Warm return for their eighth installment of their Plastic People residency on Friday August 21st. This month we welcome two of our good friends and Warm Agency's finest house DJ's in Ame (Innervisions) and Lil Tony (Versatile/Innervisions).
Ame have cemented their reputations as one of the worlds best house dj's playing clubs such as Secretsundaze in London, Panorama bar in Berlin, Cielo in New York and Yellow in Tokyo, as well as producing some of the most talked about tracks and remixes of the past five years. Their most recent remixes for Runaway which is forthcoming on Rekids and Neworldaquarium on Delsin as well as their recent killer 12" for Innervisions "Setsa/Ensor" have all continued to turn heads on the house music scene . With a plethora of new music in the pipeline including the much anticipated Critical Mass album which is co-produced with good friends and innervisions colleagues Dixon and Henrik Schwarz as well as a whole host of the new material and remixes for Innervisions, 2009 looks set to be another great year for the Innervisions CEO's.
