We're delighted to welcome them to play back to back for us and spread their wings a little more for our party!

Depiction Records label owner Coley is one of the most understated producers and DJs we know in London. Don't let that fool you. He's been sending us some amazing music recently and we can't wait to hear what he has in store!

On resident duties as always, Hoxton FM founder Dan Formless returns to London after recent Forward Movement trips filming, digging and playing in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Amsterdam and Berlin. Curating these monthly summer parties at Grow, Hackney allows him to share some very inspiring sounds from both his collection and connections!

SATURDAY 6 JULY - JOIN FACEBOOK EVENT

Saturday showcases Grow’s eco market ‘Future Fair’, with a collection of upcycled, ethically sourced or ecologically sound products sold by independent makers and artisans, including The Herbal Barge, and War is Illegal.  The yard will be transformed with stalls, a pop-up lift gallery, an eco-pod and the Albion Sound System, a community refurbished reggae sound system.  Inside; live experimental Afro-Latin outfit, Tumbaito are suitable headliners with local DJ sets to keep the atmosphere electrified.

Since opening 5 years ago, we’ve been committed to sticking to our founding ethics: DIY; independent; and a self organised creative community with inclusive events, affordable work space and partnerships with other like-minded local businesses and community groups. We operate as an experiment in ethical and sustainable business and pay London Living Wage; source locally and ethically wherever possible and regularly fundraise for local charities. We are also powered by eco-electricity. In addition to the canalside creative space, Grow Studios (which has been running for over 10 years) has helped over 100 local artists, creative practitioners and small businesses to build, create, make and grow.

Our aim is to put people before profits and we hope we provide a space for people to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle in the midst of the capitial city by hosting a diverse programme of music and art events whilst sharing our passion for sustainability.   It has been a testing time for the local community as we respond to rent increases and the regeneration in the area so our birthday is also a chance to thank our patrons, partners and supporters.

As usual, Grow’s kitchen partner, Slow Fire London, will have a predominantly vegan and seasonal menu available and Grow’s indoor and canal side bars will have a carefully selected range of local, ethical and sustainably sourced drinks - including organic wine, prosecco and cider; lagers and ales from local and independent breweries; Kompassion Kombucha (brewed in Grow Studios); Hackney Herbal Tea; and Union Coffee; the fairtrade cola Ubuntu; Charitea; locally made Rejuce as well as Grow’s very own signature drinks such as Vegan Hemp White Russian and Homemade Hackney Spiced Rum.

It's been 5 magical years that our independent canal side creative space has been operating and we're celebrating by bringing together all that we love for a weekend in July (Fri 5 & Sat 6 2019) showcasing eclectic live music, performances and DJs as well as our eco-fair.! 🎂🎉🍾

FRIDAY 5 JULY - JOIN FACEBOOK EVENT

Friday Night's headliner Hotdoggrrrl and The Sesame Bun bring riotous rock'n'roll with elements of Punk, Garage, Reggae and Disco, supported by other local bands including Hi-iD and blues outfit The Dublo as well as artists Fear of Fluffing and Mai Butoh Dance and Wick Radio DJs.

SATURDAY 6 JULY - YARD PARTY - JOIN FACEBOOK EVENT

The mighty Albion Soundsystem will be running from 12 to 7pm in our car park for a one off yard party featuring some very special selectors 🔊🔊🔊

We'll also have our 'Future Fair' happening simultaneously; a collection of upcycled, ethically sourced or ecologically sound products sold by independent makers and artisans.The yard will be full of stalls, with our DJs providing the soundtrack to the environmentally conscious retail.

SATURDAY 6 JULY - JOIN FACEBOOK EVENT

Saturday showcases Grow’s eco market ‘Future Fair’, with a collection of upcycled, ethically sourced or ecologically sound products sold by independent makers and artisans, including The Herbal Barge, and War is Illegal.  The yard will be transformed with stalls, a pop-up lift gallery, an eco-pod and the Albion Sound System, a community refurbished reggae sound system.  Inside; live experimental Afro-Latin outfit, Tumbaito are suitable headliners with local DJ sets to keep the atmosphere electrified.

Since opening 5 years ago, we’ve been committed to sticking to our founding ethics: DIY; independent; and a self organised creative community with inclusive events, affordable work space and partnerships with other like-minded local businesses and community groups. We operate as an experiment in ethical and sustainable business and pay London Living Wage; source locally and ethically wherever possible and regularly fundraise for local charities. We are also powered by eco-electricity. In addition to the canalside creative space, Grow Studios (which has been running for over 10 years) has helped over 100 local artists, creative practitioners and small businesses to build, create, make and grow.

Our aim is to put people before profits and we hope we provide a space for people to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle in the midst of the capitial city by hosting a diverse programme of music and art events whilst sharing our passion for sustainability.   It has been a testing time for the local community as we respond to rent increases and the regeneration in the area so our birthday is also a chance to thank our patrons, partners and supporters.

As usual, Grow’s kitchen partner, Slow Fire London, will have a predominantly vegan and seasonal menu available and Grow’s indoor and canal side bars will have a carefully selected range of local, ethical and sustainably sourced drinks - including organic wine, prosecco and cider; lagers and ales from local and independent breweries; Kompassion Kombucha (brewed in Grow Studios); Hackney Herbal Tea; and Union Coffee; the fairtrade cola Ubuntu; Charitea; locally made Rejuce as well as Grow’s very own signature drinks such as Vegan Hemp White Russian and Homemade Hackney Spiced Rum.

CELEBRATING WOMEN IN SOUND SYSTEM CULTURE // ANTI-UNIVERSITY

2:00 PM14:00

CELEBRATING WOMEN IN SOUND SYSTEM CULTURE // ANTI-UNIVERSITY

Albion Sound is a Hackney-based Soundsystem. It has been restored and developed from the original system donated by Albion Kids Show Childrens Charity. It follows a DIY aesthetic and is interested in celebrating and recording Soundsystem culture.

For the AntiUniversity 2019 we propose to host a reggae yard party. The yard provides a public setting open to everyone to enjoy the music.

During 3pm - 4pm we’re inviting all women who feel connected to sound system culture to share their experiences through open-mic toasting.

We encourage women to bring records they’d like to play out as well as any items that communicate their experiences of being connected to sound system culture such as, photographs, records, posters or even items of clothing. Throughout the afternoon, Albion Sound aims to document these stories and items, through photographs, text, audio recordings and drawings to produce co-authored works.

About Albion Sound
Albion Sound is a sound sytem originally donated by The Albion Kids Show, a Hackney based play group that was resident in Hackney Wick for many years before their recent displacement from the old bus depot on Eastway. It also comprised of some components originally from the Pegasus Club in Tottenham and was in a semi/non-working condition. Its restoration by Ted Wood, Jess Quinlan and Pete Bennett began in 2018 -and is very much an ongoing process, with the three seeing themselves as custodians of this historic system, with a view for it to be shared with the community, and used to celebrate sound system culture with guest DJ's and engineers.

About Grow, Hackney
