Plates Second Birthday

We've dished up some flavours from Plates second birthday.

Pictured above is Paddy Steer, the one man band who's played for us many times on our journey to now. We were fortunate to have him upstairs at the Malt Cross on our birthday. This was his getup.

The recordings below include OG Plates specialists from our early days, alongside more recent and welcome additions to the Plates Crew.

Tom provided an hour of grooves and interludes; a textural journey across dimensions in sound.

Guohan played 90 minutes of Funk, Hip-Hop, World and Jazzy rhythms.

Adrian Ammo took us on a crescendo of tumbling House to Jungle madness - Jazzy Soulful vibes from track one.

Hardwick provided the late-night vibes, from ethereal techno, to tribal beats and acidic bass.

Alex Wright dropped in on our birthday to lay down a solid hour of hardcore classics.

Plates resident Descent compiled a mix of Hardcore Jungle Tekno, taking you on a journey from '91 to 2016, celebrating two years of Plates Records.

Thanks to all the DJs, Selectors and everyone who took part in the event. Also a lot of love goes out to all those who've been with us over the last two years.
