MIGHTY presents Spirit Catcher Live Friday November 14th
San Francisco, CA (October 21, 2008) – MIGHTY plays host to the The Belgium Dynamic Duo of Jean Vanesse and Thomas Sohet famously known around the world as Spirit Catcher on Friday November 14th 2008. This event is part of a brief 2 week North American tour and marks Spirit Catcher’s San Francisco debut. Vanesse & Sohet will be performing their fierce 2 hour live show. With a combination of keyboards and percussion, expect an explosive cross pollination of electronic funk, disco, house, and deep rolling basslines certain to excersice Mighty's massive sound system.
Spirit Catcher - In their seven years together they've sprinkled their deep future disco sounds onto an impressive list of labels such as Freerange, SAW Recordings, Moodmusic, 2020Vision and NRK and remixed a list of artists as long as your arm. If you've been following electrohouse closely, you might have caught Spirit Catcher cuts on compilations such as Ewan Pearson's 'Sci-Fi-Hi-Fi Vol.1' and Seamus Haji's 'Sessions'.
Both have a diversity of experience and a wide variety of influences citing Kings of Jazz, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones through to classic 80s boogie sounds of Prince and Chic/Nile Rogers and Detroit techno pioneers such as Juan Atkins and Derrick May as major forces in their own productions. Jean's father is a sound engineer so he grew up in and around studios, constantly meeting musicians and singers. At the age of 12 he had his first drum lesson and began experimenting with analog synths releasing his first record at the tender age of 17. Thomas on the other hand worked his way through the musical ranks playing in various Belgium funk bands, gigging all over the country.
Also on the bill - Scottish transplant Chris Orr ( bananaspam.com) whose 22 year dj career has amassed a huge collection representing every conceivable genre.
