The Street Sounds UK Fresh Reunion is a celebration of Hip Hop/Electro music and street culture featuring live artist performances by NEWCLEUS, CAPTAIN ROCK, THE B BOYS feat. GRANDMIXER D.ST and ARTHUR BAKER!  For those who remember the early days of Electro/Hip Hop this will be one of the most eagerly awaited events in London for many many years.  This is where Hip Hop began!  Many journalists and music historians have credited the iconic Street Sounds record label and the classic ‘Electro’ series as introducing the Electro/Hip Hop genre to the mainstream UK population as well as launching numerous artists.

After almost 12 months of planning, this will be a night to remember; in the main room will be Hip Hop/Electro and the artist performances.  Between the performances we will have a great line up of DJs including DJ MIRAGE spinning Electro, Hip Hop & R&B; from the original series right up to today’s Nu Electro series.  The MC for the evening will be BBC’s DAVE PEARCE.  There will also be B-Boy battles, performances and a few other surprises!

Upstairs in the balcony bar there will be a selection of DJs headlined by GREG EDWARDS playing various other Street Sounds genres from classic ‘Anthems’, ‘Rare Grooves’ to ‘Jazz Juice’ and House.  In the large foyer will be a Street Sounds Memorabilia and Graffiti Exhibition to walk around and enjoy as well as a special lino area for those who want to get down and show off their B-Boy/Breaking skills.

Tickets available from the Street Sounds website (www.streetsounds.co) or from Ticketweb

Ticket Prices: £35 in advance.  £40 on the night.

Door Times: 7.00pm to 3.00am
