Celebrating the best in South London bass culture over the last year, and having hosted some of the most serious sound boys, selectors and MCs — Southbound will be hosting three parties in September to mark its 1st anniversary in style.
On September 22nd Southbound will be taking London dance music back to its roots with a UK Garage vs Bassline head to head. Old school super group UKG All Stars rep the garage corner with So Solid Crew, Wookie and a very special secret guest. In the Bassline corner, new wave heavy-weights Preditah and Notion bring the fire alongside Niche pioneers Jamie Duggan and Bass Boy.
None other than The Streets frontman Mike Skinner completes the bill taking us back to the days of ‘Original Pirate Material’ with its lo-fi production, garage influenced beats and kitchen sink poetry.
Rounding up the events, on 29 September Electric Brixton welcomes the biggest personality in UK rap,Big Narstie. When he’s not giving hilarious advice under his agony aunt alter ego ‘Uncle Pain’, Narstie is busy spitting ingenious bars over gritty productions. Collaborating with the likes of JME and Craig David, he has firmly placing himself at the centre of UK Grime and Garage. Support comes from Kennington UK Rap crew Harlem Spartans and BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Sian Anderson.
