DJs JON MORE & MATT BLACK are the founders of Ninja Tune Records. The iconic Ninja Tune label features a constantly growing roster of amazing electronic music from the melodically industrial drum n bass of Amin Tobin to the colorful funk of Mr Scruff and the masterfully textured grooves of Bonobo.
Drawing on this huge range of peers and influences, label founders Jon & Matt will bring their eclectic mash-up of hip-hop, breaks, electro and jazz for a very special DJ set.
RESIS’DANCE are a diverse group of women taking hold of the tech and decks, smashing the patriarchy and supporting under funded radical grassroots organisations. Resis’Dance will be bringing their infectious dancefloor sounds from house and garage to soca and afrobeats.
This event is organised by Campaign Against Arms Trade and the Stop The Arms Fair network as part of a weekend of music, workshops, speakers and discussions to grow resistance against London’s arms fair.
Get involved in the plans for the rest of the weekend by joining the It Starts Here! weekend event.
See you on the dancefloor!
