Seven Year Itch Part two
Line-up // Justin Robertson// Ben Osborne// Kal Lavelle// Kevin Pearce Band// Woolfette// Peter Hepworth// Tiny Dragons// The Art Works// Mystic Rock// Rupert The Brewer
Slipped Disco continues its series of eclectic events celebrating seven years of cross genre clubbing, with a second night of DJs and up-and-coming acts at 93 Feet East.
Split over two rooms, a live room and a club room, and featuring everything from bumping b-line house and cosmic disco to live electronica, folktronica and deep techno.
The first 7 Year Itch in January featured a new singer called Ryan Keen, who has since been garnering a shed-load of Radio 1 airplay. This month’s line-up sees Justin Robertson (Madchester mainstay and Lion Rock founder) return to spin alongside Slipped Disco resident and Noise of Art founder, DJ Ben Osborne, DJ Rupert The brewer and Mystic Rock.
The Live room features three up-and-coming female vocal talents. Irish singer Kal Lavell is a one of Ed Sheeran’s favoured support acts. Her vocal dexterity has also been noted by several dance acts, including Artful, who asked her to sing on their “It Must Be The Bassline” single.
Tiny Dragons are a female fronted Brighton based teen band that’ve been stunning all who’ve seen them with their precocious talent. Their sound takes in everything from funk ridden grooves to spaced-out prog rock.
Although she has so far only released one EP, Wolfette has been grabbing a load of attention with her infectious electronic dance music. Her second release is out in late March and is destined to see her acclaim rise further.
Kevin Pearce blends songwriting with electronica, creating a sound reminiscent of early Nineties downbeat acts such as Portishead. He’s being tipped as an act to watch out for in 2012 by Music Week.
The Art Works are an old school trad folk duo who stumbled into an armoury of effects peddles and accidently morphed into something more Balearic. Their sound is not quite like anything you’ve heard before.
