Radikal Guru (Moonshine Recordings)
One of the brightest lights of the roots-influenced underground community, Poland born Mateusz Miller has pioneered a compelling and unique fusion of sounds that encompass dub, reggae and dubstep under his Radikal Guru moniker. Inspired by an appreciation of sound system culture, his music has become synonymous with suffocating degrees of dread bassweight, vibrant and eclectic palettes of tone, and varying energy levels that cater for both dancefloor focused ruckus and for more meditative listening.
Heavily influenced by the dub music originators like King Tubby and Scientist, Matt first gained worldwide acclaim and recognition through a string of killer remixes and vinyl releases on London’s leading reggae/dubstep imprint Dubbed Out Records, before forming a creative partnership with fellow label Moonshine Recordings where he has gone on to cement his reputation as one of the strongest proponents of the scene.
His Moonshine discography boasts highlights that include his debut LP ‘The Rootstepa’ and the mighty ‘Dread Commandments’ 12” or his second LP ''Subconscious'' that includes dancefloor killers like Stay Calm ft. YT or Warning ft. Echo Ranks. In 2016 he released his third studio album ’Dub Mentalist’ including more exciting collaborations and soundscapes.
Not only a talented producer, Matt is also a fine selector and deejay, conveying his passion for music through DJ sets that pay homage to the sound and culture’s rich history as much as they showcase the freshest cuts of sonic innovation from himself and his contemporaries. He has hit spots all around the world as far afield as Russia or South Africa to assault sound systems with bass-fuelled beats and positive vibes, including recent gigs in the US, Mexico and Australia.

Black Rhino pres. Ishan Sound (UK) / 06.12

Ishan Sound (UK) / Kaya Foundation Crew / ZO / Alienmade
6th of December / Expirat
Starting 23:00 hours / Ticket: 30 lei

We are happy to announce our last monthly residence for this year in club Expirat will focus on a journey into bass music. From roots reggae to dubstep this session is dedicated to the low frequencies and the culture behind the sound.

Ishan Sound

Bristol based DJ and producer, part of the Young Echo collective, Ishan Sound has helped sculpt an array of music that gleefully exists on the more experimental edges of music, but his solo output under the Ishan Sound name has quite a specific and direct intention. Piled full of low end then riddled with interesting melodies and chunky percussive elements his music belongs in dark rooms, played loud on muscled soundsystems that can replicate the dense sense of dread that he writes and captures. Ishan Sound has released music on labels such as Young Echo, Peng Sound, Zam Zam and Tectonic.

Recently signed at the Romanian label Dirty Beats with a powerful remix for High Kulture & Unda Sinista's 'Bass Era', made him produce more music and collaborate with different promising dubstep artists such as Kodama or Ego Death. Slamming in with dark, minimalistic dub-induced sets, he is keeping his journey alive and diverse, providing a cracked window into the deep space of 140 bpm music.
