PUBLIC OPEN DAY - 22nd June, free entry and for full info on this click here
Presented in partnership with the Royal Albert Hall one of the UK’s most treasured and magical buildings, LOAD is yet another ground breaking arts project from the Daydream Network. Over the space of 4 days the walls of the loading bay area, have been transformed by a team of 9 artists from the Wonderland Collective, depicting the 138-year history of this world famous venue.
The 10ft high murals, across a 1,125 square meter space are a graphical journey through some of the most memorable moments in the Hall’s existence, the heritage of the Proms and a dedication to the iconic musicians to have graced the Hall’s legendary stage, this includes; Jimi Hendrix, Pavarotti, Eric Clapton, The Killers, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Oasis, Cream and Dame Shirley Bassey to name just a few.
LOAD is the first ever event that will allow the public to experience the underground workings of the building, as it is used solely as an artist and production entrance. With approx 350 shows and events being held at the Hall each year, the artwork will welcome the thousands of individuals who make it all happen for years to come.
Throughout the last 138 years the Royal Albert Hall has been host to an unprecedented number of cultural milestones, LOAD fuses together this heritage and classic ambiance of the building with the recognition and signification of a contemporary grass roots culture. The artwork incorporates the bold and beautiful techniques and styles that have evolved from graffiti and street art; with the main focus to produce a visual masterpiece that will stand the test of time and trends, a homage to the history and a symbol of the future for this cultural landmark.

While this is by no means the first time we've seen a robotic snake prototype, it isn't every day that we find one so close to deployment. This self-propelling, two feet long robot can crawl along the ground, climb through debris, and even stand erect to give the operator a better view. The Israeli Defense Force is will use this thing for routine surveillance and reconnaissance, broadcasting video and sound to a monitor and control station. And if this is not enough? In that case, the prototype can be wired with explosives -- making it, according to the Jerusalem Post, a "suicide snake." Fun! And rather upsetting.
This is a brilliant and powerful anti-racist music video produced by director David Lodge. It was launched three days ago in Stoke, UK in front of 20,000 people - all of whom had gathered to celebrate multiculturalism and to take a stand against racism and fascism.

Domu is a true heavyweight in every dance music genre you can imagine - his reach stretches all the way from avant garde drum and bass to broken beat, glitchy hip hop, boogie, experimental techno, and Brazilian fusion. The CEO of Treble O Records, his own digital label, Domu has been extremely busy lately putting out music from artists such as NS2, Yannah Valdevit, Ben Mi Duck and Dorian Concept, working on his own projects and flying all over the world DJing. It might seem like a surprise he hasn't played at Deviation already and we're very excited he'll be joining us in the midst of the slew of brand new releases he has coming up this summer and Autumn. Already a part of the Deviation family (he has even stood in for Benji at 1Xtra on occasion), this will be a set not to be missed.
Alex Nut is fast becoming one of the most sought after emerging DJs in London, and he'll be stepping off a flight from Shanghai to play at Deviation this Wednesday. The only hip hop DJ on Rinse FM, they released his mix CD this year to broad critical acclaim, the winning formula comprised of disparate experimental sounds which seem to generate a party rocking set in the hands of the Wolverhampton native. This year Alex also launched his own record label, Eglo Records, which currently features artists such as Fatima, Shuanise and Floating Points - whose first release - "Love Me Like This" is already a Deviation classic . We welcome Alex back after he held down the top floor at our 1st birthday session, and expect no less than a classic heaving, sweaty, dancefloor set.
