Matt Long 3 Hour (dj set)
The concept behind BIG VINYL CIRCUS came from a handful of experienced music lovers who want to create a party that brings together the classic sound of House music, combined with the modern touch of Techno, Minimal and Detroit , all mixed and played on VINYL for the coolest crowd of discerning clubbers.
Our mission at BIG VINYL CIRCUS is complete freedom, both for our artists to showcase their talents and for our patrons to experience the hedonism with joyful abandon. With this in mind we will operate a 'no camera' policy, as we want to preserve the originality and privacy for all who attend.
Tear down the boundaries of after-hours clubbing- and prepare yourself for the unique experience of the BIG VINYL CIRCUS!
Matts love for all things house and techno came from his time spent working in the summer in Ibiza and spinning at various villa parties, he returned home, inspired with what he had seen. Matt and a group of 4 friends created 'mono_cult' a colourful Sunday daytime party in Leeds, taking in a variety of different and unique venues that hosted act's and DJs; Ame, Reboot, Jay Haze,Rhadoo, Nick Curly, Sascha Dive, Prosumer, Move D and Tensnake. The buzz about mono_cult also spread across to Ibiza where Matt and the crew held a weekley residency at Space for Carl Cox's night, hosting the El salon where they played alongside Laurent Gaurnier and Josh Wink during the summer of 07. 2008 saw a new residency for leeds afterhours, Soapbox, whilst mono_cult had highlights including an amazing Sonar Party at La Terrazza in Barcelona. His current style incorporates everything from house, techno, and disco a sound which has been formed whilst he has been working for Ralph Lawson's 2020vision label over the past 2 years. He is currently in the process of setting up a new label adventure - Fina Records with Ralph Lawson and Simon Morell to showcase the deep sound of house.
What sets apart Gianluca Sved from other current DJs, is his unique talents to mix Vinyls/CDs at any time or in any situation, producing the sexiest sounds every single time. This is no MagiC or Coincidence because Gianluca Sved gives all of himself every time he is on the decks. He plays for love…
Yes, his first Love, Music.
At the age of 16, he was forced into the worlds of adults where he had to work and take care of his little brothers while other kids would be going to school. Music became his solace and when he was not busy sweating to make living working, he would trot the streets of Naples (ITALY) in order to seek more love…. Naples was the cradle where house music was first played in Europe.
By the age of 20, Gianluca Sved had witnessed the rise of House music in Europe and was brushing shoulders with famous DJs such as...Little Luis Vega, Kanny Dope Gonzales, Franky Neckless, David Morales, Roger Sanchez and others.. (add more..)
The next stage was IBIZA of course, where he opened up his own bar and started living for his love & passion.
But a brief holiday to London changed his plans and he decides to make it home. In 2005, Gianluca Sved was spotted by music promotes in West London at a Friend's gig and instantly signed up as resident DJ at a couple of central London Venues.
He is among the few who masters the art of Spinning/ mixing Vinyls and to the delight of his fans, he is setting the bar high for other Djs. This is bringing a breath of fresh tunes and real talent back into the London Warehouse music scenes.
Currently highly in demand because of his solid performance, you can hear him play at the Den, Nomad, Cargo, Pacha, … or if you are lucky, at his own warehouse .
We Love Saturday Morning.
