TRMNL: Maceo Plex | Sat 26 Aug | LAB11 | from £22.25
The summer might be almost over but boundary-pushing dance brand TRMNL are keeping the vibes high with this twelve-hour underground showcase, featuring an extended set from none other than Maceo Plex. Famed for his dark, deep and diverse house and techno productions, the Ellum label boss will be taking clubbers on a journey through three hours of atmospheric, moody music. Notorious crate-digger Rossko is second-in-command with a four-hour set, with selection duties elsewhere being filled by Maxxi Soundsystem, Lauren Lo Sung and more. See our feature here.

DNB Collective: Time is Now | Fri 25 Aug | Amusement 13 | from £16.75
Junglist massive, this one’s for you. Breakbeats and booming basslines abound as some of the scene’s hottest selectors speed through a host of incendiary jump up anthems sure to set Amusement 13 alight. The night’s esteemed guests include DJ Guv, Skudkid and even prolific SaSaSaS producer Macky Gee, so rest assured you’re in safe hands. As is custom in d’n’b, they’ll be accompanied by a legion of emcees spitting rapid-fire over rolling drops and diving subs, doing their bit to work the place up into a frenzy.

Mr Scruff | Fri 25 Aug | Hare & Hounds | from £11.00
Andy Carthy, aka Mr Scruff, is a man of many talents: maker of speciality tea, graphic designer (famed for his wobbly scribblings of potato people), and DJ. A pretty quirky mix of interests, we think you’ll agree. And this quirkiness apparently translates into some mad skills on the decks, leading to the creation of four critically revered albums, half a million record sales worldwide and innumerable sold-out tours across the globe. Expect disco, funk, house, jazz, soul – all in Mr Scruff’s signature style.

RAW: Bassline Safari | Fri 25 Aug | Rainbow | from £22.00
Turn back the clock to jungle, garage and bass classics of yesteryear at this rooftop rave up on the Rainbow Venues’ newly refurbished roof terrace. Electronic music moves fast, and it seems like only yesterday that bassline first rose to prominence, but a decade on the sound has diversified and morphed into a new beast entirely. Micky Finn, Midland Breakz and Kevlar are just a few of the DJs on show here, with emcees Vapour, Busta and more at hand to stoke the flames of this fiery bass-centric spectacle.
