Fritz Helder live debut with Booka Shade tonight

by on Apr.25, 2014, under Events

Booka Shade have announced that Fritz Helder, of Azari & III fame, will be joining the Berlin based duo live for the first time tonight.

Fritz, who also recently re-scored ‘All That She Wants’ with Yolanda Be Cool, will be joining the Berlin electronic duo for their collaborative track ‘Love Drug’, taken from Booka Shade’s acclaimed LP, Eve.

The Noise of Art gig, which takes place on Friday 25 April as part of Convergence Festival at Village Underground, is sold out.

Tickets are available for the Booka Shade and Noise of Art curated after show, later that night, with Tom Findlay of Groove Armada DJing, We Have Band playing live and much more. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS. THERE AREN’T MANY LEFT but some will be for sale on the door.

On Saturday 26 April Noise of Art, Convergence, Village Underground and Red Gallery present Future Music Forum at Red Gallery 1-3 Rivington St, London, EC2A 3DT.

When Luigi Russolo described future music 100 years ago he was writing at the dawn of the age of large scale industry – the start of an epoch of noise. Today we are at the dawn of the digital age, where production is becoming increasingly silent. What sounds will shape the future of music?

This is the first session in a series of events discussing the future of music. It follows an afternoon of panels on music and technology at the Barbican and will take place in the Red Gallery’s man room (which bares an uncanny resemblence to a certain legendary Manchester nightclub).

Speakers at Red Gallery include a key note from Martyn Ware (founder of Human League and Heaven 17) in conversation with Luke Bainbridge (author of Acid House: The True Story), Dr Diana Salazar (lecturer in electronic music, City University) on the repurposing of sounds of the past to make music of the future and a discussion on the future of music writing with Professor Martin James (Solent University), James Drury (Festival Awards), Andy Malt (CMU), Carl Loben (DJ Magazine) and more to be announced.

See www.noiseofart.org for updates and more details on 100 Years of Electronic Music and on-going programme.

RE:TRAIN Sat 27 October TRAIN is back

by on Oct.09, 2012, under Events

psych_grlSaturday 27 October
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.

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