Undaground bizniz seen

Cool sounding party on the wrong side of the Atlantic for me but London massive take heed. This info from Larisa aka DJ Ripley who is appearing at the event as Mashit Crew with her partner Kid Kameleon and another person called DJ C:

press release as follows:

26th of June
the Mashit crew will be rockin' the last
night of their tour with The Bug, Saint Acid, and the
Heatwave DJs.

musicalbear presents...

the bug (rephlex, u.k.) vs. mashit djs (mashit,
+ saint acid (bangface) + heatwave djs

at a secret location in east london

on saturday 26 june, musicalbear will celebrate the
miserable excuse for a hippyfest that is glastonbury
by having our very own warehouse extravaganza
featuring yardcore pioneer the bug alongside hotly
tipped american ragga jungle crew mashit on the final
date of their european tour.

some solid backup will be provided by old school neo
rave specialist saint acid as well as the heatwave
crew bringing the original jamaican dancehall styles.
this all night party takes place at a very cool
warehouse venue accessible only by lift... there's no

saint acid (bangface, delta-9, ravetap) is the high
priest of london's burgeoning neo-rave scene, father
of the electro/hardcore/old skool/jungle juggernaught
that is bangface: "what the darkness are to rock,
bangface is to rave". [SR: ooer missus, that don't sound very enticing do it!] with a pedigree second to none, stretching back nearly twenty years from his early
days as member of saint alban's famed bmx crew, acid's
ongoing success is down to his ability to fuse 'back
in the day' old school action action with up to the
minute banging pisstakedness. rave heroes such as bong
ra, mike dred, ceephax acid crew and paul blackford
continue to request sets at his night.

heatwave djs - xiquet, masta g and lexy - will be
providing the heavy dancehall vibes which have seen
them play all over london and the rest of the country
in the past year with residencies in venues like 333
and 93 feet east and guest appearances just about
everywhere. playing sets that embrace everything from
dancehall classics to hardcore bashment and up to the
minute exclusive remixes, they'll be warming the party
up with their friendly, hotstepping dancefloor styles.

the party will take place at a warehouse in bethnal
green, east london, not far from tube/rail/bus links.
the capacity is only a little over 200 so come early
to avoid disappointment. email party@musicalbear.com
for the address. entry will be a very reasonable £5
all night. the party will run from ten till six in the
morning. there is a reasonably priced bar at the
