November 14th sees London’s iconic landmark, the London Eye, transformed into a giant rotating 30 club venue under the guidance of some of the UK’s most respected DJs and club nights from the past and present.
Red Bull’s Revolutions in Sound marks its 15th birthday by bringing together many of the nations seminal clubs together for one night of music. Each capsule being simultaneously streamed online for those who weren’t fortunate enough to quickly snap up one of the limited tickets to the event.
Representing Scotland is the Sub Club, established in 1987 and since having carved out it’s place in Scottish clubbing history, with the help of Harri and Domenic’s Subculture party since 94. However it’s perhaps most famous for JG Wilkes and JD Twitch’s Optimo, which ran until 2010. The Sub Club’s capsule contains one of the best line ups with Chicago house legend Derrick Carter manning the decks alongside Sub Club residents Harri & Domenic.
Other capsule’s catching my eye for this unique event are Newcastle’s ‘Shindig’ which hosts the genre spanning duo of Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman, better known as Dusky.
One third of Hessle Audio and consistently awesome Ben UFO goes back to back with Craig Richards in the Fabric vs FABRICLIVE capsule. Having recently seen Ben at the LuckyMe night at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s, this is definitely one stream I’ll be making sure to tune into during the course of the evening.
Viewers in the UK can check out any of the 30 capsules by visiting channel4.com on the evening, while the international audiences will be able to access the same content via the Red Bull Music Academy YouTube channel.
