Art Xtreme Media’s Taboo nights hits its 19th edition and its First Anniversary Friday 1 June 2018 up in the Box on Lvl 32 at Elysium Bar & Terrace with resident Ken DMA, together with Blastique & Lish.
Taboo is a party that aims at your most intense music desires as it looks to showcase non mainstream music genres that only you enjoy, maybe listening to it on a quiet Sunday afternoon or when you want to fill your soul with energy that only you know how to fill.
The music direction of this night will be experimental and focused on house music of all sorts including jacking, leftfield, classic, progressive, acid and more, as well as crossing genres to the likes drum’n’bass, breakbeat, UK garage, bass, dub and reggae.
