Birth Records Event: 93 Feet East, London: 7 September
For those of you in and around London, you might want to know about this free entry event by Birth Records in association with The Playground at 93 Feet East, London on 7 September. The c90′s and I.R.O.K. will headline.
For those not in London, never fear, we’ve a mixtape from one of the headliners. The C90′s have appeared here before with their indie disco thing. They’ve a new mixtape out on soundcloud for those that want to have a look. But it’s far too disco for me. Instead, let’s have something from the curiously-named I.R.O.K. Formed from the embers of Dead Kids, they are described as Afro Punk. And the mixtape veers from some cool electronica to heavy duty punk. If you want something out of the ordinary, this is for you.
The Intergalactic Republic of Kongo’s end of summer ‘je suis un rockstar’ mixtape

► WITHOUT MY MEDICINE- Without My Medicine make raucous Stadium Electro-Punk and are known for their energetic and lively shows, fusing the punk energy of the Sex Pistols with the futuristic synths and beats of Depeche Mode – Think massive choruses, ripping guitar solos and searing synths.
► ARROWS DOWN- Residing in North West London, Arrows Down has recently released his debut album ‘PYRAMID’ as a free download. Two follow up albums have been released in September 2011.
► PHOTOMATIC- London based Marc dos Santos David brings us a dynamic twist of genres, fusing Techno, alternative rock, funk and new wave with gritty bass lines, classical melodies and rap.
