Following its packed-out sessions with Severino, Mark Moore and Martin Brodin, Re:Play returns to Shoreditch’s new two floor nightclub, Bedroom Bar, with special guest JUSTIN ROBERTSON 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.
A DJs DJ and respected producer, Justin Robertson’s career in dance music goes back to the Madchester era, when he span at clubs such as Spice and Most Excellent, clubs frequented by two lads called Tom and Ed who would later become The Chemical Brothers.
Having shifted back South to London, Robertson’s career has also seen him constantly shift rolls as DJ, producer and lead singer of bands such as Lion Rock and Thee Earls. His latest project is Deadstock 33s.
His music style is just as varied, having championed the new Balearic movement, as well as Big Beat and house and techno music. As a DJ, Justin always wears many hats – both literally and metaphorically. Depending on the night you’ll hear him delve into disco rarities, acidic techno, Chicago house, Balearic classics, reggae, northern soul and pop.
In the studio, Robertson has reworked Bjork, Felix Da Housecat, Chicken Lips, Stopmakingme, Fatboy Slim and many more.
