Having announced the event for the first time by projecting the details on to a cliff, it was clear that South Space Records had big ideas for their first live event. This week saw the London-based collective come together at Camden Assembly, as producers, DJs & MCs took to the stage alongside visuals from South Space’ resident visual artists ASTRO/BOY, Angelo & Luke Greig. Here’s how it all went down…

South East London’s CIL opened proceedings debuting new material; a showcase of her blissfully ambient, electronic style accompanied by Saxophonist Jazz Lee’. South Space founder Stanley Sorrell [aka 5TATIC], whose set took in everything from unreleased Kaytranada to Dizzee Rascal bootlegs, was joined on-stage by vocalist Eliza and rapper Origin. Check out the highlights from the mix below.
+44RAPTURE’s high-octane set sparked mosh pits, as the producer dexterously weaved cuts from Sam Gellaitry & Kendrick Lamar among his own bootlegs. Sample a few of those below.
EKA’s punchy 808s were accompanied by visuals from Ezra-Lloyd Jackson, whose patterns reacted in real time to sounds from the decks. Currently working on a forthcoming debut LP to be released under the label next year, his new single ‘Simple’ premiered on Reprezent Radio this week.
Majoriti closed proceedings with a set that brought out the rest of the South Space crew, accompanied by visuals from Luke Greig and ASTRO/BOY. South Space’ first foray into the live sphere was an ambitious one; carried off with style as well as substance. Carrying off an audio-visual experience that traverses a range of disciplines and style is no mean feat, and it’s testament to the talents of the young collective that they pulled it off seamlessly.
