As we roll ever nearer to Abandon Silence 03 featuring Mount Kimbie LIVE, Abandon Silence was invited very kindly to host a room at Chibuku last Saturday. We brought along Ramadanman, Horza, Kidheader and Grandav, and the rest is history. It was a hugely successful night, with our room competing avidly against the might of Hospital Records that was taking over the other 2 rooms in the building.
Abandon Silence would like to thank Lewis, Sean and Rich at Chibuku for giving us the opportunity to help with the hosting of the biggest club night in the North of England.
One of the enduring memories of the night came when Ramadanman pulled up this track, "Wut" by Girl Unit, twice. It had the crowd going wild! We cannot wait for this to be released on the great Night Slugs label in a couple of weeks time, we'll be copping it instantly. Sadly we can only give you YouTube quality for the time being, and it really doesn't do it justice, so just buy it when it comes out!
As a rumour starter, we have some plans for future Abandon Silence's that will hopefully include this incredibly talented producer...
