SATURDAY 22 JULY

RICHMIX, LONDON

Logic will be bring­ing his unique and power­ful live show to Rich Mix to head­line this event. A lead­ing pion­eer in con­scious UK hip-hop, Logic’s music com­bines power­ful social com­ment­ary with anthem­ic hooks and razor-sharp beats for a breath tak­ing live exper­i­ence.

Logic will be joined by fel­low Lon­don rap­per Awa­te. An artist, act­iv­ist and refugee, Awate’s music tackles sub­jects like iden­tity, his­tory, racism and pride over for­ward think­ing, jazz-inspired beats.

Our live per­formers will also be joined by some rising stars in spoken word and some awe­some DJs!

The Resis’Dance DJ col­lect­ive are a diverse group of women who came togeth­er to rock the dance­floor whil­st chal­len­ging gender norms in the party and polit­ic­al scene. They will bring a blend of fresh beats and dance clas­sics, span­ning from soca and afrobeats through to house and gar­age

DJs Jon More & Matt Black — founders of the icon­ic Ninja Tune Record label – will close the night with their eclectic mash-up of hip-hop, breaks, elec­tro and jazz for a very spe­cial video DJ set.

Dance To Dis­arm is part of a week­end of per­form­ance, work­shops, speak­ers and dis­cus­sions organ­ised by Cam­paign Again­st Arms Trade and the Stop The Arms Fair.
