Topping the bill is one of the fresh new talents emerging in the garage and house scene, Bareskin. After causing waves in the scene following the release of his debut EP ‘Flow’ (released on the Losing Suki imprint), Bareskin was signed to label giants Hypercolour for his next release, ‘Eyes’ EP. Widely tipped as the one to watch, whilst still 18, Bareskin’s future promises an awful lot. His signature garage style of cut up vocals, synth heavy basslines, and a skipping house beat is guaranteed to both excite the mind and move the body.

Genre defying maverick Last Magpie will appear alongside Bareskin. The much talked about Leeds producer is completely adept at fusing elements of techno, dub, garage house and even jungle in order to create a heady mixture of ever surprising, but reliably enjoyable dance music that is certain to set dance floors on fire. Also signed to the Hypercolour label with Bareskin, Last Magpie has been influential in broadening the labels horizons, keeping it right at the forefront of the underground dance music scene. As a DJ his range of influences shine through to create a fiercely eclectic but highly danceable experience. Expect to hear a mixture of old and new, obscure and classic, all in an enthralling narrative that will keep you moving through to the early hours.

Also heading the bill will be graduates from the always exciting Bristol music scene, producer and singer songwriter duo Az & Tor. Fresh from being labelled ‘Ones to Watch’ by BBC Introducing, the duo are shamelessly bringing together elements of everything that is good in dance music today, coming up with something that joins the dots between house, bass music, and skippy 808 driven 2 step garage, creating spaced out, beautiful, but firmly dance floor results. Az & Tor are prime examples of what makes UK underground dance music the best in the world, and are well worth checking out. 

After the overwhelming success of their recent events in XOYO, The Nest, and Ministry of Sound, Spacestation’s visit to Peckham’s very popular Bussey Building is all set to continue advancing the underground movement, and create an incredible night in the process.

With this line-up, you’d expect nothing less.
