Switch Hop
Ipswich's only regular night dedicated to Intelligent Electronic Music takes place the 3rd Thursday of every month at No.16 Bar, Tacket St. Ipswich. It starts at 8pm and entry is Free! We also do the occasional one-off event at the likes of The John Peel Centre, Stowmarket.

On this site you'll find news, downloads, links and info on future happenings as well as photos and videos from previous events.

Apr 2014 - FIDO (again)
FIDO returns, like some kind of Hollywood sequel, basically we thought his December Surf Hop set kicked bollocks and wanted more. This Time It's Easter!
Switch Hop Mix 2
This mix was given away on CD to lucky punters and remained exclusive for some months until we finally uploaded it for y'all to enjoy. Click above to stream or here to download the MP3 direct.
Mar 2014 - Eddy Spirit
We were delighted to host Eddy Spirit in his debut live performance, and it certainly didn't sound like a debut. Click above to watch a snippet.
Dec 2013 - FIDO
Surf Hop was the name, and an eclectic electric DJ set from FIDO was the game. He played a delicious selection including Bassnectar, Bomb Boy and The Bahgdaddies.
Nov 2013 - :iuu
John Peel Centre fundraiser gig, :iiu played her debut gig to a good crowd and delivered the goods, John'd've been proud.
Nov 2013 - Catnip and Claws
John Peel Centre fundraiser gig, Catnip and Claws battled traffic to represent Norwich and made it just in time to deliver her delicious digital delights.
Nov 2013 - TReen
John Peel Centre fundraiser gig, TReen got the building shaking, people, foundations, the lot. I don't think it'd heard bass like it before. Personally I had a corker of a skank.
Nov 2013 - PixelH8
John Peel Centre fundraiser gig, PixelH8 was our headliner and did not disappoint, included some classics (Girl Fight!) and some stompers in his set. Great night.
Oct 2013 - The Decibel Kid
Things got a bit meta when our resident DJ The Decibel Kid played live to launch his EP, but we had DJ SU on hand to fill in DJ duties for him.
Jul 2013 - Delta Spiral
Delta Spiral trained it down from University to play our summer special, brining an electric guitar and 3 gameboys, which he proceeded to torture, poor things.
Jul 2013 - Poisk
Poisk starred in a double-header of experimental music, but we told him there had to be rhythm and he duly delivered a dynamic 25 minute piece cumulating in a fight with a giant metal slinky. Really.
Jun 2013 - Grace Savage
Reigning UK Female Beatbox Champion Grace Savage opened 2013's Switch Fringe festival at Fringe Hop and frankly left the population of Ipswich rather stunned.
Apr 2013 - Languid
Switch Hop's first proper live guest, Languid's beats pretty much dropped everyone' jaws. He then went on to perform his debut DJ set which wasn't half bad either.
Feb 2013 - Jimmy Green
Jimmy filled in while The Decibel Kid was on holiday, and to be honest we didn' miss him that much :D
Switch Hop Mix 1
Before Switch Hop was a thing, an event, a happening it was just this mix, these 60 minutes literally started everything. Click above to stream or here to download the MP3 direct.
Resident DJ : Psyone
Plays trance given the slightest opportunity, but has dished out plenty of sideways electronica in his time and has been delivering some gorgeous electro jazz/swing lately.
Resident DJ : The Decibel Kid
Tends to stick to things in the 90 to 110 BPM range, likes Instrumental Hip Hop, Trip Hop, Glitch, Jazz, Funk, German Tech, That-really-slowed-down-house-stuff and burritos.
