Since March we have seen the return of Bang Bang to its rightful place on a Friday night. At the end of the month Russ Chimes, a promising producer and DJ from London will be at the helm. He has been gaining momentum over the last couple of years, especially given official remix credits for the likes of Chromeo, Ellie Goulding, Mark Ronson and Sunday Girl, and is setting his sights high in terms of fanbase with some anthemic and accessible productions of his own such as the recently released Turn Me Out:
Given the arguably Topshop inspired wardrobe in the Turn Me Out’s video, it seems appropriate that he’s got a full forty-five future-bass filled minutes of buttery mixtape goodness playlisted at the most popular high street clothing chain in the country; helping their punters keep it edgy since next week:
Given that for all the students this coincides nicely with the end of exams, and for everyone else the end of another working week, it would be rude not to consider checking Chimes on the 31st, with remixes stretching as far as his rework of Bastille’s Flaws you can expect everything from house music staples to charted songs appealing to even those who may normally find Junk a little out of their comfort zone!
Watch this space for the rest of the lineup, which is unannounced as it stands; given the stellar local talent Southampton tends to nuture, and Junk’s history of consistenly strong lineups you will not be disappointed.
