As we just about get around to recovering from our first birthday last month, we’re back at The Garage on Friday 19th April. The good people at Echo Festival have put together quite the line-up for their sophomore year on the Croatian coast, and even invited us lot to host a stage on the Thursday night. So we thought it’d only be right to return the favour and throw a little warm-up bash here in Leeds. The line-up’s the same, although unfortunately it’s not taking place on a beach - you’ll have to come with us in June for that.
Marbled World - Christopher Rau [Never Learnt]
Hamburg’s Christopher Rau has released on labels such as Mule Musiq, Ethereal Sound, Pampa and Hypercolour – not forgetting two cracking albums (and a bunch of singles) on Smallville. He collaborates with his mate Moomin under the name Roaming too. You’d probably call his music ‘deep house’, but you won’t find any shufflers in here. It’s melodic, highly attractive and just a little bit quaint, yet never fails on the ‘floor. DJ sets from Mr. Rau are relatively hard to come by on these fair shores, so don’t miss out.
Fabric Promo Mix - Christopher Rau
It’s been a crazy six months or so for October. Since we hosted his Leeds debut back in September the boy from Bristol has (deep breath): turned in a stellar Resident Advisor podcast, put out a couple of widely-acclaimed releases in collaboration with Will Saul and John Osborn (as well as a recent solo outing on NYC’s Voodoo Down Records Records) and even made his Panorama Bar debut last month. Those of you in attendance back in September will know what’s on the menu – rugged, well-oiled house and techno from a real pro.
RA. 339 - October
And as if that isn't enough, Fullbarr Records will be taking over Waxwerks again! Grab your tickets now and we'll see you on the 19th. RA users can keep up to date here.
