Scotsman consumed by a voodoo curse and now destined to a life of destroying soundsystems and ravaging disco virgins - bringing his full live band to London for the first time. And Rob Da Bank knows a thing or two about zombies too, broadcasting his cult early-hours radio show to thousands of them and hosting Britain’s most notorious all-night festival Bestival. They come aided by Untold who has emerged from the dark depths of the underground over the last 6 months with his forward-thinking fusion of UK funky and dubstep, all accompanied by the infamous Greco-Roman Soundsystem.
But the good Hyponik fight back the Undead! Led by the world’s most fearless Dubstep footsoldier Rusko, backed in turn by the mighty Dub army that is Iration Steppas, whose monstrously heavy soundsystem has left many in their hometown of Leeds reeling, maimed for life, or sometimes just plain dead. Debruit fends off the demons early on with his live wonktronica while cult vinyl collector Jonny Trunk also sets the tone down in the vault with his weird collection of haunting spook-jazz. Hyponik DJs round off the proceedings with their selection of death-defying terror bass.
Playing host to this terrifying battle of the bass is the newly refurbished Plan B whose 24 hour license means the crews pledge to play until the last body drops, with the Graveyard Shift in the basement for all those too scared to ascend into daylight.
Be very, very afraid.
