Doors: 22:30 // Adm: Free before 12/ e8 after
First up is Lasertom and The Blast Crew, a vehicle for the musical experimentation of Simon Cullen and friends.Formerly one half of late,lamented electrofunkers Les Bien, this new project is all about trippy 21stCentury disco grooves and blissed out horn fanfares. We already think they’re a bit special after they played for us back in December.
Headlining is Mano Le Tough. Hailing from Greystones and based in Berlin, Mano makes disco influenced house music which is characterized by an emphasis on melody and emotion. Mano released his “warhorn e.p.” on Prins Thomas’ Internasjonal imprint in 2009 and has also released tracks on District of Corruption. More exciting releases are lined up in the coming months, a 12″ on Mirau musik featuring Tensnake and Azari & III remixes as well as a second 12″ on Internasjonal with a Chateau Flight remix.
Mano djs and performs live regularly around Europe and has appeared at the Sonar in Barcelona and the Electric Picnic and Oxegen festivals in Ireland and he runs a monthly party at Kleine Reise in Berlin called Passion Beat.
