NTIA, how are you doing? It’s been a wee while. London Promoters’ Society here, back for another splurge…today we have a follow on from our article on June 1st; which introduced you to 5 innovative promoters.
Today, we’d like to use this space to introduce you to another 5 amazing crews/spaces from London…this time zooming in on some of those who have found a way to continue to operate during current affairs, sharing much needed musical inspiration – whether that be with one amazing party or a string of socially distanced shenanigans!
The Cause in Haringey has been a hotspot for such table-seated events and so we’ve zoomed in on some of their finest collaborators for this one…
1. More Cowbell
The finest new bass music, plenty of percussive pleasure! More Cowbell was making waves before lockdown hit and nothing’s changed throughout, with a debut label release and a heap of top-notch radio shows. This culminated in a special event last weekend.
Meraki are a special open-minded group of teachers and curators, hailing from South London. We first heard about them through their open decks session which were giving fantastic opportunities to up & coming DJs. They’ve since been popping up all over the shop and their events in previous months have been socially distanced yet swelteringly good. Filled with everything from delightful disco to rave-inspired euphoria.
As well as hosting a dynamic daily roster of musical and discursive shows, Threads have also organised a couple of killer events up in Tottenham. The first celebrated their studio reopening after lockdown and the second, last weekend, was part of their Black History Month programme, raising funds for The Black Curriculum
4. Rebel Music
Fancy some Drum and Bass? Fancy it competitive? Fancy it on a Monday night? Well many have throughout previous weeks! Make sure to also check out their Dub Wars producer battles, in collaboration with Native Instruments.
5. The Cause
The Cause, based in Tottenham Hale, have not only been a venue hosting the events we’ve highlighted above but have also been putting together many great line-ups themselves, curating in-house. Staying safe whilst offering an incredibly important space for people to express themselves. Different spaces of various sizes, new sub-venues built in response to the virus on a shoestring budget and energy to match in everything they do!
Thanks all, hope you can attend some of these crew’s events in the future! Please feel free to fire us information on any promoters or venues that are exciting you, to firstname.lastname@example.org
