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)

Phenomenal Handclap Band play Noise of Art’s Psychedelic Curiosity Show

by on Jan.11, 2012, under Events

“If you only attend one gig this month make it this…” DJ Magazine.

New York’s Phenomenal Handclap Band are teaming up with London music and art collective, Noise of Art, to play their surround club experience, the Psychedelic Curiosity Show, at Village Underground, London, on 24 February.

Early bird and early discount tickest sold out:
CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS

Click the image below to get in the mood with the psychedelic disco video to the current single:

 

The London show marking the release of Phenomenal Handclap Band’s new LP (Form & Control), sees New York’s purveyors of psych, soul, and cosmic disco enter Noise of Art’s psychedelic steam punk world.

Phenomenal Handclap Band’s sound has roots in New York, San Francisco, San Paulo and London. Imagine Curtis Mayfield and Deee-Lite throwing a Nu-Yorican house party with Afro-beat, Cosmic Italo-disco, Turkish psych and ‘70s West Coast music thrown in.

“Brooklyn collective TPHB bring their justly acclaimed psych-rock-cum-cosmic-disco party to town.” (Time Out London)

On the 45th anniversary of the UK’s Psychedelic movement, Noise of Art’s new show is inspired by contemporary steam punk and the 19th Century imagery that inexplicably became prevalent in the late Sixties. It imagines that Sergeant Pepper, Pink Floyd and The Avengers were the result of two universes colliding in 1967; throwing people from a parallel steam punk world into swinging London.

The resulting psychedelic Victoriana features coal-fired flower power, contemporary dancers, curiosities of nature, magic lanterns of psychedelic imagery, steam-powered cosmic house, psyched-out-disco and coal-fired techno.

Press about Phenomenal Handclap Band
“Punchier, grander and more focused than their debut… NYC glam dance collective reach for the stars” Q ****
‘…encapsulates the nostalgic elements of ESG, ELO, Tom Tom Club, The Doors and Sly And The Family Stone, applies a gloss of New York cool and then re-packages it with the modern production of the LCD soundsystem, CSS and Beck variety. Forget the handclap, they’ll take a standing ovation.’ – NME

‘With guitars, keyboards, percussion, and two very chic female singers (who seriously know how to rock leather leggings and sleek jumpers)—the crew took its worldly, genre-spanning sound and turned it up about a thousand notches’ -Elle

‘The PHB are astronauts of progressive soul, moored at the stellar point where rock, funk and psychedelia bloom into cosmic-disco amazingness.’ The Guardian
‘Musically diverse, incredibly melodic and dance-floor ready.’ – New York Post

‘With their multitudinous influences, blending funk, soul, reggae, dance, hip-hop and Brazilian beat, as well as rock, disco and electro, they encapsulate the spirit of the Brooklyn underground.’ – The Sunday Times Culture UK

New Year’s Eve: Noise of Art’s Psychedelic Curiosity

by on Dec.04, 2011, under Events

psych_grl
Noise of Art’s New Year’s Eve event at Sketch, with Ben Osborne, Luca Santucci, The People Pile, Overlap, Your Mum, Walkabout/ Prick Image, Kevin Pearce, Peter Hepworth, Fred’s House, The Medicine Shop, Louise Golbey and special guests to be announced.

New Year’s Eve at Sketch, London
31st December 2011 – 1st December 2012

Sketch, 9 Conduit Street, London, W1S 2XG

The Noise of Art entry list for this event is now full. If we’re not seeing you on the 31st we hope to see you very soon at our next events in 2012.

Noise of Art returns to the stunning party space at Sketch for NYE 2012, with a new immersive club event featuring music, art, film, performance, dance, surround projections and occurrences of curiosity.

On the 45th anniversary of the UK’s Psychedelic movement, Noise of Art’s new show is inspired by the 19th Century imagery of the late Sixties (think Blake’s iconic cover art and inner sleeve cut out moustaches). The immersive club event imagines that Sergeant Pepper, Pink Floyd and The Avengers were the result of two universes colliding in 1967; throwing people from a parallel steam punk world into the Carnaby Street scene of swinging London (which happens to be two minutes walk from the venue).

The resulting psychedelic Victoriana features DJs, coal-fired flower power, contemporary dancers, and folk singers, curiosities of nature and, visiting the capital for the very first time, the drawing room disco that is a Benefit For Mr Kite, and 360 degree magic lanterns of psychedelic imagery.

