R&S Records presents James Blake, Space Dimension Controller, Lone and Pariah

With a discography that spans four decades R&S Records have firmly cemented their place in electronic music history as connoisseurs of the genre both past and present. Classic acts like Aphex Twin, Model 500 and Joey Beltram have all played a part in the labels make-up, as well as providing foundation for the recent rise of the UK’s fragmented electronic scene by getting acts such as James Blake and Pariah at the embryonic stages in their respective careers.

On Friday 23rd November James Blake will be stepping behind the decks for a DJ set that promises to encapsulate the diversity of the label whilst Mancunian psychedelic pop quartet Egyptian Hip-Hop play a live show showcasing tracks from their debut GOOD DONT SLEEP album.

There’s also the chance to catch live sets from Vondelpark ahead of their forthcoming album and intergalactic funk musings from Irish beatsmith Space Dimension Controller. For an idea of where the UK is at right now then look no further than Lone who’s 90’s-influenced album Galaxy Garden is one of this year’s standout long players and Pariah who’s been busy as of late with his Karren techno project and his incredible 'Rift EP'.

Also on DJ duties are Airhead and The Chain who've recently played an amazing back to back set at Green Man festival, as well as regular sets at the 1-800 Dinosaur night at Plastic People.
