Kuai Le Da Wang was born in a strange spring dream. Self-hypnotized with joy, he magically infected those around him suffering from loneliness and loss. Under his influence, their troubles and desires melted like snowflakes on a barbecue. Animated by a quirky sentimentality and a fresh approach, he draws on the long mad tradition of dancing-room culture. Kuai Le Da Wang channels endless excitement and ecstasy into countless shapes and colors of the night.

Laksa's innovative brand of euphoric groovers have been making an impact on dance floors since his early EP’s on Beneath's Mistry and Batu's Timedance back in 2015/16. He has now garnered support beyond London and Bristol, landing himself a place on Munich's Ilian Tape with two essential LPs - Camo and Delicates.

Sep 30: A$AP Ferg

Flyer courtesy of promoter

A$AP Ferg may hail from a block in Harlem notoriously known as 'Hungry Ham' (aka Hamilton Heights), but that never completely defined him. He's shown his diverse creativity by launching clothing and jewelry lines and attending art school, constantly bobbing and weaving past expectations. As a rapper, unpredictability remains his only calling card. 

Sep 30, 9pm; RMB580 door. Arkham. See event listing. Tickets
