• The Minimalists present the underground roots session with Ben Westbeech
• Süd Electronic basement session featuring Portable, live + residents
The Mothership's little monthly sister, The Othership is back at the 333 in July, and every second Friday of the month after that.
Upstairs we welcome Ben Westbeech.
A while back now – Ben gave a demo tape to all around hero Gilles Peterson who listened to it after the club in his car – and promptly decided to sign Ben to his new project, Brownswood Recordings.
Ben has a love of all things soul, jazz and danceable, but with a sure love of the underground, which is what gives his sound an edge, whether singing with his band or semi-live with his laptop.
Ben's release, So Good Today was a gold nugget for the soul clubs, before being remixed by Osunlade and catapulted into the wider scene, being regularly rinsed in clubs by house heads as well as radio stations worldwide. Now with his debut album out there, Ben has a DJ residency at Gilles Peterson's new night at East Village, has featured mixes on Radio One's Breezeblock and Podcasts all over, as well as playing with Ninja Tune and festivals worldwide. A blend of House, Electro, Soul and Old Skool eclecticism will provide the perfect way to get things going upstairs.
Supporting Ben will be residents The Minimalists playing a roots set of classic House and vintage Techno cuts. From Detroit to New York via Chicaco, digging out and dusting off those extra special vinyl to continue the house party vibe. Frankie Knuckles or Rhyhtim is Rhythim anyone? Model 500?. Ron Trent; do you remember House?
Deep downstairs on the stage we welcome the Süd basement session.
Consistently putting out creative and inspirational underground tracks and hosting some of the best parties in London; we are honored to welcome Süd Electronic, and fortunate to have a live show from Portable aka Bodycode, who is flying in from Lisbon.
Portable's recent release Power Of Ten on Süd Electronic has – and still is receiving critical acclaim worldwide for all its sensibilities, hidden depths and diversity. As well as his releases on the US heavyweight label, Spectral Sound. Portable is a master of the universal underground sound, captivating and connecting dance floors with his tribal rhythms and intricate production, the sound of the past, the future and the present within us all.
Supported by the Süd Electronic DJs, Lakuti, Nick Craddock and Mohson.
As usual we'll be transforming the place with loads of visuals and fun from cMetz, Zee and more.
