Noise of Art – 100 Years of electronic music at The End Festival

by noise of art on Oct.29, 2013, under Events

Noise of Art’s continues its celebration of 100 years of electronic music in November by linking up with leftfield music craftspeople The Local for their Crouch End based festival The End and local electronic pioneer Si Begg.

The festival honours Crouch End’s musical talent and less than obvious international touring acts, so Noise of Art has naturally invited local electronic pioneer Si Begg to spin a straight forward DJ set – which, for anyone that knows Si, is sure to be anything other than straight forward.

This month dance music bible Mixmag said this about Si: “Over nearly two decades, Si Begg has been a pioneer and genre-mangler, having rocked the techno world, turned the breaks scene inside out, pre-empted ‘future garage’ by a decade, torn up dubstep and ambient and been a vital part of Tony Thorpe’s Studio Rockers setup.”

Seems like the right Crouch End local for the 100 years celebration then.

He’ll join Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne on decks.

special guest THE REFLEX joins resident DJ BEN OSBORNE

9-3am £5 adv / £7 on the door

Re:Play, the “unique club night” (Time Out) from Noise of Art founder and resident DJ Ben Osborne, invites cheeky disco edit king The Reflex in for a festive shindig.

Yet another talent to hit these shores from Paris, The Reflex has become a fixture of BBC Radio 6 Music, with specialist shows regularly playing his masterful revisions of classic and rare as hen’s teeth tracks.

His productions range from re-workings of disco from the Seventies, through eighties classics and onto rare as gold dust tracks from the Sixties. All of them worked in to effortless dance floor filling stompers. In the hands of The Reflex, even Christmas party playlists get transformed into into cool dancefloor cuts.

Getting the party started and bringing it to a roof rattling end will be host DJ and long standing figure on London’s electronic scene, DJ Ben Osborne. Ben’ll be mixing up the genres and periods with a trademark eclectic set, keeping spotters and dancers on their toes into the wee hours.

“Great concept, with consistently great guests too” (Time Out).

Trees For Cities fundraiser at The Social

by noise of art on Sep.07, 2012, under Events

Trees for Cities, the party-minded charity that raises money to plant trees in urban areas around the world, is hosting a party at central London’s most established electronic music haunt, on Saturday 15 September.

Read the TIME OUT preview Here.

The line-up features regular Trees DJs Ben Osborne, head honcho of pioneering music and film outfit Noise of Art, Leftside Wobble, re-edit maestro and recent K7 signing, and David Jenkinson (hermosabeatscartel), a man as familiar with DJing on the beach in Cannes and Miami as he is with dropping tunes for London Trees partygoers. We’re also very excited to have a Trees DJ debut from the force that is Miss C, a Burning Man aficionado and general good-time party lady with an increasingly enviable festival resumé.

All profits from the night go to Trees for Cities and its brilliant tree planting work in urban areas in London and beyond.

The evening follows the Tree-Athlon event earlier that day in London’s Battersea Park. There, an assortment of live bands and performers will join Ben Osborne on the Blue Bus – a vintage 1962 VW bus that Noise of Art used as a ‘Love Buggy’ stage for psychedelic events at this summer’s Latitude Festival.

Also on site supporting the event will be Alex James from Blur, 80s pop star Sinitta, Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins and designer Margot Bowmen, of The Estethica Review.

The Tree-Athlon sees hundreds of runners coming together to run 5K at London’s coolest fundraising event. If you fancy running (and you should), it’s £22 to register. Anyone signing up for the Tree-Athlon gets in free to the party, with a list available at the VW bus.

Register at

Advance entry at the Social party is a paltry £3 in advance (early doors), or £5 if you’re slow. On the door it’s £3 before 8pm, £5 before 10pm and £7 after. Sound complicated? It isn’t really. It’s cheap.

He’s also been working with producer and DJ Justin Robertson, another Noise of Art regular. All of which makes him a perfect representative to connect today’s club music to its psychedelic ancestry.

RE:PLAY, returns with special guest MARTIN BRODIN and host DJ Ben Osborne.

Featuring only one seminal guest DJ each month, RE:PLAY is a back to basics club night that gives guest DJs space to express themselves in full length sets.

This month sees Martin Brodin, one of Scandinavia’s most influential deep house exponents, take to the decs.

Brodin is the founder of Sweden’s deep-house labels, Deeplay Music and Soultec, and the MB Disco neo disco imprint.

He emerged on the international scene in 1990s as a key figure in the deep house wave sweeping through Scandinavia. His Deeplay imprint became a flagship of the movement.

Since then his fluid DJ style has seen his love of early Chicago house develop into a deeper jazz tinged period, followed by a recent return to his roots in disco.

A skilled producer, he’s recently re-worked Georgio Morodor’s The Chase, while his own compositions have featured on such seminal labels as Buzzin Fly, Mood Music and Seamless.

Martin started his neo disco imprint  MB Disco in 2010, releasing on point records by Ilija Rudman, Ray Mang, Chicken Lips and Drop Out Orchestra.

His own releases for the label, such as Gamma Ray and Blood Stud, have been hammered by the likes of Aeroplane, The Revenge, The Glimmers and Tensnake – to name a few admirers.

Martin will be making a rare London appearance at May’s Re:Play.

RE:PLAY with Mark Moore, Saturday 28 April

by noise of art on Apr.14, 2012, under Events

RE:PLAY with special guest: MARK MOORE & host DJ BEN OSBORNE (Noise Of Art)
BEDROOM BAR, 62 RIVINGTON ST EC2A 9-3am £5 adv / £7 on the door


Following its packed-out debut at Shoreditch’s new two floor nightclub, Bedroom Bar, RE:PLAY returns with special guest MARK MOORE and host DJ Ben Osborne.

Featuring only one seminal guest DJ each month, RE:PLAY is a back to basics club night that gives guest DJs space to express themselves in full length sets – with one twist. During the set the guest DJ will play a section of music from a particular point in their career. The period selected won’t be announced before the night.

The second guest DJ is one of London’s longest serving and most inspirational DJs.

Mark Moore shot to fame as the driving force behind Eighties electronic pioneers S’EXPRESS and his number one hit ‘The Theme from S-Express’. But to most clubbers today his notoriety owes more to his unique and eclectic DJ skills, than his string of hit records and remixes.

Moore’s pedigree in London’s DJ culture is unparalleled. He started DJing at Philip Salon’s ground-breaking MUD Club – a residency he held for over five years, before being offered a slot at Heaven’s PYRAMID night. There, alongside Colin Favor and Evil Eddie Richards, Moore was one of London’s first exponents of Chicago house and Detroit techno music.

In acid house’s heyday, 1988, ‘The Theme From S-Express‘, written with co-producer Pascal Gabriel – shot to number one across most of the world. But Moore’s rise also saw him bring many others into the limelight.

For his first album Mark worked with a new singer called Billie Ray Martin. He then sought out his favourite producer, a little-known William Orbit. Both went on to become stars.

On his second LP he introduced Sonique and an undiscovered Carl Craig. Sonique became one of the world’s most successful female DJs and a successful solo artist, while many consider Craig Detroit’s finest techno producer.

Over the years Mark has indulged in a huge number of projects, from writing and art projects, to running labels. He was probably the first DJ pop star and ‘Theme From S-Express’ certainly brought UK house to the nation’s homes.

Mark still travels the globe playing electro-disco, twisted house, neo techno and whatever else he fancies to express himself as a most extraordinary DJ.

None of which will help guess what he’ll play at Re:PLAY.
