2011 has been an immense year for Cable, and our Drum & Bass nights have been a huge part of that. From Friction’s roadblock Shogun Audio nights to Goldie’s legendary Metalheadz parties, from the innovative sounds of A Bunch of Cuts to Fabio’s liquid midweeker Swerve – the walls of the club have rung with blistering beats and powerful basslines all year round. So it seemed only fitting that our last party of 2011 should be a Drum & Bass marathon taking in all three rooms and rocking the London Bridge railway arches to the max.
The team behind Faster have long been involved in running killer D&B parties – including AWOL, World Dance, and the legendary Breakin Science nights. Faster was born in 2006, the initial concept being a night that began with Dubstep and gradually built the tempo up to Drum & Bass. Five years ago, however, Dubstep hadn’t yet captivated clubland the way it has now – and the night morphed into what was simply an awesome Drum & Bass rave with Zinc and Friction at the helm – selling out major venues across London every time.
December 31st heralds the return of Faster to London clubland – and as far as relaunches go, you couldn’t have asked for a heavier line up. Friction heads up the bill in the Main Room – and with the Cable DJ booth a second home for him, you can expect nothing less than a killer set from the Shogun head honcho. He’ll be joined by two of his fellow label mates Rockwell, fast becoming one of the scene’s most distinctive and sought-after producers, and Spectrasoul – whose ability to combine soulful melodies with sordid bass have made them a firm favourite at Cable. Completing the Main Room line up are Hospital Records stalwart Cyantific, Ram Records’ Wilkinson and Basher, plus original jungalist Randall,. With a nod to Faster’s original concept, the awesome Youngsta will be dropping a Dubstep set in the main room.
No Drum & Bass line up worth its salt would be complete without representation from A Bunch of Cuts - consistently one of the most innovative DJ collectives out there With this in mind, heading up The Red Room are Marcus Intalex and D-Bridge, who have been killing it this year both on the dancefloor and in the studio – Marcus with the release of his 21 LP on Soul:r, and D-Bridge with releases on Exit, Autonomic and Disfigured Dubz. Break, Total Science, Bailey and Ulterior Motive – who have all rocked the Cable dancefloor for Metalheadz – complete Room Two. Finally, the action in the Main Bar sees Geeneus, Last Japan, Hermit (‘88 – ‘92 Set), We’re Not Cool and DJ Wonder (‘00 – ‘06 Grime & Garage Set) providing some alternative sounds.
So there you have it - a NYE party so heavy we may need to reinforce the Cable dancefloor! We couldn’t think of a better way to see out an amazing year of clubbing. See you down the front!
