The Record Store have done it again: crisp fresh DJs and music producers are being served to the crowd on a platter, so lap this up. Instead of being held at the usual Spot*light venue in Digbeth, Hare and Hounds pub in King's Heath are playing hosts to The Record Store's newest event.
The Record Store have been updating the Facebook page with remixes and soundcloud samples of what to expect on the night, so have a listen to one of the links and if you like it, then feel free to head on over.
The organisers say it best themselves, but I will say, having been to clubs and bars where both Thefft and Lakosa have been playing, dance lovers are in for a grimy, dirty treat.
Here's how The Record Store puts it:
Another frighteningly young producer with a sound as fresh as it is mature is a certain Jack Robertson, aka THEFFT.
Thefft's industrial techno edge, supported by a classic, floor-friendly, groove-strong disco atmosphere, has quickly become his signature sound, a style that is going to see him in good stead. His productions contain the soul of New York in the body of Berlin with a London Mind.Support has been widespread already, with some of dance's most respected figures already firing his tracks in their sets.
An excellent guest mix for Mary Anne Hobbs on her prestigious XFM show is an excellent map to his sound. (Download link on this page). His tracks have also been heard in the sets of Oneman, Loefah, Distal, Disclosure, Melé – and Zed Bias is such a fan, he invited him to the studio to write a track, which is forthcoming on his next Maddslinky album… Thefft is gonna be committing some serious crimes in the near future.
As both a DJ and a producer, the UK-based artist draws influences from House, Garage, DnB and Hip-Hop. Ever since releasing his critically acclaimed debut on Kerri Chandler's MadTech imprint, it has been nothing but exponential growth for the innovative beat maker. 2013 will see a number of releases and remixes for MadHouse Records, Phuture Shock Musik & Airflex Labs. Lakosa also prepares a string of releases for Well Rounded Housing Project, 2nd Drop Records and Luna Records to name a few.
Support comes across the board from Skream and Benga, Claude Von Stroke, Groove Armada, Mary Anne Hobbs, Disclousure, tINI and Mosca.
Hare and Hounds have a room capacity of 150, so it's wise to buy your ticket now. Early bird tickets cost £5, and like they say "save some coin or pay more on the door".
They're hoping for a hungry crowd because The Record Store, as per usual, only source the best for their punters to chew over.
