WHERE
The CLF Art Café
WHEN
27th Mar | 23:00-05:00

This March sees us celebrating 6 years of SWITCH as chart a globe-trotting course through a fiery array of club sounds. The artists, with influences ranging from Pakistan, Colombia, Lebanon and South Africa, capture the worldwide scope of club music and the ever increasing importance of scenes outside of Europe and North America. If they are united by one thing, it’s a shared flair for hotting up dancefloors around the world.

RUDEBOYZ

Vital South African gqom duo Rudeboyz top the bill to show why the infectious Durban sound has influenced club music globally. The highly percussive genre, both hard and hypnotic, has surged in popularity across the 2010s, championed by UK luminaries such as Kode9 and Scratcha DVA.

FLORENTINO

Hailing from Manchester and Colombia, Florentino fuses the heft of UK bass music with the syncopated rhythms of reggaeton. He is an influential bridge between these worlds with a close affiliation to Manchester’s Swing Ting crew and multiple production credits for Barcelona’s breakout reggaeton star, Bad Gyal.

MANARA

Manara is renowned for the Bollywood edits that she weaves into garage, grime and UK funky. Party music through and through, her addictive blends are scarily effective at setting off a rave and have become an essential ingredient in the sound of the seminal Night Slugs label.

DJ PLEAD

DJ Plead tracks were ubiquitous in 2019 and are a potent mix of hard drum, UK funky and frenetic Middle Eastern percussion. His productions have graced sets ranging from Kampire and TSVI to blockbuster DJs such as Ben UFO and Four Tet. He’s also a fearsome presence behind the decks with a string of his own show-stopping mixes.

OVERTONE (Tayls, Holloway, Simkin)

We are joined for a second inning by Overtone, the essential South London crew who are fresh off a 4 hour masterclass at RA’s 24 hour party at FOLD. These techno and breaks maestros host floor 2 of Bussey Building.
