Last week Wordplay were invited to attend the launch of Channel 4’s late night music show FourtotheFloor (FTTF) at the lovely London home to Sonos Studio. The screenings were complimented by Thris Thian and United Vibrations both delivering exciting and intimate sets, topping the evening off. The crisp sound through the Sonos Home Sound System made it an amazing night for us and a unique listening experience. Talking to United Vibrations after their set, they told us that Sonos are:
“a genuine company trying to get creative people in the space… big up Sonos!”
Now in it’s third series, FourToTheFloor has featured a wide array of artists including Joey Bada$$, Lil Simz and many more, focusing on a variety of visuals and sounds from across the soundscape of UK’s underground music scene.
Curated and created by a team of talented music lovers and creatives, the show has rapidly gained a strong following and become a highly respected alternative music show, which gives the creators freedom to represent the artists the love in new and interesting ways.
We also caught up with James Payne, the executive producer of FTTF and founder of production company Lemonade Money, who told us:
“We exist in a bubble while we’re making it… it’s just nice for other people to see it.”
This was an amazing night of creative visuals, brilliant live music, great talks and an incredible sound system which would rival any cinema system. FourToTheFloor will be back on Channel 4 on Wednesdays at 12:05 (midnight) over the next six weeks, stay tuned!!!
