For over five years now, James Conolly and Alex Sushon have been devoting their nights to filling dance floors, as L-Vis 1990 and Bok Bok . The new wonder boys of UK bass, they are responsible for Night Slugs, a two-headed project born in London in 2008 as an underground club, in venues East Village and The Egg, that’s hosted guests like Geeneus, Kode 9, Zomby, Ikonika, Crazy Cousinz, Joker, DJ Zinc, Terror Danjah and Drop the Lime, amongst others. This is how they like to define themselves, as the first and only club in London devoted to the best heavy bass music and global gutter house. Over the years the club has also become a label specializing in some of the latest mutations in the rave continuum.
Thanks to maxis by Mosca, Egyptrixx, Lil Silva, L-Vis 1990 and Girl Unit, in less than a year Night Slugs has become one of the labels of the moment, and the hottest name on the lips of the namedroppers. This is a right time, then, to announce the release of “Night Slugs Allstars Vol. 1”, the label’s first compilation, and a guide to their distinct and versatile sound. The release date is yet to be confirmed (we can only speculate it might be around the end of November), but at least we have the definite tracklist. The album will be available digitally and on CD.
