7 Year Itch – Friday 20 January
Slipped Disco kicks off its celebration of seven years of forward thinking music with a night of seminal DJs and up-and-coming bands.
DIESEL + JUSTIN ROBERTSON + BEN OSBORNE + BLEEDING HEART NARRATIVE + KEVIN PEARCE BAND + FRED’S HOUSE + RYAN KEEN + PETER HEPWORTH
93 Feet East
150 Brick Lane
7pm-1am FREE entry all night
Split over two rooms, a live room and a club room, and featuring everything from bumping b-line house to live electronica, alt folk and deep techno. The DJ line-up sees Justin Robertson (Madchester mainstay and Lion Rock founder) and Diesel, half of Xpress 2 (who release their first album in five years in January 2012), spin alongside resident DJ Ben Osborne.
The live room is a double header, as Bleeding Heart Narrative, who’ve been turning heads with their Brain Love released Bison mini LP, are joined by hot new electronic talent, Kevin Pearce, whose debut single, Don’t Fall Down, has just been chosen for Music Week’s best of 2011 CD. Expect to hear a lot more from these two acts in 2012.
Singer songwriter Ryan Keen is another act whos threatening to breakthrough this year, as is Cambridge based Fred’s House, whose vocal harmonies take their cue from the late Sixties. Starting off the live music on the night will be East-Anglian troubadour Peter Hepworth.
