4th Birthday | ESP Institute
Cutloose 4th Birthday
ESP Institute Party
Lovefingers [Los Angeles | Blackdisco | ESP Institute]
+ Special Guest Jonny Nash [ESP Institute | Land of Light]
Saturday 20th October 2012
The Roadhouse, Manchester
11pm – Late
Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit we told you it was going to be a special party – one we’ve had in the pipeline for sometime, and one we’re delighted to have sorted for your auditory pleasure.
Lovefingers (aka Andrew Hogge) is a fully fledged member of the global disco elite. His record label, ESP Institute, is a showcase of his eclectic tastes – a galaxy of quality productions from the likes of Japan’s
finest, Cos Mes, Chida, the UK’s Soft Rocks and supreme collaborations with the likes of Justin Vandervolgen, Lexx and Prins Thomas. Releases on the label are sought after collector’s items – often selling out immediately. A Los Angeles native, Lovefingers has hosted Blackdisco Social Club since 2001, which has spawned a well known edit series – in a digital age full of shitty ableton edits, Blackdisco has kept true to its form, compiling and editing compelling gems that receive regular plays from the likes of DJ Harvey and Todd Terje. We can’t forget the internationally acclaimed lovefingers.org mix of 999 songs has had an undeniable influence on discerning music fans. Also one half of the Stallions alongside Lee Douglas, Lovefingers has performed across the globe, from Australia to Japan, UK and Europe and back.In addition, we’re thrilled to welcome Jonny Nash, representing the Land of Light project. Keen observers of ESP Institute’s recent output will no doubt be familiar with the laid back, richly detailed style of music that Johnny engages in. A new album poised to drop comes with the proviso “that if you don’t have time to really listen, please do not buy this record. If your mind is not ready to unwind, please do not buy this record” – the track snippets we’ve heard have blown us away, with some beautiful music in the offing.
As we enter our fifth year we’ll save you the usual bullshit about birthday parties! Just expect the usual adherence to quality music and a riotous dancefloor!
