Oval Space Cinema presents Wild Style 30th Anniversary – screening and DJs feat. Tim Westwood and Alexander Nut.

Screening 21:00 // DJs 23:00 – 02:00


(Doors 20:00)

Oval Space celebrates the 30th anniversary of seminal hip hop culture film Wild Style with a screening and DJ sets from Tim Westwood and Alexander Nut.

Released in 1983, Wild Style is widely regarded as the most important hip-hop culture movie ever made. With an all-star cast featuring Grandmaster Flash, Fab 5 Freddy, the Cold Crush Brothers, and Rock Steady Crew, the film gives a dramatic insider’s view of the early underground Brooklyn scene and the rise of graffiti and B-boy culture in New York.   The film will be followed by DJ sets Tim Westwood and Alexander Nut. 

More about the DJs:   Tim Westwood - Arguably one of the most influential hip-hop figures in the UK, Westwood is single-handedly responsible for introducing the genre to mainstream culture here. From running a club night in the 80s (regularly attended by Run DMC no less), to bringing over Jay Z in 1997 to play at carnival and holding down shows on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra for 20 years, Westwood’s knowledge and passion remain unrivalled.

Alexander Nut – Rinse FM stalwart Alexander Nut has gained a reputation for championing a unique blend of experimental hip-hop and bass heavy sounds from the house and dubstep genres. His label Eglo Records (co-run with Floating Points) has fast become a byword for eclectic quality and continues to push the musical envelope with contrasting releases.
