**THIS EVENT WILL NOW TAKE PLACE IN KONGS, LEVEL 2 (GUILDHALL PLACE)**
We are super excited to be back at Kongs Cardiff for another party. We will be opening at 10pm where Earl Jeffers will play a 3 hour set before handing over to Prosumer when we close at 3am, giving you plenty of time to let off some steam.
After years of being on the wishlist, we are really excited to finally invite Prosumer to the party. As a champion of house music and its history, we are honoured to have him grace the decks at this party.
"The craze about the music...“
...the man called Prosumer is besotted with it. Since Achim Brandenburg heartily grabbed the microphone under this moniker in 2005 for Frankfurt’s then undisputed Label Playhouse, he showed that lasciviousness, a fever for Chicago’s Jack flavour and consciousness of tradition aren’t necessarily bound to a time and a place. Vision, passion and knowledge make Prosumer a guardian of house music history and one of the formative artists, influential DJs and important producers of our days.
While deriving his name from Alvin Toffler’s techno sci-fi-bible The Third Wave (producing and consuming at the same time), Prosumer lives up to his name. With more than a decade of Hard-Wax-Record-Store-enculturation on the clock (first in Saarbrucken, then Berlin), he spent countless nights in clubs, days looking for music and years refining his art and becoming in line with the “big three”. This is not a reference to Detroit’s car companies, but the city’s musical heritage that – together with the Big Apple and the Windy city – laid the foundation for techno and house builds with the Big Apple and the Windy City.
Prosumer oscillates between these poles. That holds true for his productions, which are affected by references and historical vertexes, but never feel to be out of time or place. An album with Murat Tepeli and collaborations with Tama Sumo expand his discography for labels like the aforementioned Playhouse, Running Back or Swayzak’s 240 Volts. On the other hand – and that might be far more important – this is exemplary for his DJ work since the mid-nineties. Prosumer connects the tracks and songs of this music’s golden age with the worthwhile pieces and developments of today. Accordingly to that special feeling which is so hard to couch, he gets engaged in it from tip to toe – and so does his audience. Proved by his mission as one of the residents in Berlin’s influential club institution, on his official mix CD for that place that describes his spectrum of sound perfectly and by this certain magic that travels with and in him everywhere.
"Through his body and through his veins...“
Che has always been a true player in the Cardiff scene. Both his DJ sets and production have soundtracked many an event for a number of years. In the early years, forming one quarter of the garage collective, CRST, paved the way for his hip-hop productions with Darkhouse Fam. Whilst all this has been happening, Che continued to produce the more housier side of his music under his Earl Jeffers Alias. From this, his own label Melange was born. This label has consistently put out heavy house hitters that will be played on dancefloors for years to come.
We are extremely chuffed that Che agreed to play all night for us at this event, who knows what's in store, but we can guarntee some very fine selections.
