ELECTRIKAL RECORDS LABEL LAUNCH: ADDISON GROOVE

23:00 - 03:00

It’s finally time..we are finally launching our sound system & uk bass focused record label and to celebrate the launch of our first EP by Grobbie we have brought the master behind ‘Footcrab’ and UK Bass master Addison Groove to come celebrate!  Addison Groove is, in fact, an alias of Headhunter, a dubstep mainstay who’s released a multitude of singles for Tempa as well as an album for the label, Nomad. He’s been playing Chicago juke in his DJ sets for a while now, and his work as Addison Groove is where that influence is allowed to come to the forefront, with stripped down drum machine beats, acid basslines and hip-hop / booty-leaning vocals.  FACEBOOK
