Following a day of music and art events at Battersea Park, Noise of Art and Trees For Cities continue the Metiss’age activities with a night of electronic music, surround visuals, costumed contemporary dancers and immersive clubbing.
The evening sees pioneering deep house maestro, Peter Kruder, making a rare London appearance. Kruder rose to prominence as half of Kruder and Dorfmiester in the mid Nineties, and has continually contributed to electronic music’s evolution through deep house and broken beat. His DJ sets are both imaginative and floor shaking.
Kruder is joined by Si Begg, a similarly influential and restless musical soul, and Ashley Beedle, whose never ending projects and pseudonyms (including Black Science Orchestra, Dark Star, Delta House of Funk and X Press 2) have seen him continually re-define house, neo-soul, reggae, acid jazz and psychedelic funk. New act Dec shoes are a vinyl and vocal double act who’ve been raising the temperature at festivals and low ceilinged clubs throughout the summer. Producer and DJ, Portfolio, cut his teeth as resident DJ at Singapore’s celebrated Zouk club. Having recently moved to London, his new sound has become darker and deeper and has already been picked-up for compilations by Steve Lawler, amongst others. David Jenkinson has been busy exporting his C21 club around the world, but tonight returns to his home turf, while Trees For Cities regular Rupert the Brewer will be bringing his collection of smouldering funk to the table. Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne will deliver a trademark round of roof and floor bumping music.
Completing the immersive club experience there will be surround visuals, performance art and spectacular contemporary dance pieces provided by Noise of Art’s regular contributors Your Mum, Overlap and The People Pile, plus an alien anti-fashion show by artist Mark Scott Wood.
Money raised from the event will go to Trees for Cities to plant Metiss’age trees in inner cities.
Metiss’age is supported by the cultural programme of the European Union.
