Boxed on Tour
Bristol- 11th November
Leeds- 12th November
Since its first night in March 2013, Boxed has helped cultivate a generation of instrumental grime. Inspired by the raw talent coming through in 2012 and driven by the lack of club spaces to play it in, Slackk, Mr. Mitch, Oil Gang and Logosâ€™s clubnight has hosted rooms at Fabric, Plastic People, The Troxy and Birthdays, and is set to embark on its first tour later this year. Some of electronic musicâ€™s most crucial producers - Mumdance, Finn, Murlo, JT the Goon, Yamaneko and many more - have found a second home of sorts in Boxed, and the residents were amongst the first people championing their music.
People have talked about â€œthe Boxed soundâ€, but key to Boxedâ€™s success is the range of sounds found at the club night: youâ€™re as likely to hear peak-time anthems by Trends and Spooky as you are mediative experiments by Sharp Veins. For the first 12â€ on the Boxed label, they showcase the breadth of styles that the night represents. Slackk and Dullah Beatsâ€™ contemplative â€˜Forest Walkâ€™ is the polar opposite of Lloyd SBâ€™s stripped back banger â€˜X Outâ€™, while Trendsâ€™ monstrous â€˜Old Skool 2â€™ refix seems to share little join common with Spokesâ€™ â€˜Tragedy in the Jasmine Gardenâ€™. But all have been road-tested at Boxed and become crowd favourites - at both the club night and on this release, they make perfect sense together.
