Soundcrash presents a night of future rave, twisted soul and irresistible boogie. 5 of the most exciting and innovative acts in the world at the moment join forces for what can only be described as a mother of a line-up. Koko’s grand surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for a club night like no other, Soundcrash style.

Known as Los Angeles’ “Ambassador of Boogie Funk,” Dâm-Funk represents the citizens of the Funkmosphere. Headquartered in the Leimert Park section of L.A., Dâm (pronounced: ‘Dame’ as in Damon) spent the last few years cultivating a musical renaissance rooted in the early-’80s styles known as Boogie, Modern Soul and Electro-Funk. Now with a fully live show, Dâm Funk takes the classic West Coast tradition into today’s scene by plugging in his arsenal of vintage synths and drum machines, and channeling the galactic harmonies of his inspiration into his own brand of new boogie. Irresistible.

Rustie is one of Britain’s most innovative and ground-breaking producers. Drawing heavily from rave culture as well as the various offshoots of garage and dubstep, Rustie’s music has an intoxicating effect, wrapping itself around your brain like some sort of fluff from Saturn. Irresistibly danceable whilst being intricate as fuck, Rustie’s music willl blow your mind and your socks off. Tonight Soundcrash is proud to present Rustie’s first ever full live show to a London audience. A very lucky audience indeed.

Tokimonsta is the first lady of that unstoppable musical machine that is Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. With her own brand of sentimental bass music she has already conquered the hearts and minds of the most influential taste makers worldwide, and is now embarked in a quest to make a name for herself on the global dancefloor circuit. As subtle as her music can be, she is not shy to drop the heaviest hip hop beats in her sets, so get ready for some serious headbanging action.

Dimlite is lauded as Switzerland’s answer to Flying Lotus, which is a tad unfair as he started making wonky future soul years before FlyLo. His Prismic Tops EP on Stones Throw’s jazzier sister imprint Now-Again is one of the releases of the year. This is Electronic Soul of the highest order played LIVE, and we can’t wait!

In support Soundcrash favourites Paper Tiger will show Koko how to warm a crowd with their Dub infused hip hop… Yeah Bwoy!
