4 Years of Cable: Butterz - Swindle 'Long Live The Jazz' Launch
Room 2 hosted by Licked Beatz: Uncle Dugs, Mooney, Wen, Rattus Rattus, Offkey, Benny Digital
Ever since Cable first opened it’s doors in 2009, we’ve been welcoming aboard some of most forward-thinking promoters in the country, opening our doors to the best in electronic music, supporting the labels we love.
Butterz first came to us at the peak of August 2011, as a label that were quickly establishing grime as a key in the electronic minefield, empowering artists through their blog, and building a reputation for supporting some of the best emerging producers. Back in Feb they celebrated three years, and in June, they take the reigns in the first in three specially curated events to help celebrate 4 Years Of Cable.
Of course, this couldn’t be any standard line-up affair, so gazing out, we’ve got a drum and bass legend, a world exclusive, a massive back to back session between some of the biggest pioneers in new-wave grime, and a world renowned MC – all fronted by one of the most pioneering labels in the game.
On 14th June, Swindle launches his new record, ‘Long Live The Jazz’, at Cable with his first ever live show, in a special world exclusive. Label head, Elijah, says - "Swindle is going all out for this show, and has been working on it for months so it will be very special. Featuring a bunch of new tracks, and the tracks that have become classics at our nights at Cable over the past 18 months. It will be a full live band: brass, keys, drums, strings and of course Swindle on the keys, -plus more!"
‘Long Live The Jazz’ will be Swindle’s fifth release with Butterz, the label he now part owns alongside Elijah, Skilliam and the rest of the gang. Be prepared to see the very first, of what we expect to be, a very rare live show from the young producer.
The former Mercury Prize winner, and Bristol drum and bass legend, Roni Size, will also join proceedings for the evening, as he makes a rare appearance, straight out the studio from recording his first record in three years. Expect new material, and fierce energy, as things go off for his set.
Deep Medi Music get in on affairs, as two of their finest producers, Silkie and Quest, hit the decks in a collaboration that gives the evening a taste of the best in soulful dubstep. And as if that didn’t already make up a line-up to be proud of, Elijah & Skilliam collaborate with renowned MC legend, Skibadee, so get ready for a heavy set of drum and bass vibes. Butterz resident, Terror Danjah joins the crew, and Von D, and Rinse FM mainstay, Josey Rebelle keep things tasty in Room 1.
Licked Beatz host Room 2, with a line-up just as fierce as any of their solo nights that quickly became renowned at the dawning of Cable. With Rinse FM’s, only Old Skool DJ, Uncle Dugs taking the helm, get ready for 20+ years of pirate radio experience to hit you in the face, alongside a line-up of the best of Licked Beatz regulars.
Dust down that oyster card, head South this June.
