For our second party this month we have a triple whammy of headline guests.
For those who like it melodic and hypnotic, EWAN PEARSON will be opening the peak time batting. Ewan has been making records since 1995 under aliases like Maas (Soma), World of Apples and currently Partial Arts for Cologne's mighty Kompakt. Once described as 'remixer du jour', he is famous for bringing his magic remix touch to the likes of Depeche Mode, Chemical Brothers, Seelenluft, Goldfrapp, Cortney Tidwell, Foals and Junior Boys. His production credits include Delphic’s ‘Acolyte’, Tracey Thorn’s solo albums ‘Out Of The Woods’ and ‘Love And Its Opposite’, The Rapture’s ‘Pieces of the People We Love’ and M83’s ‘Saturdays=Youth’.
In the last few months Ewan has co-produced and mixed Footprintz’ debut album for Visionquest, alongside remixes for Metronomy, Turbo and Luke Solomon. Currently Ewan is in the studio producing a new album for Tracey Thorn and the debut album from Jagwar Ma. Sick!
Appealing to those with a darker side, Ewan will be followed by dark lord KONRAD BLACK - a name that needs no introduction to those with a penchant for Wagon Repair or M_nus.
In the five years since the dark, shadowy tones of his "Draconia" & "Medusa Smile" anthems enveloped dancefloors around the Globe, Black has built Wagon Repair (the label he co-founded with Mathew Jonson) into one of the most respected labels around. He is a highly innovative producer and much sought after remixer (check out his work for Tiga, Snax, Audion and Martini Brös if proof is needed).
His recent co-production with Art Department - Graveyard Tan - is one of the biggest tracks of 2012 and has been absolutely killing it everywhere we've been this summer - from the small&TALL dancefloor to Robot Heart at Burning Man.
And all the way from Colombia (via London) we are proud to introduce a good friend of ours - NATALIA ESCOBAR. Born and Raised between the mountains of the Andes and the jungles of Colombia, Natalia Escobar has been spotted igniting parties all over the world. What started out as a debut gig, a request from Seth Troxler for his Soul Shower event at Berlin’s legendary Club De Visionaire has led to her performing at top venues. She’s also famous for spicing up after show parties during London’s Fashion week, such as her performances at the Basso & Brooks and Vivienne Westwood after show parties. Natalia has been busy of late with her new Poison Arrow project, first in the studio producing music that could be considered a blend of Colombian passion crime pop lyrics with a cold synth driven production style.
Suru and Wendy are having a rest this week but we are pleased to welcome back diminutive yet party rocking local favourite OCEAN LAM.
Also, fresh from their strong performances on the playa will be SWAMY and 2GWEILOS - in full Burning Man decompression mode.
Don't miss this - it's our biggest lineup yet!
