The end of May Bank Holiday weekend will be upon us in a number of hours and I am sure you would like to make the best out of it. Egg London took this chance and is offering a weekend full of fun.
Global talent agency, Blakksheep, who are based in Vienna and Berlin, use the combined 30 year experience of their founders – Harald Reiterer, Tina Panitzke and Simo Lorenz – to put together a night of thundering techno.
Drumcode’s Sam Paganini is a perennial Egg favourite, with a relentlessly driving sound that has taken him around the world, while also landing him on other leading labels such as Cocoon and Plus8. He’s joined by fellow Italian and Drumcode signing Sasha Carassi, who is following in Paganini’s slipstream, collaborating with the likes of Joseph Capriati and releasing world renowned acts such as Slam and Matador on his Globox and Phobiq labels.
German duo Johannes Heil and Markus Suckut have both been part of their country’s techno scene since the late ’90s, but last year they joined forces to launch their own Exile label. Putting out a series of untitled 12″s together, the results has been a dark, uncompromising minimal sound culminating in Johannes Heil’s ‘The Black Light’ album at the end of 2015, hailed by some as the best techno album of the year.
Stutgart’s Simo Lorenz, resident of the city’s famous Lehmann Club, also bring his technical techno sound, condensing down his usual 8 hour sets to a compact burst, while Paolo Tamoni, another respected techno export from Napoli, shows why he’s played alongside everyone from Jeff Mills to James Ruskin. Final act from the Blakksheep roster is JAM resident Zøe, with Egg resident Kyle E bringing his distinct sound too.
The Promised Land celebrates its 12th Birthday uniting all the house music tribes, old and new, with a massive Bank Holiday celebration featuring Chicago House pioneers Fast Eddie (Acid House set & Live PA) + Marshall Jefferson, + the UK’s Terry Farley, Smokin Jo (Trade) Colin Dale, Brandon Block & Alex P and Shut Up & Dance amongst a huge line up spread across Egg LDN’s 5 rooms.
With a string of unforgettable events that have brought so many crazy and fun-loving people together over the years, The Promised Land throws an incredible party for its good friends and newcomers alike creating lasting memories for a like-minded family of house music fans.
Headlining Egg LDN’s huge new Garden Main Room are Chicago legends Marshall Jefferson ‘House Music Anthem’ and Fast Eddie (‘Acid Thunder/Hip House’) alongside the UK’s Boys Own party founder, Terry Farley, Colin Dale and Space Terrace Ibiza original residents Alex P & Brandon Block. On the Terrace Smokin Jo fires up the current house sounds alongside Arkoss and DJ Mets, whilst jungle pioneers Shut Up & Dance lead the charge in the Apothecary. SoulAvengers and a surprise Guest DJ headline on the Ground Floor whilst The Loft lays down the disco, funk and soul groove.
Transforming Egg LDN into a heavenly space with ethereal white themed decor, The Promised Land are urging clubbers to wear something white to celebrate their 12th Anniversary
“We’re so proud of supporting our music & DJs from the very start, It was the same DJs and artists we use to rave and listen to on pirate radio stations many years ago and we feel proud of the fact that Promised Land has kept the flame alight for music that has been forgotten to so many people. We love the fact that PL has given the younger generation the opportunity to experience the music and togetherness that we did throughout those golden years”
