Abovezero & Cartulis Day Pres: Olympic BBQ with Luke Solomon Alex Celler photo gallery
For the last installment of this Olympic summer Above Zero joins forces with Cartuli’s Day to throw their biggest party yet. Taking place on the amazing ground floor and terrace of The Light Bar, this is set to be a very special party full of magic and friends. Kicking off at midday, there will be BBQ on the terrace included on your entry ticket (until end of stock), so if you want to try our butcher’s selection please arrive early to grab a bite.
On the musical menu we have in stock some very good friends of the house as starters: Thanksmate from WhiteJail & Elek-Fun from the Leading Astray crew, with our very own residents on the side: Unai Trotti, Roberto Amo, Disandat. For the mains we have a very well aged and rather tasty Luke Solomon spiced with the finest essence of Alex Celler. Get your musical tastebuds to be inspired by this unique recipe.
Advance tickets are now on sale for £8 at resident advisor. Remember includes a free meal:
Finally the sun has come to London together with the Olympic Games and to celebrate Above Zero with Cartuli's Day bring you the best way:

No-one could debate Luke Solomon’s dance music credentials. From setting up the seminal label Classic Recordings with Derrick Carter to taking quirky house to the UK Top 10 and international charts, with his band Freaks, to DJing around the globe and performing live, Luke has been there for many of the more interesting 4/4 moments of the last decade.
A gig with Derrick Carter in the 90s led the two to become friends, after which Classic Recordings was born. For 9 years, the label introduced the world to the likes of DJ Sneak, Tiefschwarz, Isolee and Freeform 5 and garnered a cult following.
As freaks Luke has had a UK top ten also found themselves remixing the likes of Alison Limerick, Pulp, Damon Alban, Kasabian, The Streets & Duran Duran.
As a solo artist he has had releases on a variety of labels to include the very respected Crosstown Rebels. His 1st artist album “The Difference Engine” was released in 2008 on Radio Slave’s much applauded Rekids label to much acclaim. This album led Luke to team up with Damian Lazarus on his own artist album and Luke co-wrote and co-produced a selection of tracks.
Luke continues to DJ around the world at the likes of Panorama Bar, Fabric, D-Edge and this year will be releasing new material from Freaks, and a second album as a solo artist.
Luke's credentials are most certainly not to be argued with. We can’t wait for him to blow the roof of Light Bar.

A Greek national by right but a Londoner by choice, Alexs distinctive DJ style hints towards an obsessive attitude to crate digging playing out an impressive blend of rare, old and modern tracks, his precise intuition for the right record on the dancefloor mirrors his own love of the party atmosphere.
Durable productions and mood-changing DJ sets have seen Alex feature as guest around the globe at respected parties at Ibiza's Underground, DC10, Amnesia and Space as well as others including Trouw (Amsterdam), Studio Martin (Bucharest), Arma 17 (Moscow), Amnesia (Milan) and at home in London - where he has become a main player in the citys underground house scene, guesting regularly at Fabric.
