Line-up /Dave Kendrick, Nadia Ksaiba, DJ Sveta, El Nino Diablo
It’s summertime and DICK AND FANNY, the club night for homosexuals of all persuasions , is back for its sweltering July outing on Saturday, 14th July at CAMP Basement. Our sizzling midsummer line up includes DAVE KENDRICK (MACHO CITY), NADIA KSAIBA, DJ SVETA (AUSTRALIA) and EL NINO DIABLO. As usual they’ll be supplying the Dick and Fanny crowd of lesbians, gays, trannies and their admirers with a tasty mix of classic house and techno, hi-NRG, disco and a healthy helping of 90s dance hits.
DAVE KENDRICK started his djing career back in 1984 in a room above an Hell’s Angels pub in Lincolnshire. From there he moved on to become a resident at infamous Manchester clubs The Hacienda and Paradise Factory. Dave has played clubs as far afield as Russia but is probably best known for his East London Thursday night party Macho City at the Joiners Arms which just recently finished its four year run. Dave has also played at a variety of London venues and club nights including Dalston Superstore, Vogue Fabrics, Disco Bloodbath, Carpet Burn, Club Butt, Dirtbox and many more.
NADIA KSAIBA is quite extraordinarily difficult. A skill she picked up as a regular at seminal Monday nighter Trash. There she met resident Rory Phillips with whom she started the highly influential Did We Mention Our Disco which ran from 2003-2008 and played host to guests from Prins Thomas to 2Many DJs and Lindstrom to Erol Alkan. Word quickly spread about Nadia’s skills and soon enough she was picking up gigs as tour DJ for the The Klaxons, Simian Mobile Disco and Soulwax; and getting booked to bring her unique sound all over the UK and Europe. She has played at some of the most influential and musically credible nightspots including Bugged Out, Fabric, Return To New York, Disco Bloodbath, Bestival, Field Day, Adventures In The Beetroot Field, Trailer Trash and Optimo.
From Russia with love, lust and all points between – prepare for the deliciously diverse dissident DJ from Sydney via Odessa: Ms. Sveta Gilerman a.k.a. DJ SVETA. Sveta began her career as a radio DJ on underground community radio station has since gone on to play clubs all over Australia, Europe, Asia and North America. She has played alongside Kim Ann Foxman, Calvin Harris, Ladyhawke, Junior Vasquez and JD Samson amongst many others and was the opening DJ for Peaches at her Big Day Out shows in 2010. She has programmed and performed for Australian designer Alex Perry’s Sydney Fashion Week shows and has played clubs including London’s DTPM and Torture Garden and parties in NYC from Mr Black to Hiro and The Cock.
EL NINO DIABLO has been playing clubs in London including Trade, Coco Latte, Salvation, Beyond and DTPM. He has also djed anything from London Fashion Week shows to private parties and film and record launches. In his day job he runs a music PR company of the same name where he has been representing STRUT, !K7, Horse Meat Disco, Disco Discharge, Mark Stewart, Brandt Brauer Frick and lots more for a decade.
