EVENT: Lord Apex + Le Son at Birthdays – 28/03/2016


On Monday 28th March, South East London Electronic duo Le Son will be joining ethereal UK emcee Lord Apex for a FREE event at Dalston’s Birthdays. We’ve been bigging up Apex for a while now (after we caught on to his impressive Live From Los Santos EP, which takes GTA San Andreas as its muse), and are excited to catch him live. The event kicks off at 9pm – don’t miss out on this one.


Event: Night Lovell @ Birthdays 01/02/15

Following the success of his debut Concept Vague mixtape, Canadian rapper and producer Night Lovell is gracing Dalston’s Birthdays with his presence at the beginning of next month. Night’s foreboding and ominous sound has got him acclaim as one of the best in his sub-genre – don’t miss him for the agreeable price of a tenner. Tickets are still available here.

[Upcoming Event] THOSE THAT KNOW @ BIRTHDAYS W/ Vicktor Taiwò & Guests

[Hello readers! We were on holiday this past week (Bulgaria, if any of you care!), but we’re back to bring you through the business again.]

In 12 days, the dons over that Those That Know will be joining the very formidable forces of Vicktor TaiwòJesse James SolomonSutra and guest DJ The Masks for a special self-defined ‘360 AUDIOVISUAL EXPERIENCE’. Taking place on the 20th of the month at Dalston’s Birthdays, the event will also feature live 3D visual projections from Martin Grey, and live illustrations W/ Dom Hoskins and Jason Adenuga.


This is a very rare event, and for some maniacal and blessed reason tickets are currently going for £3! Leave your microwave dinner and Eastenders at home next Tuesday and come out and vibe; we’re hoping Jesse James will be dropping some of his new work from the EP he’s already apparently finished!
