Following on from a successful inauguration last year, Rye Wax are set to host their sophomore edition of The Run Out – an alternative to Record Store Day on 21 April.
With a round-the-clock programme, The Run Out is comprised of two parts: a daytime event with a record fair, DJs, live acts, panels and exclusive documentary screenings, followed by a large-scale club event after 10pm (GMT).
DJs and live performances at the day event will come from Chicago legend Tyree Cooper, Beatrice Dillon – who, last year, collaborated with Call Super on a Hessle Audio release – Curl (made up of members Micachu, Coby Sey and Brother May), the SIREN crew, BBZ collective, Minimal Violence and more. Workshops will be hosted by music industry insiders, and the entire day will be live-streamed via Balamii.
The event will celebrate vinyl culture, with an ethos of nurturing, what’s perceived to be an exclusive community, into an inclusive and accessible event. According to the press release, The Run Out will establish itself as “a local ‘landmark’ at a time when the wider landscape of London is at a tipping point”, and when creative communities are closing down in the UK capital. Furthermore, Rye Wax have noted that “larger companies are flooding shops and pressing plants with uninspiring releases, reducing the visibility of small artists and labels”. To counteract this, the record store and club space will offer a selection of exclusive hand-cut dubplates from Lorenzo Senni, Central Processing Unit, Curl, Banoffee Pies, Gabber Eleganza, Hyperdub and more on the day.
The Run Out will be held across Peckham’s Copeland Gallery and Dolly’s Yard.
