Attention Londoners! What you doing Friday 26th September? Nothing? Get yourselves down Elephant & Castle way, there’s a night you do not want to be missing.
As part of a global tour covering the US, Japan, Mexico and Europe, Tim Sweeney and his merry men are celebrating 15 years of his Beats In Space radio show. Luckily for us, Tief are promoting the London leg at Corsica Studios and with the line-up they’ve put together, it’s going to be CLASS.
If you’re unfamiliar with BIS, way back in ‘99, then New York University freshman Tim Sweeney hit the airwaves of WNYU 89.1 with the radio show, Beats In Space. In the 15 years he’s been running it, he’s not once missed the Tuesday night slot, playing host to a whole range of guest mixes from the likes of Four Tet, Midland, Gui Boratto, KiNK and John Talabot.
Besides securing a legendary home for broadcasting eclectic, cutting edge music on a weekly basis, Sweeney set up a label for BIS in 2009, and having seen releases from Lauer, Paradis and Jee Day amongst others, he’s further developed the brand’s reputation for discovering top quality, new music.
We’ve seen the DFA Records-affiliated DJ play before many times and he never disappoints. Joining him next Friday is a stellar line-up consisting of Axel Boman, Tornado Wallace, Hunee going b2b with Mr Ties, and Tief stalwart Hessletime.
