Pioneers Party – The Second Hospital Blowout featuring Sam, Shy FX & Arthur Baker!

Save the date of Thursday 7th October for the second installment of our Hospital Blowout event! This time around its a Pioneers party with two legends of dance music in there own right…

Arthur Baker’s success kicked off in the early 80’s at New York’s Tommy Boy Records, where he teamed with co-producer Shep Pettibone to record Afrika Bambaataa’s groundbreaking 1982 single Jazzy Sensation ; Baker next reunited with Bambaataa for the classic Planet Rock – a watershed in hip-hop’s early evolution – its programmed beats left an indelible imprint on the music released in its wake. Baker then formed of his own label, Streetwise Records where he signed a then-unknown New Edition, featuring a young Bobby Brown, issuing the teen vocal group’s debut single, “Candy Girl,” in 1982. In 1983, when the cutting-edge British dance group New Order contacted him to produce their single “Confusion”; the record became an immediate club classic. Remixes of the track also helped pioneer the remix aesthetic throughout the rock mainstream, and soon Baker was producing material for Diana Ross, Jeff Beck, and others.

Shy FX is among the pioneers of jungle drum’n’bass, with earliest record “Jungle Love” released in 1992. After success in the Uk charts working alongside T Power and various artists throughout the 90’s and noughties he now produces tracks with the likes of Dizzee Rascal and Plan B on their recent LPs.

Support comes from Sam Young and DJ@WAR…
