Four By Four: Sampling at the Core
Written by James Zaremba on 13th December 2016
Four By Four has crept under the radar in Liverpool over its first year of running events, attracting a close knit crowd built around word of mouth and a community committed to a love for quality sample-based productions.
The somewhat illusive and underground event prides itself on an eclectic roster of residents including Jenome; a DJ and producer for over 10 years who is quickly becoming known as a veteran on the Liverpool scene, not to mention scratch connoisseur Roguey and the events curators Impurity and Tom Braider. More recently, the Four by Four crew have linked up with a new resident in Jake D – a Liverpool head who has only recently released his own, Cycles E.P, and to ample acclaim.
After beginning their journey at Constellations, the night has now found a permanent home in the intimate surroundings of The Attic on Parr Street. This move has seen the night pick up traction, attracting a loyal crowd who build on their enjoyment with each outing. After cultivating an ever-growing growing crowd, the party’s organisers have now come together to celebrate the closing of a successful first year for Four By Four. Going all out, they have booked one of the strongest pairings of artists to emerge out of the ever-strengthening Peckham house scene, FYI Chris.
FYI Chris have built up an astounding reputation over the past year with releases on well respected and recognised contemporary labels including; Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section, S.E London’s, Church, as well as spending most of their days working in Peckham’s highly influential Rye Wax Records. The pair have appeared across a number of festivals in the last few years including Croatia’s Dimensions Festival and closer to home, Sheffield’s Tramlines as well as the ever-expanding Welsh forest festival, Gottwood. Their unique approach to dance music and set construction has fuelled nonstop dancefloor movement from start to finish time and time again.

Four By Four runs from 9pm on Friday the 16th of December at The Attic on Parr Street. The event will be free entry all night long.
