Hot KOKO set to host cool electro night from SebastiAn, Breakbot and the Reverend
Posted: 4th October 2010
Here's a spot-on line-up to look forward to at London's KOKO venue in North London, all courtesy of media-resource The Playground. The popular club will be hosting the debut London appearance of the Reverend Sound System (the electro side-project of Reverend and the Makers) as well as slots from French electro-heads SebastiAn and Breakbot plus much more.
The date to remember is 6th November 2010 and tickets are now on sale, priced at £12 for the whole night (Earlybirds have sold through now). The night runs from 9pm until 3am and is comprised of two rooms of sharp beats and electro heat.
Headliners SebastiAn and Breakbot both record minimal techno-pop for the Ed Banger imprint, as well as providing remixes for many acclaimed acts. SebastiAn's early releases include the club-hit "Smoking Kills" from 2005, as well as remix work for fellow countrymen Daft Punk plus Editors, Uffie and Cut Copy. His debut album is due at the end of the year/early 2011.
Breakbot has remixed heavier acts such as Digitalism, Sebastien Tellier and Late Of The Pier (and the smoother Royksopp) and released the popular pop-club classic "Baby I'm Yours". 2010 saw a collaborative remix of Air's "So Light Is Her Footfall" plus a minimix for the Annie Mac show.
Reverend Sound System features a few Makers members plus Sabres Of Paradise producer Jagz Kooner. This will be the first appearance in London for the new project, although they have been running monthly club nights in Sheffield for a while, often featuring special guests. This will be a live performance.
Other performers hail from the Kitsune stable - Punks Jump Up and Punx Soundcheck are set to rock room 2 alongside London's own electro-successes Chew Lips as well as another live act Losers which comprises XFM's Eddy Temple-Morris and ex-Cooper Temple Clause guitarist Tom Bellamy giving tracks from their debut album "Beautiful Losers" a run out.
Tickets for this night are expected to fly out so be quick!
