All this and more will run through two bone shaking sound systems housed in a huge, fully licensed East London warehouse space for the ultimate in underground parties. Get warmed up for Notting Hill Carnival 2009 with Urban Nerds!
For the third year running the Nerds return with an unforgettable August line-up, moving the party into bigger, better surroundings as they take over an enormous East London warehouse space. Shhh! It’s a secret! Ticket holders will be informed of the location via ticketweb, Facebook and the website before the event!
MJ Cole takes control of their tummy-rumbling sound system this year. Expect summertime anthems, deep minimal garage vibes and some of those good times old skool flavours from this old skool garage legend! Just remember... be Sincere! Having recently remixed Dan Black and with a stream of new dance-floor singles to come on his own Prolific label over the next 6 months, 2009 looks to be an exciting year for MJ Cole.
The Nerds are also proud to present two more legendary selectors in the form of DJ Zinc, retuning to the booth on a fresh tip with a string of bass led house and electro beat from the likes of Fake Blood, Jack Beats, Mad Decent and the Trouble & Bass Crew! Meanwhile Mampi Swift comes with the original junglist and drum & bass vibe, with the sound that helped pioneer bass music, as we know it today.
Representing the upfront sounds of the underground is Mumdance, with a unique electro and grime-fuelled assault! There’s more underground mayhem from the motor-mouthed and unmistakable Flirta D and Rinse FM’s DJ Vectra, plus, one of the biggest frontrunners in UK Funky and BBC 1XTRA selector, Footloose, who’s fresh from mixing Ministry of Sound’s 2009 smash compilation, ‘The Sound of UK Funky’ alongside DJs Pioneer and Supa-D!
It wouldn’t be a Carnival warm-up party without some tasty tropical vibes so Urban Nerds selectors Rattus Rattus & Klose One take to four decks with resident MC, Illaman, with an extra-special Carnival history set incorporating the biggest dancehall smashers, and Notting Hill favourites we’ve heard over the years! There’s also ragga, dub, reggae and a whole lot more from Rinse FM DJs, The Heatwave, described by The Metro as "London’s premier purveyors of dancehall".
