A little Bit More on our Guests
Born July 20, 1967 in Chicago, Boo Williams has been a part of the city's house music entourage since 1981. This was when he first stepped up to the turntables and started DJing. Later on in the 1990's, Boo began production and then later remixing in '93.
A healthy diet of Larry Heard, Marshall Jefferson, Frankie Knuckles, Ron Hardy, stirred the flames of the 4 to the floor beat that has remained well alive ever since. In these early days, childhood collaborator turned life-long friend, Glenn Underground was to play an important role in Boo's career.
The creative spark that emerged from their early collaboration contributed greatly to them becoming influential players in the Chicago dance scene and eventually way beyond . Boo Williams and his soulful, disco-edged brand of house right down to the tougher edged realms of house rocked, even closing a set for house legend Ron Hardy back in the day, The post 80’s acid and electronic sound of house was developing into one of a more soulful nature directly borrowing from its disco, funk and soul heritage and formulating the sub genres of house that we speak of to this day.
Boo has gone on to release some of the most essential house cuts on some the most revered labels such as Relief , Residual , Nitelife , Moods & Grooves , Guidance , Rush Hour &many more !!! Not to be missed !!!!!!!!!!
A friend of Süd and a perfectly well formed producer and a deadly dj Efdemin’s first ever London gig was back @ Süd in June 2007. A night that saw him play one of the finest sets we’d heard in a long while . He has since made plenty of returns to Süd . Those that made a sojourn to the recent addition of the Freerotation Festival would have gotten a taster of just what he is capable of. Efdemin is not only a great house dj but he is equally amazing and fully adept to playing a techno set .
Come the 2nd October he will be expertly blending house and techno.
Efdemin has recently been receiving props for his 2nd ace album on the much lauded Dial Records . An album titled “Chicago” – A reference & homage to the phenomenal contribution and impact Chicago has had on electronic music .
We are fully excited to welcome him back and are equally excited to have his company @ our 10th birthday!
Jitterbug is quite happy with not having too much of the spotlight on him
though his talents as both a dj and producer will no doubt bring him to the fore. His current and 2nd ever release on Uzuri has brought quite a fair bit of attention from some of the most revered dj’s out there .
His mix on Uzuri’s Soundcloud continues to bring him new fans each day ‘ clocking up over a 1000 listen’s within a day and a half .
When not in the studio .Jitterbug can be found behind the counter at a certain record shop in the west end of London or writing for the ace Infinite State Machine blog .
Rounding off the proceedings will be the trusted ressies in the form of Nick Craddock and Süd Electronic & Uzuri Recording’s head honcho , Lerato , aka Lakuti who will also be celebrating her birthday on the 2nd October!!!
Süd will be making a return to the ace Camp basement – a stone’s throw from Old Street tube. A raw basement space perfectly ripe for a proper knees up . A great sound system will be in place too on the night. Oh, did we mention that the party will be going until 8 am the next day !!!
Your company will be greatly appreciated at this landmark event.
Hope you can make it !!!
