With Therapy’s takeover of SALT Nightclub now only 2 weeks away we thought we would bring you an exclusive Q&A with some of the headliners from this epic event, Klip & Outlaw and Fatman D. They have kindly answered some questions we put to them to give you a little insight into what makes them tick and what got them to where they are today. This is of course all in prep for one huge night on the 14th August. Essential Cornwall and Therapy are bringing you their biggest night to date and bringing down drum&bass legends such as Nicky Blackmarket, Fatman D, Klip & Outlaw, MC Impact, Boxer Banton and many more. This is one not to be missed! Full details on tickets and the event can be found here:- https://www.facebook.com/events/255000218204903/
