Saturday 14th April – Sub-Culture present: Tes La Rok
Line Up: Tes La Rok, Drunk Monk, Maze, dji, Steven Lorenz, ChaCha, Didje, Ubec, George Wyndham
After the sheer devastation caused by The Bug and Daddy Freddy last month, we are following up with another heavyweight guest of honor – TES LA ROK!
Tes La Rok is a DJ and music producer from Helsinki, Finland. He was one of the first international names to break through onto the dubstep scene, and has been featured on a variety of albums such as Soul Jazz’ Steppa’s Delight, Dubstep Allstars 5, Mary-Anne Hobbs’ Evangeline and Mixmag 25 Year Anniversary Mix by Laurent Garnier. He is also the owner of Noppa Recordings, a dubstep label featuring some of the most innovative artists from around the world.
For the past decade, Tes La Rok has been one of the pioneers in Helsinki undergound culture, running dances such as Slam It, Soulfuel, Back 2 Bass and Sub, as well as his show on basso radio along Sub-Culture favorite Desto.
His remix of Uncle Sam’s Round The World Girls on Argon Records in 2007 quickly achieved anthem status, being played in clubs everywhere and winning best 12” in the dubstepforum awards. With his new project, Trusta, about to launch on Loefah’s Swamp81 label, Tes’ sound continues to morph and change as the ever-evolving bass scene changes with him. One for the real heads!
