$25 cash at the door

Two of the UK’s dubstep pioneers and most aggressive innovators now are pushing the sound of dub and bass beyond genre definition. Find out what that means when they meet the one and only Francois K at his world famous dub inspired Deep Space party. Kode9 founded the Hyperdub label, home to one of the first chart topping dubstep artists, Burial, as well as the Brainfeeder label with LA’s Flying Lotus. Appleblim’s Skull Disco releases were a cornerstone of early dubstep, characteristic of the wide range of creativity the genre was known for in its early years.

Deep Space is an adventure into future dub, spacey vibes, and abstract grooves featuring resident dj François K. live on the mixingboard.

Kode9 BIO:

Kode9 vibrates parts other DJs can only dream of. His DJ sets and radio shows helped spread the early dubstep sound internationally, but his sets now weave together an unpredictable, bass heavy mix of house, garage, dubstep, grime, footwork, hip hop, r&b and techno.

Originally from Glasgow, but based in South London since 2000, Kode9 set up the record label Hyperdub in 2004, infamous for unleashing artists such as Burial (and countless others) on the world. He has recorded 2 albums of his own with vocalist Spaceape; Memories of Future (2006) and Black Sun (2010) and released 2 DJ mix compilation, Dubstep Allstars vol.3 (Tempa 2006) and DJ Kicks (K7 2011). Kode9 has also released tracks on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex label, and remixed for Lee Scratch Perry for On U Sound, the Junior Boys for Domino, Battles for Warp, and Dabrye Feat. Doom for Ghostly.

For 5years, he hosted the weekly Fwd>> show on Rinse FM, London’s leading pirate radio station, and was one of the rotating DJs at DMZ, and Fwd>>, the seminal early dubstep nights in London. He now co-hosts the Hyperdub monthly show on Rinse FM with Scratcha DVA.

Kode9 has performed at Sonar Festival, Sonar Tokyo, Mutek, Glastonbury, Unsound, Melt and Coachella as well are gracing clubs nights across Europe, Asia, North and South America, Australia & New Zealand and South Africa with his unique selection skills.
Appleblim came to light running and releasing on the now defunct Skull Disco with Shackleton. Having been regulars at FWD>> from late 2002, then the only place you could hear dubstep, they were inspired by the likes of Digital Mystikz, Youngsta, D1 & Skream, to set up Skull Disco to release their own efforts at production. After the success of their vinyl only singles, the label went on to achieve more success with their popular CD compilations Soundboy Punishments 1 & 2.

With more and more DJs opening up to their sound after Ricardo Villalobos famously opening his sets with pitched-down Shackleton tracks, the label went from strength to strength when they released Vilalobos’s epic 18 minute remix of ‘Blood On My Hands’ , which many saw as a meeting of the dubstep and techno worlds (although Appleblim & Shackleton would just say was a good tune!).

In the meantime, Appleblim was asked by FWD>> boss Sarah to do some warm up sets at the influential dubstep and future music club. After seeing how his sets went down there she asked him to mix the 6th installment of Tempa’s genre-defining mix series Dubstep Allstars. The mix garnered rave reviews in the dance music press, featuring in many Top 10s of the year, and even appearing in Resident Advisors forthcoming Top 20 mixes of the decade.
When he and Shackleton decided to fold Skull Disco on a high, Appleblim went about setting up Apple Pips – an outlet for some of the amazing music that he was getting passed and playing round the world.. The label debuted with Martyn’s ‘Suburbia’ and has since released genre shattering tracks by Brackles, Instra:mental, Ramadanman, Al Tourettes, Greena, Jus Wan & Brendon Moeller.

Concentrating mainly on collaborations with Ramadanman, Geiom, Komonazmuk & Al Tourettes, Appleblim has gained a name for truly interesting and challenging remixes of Brendon Moeller, The Black Ghosts, and Planetary Assault Systems for reknowned labels such as Wave Music, Southern Fried, & Ostgut Ton. Apple Pips continues to release quality electronic dance music of all genres, with a concentration on more upcoming Bristol based talent as well as tracks from talented producers round the world.
