Our line up is now complete!!!
After the great success of What? with Margaret Dygas, we are back again at our favourite basement and with some super surprises on the menu as well. Our September session at The Gramaphone is coming to headline legendary Baby Ford himself! ...and this is not everything! You can also expect special live performance from popular Dutch gentleman Ion Ludwig.
Baby Ford (Ifach)
Peter Ford is one of the most recognized names in current electronic music. He is one of the founders of the UK Acid House scene and he is releasing music under numerous aliases for over 20 years now.
His early work was heavily influenced by the late 80’s Acid House, as well as Chicago producers such as Marshall Jefferson or Ron Trent among others and included classics like ‘’Oochy Koochy’’, ‘’Children of the Revolution’’ and ‘’Fetish’’. His works came out on many labels which included Sire, Source or Insumision/Transglobal. Albums such as Ford Trax or Headphoneasy Rider are considered as classic among most techno DJs.
His recent work has appeared mostly through his own imprints Ifach or Trelik, but we can find his name also on releases from Perlon, Sender, Autoreply, Rephlex just to name few. He is involved in many collaborations and groups which are including names such as Thomas Melchior or Zip.
Ion Ludwig (Motivbank, Resopal, Quagmire)
Ion Ludwig is young Dutch artist whose name gets mentioned in our circles more the often right now. He’s got his amazing new album out (Free K Loudwiggle) on his own imprint Quagmire, impressive releases on labels such as Motivbank or Resopal and his ‘’live’’ is something you definitely need to see.
Ion learned classic and electric guitar and studied at several African percussion courses all by the age of ten. After being introduced to techno and house he started to produce his own music in the summer of 2003. In his early productions he’s been searching for a minimal sound. As freaky as it can get, his music is dark and raw, always changing and moving.
His first 12’’ release was for Butane’s label Alphahouse and after this EP we’ve seen releases on labels such as Underline, Stock5, Phonocult, Resopal and Motivbank. In 2007 Ion moved from Amsterdam to Berlin and founded his own label Quagmire. These days we can see him performing all around Europe and beyond in most respected venues alongside with top international artists.
Our special guests will be supported as usual by resident DJs Juraj and Brano Petrek and again we will have some interesting visuals by our friend .hek.
This is undoubtedly going to be one super little night again and we are already counting every minute!!!
See you on the dancefloor.
