With four acts revealed and many more still to come, UKF Bass Culture has already laid claim to being the red hot ticket this New Years Eve. Early birds have sold out and with savers rapidly heading in the same direction, this is the place to welcome in the New Year. The iconic O2 Brixton Academy will host the night, with Chase & Status (DJ set), Foreign Beggars, Shy FX & B.traits and KOAN Sound so far announced. We can now add a further three colossal names to the bill, as UKF Bass Culture sets the standard as the UK’s biggest dance event this New Years Eve…
DRUMSOUND & BASSLINE SMITH
After an incredible twelve months of breath-taking moments, ranging from explosive festival performances to the release of his critically acclaimed third album ‘Nextlevelism’, we are delighted to confirm DJ Fresh for UKF Bass Culture NYE. The drum and bass legend has had a spectacular year, kicking things off with ‘Hot Right Now’ becoming one of the biggest selling singles of the year. 2012 has also seen Fresh continue with his FRESH/LIVE concept by taking it on a sold out UK tour. Fresh has also delivered an unforgettable DJ set on the UKF Bass Culture main stage at South West Four, displaying his musical diversity in the process. As he closes the doors on an extraordinary 2012, Brixton Academy will be gifted with a phenomenal DJ set.
Joining Fresh are a pair of producers plucked from RAM’s next generation of talent; Delta Heavy. In February and March the duo embarked on a hugely successful tour of Australia, USA and Canada, showcasing some of the most exciting new music to emerge from the genre in recent times. Since their first remix back in June 2009, they have worked with the likes of Nero, Maverick Sabre, Example and Chase & Status. A hugely respected act who are sure to leave their mark on Brixton Academy, we are delighted to welcome Delta Heavy.
Drumsound & Bassline Smith have carved out a reputation as one of drum and bass’ most influential players, delivering their trademark beats to dance floors across the world. In early 2012 they were rewarded for their efforts by winning ‘Best Track’ and ‘Best Video’ awards for ‘Close’ at the Official Drum & Bass Awards. The trio have completed a number of mixes for BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra and regularly receive support from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and MistaJam for their mind-blowing studio productions. For over a decade they have ensured their place at the top of the scene, showcasing a vastly diverse collection of music wherever they go. Set to raise the roof, London better be ready when Drumsound & Bassline Smith arrive this New Year’s Eve.
