2011 will be an exciting year for Lost Dawn as we diversify our events and bring you a host of smaller parties - for that intimate vibe and up close action with our guest DJ’s. West Londons’ hottest new venue Raving Buddha will be our home for the first of our Lost Dawn presents ‘Boutique’ events on the 26th March 2011
Our ‘Boutique’ headline act is master producer and DJ of Global Underground fame STU HIRST. After a successful NYE gig for GU in Singapore Stu brings his brand of uplifting progressive madness to Lost Dawn.
Winning DJ Magazine's Mix competition, DJ'ing at the Space Ibiza Closing Party and signing to Steve Lawler's Harlem label, all within a month of each other in 2003, signalled Stu Hirst's arrival on the electronic music scene. Since then, Stu has gone on to become an international touring DJ and prolific producer of some stature, having released on some of the most important labels in dance music and appearing at some of the finest clubs on the planet.
Stu is best known for his affiliation to Global Underground, a brand which needs no introduction. He came to GU via his first smash hit “Rhythmique”, which was a favourite of Pete Tong on Radio 1 and became Steve Lawler's signature closing record (which he still often finishes with to this day). Lawler used it to close the final instalment of the Lights Out series for GU and the association continued, with Stu becoming one of the central artists on the GU roster, hosting GU's flagship Ministry Of Sound Radio Show fortnightly.
He has released for a host of other leading labels, such as CR2, Toolroom, VIVA Music, Plastic Fantastic, Subversive, Distinctive, Punx, Mirabilis, Baroque & many more.
Stu has appeared at some of the finest clubs in the World, including appearances at three Closing Parties for the mighty Space in Ibiza, Global Club in Lithuania, Amsterdam Dance Conference and many more, including La Mania (Romania), Privilege (Ibiza), Nautilus (Latvia), Gravity (Lithuania), Piekarnia (Poland), Ministry Of Sound, The Cross, Heaven, Turnmills and many more. In 2006, Stu mixed the covermount CD for Baltic dance and lifestyle magazine “Flash", and toured Eastern Europe to promote the mix. 2009 saw Stu headline the largest festival in the Baltics - the Baltic Beach Festival and 2010 saw Stu tour South Africa during the FIFA World Cup, finishing 2010 in Singapore.
KITES star Richard Baldwin aka Stakker has been a lifelong devotee of electronica. He has played at, and promoted events showcasing many dance genres but more recently has been co-writing and producing tracks with upcoming Indie/Electro band, KITES. Since the band's first gig 8 months ago, Richard has enjoyed a hectic schedule, playing keyboards with the band at over 40 gigs across the UK. From this colourful background, Richard spins the kind of sounds that have in turn come to influence KITES' sound, expect something different...ItaloDisco, Electro, Synthpop, Acid and Proto-House
‘Boutique’ also sees the first officially installed set from our new resident TOM GALLAGHER. Having produced some stand-out sets for us in 2010 we wanted this new young talent to pioneer our sound with his sense of smooth tech house produced from his myriad of live performance technology. Expect original samples and slices from this future hero.
Our main residents ADAM SYMBIOSIS and CRAIG GUNN will be also spinning their popular uplifting beats. Adam with his trademark bouncy sets of vocal blissed out driving trance and electro Craig’s progressive disco diva style going into overdrive as he celebrates his birthday with us. Expect cake and more…..
Our ARTS curator ELLIE HAWKINS will also be in attendance overseeing original projections for our screen, live art and magic from the ever memorable SAM COOKNEY.
We will also be featuring our 2011 DJ Competition Winner David Cardoso so come lend your support to this truly eclectic night out in Shepherd’s Bush. 26th March 2011 is a date your should firmly fix in your calendar now…..Lost Dawn….Find Yours…..
