Venue MOT Unit 18, London
Date: 24th of January
MUSIC OF THE PHOENIX started with the chance encounter of two likeminded souls in the heart of South London. Through a shared joy of good music and its power to transform everyday life, grew the desire to bring people together in unique spaces where the vibe, music, and sound are the most important thing.
Following a series of events around South London over the past two years, we are excited to release the first of 2020, taking place in the raw industrial heartland of South Bermondsey at Venue MOT Unit 18. We have a state of the art Martin Audio sound system on the night and cutting edge VJ display all night long.
We have handpicked two of our favourite Romanian minimal house and techno artists from the prestigious Club Guest House in Bucharest for this one.
Club Guesthouse is at the heart of Romania's underground music for House, Techno and Minimal. The club is known not only for its up-to-date line-ups of extended sets but their crowd selection, friendly staff and sound quality.
Their programme consists of Romanian regulars on rotation including Rhadoo, Pedro and Raresh as well as the younger Romanian generation of artists along with international guests.
Herodot needs no introduction as he continues to pioneer his sound in the minimal underground scene. He is a resident at the exclusive club Guest House in Bucharest and has had many appearances at the famous Sunwaves Festival in Romania. More recently his morning set at the mysterious Mioritmic Festival in Transylvania was a highlight of the year in the festival circuit.
Moving away from the conventions of minimal, Herodot’s expansive range covers a wide range of tempos and genres. He has a remarkable dedication to crate digging often leaning heavily towards forgotten gems from the 90s. His selections cover a cultured variety of rhythmically playful and soul-infused tracks, joining the dots between different genres and locking any dance floor into their groove. Herodot spends most of his time DJing, while still supporting the development of the movement through his label Unanim and his expertise in the field of sound engineering skills.
// ANDREI CIUBUC
Also resident at Club Guest House, he was first seen at Mioritmic in 2018 and has gone from strength to strength with sets at the legendary Sunwaves Festival, Whaha Festival, Club Hoppetosse in Berlin and the Robert Jonson in Frankfurt.
Andrei is at the forefront of the new wave of Romanian producers and DJs, who are bringing new life into the Romanian house and techno underground. Draganenii, his own imprint, is planning a series of releases by famous artists under various pseudonyms, so something to watch for the future.
As a member 'Backstage Boys’, a trio formed by him, Dan Andrei and Kozo, and the duo VRAC alongside Vlad Radu, he has also released on the labels Subtil and Vera & Alexandra's Melliflow.
