Rhyme & Slang LAUNCH w/ REDLIGHT + Dread MC & MELÉ @ Rhythm Factory 24th Sep

Rhyme and Slang was setup with one goal in mind, to breathe new life into the London bass scene. After years of meaningless stereotypes and invisible boundaries pinned down producers and DJs into playing one particular sound, the UK scene has broken the mould in recent years.

A new generation of dance music enthusiasts took to shaping a new legacy for the youth of today. We at Rhyme and Slang will be bringing together everything...... that is great about the UK movement right now, whilst at the same time being mindful of the time honored traditions of the past.
