He’s hot & from Newcastle (not that one)
Dance godfather Pete Tong has already been blowing his whistle loudly in the direction of Mall Grab, labelling him one of the scene’s “unstoppable rising stars” and grabbing him for a very well received BBC Essential Mix in which the now London based DJ delivered a two-hour mix crammed full of his signature lo-fi moves with tracks from Luke Solomon, Locklead, Decka and Henry Rodrick – along with plenty of his own edits. Mall Grab made his debut in the north-east version of Newcastle about a year ago and it was suitably insane. This time around he’s sharing the bill with someone who is no stranger to the region, DJ Haus, along with the redoubtable Moxie, who has been on the Ape-X radar since, like, forever. The stars have truly aligned for this one.
Ape-X presents: Mall Grab + DJ Haus + Moxie, Friday 25 May, Digital, Times Square, Newcastle, 10pm-4am, £20. yourfutureisdigital.com
