Groove Controllers! Lovebox Crew! Ishh just got REAL
We’ve teamed up with Lovebox to bring you the naughtiest, weightiest and silliest of After Dark sessions. Just a stone’s throw from the festival site, Oval Space is turning into GCHQ for the night - and boi it’s gonna be a treat.
Heading up the bill we got a bit of ROYALTY, and not just bass music royalty but also pretty much actual royalty - WE’RE ALL GOING TO BE IN A ROOM WITH GOLDIE MBE. It’s pretty much impossible to overstate the man’s influence - without him all this would just be fields we reckon. The man, the myth, the DNB pioneer, cultural icon, legend - and really, really damn good DJ.
Touch of the old skool there, lick of the nu skool here - next up it’s the garage-grime crossover production ninja Preditah. Simply one of the best in the game behind any kinda controls - he does orchestral, he does melodic - but always with a right slap in the chops, just how we like it. Meanwhile we’ve had a sneaky eyes on master of the dark arts CASisDEAD for timee, and thought this the perfect opportunity to bear witness to the masked man in the flesh. Expect uniquely bleak-but-humorous bars over some of the ‘ardest riddims about.
Also joining us on this most bumpa of bills is long time GC favourites and garage heroes Luck & Neat. All you regular Groove Controllers know the score, timeless anthems and beautiful chaos on the dancefloor - errtime! Last but by no means least we got a dangerous selector in the shape of Siobhan Bell joining us in E2 - If she’s not on your radar, well, you might wanna get it looked at. Making waves since 2010 she’s been playing alongside and collaborating with the likes of A$AP Mob, Skepta and Novelist to name a few. Not to mention the fact we’ve somehow managed to find someone more stylish than Goldie...
