Bringing London another fun soaked, festivalesque, fantasy is Fever 105. This time round they are dedicating their event to the popular game Grand Theft Auto. Providing the usual collective of hip-hop, soul, r&b, funk to house, disco, pop, jazz and more some would be mistaken to think this is just another cheese-fest. Combining only the best beats and rhythms Fever 105 is always a highlight event and their line-up is evidence of this.
DJ Kon of BBE Records is top of the bill. This man has been on the scene since the mid-80s. Having seen the evolution of dance music over the years he will be able to provide the foundations to upon your evening will be built on. KON, which stands for “King of Nothing,”, places the love of music above his own work. One of the last of an increasingly rare breed of crate diggers, Kon brings a deep knowledge of the most obscure beats whilst combining and remixing with the most soulful and well-known tunes.
Following KON is Andrew Ashong. From British-Ghanian descent this artist has soul and jazz running through his veins. Brought up in Forest Hill he started making his own records at the age of 16. Moving from his dance influenced EP Flowers (2012) to the jazz heavy rhythms Andrew Ashong EP (2014) Ashong’s diverse knowledge and love of music is evident throughout his productions as well as his sets. His neo-soul tunes are the focal point upon which his sets are based upon-moving listeners from a mellowed state to a tranced tribal two-step.
Next up is a future star in the making, Bradley Zero. Hailing from Peckham via Leeds, Bradley Zero is quickly becoming the tastemaker of his generation. As founder of the Rhythm Section institution, Bradley has carved out a unique role for himself within London as a resident club DJ, broadcaster and label boss. Since his beginnings at Canavan Peckham Pool Club in 2009 Bradley has developed as an exciting DJ and one of the most influential in London – even helping to shape Boiler Room as a host and a core programmer. His sound is simple, pure rhythm and tribal afrobeat. Audiences abroad are starting to appreciate this man’s talents, so don’t miss out on a chance at seeing him in his hometown.
Playing back-to-back with Bradley Zero is Ruf Dug. A regular on Zero’s NTS radio show, Dug will bring a slightly more tech vibe to proceedings and to the B2B. Don’t be surprised to hear some of the dirtiest cassette techno mixed with some of the most soulful late-night disco numbers.
Playing everything in between will be the Fever resident DJs keeping the soul music blaring from the sound system with a twist- a live saxophone. With the weather scheduled to be tropical, let the vibes take you there.
