Fri 6 Mar | Roska, Ill Blu & Funkystepz | The Roadhouse
BPM celebrate five years strong in the game with one of their biggest and best line-ups to date. Headlining this UK Funky special is Roska, who is probably the biggest name to emerge from the scene, but the heads will be more excited by the presence of both Ill Blu and Funkystepz, who are responsible for some of the most innovative music to come from the UK underground in years and years. As always, the BPM residents will be setting the scene from early.

Fri 6 Mar | Chow Down x Boxed | Soup Kitchen
Boxed has been one of the most hyped club nights to come out of London in a while, leading the way for a new school of instrumental, club-friendly grime. Mr Mitch, Oil Gang and Slackk have all been extremely influential on the scene in their own way, and they’ll be joined by Chow Down’s Finn and Fallow, who are carving their own path very nicely indeed.

Sat 7 Mar | Oxide & Neutrino | Antwerp Mansion
One for the garage heads here, as Ghosts of Garage and Rum & Bass offer up a throwback special in the form of Oxide & Neutrino, of Bound 4 Da Reload fame. Support comes in the able shape of Chimpo, Rich Reason and the Rum & Bass residents – with T-Man holding down mic duties for the night. Tickets are going quickly, so it’s advised to get a move on with this one!

Sat 7 Mar | Keep It Unreal | Band On The Wall
Everyone’s favourite non-mobile disco is back for another instalment this month at Band On The Wall. With a strict policy of keeping phones and cameras off the dancefloor, the focus is kept on Mr Scruff’s extremely enviable record collection and selection skills. And with Band’s excellent soundsystem, why would you want to pay attention to anything else? Always a great night, this one’s highly recommended.
Advance tickets are sold out, but there’s a limited amount available on the door. More info at

Sun 8 Mar | Collie Buddz | Manchester Academy
This is a little Sunday evening treat for reggae fans, as Collie Buddz takes to the Academy stage. Probably most famous for his 2007 anthem Come Around, Buddz comes with a stellar back catalogue, with last year’s output including a collaboration with hip-hop artists Riff Raff and Snoop Dogg.
