Pretty Pretty Good head back to Sheffield for another party at The Harley, with Wisdom Teeth label bosses Facta and K-Lone the latest to benefit from the Pretty Pretty Good team’s hospitality. Bass music takes center stage as the pair take command with the support of PPG favourite Yak, meaning there will be no mid-summer lull in Southern Yorkshire this year. Calling on Dedication Audio and 20Hz Soundsystem for sound, and with live visual art from Zaron Mizmeras, the party will look to pick up where previous instalments have left off and make this the perfect prelude for next month’s Tramlines launch party featuring Call Super.
Pretty Pretty Good have been at the helm of a fair few killer parties by now, and they’ll be excited to team up with the Wisdom Teeth crew, whose brand of UKG influenced bass music has proven popular within the context of techno and grime’s growing convergence. With Wisdom’s first four releases all being joint efforts, releases from K-Lone, Wen, Facta and Etch have managed to retain a distinct label aesthetic thanks to their dark dancefloor vibes, and the powers that be will no doubt try and compound this during their time in the booth. Facta, whose releases have also been put out by Tempa and Bristol imprint Idle Hands, has made a habit of crafting dub-heavy, moody cuts and DJ sets to match, whilst Leeds’ K-Lone has shown similar tendencies since his first release in 2015.
Yak, a regular at PPG events, has already started on the trail towards bass music notoriety, with plays on Rinse FM courtesy of Silas & Snare, Keysound and Swamp 81 sounding the alarm for some huge tunes. He should be a great complement to the Wisdom Teeth crew; Pretty Pretty Good will be hoping that well-thought bookings like these will show them to be some of the wisest promoters in town.
PPG’s second event of the summer welcomes Dekmatel’s very own Call Super to The Hartley for their very own Tramlines launch party July 21st. With support coming in form of two back to back sets featuring Triple Point, Smorsli, Yak and Kundan, Pretty Pretty Good are primed and ready to kick off the festivities nice and early for Tramlines.
