WE'RE BACK on Saturday, February 6th with our first MIDNIGHT LOVERS of 2016! We managed to get our hands on SESSION VICTIM from Germany! Oh boy, these two throw down and will be gracing us with a FOUR HOUR set! Chris Bowen setting up the early vibes for the night. NOT one to be missed.
• SESSION VICTIM (Germany / Delusions of Grandeur / Retreat)
The late James Brown aside, you won’t find anyone with a more visceral connection with soul than Session Victim in the midst of a DJ set.
Their live set pitches the energy levels up even further, the frenzied head banging of two friends jamming like their lives depend on it, now a signature scene.
Since the success of their bedroom-produced debut LP took them a little by surprise in 2012, Hauke Freer and Matthias Reiling have formalised their ad hoc studio jams and fanatical sampling sessions into something resembling a schedule, but besides that, refreshingly nothing much has changed about the friendship spanning two decades and a regular Hamburg to Berlin studio exchange.
With their record collections spanning several decades of hip hop, funk and soul as well as frequently vinyl-only house and techno selections, it’s their passion for uncovering dusty vinyl treasures and the soul that can be captured on a miniature moment in wax that inspires both their DJ sets and production environment.
