Le Scratch & Art Against Knives

Le Scratch are back with Art Against Knives at Lovebox 2012 with another DOPE line-up including dj sets from Yasmin & Cj Beatz. Then fresh from from hosting our stage, we’re bringing our afterparty to Concrete with the addition of the awesome Roxxxann Live…

Le Scratch takes the biggest Hip-hop influenced sounds and mixes with live art installations from hyped London illustrators and artists. Art Against Knives is a young, creative charity, working to reduce the root causes of knife crime through youth-led arts initiatives that provide an alternative to violent gang culture… ALL profits from this event will go to Art Against Knives.

Djs

CJ Beatz is fast becoming the BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ to watch out for. Holding down the ‘The RnB M1X Show’ on Monday nights and waking up the nation every Sunday morning. You can also hear him on BBC Radio 1 for two hours hosting ‘The 1Xtra M1X’ every 6 weeks. CJ started as Hip-hop Dj for DMC, so he’ll be well placed to smash up the set!

Emily Rawson has played at everything from fashion events for Mathew Williamson and Vogue to parties for Kanye West and support slots for Big Boi, Wu Tang, Jazzy Jeff & a lot more. She is playing the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend, as well as festivals including Lovebox & The Camden Crawl. She has just done a guest mix for BBC Radio 1Xtra and was featured in Time Out as ‘meet the resident’ In April.

Lukey is one of the freshest Djs and producers on the scene. He has played the warm up set for Wretch 32’s performance at Vinspired Awards at the O2, won the Field Day festival DJ competition and his recent collaboration track with Toddla T released on T’s Red Bull mixtape has gained him some serious momentum.
