ROOFTOP SERIES

Join us as we welcome in the Spring with our new series of Sunday rooftop events. Sunblock and Sunglasses suggested.

Line Up:

PEARSON SOUND - UK
Hessle Audio, Darkestral Recordings, SunkLo
Releasing a critically acclaimed FABRICLIVE compilation in March he’s since remixed and opened for one of music’s most respected acts, Radiohead, in New York. Having travelled across Europe on the first Hessle Audio tour of the continent he’s also DJd on the London Eye, lectured at Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid and he’s constantly finding himself in new and interesting positions; whether that’s following Moodymann on a Sunday afternoon in a London basement or pre-empting Rusko at an open air festival.

Still very much a key component in the running of the Hessle Audio label, whose ‘116 & Rising’ compilation managed to emphatically collate their history whilst simultaneously looking to the future and their imminent 20th release, Kennedy’s output as Ramadanman may have ceased, but his subsequent work as Pearson Sound and as Chicago house ‘legend’ Maurice Donovan commands much the same level of gravitas with long sold out white label releases and a 12” on Night Slugs.

Musically, he’s looking forward, refusing to sit still or be easily categorised. And with his latest productions feeding more from the classic notions of 4x4 dancefloor music and his sets retaining every inch of precision and his selection spreading out further as his knowledge of music grows he has established himself as one of the UK’s most in demand artists.

TESSELA - UK
All City, Poly Kicks, R&S Records
"I've never been one for subtlety really," says Ed Russell of his production work as Tessela. "If you spend too long on something you sap the life out of it, it becomes a bit dry. I prefer trying to bottle some of the energy you can get in the studio." Unsubtle Russell's music may be, but it's certainly not lacking in complexity. Sure, the structures are brash and drop-oriented, and the arrangements sparse, deploying the minimum number of elements for maximum effect. But that directness serves as a counterbalance to Russell's provocatively off-kilter grooves, the kind attempted by many in the wake of labels like Hessle Audio and Swamp81, but mastered by few.
