Human Drizzle Presents is returning this December 5th, to Brixton’s Plan B – tickets available here.
We’ve taken some time out since our last party at Canavan’s. The aim was to take our Human Drizzle nights to the next level. We return now with a stellar line up at our biggest venue, and a belief that this is our boldest night yet.
The strength of a night can only really be judged by the quality of those performing, and we’re extremely proud to present to you two of the finest DJing talents currently operating on the European underground club scene; Berlin’s xxxy and London’s Fort Romeau.
Berlin-based Mancunian xxxy has built up a powerful following thanks to his signature blend of UKG and house. He has released, prolifically, on Ten Thousand Yen, Rinse, More Music, Well Rounded and Infrasonics, and his Rinse FM show has only strengthened his position as a unique and highly regarded voice on the UK underground scene.
2014 has been a consistently brilliant year for xxxy on the production front. In June, he released ‘Never Enough’ on Rinse; an up-tempo deep house banger, with a flicker of electro underneath a diva vocal sample.
That release also included ‘No More’, an emotive, oscillating house track.
Then, in August, came the ‘Goldfish’ EP on Doc Daneeka’s Ten Thousand Yen. The B-Side ‘Evade’, was more melodic yet less muscular than ‘Goldfish’, showing the flexibility in xxxy’s production.
Whichever direction xxxy’s productions take him in, his work always displays an acute appreciation for the dancefloor. 2012’s ‘Everything’ EP was no exception; three blinding party tracks, with none better than ‘Everything’.
To truly understand the scope of xxxy’s talent, though, you really have to go to the longer form. His slot on Rinse FM never disappoints, with May’s two-hour session particularly diverse.
We’re extremely excited that he’s making the trip over from Berlin for this night and we cannot wait to see him in action.
Fort Romeau’s brand of thoughtful disco and deftly crafted house has earned him a passionate fan base, with high quality releases on Live At Robert Johnson and Ghostly International. ‘The rainy day Todd Terje’ has enjoyed a relentless 2014 touring schedule, including a number of impressive festival slots, a mini-tour to the US and a couple of stints in the booth at Panorama Bar.
Long-time readers of Human Drizzle will have seen his releases mentioned on these pages frequently. His remix work is impressive enough, reworking Gold Panda and Jacques Greene to great effect in the last 18 months.
But it’s his own production work that really catches the eye. There is an understated class running through his releases, be it in in the restraint of ‘Stay True’, the old skool disco vibes of ‘I Knew’, or the smooth deep house of ‘Jetée’.
This is the tip of the iceberg in terms of what to expect from both of these guys, and we cannot stop ourselves from reiterating the pride in the Human Drizzle camp for securing them for this night.
In support, our old friends and long-time collaborators Paradise Forum will be supplying the residents of Brixton with their usual blend of funk, soul and house.
Finally, Human Drizzle’s very own Hot Karl will be running through some of the tracks of the year, for those keen to get down their nice and early.
To cap things off, we have a sensational venue hosting us. Plan B has long been one of London’s best clubs, and a look through the acts that have performed there in 2014 alone shows the regard it is held in.
This promises to be a massive night, one that we’re hugely excited about spending with you.
