Urban Nerds celebrate five years of crazy line-ups in London, as we pull out all the stops to hand pick a diverse set of underground UK bass, dubstep, grime and funky acts on one of our broadest cross-sections of talent yet…we’re marking 5 with a return to the deep underground sounds that we kicked off with back in 2007!
Grime veterans Newham Generals – MCs D Double E and Footsie – have gone from strength to strength in recent years. This is an act known for their lyrical aptitude and versatile musical styling that sees them successfully straddling the genres of grime and dubstep with releases such as ‘Generally Speaking’ in 2009. Dynamic and seamless, theirs will be a highlight set!
Gorgon City is the brand new powerful collaboration between Foamo and RackNRuin. These UK bass producers come together in style to produce big sounds – for this highly anticipated new project.
Klashnekoff, who made his name in the underground UK hip hop scene with singles such as ‘Murda’ in 2004, boosts the bass ranks, alongside Rudimental, whose ‘Feel the Love’ is currently Radio 1’s Mistajam’s JAM HOT track of the week. Urban Nerds’ newest resident, Rinse FM’s Marcus Nasty is undoubtedly one of the pioneers of the UK funky movement. He’ll be kicking up the pace with MCs PSG and Sharky P, while fellow Nerds resident Rattus Rattus will deliver one of his smash-out sets hosted by drum ‘n’ bass legend MC, IC3.
Room 2 presents two of the hottest UK grime labels: No Hats No Hoods versus King Pigeon Records. Bringing together the finest from both camps, DJs Warrior One, Rude Kid, Magic, Eastwood, Guerilla Speakerz, Lenkemz, Murlo and a live PA of ‘Beautiful’ by Jae Ella will keep the vibe rude and bouncy. Hyping up the crowd are MCs of the moment, Kozzie, Scrufizzer, Trilla, Chronik, Merky Ace and Roachee.
Two of London’s fastest growing party-starting crews, our mates at Get Low and Redux go head to head in Room 3. with residents Get Low Cartel, Binman, Arch, Sai, Newjack and RankOutsider, selecting across a broad span of genres ranging from jungle and dubstep to bassline!
A couple of the Dirt Cheap team spent the last week working at the Odd Future pop-up store in London – which coincided with the crews UK tour. It was a pretty crazy (tiring!) week working the shop in the day and partying with the band on a night.
Here’s a cool little video on Odd Future’s channel
Much more to come when we have sorted our own media/heads out..
