Our last party back September was the last of our summer Terrace parties, which see Cargo full to capacity by 8pm. Our residents took the terrace by storm and created that true seduktion party atmosphere.
In the Main Arch Huxley took us through a bumpy musical journey as we partied until 6am with an extended licence.
This time around we welcome a true seduktion favourite, Martin Dawson. We're truly honoured to have him at the controls of that infamous Cargo Main Arch.
MARTIN DAWSON (Crosstown Rebels / Get Physical)
With the arrival of 2011 Martin Dawson can reflect back on the past few months and definitely feel satisfied. Having just started to release tracks under his own name at the beginning of 2010 – in just 12 months he has had some very successful releases and worked with some of the best labels in underground house including Cocoon, Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, 2020vision, Off recordings and Moodmusic. The move to work under his own name came off the back of a very fruitful career working under his alternative guise – King Roc – for which he released his debut album in 2009 to critical acclaim from the international dance music press including album of the month in DJ Mag and 10/10 by IDJ Mag. He was nominated by DJ Mag for best UK producer and best artist album 2009 along the likes of Jamie Jones and Skream. Also well known for his work as Two Armadillos with studio partner and good friend Giles Smith (secretsundaze), Martin is a producer that has the ability to steps out of the box of just one genre and can turn his talent to anything that takes his fancy… but with a deep rooted love of house this is where you will find most of his work residing.
Martin will be the first to say he loves working in the studio but his passion for DJ and performing can not be questioned with an international career that has seen him playing all around the world from West and Eastern Europe to South American, Australia and most of Asia, right to the deepest parts of Russia. Support for his production in whatever alter ego also has his music being aired around the globe by some of best DJ’s in the world including Laurent Garnier, Tiefschwarz, Radioslave, D’Julz, Solomon, Nick Curly and Luciano to name a few.
The first part of 2010 has included some very successful releases including ‘What The Fuck’ on Get Physical and his debut LP ‘Sunday Smoking’ on Moodmusic plus collaborations with Andre Crom, Catz n Dogz, Glimpse and of course Two Armadillos with Giles Smith of which their latest record ‘People of the World’ on secretsundaze music made it to the top 5 of Groove Magazine in Germany. And just to keep things interesting Martin is currently working on the second King Roc album as well as a new concept album with Voitek and Greg from Catz n Dogz.
