A double dose of the best in reggae, afrobeat, drum and bass, dub and breakbeat hits the seafront. Tearing up the big room is DJ Wrongtom, whose career spans a patchwork of styles, including dancehall, dub, ghetto-tech and free jazz.
Joining him, taking a few hours out from the crazy jamming collective Slamboree, will be leftfield genre-hopper Freear. Combining classic dub elements with a wide variety of dance styles, The Future Dub Project will be bringing their amazing brand of live brass-infused, progressive dub. The main room also hosts forward thinking bass musician Ed West, from south London music collective Unit 137.
There will also be some top reggae DJs spinning tunes in the bar, including The Busy Twist, Boomshakalak Soundsystem, Arrival Sound System and Parisian DJ Tomas James.
Get ready for two booming rooms of quality music, featuring some of the UK’s slickest bass acts. With a late finish, a reasonable door tax and its authentic festival vibe, the very first Soundfangled at Concorde 2 promises to be the perfect summer party!
