Bloc Presents – Shackleton + Appleblim

Bloc , Bow Friday April 19 2013 22:00 - 6:00
If there was one thing everyone agreed on after the Bloc Weekend fiasco last summer, which saw the electronic veterans go into administration after thousands of ticket holders were unable to enter the event, it was that the team would have to pull out something spectacular should they try and stage a return. Luckily, that's what they seem to have done with their new concept, a series of 10 one-off events showcasing some of the finest established and incoming underground talent. After three heavy-duty US lineups, the Bloc team dig deep into the UK underground, unearthing the dark delights of Shackleton and Appleblim, founders of the cult (now defunct) Skull Disco label and general bass behemoths. Both producers have some mean, twisted dubstep chops but are equally capable of laying down warehouse-rattling techno and moody house vibes as well, which will no doubt see Bloc Chapter Four go off in a big way.
