If you missed the Queen’s street party on Sunday, fear not Krankbrother are holding their own in Shoreditch on Saturday 18th June! Bringing together the likes of Derrick Carter, Horse Meat Disco and Mike Servato (and of course Krankbrother) this has to be one of the highlights of the summer in London.
After last years success which brought together the likes of Kyle Hall and FunkinEven Krankbrother have gone bigger this year. Starting their summer season off in style is Krankbrother. Having begun in 2008 throwing small parties at Elephant Castle’s Corscia Studios these two brothers have gone from strength to strength with the DJing duo headlining numerous festivals and nights over the past few years. In terms of music policy, uplifting house and disco vibes are top of the bill with an occasional turn to the darker sides of techno and tech house depending. Attracting a pretty diverse vibrant crowd the double acts’ energy and levels of production are certainly one to behold.
Following on from Krankbrother is Derrick Carter. This old-skool Chicago DJ is the perfect act to have at a daytime street party. Mixing stereotypical Chicago house beats with ’90s vocals his productions will certainly get you moving. As mentioned Carter’s sets are rooted in house, but he frequently adventures into disco, soul and jazz classics which brings a nostalgic feel to his sets.
If the above two haven’t sent you to into euphoria then the London Collective Horse Meat Disco may tip you over the edge. Now well into their seventh year together, Horse Meat Disco have established themselves with continued sold out residences at The Eagle in London’s Vauxhall, Lux in Lisbon and Tape in Berlin. Inspired by New York’s club scene in the ’70s and ’80s their music tends to blend classic disco with the emerging nu-disco genre currently being developed. The merging of the two make pleasant hearing for the listener bringing an soulful element to proceedings.
Last is possibly one of the biggest ambassadors of Detroit house music today – Mike Servito. Servito has developed a reputation to be able to move his audiences with a seamless mix of cross-genre fusions. His main influences come from 80’s Detriot radio just as the electronic dance scene was making waves stateside. After a brief hiatus, following instant success in 1995, Servito was lured back in 2002 and has never looked back. A reputation as a one of the best DJs technically and with an amazing ear for mixing the most hypnotic techno sounds, Servito will set you up perfectly for the after party.
