It’s been a short while since we’ve made it down to Printworks and now that the season (and for some reason the weather) is really hotting up we’re determined to get back down there. Here are four great events coming up in March which we think are worth heading to. Check out our Printworks March picks below.
First up on our Printworks March roster we’ve got Kerri Chandler presenting the Kaoz night on the 9th. The first time I saw Kerri Chandler live was the same night I met the guys at In-Reach for the first time, so he’ll always have a special place in my heart. Check out my review of his Printworks show from last year, where he headed up the Hydra.
AVA returns to London at the Printworks with a free daytime conference and ticketed night-time club show on Friday 15th March. The daytime event will feature some of the leading thinkers, artists and industry leaders in electronic music, discussing future projects, their creative process, the current & future landscape and more, e.g. the Smirnoff Equalising Music campaign. This is followed by a club event from 7pm-2am (a welcome rare Friday night event at Printworks). Performances are coming from a range of artists from Or:la who we caught at Farr 2017, to Mall Grab who we’re excited to catch live for the first time.
It’s always nice to see a big grime line-up, and this is a BIG line-up. A few stand-out acts include Jaykae, the Birmingham rapper who’s just dropped Heartache – the final tune in a trilogy of tracks that should worry his GP. Another standout is Casisdead, the hallowing fear-instilling new wave rapper who remains to be the best live performance I’ve personally seen at WHP. Curiously Wiley isn’t on the Eskimo Dance lineup, but he probably wouldn’t have turned up anyway.
Finally, a house event to round off the whirlwind of genres we’ve been through. On my actual birthday (drum roll please) Amnesia is presenting Pyramid, their hugely popular Ibiza show which sold out at Studio 338 near the end of last year. Headlined by one of the biggest names in tech house Kolsch, and the collaborator Tiga with whom he made the track you’re listening to also on the line up, it’s definitely an interesting one.
Let us know if you’re going to any, or what you thought of the nights.
