Approaching the 3rd year of DO IT!, 2012 will see a change in focus from events to production and an end to our Aberdeen nights. More news on that in time for our final birthday bash at Snafu in December. For our penultimate party, we just had to take things back to the original venue, Cellar Bar 35, for memory sake. A fresh DJ/producer talent from Glasgow and the man behind one of the most respected modern hip hop labels around are in place to make them. Check out the event links below for details and enjoy a fine mix from ALL CITY honcho Olan.
A skweee showcase introducing one of the best known labels in the genre, direct from Norway and in the UK for the very first time to launch the debut Dødpop artist LP, ‘Kosmik Regn’ by Beatbully. Having sent the dancefloor into a mass skweee sprawl at Unsound, By:Larm and Øya last year - this gig will deliver live sets from key members of the Nordic imprint: Beatbully, Sprutbasss & Melkeveien. With DJ support from DO IT! residents (Uraki Riddim, Kid Bell & White Chocolate) and Hush Hush honcho Giles Walker, visuals by Uber AV and a Funktion One soundsystem - the event promises to be an exciting introduction to the conflict r’n’b and synthetic funk sounds of this Scando analogue movement that has gathered international interest.
