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.

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

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.

First broadcast by the BBC in 1967, The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour’ was a product of its era while also being years ahead of its time. The film anticipated techniques that were to become industry standards , such as ad lib film scripts, mocumentaries and surreal Television comedy.

The night is inspired by the evolution of psychedelic music, from folk, through rock and soul music, to acid house and contemporary club music.

Fiona Bevan and Laura J Martin, two of the UKs fast rising female singer songwriters, will form part of the folk connection.

They join Noise of Art regulars, The People Pile, Overlap, Your Mum, Prick Image and more to be announced, who’ll complete the immersive cinema and club experience.

Rounding off a week of events that’s seen the Beatles’ cult film, Magical Mystery Tour, shown on the big screen for the very first time, Apple Films Ltd (the film making arm of the Beatles’ company) is allowing Noise of Art to screen the film as part of Noise of Art’s cross platform clubbing event.

This is the last screening in a week of events celebrating Magical Mystery Tour in the run-up to its release on Blue Ray and DVD. It follows a gala event at the BFI Southbank on Oct 2nd, where Noise of Art will create the after show for an invited audience.

The event continues Noise of Art’s celebration of the 45th anniversary of psychedelia, which started with a sell out New Year’s eve event in London and saw three days of activity at Latitude Festival.
