After a well deserved break following our massively successful 1st birthday event back in August, Magnetix is proud to be back at the 414 again. We’d like to thank K90, JTB, Jurrane and of course, all of the clubbers that attended for making it by far the best Magnetix yet! And as usual we have recorded the sets too, which can be found available to download or stream on our brand new website, www.magnetixuk.com!
Since the 1st birthday back in August, not only have we had time to fully recharge our batteries before returning to our beloved (and very soon to be refurbished) Club 414, but this time we’ve also brought some friends with us. Hailing from the South Coast the FireSky boys have been rocking Weymouth for over a year now, during which time they have seen the likes of Cally & Juice, Dave Joy and Nick the Kid to name a few, as well as hosting their own vs. night with the biggest hard dance night in Wales, the one and only Bionic!
So it is with great pleasure that we can present, for your listening and dancing pleasure, Magnetix vs. FireSky @ Club 414 on Friday 30th Jan 2009!
Leading the South Coast invasion is none other than regional hero Iain Cross. He’s been in the business for over 10 years, during which time he’s pretty much done it all. From running record shops to record labels (both digital and vinyl), to being a revered Hard Trance DJ and producer across the country, there’s not much that this man has not achieved. A welcome recent return to production has yielded some excellent material, with recent single “GOD” receiving rave reviews and follow up “Cracka” set to do just as well, both featuring on Iain’s new digital label audio:tech. We cannot remember the last time this guy rocked London, but we’re betting that no one will forget this man in a hurry.
Next up is a man who is stuck somewhere in the middle of all of this; Jon the Baptist. Holding residencies at both Magnetix AND FireSky makes Jon the only link between the two, but having consistently rocked both in the past we wouldn’t want to ask him to choose. Instead, this is one DJ that we’re happy to share, as people with his talent for not only DJ’ing but also producing are rare indeed. An out and out legend in his native south coast, Jon is fast becoming hot property in and around London ever since he was made a Magnetix resident, with Frantic recently having them at the prestigious Brixton Academy back in October; a sign that he is being noticed over this way too.
No FireSky event would be complete without it’s main promoters, DJ the Corbz and M.N.K.Y & Ryki. Together they have played alongside just about every DJ worth a mention in their respective scene (Technikal, Lisa Pin-Up, Vinylgroover, Uberdruck, BK, Amber D, Kutski, Alex Kidd, Mark EG, Organ Donors to name a few) for some of the largest parties the UK has to offer (Slinky, Nu Religion, Resonate, Frenzy) Young, full-throttle and madder than a bag of ferrets, they ooze energy and mischievousness everywhere they go. You cant miss these guys even when they’re not behind the decks, so prepare to party hard as they bring the sounds of the south coast to London, for one night only!
Fighting for Magnetix however, is a young man by the name of Andy Forse. Andy has been part of the Magnetix team for a while now and has been impressing many people with his infectious Psy Trance sound. Essentially taking the place of Ashley James who is currently on an extended holiday in South Africa, we’re confident you wont be disappointed. A recent guest slot for Anti-world radio and some very well received promo mixes have started to create a buzz, which we intend to keep flowing. Still a relatively new DJ to the scene, we’re banking on him to truly make his mark not only on clubbers, but promoters and other DJs too at this event. After showing us what he is capable of at the last Magnetix after party we felt it was only right we unleashed him with a peak time set that is a sly bet to be the best of the night.
Our final guest for the evening will be Kevsta. An ever present for the Magnetix after party we felt it was only fair that we gave one of the original Magnetix members time to shine on the main stage, and as he will be delivering the first set means he’ll do the traditional 2 hours, giving him a chance to really progress the evening and easy you into your groove.
Backing up Andy Forse and Kevsta from the Magnetix stable will be the ever reliable residents. Firstly is Phil Lankester aka Libra 9, whose recent Ableton Live sets have been making some major waves. Phil’s already impressive technical skill has crossed over to Ableton amazingly, and even for those who are sceptical of DJ’s who don’t use Vinyl or CD’s it’s hard to actually care what medium is used when you hear a DJ of Phil’s calibre tear a venue a new fire escape!
Dean Zone also returns, this time armed with some very recent studio productions and even more gigs and venues under his belt than he had before, only this time he will be playing a very special vs. set with DJ the Corbz of FireSky, in a clash of the titans that will leave Brixton feeling the after effects for days to come!
As per usual we’ll have 50 copies of the latest Magnetix Promo CD, with Vol. 5 this time being mixed by our very own Phil Lankester. And remember, if you missed out on any of Volumes 1 – 4 then you can download them all, along with lots of live sets from the previous Magnetix events from our website, www.magnetixuk.com!
And for those of you who don’t want to go home come 06:00, the Magnetix After Party will be running from 06:30 till late, with DJ Sebastien, Timmy Whiz, Lorenzo Barrero + more TBC!!!
The Magnetix Promise:
Please note, we here at Magnetix are not content with just turning up, putting up set times, switching on the decks and playing some music. Oh no. It is our mission to give you, the clubber, a much more personal clubbing experience.
On the night we will be decking out Club 414 to the max.
Expect psychedelic décor, vinyl give aways, free mix cd’s courtesy of our special residents for the first 50 people through the door, free glow sticks and bands, free tickets to other events and lots more.
Couple that with the best chill out room of any club in London, dedicated club Photographers, a roof terrace for the smokers and of course, the legendary 414 café (what other club in London can you get a Cheese Toasty from?) and you’d be mad to miss out! We are also doing our best to support new talent and push new DJs. With a strictly any type of Trance music policy, we are always open to receiving demos. Just hand your demo in at the door when you arrive. All demos will be listened to by a member of the team and you will receive feedback.
