Slipmatt is known in the Rave scene as The Godfather, a title well-earned having been involved since the 1989 Summer Of Love and every stage of dance music’s evolution ever since. His iconic sets at original acid and warehouse parties such as Raindance and Energy paved the way for his non-stop 30 year career to date.
Along with fellow school mate and turntable whizz, DJ Lime, the two became famous together as SL2 and took the UK by storm with some huge underground tracks. In 1991 they signed a record deal with the legendary XL Recordings for ‘DJs Take Control / Way In My Brain’ which hit No.11 in the charts and got the lads on to the TV with multiple appearances on TOTPs and Dance Energy along with close mate MC Jay J.
Their follow up ‘On A Ragga Tip’ was huge all over Europe and earned them top 10 for 8 weeks and a number 2 spot for 3 weeks in the UK pop charts.
Since the early 90s Slipmatt has gone from strength to strength consistently staying on point as one of the best club and festival DJs of his kind worldwide. In more recent years he has created the World Of Rave brand with his own podcast and rave website. Slipmatt is also currently planning his own Ibiza event ‘Old Skool Ibiza’ for May 2019 which is already looking like it will sell out soon.
We are very excited to present this exclusive live show bringing together the original SL2 line up of Slipmatt, Lime & MC Jay J plus special guests MC Chalkie White and the Stage Invader dancers. This show will also include a special DJ / MC performance by Slipmatt & Chalkie White tracking the journey of early rave from 1988-1994.
Support comes in the form of TRUOLDSKOOL resident Mudfoot Blaps.
