On Saturday 11th September, Signature Brew Blackhorse Road hosted the main stage at Dialled In Festival, an all-day and all-night party presented by London's South Asian underground community.
Audiences were treated to a special one-off collaboration between Auntie Flo and Sarathy Korwar (as Rathisa) who premiered their recent collaborative work in an intimate setting, alongside Ninja Tune-signee Nabihah Iqbal’s singular version of shoegaze guitar-heavy instrumentation sat neatly against rock acts including Scottish-Indian award-winning artist Kapil Seshasayee and punk legend Nadia Javed.
The DJs throughout the event also took us on an exploration of genres. Former Boiler Room presenter Ahadadream brought his taste in percussive club music while Apple Music presenter NAINA raised the temperature with her signature 160 BPM sound. Acts like Manuka Honey, Debonair, Anu and Arthi showcased their broad range of tastes, showing yet again how hard it is to box in South Asian DJs.
It was truly one for the history books, and something we can't wait to do again.
