Plus live modular special guests.
Basement of Ace Hotel, Shoreditch,
100 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6JQ
Following monthly residencies at Ace Hotel New York and a weekender at Ace Hotel Palm Springs, New York based label Throne of Blood hook up with Richard Norris to present a new monthly party at the Ace Hotel Shoreditch.
The party is a residency for Richard Norris, of the Grid, Time and Space Machine and Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (with Erol Alkan). Richard will be playing analogue, uptempo basement jams, as featured on his new vinyl/download EP ‘Freaks’/’Yeah’, out Sept 5th on Throne Of Blood.
There will be special guests each month. First up is Hardway Brothers/Throne Of Blood DJ/artist Sean Johnston. As well as partnering Andrew Weatherall for the A Love From Outer Space nights, Sean has released tracks on Throne Of Blood, and remixes ‘Freaks’ on Richard’s TOB release.
There will be live modular synth action each night. The London modular synth scene is a small but growing concern. People are discovering the joys of this type of synth, which is unpredictable, infinitely expandable and phenomenal for live performance. The players ride freestyle on bulky, Frankenstein like instruments that look like a cross between Lego, a telephone exchange and a bomb. No performance is the same
