Red Bull Music Academy presents Kerri Chandler & San Soda photo gallery
The long-standing partnership between Red Bull Music Academy and Brixton’s Plan B continues on March 31st with huge house session south of the river. The inimitable Kerri Chandler will be performing an ‘All Night Long’ 7 hour set in the main room, a rare treat in such an intimate space. Headlining in the basement will be one half of Belgian house duo FCL and white-hot one-to-watch San Soda, Red Bull Music Academy alumni (Barcelona 2008). Few in the industry can rival the artistic reputation and career longevity of Kerri Chandler.
With an unfathomable back catalogue, he has been an essential producer for over 20 years, carving out his own place at the forefront of club culture. Effortlessly blending old and new sounds, Kerri’s prolific output has found it’s way on to countless credible imprints including Shelter, Mad House and King Street Sounds to name but three. Not just turning up to spin but commandeering the booth for the whole night is set to be very special occasion.
Belgian duo San Soda and Red D (also known as FCL) have been turning heads all over Europe with their refreshing brand of house music. Releasing under the aptly named ‘We Play House’ label, their sometimes deep always soulful productions have caught the attention of discerning house lovers across the globe. Deservingly winning nods of approval from all the right places, San Soda has gone on to earn high profile bookings at the likes Fabric, Panorama Bar and Sonar.
