Apogee v Potty Mouth. DJ T., Tiger & Woods (Live), Duke Dumont, Waze & Odyssey. Was On Thursday, March 28th. @ at a secret location, 10pm - 6am
This Easter we've got an amazing party lined up, with an eclectic mix of some of the best names in house and disco who've been getting dancefloors pumping for years, and several of the best breakthrough artists for 2013. And we're very excited about the very unique new 2 room space we've got for the party - a beautiful converted warehouse space with high ceilings, exposed brickwork, and great acoustics. Expect a full funktion1 soundsystem, great production, and most importantly superb house and disco all night!!
Get involved early, this will sell out!
First up on the decks is one of the founders of legendary Berlin record label Get Physical's - DJ T. Over 20+ years DJ T has built up a rep as one of the most exciting, varied and accomplished djs to come out of Germany. Dj T is loved across the world as one of the finest djs around because as a DJ he's neither a style fascist or a slave to trends; and whether playing peaktime sets or early morning after parties always coming through as a groove- and bass-addicted club connoisseur. As well as his acclaimed installment for the Fabric mix series and his Body Language compilation, he's produced a number of outstanding original albums including Boogie Playground and his Pleasure Principle album in 2011. As a producer, T. has worked with the likes of Steve Bug and Thomas Schumacher, and has a rep for taking classic sounds and reinventing them for modern ears and dancefloors. He's a total legend and we're very excited about him headlining our Easter warehouse party.
Next up are the prolific yet mysterious Italian duo TIGER & WOODS, who will be playing an EXCLUSIVE LONDON LIVE SET at our Easter warehouse party. Having appeared out of nowhere in 2009 with their immediately classic and legendary disco edit of Walk Like an Egyptian under the moniker Cleo & Patra, they were instantly underground sensations. But over the last 3 and half years T&W have clocked up countless edits, artfully tuning, slicing and dicing old disco / boogie edits and crafting them into very unique and charismatic dancefloor disco-house monsters. And it's because of the consistent and impressive high quality of their output over the last 3 years on their cult Editainment Records that, despite being very secretive, T&W have become a global brand name in dance music. Now, having just released their second studio album in Jan 2013, we're bringing them to London as part of their current global tour for a full live set which will showcase their brand new material as well as taking in their back catalogue of smooth, hyper-looped disco and house edits. Excited!!
Joining DJ T on the decks next is DUKE DUMONT. Duke has been putting out records sporadically for a number of years but has rocketed into the limelight in the last 6 months following the release of his hugely acclaimed Volume One, and Volume Two EPs. In January this year alone he has been labelled as the One To Watch for 2013 by Annie Mac, and he provided the Essential Mix on Pete Tong's show as well. His Volume 2 series takes in a 'futuristic take' on uplifting vocal house on 'The Giver', and a crossover between deep house and bass music on the a-side 'No Money Blues'. But as he demonstrated in his Essential Mix, he's a great dj as well, skillfully taking the listener on a journey through vocal house anthems, bass grooves and more leftfield numbers. We're super hyped to see what he has in store for the dancefloor this Easter!
Waze & Odyssey are part of a new wave of emerging UK producers who are helping to keep the UK house scene on its toes. After their first release in early 2012, “Ah Baby (Here We Go Again)” they’ve released a whole load of remixes, originals, and bootlegs, ranging from raw, urban garage tracks through to epic ’90s-influenced house anthems. They originally created a fake background story about being US garage veterans raised on a diet of funk & soul in Miami, but then they came clean that they were just having a laugh with that story and are actually a couple of London veterans called Serge Santiago and Firas Waez. With a distinct Waze & Odyssey sound evolving, a new W & O record label, a love of keeping people guessing, and support from the likes of Pete Tong, Lazaro Casanova, Bicep, and Friendly Fires, Waze & Odyssey are set to be BIG in 2013.
