Bristol’s [Dissident] Soundsystem will be taking on Cambridge’s Life4Land Soundsystem in a jungle, breakcore & DnB soundclash of monstrous proportions!

2 Rigs, one winner, you decide!

Upstairs:Ruffnek Diskotek (Dubstep, Ragga, Bass Pressure)

Bass Clef (Blank Tapes)
Live set from the artist formerly known as RLF. Genius dubstep & electronics with live Trombone and Theramin (sic)!

Monkey Steak (Death$ucker / Punch Drunk)
Live set from Ruffnek favourites pumping out mangled grime, warped dubstep & skewed ragga

Dub Boy vs Midas (Ruffnek Diskotek / P.R.A.N.K)
Riddim assault from two of Bristol's dancehall heavyweights.

Kymatik (Noir / Byte)
Exclusive sludge set mashing up dubstep, breaks, techno, grime & more!

Brother Wetlands vs Star Delta (Boggle / Ruffnek Diskotek)
Bass, electronics and everything inbetween.


Yeah, I could well be up for this. Obviously I'm more attracted to what's happening upstairs. If you've yet to check Bass Clef live, you need to get down there and witness Ralf in action, because it's fucking divine. Watch out for Neil Kymatik and his 'sludge' sound, too - hectic!

Might try and check what's happening in the main arena too...get mi lickle dose of breakcore tomfoolery for the year.
