Süd Electronic with Move D (Live + DJ), Portable/Bodycode (Live) and Me: Saturday, 4 April, 2009 (Dalston)

I’m a last minute addition to the Süd lineup again. Should be wicked. Move D is playing live and doing a three-hour DJ set. When I played with him last year in the crazy loft it was so crowded I found it hard to enjoy his set. This party is in the same great venue as the last two and attendance will be capped at 300. Although the space is large, the dancefloor filled up a bit at the last two, so this should spread things out a bit. Funktion 1 sound again. Portable is debuting his new Bodycode album live too. Here’s the full blurb:

Move D – Live Set & 3hr Dj Set ( Source , Uzuri , Dial , Compost , Philpot , Mule , Running Back , Modern Love )

Words :
We are back after a much needed hiatus , for our party season opener with man of the moment Move D and the equally talented Portable/Bodycode on the 4th of April .

Move D ;
Much has been written about Move D in recent months & we are glad that he is receiving all these props as we think that the man is a genius !!!
If his recent dj stint @ Warm @ Plastic People is anything to go by , we are all in for an excellent treat !!
2008 year was a huge year for Move D ; with Resident Advisor subscribers voting him amongst the top 3 of the best live acts in electronic music for 2008 , Ace podcasts and endless tours e.t.c. This is no fly by night artist . David Moufang Aka Move D has been honing his skills for a long time . One of our favourite dj’s and producers .
We are also pleased to have been the first promoters to book him to play in london . He has been playing our first party of the year now since 2007 . His kindly offered to play a live set for us on the night as well as a 3hr dj set !!!
So expect the very best in House & Techno !!

Portable/Bodycode :
2008 was also a huge year for Alan Abrahams aka Portable/Bodycode ; with his wonderful new school with a retro twist excursions on Perlon & Musik Krause . His started 2009 on a good footing as well , sharing billings with the likes of Omar S in LA last weekend as well as a quick turn in New York .
Spectral will be releasing a second album by the man , under his Bodycode guise in May 2009 . A 12″ vinyl taster featuring a track taken off the album will be released in March . This 12″ will feature a remix by Babyford .
His kindly offered to play a world exclusive live set , showcasing the album . i’ve had the pleasure of sampling the album as well as featuring on one of the tracks on vocal duties and i must say this is a fresh as you like outing ! !
Unmissable in other words .

Venue :
We have been using this Dalston venue since last October . Our favourite venue yet . Proper underground , just the way we like it , with an ace enclosed garden and decent security !!

we apologise for the less than perfect sound quality at our xmas bash at this venue . We were running the Funktion one on a pioneer mixer and as a result the sound quality was compromised . we will be running it this time on an Allen & Heath or Funktion 1 Formula Mixer so there will be a noticeable difference this time around !

We will be limiting the capacity to 300 this time around as we do not want to pack the venue out too much , this time around .

And one more for good measure.

Next gig SPAM: Sud records 10th release party, with Portable and Cassy

We will be celebrating our 10th release with a very special party on the 31st of March ; our first party for 2007 , so not to be missed !

We are so so thrilled that Cassy will be joining us & helping us celebrate this release .

Catherine Britton aka Cassy, left England for Austria with her Caribbean father and Austrian mother in 1975.
She spent her childhood in Vienna and Lower Austria, starting to sing and study music at an early age. What happenned since has been nothing short of phenominal .

Cassy has become the toast of the electronic world . It’s no surprise really , with the kind of credentials , she holds .

She has collaborated with some of the most influential artists in Techno . Namely Ricardo Villalobos , Luciano , Steve Bug e.t.c. & holds a residency at the highly regarded , Panorama Bar , in Berlin ; & can sometimes be found working behind the counter @ Hardwax ; Berlin’s legendary record shop .

Her solo projects are worth a look in as well as they are rather good . ‘ My Auntie ‘ her solo debut on Perlon , is a personal favourite . She has also recently started , her own label , simply called , Cassy . If the 1st release on this label is any thing to go by , then expect some killer future releases .

What has trully lifted her profile , though is her mix Cd for Panorama Bar . The first for the club & artist alike . Titled ‘Panorama Bar 01 ‘ . This is a journey into the deeper side of Techno & House . No computer gimmicks , just the mixer , 2 decks & a great selection of tracks . This is most definitely one of the best mix cd’s of 2006 . An essential purchase indeed ! .

Anyone who has spent some time on Panorama Bar’s dancefloor during one of Cassy’s sets has witnessed what special kind of atmosphere and energy she manages to create with her House-Sound. When Cassy is behind the decks, sitting around or hanging at the bar never really is an option, as it is rather probable everyone finds themselves dancing. Her very own way of fusing deep, minimal and sexy records is highly exceptional and it creates a very intoxicating, special groove. Do not miss !

Cassy will be joined by Portable , who will be performing tracks from his forthcoming album , out on Sud , May / June .

Completing the bill will be our residents , Lakuti , Marco Shuttle , Nick Craddock , Special guests Stefano & newbie to Sud , Tristan Watkins aka Phonopsia .

I have been listening to Tristan’s mixes for quite some time now & they are great & i for one am looking forward to his Sud debut .

After the great visual display from Squint in December , he will be back again with Brittski .

We will be back @ the Rhythm Factory …16 – 18 Whitechapel Road , London E1 1EW .

10 pm – 6 am with a new & improved sound in Room 1 .

As usual , book your place on the £8 list by emailing :
