Last Saturday night saw Switch open its doors to house and bass record label Food Music, and with the two label bosses Shadow Child and Kry Wolf on the line up, with the added flavour of Eli and Fur, it was a mouth watering prospect. Needless to say, it lived up to its expectations, a packed out Southampton crowd laying witness to a swashbuckling showcase of the brands potential.
It has been another fantastic year for Bondax. From being bedroom producers, to getting airtime on BBC radio one, to now selling out shows up and down the country, the Lancashire born duo are quite simply killing it. With a new album out featuring the likes of Karma Kid, Darius and Olsen they have managed to shake off the stigma of just being the ‘Northern Disclosure’ (albeit not a bad comparison to have put on you). Having seen all the praise and adulation from publications such as Mixmag, to The Guardian, we at Noise Cannon decided to see what all the fuss was about for ourselves, catching them on there album tour ‘Bondax & Friends’ down in Southampton at Switch.
Fresh from slaying everywhere from Chicago, to Napoli, to Ibiza this summer, Hot Since 82 is one of the fastest rising stars in electronic music. A massive essential mix, the launching of his Taken project, which sold out in 30 minutes, and his new imprint Knee Deep In Sound getting off to a successful start back in March, has seen the Barnsley born DJ’s already growing stock meteorically rise. Now we are heading into the winter months his progression doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. His new single ’Somebody Everybody’, featuring Black Box, is already sending shockwaves on dancefloors up and down the country, with the first compilation album off his label Knee Deep In Sound due to hit stores the 17th November. Shortly after releasing details of the album, a pre-album promotional tour was in the mist, and it was time to get Knee Deep in Southampton.
