Kaiju Presents: Enter the Kaiju
It’s been a long time in the making but, we are back. On the 28th April 2018, Kaiju Promotions presents a night of drum and bass not to be missed: Enter the Kaiju.
Kaiju Started as an unnamed promotion in 1994. Born, out of the fact that we quickly realized that there was very little catering for Drum and Bass in Liverpool UK. We used group to travel all over the country attending raves and after a while we just thought… Let’s have a go at this ourselves! We started by putting local parties on in the North West, centered on Jungle & Drum & Bass. We would name the parties but we didn’t have an organization name at that time. We eventually grew so big that we had to make things a bit more formal and so Cadence Events was born.
Cadence ran into the early 00’s until there appeared to be a drop off in interest audience wise and the usual life events happened inside our team at that time. Cadence finally called it a day in 2003, but now.. we are back as Kaiju Promotions.
We may have gone underground for a few years, but our team has always remained involved in the drum and bass scene in one aspect or another. There have also been a lot of major breakthroughs in technology since that time leading to the music really being pushed forward with new styles, genres and exciting innovations. What we as Kaiju are aiming to do is bring that whole audience under one roof. We want to cater for all tastes and genres because that’s where we come from… originally it was one big scene.
Our inaugural comback event, Enter the Kaiju at Hangar 34 in Liverpool will be one that Liverpool has not seen in quite some time. We are brining some of the legendary pioneering artists of drum and bass to Liverpool along with emerging and established new talent.
The line-up for Enter the Kaiju is:
