GIG: Wbeezer & George FitzGerald @ Man Make Music, London
Our good friends, Man Make Music, are hosting a FREE event on Saturday 7th August that is gonna blow a hole in the roof of The Star of Bethnal Green in East London. Two of the UK’s most sought after dance music makers will be the ones damaging the aforementioned roof! London’s own Wbeezer will be performing live with his fresh blend of Detroit style house, and fellow Londoner George FitzGerald will be DJing alongside Bruk and Man Make Music residents Sketchy and Another Amit.
Having been described as “one of the most exciting new artists to come out of the UK”, the young man Wbeezer has had heads turning at events like Secret Sundaze and also Sonar in Barcelona. With an EP release on the Third Ear Recordings label – the label who released Kyle Hall‘s ‘Must See EP’ – things are really starting to hot up for him. This is also likely to be one of the only intimate live sets from Wbeezer in London this summer – so don’t miss it!
And who better to have supporting Wbeezer than George FitzGerald?! An old friend of the Man Make Music crew and an artist signed to the well respected Hot Flush Recordings label, home to such luminaries as Mount Kimbie, Scuba, Distance, Boxcutter and Joy Orbison. His track, Painted Jezebel, was also present on the recent Brownswood Electr*c compilation from Gilles Peterson‘s Brownswood label.
This ultra-fresh blend of house, 2-step and dubstep stylings seems to be just what the UK scene needed – what with the recent triumphs from a diverse selection of producers, including; Floating Points, Joy Orbison, Mount Kimbie, Untold, Blue Daisy and Kyle Hall, to name a handful. These artists are pushing the boundaries of that ever-evolving beast; dance music. Transferred back into it’s rightful home, the club environment, not much comes close to it out in London venues right now. That slick blend of hypnotic melodies, driving beats and basslines ensures feet keep shuffling until the late, late hours become the early, early hours.
