See. Hear. Read.

Welcome to our Broadcast section. Think of this area as a rolling stream of consciousness, a flow of aural and visual information beamed direct from the Cable office.
When Ed Rush and Optical launched their own pursuit to change the course of dance music back in 1998, I don’t think even they could have forseen the growth Virus Recordings has had over the past 15 years. Coming from early beginnings, the label has in it’s time released the likes of Fiece, Matrix, Bad Company and Cause 4 Concern. Home to the sound of British techstep and neurounk, Virus is on a constant mission to inspire the next wave of sub genres.

So of course, when they decided to throw their 15th Birthday Bash at Cable, they had to bring together the biggest of talent – from across the board.

After recruiting Black Sun Empire to back up Optical and Ed Rush’s special B2B set, Matrix, The Upbeats and Audio also joined the mix. While a special collaborative appearance between Optiv and BTK sits right in the middle.

It’s going to be a scorcher, witness 15 years of history with the people who first started it.

We Fear Silence present 15 years of Virus with Ed Rush, Optical and Matrix
