Astral People are proud to announce the next stage of ‘CONCEPT’ a back-to-back club series with multiple parties in intimate venues. After the massive announcement of the inaugural CONCEPT with the likes of SHED, Andy Stott, Phaeleh & Shigeto, we’re ready to take you to the next level with UK innovator ONEMAN at Goodgod Small Club and Garage figurehead DJ EZ at Civic Underground.
Little compares to DJ EZ’s profound accuracy behind the mixing booth; a skill he has honed over twenty years of bringing UK Garage to the forefront of contemporary electronic music. A fellow graduate of London’s Pirate Radio boom of the early 90s, EZ’s DimensionsFM streamlined the building blocks of Garage, paving the genre to bigger things. Having since been a major part in stations like FreekFM and KISSFM (his current home since 2000), EZ’s profile took a major swing with the release of the very first ‘Pure Garage’ compilation in 2000 – a series that would spawn chart topping entries and a push for Garage to hit the mainstream.
With a great deal of current artists owing a lot to his presence, EZ has been the catalyst for a very new world of superstars. You just know your night will be memorable when EZ shows up, so don’t miss the very rare chance to see a legend in action.
Backing up CONCEPT’s first night is fellow UK DJ ~ Oneman.
With a reputation as one of the UK’s finest and most sought-after selectors, Oneman is one of very few touring DJs literally changing the face of the game. A figure synonymous with Rinse.FM and the culture behind it, Oneman (aka Steve Bishop) has taken his Garage origins and perfected them into an aggressive, genre-bending sound that, as of 2013, is as unpredictable as utterly inspired. Whilst DJing, remixing and collaborating with contemporaries including Jamie XX, Ben UFO and Four Tet, Oneman is one of very few DJs to submit compilations for both the highly respected Fabric LIVE and Rinse.FM mix series. Having just kicked off his gut-busting ‘Solitaire’ mix series, Oneman will be showcasing his heaving party style the whole dance world wants a piece of.
