birthday goodie bags
After a mini-break, Room 303 returns; or rather Room 707 as we’re smashing it out 7th birthday style! And of course we only want to celebrate the tearing up of dancefloors for seven solar rotations in the most marvellously devastating of fashions. So, not only will we be having another early start of 9pm (get down early as it’ll be totally worth your while!) but – as always – we’ve invited very special guests to bring birthday goodie bags packed full of gabba cakes, party snare poppers and amen break twizzles alongside the usual residents who’ll undoubtedly be bouncing up and down and running round like loons before being sick in the corner. Providing the music for this intense evening of celebration are:
ANORAK (Jungle Syndicate / OffMeNut)
An absolute legend of the breakcore scene, we’ve been obsessing over Anorak ever since catching utterly gobsmacking sets in his home base of Bristol and, of course, destroying Boomtown’s Prohibition Den. This man has chopped more amens than Gordon Ramsey has onions (shit analogy, go home, you’re drunk – ed.) and peppers his insane break edits with twinkly melodies, rave barks and acidic squelches to make the most manic and joyful gabba-breakcore that is bound to get you raving your tits off and make for a fucking amazing night!
BAXTA (Hell is Hard/Headfuck Records)
Baxta has been absolutely exploding onto the gabber scene as of late. Live he’s played at huge events alongside massive names (including Ibiza Goes Hard, Horizon and Oblivion) and, as one third of UKTM, has had tunes on skullcracking labels such as Headfuck records (getting support from legends of the scene such as Akira, amongst others). His amazing sets reveal a diverse range of styles and influences, so expect crunching, clanging crossbreed and breakcore to sit perfectly alongside the most stomping gabber and speedcore. This is going to seriously go off!
Plus more resident and guest-based action:
Pied piper of partying – whether it’s banging freeform, hellish DnB or anthemic Dutch gabber, it’s guaranteed to have you going nuts.
New daddy Bee-log is bringing a more breakcore-oriented direction to his usual gabber mashups; super fast mentalist devastation promised!
BLACKLIGHTS & BUTANE
Guests of honour, these two are provided the dirtiest and filthiest in bass-led electro.
MUMBLIST vs SINISTATEK
A super special b2b – the Room 303 stalwart goes to battle against the Tinnitus resident; expect amens, kicks and dark rhythms to spatter out in the melee!
