Zeus Bar & Nightclub, Friday 24th October
For our first Alternate instalment, we've invited UK garage legend WOOKIE, BBC Radio 1Xtra's DJ Q, Birthday boy MAJORA + a host of friends and guests.
Wookie is without question, one of the most talented UK producers of all time and a true UK garage pioneer. Over a career which spans nearly 25 years, he has worked with and remixed the music of Soul II Soul, Public Enemy, Nas, Destiny’s Child, Disclosure, Justin Timberlake, Sia, Zed Bias and Gabrielle to name a few. His own productions, such as ‘Battle’, ‘Scrappy’, ‘What’s Going On’ and ‘Back Up (To Me)’ were some of the first UKG tracks to make it into the UK and US charts. Formal credentials including MOBO and Ericsson awards and nominations for Best Producer and Best Remix reflect the quality of his music. Expect a plethora of tight garage beats, smooth silky vocals and plunging basslines.
Alongside Wookie, we welcome Huddersfield's illustrious UKG/House don DJ Q.
Q's roots lie deep in the early 00s bassline and 4x4 garage scene with his productions still drawing influence from that era to this day. However, he is now considered a true household UKG/House connoisseur, since his BBC Radio 1Xtra residency. Q requested a 2 hour set for this show, in which we hope to witness a masterclass of multi-genre mixing.
In support, we have the talents of Majora. His fast-rising profile and recent productions prompted us to invite him back and grace the decks once again for a special birthday set.
