Too Hip To Be Square @The CAMP

Too Hip To Be Square @The CAMP

Aside from hosting my bi-monthly party at 93 Feet East, Too Hip To Be Square returns next Friday 8th October to take the reins solo as I host a one off special at The City Arts Music Project (The CAMP).

As well a few close friends celebrating their turning another year older, we'll also be toasting happy birthday to this blog as it turned 3 years old today. For your entertainment we welcome back Jim Sharp along with the usual suspect residents of Alruii, Fade In Fade Out, Pink Eye and myself. The party kicks off at 10pm and goes on until 4am. Its free entry all night.

Too Hip To Be Square vs Deathwish Disco Pt.2

Too Hip To Be Square Vs Deathwish Disco

Well I've just about recovered from Bestival but it won't be long until we do it all again this Friday night as Too Hip To Be Square and Deathwish Disco team up once again in the surrounds of 93 Feet East's dark rooms, court yard and kicking soundsystem. Once again it's free entry and we have a mighty line up boasting the likes of Freestylers, Schema, The Freelance Hellraiser, Heavy Knights, Alruii, Pink Eye and myself. It all kicks off at 7 and goes on until 1am so make sure you get in early to avoid disappointment as it's bound to be a roadblock down there.

Also this will be a very special showcase of the new "3 Decks & EFX" live show the Freestylers are currently performing. To get a little taster check out the recent mix they released on Soundcloud:

We are also very proud to be welcoming The freelance Hellraiser who among other projects will be debuting some new material he's been working on under his Kid Gloves moniker with Freeform Five's Anu Pillai.

Also, Sub Slayers signing Schema will be bringing us their blend of breaks, dubstep and downright dirty noise as they get things going in room two. Check out their recent promo mix here:

This weekend I'm getting my wellies on for Bestival (lets hope it isn't a 2008 pt.2) but, if I wasn't going then I'd be going to the Supatronix Vs Skanks night down at The Rhythm Factory on Saturday 11th September.

From the days of Dex in Brixton, Herbal in Shoreditch, Jamm south of the river to the hot spot of East London, The Rhythm Factory, Skanks and Supatronix have been bouncing off each other for years. With a perfectly mixed, cross genre line up from the crew behind the much loved radio show, Skanks, and a heavy hitting breaks pioneers from Supatronix consisting of Deekline & Wizard, Slyde and Beat Assassins to name but a few, we’re doing it in more style and power on 11th September.

Sets have been tightened and tunes have been mastered in preparation for this special Skankscollaboration. This event will be held close to the Skanks hearts, as it will be the last collaboration event for Skanks for a while. The future hold many developments for Skanks, and we want to make sure that the future is a good one.

Skanks Radio has become more about what we give you guys in terms of new upfront music, pioneering producers, and fresh sounds of all styles. We now feel it’s time to take a step back from the large stages and showcase the more intimate and personal side of the radio; the live lounge sessions, the intimate gigs, the Skanks touches. Skanks is renowned for our cross genre playlists and live performances our Dr Who’s Tardis of a studio, and we’re going to be brining you more and more of this as the year goes on, PLUS more chances to see the acts we’ve have had on the show live in venues across the capital and beyond.
