SKREAM (U.K), Saturday 28th October @ FU

DirtyCash in association with 95BFM presentsSKREAM
Direct from the U.K for one night only!
Saturday 28th October @ FU


Skream has virtually built the foundations of London's most exiciting new musical style, Dubstep! With his defining 12" releases on Tempa Recordings, Skream has voyaged into ground breaking sonic territory, unleashing sub bass experiments of seismic proportions.

Skream's dubstep vision borrows from the skanked out vibes of reggae culture through to dark tech flavours.

A vision not afraid to fuse jamaician dancehall smut with hooky melodies, ringtone bleeps with torrents of cinematic atmosphere. Enter 'Midnight Request Line', Skream's anthemic explosion of electro arpeggios and deep dub excursions, and with Skream's debut album set to hit shelves any minute, the timing is right to witness a true pioneer unleashing a true 21st Century sound.

Currently tearing up the airwaves with support from Gilles Peterson & Mary Ann Hobbs on her legendary Breezeblock Show on BBC 1, not to mention a virtual dominace of the London pirate network, Skream and Dubstep are set to blow up on a truely global scale.

This is your chance to witness the club scene going foward and into the future with the man at the heart of the scene. Skream!.

Throw in local support from Jason Howson, Stinky Jim, Ghetto Royalty, Wilberforce & One Louder, bringing everything from Grime, Crunk & Dancehall head to head with the heavyweight Dubstep vibe & you got a party not be missed!

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
