In 2012 The Hydra series was launched on the August Bank Holiday weekend, so after a brief hiatus from this flagship weekend, we're very excited to reveal our return. Over three days we have curated a weekend of events that represent some of our key musical facets, so a beautifully mixed bag, but an opportunity to showcase some of the artists we truly love. Honouring London's diversity through the universal language of music, we present a collection of exceptional talent for the capital's electronic music community. A unique opportunity to enjoy this one-off gathering of venerated talents, under a single roof, over a long Summer weekend. Unmissable.

Sundays may well be the choice day of any bank holiday. Offering the opportunity to get stuck in afresh, to pick up where you previously left off or perhaps best of all, to unexpectedly find yourself in the dance, completely unplanned and ready for anything. And for any of those potential outcomes, we have perhaps the most apposite line-up of the weekend, reserved for the day of rest.

We welcome House music leviathan, Larry Heard for what will be his only London show of 2019. A man responsible for much of what we do, in so many ways. Accompanying Mr Fingers on our Sunday session are a triumvirate of second generation superstars straight outta the D: Carl Craig, Moodymann and Theo Parrish. If you ever wanted an insight in to what has inspired us on this journey, the craft and artistry of these titans will give you an idea. All three were representing across the Movement weekend in Detroit recently; the role that this special city has played cannot be underestimated, so it was a joy to behold them all on home turf… And from East coast to West, this party also features a Live excursion from Stones Throw's low-slung songsmith DāM Funk.

In the second space on this one, Belgian's intrepid wax hunter Lefto teams up with Brownswood alumnus Joe Armon-Jones for a trip in to the unknown, and there is more Live action from L.A. with Afrofuturist Ras G, plus support from Ash Lauryn and Sofie.

Event Review: Jazz:Re:Found Festival (Turin, Italy; 29th November to 3rd December 2017)

Embraced by the Alps Mountains in the North-western area of Italy, Turin is a city marked by its aristocratic past and industrial history. This contrast best represents the city’s multiple facets: richness and poverty, innovation and tradition, history and modernity all living together in one place. This blend and mix…
