Re:Play, the new club night from Noise of Art founder and resident DJ Ben Osborne, invites just one seminal guest DJ each month.

This month sees Diesel, half of DJ duo Rocky and Diesel and Xpress 2, join Ben on the checks for a carnival special.

Born out the UK’s Balearic DJ movement, Diesel’s earliest influences were warehouse parties where rare groove, soul, jazz, go-go and hip hop music were mixed together.

Following the arrival of Acid house, Diesel became a core member of Xpress 2 and one of the pioneers of UK house, responsible for early Nineties underground anthems such as ‘Muzik Express’, ‘London X Press’ and ‘Why Not?’.

Meanwhile, as part of the Ballistic Brothers, Diesel had helped shape the downbeat sound of trip hop.

By the turn of the Millennium Xpress 2’s deep house sound had risen from the underground to the top of the UK charts, scoring hits with classics such ‘Lazy’, featuring David Byrne of Talking Heads, and ‘Give It’, with vocalist Kurt Wagner of Lambchop.

His most recent LP, last year’s The House of Xpress 2, saw Diesel, and partner Rocky, update their trademark sound with new influences drawn form their globe trotting DJing activity. Meanwhile their Thursday evening show for Ministry Radio sees Xpress 2 continue to steer a pathway through 21st century house music of all genres.

Which period Diesel will revisit at Re:Play is anyone’s guess.

Resident and long standing London DJ, Ben Osborne, will be mixing the genres and periods in sets either side of Diesel, to keep spotters and dancers on their toes.

Re:Play gives guest and resident DJ space to express themselves in full length sets – with one twist. During the set the guest DJ will play a section of music from a particular point in their career. The period selected isn’t announced before the night.

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

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.
