Toast Underground Basement Party feat Mark Henning & Dan Farserelli photo gallery
2012 starts a new chapter at Toast as we start our new project Toast Underground. We will be moving into our new home The Camp Basement in Shoreditch where we will be throwing a party every 2 months with some of the Scenes best DJ's from London & Europe.
Our Undergroun...d opening party has 2 very special guests to help us kick things off... Mark Henning (Some, Cityfox) & Dan Farserelli (Luna D.E.S)
The residents will of course be in attendance with Steve Shorter & Ian Grimwood going back to back to warm things up.
London's Mark Henning has risen up as one of the underground's true players - recording for a volley of acclaimed international labels. Having released his debut album on the legendary UK institute Soma Recordings in the summer of 2008 to great acclaim, he's busy DJing and touring his Live PA all over the world (from Australia to Japan, Russia to the USA). He also holds a residency at the HOME events near Frankfurt in Germany.
Mark Henning's sound sits somewhere between house and techno, with a healthy dose of groove, funk, swing, deepness and wierdness - all the required ingredients to make people freak out and bust crazy moves on the dancefloor. He has established his artist career not just through his productions - on labels such as Soma, Frankie, Clink, Cynosure, Hypercolour, Trapez, Freude am Tanzen and Einmaleins - but also through his worldwide performances (having been booked at clubs such as Fabric, Watergate, Privilege, Bar 25, The Egg, Panorama Bar, Space, The Arches and Harry Klein to name just a few).
His tracks have been licensed to recent BUGGED OUT, FABRIC and M-NUS compilations - and as well as achieving regular airplay on radio stations worldwide. He's a much respected producer in the scene and his records have been supported and played out regularly over the past few years by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Akufen, Steve Bug, Loco Dice and Richie Hawtin. As a remixer, he also keeps busy - having reworked tracks by artists such as Gaetano Parisio, Mr. G, Lee Jones, Tigerskin and Chris Fortier.
Born in 1977 to English and German parents, he has spent most of his life in England, though has never forgotten his German techno roots and has recently relocated to Berlin.
Wether spinning deep house, techno or minimal, Dan Farserelli's style of hypnotising loops, stripped back drums and subby blines always shines through. A total vinyl junkie he believes in digging deep for the music he loves and plays. The past year has seen him release on Luna Records, Phobic Records aswell as gracing the turntables at locations ranging from Room 1 at Fabric to the most intimate underground warehouse spaces. He is one part of deep.end the fast rising london collective and we're told has another project under his belt which will all be revealed into 2012.
