London bound party obsessives Overrated come together with MK powerhouse, Tahanan, for a daytime summer soirée, in association with the NTIA. #Nightlifematters
★ Promoters ★
From its humble beginnings nearly 5 years ago, Overrated was the conception of an accidental warehouse party that has spiralled into what’s now a regular radio show on Hoxton FM, and sporadic and itinerant event movement across the capital. Playing host to artists including Marshall Jefferson, Jimpster, Moodymanc and Pete Dafeet, the Overrated duo are no strangers to music that grooves.
Tahanan, also with a history in radio, have worked with tastemakers such as Eddie Richards, Terry Francis and Jordan Peak with a focus on stripped back affairs. This year marked a new chapter in the Tahanan story as they recently announced the beginning of their record label. With a very exciting schedule of records on the horizon, the imprint’s first release, curated by Greek national SEK and entitled Drunk Yoga, encompasses 3 original tracks which will be sure to get any warehouse kicking.
On July 30th, the two movements join together turning the infamous EGG LDN on its head for a day party that promises festival vibes and with a sterling line-up across two rooms, the outdoor terrace and ground floor looks to be a delight that will be tough to beat. You can bet, judging on their past performances, there will be some kind of computational light show to accompany the event.
★ Artists ★
The godfather of house music himself, Marshall Jefferson, will be headlining the Terrace. Frankly, few men have been as instrumental in the development of Chicago house music since the ‘80s as this man. Joining him is 20/20 vision legend and all round Jazz musician, Moodymanc, and the Greek national with a flurry of releases on labels including Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse Records, Hudd Traxx & Tahanan, Sek.
The Ground Floor is just as special, with living legend, Fabric & Wiggle regular ‘Evil’ Eddie Richards. Eddie has been dubbed the godfather of the Tech House movement and has been an integral part to the modern house scene. Playing alongside him is one half of the Leftback Records duo, Michael McLardy who will be sure to bring that dub techno vibe with him.
★ Food ★
Incredible food will be provided by the brilliant, Mama's Jerk, as featured in TimeOut and Buzz Feed, with locations at Street Feast and POP Brixton. If it's Jerk you want, then Jerk you'll get.
★ Night Time Industry Association ★
