Round 4, are you ready? We're back at the Wee Red Bar bringing some of the freshest local talent and the hardest rhythms.
After showcasing 13 hours of music from acclaimed Scottish DJs at the Fringe-exclusive bar and DIY space, Skylight, Convolve is back to bring the heat. This night time party slot at the Wee Red will be dense with the convolving beats and rhythms of contemporary dance musics, all selected by acclaimed Scottish DJs. We are pushing onwards in our mission to give Edinburgh a cultural / clubbing offering that it genuinely needs, and that will mean visiting all manner of upcoming rhythm musics from dancehall, to hard drum, to Afrobeats, gqom, and beyond.
Sarra Wild, Convolve #4's headline act runs OH141 parties in Glasgow and safe to say there is nowhere they are unwilling to go musically. Widely known as a top-notch party organiser, Sarra is also a killer DJ, as we gladly discovered at the amazing Counterflows festival where she made us sweat for two hours. Covering everything from electro to Jersey club and bassline and previously featuring at Pollyanna and Rhythm Machine, we are proud and excited to be able to bring this inspiring promoter and boundless DJ to a Convolve audience. Get MOVING people!
Akumu is a regular feature at Glasgow's Underworld parties. The party's motto? «Hard Drum Will Never Die.» We finally caught her through at the FUSE nights run by Glasgow visual artists VAJ.Power. Submerging dizzyingly diverse drumlines in synthwork as dark as the underground, Akumu stimulates both the body and the mind. Experimenting with dance music in a way that perhaps none of Convolve's previous bookings have, we are certain that people need to hear this ambitious Glasgow-based DJ.
Ira Osborne lit up our party at Skylight Bar. It was a no-brainer to ask him back for all of the good folks that came through and to give grace to the sorry folks that missed it. He's said yes >>>. Ira Osbourne is the newest recruit at Rubadub and puts his musical knowledge to the right cause: bestowing hard drum with the rep, and indeed the selector, that it needs. Ira also runs Bruk Out parties featuring his own Bass Warrior Soundsystem and is a personal friend of our regular MC Ista Lion of Bongo's Messenger Soundsystem. There are no excuses for missing the legend that kept our 1 AM Skylight slot popping until lights-up at 3.
Finally, our resident, Outer Measure, has, believe it or not, failed to exhaust his music library, even after an incredible 8 hour marathon of tracklisting at Convolve #3. You know what that means — he feels he hasn't yet done enough to share the vibe with Convolve crowds. His will be a set which can confuse, compel, and most importantly convolve the crowd.
As ever, Convolve aims to be a melting pot, a safe space, an exploration, and an opportunity to let loose and be yourself. Respective the vibe. Respect each other.
