Abstract Orchestra Play MF DOOM


A dark and brooding interpretation of the masked VILLAIN’s finest work

Abstract Orchestra return with their MF DOOM set, focusing on the work of DOOM and collaborations such as MF DOOM and Madlib (MADVILLAIN).

Making some of the most exciting music in hip hop, Abstract Orchestra blend jazz orchestration with hip hop beats and MCs. The 18 piece, all star, big band create music that is both heavy and beautiful, pushing the boundaries of live hip hop. Abstract Orchestra explore original samples used in hip hop joints, orchestrated across the ensemble, masterfully reinterpreting the music of hip hop greats, such as J Dilla and MADVILLAIN.  The group have toured and recorded with the likes of MF DOOM, Slum Village, and Illa J and supported Yasiin Bey, Talib Kweli, and The Zulu Nation.

Taking influences from Quincy Jones, Lalo Schifrin, and David Shire, the arranger, Rob Mitchell sits somewhere between Madlib and Quincy Jones. With classic aspects of big band writing, a focus on improvisation, and mad respect for hip hop, this set is high-energy and high-octane head nods from start to finish.

Teachings In Dub – 25 years of Dubkasm


Teachings In Dub

25 years of Dubkasm

The mighty Dubkasm celebrate 25 years in dub!

They’ve called in some huge special guests (to be announced very soon) as well insisting the event be powered by 10 scoops of Firmly Rooted Soundsystem – this will be a heavyweight session to remember!

Dubkasm are comprised of childhood friends Digistep and DJ Stryda, who kicked off their dub project in the mid-’90s before going on to launch their Sufferah’s Choice label in 2003 in order to showcase their studio productions. Their 2009 debut album ‘Transform I’ was a culmination of their work so far, collecting tracks from their previous 12-inches and including vocal turns from Dub Judah, Levi Roots and Afrikan Simba. A dub version of the entire record along with a remix CD completed the Transform I Trilogy in 2010.

Please note, this is a standing show.
