SMILE PRESENTS DAVE ANGEL AND MARK BROOM
Following some absolute rocking parties in Singapore, Spain and Poland the Smile crew have wasted no time in racking up the next party. Hitting Mass in Brixton on December 8th. This month we are very pleased to be bringing you the launch of the event here in London.
Room 1 will be a room of big room sounds offering techno as it should be. Open-minded and minimal it intends to find strength in narrative. The line up features two truly exciting homegrown talent in the shape of Dave Angel and Mark Broom. You can expect their veteran sets to show you exactly why both artists are revered as a dancefloor’s DJ. Pulling from years of experience both behind the decks and in the studio they are guaranteed to deliver.
Dave Angel is nothing less than legendary in the history of acid house and later techno. Since his 1989 'ardcore debut (a remix of Eurythmics' 'Sweet Dreams' which charted) and tracks like 'Brother From Jazz', '3rd Symphony' and 'Airborne' he's wrought elegantly patterned and tightly programmed abstract techno: deep, jazzy motor city homages which align him more with John Beltran, Dan Curtin and Eddie Flashin' Fowlkes than any of his British contemporaries. Behind the decks, he's become one of a legion of British DJs - Colin Favor, Luke Slater and Colin Dale - to play hard, fast and vicious sets every weekend in Europe's most 'lost it' clubs, yet get fewer dates and less recognition on home territory.
Joining Dave is one of the hardest working men in Dance music. Mark Broom, a veteran in his own right whose productions have been wide ranging to say the least. From a variety of labels and sub genres he has made a deep imprint on today ever evolving face of dance music.
Room 2 explores the strands that lie in initial inspirations for techno. From George Clinton to the DFA, this will be a room to experience and disco the way it should.
