Big things approaching

May 23rd, 2015  / Author: Sarcastro

Sorry crew, I know I’ve neglected this page for a bit now, but I’m excited to announce there’s a fresh new site in the works.

Stay tuned — it’ll be hard as ever and worth the wait.

Thanks for all the love and support.

Sarcastro – Live at School of Bass #43 @ Brixton’s Pub

December 25th, 2013  / Author: Sarcastro

I rarely post sets without tracklists or anything below 320kbps but I just received this recording from a show earlier this year (Saturday April 27th, 2013) and I figured I’d share it in lieu of the 7D set I promised recently (which is still coming, just at a later date)… if anybody wants any of these tracks identified, just shoot me a quick email with the track time(s) and I’ll do my best!

Cheers, hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a safe New Years :)

Kiel ‘MC’ Caesar memorial show this Friday

December 12th, 2013  / Author: Sarcastro

Hard to believe it’s been two years now since we had to say goodbye to Kiel, and like last year we’re getting together to remember one amazing guy. Not only was he a huge part of our scene as a promoter and an MC but he was a great friend to so many of us as well

Tomorrow (Friday, December 13th) Rough Crew & School of Bass invite you come join us to rinse out and remember what a great friend, family member and MC Kiel really was.

At Midnight we silence the bar to raise our drinks to the sky and have a moment of silence in honour of Kiel.
