The 2 Bears
Greco Roman Soundsystem
Plus Special Guests
Community present a very special Christmas party courtesy of the hottest production duo to emerge in 2010 The 2 Bears AKA Raf Daddy and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip. For their annual knees up they welcome friends and family to the Plan B Funktion One soundsystem, including label mates Greco Roman Soundsystem, remix supremo Leo Zero and last but not least Horse Meat’s Disco unofficial bear Severino.
Like some kind of partnership dream team the 2 Bears are Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and long term London producer and part of the Greco Roman stable, Raf Daddy. After an EP earlier in the year that included the hit ‘Follow the Bear’ they unleashed ‘The Church’, a soulful escapade that is anything but your average dance track. It has topped charts and found itself onto Radio One playlists, we can see 2011 definitely being the year of the bear. Their DJ sets include everything from rump shaking house to more broken beats and party starting flavours, usually found amongst large arenas warming up for Hot Chip, this s a rare chance to chat them in action in the Plan B main room.
Joining the Christmas party is like a who’s who of the producers and DJs who have been capturing imaginations over the past 12 months. First up are the Greco Roman Soundsystem, a loose collective of DJs and producers who form the Berlin based label’s official live front. Their improvised back-to-back sets, drawing widely on the myriad sounds that have made electronic music great in the last 20 years is made up of a selection of record label artists and friends and have rocked just about every festival known to man this summer.
Bringing the disco tinged flavours to the room are Horse Meat Disco’s Severino and Leo Zero. Leo has been remixing everyone from Florence and The Machine to Byran Ferry this year and transformed every pop artist into an essential alternative track. Joining Leo is Severino who is no stranger to London clubs being one of the capital’s best DJs in the l and part of the original Horse Meat Disco collective.
