UK THUMP LAUNCH with MIKE SKINNER + B.TRAITS + MJ COLE
UK THUMP LAUNCH with MIKE SKINNER + B.TRAITS + MJ COLE + THUMP DJs + REDLINE [ROOM 2]
To celebrate the launch of Thump UK, the forthcoming electronic music and culture platform for VICE, VICE takes over XOYO for one night, featuring Mike Skinner, MJ Cole and B. Traits on December 6th. Dedicated to exploring electronic music and culture, Thump UK is a brand new, different kind of music website. A platform for opinion pieces, investigative stories and exciting new music, Thump UK gets to know the people at the heart of the scene: not just the DJs and artists, but the taste-makers, legends and pioneers that make electronic music and culture so vital and forward-thinking. Thump UK launches on December 4th 2013.
Best known as the voice of The Streets, Mike Skinner is a modern UK legend. His career has seen him become one of the best loved figures in urban UK music: experimenting with the classic sounds of garage, drum 'n' bass, house and hip hop with his now characteristically witty, honest and original perspective.
Support on the night comes from another modern UK legend, MJ Cole. As one of the most respected garage artists around, MJ Cole's soulful sound (in hits like 'Sincere') and has made him stands out from the crowd, and he continues to bring a rich flavour to the scene. Completing the bill is Canadian DJ and producer B. Traits, one of the newest faces of UK radio. After her stint on air as one of BBC Radio 1's In New DJs We Trustseries, she now hosts her weekly BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra show of forward-thinking electronic music to growing praise. Further support on the night comes from Thump UK DJs.
