After our hugely enjoyable 9th year Birthday celebrations ( thanx to some of you for the incredible support you’d given us and thanx also to the dj’s on the night , Prosumer & Tama Sumo for laying down the excellent music in the basement & the TotheBone Dj’s for their wonderful contribution in the bar ) ; we return to this excellent basement space for more of the same really .
When the clock strikes midnight , we will be welcoming you to the basement of the Camp for our Halloween extravaganza , our first Halloween outing in about 5 years .
Record shop and record label – Smallville , from hamburg , run by Peter Kersten aka Lawrence/Sten & Julius Steinhoff will be debuting their label night in London for the 1st time ever .
Our relationship with Peter Kersten aka Lawrence/Sten dates back 5 years
When he debuted his live set for the 1st time in London @ Süd’s xmas bash . Since then every 2nd Saturday of December , London has seen a
Süd & Dial meet up , which has seen performances from Lawrence himself , Efdemin , Rndm , Pantha Du Prince , David Lieske & even a special guest thrown in for good measure ; last year – Dj Jus Ed .
This time around we decided to throw the spotlight on Smallville Records which has become a by word for the highest quality House & Techno .
The record shop itself first opened it’s doors to the public in 2005 then followed the label in 2006 .
Smallville , the label has seen some impeccable music from a stellar roster : Move D & Benjamin Brunn , Sten , Stl , Denis Karimani , Jacek Sienkiewicz , Steinhoff & hammouda , Lowtec , Dionne e.t.c.
A bit on the Artists Playing on The night :
To any self respecting lover of electronic music Peter kersten’s guises as Lawrence & Sten should stand for high quality .
Peter kersten’s output as Lawrence shimmers and glides along the dancefloor with aching melancholy and subtle melodies . Bubbling with deep house rhythms, subtle electronic nuances and delicate chords .
Heavily influenced by Detroit , instead of doing a carbon copy of Detroit , he firmly puts his own twist on proceedings , in doing so , he completely introduces his own unique sound .
His Sten guise offers a more muscular take on this sound and is firmly rooted on the dancefloor .
Peter Kersten has four albums under his belt for labels such as Ladomat , Novamute , Dial & most recently tokyo’s Mule Electronic , as well as 2 albums under his Sten guise on Dial and several 12” ‘s for labels such as Dial , Mule , Sender , Spectral , Kompakt e.t.c.
His much in demand dj sets as well as live sets have seen him travel and play in clubs across the globe and Dial Records host a regular night @ Berlin’s infamous Panoramabar .
Julius Steinhoff ( London Debut )
Julius Steinhoff will be playing for the very first time in London on this date .
Julius and Peter Kersten first launched Smallville Records the shop in May 2005 and the label in 2006 . Julius’s entry into production is quite a fresh one but boy has he made a mark with excellent releases alongside trusted friends Hammouda & Dionne and even the mighty Jus Ed got in on the action with the sublime remix of “Touch” , Juliu’s offering alongside Dionne .
Julius has a lot of experience as a dj having played at many clubs across Europe so expect the finest in house and techno on the night .
Lowtec : (London Debut )
Jens Kuhn known to many as Lowtec is the man behind the much lauded , Hardwax affiliated Workshop imprint .
Jens Kuhn’s strong passion for electronic music goes beyond the Workshop label however ; Jens has long been plying the discerning collectors in us , with the finest house and techno cuts on labels such as Out To Lunch , Move D’s excellent Source Records , Combination , Playhouse ( the excellent “ In Fail we trust “ would be my pick as far as releases on Playhouse are concerned ) . His recent excellent outings – Workshop 006 , His offering on Smallville , not to mention his latest ep titled “Angstrom EP” on Polyfon .
For the first time ever in London Lowtec will be unveiling his live set to our local audience .
No warm up sets from residents this time around , just straight in with the Smallville Crew with the very best in House & Techno .
Smallville are also known for their visual sensibilities with great cover art for their releases as well as flyers .
We are cooking up a special image to commemorate the Halloween event with their long time collaborator and artist Stefan Marx .
Smallville will also be playing a hand as far as the visuals are concerned on the night .
So an overall Smallville experience then awaits us on Halloween !
Outrageous outfits on the night are strongly encouraged !!
The upstairs bar @ The Camp will be open from 7pm on the night so why not start your evening there before heading downstairs when it hits midnight .
hope you can join us
