AKA AKA ROAR VS. DEADLY RHYTHM: CLAUDE VONSTROKE + PEARSON SOUND //
On FRIDAY 24th JUNE the AKA AKA ROAR crew touch down at LIFE once more in a special co-promotion with DEADLY RHYTHM, presenting an unbelievably exciting line up with the dual headliners: CLAUDE VONSTROKE and PEARSON SOUND (formerly Ramadanman).
“Claude VonStroke does not scowl and look mean while he DJs. He does not pretend to know everything and he will be nice to you and your friends. He is grateful to be doing music for a living and he knows that the reason people go to parties is to have fun. If you want to act cool and not have any fun then please do not book him.” – dirtybirdrecords.com
When the website of the DJ you’re booking has a statement like the one above, you know you’re in for a treat. Detroit born VONSTROKE is a man who needs very little introduction – ever since his first release “Deep Throat” and the creation of his Dirtybird record label, he’s been one of the most in demand DJs in House music, playing across the globe.
He’s got a busy year planned, with forthcoming releases on UK label Nightslugs as well as 2 new singles due for release on his own label. He’s been a big favourite of Deadly Rhythm for years, and we’re hugely excited to have him playing. Check out “Who’s Afraid Of Detroit?”, below, a perfectly composed piece of slow and steady bass, churning melodies and sharp, killer rhythms. A real beauty that builds and builds in atmosphere…
Not happy with just one headliner we thought we’d add in another. PEARSON SOUND, aka Ramadanman, is one of the most exciting artists to come out of the UK in recent years.
Co-founder of the mighty Hessle Audio, and one mighty fine DJ as well, Pearson Sound has developed a formidable name for himself and a discography that is getting a bit ridiculous for someone so young. “Glut”, “Work Them” and “Blanked” (below – check the swirling, echoing vocals, set against aggressive beats and synths) have all been firm favourites.
As well as this deadly duo of DJ’s powering through the night in Room One, there will be more heavy vibes and DJ sets in Room Two from the AKA & DEADLY RHYTHM RESIDENTS.
As expected, this event is selling out first… All £8 Early Bird tickets are now gone, but £10 Advance tickets are on sale and available online from FATSOMA and TICKET WEB. Make sure you pick up your ticket soon to avoid disappointment!
