Bullion on the bill for µ-Ziq’s Cafe 1001 live show 12/11

We’re thrilled to announce that London’s Bullion (Nathan Jenkins) has joined the bill for µ-Ziq’s Cafe 1001 live show on Saturday 12 November.

Bullion has released on Young Turks, Greco-Roman, Deek and more, and recently produced a track for London-based collective 1-800-Dinosaur on ‘1-800-Dinosaur Presents Trim’ alongside James Blake and others.
“Packs a dazzling amount of creativity and colour” Dummy Mag
“Bullion’s production maintains that warm, analogue feel that is still full of impact and clarity giving it an almost timeless quality” Clash Magazine
“In meshing the dusty and the digital, Bullion does a nifty bit of skewed blending” The Wire
