After our intimate Birthday celebrations with Terence Fixmer, Redshape and Woo York, we return with our biggest lineup to date on Saturday July 11th at Oval Space. The party is an all day all night affair, running from 2pm - 6am and will see the much loved London club have its newly configured sound system put through its paces by the likes of Michael Mayer, Extrawelt live, Alex Niggemann, Christian Loffler Live and a very special guest yet to be announced.
The now legendary Michael Mayer is boss of the highly respected Kompakt label and is one of the most influential DJs in the world. Weaving together long and story telling sets of house and techno from across the ages, he is also a super producer with an enviable and often referenced back catalogue. An integral part in the way that techno has developed in recent years, his name is synonymous with the melancholic sound that has become so popular. We are so privileged to have this man play for us and can’t wait for what’s in store.
Next up are an act who’ve gained an almost cult status, Cocoon duo Extrawelt. Known for their much hyped specialist live sets, they will be doing their improvised, on the fly thing on the night. One of the best acts to emerge from the minimal scene in mid-2000s, it was James Holden that first recognised their talent, with the pair then going on to win many accolades in the coming years. Expect tough, hypnotic loops, trippy synth patterns and plenty more electronic excitement from them.
Our recently announced Special Guest is none other that Robag Wruhme. Having associations with labels such as Kompakt and Pampa Records, the man is known for his wonderfully warped tunes that are often charted by some of the biggest names out there. His ability to find the balance between melancholic and banging is inimitable and we're so excited to have him play for us.
A man very much in the spotlight in the moment is Christian Löffler, known for his combination of both melancholy and euphoria in his productions. With releases on 20:20 Vision and his own imprint Ki Records, this in-demand producer will perform his much acclaimed live set. Adding to this huge bill will be Poker Flat and Watergate producer and creative DJ, Alex Niggemann, who’s seen support from the likes of Tale of Us and Dixon recently.
Rounding off the bill are our staple residents and Warm Up boss Aidan Doherty, who’s rise on the London circuit over the last 2 years has been more than impressive. Rachel Lyn steps up again after two immersive sets from our first birthday, and Qash and Tom Law complete the proceedings.
No summer party is complete without food, so there will be a variety of vendors on site providing you with some much needed loveliness to keep you partying through the hours, and of course we also have some extra special production in store, transforming the venue in a big way.
