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)

National Maritime Museum presents:
Noise of Art: Traders Unpacked
Thursday 6 October
Free 6pm 10pm

National Maritime Museum, Romney Road, Greenwich, London SE10 9NF Free, 6-10pm.

DJ Ritu (Kali), DJ Rita Ray (The Shrine), DJ Ben Osborne, Portfolio, Jason Singh, The People Pile, The City Sea Shanty Band, Dec Shoes, Your Mum, Avaes Mohammed, T.J Jeffrey, Cosmic Onion Field, Strap On.

Opening the Traders Unpacked season in the new high tech East India Gallery and new wing of the NMM, Noise of Art takes inspiration from the way Eastern sea routes have brought new cultures into London, and changed our art, music, film and clubs.

The programme sees two of London’s longest running club nights unite, as DJ Ritu, of London South Asian club Kali and BBC Radio, lines-up alongside Rita Ray, of the influential London African club, Shrine.

Singaporean act Portfolio will be playing deep house (the East India Company established its first base in Singapore), alongside the Afro -Indian singer of Dec Shoes. Japanese fronted Krautrock act Cosmic Onion Field will add live music, while Overlap unveils the new version of an evolving film-as-art portrait of Anna Mae Wong – the first Chinese film star, who made her debut in a film set in nightclubs in the 1920s in the East London docks.

Sikh beat-boxer Jason Singh, who started working with film after winning a PRS for Music Foundation Award in 2010, is creating a new collaborative work, with poet Avaes Mohammed and film maker T.J Jeffrey, specially for the night.

East London’s finest salty sea dogs, The City Sea Shanty Band, singing the odd song about bottles of rum. Contemporary dancers The People Pile will be performing a themed piece and 360 degree projectionists Your Mum and mobile movie projector Strap On will be adding their unique imagery… and more.
