Having already hosted three of their sold-out eponymous ‘Presents…’ nights in the heart of London, Audio Doughnuts present the fourth � and penultimate � ‘Presents…’ of 2011. As the fast-expanding imprint leads up to their first anniversary on November 25th, this particular event celevrates the release of Audio Doughnuts’ first single from The Fives, ‘What You Do / Hottest By Far’ – available worldwide shortly after the show.
In true Audio Doughnuts style, the night boasts a line-up spanning not only the twisted genome of UK bass music but the fresh, eclectic sounds bursting out of Europe and the US.
Headliners include Tectonic founder and all-round curator of cutting edge bass music, Pinch. The Bristollian will be bringing a typically weighty, inspiringly genre-straddling set to the proceedings. Loefah’s infamous imprint Swamp81 will also be in attendance, represented by their very own Boddika, whose Joy Orbison collaboration ‘Swims’ is presently troubling dancefloors worldwide. House & Funky specialist French Fries – his sound acclaimed as “uncompromising and barking mad � will be representing our friends from across the channel. Thickening the already hefty throng on the bill will be Hyperdub signing and scene favourite Funkystepz, whose refreshing take on the UK funky scene takes strains of playful club music and roughens the edges for the dancefloor.
Alongside this tasteful variety of bass music pioneers, Audio Doughnuts will be presenting some of the homegrown talents that the imprint can call it’s own. Needless to say AD’s most recent signing – The Fives – will be present, bringing their jaw-dropping live set to the main room. San Fransisco’s lady of leisure & beatsmith Kozee, bloggers favourites Korus & Artek, previous highlight Widowmaker, the crowd-pleasing Green Money’s recent co-signings Mista Men and Teeza (the latter also signed with Logan Sama’s 696 imprint) will be keeping the quality high and the adrenaline pumping.
The night, hosted at South East London’s art & music epicentre Corsica Studios, will be decked out with a rib-shaking Funktion-On soundystem and an enrapturing light show across the intimacy of it’s two rooms. With completely FREE entry for the first 100 guests, and a wallet-friendly door charge of �5 after that before 12am – as with any Audio Doughnuts night – early arrival is a must.
Come and celebrate the penultimate ‘Presents…’ night of 2011, see just what a mark the AD family are leaving on the UK bass music scene and take in the majesty of the first release available from Audio Doughnuts, a burgeoning imprint, and a night inimitably eclectic, unfalteringly exciting and firmly on the pulse.”
