Time Flies. It seems like only yesterday that we were anxiously walking Andrew Weatherall in through the back of the DJ booth for our first event. Needless to say the people came and a proper party was had. Since then over the ensuing 2 years we’ve brought such talents as Seth Troxler, Magda, Jamie Jones, Ivan Smagghe, Maya Jane Coles to Stealth/Nottingham and many of those for the first time. We’ve watched a burgeoning house scene ignite in Nottingham and are proud to be a part of that. Thank you for coming!
Anyway, for this second birthday event we hope you’ll join us in anticipation for the appearance of two more DJ/Producers at the top of their game.
Deetron has almost surreptitiously been knocking out flawless house and techno for over a decade now and is that rare thing of being equally revered as a DJ as for his production skills. Early jazz and hip-hop influences have given his productions soul most akin with Detroit and he uses 3 turntables as standard. In 2011 Deetron further cemented his profile as a DJ extraordinaire with the release of his much lauded Balance CD as well as a touring schedule taking him to all four corners of the world. In addition, a string of successful and critically acclaimed remixes as well as his summer hit "Starblazer" landed him many a spot in the yearly polls.

SAN SODA is still a relative newcomer but has made such an impression in the last couple of years with his deeply soul inflected house music there are few that haven’t sat up and taken notice. Through releases on Red D’s We Play House imprint under San Soda and also FCL he’s been responsible for some of the deepest cuts of contemporary house and has played a significant role in the recent revival of proper house amongst a new generation. He recently teamed up with similarly youthful house aficionado Motor City Drum Ensemble for the sublime ‘Love Prescription’ EP on Delusions Of Grandeur.
