Hospitality Bank Holiday
One of our special guests at the August Bank Holiday BBQ is Youngsta, a bassweight dubstep pioneer DJ that has been around since the origins of the London based scene in the early noughties. Now still playing out his extensive knowledge of low frequency vibrations, we asked him to pick his top 10 dubstep roots tracks from the past decade of releases.
10. Benga – Crunked Up
9. Coki – Tortured
8. El B – Buck & Bury
7. Mala – Lean Forward
6. Loefah – Mud
5. Menta – Snake Charmer
4. SP:MC & LX One – Hunted
3. Breakage – Higher
2. Skream – Midnight Request Line
1. High Plains Drifter – Sholay
Catch Youngsta amongst plenty other roots, reggae and of course drum’n’bass at the August Bank Holiday BBQ at Studio 338 on Saturday 29th August. Tickets are now on final release, so be quick!
This August bank holiday we’re rolling out another epic Hospitality BBQ, extending the party to a huge 18 hours! Alongside many members of the Hospital family, we’ll be welcoming a few very special guests including DJ Zinc, Uncle Dugs, TC and Channel One Sound System.
The S the U the P the E the R
A man who needs very little introduction, known for the seminal “Super Sharp Shooter” of ’95, Zinc’s been tearing apart dance-floors since the start. Expect a set full of every flavour, if it’s got a beat that’ll get you on your feet then Zinc will select; from hip-hop to old-skool jungle, d+b, breakbeat, garage and house it’ll be blaring from the Studio 338 speakers.
Get set for the BBQ with one of his many mixes (we highly recommend his Data Transmission mix, also available for free download).
It’s everyone’s favourite Uncle, he smashed it at our first Bristol BBQ a couple of weeks back so we’ve brought him down to London for you all to hear a bit of jungle magic at our D+B feast. Uncle Dugs has been hitting the record shops since his first rave in ’91, fair to say he’s racked up quite the collection.
From his shows on UKG, KOOL FM and Rinse Dugs has been behind the exposure of countless artists who have been pivotal in the development of the UK dance scene throughout the past decade. Get ready to be schooled in the sunshine with Dugs’ classics jungle set this August bank holiday.
Yes yes, Mr TC will be joining us on the decks this August! Whether he’s demanding you to “Get Down Low”, “Hitting the Floor” with Wilko, or asking the almighty question, “Do You Rock?”, he kills it every time. He smashes it at every Hospitality with a floor-filling set from start to finish, don’t miss it.
Bringing a different flavour to the BBQ are brothers Mikey Dread and Jah T, world renowned reggae and dub DJs otherwise known as, Channel One Sound System. Starting back in 1979, they’ve been breaking down barriers with the sweet sounds of reggae music ever since, playing in cities and countries across the world for the past two decades. They’ve been hugely successful taking home the trophy of the Red Bull Culture Clash against the likes of Skream and Benga, Metalheadz and Soul Jazz in 2010.
We’re also lucky enough to have the mighty Makoto hitting London ground this August bank holiday! Incoming all the way from Tokyo, Makoto has been representing for electronic music since the late 90’s. Starting off at LTJ Bukem’s Good Lookin’ Records in ’99 and since then building a discography that reaches far and wide, including releases on Hospital, Bingo Beats, Creative Source and Innerground Records. Makoto also featured on Hospital’s “Fast Soul Music” compilation earlier this year and put together a stunning “Fast Soul Music” inspired set for BBC Radio 1 – the perfect warm-up for our BBQ festivities this August.
