For 2012, Tiger Beer, in association with Black Atlantic, introduces ’Hidden Depths’ - a series of club and live events that explore a different side of some of the UK’s most innovative record labels.
The series of shows will blend live and club performances across the capital to provide each label the chance to explore the influences that informed their conception, present their current leading lights and offer a glimpse into their future musical movements. Each night will be curated by the labels as they look to reveal their hidden depths.
The series will launch at fabric on Wednesday 16th May with a takeover of Room 1 by the seminal London based label Ninja Tune, with a showcase of burgeoning new talent. The spectrum of imprints and artists they are involved with will be showcased, with the Ninja label itself taking centre stage. Sister labels Big Dada Records (Wiley, Roots Manuva) and Brainfeeder (Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer) will also be represented to provide the audience with a night that delves into the depths of the Ninja Tune label.
Bridging the gap between the three camps and pulling together their mutant strains in fabric’s main room, the show includes a rare performance from Thundercat in what will be only be the second time he has played in the UK and his first headline show on these shores. Thundercat will be backed by the astonishing talents of Ninja affiliated artist Floating Points and new signing Slugabed, with Offshore representing on behalf of Big Dada.
The Hidden Depths night with Ninja Tune will be the perfect expression of the labels dedication to nurturing creative talent free of commercial restraints. This approach was born 20 years ago by founders Coldcut (Matt Black and Jonathon More) and still exists today as Ninja Tunes continues to evolve offering a physical home to the even more left of centre Big Dada and assisting LA based label du jour Brainfeeder.
