Concrete Bar, Haywood Gallery, Friday 22 February

Slipped Disco, slides back to the Southbank Centre with an open ended music policy of all things dancefloor. Time Out had this to say about January’s event there: “Long-running night Slipped Disco and its founder Ben Osborne bounce back over to riverside venue Concrete at Southbank Centre for a new monthly residency of obscenely fun electronic oddness. This pleases us very much indeed, primarily because of the anything-goes music policy that sees anything from classic techno, punk-funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite do the rounds. Welcome back, Slipped Disco, and let the fun and weirdness begin again.”

RE:PLAY
w/ special guests:
FRED DEAKIN (LEMON JELLY) and resident DJ BEN OSBORNE

BEDROOM BAR, 62 RIVINGTON ST, London EC2A 3AY www.noiseofart.org

9-3am £5 adv / £7 on the door

Fred Deakin has crossed boundaries from the start. A classically trained musician, he was a pioneer of dance music in London, where he grew up, and Edinburgh – where he lived for a decade. While in Scotland he started his artistic career as part of the Airside collective and ran several club nights.

But it was with old friend Nick Franglen, a studio programmer, who worked with Primal Scream, Bjork and The Spice Girls, that he began recording under name Lemon Jelly.

Between 1998 and 2000 they released three EPS on their own label, Impotent Fury – also the name of their seminal Brick Lane club night.

After signing to XL, they released the EPs as an LP ‘Lemonjelly.ky’, before moving onto their second album, ‘Lost Horizons’, which was released in 2002, and nominated for the 2003 Mercury Prize and Brit Award.

The last LP from Lemon Jelly, ’64-’95, featured samples drawn from the years between those two dates and came out in 2005. The band were to announce they were taking a break in 2008, but Fred continued working on his side projects, in 2006 writing electronic music for silent films and DJing at the first Noise of Art events at The National Film Theatre and Tate Britain. He released his neo-Balearic album, The Triptych, in 2007.

Most recently Fred debuted an interactive art installation for La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris in June 2012 and released the debut album from his new musical project Frank Eddie in the winter of 2012.

Fred’s career has covered everything from hip hop to house to downbeat to leftfield film tracks. What period he will re-play at RE:Play is anyone’s guess.

Resident DJ and long standing London DJ, Ben Osborne, will also be on hand with a platter of freshly cut tracks and a trademark roof bumping mix to keep spotters and dancers on their toes into the wee hours.

special guest THE REFLEX joins resident DJ BEN OSBORNE
BEDROOM BAR, 62 RIVINGTON ST EC2A

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.

RE:TRAIN Sat 27 October TRAIN is back

Halloween Special : RE:TRAIN
(RE:PLAY vs TRAIN)
w/ special guest – Norway’s finest:
MENTAL OVERDRIVE (LIVE)
plus DJs CHRIS COCO and BEN OSBORNE
The Loft / BEDROOM BAR
62 RIVINGTON ST EC2A
Free before 9pm
9-3am £5 adv / £7 on the door

For a very special deep house and Balearic one-off, Re:Play is bringing seminal early Naughties nightclub, Train, back from the dead for a Halloween special.

For this one-off night, Scandinavia’s electronic maestro – and Balearic lynch pin – Mental Overdrive (aka Per Martinson) returns to the London stage for a very rare live performance!

Martinsen has been releasing records, creating remixes and doing live shows under his Mental Overdrive moniker since his precocious 1990 debut on R&S Records – the “12000 AD” EP.

More recently he’s released a series of well received albums for seminal Scandinavian label, Smalltown Siupersound, issued a slew of singles for Prins Thomas’ Full Pupp imprint, and a string of modern balearic classics on his own label Love OD Communications.

Alongside this release schedule, he’s found time to create transmedia art projects, write scores for Russian silent movies and produce a new album for side project Frost – all the while carefully monitoring the melting of the ice-cap and the magic illumination of the northern lights from his native Tromsø, in northern Norway.mental Overdrive plays RE:Train with Ben Osborne and Chris Coco

Launched in the early 2000s, club night Train literally entered the record books when it set the Guinness World Record for the most DJs to play in one set in 2003. After residencies at Bridge and Tunnel and AKA (where !!! held an impromptu after party after their fist London gig) it settled in at Cargo, over the road from tonight’s gig.

Designed as a club that mixed live sets seamlessly into DJ sets, it soon formed a live music collective, Les Hommes Du Train, which, despite never releasing any music, attracted praise from such electronic maestros and tastemakers as Booka Shade, Trevor Jackson, Coldcut and Laurent Garnier.

Started by DJ and Noise of Art founder, DJ Ben Osborne, the early nights often featured then BBC Radio 1 presenter and Ibizan fixture DJ Chris Coco – the reknown Balearic DJ and producer. The two DJs became a regular partners at Train nights in London and Paris – and anywhere else they could persuade people to buy them a train ticket to.

Ben and Chris also played regular slots at a successful DJ bar experiment at the National Theatre on London’s Southbank.

This will be the first time these one time regular sparring partners have teamed up together in over three years.

The duo will be mixing up the genres and periods with a trademark deep house and eclectic set, keeping spotters and dancers on their toes into the wee hours.

Re:Play gives guest and resident DJs space to express themselves in full length sets, during which time they re-visit a particular period of their career.

