So as much as we like to bemoan the fact that time is flying and it's hard to believe we've hit a particular season after the last one flew by, October's arrival actually feels expected and welcome. It's most likely the combination of the slightly cooler weather and the fact that we can't avoid getting caught up in this election as we look to choose a leader who'll help get our country back on track. VOTE PEOPLE!
But this isn't just any old CITRIC we have on our horizons, it's our Fourth Anniversary!!! To commemorate it we're welcoming back inaugural CITRIC guest, the man who launched our first party back in Oct '04 and has been back every year since, Kris B. For anyone who's been paying attention to the scene over the last couple years, Kris B has had tracks featured on Nick Warren's GU compilations, Sasha's Essential Mix turned in countless amazing remixes for labels such as Baroque, System Recordings and his own NightShade Music label. Consistently receiving support from such names as Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela, Nick Warren, Jody Wisternoff, Sasha etc etc Kris has also had the opportunity to tour Brazil and Costa Rica recently and has now joined forces with former GrayArea bandmate, Nosmo. Together they're a remix/production powerhouse that churns out new music on an intimidatingly prolific scale. If you've made it to any of our last October CITRIC's you'll know exactly what to expect-and if you haven't seen Kris live then there's no time like the present!
Also stoking the flames of nonsense on this gala event will be CT's Mike Kiraly. Mike has been holding it down up in Hartford as a resident at Room 960 and together with fellow resident Kered, has seen international acclaim from such indusrty stalwarts as Pete Tong with their treatment of Lazar's "Heat of the Moment" which was an absolute smash hit. Mike has done some great remixes, both released and forthcoming, for CITRIC Recordings and since he was already going to be in town to celebrate our 4th anniversary with us, we figured why not give people a taste of his DJ sound with a special warm up set.
As we all know by now, CITRIC wouldn't be where it is today without Derek Godwin who has also been with us since day one. He brings disarming british charm that we're sick of hearing the ladies ask about and is genuinely one of the nicest guys around in the scene today. Derek will be kicking things off proper for us at 10pm at the height of our 4th Anniversary Drink specials which will be running until midnight.
Last but not least, CITRIC Recordings label heads and DJs extraodinaire, Holosound will also be on the bill. Following the success of our last September party Holosound will be playing from 2-4.
Be sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for $5 reduced admission as we're really going to have to stick to $10 for all those who don't-it's not easy getting people in from Chicago and Connecticut!
Friday October 10th
Holosound, Derek Godwin
