‘Hold tight man like Darkzy, yeah?’ If you’re involved in the bassline scene in any sort of capacity, chances are you’ll have heard this at some point in the dance at your local rave. Chances are this ‘tag’ will have preceded an unspeakably ignorant drop that blurs the line between music and electronic tantrum. This is Elliot Fisher’s speciality, fast-rising DJ/producer hailing from Nottingham who finds himself topping the bill on this bassline takeover of the Rainbow’s Roof Garden. If you’re eager to explore the new school of bassline peddling brash, abrasive sounds, this is your opportunity. Fisher is joined by likeminded selectors Ussy and DJ Chef, while 02.31 boss Tom Shorterz leads a vinyl-only party down in the Secret Garden alongside Rothstein, Lopaski and more.
