On Sat 27th September, Platinum opens it´s doors again to bi-monthly residents and one of London´s finest party crews, EBM. With a total passion for deep underground house music, while still maintaining a stellar old school party vibe that helps them to attract a loyal, sexy, friendly and in the know crowd, you really can´t go wrong with this lot.
The music policy at EBM is always high, and their programming of events ensure that all of the right buttons are pressed across the wide spectrum of underground electronica that these guys pride themselves as gurus on, so you´ll find it very difficult to leave the dance floor! And with a new top of the range sound system in place at Platinum alongside the excellent lighting system and comfortable sofa laden interior, its going to be doubly hard to leave the venue until you are thrown out!
IAN POOLEY* has been flown over especially to headline for this gig. Ian is classed as a premier league DJing talent, and has gained endless kudos and respect for his effortlessly fine production work, as well as his stellar DJ sets. Signed to V2 for years, he later went on to start up his own label, Pooled Music. His early work leaned towards techno but came with an undeniable deep house flavor. His production work gained him a series of remixing offers from high-profile acts such as Daft Punk, The Cardigans, and Yello, while his career as a DJ took off thanks to gigs throughout Europe and the States. Despite his high profile, he maintains close links with underground labels such as NRK, Strive, Sublime, and Odori. Platinum and EBM are warming up with anticipation for this rare Pooley gig in London.
Darren Roach,who heads up EBM alongside JB, is a total party original, and will be supplying us with some ear teasingly groovy, deep house music. This guy is like an extension of a set of decks - totally in tune with what sounds good and with an ability of ease to pull of his magic to a warm reception not just in London, but at various locations across the globe. He´ll be in an extra good mood tonight as its his birthday, so it´s expected to be one heck of a party.
JB is also a total organ grinder when it comes to the party scene in London and being behind a set of decks. An Acid House original party organiser and DJ, this guy has followed the underground house sound since day dot, keeping his fingers in all of the right pies, playing his expertly planned weekly gigs at the ever popular Sunday night sessions at Retox, Sosho as well as holding down a monthly residency with Darren Roach for EBM at The Egg, not to mention frequent appearances at Fabric. With production collaborations planned on his new label Ifidota, this guy will continue to head towards infinity and beyond!
As well as the above we also welcome EBM´s favourite friends- Asad Rizvi (Reverberations), Max Latino (Retox) and Sammy M who´ll be blending there tip top talents together. It almost goes without saying that the EBM boys have all of the bases covered when aiming to providing the finest electronica until the sun comes up...
See you on the dance floor x
