Baobinga Belfast 25/6/11
Bassline badman Baobinga bounces into Belfast! (I should be writing headlines for the Sun)
Launching his new album featuring, well, just about _everybody_ in forward-thinking bass music at the moment so we’re hosting a shindig featuring Baobinga, Nez, MassyFuture, J. King and of course myself (more liveset action).

18/6/11 9PM onwards, £3 before 10:30 £7 after…so get there EARLY!!!
The Menagerie, 130 University Street, BT7 1HH

After the storming gig that was the All City Records crew, Pressure are back with 2 exclusive livesets for the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.
Kab Driver AKA Dre Krabski is a Serbian robot from the 40’s who makes dance music. His creator died in the US in 72 during a science convention and Dre managed to escape and hide under the supervision of the funk band Phunkatropics. He has played uncredited due to his robotic nature, on numerous funk, R&B and pop records, throughout the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s but has now settled in the UK where he produces electronic music in the privacy of his own lab.
Some killer releases on Acroplane (as Filaria), Airflex Labs and some HOTNESS in a collab with Boxcutter on Planet Mu.

2BiT probably doesn’t need much of introduction (as you’re already here) but expect LOADS of new bass business…y’all heard it here first 😉

Pressure are proud to present Plan B & Duplexhelix (Live set) + Noize Thievery (EP Launch). We’re going all hip hop for this one!!

Plan B : Homespun / Antidote Portrush resident aka dj HamsterStyles aka DaddyLongLegs aka 6amAtlanticWallClimber.
(to be clear, this is not the bloke with the guitar from London…)

…Duplexhelix : Mexican expatriate, illegal California resident and recent Northern Ireland transplant. duplexhelix brings the Noise (literally) to the N&B and to the N-Hop. Added the swagger to the wonk for that Swonk. After dabbling many years as a Classical concert soloist, Jazz side-man, experimental instrumentalist, wedding band player, and diletante academic, he has finally embraced the four-on-the-floor and gave it the Swonk treatment.
