Run the Riddim: Faze Miyake + YGG | Sat 11 June | Suki10c | From £5
A whole year after Run the Riddum welcomed legendary grime DJ Spooky to Suki10c, the stage is set for a London takeover as producer/DJ Faze Miyake sets the graffiti-adorned venue alight yet again. Whether or not you’ve heard his name before, there’s a good chance you’ll have heard Miyake’s music, with his distinctively dark, grimey instrumentals frequently finding their way onto the legal and pirate airwaves alike. Also representing London are YGG – short for You Get Grime – an emergent group poised to take 2016 by storm. See our feature here.
The Roof Garden: Launch Party | Sat 11 June | Rainbow | £7
A musically diverse, sixteen-week programme of events orchestrated by 02.31 and S.O.U.P. begins on June 11, kicking things off with an all-day, all-night event up on the newly refurbished Roof Terrace. Following a £30k facelift that will see the installation of a brand new heated bar, comfortable seating areas and an all-new bespoke venue entrance, a sunny afternoon of barbecue food and cocktails (completely free) celebrates the reopening of Rainbow’s most summery space before giving way to a hedonistic rooftop party rocking till sunrise.

Wax On Wax Off | Fri 10 June | LAB11 | £7
Analogue is king as LAB11 entertains old-school audiophiles with a vinyl-only night of house, techno and disco jams.

With sets from Billy Bayliss, James Hardy, Dr Love and more.
Peaches and Cream | Sat 11 June | LAB11 | From £6
Following a successful, invite-only launch party, Peaches & Cream take their nostalgic brand of R&B, hip hop and funk to the backstreets of Birmingham, pumping out the sounds of Usher, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z and more on the terrace of LAB11 to a bopping crowd of dewy-eyed music lovers.
