On saturday, May 25, we are hosting our last residency in Control Club this season. This session is unique to us as it brings forward Black Rhino Radio broadcasters from Timisoara. From dub to breaks and garage to drum and bass, we put out a night that slowly raises the tempo, constructing and promoting Timisoara’s underground sound. As usual, the Mc host is Yardie Flo, and the sound is amplified by Riddim Bandits Sound System. 

Get to know the artists and their shows on Black Rhino Radio.
