TOKYO WORLD 2015 – Mini Review

Saturday the 26th September saw the first year of the newly named ‘Tokyo World’, now in it’s third year as a festival after evolving on from it’s Tokyo Dub club nights at Bristol’s iconic club Motion. What seemed like the best part of between 15,000 & 20,000 people descended on Eastville park for the annual bass music event, with some of the city’s most experienced promoters hosting stages for their respective genres & scenes.

I live directly opposite Eastville Park and we left not long after we began to hear the thud of bass rattling our windows. We arrived just after 1pm to practically no queue whatsoever which was pleasing, as i had expected for there to be a lot of people there already. Upon entry we hit the bar straight away and noticed small pockets of crowds accumulating at each of the 6 stages. The main stage was impressive to say the least, it was in the shape of what appeared to be a huge volcano with an opening for the stage at the bottom.

Our first destination stage-wise was the Mutiny stage; we were greeted by the sounds of Dutch D&B produder Fre4knc, we met some friends and socialised for the next hour or so and before i knew it the site had began to fill up considerably. Next up for our listening pleasure at the Muntiny Stage was Benny Page – by this point the soundsystem had been cranked right up and vibes were flying all over the place.

We took a wander around the site to check out what else was on offer, passing multiple tasty-looking food stands and healthy queues at the bars. The Blast stage, which was situated in the upper left corner of the site was a very industrial looking affair – we would return here later. After scouting the site for premium vibes, we decided upon hitting Mutiny again for another dose of Drum & Bass – obviously – with the Bristol D&B boss-dog Break rolling out some fresh tunes from his forthcoming album.

We spotted one of our favourite artists David Rodigan doing his usual self hosted set, so decided to take a look at what he had to offer. After plenty more drinks and a few laps of the site it became apparent that this event was a total sell out – the whole site was absolutely rammed with party goers and every stage was going off.

Fast forward to night time and the event takes on a new dimension as pyrotechnics are visibly spewing out vertical flames from the top of the main stage volcano to a crowd of thousands of people. I can’t quite believe this epic event is opposite my house, but i can tell you that i’m extremely appreciative of my discounted resident ticket!

I had to leave early as i had a DJ set at another venue in Bristol at 10pm, but i’m assured that the event came to an epic conclusion. Haven’t heard a bad word said about this year’s Tokyo World and i would highly recommend it to bass music lovers!

Salaryman, Dope Tingz (Dope Ammo & Run Tingz Cru), Creatures and TerraHawk remix ‘Calm B4 The Storm’

This week we will be uploading our next EP which has been eagerly awaited. The ‘Calm B4 The Storm’ single from TerraHawk has 4 heavyweight remixes.

There is a remix from our French D&B soldier, Salaryman, who has recently had tracks selected for RAM Miami and 15 years of Technique Recordings.

Dope Tingz (which is a combo of the legendary Dope Ammo and Run Tingz Cru) have put their all out dancefloor touch to the track, firmly stamping down the sound for the up front D&B ravers.

Infidelity’s new signing, Creatures, have taken on the track and absolutely shown without a shadow of a doubt, what they are capable of. This darker, rolling track has had us excited for a while and we can’t even begin to say what we have in store for these guys.

Last but not least, TerraHawk went back in on the track and flipped it into a dark steaming VIP mix! You may have heard previews of these tracks on the Infidelity Records Show, Ujima 98FM.

If you are on the promo list, you will be receiving the tracks this week. If your not on the promo list, and you think you should be, email us info@infidelityrecords.co.uk

Release date will be confirmed this week when clips go up onto our soundcloud page.

There is a small clip of TerraHawks VIP mix on their official releases playlist if you want a quick listen ……
