Mark Ronson spins Chibuku Liverpool

by Rick Shaw. Published Tue 12 Apr 2011 19:06, last updated: 12/04/11

Uber superproducer Mark Ronson returns to Liverpool on Friday to DJ at Chibuku.

The dashing London and later NYC-bred playboy producer, artist and DJ has enjoyed a meteoric career, taking in everything from working with Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen and Adele to fronting Never Mind The Buzzcocks, presenting the MOBOs and – let’s not forget - The Brit and three Grammys piled into his fireplace in his apartment, too.

Mark’s golden touch extends to his revered DJ sets, encompassing a smorgasbord of styles across hip-hip, R&B, funk and pure party music, and he headlines this special Friday night Chibuku show. Liverpool’s local No Fakin’ boys are on hand to warm things up for Mark.

Up in The Loft, it’s a bass-warping session from start to finish. Arguably the most prolific producer within the drum and bass scene (with over 500 releases produced since 1991) Dillinja remains one of the scene’s leaders and this legend of the decks makes a long overdue return to Liverpool.

One of the most successful producers in jungle music - with records on over 10 labels strong, two of them his own - Dillinja is one of the few drum'n'bass artists who spends more time in the production studio than in clubs, crafting smash after smash. A firm Chibuku fave, it’s a pleasure to welcome the Valve Sound System architect back to the club. He’s supported by another act loved by the Buku faithful – drum and bass star London Elektricity aka Tony Coleman. The first incarnation of London Elektricity was the duo of Tony and Chris Goss who also founded the legendary Hospital Records record label. The hugely anticipated 7th album Yikes!, drops at the end of April and this is a unique opportunity to catch this new material played live.

Emalkay is undoubtedly one of Dubstep’s biggest producer, heading Caspa’s Dub Police label, Emalkay has a distinct take on the sound which has seen him become one of

Dubstep’s most sought after acts. Big, bad and heavy describe the sound of one of the scene’s most complex artists; his album Eclipse drops in May, so expect to catch some of these sounds in The Loft. MCs Dynamite and Madrush lay down the vocals.

Ink sees local outfit Abandon Silence take over - and they will be living up to their name. L-Vis 1990 is an electro-bass producer based in London whose style draws from drum'n'bass and grime, as well as fusing U.S. style-clashes to include as Chicago house and Baltimore club, segueing together to form one of the hottest sounds and acts around in 2011. Super hot young Irish talent Sert One also stars – at just 21 he has already been busy, including remixing for Crystal Castles. Liverpool’s dubstep dudes Rich Furness and Horza complete this special Friday night Chibuku session.
