FACT OFF-SONAR POOL PARTY WARM UP: Cristian Varela (Intec), Funk D'Void , Chymera (live), Antonio De Angelis, Rossko, Arnaud Le Texier ++
Following on from the fantastic FACT LDN opening party with Timo Maas, May 26th hosts part #2...
FACT are one of Spain's leading house/techno party collectives and are super busy over the Sonar weekend with some stunning events taking place. Amongst them are their legendary pool parties and this year they have 4 which include the Mobilee party (with Anja Schneider, Pan-Pot, Slam and more), the Get Physical party (with BookaShade, M.A.N.D.Y, Dj T, Maceo Plex, Catz 'N Dogz, Smash TV +more) and another featuring Seth Troxler, Guy Gerber (live), Craig Richards, Bill Patrick & many others.
On Saturday 26th May, they head to London for their OFF SONAR warm up bringing with them several very special guests...
room I: Intec Showcase
Cristian Varela needs little introduction. A global techno star and multi-award winning dj/producer who has not only released on some of the most prestigious electronic labels, he has also composed soundtracks for theatre, film and many shows. Renown for his turntable wizardry, his legendary 3 & 4 deck mixing further glossed his credentials. He headlines the Intec room where we guarantee dancefloor destruction...
The next guest representing Carl Cox's Intec label showcase is Jon Rundell. The Intec founder (Carl Cox) has always been a staunch purveyor and strong supporter of both Jon’s production work and DJ ability - his releases on Cristian Varela's Pornogrpahic Records, Umek’s 1605 label and Carlo Lio’s Rawthentic label have been hammered by stalwarts of the scene from Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Dubfire, Joris Vorn and Nic Fancuilli - “I don’t want to ram it down people’s necks in a contrived way. I like the music to do the talking and connect with people there and then. When I get the chance to play, I just make sure people have a great time.” Jon Rundell
Fact London, fuse & Cerca trova resident Rossko completes the bill alongside the Spanish Fact representatives, Roberto Martin & Turko...
room II: Outpost Showcase
Taking centre stage on the terrace is very special guest, Funk D Void. Another star who needs little intro, Funk D Void is a DJ and producer who has been at the forefront of the global electronic music scene since the mid-90s. House music changed his life, the early Chicago sound specifically, and hearing the certain sounds during his childhood stirred something inside him; the 808 drum machine used on Marvin Gaye's “Sexual Healing” secured his fascination with these electronic sounds – the turning point over to the Detroit techno sound was almost a spiritual moment as it forged his unique sound that would follow over the coming years – visceral, soulful and without compromise. After a string of hits over the years (“Jack Me Off”, “Bad Coffee” “Emotional Content”) plus some killer remixes for the likes of Underworld, New Order and Kevin Saunderson, he is probably best known for the end-of-nighter 'Diabla' which bridged house and techno (and was flogged by everyone from Danny Howells to Sven Vath). One of the finest DJ's around, we cant wait for him to cast his electronic spell on the 26th...
Up next is Irish born and Berlin based Chymera who lands in London with his special live show. He has released on various diverse and respected labels such as Delsin, Ovum, Connaisseur, NRK, Cocoon, Figure and Komplex De Deep. Also a live performer for almost as long as he has been making music so it's no surprise that his energetic live set is highly sought after and has brought him to many of the world's top clubs around the world. He's been super busy working on his new album "Death By Misadventure" which is released the week after this party on Connaisseur Recordings. A proper 'album' experience from start to finish, it showcases a more introspective and wide ranging side to his musical oeuvre. Expect something very special...
Our next dynamic duo have been setting London alight with emphatic sets at the Capitals hottest spots as well as producing some stunning material. Currently smashing the One More parties every month, we look forward to Antonio De Angelis (Safari Electronique / One More / Viva Music) & Arnaud Le Texier (Safari Electronique / Cocoon / Melt Music) serenading the terrace...
room III: cK Family Vs Malatoid Records
And in the loft, we welcome back cK Family Vs Malatoid Records to cause a musical riot: Lucio & Pep, Joseph Petrin, Lucio Malatoid & Diego cK Family create the party within a party...
And finally in room 4, the London Spanish connection takeover with a very special secret guest, Chicone (Juno Records), Synthnat (warehouse) & Marta Del Valle (Finest Cut Records) conducting proceedings...
The final special guests will be announced soon, stay tuned for final details... We hope to see you there!
