Following the success of three sell out shows in the basement of Plan B in Brixton, we are excited to announce our biggest event to date on Friday 23rd May 2014 at The Colombian – the brand new venue next door to the legendary Corsica Studios in Elephant & Castle. What better way to kick off the Spring bank holiday weekend?
To mark the occasion we’ve recruited an all Med School lineup. Only a year since his Med School debut with “Unfolding” and now hosting the Xtra Talent show on BBC Xtra, Etherwood headlines alongside Lung, who makes the trip from Cardiff, and brand new Med School signing Keeno. We also welcome Joe Syntax and Anile back to the fold. Ash from the label will once again be representing, with Ruthless MC on hosting duties.
Tickets for our last event sold out in only 9 days – don’t sleep, this will be epic!
We wanted to delve deeper and find out a bit more about the artists involved in the spectacular new Rawtekk remix EP “Sprouted and Reformed”, so we caught up with Phace, Mefjus, Billain and Rawtekk.

What is the drum and bass scene like in Hamburg? I think Hamburg has an allover cool D&B scene. It surely is not as big as it was, but that pretty much is the same for any German city to be honest. D&B has had its peak in the past over here, but the music still plays its consistent role in the underground electronic music scene. I do actually feel it is coming back a little with all the melting together of genres these days, which is a cool thing to happen in my view.
For those that have never visited the city before is there any particular spot you advise to visit? In terms of night life out here, I unfortunately do not have a lot of time these days to follow it that much to be honest…. But there are still cool parties going on in venues like Continue to read…
