9 Anthony Parasole ‘Infrared Vision’

Ben Klock, Drumcode: Ben Klock hammers out an entrancing set and throws simultaneous rhythms down. Towards the end of his slot, Klock introduces us to this spacey cut from Anthony Parasole’s debut album. Ben stands tall in the middle of the impressive Drumcode stage design, which mimics the logo of Adam Beyer’s illustrious record label, also seen on flags and T-shirts worn by many members of the crowd.

10 Bastinov ‘Parallel Universe’

Adam Beyer, Drumcode: A rapturous response welcomes Adam Beyer at 8pm. The Drumcode extraordinaire drops a set you know he’s been saving especially for the London troop. It includes a fierce, unidentifiable remix of Rozalla’s ‘Everybody's Free’ which is a definite highlight. Beyer repeatedly thumps it out and fist pumps rarely leave our line of vision. As night finally falls the melodic synth of ‘Parallel Universe’ knocks us sideways with its powerful groove, while striking visuals of evolving graphics take it to the next level.
