Tomorrow night at Shelter, and Saturday night at Dada Beijing, we are very excited to present one of the most exciting talents to come out of London in the last few years, VISIONIST! Below is a bit more info on Visionist and also our second special guest for the night, PUZZLE, but first off check out this deadly mix of 100% own productions he did for Dusk & Blackdown’s Rinse show.
South London based producer Visionist came up in uk scene in 2011 after gaining support from DJ Oneman with tunes such as ‘Come In’ & ‘Mr.67’. Over the last couple of years Visionist made serious waves and has since seen release on Dusk & Blackdown’s Keysound Recordings, Desto’s Signal Life and 92 Points. His music takes influence from many genres but is deeply rooted in UK Grime, where he began, and all with a dark, fresh twist of his own.
With the track ‘Something Old, Something New’ being one of the highlights on Kode9’s recent Rinse Mix CD, and his new self released EP ‘Crying Angels’, a selection of remixes of classic Grime tracks plus the astonishing new cut ‘Your Eyes Were Green’, Visionist is quickly establishing a big name for himself and stands out among his peers. The next few months will see a 4 track EP released on Berlin’s Leisure System, as well as an EP for Rashad and Spinn’s Lit City!
But thats not all! Joining Visionist, as a special treat, we also have the return of Leisure System’s Puzzle!
With over 10 years experience of production and dj’ing, Puzzle is resident at the mighty Leisure System night at Berlin super club Berghain, and also co-runs the Leisure System record label. Having played some of the biggest clubs and festivals around, Sonar, Dimensions, Arma 17, RedBull Music Academy, Nitsa, XOYO, Shelter, Dada, Puzzle always brings a playful mix of genres to the dance floor while relentlessly throwing down bass heavy bangers. Leisure System records are just about to release an EP from Visionist, as well as the much anticipated new material from Dopplereffekt, so we are very excited to see what he has in store for us this time around!
