Two of our favourite Dubstep producers Monkey & Stagga have now officially joined the Chrome Kids family and will be going out alongside Kaptin deejaying under the Chrome Kids name. Anyone in the Wales area should already be familiar with their skills as Dubstep DJs, not to mention they're classic Hip-hop / Bashment sets as Optimas Prime but now Chrome Kids will also be incorporating the kind of music found in the blog. So depending on what night they play you can expect some Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Bmore, Grime and just any generally dirty bass heavy Hip-hop based badness. For bookings email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can catch their debut outing at the Swn Festival in Cardiff, Wales. A weekend event across the city curated by BBC Radio 1 DJ - Huw Stephens.
Chrome Kids will be playing on Friday 14th November at Tafod just over the river in Riverside opposite the Millenium Stadium. It's a strong line up which is co-curated by us. Here's a quick breakdown of the acts playing that night.
TAFOD LINE UP - SWN FESTIVAL - FRIDAY 14TH NOVEMBER
Veteran and legend are perhaps titles that are too throwaway these days to show the amount of respect deserved by ‘the original Nort’ London dark heart dapper dan’ himself.Who will be performing alongside...
An emcee who has been murdering beats in all shapes and sizes for the last few years and remains one of the most exciting microphone terrorists on these shores today.
(YSI) Skinnyman - When I Give My Heart To You
(YSI) Durrty Goodz - Switching Songs Part II (The Good Ol' Days)
KING CANNIBAL (Ninja Tunes)
Hailed as Ninja Tune’s new Dubstep signing, but such boxed limitations hardly do any justice to the many levels of dark and brutal digital bass driven beats explored on his new album Aragami Style.
(ZShare) King Cannibal - Cannibalism Mix 08 for Solid Steel / Alt Link / Tracklisting
TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS
Having served up some filthy electro remixes for the likes of Sugababes, DJ IQ (the mighty 8 Bars Of Fire) and of course the brand new remix of Foreign Beggars and Dubbledge's new track Gash (see below)and receiving Radio 1 support which included a live mix on Swn curator Huw Stephens show. The Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs descend on the night with a bag full of killer prehistoric dubplates made of granite.
(YSI) Foreign Beggars ft Dubbledge & Kyza - Hit That Gash (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix)
Having worked with the likes of Alkaline (Gunshot), Jehst, Cappo, Braintax, Task Force, Roots Manuva and Aspects you would expect big things from Junior Disprol’s crew Dead Residents (alongside DJ Stagga and Chud Jackson). Thankfully their new album Triple Crown is one of the finest slices of digitized Hip-hop this side of the solar system and this is a rare (and not to be missed) chance to catch them live and direct.
(YSI) Dead Residents - Smash Robot Vs Pacman Ghost
And of course, DJ sets from a lethal combination of Welsh Hip-hop and Dubstep supremos MONKEY and STAGGA along with the party pirate himself KAPTIN who shall be holding it down for the digitally mutated bastard offspring of Hip-hop.
(YSI) Monkey - Join Us
(YSI) Stagga - Freight Dub
(YSI) Monkey - So High (No Vocal)
(YSI) Stagga - LSD User
(YSI) Monkey - Badness
(YSI) Stagga - Sick As Sin
Provisional times are as follows:
Chrome Kids - 9:30pm
Dead Residents - 10:00pm
