Chibuku Shake Shake: amazing line-up

Mark Ronson and others, Friday 15 April, The Masque

Chibuku Shake Shake: amazing line-up

FRIDAY 15 April sees the return of one of the city’s favourite sons in The Theatre – Mark Ronson. Well almost a favourite son. The dashing Southport-born, London-bred and later NYC raised producer, artist and DJ has enjoyed a fascinating career. He’s done everything from working with Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen and Adele to fronting Never Mind The Buzzcocks and presenting Mobos and – let’s not forget – he’s also gathered a Brit and three Grammys too.

Mark’s golden touch extends to his revered DJ sets, encompassing a range of styles across hip-hip, R&B, funk and pure party music, and he headlines this special Friday night Chibuku show. Liverpool’s local No Fakin’ boys are on hand to warm things up for Mark.

Up in The Loft, it’s a bone-shaking bass-warping session from start to finish. Arguably the most prolific producer within the drum and bass scene (with over 500 releases produced since 1991) headlines. Dillinja remains one of the scene leaders so it’s good to see him back.

One of the most successful producers in jungle music - with records on over ten labels - Dillinja is one of the few drum'n'bass artists who spends more time in the production studio than in clubs, crafting smash after smash.

A firm Chibuku fave, it’s a pleasure to welcome the Valve Sound System architect back to the club. He’s supported by another act loved by the Buku faithful – drum and bass star London Elektricity aka Tony Coleman. The first incarnation of London Elektricity was the duo of Tony and Chris Goss who also founded the legendary Hospital Records record label. The hugely anticipated 7th album Yikes!, drops at the end of April and this is an opportunity to catch this new material played live.


London Elektricity

Emalkay is one of Dubstep’s biggest producer, heading Caspa’s Dub Police label. Emalkay has a distinct take on the sound which has seen him become one of Dubstep’s most sought after acts. Big, bad and heavy describe the sound of one of the scene’s most complex artists; his album Eclipse is out in May, so expect to catch some of these sounds in The Loft. MCs Dynamite and Madrush lay down the vocals.

Ink sees local outfit Abandon Silence take over - and they will be living up to their name. L-Vis 1990 is an electro-bass producer from London whose style draws from drum'n'bass and grime, as well as fusing US style-clashes to include as Chicago house and Baltimore club. Super hot young Irish talent Sert One also stars – at just 21 he has already been busy, including remixing for Crystal Castles. Liverpool’s dubstep dudes Rich Furness and Horza complete this special Friday night Chibuku session.
