Club: Numbers
Venue: Sub Club

Numbers essentially stands as the answer to the following question; just how many great artists does your club book? For the awakening of Summer Numbers bring Joy Orbison (Hot Flush) hot on the trail of his floor-buzzing Hyph Mngo release last year. Eyes off the shoes for a fusion of house, dubstep, tropical and UK funky edges! Residents Nelson and new addition Kasrave will be on support; also keep an eye out for Kasrave's debut release entitled Quotes, due on the Numbers labels this month.
