Join us for our 7th and final south coast dance before we ship off to LDN for good. To thank you for all your support we’re bringing 2 more debuts and 3 more of the most unique producers in the field to our favourite Italian restaurant, marking our return since our party w/ Mall Grab last year.
Bringing hypnotic melancholic vocals, scuffed Acid and that all familiar Lo-Fi glitch, Baltra is something of a post-rave pundit. With beginnings as a YouTube sensation (stacking over a million views on seminal track ‘Fade Away’ alone), the Brooklyn based beat-maker and originator of label “96 and Forever” will be making one of his very first UK appearances at Brighton’s choice pizzeria. Look out for the wax re-release of his deep-space EP ‘No Regrets’ with budding Lobster Theremin affiliate label ‘Of Paradise’ any day now.
Owner, A&R, artist and designer at Klasse Recordings, Luca Lozano should need no introduction. With crude releases on Optimo, Sex Tags UFO, Unknown to the Unknown (not to mention killer tracks with DJ Fett Burger and Mr. Ho), the Berlin bred creator is no stranger to the dance. Dropping in at around 130 bpm with insatiable drums and old school Jungle breaks that’d get your geriatric granny stepping, his sets are not for the faint hearted. Fuse that with missing vocals from 80s Detroit and a flair for Acid to arrive at Luca’s truly imitable sound – it’s safe to say this booking’s been a long time coming.
Capping things off for peerless producers we have Lisbon’s own Photonz packing the pure unadulterated Acid. His sound as a DJ and producer is a new take on the legacies of early Chicago house, Detroit techno and Drexciya-style electro.. Returning after nearly a decade to Brighton’s shores, Marco Rodrigues has since launched the label One Eyed Jacks, hosted weekly radio show Principo da Incerteza on Lisbon’s Oxigenio radio and merited a place as one of the resident hosts for Unknown to the Unknown shows on NTS radio. His high-energy sets are always seamlessly versatile, dipping between the many Lusophone African sounds that have heavily influenced Portuguese dance music in recent years. Expect elements of kuduro and funaná, sounds which have transformed Lisbon’s dance music culture, and forward-thinking labels like Príncipe have cultivated expertly.
