We’re all very excited about the arrival of ‘godfather of grime’ Slimzee at The Bongo Club for the Electrikal Sound System crew this Friday. The hype for this event has been incredible (as you can see from the Facebook event), so if you don’t have a ticket already, you’ll either want to grab one now or make sure you arrive early to avoid disappointment!
DJ Slimzee, co-founder of the massive Rinse FM and member of the legendary Pay As You Go Cartel was born in East London and grew up immersed in pirate radio with the likes of Dizzee Rascal & Wiley.
Fast forward to 2015 and Slimzee is regarded as one of the UK’s true underground heroes, still calmly demolishing clubs around the world with ease. He boasts an unrivaled library of custom grime dub-plates and rare classics. Combined with a perpetual hunger for fresh, forward sounds, there is nobody in the world that can deliver a set like Slimzee.
Joining him on mic duties for the first time in Edinburgh will be the London City warlord, Riko Dan, part of the original Roll Deep crew.
Also making their Edinburgh debut will be the mighty Kahn & Neek, founders of the vinyl only imprint Bandulu and the duo behind Gorgon Sound. Rest assured that they will be bringing a bag full of exclusive vinyl dubplates to literally obliterate the depths of Edinburgh’s Cowgate.
We are also pleased to be bringing some troops from Too Much Hype and Levels Syndicate in Glasgow through to join our very own DJ Era for a massive b2b selection to warm things up.
Taking over Room 2 will be Astral Black tastemaker Jaisu, spinning some of the funkiest 45’s in existence.
