*** CELEBRATING THE RELEASE OF
“SHADES & MONSTERS: FDM CLASSICS”
OUT 21 JULY via Night Slugs X Fade to Mind ***
Radar Radio and Night Slugs join forces to bring Brooklyn’s HITMAKERCHINX to the UK for his first ever show in Europe. On 22nd July we take over new North London venue Five Miles for a party we’ve been looking forward to for what feels like forever –
Chinx is finally coming to London. The originator of Flex Dance Music (FDM), Hitmakerchinx is a producer and dancer who joins us fresh off the back of touring with Rihanna on the ANTI tour, where he danced on stage to his own edit of ‘Give It To Me’. He’s also remixed ‘Work’, danced in Jidenna’s ‘Classic Man’ visual and you’ll find him on official remix duty for Madonna. Get to know FDM: the raw, chopped up dancehall sound; dark, bass heavy and inspired by flexing, the Brooklyn born dance style.
A sound engineered for the club, you’ll find Bok Bok mixes of late peppered with Hitmakerchinx’s productions. We’ve very happy to present the Night Slugs bossman and the pioneer of FDM on the same line up.
Bimonthly Radar residents BBC AZN Network complete the bill with a cocktail of grime, Bollywood, bashment and everything in between. See you in the dance.
