Deadly Rhythm Launch Party W/ 2562 & Koreless: Preview
It's been on the cards for a while now - Numbers laid the foundation and now Glasgow has truly announced itself as a premier location for the new wave of UK Bass. Artists like Koreless, Raksha & Kid Robotik are flying the flag with sounds which both reflect Glasgow as a dub-centric melting pot and also personify the constantly developing progression of underground music. This is where Deadly Rhythm come in.
Founded in London back in 2007 you could perhaps suggest that they've followed the rumbling of sub-bass as it's migrated further and further north. Originally started as a Dubstep night the music policy now incorporates everything from Future Garage to deep moving House, enlisting some of the finest local talent to support headliners such as Martyn, Instra:mental and this weekend's 2562.
2562 or A Made Up Sound as he's been known has carved his own direction through subsonic bass, twisting Dubstep through Techno and creating sub genre's which at times defy description. Now touring his third album 'Fever' this is a golden opportunity to experience his strictly unique reflection on underground music. Joining him will be Glasgow based artist, Koreless, fast becoming one of the most exciting up and coming producers in the UK. Likened to Four Tet, James Blake and Sbtrkt his sound is one that goes far beyond definitive genre labelling - think melodic bass, wrapped around urban soundscapes and you might get an idea of the truly organic notions being thrown around here. If that wasn't enough Synth favourite Raksha will be warming up alongside residents Masha, Aleksi and PCR. Check the blog tomorrow for more on Raksha - he's packing some serious heat!
Ultimately the launch of Deadly Rhythm in Glasgow is a consolidation of where the city might be heading over the next few years, the talent bubbling under the surface now may well become leading lights in 2011 and with a strong localised backbone and a desire to push things forward we're sure Deadly Rhythm will be with them every step of the way...
