Following its packed-out debut at Shoreditch’s new two floor nightclub, Bedroom Bar, RE:PLAY returns with special guest MARK MOORE and host DJ Ben Osborne.
Featuring only one seminal guest DJ each month, RE:PLAY is a back to basics club night that gives guest DJs 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 won’t be announced before the night.
The second guest DJ is one of London’s longest serving and most inspirational DJs.
Mark Moore shot to fame as the driving force behind Eighties electronic pioneers S’EXPRESS and his number one hit ‘The Theme from S-Express’. But to most clubbers today his notoriety owes more to his unique and eclectic DJ skills, than his string of hit records and remixes.
Moore’s pedigree in London’s DJ culture is unparalleled. He started DJing at Philip Salon’s ground-breaking MUD Club – a residency he held for over five years, before being offered a slot at Heaven’s PYRAMID night. There, alongside Colin Favor and Evil Eddie Richards, Moore was one of London’s first exponents of Chicago house and Detroit techno music.
In acid house’s heyday, 1988, ‘The Theme From S-Express‘, written with co-producer Pascal Gabriel – shot to number one across most of the world. But Moore’s rise also saw him bring many others into the limelight.
For his first album Mark worked with a new singer called Billie Ray Martin. He then sought out his favourite producer, a little-known William Orbit. Both went on to become stars.
On his second LP he introduced Sonique and an undiscovered Carl Craig. Sonique became one of the world’s most successful female DJs and a successful solo artist, while many consider Craig Detroit’s finest techno producer.
Over the years Mark has indulged in a huge number of projects, from writing and art projects, to running labels. He was probably the first DJ pop star and ‘Theme From S-Express’ certainly brought UK house to the nation’s homes.
Mark still travels the globe playing electro-disco, twisted house, neo techno and whatever else he fancies to express himself as a most extraordinary DJ.
None of which will help guess what he’ll play at Re:PLAY.