RE:PLAY returns 25 August with Diesel & Ben Osborne

RE:PLAY
w/ DIESEL (X Press 2) and resident DJ BEN OSBORNE
BEDROOM BAR, 62 RIVINGTON ST EC2A
9-3am £5 adv / £7 on the door

TICKETS ON SALE HERE

Re:Play, the new club night from Noise of Art founder and resident DJ Ben Osborne, invites just one seminal guest DJ each month.

This month sees Diesel, half of DJ duo Rocky and Diesel and Xpress 2, join Ben on the checks for a carnival special.

Born out the UK’s Balearic DJ movement, Diesel’s earliest influences were warehouse parties where rare groove, soul, jazz, go-go and hip hop music were mixed together.

Following the arrival of Acid house, Diesel became a core member of Xpress 2 and one of the pioneers of UK house, responsible for early Nineties underground anthems such as ‘Muzik Express’, ‘London X Press’ and ‘Why Not?’.

Meanwhile, as part of the Ballistic Brothers, Diesel had helped shape the downbeat sound of trip hop.

By the turn of the Millennium Xpress 2’s deep house sound had risen from the underground to the top of the UK charts, scoring hits with classics such ‘Lazy’, featuring David Byrne of Talking Heads, and ‘Give It’, with vocalist Kurt Wagner of Lambchop.

His most recent LP, last year’s The House of Xpress 2, saw Diesel, and partner Rocky, update their trademark sound with new influences drawn form their globe trotting DJing activity. Meanwhile their Thursday evening show for Ministry Radio sees Xpress 2 continue to steer a pathway through 21st century house music of all genres.

Which period Diesel will revisit at Re:Play is anyone’s guess.

Resident and long standing London DJ, Ben Osborne, will be mixing the genres and periods in sets either side of Diesel, to keep spotters and dancers on their toes.

Re:Play gives guest and resident DJ 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 isn’t announced before the night.

Free before 9pm

Following its packed-out sessions with Severino, Mark Moore and Martin Brodin, Re:Play returns to Shoreditch’s new two floor nightclub, Bedroom Bar, with special guest JUSTIN ROBERTSON and host DJ Ben Osborne.

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.

A DJs DJ and respected producer, Justin Robertson’s career in dance music goes back to the Madchester era, when he span at clubs such as Spice and Most Excellent, clubs frequented by two lads called Tom and Ed who would later become The Chemical Brothers.

Having shifted back South to London, Robertson’s career has also seen him constantly shift rolls as DJ, producer and lead singer of bands such as Lion Rock and Thee Earls. His latest project is Deadstock 33s.

His music style is just as varied, having championed the new Balearic movement, as well as Big Beat and house and techno music. As a DJ, Justin always wears many hats – both literally and metaphorically. Depending on the night you’ll hear him delve into disco rarities, acidic techno, Chicago house, Balearic classics, reggae, northern soul and pop.

In the studio, Robertson has reworked Bjork, Felix Da Housecat, Chicken Lips, Stopmakingme, Fatboy Slim and many more.

RE:PLAY with Mark Moore, Saturday 28 April

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

BUY TICKETS HERE

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.

RE:Play Club night launch

by on Mar.25, 2012, under Events

“A brand new club night that sees great London DJs get stuck into a session all night long.” (Time Out)

Celebrating this month’s transformation of Bedroom Bar into a new two floor nightclub, restaurant, bar and live music space, DJ Ben Osborne (Noise of Art) launches his new club night RE:PLAY.

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 and dancefloors time to get on their groove – with one twist. During the set the DJ will play a section of music from a particular point in their career. The period selected won’t be announced before the night, so it’s up to the train spotters to guess the era.

With the first six months of guests to be announced soon, the first guest DJ is Severino.

Hailing from Northern Italy, Severino literally grew up on a diet of Cosmic Disco. A young disciple of Italo legend Daniele Baldelli – the man who gave cosmic its name – Severino became a DJ in his own right during the Nineties.

After moving to the UK to manage Italian label, Disco Inn, he hooked up with Rob Wood (Editor of Jockey Slut) and Michael Morley (Zomba Records/ Lucky Numbers) to start the infamous Happy Families club night. It was soon snapped up for a residency at Fabric.

At the same time he became a fixture at hip venues on London’s gay scene, taking his trade mark house mixes into such clubs as Crash and AM and starting the CODEX club with fellow Italian jock Nico De Cigelia.

His next big break came at the end of the era dominated by electro clash. Jim Stanton, at the time running the seminal electro night, Cock, decided to open a neo disco club in London (Horse Meat Disco) and Severino had the perfect pedigree for resident DJ.

The growth of disco over the last seven years has seen Severino rise to international fame, particularly in New York, which has more or less adopted him as his third home.

In the process he’s became a conduit for the new NYC sound, importing New York’s cool handclap soundtrack back to the UK. Meanwhile he’s formed underground house outfit Hyena Stomp with Nico and started releasing his own material via labels such as Munich’s cutting edge Gomma imprint.

RE:PLAY will be inviting Severino to revisit a set from a classic period of his past on Saturday 31st March, as well as getting him to unearth new gems. Meanwhile DJ and host Ben Osborne will be keeping the dancefloor moving with a trademark genre blending set.
