** NEW VENUE _ LOFT PARTY_GUESTLIST ONLY **
Limited capacity, please email email@example.com with names.
Having swerved the bitter cold months, we are back with something a little spring fresh and different...
As one of the last parties in a space we have been dying to get our hands on before it is overhauled, On the Rocks Studios will play host to our first truly live act…
Local face and friend, Alexander Kaas of Moscow fame will be representing alongside the sweet vocal tones of partner in crime Morgan Mackintosh. And headlining will be impeccable German import and house music’s wunderkind, Manuel Tur.
Despite his young age, Manuel Tur is certainly no new face to the scene, making waves since the age of 16. Having picked up numerous plaudits and awards along the way, his highly acclaimed debut album was released in 2009 on one of our favourite labels, UK heavyweight, Freerange. Combining fistfuls of disco, deep house and a certain US soulful flavour, 0201 demonstrated a truly rich and varied work. Having since formed the Mild Pitch label with fellow Essen natives Langenberg and DPlay and the live duo, Ribn with the former, 2 years on, Manuel is gearing up for round two. 'Most of this moment' is the brand new single from his eagerly anticipated follow up LP and takes its appeal from just about any dancefloor under its number of different treatments, including the hotly tipped white label courtesy of the legendary Isolee, found in treasured record boxes the world over and already touted as one of the singles of the year.
Alexander Kaas & Morgan Mackintosh
This exciting duo will be debuting their live show exclusively at Simmer. Marked down as a breakthrough act to watch in 2011, the pair have shied any public attention and have been honing and cultivating their sound and performance specially to launch for this nascent show. Fusing influences from across the spectrum of vocal led electronica (post-this, future-that) their songs ride the new wave of imaginative, genre-less productions emanating out of all the various UK electronic scenes at present. Despite their humble tendency to keep a low-profile, a couple of tracks and remixes were leaked earlier in the year and were instantly championed by the likes of Adam Marshall, Visonquest, Jozif, Craig Richards and Kevin Griffiths.
