CONCERT

Delta Heavy + 1991

The Firmament | 5 Market Pointe Drive 8 p.m.-2 a.m. Simon James and Ben Hall — aka bass music masters Delta Heavy — first met at Nottingham University back in 2003. As a duo, their respective skill sets were perfectly matched: Simon was the one with the more traditional musical background, while Ben had a penchant for sound engineering. Both loved DJ culture, though, and both spun. United by a love of underground club nights like Stealth and Detonate in Nottingham, their passion for music from drum ‘n’ bass to house was honed after many a night and early morning dancing ‘til dawn. facebook.com/thefirmamentgvl
