5 years since Loose Lips was born from a hyper discussion in a sweaty living room after coming back from a long night at Fabric!
To celebrate half a decade of looseness, we're throwing a load of whopper parties across Europe, bringing together residents, label crew, and various members of the LL extended family who have contributed to any of our projects.
In Lisbon - the home of one of our blog’s editors, and two previous killer LL showcases - we have something really special for you!
We’re delighted to bringing a good friend, a Loose Lips label releasee, and one of the most seminal modern spearheads of acid music…to Portugal for the first time ever…POSTHUMAN! He’ll be joined by LL residents, T-Scale & Medallion Man, as well as a host of local acts who inspire us…
- Posthuman (I Love Acid/Balkan Vinyl/Dixon Avenue Basement Jams) - UK
A modern spearhead of Acid House, resident & boss at long-running club night & vinyl-only label ‘I Love Acid”, and also running Balkan Vinyl.
Joshu has run well over a hundred parties since 2007 across the UK & Europe - with current regular residencies at Pickle Factory in London and Gorilla in Manchester.
The duo have an extensive back catalogue of 12"s on labels the like of Tusk Wax, X-Kalay, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Body Work, Craigie Knowes, Shipwrec, Chiwax, Acid Avengers, B12 Records as well as their own imprints.
- H.A.F. (Loose Lips)
A raucous duo.
- Medallion Man b2b T-Scale (Loose Lips/Faster Than Music/Threads Radio)
These two LL head honchos come together only rarely, but when they do…it bangs!
- Moreno Acido
Moreno Ácido is the alter ego of Mário Vinagre, a producer born and raised in Lisbon. His extensive musical background goes back to the beginnings of the Portuguese hip hop movement in the early 90s. There he caught the drum n bass fever at the turn of the millennium and later became one half of Boogaloo. He has since evolved in many directions, with his slow, acidic ambient house sound revealing a remarkable maturity, a dive into a combination of torrid and calming landscapes, perfect to be shared on a dance floor or experienced in moments of introspection.
