The Moodclub events have reached the ripe age of five. Time doesn’t stand still, and neither do we: in the meantime, a digital music label called Moodclub Music has followed, and now we’re back to bring you a final birthday celebration at club Silo.
Yes, you got that right: the very last Thursday night, the end of an era. The time of spending Fridays in bed is over for us. We spent years and years worth of Fridays in bed. And did we love it.
For this very special occasion indeed, we invited a very inspirational Belgian duo: Spirit Catcher. Worldwide, Jean Vanesse and Thomas Sohet are amongst the hottest producers in dance music right now, a description we don’t use lightly. Their excellent debut artist album Night Vision, released earlier this year, is testament to this status, becoming album of the issue in many leading dance magazine around the world.
One look at their Myspace page shows you where the boys will be performing in the next months: Lithuania, Brazil, Hungary, Georgia, La Coruña, Milan, Bristol, Nijmegen, Budapest and Rome. And Moodclub, Leuven of course.
Both Jean & Thomas have a diversity of experience to bring to the table and a wide variety of influences. These range from Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones to classic 80s boogie sounds like Prince, Chic/Nile Rogers, and Detroit techno pioneers such as Juan Atkins and Derrick May.
Spirit Catcher have become one of Europe's most exciting production partnerships and live acts since they began 7 years ago. In that time they’ve clocked up the impressive list of labels that they’ve worked for and seem to have become everyone’s favorite remixer, sprinkling their deep future disco sounds over a list of artists as long as your arm. And then there’s also their Only Freak guise, under which they release records on what is no doubt the hottest label in the world right now: Freerange Records.
For this exclusive night, Jean and Thomas will bring their fierce live show to Moodclub, which, like their album, has its roots in the origins of electronic music, using a classic midi dance music set-up using a mixing desk, effects and live keyboards.
So, whether you are a student, a working class hero, a party animal, dancer, dj, nerd or beauty, join us for this final celebration on October 16th. And if 5 Years Of Moodclub weren’t enough, it’s Pierre De La Rivière’s and Jonni Gratts’ birthday party as well. Few reasons to stay home, we would think.
One last word of advice: check out the Spirit Catcher videos on Youtube.
See you at Silo!
