It’s been just over a year since we last linked up with the guys from OVERGRND and what a year it’s been for them. The crew, originating from Leicester, set up shop in Brighton early last year which is my favourite city in the UK, and they stole my heart because of it. Unfortunately I’ve managed to miss a few of their last gigs but that void in my life is about to be filled as next weekend marks the launch of OVERGRND’s very own label, right here at The Nest in Dalston.
Now whilst it’s all cool and dandy to support some like-minded individuals in creating their own label and effectively sticking it to the man, the main reason we’re all here is for the tuneage, and the line-up for the event is killer.
Headlining the show they have a special b2b performance from Serial Killaz & the rising star Bladerunner. Fresh off the back of his “best jungle track” of the year award, Bladerunner has stormed into 2018. With his trio, Kings of The Rollers (Serum, Bladerunner & Voltage) selling out shows weekly, releasing under Hosptial Records and Bladerunner himself being dubbed the new generation of Jungle, he is the act I’m most excited for.
That being said, we can’t take away from the likes of Serial Killaz, who have over 15 years of experience between them. These geezers ooze prestige, and if you don’t know who they are, you’re probably on the wrong site.
Ahead of their first release, OVERGRND are offering free CD copies of the compilation to the keen beans who post their names on the event wall. Worth it IMO.
Tickets on final release here.
See ya there!
