Fri 16 Feb / Hit & Run 11th Birthday Pt 1 ft Om Unit, Swindle & Iglooghost @ Hidden / 11pm-4am
Om Unit’s development of both his own sound and that of his label Cosmic Bridge has been phenomenal over the past few years, which makes his set for this birthday party a must see. Iglooghost is as unique as they come and recently confused Boiler Room dancers no end, with his from-the-future sounds blowing minds like Marty’s guitar at the Enchantment Under The Sea Dance. Plastician, Commix, Sukh Knight, Black Josh, Metrodome and plenty more round out the night!
