As the 350 revelers looked on to see Derrick May lay his first vinyl down in the Rhythm Factory for our 1st Birthday last Easter Saturday, it was clear it was going to be an unforgettable night. 3 hours later, the lights came on to a still packed dance floor and the curtain closed to what was a remarkable way to mark our first anniversary. We'd like to thank everybody who made it to help up celebrate and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Now a few weeks down the line, we have the pleasure of announcing Munich's Harry Klein Records to be the next special guests for the 4th edition of the year. We have been waiting quite a while to be able to welcome Dario Zenker and Avatism to London, so we jumped on the opportunity and you will soon see why....
The following does not seek to lionise, rather it wishes to tell the amusing tale of a carnivorous, Kung Fu-loving Munich man who just happens to have that certain uuuhhh…factor. Dario Zenker, natural-born dancer and Mowgli-like wild boy was raised in Germany’s Deep South on a diet of Wu Tang, Gangstarr, Michael Jackson and sweet mustard.
2006 saw his first vinyl debut and since then he has produced releases, remixes and his own unique brand of house and techno on labels such as Vakant, Frozen Border and Time to Express, to name but a few. Founded by him, his brother and partner in crime Marco and longtime sidekick Mueller, Ilian Tape is their homegrown label, nurtured with much tender love since 2007. In 2009, the residents of Harry Klein joined forces to bring Harry Klein Records to life, captained by Julietta, Marco and himself. When he isn’t working his voodoo at dance rituals all over the world, both labels offer the perfect platform for him to translate and transmit his own distinguished sound from his enclave in Munich’s Turkish quarter. His inspiration? Life, love and dancing.
Thomas did not buy his first vinyl record when he was 10 years old, nor was he born out of the love of two underground jazz musicians. He had an extremely dull and standard childhood and can barely play the drums. He has, however, released his moody, small room music on labels such as Dumb Unit, Vakant and Haunt. With his productions already supported by artists of the caliber of Ellen Allien, Richie Hawtin, Magda and Seth Troxler, Avatism is now touring his new live set, bringing his intricate doom-laced grooves to the clubs.
Tickets will go on sale on 18 April, we strongly advise to get one due to the intimate capacity of the venue!
See you on the floor.
