Time to block Saturday March 9th in your agenda. This time Objektivity and its head honcho Dennis Ferrer present the fresh new concept: Sons of Raw @ Mint Warehouse, Leeds
A night where new and exciting talent teams up with the man who needs no introduction. The aspiring ‘Sons of Raw’ are Jordan Peak, Phil Weeks and André Hommen.
The Objektivity showcases are an imperative for those who like their house deep, damp and downright dirty. Over the last four years, New York’s infamous deep house imprint has earned its place among the other major label showcases flocking the world’s most important clubbing hotspots, music conferences and festivals. After successful showcases at Stereo Montreal, Trouw Amsterdam, Toffler Rotterdam, Studio 80, WMC, Chalet Berlin, Circus, Amsterdam Dance Event, Cavo Paradiso & Blend, Greece and many more, the place where it all happens on March 9th is the ever raw yet intimate Mint Warehouse, Leeds
Objektivity is moving forward, fast forward. The latest releases 'Slammin Doors EP', ‘Westpark Trax EP’, ‘No Difference’ and ‘Issshhh EP’ have been smashing dance floors worldwide and there’s a lot more where that came from. As a Son of Raw himself, Dennis Ferrer decided to gather around promising talents whose veins are filled with the same raw blood as his, hence the name: ‘Sons of Raw’
After introducing The Martinez Brothers to the world, Dennis Ferrer’s sharp eye for talent fell on André Hommen (co-producer of ‘No Difference’) an the latest addition to the Objektivity fam is the 19 year old Jersey native, Nasser Baker whose 'Salutations EP' will be released on February 5. Displaying a real maturity in his production and a distinct lack of vocal fear, 19 year old Nasser has delivered a choice selection of raw house jams, all of which have been tearing up Objektivity floors since their inception. Even though Nasser himself wasn't able to attend the Mint edition due to .. oh well... school... he will definitely be there in spirit & sound.
A warm welcome by rising star André Hommen sets the night off right. House purist and owner of Robsoul Recordings, Phil Weeks is next in line to keep the groove jacking the heck out of you. After this Parisian hero, housemaster Dennis Ferrer will happily take over the stage with his unstoppable drive and infectious energy. If you’d been to any of the Objektivity events, you know what this means: certified mayhem of movement and hands in the air. Good thing Jordan Peak comes to the rescue for those who can’t and won’t stop rocking to take care of the closing set. One of his biggest hits is ‘Keep it Rocking’ is a proper display of what this British boy is capable of.
