The newest installment in Goodlife’s monthly Label Takeover Series is easily going to be their biggest one yet! Hailing from Boston, AxH’s debut 12’ single on Tempa, released just a week ago, is generating a ton of buzz and has been dominating the dubstep charts on all the major music outlets (both vinyl and digital). Handling the American side of Tempa, it goes without saying this is a major career move for AxH; I am personally very excited to see the talent he will ultimately discover and help bring up.
But in the meantime, let’s celebrate this Friday at Goodlife. The headliner, Youngsta, was heavily instrumental in helping advance AxH’s career in the past several years. Youngsta helped introduce AxH to many of the insiders within the UK dubstep scene and was one of the earliest supporters of his tunes, placing them in full rotation on his radio show on Rinse FM alongside routine guest appearances on BBC’s Radio 1.
AxH himself will also be playing, along with an up-and-comer you should keep your ears glued to the pavement for: DanInAllston. Dan has impeccible taste for music for someone his age, keenly balancing the sounds of dubstep, house, and techno. Check out the podcast mix he recorded for BBD last year for a good example of his aesthetic.
Side note: Unity’s monthly event takes place upstairs and will have DJ Kon on the decks as well!
