Enter Shikari’s singer Rou Reynolds has promised a “colossal” DJ set at this Friday’s Crossfire Halloween Massacre in association with Vans. Playing records with drummer Rob Rolfe under their DJ names Rout and Sgt Rolfy, the pair are set to cause havoc on the decks at London’s most raucous Halloween party.
In related Massacre news, XFM’s most requested mash up DJ STEREO:TYPE has released a 53 minute Halloween Mixtape featuring a plethora of artists from rock and dance including Nine Inch Nails, Guns and Roses, The Prodigy, Rage Against the Machine, Skrillex and many more as part of the FOUND Series at Hidden Club.
This year’s Massacre is held at Hidden Club, 100 Tinmouth Street, Vauxhall, London, SE11 5EQ on Friday 28th October 2011. Expect an explosive Halloween themed night where 3 rooms will be buzzing with a stunning line up of in your face dubstep, electro, drum and bass, punk and metal DJs. This year’s event also hosts the Toxic Wasters skateboard sticker art exhibition featuring deadly, toxic, nuclear wasted work from 12 of the best graphic illustrators in London.
Trouble and Bass trio TOMB CREW will be smashing the beats with ILLAMAN MC on mic duties to kick start the night, followed by Black Butter Records’ producer and one of London’s most prolific bass scene DJs RACK N RUIN. 2 members of the mighty ENTER SHIKARI will also join the party and drop some filthy dubstep on the decks, so lookout for ROUT and SGT ROLFY who will be followed by Brighton’s eccentric bass leader, HIGH RANKIN with vocalist TIGERLIGHT.
The Vans Room will host a live set by Brooklyn’s most destructive hardcore band, CEREBRAL BALLZY. The raging, 5-piece punk band will annihilate the Massacre with tracks from their self-titled debut album that has received critical acclaim in Britain’s influential music magazines. Expect carnage. This room will also deliver the very best classic rock, metal, punk rock and hip hop all night long courtesy of Total Rock’s TALITA TWOSHOES who returns for her 4th year at this event. Following their latest sets at the Kerrang! Awards and Reading Festival, Crossfire founders James Sherry & Zac Slack will be rolling out the CROSSFIRE SOUND SYSTEM with upbeat party tracks followed by the one and only STEREO:TYPE. New DJs added to the bill this week include the LAST RESORT crew and SWEET DREAMS.
