Since our last event, we have released our debut project “AFROCENTRIC” by DJ NAUGHTY which is doing damage in the clubs and has had great support from some of the major players in the Bass world.

November saw the release of TRUCE’S “HOUSE IN LONDON E.P”. A massive 5 tracker supported by the Undergound House scene which features the club monster ‘IMPURE SOUL”

There’s great things in store for 2013! We will have at least one release per month starting from February and each event will be focused on the release and the producer behind it. On Thursday 10th January we will be showcasing unreleased and forthcoming material from our in house producers so don’t miss out.

Unexpected Pleasures: The Art and Design of Contemporary Jewellery @ Design Museum / until 3rd March 2013


Doors: 10:00 – 17:45

@ Design Museum, 28 Butlers Wharf, Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD

Entry: £12 book online

The Design Museum’s exhibition celebrates the work of contemporary jewellers who have challenged the conventions of jewellery design. The show examines what we value and regard as precious, bypassing traditional perceptions in favour of the radical experiments of jewellers from the 1970s onwards who, making use of new processes, questioned the relevance of precious materials and shifted the role of preciousness from financial value to personal association. Themes include ‘Worn Out’, which celebrates the experience of wearing jewellery, and ‘Linking Links’, which looks at the ways in which meaning and narratives are expressed in jewellery. Exhibitors include Wendy Ramshaw, who is known for her complex geometric designs, and Hans Stofer, who trained in precision engineering and produces intricate wire form jewellery.

Twelfth Night @ Bankside Riverwalk / Sunday 6th January 2013


From: 14:45

@ Bankside Riverwalk, London SE1 9DT


The Lions Part theatre mix ancient traditions with contemporary celebrations for the New Year in the nineteenth Twelfth Night celebration. Pagan icons the Green Man and the Holly Man from the Thames make an appearance, to ‘bring in the green’ and ‘wassail’ or toast the people, the river and the Globe. The Bankside Mummers then process to Bankside Jetty to perform the Folk Combat Play of St George, a seasonal event recorded from the Crusades, which features wild verse and action, and characters such as the Turkey Sniper, Clever Legs and the Old ‘Oss. Two of the cakes distributed at the end of the play have a bean and a pea hidden inside – those who find them are crowned King and Queen for the day, and lead the people to the historic George Inn in Borough High Street where the Kissing Wishing Tree, storytelling and revelling await all.

George Eksts: Incredible Utility @ Hayward Gallery / until 10th February 2013


Open: 10:00 – 18:00

@ Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX

Free entry

In ‘Incredible Utility’, George Eksts presents a selection of visual conundrums from his ongoing series of ‘endless’ videos.

A branch balances and spins on its own axis, a team of scaffolders are locked in an absurd cycle of perpetual play, and two signs rattle against each other in confrontation, poised to fall at any moment.

While some of the events documented are staged or choreographed, others are actual scenarios from real life that have been manipulated, edited, collaged and looped in post-production.

Eksts’ time is not linear but crumpled and meandering, collapsed in on itself. Sequential events appear simultaneous, videos slip in and out of sync with each other, and narrative progress is subverted.

In confounding our desire to impose a beginning and an end, Eksts invites us to engage in a process of attentive looking that brings out delicate nuances we might otherwise miss.

Mike Skinner and Mele @ The Nest / Friday 4th January 2013


Doors: 21:00 – 04:00

@ The Nest, 36 – 44 Stoke Newington Road, London N16 7XJ

Entry £7 book online

The urban banterings of The Streets may be officially over, but that hasn’t stopped Mike Skinner embarking on a newly focused DJ career, which he seems to be doing pretty well in, by all accounts. Upfront house and soulful garage will likely be the mainstays of Skinner’s set, and further dancefloor vibes come from of hotly tipped Liverpudlian producer Melé, whose bassline house party preferences will surely go down a treat with The Nest crowd.
