Detroit Swindle (4 hour set)
Byron The Aquarius
The third collaboration of specially curated events between Off Beat and Family Tree Events brings us to Hidden! Heading up the Blue Room for an extended 4 hour set we have Amsterdam legends Detroit Swindle and down in The Den we have jazzy house maestro Byron The Aquarius supported by the prolific K15
DETROIT SWINDLE [4 HR EXTENDED SET]
Bringing out regular releases through their record label Heist, and curating live shows consisting of entirely analogue hardware, Detroit Swindle have proven to be knockout house producers from the get-go. In addition to this, the boys are also enthusiastic record diggers and synth hunters, something which shows through their DJ sets, which range from rare cuts of disco all the way through to african inspired funk. Detroit Swindle have proven to shine in their selections time and time again, and we're sure this latest visit to Hidden will be no different.
BYRON THE AQUARIUS [2 HRS]
DJ sets that burst with juicy Jazz-filled Detroit styled house - this can only describe Byron the Aquarius. Since being trained in Jazz from an early age, Byron took a shine to house music, and has had an extremely eventful musical career as a result. Having releases on Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature and Kyle Hall’s Wild Oats Music, and collaborating with artists such as Flying Lotus, Onra, Kai Alice and Jay Scarlett, we can slowly build up a picture of this man’s genius. Recently he has been flying across the world on huge billings alongside Moodymann and playing at Dekmantal, and scoring plenty of gigs with Theo Parrish and other Detroit royalty. Expect music laden with intricate instrumentals (he's bringing his own synths!) and astonishing groove.
K15 [2 HRS]
Tottenham's K15 is simply an extremely talented musician. Like Bryon he shares an astute warmth to melodies and carries an incredible soulful Detroit atmosphere to everything he touches. His most notable production, on the Wild Oats imprint Insecurities EP, has been dubbed by many to being one of the best house releases of 2014. His flawless process of mixing graceful ambient synth chords progressions alongside sturdy claps and kicks allowed for this groovy, yet elegantly raw masterpiece to be created. Alongside this, his DJ sets are as versatile as his productions - expect an unrivaled exhibition of Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop, Broken-beat and swinging Latin House grooves to grace the Hidden den.
