WiLDKATS –  Perpetrating (snippet)

The whole night looks pretty great, as the DT guys tell us,

Causing rumblings in the basement for us are emerging deep house luminaries WiLDKATS, a three headed American-Scottish disco-synth crew, fusing 80s funk, deep and dubby basslines and NYC disco undertones in their riveting sets. Fellow Hot Creations label-mate and Creche resident Alexis Raphael will be further demonstrating his talents, spinning a unique blend of house, disco and techno.

Supporting these two delvers are shadowy, elusive duo Waze & Odyssey, fusing the sounds of future garage with house sensibilities and slow mo jams, while New Talent favourite and burgeoning two-step distorters CSY & Stripes are also on the bill to show you why they’ve got everyone from A Trak to Tittsworth in a tizz over their stepping, immediate and swelling sound. We also invite rising London name and dance music aficionado Charlie Tarr to warm up the plates for our tightly packed-in night.

Earlybird tickets are only £5 but will go up to £7 before the night and cost £10 on the door. Check the Facebook event for more info.
