MATT SYNTHIA & BANG THE BOX RESIDENTS
Bang The Box is Lovebox’s occasional and itinerant heavy-duty underground dance party. Having held one-off parties since 2002 in The Ministry, Bagleys, 93 Ft East and other quirky venues around town they’re getting set to Bang The Box once more; this time in the bowels of the T-Bar.
This is the first in a series of an ongoing monthly residency with future appearances scheduled from Groove Armada and a host of the Lovebox weekender DJ guests AND ENTRY IS FREE OF CHARGE
The line-up represents some hot new blood as well as leading exponents in their fields; starting with multi-talented production duo Zombie Disco Squad who take House in a new direction with influences from Baile Funk, African rhythms, Baltimore, Hip-Hop, the so-called fidget sound and making it sound fresh and with no cheesy gimmicks.
Next up Faze Action; pioneers of the new-disco sound since the mid 90’s and still top of their game as demonstrated with their latest album, ‘Stratus Energy’, widely hailed as one of the most exciting records of 2009.
The Techno angle is well covered with Inxec, whose tracks released on Cocoon get hammered by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, and Luciano; meaning he probably needs no further intro….
Pitching the curve balls will be major all round talent, Sony Radio Award winner, and one of London’s most well known faces on the music scene Mr Ross Allen who’s distinguished himself in many fields from DJing to radio presentation, A&R to label management and beyond.
With a similarly eclectic approach to programming come Hot Blood duo Fillary & Butterfield, who having co-founded Lovebox in 2002 have regularly been playing as the Lovebox All-Stars, flying the flag for the festival’s underground dance roots.
Finishing up the line-up in fine style with his groove laden energetic mix of techno and house is Jaded resident Mouj, alongside the upcoming Matt Synthia who represents the next generation of DJs familiar with their history and comfortable with crossing genres to devastating dance-floor effect.
Whatever religious or musical persuasion we’ll be jacking for Jesus at this free party on Easter Day.
