As the moon rises in it’s full and enigmatic glory, Egg London’s hair-raising Halloween party, a homage to the famous ‘Hollywood Forever’ cemetery (the last resting place for many of Tinsel Town’s celluloid heroes & heroines) transforms its five rooms in ghoulish and haunting style. Party with the undead alongside Brazil’s electronic fire starter, Gui Boratto and compatriot L-cio Live, plus the hugely influential Baltimore House duo, DJ Spen & Karizma and rounding off with Ibiza’s fast rising Manu Gonzalez - all conjuring up cutting edge musical tricks n’ treats to die for.
Rolling out the red carpet and crypt-themed decor, ‘Hollywood Forever’ symbolizes the film capital’s golden era with it’s cast of ‘Live Fast Die Young’ gods and goddesses of the silver screen. From the dearly departed Joker, Heath Ledger; punk legends, Joey & Dee Dee Ramone and silent movie star Rudolph Valentino through to the iconic Marilyn Monroe, these flamboyant spirits and their unique style live on beyond the grave.
Celebrating its ongoing legacy, Egg London powers up this event with a seductive and dark house and techno journey into the afterlife that’s sure to raise dead spirits long into this off-kilter night.
Brazil's premiere techno export, Gui Boratto heads up a DOC Records that showcases fellow compatriots L_cio Live and Junior C. Gui shot to prominence with the release of his 'Arquipélago' track on Kompakt’s K2 imprint before delivering his rich debut album 'Chromophobia'. Singles 'Mr Decay' and the epic 'A Beautiful Life' anthem followed which led to Gui joining forces with German house luminaries Marc Romboy and Martin Eyerer on Systematic and Audiomatique. His relentless touring schedule has seem him grace the stage of the most prominent clubs and festivals in the electronic music sphere both as solo performer and alongside Kompakt head Michael Mayer.
Joined by L_cio, the man with the transverse flute who turned heads with his instrumental version of Portable's massive 2014 crossover hit "Surrender" ("Best New Track" at Pitchfork) playing a rare Live set. Joining them is fast rising Brazilian Junior C of tech house track ‘Disco Charge’ fame and Germany’s Gunjah.
Influential Baltimore house duo DJ Spen & Karizma ignite the terrace with their incendiary back to back mix of house, tech, gospel and raw beats, Recently featured on RA with ‘The Art Of DJ-ing’, Karizma ‘a true master of the Pioneer CDJ, using the digital decks in all kinds of inventive and unorthodox ways, creating new ways of playing tracks. One moment you might hear him beating out a drum pattern using three different parts of a track; the next he might be blending loops and effects to build a live remix. He's known for his wide-ranging musical taste, and he rarely sticks to one style, finding links and contrasts in his records in a way few DJs can emulate.’ Acknowledged with a venerable CD in Defected’s House Masters collection as 2/3 of the original Basement Boys producers, DJ Spen & Karizma have played a large part in the development of the East Coast deep house sound since the mid-'90s, and continue to fire up the floor on every level.
Representing the sound of Ibiza is fast-rising Manu Gonzalez, resident DJ at Tribal Sessions at Sankeys and a regular guest at Ants, Space, Amnesia, and Pacha With his own Monday night show on Ibiza Global Radio, Manu’s funky and powerful grooves combined with his old school style DJ sets have won him fans all over the world. Taking no prisoners, Manu and guests headline the Ground Floor.
