UKG special w/ Interplanetary Criminal, RIZ LA TEEF & MORE


Price including €2,00 service costs

Saturday 17th June at Parallel
Doors: 23:59 - 05:00

UK club devotees PARDON return to Parallel on their 7 year anniversary with a hotly-anticipated UK garage special to fire up the summer. On the bill for this edition are an all-star cast lined up to bridge the gap between Amsterdam and London, with UK delegates Interplanetary Criminal and RIZ LA TEEF flying the UK flag, alongside local talents Soft Break and EYCEE for a night of sub destroying bass.


PARDON is as an open-minded platform for club music with a UK undertone: house, jungle, electro, breakbeat, techno, and 2-step/garage. Following several editions at different venues, PARDON settled down for a dazzling debut at Parallel in April 2022 with Two Shell & Pangaea. Returning in full force following a cage-rattling Kingsday edition in April, expect refreshing sounds and danceable club rhythms from different electronic music genres.

Interplanetary Criminal

Interplanetary Criminal is a pioneering DJ, producer and co-head of the independent ATW Records whose cultivated UKG sound has been turning heads in even the furthest corners of the globe. The Manchester-born producer first debuted in 2016, since then releasing a string of rave-ready singles and EPs, including his number-one single with Eliza Rose, the inescapable summer anthem of 2022: B.O.T.A.

This year, he will go on to release his first longer-form project All Thru The Night via legendary UK Garage label Locked On Records. The compilation comes 25 years after Todd Edwards’ own-comp and will feature all new, original music from the very best in contemporary UK Garage.


Hailing from South London, dubplate tastemaker and Rinse FM resident, RIZ LA TEEF, is revered for his love of all things vinyl. A one-of-a-kind selector with a treasure trove of records, specials and rarities spanning UKG, UK funky, dubstep and grime, RIZ has spent the last decade establishing himself as one of the UK’s most sought-after DJs.

As comfortable performing with MCs as he is curating extended sets for dancefloors, RIZ’s energy and character behind the decks have also become a calling card all of their own, with his vast back catalogue of mixes across radio (Rinse FM, BBC 1XTRA, NTS Live) to industry-leading platforms such as Boiler Room, DJ Mag and FACT being a testament to his credentials and talent.

Soft Break

Soft Break is a Rotterdam-born and based DJ, audiovisual artist and designer whose early encounters with the city's jungle, dubstep and grime scene are heavily reflected in her eclectic sets. Moving through gentle vocals, percussion, hard drums, footwork, hip-hop and thundering bass, expect genre-busting, energy-driven aural narratives, full of unexpected twists and turns from this rising star.

2022 marked the year of major debuts, wowing crowds at Dekmantel Festival, De School, WOO HAH!, Vandalized, SPIELRAUM and Dekmantel Selectors throughout a variety of outstanding sets, frequently sharing the stage with her companion Nala Brown. As a founding member of the collective AMPFEMININE, she curates mixes by femme-identifying DJ’s, booking talent and hosting events and parties.


PARDON bossman EYCEE rounds out the line-up following on from an energy-filled showdown with Noire last month and a solo expedition at Lente Kabinet earlier in the festival season.

As an electronic musician, producer and DJ hailing from Amsterdam, EYCEE is known for producing forward-sounding club cuts and - in his DJ sets - blending sounds spanning house, jungle, UKG, funky, electro & bass. A former DJ on the now defunct Red Light Radio, he has been slamming out numerous acclaimed guest mixes for radio stations worldwide whilst also finding the time to release his own acclaimed music via the London-based label Sans Absence.
