1st Birthday Shenanigans @ The Amazing Metropolis Strip Club
Our debut at this amazing club in December was amazing, it is such a great club and the next party will be just the same.
We have curated a line up that blows anything else out of the water, by far our best one to date. Pure musical talent that will keep it rolling all night long.
Our 1st year has flown by, this will be our first event of 2014 and we intend to start with a bang, we have got some great events lined up with some great terrace sessions and more at Metropolis.
We would like to thank everybody for your continued support, we very much appreciate it and are so grateful :)
Originally a strip club, Metropolis is situated on Cambridge Heath Road in the heart of Bethnal Green, East London. Set across 3 floors, the ground floor being the main room kitted out with a monster Martin Audio soundsystem, state of the art production with lights / laser and visuals. The second floor will be the chill out area, with private booths that look over the main room, this leads to the third floor where our residents and guests will be playing host, the setting for this area is amazing - dressed in a complete Moroccan theme, with its very own beach, king size 4 poster beds and the most amazing decor you can find.
This is a very unique club, something completely different to the usual warehouse or event space. We have curated a great line up of underground House & Techno for our 1st Birthday and we cannot wait to party with you guys again.
Peter Ford, better known as Baby Ford, is a British electronic music record producer, known particularly for his contributions to the birth of acid house. He has also released material under the aliases Cassino Classix, El Mal, Solcyc, and Simprini Risin'.
Ford was influenced by Chicago musicians such as Marshall Jefferson, Ron Trent, Armando, and Larry Heard, and was one of the founders of the acid house scene in the United Kingdom. His early work was released on Rhythm King, including the club tracks "Oochy Koochy (F.U. Baby Yeah Yeah)" (UK #58), and "Chikki Chikki Ahh Ahh" (UK #54). These two first singles appeared on the 2x12" EP "Ford Trax" (BFORD3.)
Both appeared in remixed form on the EP, and the original singles were remixed on a variety of different formats (12" and CD) and energized the burgeoning UK acid-house scene. Sire Records in the US signed Baby Ford, as well as several other artists, on the Rhythm King label. Sire had been impressed with the label, but reportedly had concerns about how to effectively market Rhythm King artists in the US, as acid house had not broken into the US mainstream. The second album Oooh, the World of Baby Ford contained three singles, the most popular of which was 1989's "Children of the Revolution" (UK #53). It was also a club hit across the globe, as was 1990's "Beach Bump" (UK #68). The US released the "Let's Talk It Over" EP in 1990, with exclusive live tracks. The tracks were recorded on Baby Ford's tour of the US, where he opened for Depeche Mode on several dates of their Violator tour.
The BFord9 album in 1992 revealed a different side of Ford's electronic influences. The release incorporated minimal techno with trance-like elements, long before these genres became popular later in the decade.CJ Bolland contributed a mix of "In Your Blood" on BFord9 and "Fetish" was a club hit in both the UK and the US. Several of the songs on BFord9 were re-released by Aphex Twin on his Re-Phlex label in the late 1990s in a remixed format on "Normal EP". Many of these remixes were recorded in 1992.
Baby Ford, Eon, and Mark Broom continued their explorations into minimal electronic music throughout the 1990s and well into the next decade through the iFach, Pal-SL and Trelik Record labels. iFach Vol. 1 contained the first five releases on the iFach label.
Releases appeared on Sire, Source, and Insumision/Transglobal. He co-managed the labels Trelik and iFach, and worked with Trelik's Ian Loveday. His remixing work includes tracks by Stefan Robbers and S'Express.
