The Make Noise Electronic Recycling Tour arrives in Edinburgh with special guest headliners The 2 Bears!
Having previously held parties in Newcastle, Brighton, Belfast, Bangor, Nottingham, Leeds, Glasgow, London, Cardiff and Bristol and hot off the heels of their very first Make Noise festival tent at On-Blackheath, Make Noise returns to Scotland for two more dates this autumn.
The Make Noise manifesto remains the same: programming cutting edge electronic music events in some of the country’s best clubs and making entry 100% FREE in exchange for a piece of electrical recycling. Club-goers just need to bring something to hand over at the door: a broken mobile phone, hairdryer or laptop – anything with a plug or a battery!
Since it began, Make Noise has packed out clubs and recycled tonnes of electronic waste.
Make Noise heads to The Reading Rooms in Dundee on Wednesday 30th September 2015, and The Bongo Club in Edinburgh on Thursday 1st October 2015.
Both dates will see headliners The 2 Bears and Heavenly Jukebox DJs take to the stage, with Edinburgh support provided by Hullabaloo residents Trendy Wendy & Steve Austin.
Formed in 2009, Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and Raphael (Raf Daddy) Rundell have bounced
from Brixton to Tel Aviv to Cape Town sharing decks, delivering a blend of house, techno, ragga and more. Their two LP’s (Be Strong and The Night Is Young) have quickly become dance albums of a generation and their DJ appearances are nothing short of spectacular. Expect to be led down multiple musical rabbit holes throughout their very special DJ sets.
Make Noise started in 2010, a unique partnership between European Recycling Platform (ERP) and Heavenly Recordings, the project has toured the country promoting the importance of recycling WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) to 18-25 year olds with help from the UK’s top DJs and producers. Bestival founder Rob Da Bank played the very first party alongside Jackmaster in London and since then Radio One’s Benji B, Boddika, JETS, SecondCity, Citizen, Martelo, Greenmoney, Kidnap Kid and DJ Die have all performed at Make Noise events up and down the UK.
ERP is one of the UK’s leading e-waste, batteries and packaging recycling schemes. Producers of electronic goods and batteries work with registered recycling schemes, such as ERP, to collect and treat WEEE and waste batteries on their behalf. ERP members include Electrolux, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Samsung and Sony.
Heavenly Recordings have been putting out records since 1991 and are celebrating their 25th year as a label in 2015. Heavenly has worked with the Manic Street Preachers, Saint Etienne, Temples, Doves, The Magic Numbers, TOY, Stealing Sheep and many more as well as being involved in the London night life institution, The Social.
