Recorded live at the Bleep × store in Dalston 3rd February 2019.
The Warp Records Bleep × takeover marked the last event at our pop-up shop in Dalston. Mira Calix, Plaid and Special Request all delivered sets that were energetic, playful and ultimately; incredibly fun. This mix from Plaid starts from the off at 100% and stays there till the end. From the first kickdrum to the final squelch, this is a constant roller bursting with heart palpitating energy. 60 minutes of pure vibrancy with a breakbeat or two thrown in for good measure - fitting for a final big blow out!
No frills or faff about this set, just banger after glorious banger from Warp kingpins.
