SOCIETY : FREE PARTY TOMORROW WITH ROBERT OWENS & ROCKY (X-PRESS 2)

Posted in 80's, Acid house, Chicago House, Italo Disco with tags , , , , , on February 22, 2012 by Knockturnal

After the huge success of the fourth SOCIETY warehouse party with DJ Pierre, we return to our basement with another Chi-town legend, Robert Owens, for another night of true House sounds – mostly old, some new; all incredible.

ROBERT OWENS is a man that needs no introduction, and the DSS basement is where Mr Owens comes into his own. It’s rare that Robert gets the chance to play in such intimate surroundings and it allows him to dig deep and play the stuff that really gets him jackin’ – and our parties often end up with the golden-voiced maestro singing to our lovely crowd. To say it’s special is an understatement.

ROCKY started DJing in the mid 80s, before being caught up in the whole acid house thing and getting carried along with the wave, landing a residency at London’s Yellow Book in 89 and getting matey with the Boys Own crew, making regular appearances at their events. Remixes for the likes of the Farm followed before Rocky, Diesel and Ashley Beedle formed X-Press 2 and released the seminal ‘Muzik Express’. The team went on to land a 6 month residency at Cream in the nineties and score some massive singles including ‘Lazy’ with David Byrne that went to number 2 in the charts. Rocky came down to one of our nights at DSS and loved it – he asked about playing and…well…that’s a no-brainer – we’re honoured to say the least.

The SOCIETY residents CLASS OF 808 DJs will be bringing the heat as always, as will JOSH CAFFE, ALEX WALE, and guests, playing sounds from Detroit, Chicago, the UK and beyond + Don’t miss WANARB’S own HAZMAT playing an exclusive Italo set!

Our previous events have seen the Dalston basement transformed into east London’s take on Ron Hardy’s Muzic Box, with an untouchable atmosphere and party people jackin’ to the sounds of 80′s Chicago house ‘til the small hours. Nowhere else can you dance in a cosy basement club with Robert Owens singing and dancing along with you.
