B.Traits, Gorgon City, Roses Gabor and more join the Speakerbox warehouse party
With two weeks to go until Speakerbox’s first party of the year at Great Suffolk Street warehouse in London, they have announced BBC Radio 1 DJ B. Traits will headline room 2.
The BBC Radio 1 DJ and first lady of Digital Soundboy will be joined by Speakerbox head honcho MistaJam, fresh from his set in the main room, who will return to the decks on the same night to play an exclusive house set.
The polished, powerful and party-minded Gorgon City, comprised of Foamo & RackNRuin, have been confirmed to play as well as emerging artist Roses Gabor.
Kry Wolf will also play and with their productions ranging from house, garage, tech and funky, they’ve drawn admirers from some of the most prominent people in bass music, including Zinc, Mary Anne Hobbs, A-Trak and Sub Focus.
The duo of SecondCity powered into 2013 in style with a series of free downloads, such as You Feel and A1 and will showcase their house driven bass vibes in the second room.
Rounding up room 2 on the night will be sets from Speakerbox residents Majestic and Bitr8.
Majestic has been at his busiest in the studio over the last few months. Towards the end of 2012, he released his free Let’s Go Back EP on Speakerbox and will also feature on Laidback Luke’s next single, Pogo. He’ll also be releasing a new EP with a classic acid house edge on Speakerbox in the coming months. While he’s a producer, songwriter, MC & multi instrumentalist, he’s also a brilliant DJ and it will be a DJ set party-goers will get from Maj in room 2 for the label’s first party of 2013.
Bitr8 has been the face behind the Speakerbox radio show on Ministry of Sound Radio since it started and every week he takes fans on a one-hour journey into the bass bins of what Speakerbox is about.
Expect his DJ set on the night to be a representation of his radio show and what Speakerbox is about as a brand.
The second room announcement follows the main room line-up revealed in December that will see Chase & Status (with Rage) headline with sets from Pendulum (with Verse), MistaJam, KillSonik, DECiBEL and DJ Cable play at the warehouse party.
Speakerbox are starting 2013 with a statement of intent: taking it back to basics, in a raw industrial space, making it all about the music and bringing the bass in style this February.
