UP^^ – Turnmills – Saturday, March 4th, 2006
Following a series of spectacular parties, UP^^ present their first event of 2006 and we’ll be stepping up to the plate and taking over Turnmills, London’s finest house establishment, on Saturday, March 4th with our infectious brand of fiercely funky house that all’s about big basslines, driving dirty house grooves and those special hands-in-the-air moments. Last year saw UP^^ take the Baby Box at the Ministry of Sound by storm with four packed nights that had this intimate space rockin’ well past it’s usual bed time. There was also a cheeky smash-and-grab at Turnmills back along the way when we showed the City Loud crowd just what UP^^ is all about. These parties also established the UP^^ residents Ben Dela-Peña and Brad 212 Finlay as two of the hottest properties on London’s house scene.
A new year and UP^^ will be forging full steam ahead and we can’t wait to take over the whole of Turnmills for a party of epic proportions. An all-star line-up has been assembled for this auspicious occasion with the chart-topping Shapeshifters headlining. These guys are on fire right now with a new single, ‘Incredible’, taken from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Sound Advice’ – expect to hear a few sneak previews on the night.
Joining them will be rising stars the Trophy Twinswho’ve really come into their own in the last 12 months and are winning new friends and influencing people wherever they play. With Ben Dela-Peña and Brad 212 Finlay rounding the night off and Shane Watcha from BBL getting the party started right, this promises to be a superb night of musical entertainment and house music at its very finest.
There’s also something pretty special over in T2 with special guests[/b] Full Intention[/b]at the helm. The highly acclaimed DJ, production and remix duo of Michael Gray and Jon Pearnwill be playing a special set featuring the best of their productions and remixes based on their ‘Connected 2: 10 Years of Full Intention’ mix album on Defected. They’ll also be previewing their new single, ‘I Believe In You’, on Eye Industries, while support comes from Mooch!n, one of London’s hottest party crews, featuring Lee Jarvis, Mr Kimble and Luke Ashworth along with gentleman-about-town Richard Launchof Groove Factory fame.
UP^^ is all about the finest new house talent London has to offer too and Kurruption and TiC will be joining forces to host the third space. Expect the best in upfront and chunky house grooves with Phill Noda, Tom Allan, Vandal and CD representing Kurruption, while the Tongue in Cheek boys Cooley, Billy Gonzalezand Oliver James will be playing a special back-to-back session.
Finally, the Top Floor lounge will feature the FunkyTwisterDisco with all manner of fun and musical mayhem from Sophisticated Dance and friends alongside Twister hosted by Nikki Wildchild.
You have been warned!
All in all, this promises to be a night to remember as UP^^ and Turnmills join forces for a night of freshest, sexiest and downright fiercest funky house around. There’s no finer place to party than Turnmills, of course, so put Saturday, March 4th in your diary, dress up to get down and slip on your dancing shoes. The only way is UP^^, baby… Dress to flirt!
