MATTERLEY ESTATE – WINCHESTER
Chapter 8: Thursday 11TH – Sunday 14TH August 2016
Every revolution needs an HQ, and BoomTown Chapter 8’s uprising will be bubbling away in the brand new Sector 6! Located in the heart of the district is a power station commandeered by masked revolutionaries, leading their charge to a bass-heavy spectrum of garage, grime, bassline and dubstep.
UKG innovators So Solid Crew touch down with founding members Lisa Maffia, Romeo, Mega and Asher D, plus 2-step soldiers Sticky and Scott Garcia performing as Foundation alongside Lady Chann, and UK luminaries Ms. Dynamite, MJ Cole, DJ Zinc, Zed Bias & MC Trigga.
Delving into the deeper, darker sounds of bassline and jacking house are AC Slater, Deadbeat UK, Hybrid Theory, GotSome, Chris Lorenzo, Diemantle, Kry Wolf, Melé and DJ Barely Legal, while Grime is repped by scene big-hitters Newham Generals and Manchester’s Madam X.
Deep Medi brings a full squad of dubstep and dub reggae torchbearers to their takeover, with Mala, Gorgon Sound, Commodo, Gantz, Rider Shafique and Sun of Selah in control, and expect equally weighty vibes from the Boom Sound Takeover featuring Big.Bad.Soundsystem, Fleck, Gardna, Jinx in Dub, Kreed and Parly B.
Energy levels will be ramped up by Om Unit’s jungle-footwork deviations and Paul Woolford performing under his Special Request alias; rugged hardcore breakbeats guaranteed.
