Bail’s Best of 2015

In line with my colleagues and pals Hindle and MVRCK, I decided to wade in with my end of year besties. From grubby dub techno to angelic shoegaze, via industrial bludgeonings and S&M inspired EBM, it’s been a vintage year for quality music.

I’ll be playing a DJ set alongside BoR main man TF Wizard, live acid dynamo PRTYDSTRYR, and live techno/electro/heavy shit masters This Machine at Concrete on Sunday 27th December. Expect a right jaunty selection of bangers, so come on down and end the year with some bloody great music. Check out the event page on FB here.

Much love for Chrimbo and Happy New Year x