Musical acts will begin with Sixties folktronics, and rise to steam-powered cosmic house, psyched-out-disco and coal-fired techno.

 

“When it comes to mega multimedia events, Ben Osborne and his collective, Noise of Art, are all over it.” Time Out“… plenty of great music and top visuals for your dollar.” CMU
“Unique venues… and quality electronica” iDJ
“The idea’s brilliant” FACT
“… bound to free the crowd from any… torpor.” The Guardian
“This gets a very big Londonist thumbs up.” The Londonist
“You’re unlikely to attend another event in London like this, so our advice is to get your ticket sharpish.” DJ Magazine

Noise of Art’s Attack The Block – Party at Latitude

by on Jun.25, 2011, under Events

aluna_latitude_2010

Noise of Art will launch its new show, Attack The Block – Party, at this year’s Latitude Frestival, 14-17 July 2011, with a mega line up of electronic music, including.

Xpress 2 // Si Begg //  Lighthouses // AutoKratz // Dec Shoes // Ben Osborne // Overlap // Prick Image // The People Pile // Mark Scott Wood // visuals// performance artists and more

Noise of Art will continue its evolving steam punk sci-fi journey, UFO, at Latitude with ‘Attack The Block – Party’, a new chapter loosley inspired by Joe Cornish’s recently released film and Suffolk’s UFO Rendlesham incident.

Connecting the Seventies, an era of classic sci-fi imagery and New York’s seminal disco Block Parties – with today’s club scene, ‘Attack The Block – Party’ features a disco-tech sound track from some of the most revered pioneers in electronic music, alongside some of the newest arrivals.

Visual contributions come from hot club and up-and-coming street and gallery artists, while a troupe of contemporary dancers and performances artists complete the sensory immersion.

X-Press 2 are best known for their 2002 hit UK single, ‘Lazy’. Comprising of DJs Rocky and Diesel (aka Problem Kids/ Ballistic Brothers). Their first single, “Say What,” peaked at number 32 in the U.K. chart in October 1993. Further club hits were followed in 2002 with the top 10 deep house hit single “Lazy”, featuring Talking Heads’ David Byrne. Their third album, featuring a number of yet to be announced cool collaborations, is due to be released on Skint later this summer.

Si Begg is a highly original producer and inspiration to both the dub step/ London bass and new disco scenes. He’s also recorded music for films, television and advertisements and sound design for television channels, including the BBC, Channel 4 and MTV.

Autokratz were first spotted by French label Kitsuné. Based in London, AutoKratz made their LP debut in 2009 with Animal. They regularly feature on the annual series of Kitsuné Maison compilations, starting with the inclusion of “Pardon Garçon” on the fifth volume in 2007. AutoKratz have also remixed tracks by artists such as Underworld, Fischerspooner and La Roux.

Lighthouses have been variously described as “Bloc Party meets Justice”, “Daft Punk crossed with Soulwax” “Death from Above versus Delphic”… The real lighthouse at Orford Ness, near the Latitude site, has frequently been used to explain away the strange radiation and flashing lights during the UFO sighting at Rendlesham in 1980. This has nothing to do with the Lighthouses playing our UFO event. But according to loads of predictions, they’re expected to fly.

Dec Shoes formed when the core duo collaborated to write and perform a soundtrack for Noise of Art’s show at Latitude last year. A couple of months after they were asked to play a gig at London’s Southbank Centre, followed by a serries of small club appearances. This has lead to their first festival appearances in Europe and being invited to play on top of BT Tower to celebrate the Olympics.

Surrounding the music, Noise of Art collaborators Mark Scott Wood and Friends, Prick Image, Overlap and The People Pile will immerse the audience in specially created sci fi imagery, interactive performance, solar landscapes, lunar missions, UFO landings and extraordinary creatures.

Meanwhile Noise of Art founder and DJ Ben Osborne will be joining the dots.

Severino Vs Ben Osborne
Momo, 25-27 Heddon Street, London, W1B 4BH.
10pm – 4 am
Free entry all night. (noiseofart@gmail.com for details)
After a series of packed out, mayhemic one-offs, DJs Severino and Ben Osborne swing back into this fashionable hideaway for another party mash-up. Osborne-Severino forays here cause sweet chaos as they mix from everything into anything (Seventies funk rock to glitched disco, jackin’ Chicago house, drum n bass and bin munching b-lines), and regularly have them dancing on the tables. Even the doormen join in for the “one more tune” chorus.
