Retox Special

  • We have an super special RETOX party to kick off the month of December on Sunday 7th at Sosho. Joining us upstairs will be very special DJ/Producer & UK house hero, Yousef! Bitten by the acid house bug at legendary rave metropolis 'Shellys' in 1991 after watching some of the first live sets from Carl Cox and Prodigy, Yousef has, since then, grabbed the global industry by the scruff of the neck, forcing his way in through sheer talent and determination. Residencies at Ministry Of Sound, Renaissance and most notably Cream set him on his path to the global circuit, where Yousef quickly became synonymous as one of dance music's global figures, a position he still holds to great acclaim. We first hooked up with him many moons ago by releasing his critically acclaimed UCMG/TIDE:EDIT CD, and subsequent albums followed on Renaissance, DMC, Cream, & of course Circus, his current acid house party that boasts a cataclysmic collection of dance musics leading players. His productions can be found on labels that include JBO, CR2, Sony, as well as his own Carioca imprint, and his remix talents span right across the board including Jamiroquai, Justice, & Carl Cox. His sets feature a mature and broad musical taste twisting through house, techno and electronica, we are sure he will raise the roof of Sosho this Sunday night! We also have a secret guest in the house, details coming soon… Downstairs this week we welcome along Bigger Deer Recordings with head honcho Lewis Ryder & special guest, Maher Daniel! This years resident at Space/Ibiza, Lewis has been confirmed for the 2009 season also, so things are on the up! His recently launched label, BDR, has hit djs from right across the board, the latest offering featuring a remix from our next guest, Maher Daniel who is flying in from Montreal, Canada. Maher can be caught gracing the decks on a frequent basis at one of North America’s best clubs, Stereo Afterhours, serenading the crowd with throbbing bass lines and blissful melodies. His production skills have clearly excelled, boasting a solid 12 releases on labels such as Sick Watona, Pure Substance and Reversible Records, as well as forthcoming releases on Symphonic and new imprint Harem Records by production duo Sultan and Ned Shepard, the latter two of which have asked him to run their A&R at Harem. We look forward to welcoming them both down. The party starts at 9pm and goes through till 6am, when the Monday morning carry on take over – details on the night… We hope to see you there! x
