DJ & Music Writer from the UK

Ad:Rem 2016

The second Ad:Rem festival took place at Elektrowerkz. This event is dedicated to bringing over bands from the European scene that otherwise would not have a chance to play in the UK, as well as giving a few local acts a chance to play styles not often heard on London stages. As with last year, I was tasked with filling in the gaps between the bands. Here’s what I ended up playing.
