We welcome Picnic to Farringdon for their 8th birthday celebrations. The London crew has long held a place at the heart of the capital’s underground scene, building a strong ethos built upon some of Europe’s most discerning house and techno artists. Over the years they’ve brought their sound all over the capital, while more recently they’ve held showcases at haunts like Hoppetosse in Berlin. The artists most frequently affiliated with Picnic are the kind that are best known for their deep digging prowess, and the cast of talents they bring to EC1 is no exception. Landing for their debut with us are Laurine & Cecilio, the Berlin duo who first rose to prominence as part of Slow Life. Like Del Garda, this beloved crew is comprised of a small group of vinyl devotees, and their DJ sets always traverse various styles and eras loosely tied in house and techno. They also run a killer label, but it’s through their skills behind the decks that Laurine and Cecilio have caught most people’s attention. Christian AB & Quest also go back-to-back. Having cut their teeth on the London scene over the last few years, today both DJs are busy bringing their classy sound together all over Europe, but this March is the first time they’ll link up in Farringdon. Picnic’s own Andy Luff also joins us.
Update: In light of current world events, we regret to announce that Francesco Del Garda is unable to join us this Saturday. To compensate for his absence, we’ve invited another expert digger with a supreme taste in house, techno and electronic music of various forms, Truly Madly. Having previously played with Picnic and been on our radar for some time now, we’re stoked to welcome him for his Saturday night debut with us. Truly joins Laurine & Cecilio, Christian AB & Quest and Andy Luff for what should be a night of highbrow selections celebrating Picnic’s anniversary in fitting style.
