Following November's blinding Rendezvous with the mighty Lee Foss, our next date is looking just as tasty...
Robert James is one of a new breed of artists that hail from the city of Leeds, the UK's second key stronghold of underground house and techno outside the Capital. While he made his name DJing around the city and in Ibiza his career exploded exponentially this summer after his debut release ‘Sleep Moods’ dropped on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ new Hot Creations label.
His sound is completely unique, born from a strong sense of groove born from summers spent on the dance floor at DC10 in Ibiza and a healthy ambition to turn house music on its head. He effortlessly creates music aimed squarely at the dance floor that is distinct, infectious and appeals as much to the head and the heart as it does the feet.
For the last two years Rob has been regular fixture at clubs like The Mint Club and My House in Leeds, the Zoo Project and Space in Ibiza and the Rainbow in Birmingham.
Rob recently teamed up with Burnski to unleash an absolute corker of release titled 'Malibu EP' also on Hot Creations. Following this, his diary has exploded with incoming bookings from as far afield as Moscow and the US. These gigs and others have seen him play alongside the likes of Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Layo and Bushwacka, Clive Henry and Dyed Soundorom to name a few. You better get used to hearing his name as 2011 is set to be his biggest year yet.
Joining Rob we have the usual support from the Rendezvous residents. We're also delighted to announce that Cheap Picasso (Adam le Chic & SlimWhiteTrash) are taking the reins in the bar and providing us with their own interpretation of disco/80s synths/house.
Door Tax: £8 all night
Keep your eyes peeled for Rendezvous' 1st Birthday announcement...it's a biggy.
