The Big Chill Presents returns for its first event of 2011 launching a brand new monthly residency from our favorite on-demand radio platform Mixcloud who kick things off with a very special Big Chill Presents event titled History Of Hip-Hop. Headed up by a very special guest DJ from Ninja Tune, Mixcloud have assembled a task-force of killer DJs to deliver past, present and future sets from one of the most important musical genres of the 20th Century!
We can’t give too much away about the very special headliner due to his impending album release but this Latin Grammy Award-nominee, sometime radio presenter who spends his time between Berlin and New York, all we can say is it’s going to be very, very big.
The rest of the event sees an assembly of formidable talent dropping sets from their favourite era of Hip Hop headed up by DJ MK (Kiss FM) who drops into deliver a 90’s Golden Era set, UK DMC winner (2004) and Fabric Resident DJ Blakey who drops ‘00’s Club Bangers, Rinse FM’s Alexander Nut who represents the Nuskool with a Future Of Hip Hop set. Keeping the pressure up Suspect Package’s CEO Disorda, one of the most important supporters of the scene who will lay down a full history of UK Hip Hop set from South London collective Breakin’ Bread deliver a 70’s B-Boy Breaks set and finally Chris Read (Substance) wraps things up with an 80’s Electro Funk set, add to this live break dancing from award-winning crew Born To Rock and we’re set for a night of pure Hip-Hop gold.
Since launching just over a year ago, Mixcloud have been excited and honored by how many incredible, talented DJs have got involved on the site – contributing a wide array of high quality and creative content. Digging through the site, they constantly come across Cloudcasts that are crafted with love and affection – DJs digging for interesting, obscure tracks and stringing them together in ever more interesting ways.
This led to the inspiration for their new monthly residency and we're excited to have them kicking things off at Big Chill House! Expect some great talent from the site as well as a community of listeners and fans to connect in the real world – bringing the magic of Mixcloud to life!
