Check out a whole host of new goodies from acts associated with the two labels ahead of their collaborative night at Corsica Studios this weekend

Last summer saw the Broken20 and Infrasonics labels come together to host a collaborative night of heavyweight DJs and live sets at London's Corsica Studios, and this summer they are doing it again and adding the Grade10 label into the mix also.

Taking place this Friday, rhe line-up is topped by Equinox, the guise of highly respected D'n'B producer Marlon Sterling, while Beneath will be representing the sound of his excellent No Symbols label, which has been the main avenue of output for his own productions for some years now.

Grade10 will be represented by Prayer, Forever, Classic Coke, 8Ball & LooseWomen, with their sound highly recommended if you're not already familiar. Also amongst the packed-out bill are Don't Be Afraid label head Semtek, Monoak, Infrasonics head Spatial, who plays live, and Tengui and Datassette, who will be playing back-to-back under the guise of Misc DJs. You can get tickets for the night and check the full line-up, which has a free or pay-what-you-want entry policy, here.

Specifically representing Broken20 though are TVO and Production Unit. The former of which shares a clutch of new material above in the form of Jack On Piano. The collection takes in a number of extended ambient and drone-inspired pieces and will available for release from September 2 as the fifth edition in the ongoing 'li_series' from Broken20. You can pre-order it here.

Below is a new track from DJ Votive, made available exclusively for tQ, also. Votive has been releasing via the Broken20 label for some years now, and the unreleased track below, entitled 'Patched And Handled', is a murky, wonky bass-driven cut which finds its place right at home on the label and amongst Votive's past work.
