Lindstrom, Natasha Kitty Katt, Chris Massey, Marco Giannini, REETA.
Lost in Music brings in the sounds of Norway, Scotland… and Manchester as they mark their first birthday in September.
Lost in Music turns one in style on Saturday 22 September 2018, as they welcome Norwegian nu-disco godfather, Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, leader of the nu-breed of disco DJs and resident at Liverpool Disco Festival, Natasha Kitty Katt and head honcho of Mancunian record label, Sprechen, Chris Massey, to Joshua Brooks (106 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6NG).
Heading up the stellar line up is an extremely rare LIVE appearance by Lindstrøm, who is returning to the city for the first time since appearing at the Parklife Festival in 2013.
Like one of his endlessly building tracks, Hans-Peter Lindstrøm is only moving further upwards. The Norwegian space-disco wizard’s new EP, Windings, is three tracks of that now-classic sound closely associated with Lindstrøm’s name: skyward synths, effervescent rhythms, and melodies that spiral beautifully into the great
unknown. This is Lindstrøm in the zone—and if you’ve been paying close attention over the last decade, it’s a zone he’s never left.
Recorded over the past year, Windings represents Lindstrøm’s latest crystallization of the aesthetic that the greater world was introduced to on the 2006 compilation It’s
a Feedelity Affair, as well as the tangy pop of 2012’s masterful Smalhans. This isn’t to say Lindstrøm's repeating himself—far from it, in fact. Windings finds our arpeggiator-obsessed hero refining an aesthetic that already sounded perfect—a zenith that, much like the music itself, hits new peaks even when it seems that there’s no more ceiling to breach.
Next up on the bill is Edinburgh’s own Natasha Kitty Kat making her Manchester debut. Natasha has been lighting up dancefloors across the globe with her energetic and eclectic brand of underground disco. With recent releases on Tribe, Ghetto Disco, Masterworks Music, Hot Digits and Midnight Riot, Natasha has also solidly entrenched herself in the top tier of modern disco producers. Not only a prolific producer, Natasha also holds down a number of prestigious residencies including the Southport Weekender, Liverpool Disco Festival and Suncebeat Festival in Croatia.
Chris Massey is a man who needs little introduction to the clubbers of the rainy city. Main man behind the phenomenal Sprechen label and with tracks also released on Paper Recordings and recently releasing the Sheroes EP, a duet with fellow Mancunian, DJ Paulette on Yam Who’s? Black Riot label. In addition, Chris is a proven DJ having played up and down the country, as well as regular festival appearances across Europe. Chris marks his debut appearance for Lost in Music.
Completing the DJ element of the first birthday are residents Marco Giannini and Reeta.
