Phase Transition and Heritage London are proud to present a 50-hour journey through UK sound system culture. Showcasing the foundations of UK Garage, Dubstep, Grime and Drum and Bass this promises to be the biggest collective of UK originators ever assembled.
Streaming from Friday 14th May to Monday 17th May to mark Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, the event will raise money for the mental health charity Mind. Money raised from donations to the stream will be given to this inspirational organisation which has been so important in helping artists and others through this difficult time. Deck duties for the first 24 hours will be handled by none other than DJ Hatcha.
The original Dubstep DJ has been digging through his acetates from back in the day and is ready to embark on a 100% vinyl only marathon session. Hatcha will retrace the foundations of the revolutionary sound that exploded out of Croydon in the early ‘00s and rapidly became a dominant force in global dance music. MCs Crazy D and Sergeant Pokes will join Hatcha for the first 24 hours.
For the final 26-hour stretch, Hatcha’s invited a who’s who of artists that have inspired and supported him over his 25-year career. The stream will host some of the true originators; artists who’ve been instrumental in establishing some of the key genres in UK underground dance music including, but definitely not limited to, Benny Ill, El-B, Juiceman, Skream, Youngsta, Slimzee, Killa-P, Logan Sama, Flowdan, Jamakabi, Plastician b2b Tubby, Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont, Martin Larner, Cartier, Grooverider and the mighty DJ Hype.
Phase Transition and Heritage London hope to inspire a new generation of artists to continue pushing the sound and culture forward while supporting Mental Health Awareness Week 2021.The stream will be streamed globally on twitch, youtube and facebook and broadcast live on Trickstar Radio in Brighton and surrounding areas; trickstarradio.com
