Sum Cellar 2nd Birthday | Sat Apr 22 | LAB11 | £8
It’s Sum Cellar’s second birthday and they’ve got a hell of a lot to celebrate, having transformed from a secret cellar event to a hugely popular party in only a couple of years. Sum Cellar have managed to capture that nostalgic house party vibe, but instead of awkwardly standing around the room as you did in old high school gatherings, the entire crowd moves en mass. They never seem to stop to rest; dancing non-stop all night long and who can blame them? With tunes supplied by a stellar line-up including the up and coming Conducta, who will no doubt combine rough UK Garage bass with deliciously smooth R&B vocals creating some gritty rhythms for the crowd to get down to.

It’s a celebration of Birmingham’s up and coming underground talent both within music and fashion and it’ll showcase a range of styles including fashion brands and designer VTG wear all with a tasty Tokyo twist.

Celebrating 8 Years of Eglo Records | Sat Apr 22 | Hare and Hounds | £10
Leftfoot and MoodFix combine forces to celebrate Eglo Records 8th Birthday with some of the incredibly talented DJs signed to the label. Henry Wu will bring with him effortless style that oozes out of every track he plays. He’s had some high praise from the likes of Giles Peterson and Bonobo, and it’s easy to see why once you listen to any of his sell out records; the tantalising, no fuss rhythms create the perfect laid back party vibe. Alexander Nut and Steve Spacek combine to turn this line-up into a terrific trio, each one of them capable of enchanting the crowd with luxurious beats.
