On Saturday 9th November the grassroots charity Beat:Cancer ran their biggest and last event; marking the end of 7 years of clubnights, gigs and festivals across the UK - all in aid of funding cancer research, treatment and care.
Not content with letting the fight stop while the charity take a much needed break, Cosmic Hard Dance are stepping up to the plate with a hard dance rave that will appeal to all corners of the hard scene, along with Beat:Cancer's more industrial led fanbase.
For a few years now the crew at underground night Cosmic have been running events around London, and supporting those of other well known nights such as Xtreme and Hardcore London; for this special one off they are pooled their resources and drawing in support from some of the best in the scene to put on a night you won't want to miss.
Headed up by well known names Alex Prospect and Mike Reverie they're taking over Nambucca on Holloway Road from 7pm to 3am.
The two headliners are supported by a host of top names including a hotly anticipated b2b from Ectomorph and Sc@r, which will be accompanied by MC Sid P: celebrating 15 years on the mic, and likely invading the stage at unexpected moments all night long!
Cosmic residents Karkasaurus, the dino mad DJ duo, return to London bringing live dinosaurs, their new and exclusive mashups, onstage shennanigans - and probably too much wine to be sensible.
To bring something truly new and exciting to the event live artist Bitman will be performing with his dinobytes - a full band live show, complete with dancers and a visual extravaganze.
Forget the decks.... Bitman AKA The Darkest Byte is a live act offering a hyperactive stage show that is an audio/visual assault to the senses, full of colour, humour and interaction. This time he's joined on stage by the dinobytes.
The music incorporates many genres and yet isn?t tied to one:
Nods to chip tune, winks to hardcore techno, nudges to dubstep, plus some pretty brutal beats mixed with a whole lot of fun.
Add to this concotion an insane b2b from Dean Zone and Loki, a Cosmic debut for northern Beat:Cancer and Sentinel resident Duracell Bunny and you've already got an unforgettable night of beats and bouncing - and knowing the minds behind Cosmic they'll not be satisfied at just that - so expect more madness, more one offs and more dinosaurs from outer space!
