Back in 2001, fed up with playing sets on mediocre sound systems, Dillinja & Lemon D hand-built their own Valve Sound System.
Named after the valve components used in old skool power amps (which are said the give the music a ‘warmer’ sound), the Valve Sound System was designed from the ground up to showcase the full frequency range of the drum & bass spectrum, enabling ravers to be truly immersed in sound. Clocking in at a staggering 96k the Valve System is officially the worlds loudest D&B sound system.
The system made few infamous appearances back in the day, all of which are set in the memories of those that got to feel the trouser shaking power of a D&B bass line through the custom built subs… Ultimately, we think due to the it requiring three 7.5 ton lorries to transport it plus a crew to set it up, the system has been quiet for a few years… Until now!
The Valve Sound Residency
Following the Valve Sound Systems sell out return at E1, and another show at Motion in Bristol on the verge of selling out, Dillinja announces the revamped sounds return to London in a venue big enough to showcase the raw power of this legendary speaker stack…
Dillinja posted on his social media; “Excited to announce that the Valve Sound System will be returning home to Brixton next year for a residency at a venue that holds a lot of history in my musical journey, Electric Brixton!”
“After the complete sell-out of E1 for the debut return show, am proper excited to get to work on some brand new tunes to test out on the system. I’ll be joined by two bespoke, hand-curated line-ups that will be announced soon.”
The 2 night Valve Sound Residency at Electric Brixton takes place on 10th & 11th May 2024
Tickets will be available soon from Skiddle. We expect this event to sell out so secure your tickets while you can to witness the Valve Sound at Electric Brixton.
Valve Sound Documentary
Screened back in 2003, Channel 4 broadcast a documentary in the UK featuring Dillinja, Lemon D, Bryan Gee & Andy C talking about their experiences of building & playing on the Valve system.
