JUAN CLASH SPECIAL w/ VIVEK vs QUEST, SKEPTICAL, HEBBE vs OPUS, CURTZ vs REACTION & RC1 SOUND
Juan Forté mark their first journey into the city of Nottingham with a clash extravaganza, bringing you the latest and greatest in the current soundsystem music scene.
For such a special occasion, we have secured the Marcus Garvey Ballroom and will be importing the fiercest sound the UK has to offer. As always, music is at the forefront of what we do with Juan and the Marcus Garvey Ballroom is steeped in soundsystem history, having hosted some of the globe’s leading rigs including Iration Steppas, Aba Shanti-i and Channel One amongst many many more…
Sound will be heavy, lighting will be minimal and the vibes will stay true to the original ethos of soundsystem music.
Leave your egos at the door and come skank…
V.I.V.E.K vs QUEST (2 hour Clash Set)
This is definitely a clash of the titans. Both artists are steeped in history and have been championing the sound as producers, DJs and label owners.
V.I.V.E.K has been instrumental in promoting soundsystem culture through his SYSTEM imprint over the last 6 years alongside some of the scene’s other leading labels such as Pinch’s Tectonic and Innamind’s Blacklist series. SYSTEM has undoubtedly been highly influential in keeping the original ethos of dubstep alive, through its proactive championing of underground producers and the curation of some of the best soundsystem line ups the globe has ever seen. System Sound for System People.
QUEST has been with dubstep since the very beginning, and has earned his position as a figurehead of the scene. Having released on all manner of labels from Deapoh’s Bare Dubs through to Innamind, in 2017 Quest launched his own Innerverse imprint, championing the sounds of up and coming talent. For those who have never witnessed Quest behind the 1s and 2s, all we can say is you’re in for a treat. One of the most technically skilled DJs out there, his seamless blends make it almost impossible to tell how many tunes are being juggled and where one track ends and where one begins.
SKEPTICAL (90 minute 140 vs 170 Set)
SKEPTICAL is one of the underground’s most versatile producers currently out there. Whether he’s making techy DNB or sub thumping 140, Skeptical’s tracks are bound together by unparalleled production quality. With his most recent release on Dbridge’s revered Exit imprint transcending genre boundaries we think it’s safe to say you can expect a journey that disregards BPMs - as Skeptical takes us through a bass laden adventure across the musical spectrum
HEBBE vs OPUS (90 minute Clash Set)
HEBBE and OPUS should need no introduction at this point in time. Both have ascended the ranks of dubstep in a remarkably short period of time and are both now rightfully considered staples of the underground scene. With releases on the underground’s most current labels spanning from Zha’s White Peach to J:Kenzo’s Artikal, these two are at the top of the 140 game right now. With a shared home on Sleeper’s Crucial Recordings, we are sure that this clash will secure its place in the annals of Juan.
REACTION vs CURTZ (Nottingham Clash Set)
Noone really needs to tell you guys that Nottingham is currently hosting some of the most exciting producers in the UK. For this reason, we have asked Reaction and Curtz to go head to head in a clash sure to highlight the raw talent currently harboured in this wonderful city.
️ REACTION - Cactus Dub: https://soundcloud.com/juanforteuk/jfp002-reaction-ep-premiere-sa008
️ CURTZ x Vandull - Set 1:
The evening’s bass-weight will be provided by the formidable RC1 Soundystem. Sound is at the forefront of what we do at Juan Forté, and the RC1 has more than delivered at previous dances. We collected some quotes from guests who witnessed the mighty system in action:
“Damn, I think my kidney is where my liver should be”
“So much weight… yet the sound is so crisp”
“My drink was on that table a second ago…”
“Where’s my bike?”
If you didn’t make it down last time, fear not for tickets are easy to come upon. Check out the videos below to see how much damage the RC1 can do
