Edinburgh based party people XY will be moving into their new home at La Belle Angele on Friday 1st of July, where they will return every second Friday of the month. The venue is one of the cities most popular spots; especially since the revered Nightvision parties have been taking place there for a couple of years. This move in from XY will be bringing with it more fine DJ talent, with the first party set to welcome Jakwob.
Digital Soundboy staple and first wave dubstep remixer Jakwob is one of the most versatile DJs in his genre. Although his remix catalogue is mainly wobbly dubstep rhythms, he has been known to play everything from D&B to house and techno. Having remixed the likes of Ellie Goulding, Breakage and Lana Del Rey, his music is a balance between accessible and underground, making it great dance floor material.
This year Jakwob has split to his second alias Kindred, the moniker under which he makes drum and bass. Having been signed to MTA Records under Kindred and been given Zane Lowe’s hottest record in the world accolade in the past, he has already set a standard, however things will be taking an even more exciting turn soon as he releases an EP on Tiga’s world renowned Turbo Recordings very soon.
Jakwob will be joined by XY residents Makaze and TODD, who will be playing back to back, as well as Prescribed DJ Jacob Wilcox.
