THE TUBE PRESENTS: BEN UFO (4 HR SET) & CEDRIC MAISON //

We can’t wait for SATURDAY 30TH JULY. It’s BEN UFO‘s time to shine at THE TUBE.

Co-founder of the London-based HESSLE AUDIO, alongside Ramadanman and Pangea in 2007, Ben is one of the select few DJ’s in the UK who have managed to make a name for themselves based solely on their skills as a DJ, without entering the world of production. It follows then, that he’s good. Very good!
In terms of selection, he’s one of the finest out there, seamlessly and brilliantly mixing a variety of sounds from times past and present: his sets usually comprise of the freshest Funky, Garage and 2-Step, combined with a choice assortment of classic Dubstep, House and Techno. He’s been blowing minds on the club scene for a while now; his recognition has been much fought for, and is much deserved.

And there’s something else: we’re honored (and incredibly excited – and even just a little bit smug) to say that Ben will be playing a very special, marathon 4 hour set at The Tube, giving us a wicked opportunity to make the most of his impeccable skills and see a first-class DJ in his element – that is, shredding the club to pieces and getting you bubblin’ on the floor…

Check out this pretty freakin’ brilliant mix he did for Boiler Room, below. He goes straight in with a smooth as butter intro that drops into an energized, booty-based, body-popping musical journey. Yeah! Just prepare yourselves to see this chief DJ at the top of his game – definitely not to be missed!

Joining Ben will be CEDRIC MAISON, co-founder of the HYPERCOLOUR imprint – check out their website HERE – who will get the night rolling in full force with his fiercely refined taste in underground Techno and House. As stated on the WE LOVE SPACE website: “Maison’s Djing style is as forward thinking as it is timeless, a fact which has seen him snapped up as a resident at Steve Lawler’s VIVa parties, as well as receiving praise from just about every “big name” DJ he plays with.”

As always on a Saturday, we’ll be offering FREE ENTRY and 2-4-1 COCKTAILS before midnight! It’s probably worth getting down early for this one…

Scootch over to the Facebook Event Page HERE for more info – and tune into the Hessle Audio radio show on RINSE FM, from 11pm – 1am, on the first and third Thursdays of each month.

WELL ROUNDED 005: THIS SATURDAY //

It’s gonna be big, it’s gonna go down… THE TUBE keeps things rolling for its second weekend with a showcase from Well Rounded Records, this Saturday 19th March.

Headlining the night will be C.R.S.T, blending a hype and heavy mix of Garage, House and Funky; these four producers from South Wales are creating tidal waves in the music world and have shared the stage with big names such as Redlight, Tempa T, Rusko and Julio Bashmore to name but a few.

Lock in to this wicked mix C.R.S.T did recently for Rinse FM:

Joining C.R.S.T will be London-based producer JAMES FOX. His DJ sets sweep across a range of house, bass-driven rhythms and UK flavors, and he mixes these different elements – as well as breaking and reforming them – to create an other-worldly musical landscape, unrestricted by genre. With full support from producers such as Jackmaster and Brackles, he is emerging onto the scene with vigor and is definitely one to watch. Fox’s latest offering is about to drop on Well Rounded’s own label Housing Project… very smooth indeed:

Donga & Blake, plus Dubpressure founder Unlikely, will also be playing on the night.
