Nasty Crew commander Marcus Nasty is one of the most esteemed figures in UK Funky.
Having come up through the grime scene, Nasty has long been at the forefront of the homegrown house movement. Through his role as a Rinse FM DJ, he’s been an evangelist and an advocate for UK Funky; through his work as a selector, he’s kept the scene moving on the ground.
Nasty is set to appear at their year’s Lovebox festival, appearing on the Rinse Arena stage on Friday alongside Magnetic Man, Zinc, Boy Better Know, Roska and more. In honour of the occasion, FACT have an exclusive Marcus Nasty mix available for free download.
The set is taken from Rinse FM’s recent Easter party at Fabric. Nasty, augmented by Ranking and Shantie on the mic, keeps things rollicking throughout – funky rarely sounds as spirited and aggressive as it does in Nasty’s hands. Magnetic Man are among the acts cropping up in the mix.
Lovebox is running from June 15-17 at London’s Victoria Park. Tickets and further information are available from the Lovebox website. You can stream or download the full 30 minute set below.
