On 29th March Sub Focus gave London a very special treat to kick off Easter weekend with a bang. The chart topping producer invited an enticing number of well respected guests including the world renown Jauz, bassline king Darkzy and leading drum and bass DJs Turno and Dimension. Alongside this, Sub Focus showcased his brand new stage setup and visuals, giving his set an exciting edge.
Setting the tone for the night was Darkzy, who performed plenty of unreleased music and gave us a taste of what’s to come this year in the UK bassline scene. The crowd reacted extremely well to Darkzy’s remixes too as revelers sang along to his take on Florence and The Machine’s ‘You’ve Got The Love.’
Next up was Dimension who injected vast amounts of energy into the Brixton crowd as he played out his high tempo music which was complimented by an MC who made sure the crowd never stopped moving throughout the hour set.
Jauz followed after Dimension and dived straight into his set as he came on stage to his hit ‘Rock The Party’. The international DJ’s set was full of many different energetic styles and genres as he bounced from dubstep to drum and bass, classic anthems to IDs from his unreleased debut album. Despite having only an hour set, Jauz brought his very own special guests, the first being British DJ Holy Goof, who had his remix of Drake’s ‘God’s Plan’ played by Jauz on the mainstage at the legendary Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Jauz repeated this moment again in, except this time he gave Holy Goof the opportunity to showcase it at a packed out o2 Academy Brixton as well as playing their new collaboration. The other special guest Jauz invited was Example, who came out and performed their new collaboration ‘In The Zone.’
Before Sub Focus came on, there was around a half an hour interval which helped build anticipation towards the set. When Sub Focus took to the stage, he made an immediate impact as the lights went down and his new visuals shone out to the crowd. The DJ played a countless number of his timeless classics, including ‘Rock It’, ‘Endorphins’ and sing-along anthem ‘Tidal Wave’. The crowd proved why he was the headline act as every hit performed by Sub Focus was sung by the crowd, giving the DJ an extremely loud reception.
Last but not least was Turno, who gave the late night ravers exactly what they wanted as they fed off his high energy music in the last couple of hours of the night. The DJ saw how well the crowd reacted to his music and continued to raise the energy levels throughout the set, ending the night with a bang.
