Wolf + Lamb Showcase
Saturday 18th Septmber
The Mint Club
Louche bring you a very special line up for our reopening party. This September we welcome one half of Wolf & Lamb Gadi Mizrahi, his label artist Le Loup & men of the moment Art Department for their amazing Live show to the Mint Club.
Wolf + Lamb Records was born at the turn of the millennium, when Gadi met the label's co-owner Zev Eisenberg. Together they had a clear vision of what they wanted to create; a label which broke the mould, and an outlet to release their own, then unique, brand of house music. Twelve years on and the label is now at the very forefront of the electronic scene; Resident Advisor named it the #3 label of the year last year. Such modern artists as Soul Clap, Nicolas Jaar and Lee Foss owe much to W + L, having some of their first releases on the label, kick starting their blossoming careers.
As a producer and as a DJ, Gadi's devious style of house has earned him international praise and gigs at clubs like Fabric, Watergate and Club der Visionaire. When producing as Wolf + Lamb with Zev or working solo, Gadi shows a refined understanding of how to make a party move with sounds that are ceaselessly deep, weird and totally fresh. His solo releases on labels such as Simple Records or more recently his album "Love Somone" as production duo Wolf + Lamb have been some of the finest releases of the year. As well as all this he finds time to put together one of the most talked about events in NYC where Wolf + Lamb artists and extended family get together for the special label party held at The Marcy Hotel. With such prolific work as an artist, label boss & party starter Gadi Mizrahi is currently one of electronic music's most influential trendsetters.
Supporting is Frenchman Leonard Perret AKA Le Loup, who is no stranger to W + L, having released his See Line EP back in May 2009, and has since composed a string of remixes for the label. The young Parisien developed an early taste for music, discovering the joy of DJing and crate digging for rare records when he was just sixteen. He studied sound engineering at the Institut Supérieur des Techniciens du Son in Paris, where he learnt to fuze his influences together into what is undoubtedly Le Loup's sound today; a tribute to artists from Nina Simone to Moodymann, from Marvin Gaye to Daniel Bell. Le Loup tunes and edits have also been released on Eklo, Esperanza and Remake Musique, and with a busy touring schedule on the horizon, things are looking great for Leo.
And finally we are very proud to present men of the moment, fresh of the back of being signed to Crosstown Rebels, Art Department. The Canadian maestros Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow are blowing up big time, and are drawing plaudits from just about everyone; Simple label boss Will Saul called their live set "the best thing we've heard since we heard Matthew Jonson for the first time", after witnessing their exhilarating and ground breaking live set at WMC this year. He's not alone. A performance which consists of Jonny's sublime workings on a DJ setup, and Kenny's rich and soulful live vocals moved Soul Clap to hail them as "Making the best music on the planet right now", and their first release, featuring the deep, dark, synth-driven masterpiece "Without You" will surely be heard far beyond Mint's dancefloor over the coming months. They fly in to Europe this September for a handful of exclusive dates including Circoloco & of course Louche, make sure you come down to see without doubt, the hottest property in dance music.
