by on Oct.10, 2013, under Events


This month Slipped Disco’s event at the Hayward Gallery takes place on the last weekend of BFI’s London Film Festival and, fittingly, it will be celebrating the launch of new magazine So Film.

The night, on Friday 18 October, will see Chris Airplays join Noise of Art’s Ben Osborne on the decks, mixing film scores into the usual blend of all things dance floor, while free copies of the magazine, fresh off the press, will be distributed to the crowd.

Meanwhile details of the next Noise of Art events in Manchester, The End Festival, Big Chill Bar and National Portrait Gallery will be announced very soon.

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)

Noise of Art and Sound and Music launch Kindertransport, an audio-visual installation and sculpture by Ralph Koltai CBE and Ben Osborne on 15 April at the British Film Institute Southbank, London.

Inspired by the mission which rescued 10,000 mostly Jewish children from German occupied Europe in 1938 – 1940, the artwork will tour the European departure points and the UK. Amongst the children saved from death in Nazi concentration camps were important post war figures, including prominant artists, scientists, philanthropists, directors and musicians.

The sculpture is created by Ralph Koltai CBE, a celebrated set designer, artist and Kindertransport survivor. He has been credited for innovating post war British set design.

The project is conceived by Ben Osborne, a Musician, DJ and writer, who is currently participating in the cross platform New Music Plus Award scheme.

Audio visuals for the launch have been created by Fred Deakin, (musician, graphic artist and half of Mercury prize nominated band Lemon Jelly), Overlap (a duo made-up of  fine artist Michael Denton and animated image artist Anna McCrickard) and Ben Osborne.
