DJ mix and video: James Zabiela
The tech-house superstar warms us up for his set at Marquee.
Mon Feb 18 2013
Have you been to Marquee—one of the venues that defined the ongoing (but perhaps fading) models-and-bottles clubbing era—since it’s reopened as a more DJ-oriented hotspot? Sure, you could say the place is playing catch-up with the EDM craze—but the place is a trip, with a full-on sound system, flashy-flash lighting and go-go action aplenty. They’ve don a pretty good job with the DJ booking as well (it probably helps that Sleepy & Boo are part of the team), with the likes of Danny Howells and Dubfire having already passed through. Now it’s James Zabiela’s turn: The tech- and progressive-house star will be playing the club on Friday, February 22. If you can’t wait till then, here’s a short-but-very-sweet set, culled from his beloved Paradigm Shift series of mixes, straight from the head honcho of the Born Electric label himself—with a video of the Zabiela-produced “The Healing” tossed in for good measure.
James Zabiela plays Marquee on Friday, Feb 22.
