An evening of sets of minimal, hip-hop and tresillo Latin rhythms from Endgame, Gang Fatale and Kamixlo.
Endgame is part of the Bala Club collective alongside Blaze Kidd, Uli-K and Kamixlo. His work picks rhythmic threads through disparate club influences, and is showcased regularly on his bi-weekly show on NTS, Precious Metals. Endgame’s productions utilise a militant sound palette, taking the melodic ennui of grime at its most melancholy, marrying it with party-ready dancehall and hip-hop. His debut EP was picked up earlier this year by Portugal-based label Golden Mist, and there’s already another on the way for 2015.
Neana and Riz Fresco hail from the Gang Fatale crew, who dedicate their time to stirring up dance floors over with pure, club-focused, rhythmic minimalism. It’s a cultured sound, where US ballroom house meets Jersey and B’more club, distorted through the grimey lens of UK soundsystem culture. Gang Fatale showcase the best of their efforts each month with a slot on NTS Radio, and all their releases are available through bandcamp.
Brixton-based Kamixlo hails from Chile, but has been smashing parties across London for the past few years. Alongside his prolific DJing schedule, where he’s been spearheading nights like Tropical Waste and Endless, his productions have been pricking ears and turning heads. Genre-dismantling tracks like Contigo and Mata Lo pay homage to club music from across the globe, owing as much to the tresillo rhythms of Latin America as they do to DJ Mustard’s innovations in the West Coast ratchet sound. With a debut EP on the way, Kamixlo can only be on the up.
The ICA partners with Frieze Art Fair and K11 Art Foundation to host London’s first official Frieze ICA Bar. Taking place over a five-day period, special guests host an evening of music and DJs in collaboration with NTS Radio. The bar is open 7.30pm - 1am every day.
During the Frieze ICA Bar programme, entry to the ICA will be free after 6pm. From 11am – 6pm the standard £1 Day Membership will be charged.
