After an inaugural party to remember at London’s XOYO in October, Born Electric returns to the capital for an event bursting at the seams with house music talent. Migrating south of the Thames, the record label will take over the aptly titled Brixton Electric on Saturday 22nd December. The imprint is the brainchild of dance music luminary James Zabiela, who after years of success as a DJ and producer, decided it was time to give a little back to the community. The label will be as eclectic in its featured artists as in its sound, with Zabiela looking to purvey as broad and vibrant a cross-section of his electronic tastes as possible.
The event on the 22nd, the first where Zabiela has been able to flex his curating muscles, will convey just how varied his musical interests are. Joining him will be seasoned tech-housers DJ T and Glimpse, UK bass doyen Pangaea and beat-scape whizzkid Gang Colours, who’ll be performing a a rare DJ set. The party will also feature a very special appearance from old-skool techno duo The Advent, who have recently revived their two decade old live show. Regardless of whether you count yourself as a James Zabiela fan or not, there should be plenty on offer in Brixton that night to satisfy even the most refined musical predilections.
To celebrate the first in what will undoubtedly be a long line of Born Electric showcases, MEOKO have teamed up with the imprint to offer one lucky punter the chance to win 2 x VIP Guestlist passes to the event, plus a vinyl copy of BE001. All you have to do is tell us:
