Coldcut (Ninja Tune), Mike Ladd, Juice Aleem (Big Dada, Ninja Tune), Raj Pannu (Coldcut, Ninja Tune DJ), visuals from Novak.
For the last Bank Holiday weekend Sunday in 2012, a super special Fresh Hell, with Coldcut, pioneers and Godfathers of cut and paste, electronic music DJ/AV culture, and creators of Ninja Tune, one of the most respected independent record labels in the World. As well as Dj'ing, Coldcut's Matt Black will also be playing live using the soon to be released App for iPad and iPhone, 'Ninja Jamm'.
Also, confirmed, is MIKE LADD. Mike has been described as 'one of contemporary hip-hop's great innovators'. He is that and so much more - a true poet, lyricist and academic, with a warm, versatile voice, impressive flow, but most importantly, a lot of ideas. Aside from his impressive, critically acclaimed body of solo work, Mike has worked with legends in the game such as Company Flow, Rob Sonic, Anti Pop Consortium, Cannibal Ox, and of course, Coldcut.
PLUS, we have UK Hip Hop pioneer/legend, Juice Aleem, solo artist and one third of the influential collective, 'New Flesh'. Juice was the first artist (with production from Luke Vibert) to release on Ninja Tune sub label, the now iconic, and Mercury Prize winning Big Dada, and continues his prolific career to this day.
To support and bring it all together, we have Raj Pannu (in Coldcut's words "absolutely the best DJ we have worked with")
Also confirmed for the night - live visuals from legendary local crew, NOVAK. Their work has included graphic design for film and TV, projection mapping installations, AV shows/tours for artists such as Magnetic Man, and their acclaimed '3D Disco' which has toured the World. Check out their work HERE and join their facebook page HERE.
The night is, in fact, a bit of a re-union (on Raj's birthday too!) as all the artists were part of an intensive World tour in 2006-08, so it should be a decent party!
