ITF – Fri 20th May 2016

In The Face celebrates its 6th Birthday!

And we are doing it in style with 2 absolutely killer headliners who both debut at Volks, Taiki Nulight & Holy Goof, not to mention the long awaited return of Hadean, newcomers King Hydra & techno/mutant bass badman Yeahhbuzz! Expect stickers and plenty of birthday cake too…and in Room 2 we have Soundcrumpet providing extra rig and some tasty sounds to go with it , and brand new london collective 2_Bit bringing some arcade-game inspired sounds

? ROOM 1 ?

(Night Bass/Dim Mak/Black Butter)
We are very pleased to present one of the scenes biggest producers, and someone who has worked with the very best including his latest EP with Chris Lorenzo, as well as classic tracks such as Levels & BS3 with My Nu Leng. Seriously forward thinking bass music, but still with a dancefloor edge, this internationally renowned producer will be bringing the bassy bangers for us.

(Four40/Party Like Us)
Sometimes brand new producers hit us with not just a splash but a major bang, and Holy Goof is definitely one of those. From his first EP on Certified Bangers just over a year ago he has gone from strength to strength, with a slew of successful EPs backed up by some serious bootlegs (like his killer version of grime classic Wen I’m ‘Ere) Recent collaborations with Notion and one forthcoming with Flava D, this producer is one to watch this year, with distorted, ringing basslines over thumpy 4×4 beats.

(Tumble Audio/In The Face)
In The Face’s boy wonder returns from his lengthy travels around the Asiatic continents, and of course one of his first gigs back had to be returning to his residency with us. After the huge success of his EP on Tumble we can only speculate as to what crazy influences he has bought back from abroad, but if last years The Raid EP is anything to go by you can expect floorkilling basslines combined with frenetic, garage influenced beats.

(Project Allout/3000 Bass)
Another newcomer to the scene, this Brighton based duo have had a series of killer bootlegs out on 3000 Bass, as well as a debut EP on Project Allout Records. Working on a follow up you can expect influences from grime, UK Funky, garage & of course bassline from these guys, with an ever-increasing roster of fresh productions, all with bass firmly in mind.

(Horror Boogie/Bass Hound)
When we heard this Irish based producer was moving up to Scotland we had to bring him down for one last hurrah, a stalwart of the old mutant bass guard, Yeahhbuzz is still combining heavy basslines with pounding kickdrums, but also branching out into other areas, such as the heavier side of techno. We’re not sure what to expect but we know it’s going to be brutal.

(Act Normal)
Another Irish based bass badman, Inflatable Fuhrer is the head honcho of night & label Act Normal Records, and after turning the downstairs into his own personal St Paddys Day playpen at the last In The Face, he will be gracing upstairs with his presence at this one. Expect plenty of wobble & bounce.

? ROOM 2 ?

A brand new London based collective combining arcade aesthetics with techno and 8-bit sounds, they will be debuting their style at this event, the first of many!
