With festival season sitting nicely in the rear view, we’re now well underway with launching several weighty album campaigns to shake up the second half of 2018.
Here’s a small (but not freakishly small) selection of anticipated debuts to get you started – plus news from our distribution arm, the chance to win a Numark PT-01 portablist turntable at the world’s premier DJ competition and a playlist roundup to help you discover where all our artists are popping up these days… Stay stormy.
Danish dark wave favourites drop “menacing” new single
Already known for his work performing as part of George FitzGerald and Makeness’ live outfits, Peter steps out to release his debut EP ‘Rivals’ – an accomplished body of work that encompasses electronica, techno and post rock. BBC Radio 1 had the first play of ‘FortyFour’ recently and XLR8R launched the first single online, so keep an eye out for the five-track EP on all major digital platforms from 5th October.
DMC WORLD DJ CHAMPIONSHIP
Youngest ever winner returns to KOKO in October
DJ Rena, the 12-year-old DMC World DJ Championship winner, has announced his return to the competition after breaking records in 2017. This year attendees will also get the chance to win a brand new Numark PT-01 portablist turntable, signed by the DMC champs themselves. Grab a ticket and head down to Camden on 7th October for a day of mind-blowing turntablism shows, back-to-back scratch battles, DJ workshops and more.
