We’re celebrating the legendary imprint Night Slugs’ 15th anniversary this month on our mix series! Founded by Alex Sushon (Bok Bok) and James Connolly (L-Vis 1990), Night Slugs was initially launched as a club night series after Alex and James met on Myspace in 2008, expanding into a record label in 2010. From then, Night Slugs quickly became one of the distinctive dance music labels of the 2010s as they pushed a hybrid of grime, house, electro, R&B, hip hop and dubstep. With a lasting influence across the globe to this day, the label released career defining releases from the likes of Jam City, Girl Unit, Mosca, Jacques Greene, Lil Silva and more. To celebrate their 15th anniversary, Night Slugs have pulled together the ‘Classic Remixed’ compilation which fuses the label’s past, present and future with artists taking on remixes of the label’s classics. These remixers include Night Slugs family Ikonika, Helix, CalvoMusic & OSSX, as well as many of the labels peers and next-gen favourites including Grandmixxer, Bored Lord, MoMa Ready, Hagan, Karen Nyame KG, River Moon, DJ Polo & NKC, DJ Lag, scotti dee and more.
Next up in the takeover we have the legend, Bok Bok, who brings us “an hour of non-stop momentum with funky/deep house, gqom and rolling London sounds in the mix & blend”. Aside from being one of the co-founders Night Slugs party and record label, Bok Bok is an esteemed producer and engineer in their own right who has released a slew of knockout solo releases, contributed to compilations for Manara and PDA, mastered records for the likes of FAUZIA and launched their own label AP Life in 2021 as a nod to the DJ and dubplate culture they grew up on. They’re also a longstanding resident on Rinse FM.
