MTA Event Preview


MTA records have built up a solid reputation for holding down some of London’s best intimate label parties; bringing in mammoth lineups to the Nest unannounced on a regular basis. Always looking for progression the label are all set for their biggest lineup yet, set in a stunning location in Hackney with 16 hours of day and night to party. Combining some of the labels heavyweights, with special guests and the freshest up and comers this is one not to be missed. Oh, and did we mention it’s the summer solstice, which means you’ll be able to enjoy the sun for longer than any other day of the year! Plus it’s another first, as the whole MTA roster maybe playing the same show!

Expect a hybrid of sounds ranging from bass driven house to garage, drum n bass, bass and everything that falls in-between the gaps. Never defined by genre you can be sure this ones going to effortlessly give off an eclectic feel, and a no-nonsense party attitude.

What’s been the ethos behind MTA’s label parties at the nests, and what can we expect at the new venture with LWE?
The ethos behind the parties at the Nest is to take things back to what parties used to be like when Chase & Status went to Metalheadz at Blue Note and FWD at Velvet Rooms / Plastic People; where the vibes were always wicked, you never really knew who was playing from week to week and you just turned up and had a good time. To emulate that in this day and age we decided do our events at the Nest – an intimate capacity and unannounced lineups create a similar vibe in those early days. Unannounced lineups also mean we can get big name acts to play without worrying about other show exclusivities.

We have a lot of shared history with LWE through events and working together in the past through different ventures, but this is the first time we’ve come together. The LWE brand run the best and most well promoted events in London, it’s something that we want to be part of.


How is this different from what has been done before?
It’s the first event we’ve done during the day and it’s the first event we’ve ever collaborated with a big promoter. lt’s also the first time the whole MTA roster maybe playing the same show! Going from The Nest to a full on day & night party is completely next level, it’s something we haven’t done before.
