Samurai.fm Launch Party!
Samurai.fm Sessions UK
…THE LAUNCH PARTY!
Having conquered their home country of Japan, where they are proud to call themselves ‘the nations favourite electronic music radio station’ Samurai.fm (www.samurai.fm) are now planning to take over the UK starting (of course…) here in London.
Samurai.fm Sessions UK will see the station set up their first UK club residency at East London’s super trendy hangout Herbal, set deep in the heart of fashionista central. Don’t let this put you off cos each month Samurai.fm residents will be joined by artists and labels featured on the station representing the true sounds of Samurai.fm
The music policy is simple: Quality electronic sounds from all genres from breaks to hip hop to house to drum n bass and back again as represented by Samurai.fm put simply… You’ll be hearing some very cool music.
All events will be recorded for broadcast on the station a couple of weeks after the party so clubbers will be able to relive their favourite sets or hear what they missed!
For the launch party of 3rd March, the main room will lean heavily towards the sounds of breaks with Samurai residents TCR Records will be headlining the main room with a special appearance from the mighty JDS. Joining JDS for a rare London date will be Lot 49’s Dylan Rhymes playing a very special live set as never before heard in a club. Completing the downstairs line-up is Samurai.fm’s break beat duo Canine Sounds doing what they do best, laying down some fierce breaks.
Upstairs is electro with Ben ‘Fat Trucker’ Rhymer from the Gucci Sound system joining the home-grown sound of samurai with some of the station’s Japanese artists entertaining, Ben, best known for his Fat Truckers work has been playing of late with the great Riton as Gucci Sound system, the duo fast gaining a massive following with their DexnFX electro shows. Teqnicolor Sound’s Maxrelaxx will be playing his usual selection of ‘never heard it before but fuck it’s cool’ minimal electechno early on before the newest samurai stars, just back from their tour of Poland, The Future Sound of Clapton take over the decks with the freshest east London electro sounds.
