Swivel - London's future garage night

The UK's resurgent UKG/two-step/future garage movement is getting another shot in the arm with the arrival of London's first true future garage night - Swivel. Like our own more nostalgia-tinged night Days Like That parties, Swivel will take place in Dalston's den of rave the Russian Bar and begins its journey on Sunday 30th May with a line-up that will get heads from all ends absolutely hype. Two-step futurist Spatial headlines alongside Maddness from the legendary mid-'90s outfit KMA Productions - an act that straddled the lines of soulful two-step, deep jungle and dubby 'ardkor like no other in history.

Essentially, though, Swivel is a label night for Whistla's definitive future garage label LS2 Recordings - a label that has been taking the best elements of classic UKG and pushing them into the future they never quite realised first time round. Interested to kknow more? Well check out this introduction to future garage mix by the man Whistla himself. Or read this seriously indepth interview with Whistla by the legendary blogger, journalist and artist Blackdown here. Or get yourself down to Swivel itself on 30th May where Whistla will also be playing alongside Littlefoot b2b Erra, M2J and Forty Four.
