Playing bass for irrepressible stadium rockers Primal Scream would satisfy most musically, but not Simone Marie.
Her passion for DJing is as strong as ever and her deep record box reflects her wildly varied – but always on point – musical tastes.
Spiritland Talks: Anne Dudley & J.J. Jeczalik (Art of Noise) – (sold out)
This event is sold out.
We are delighted to announce a very special Spiritland Talks with two co-founders of Art of Noise, Anne Dudley and J.J. Jeczalik.
The Art of Noise are perhaps the UK’s most influential electronic music group, pushing a distinctive avant-garde pop sound created from a unique blend of synth-pop, classical music, film noir and cutting-edge sampling techniques, taking them from Dadaist studio experimentation to the Top Of The Pops studio.
Anne Dudley and J.J. Jeczalik will be talking to Ian Peel (founder & editor-at-large of Classic Pop magazine) through the creation of their third album ‘In No Sense? Nonsense!’, which is given a 50-track deluxe reissue on 2nd November via Warner Music. They'll also explore the history of the group and their varied collaborations, playing selections on Spiritland's world-class sound system.
Tickets are £30.00 and strictly limited to 60.
Please join us for this extremely rare chance to hear from Anne and J.J. and the music of The Art of Noise in the intimate surroundings of Spiritland.
Heavenly Jukebox is the DJ arm of the legendary Heavenly Recordings, who've been playing the finest records and tearing up the dancefloors of festivals, clubs, gigs and parties for almost 30 years.
Fingers very much on the pulse, they're also the resident DJs and music programmers at The Social in London.
Come and hear the music of several truly mixed bags: the wonderful Jeff Barrett, Danny Mitchell and Carl Gosling.
Educated by everything from Klaus Wunderlich and Jim Reeves, via Motown, hairy rock and disco, to D-Train and Anita Baker from his family’s large record collection, Ian Wade found his tastes favouring electronic music upon first hearing I Feel Love in 1977, which pretty much shaped his mindset from there.
With a comprehensive career as a writer for various (and many deceased) titles across music and TV, Ian occasionally turns his hand to PR, makes music under the name Blood Everywhere and compiles playlists for Wadey’s Disco Kitchen.
Spiritland Presents: Jónsi (Sigur Rós) – ‘Frakkur 2000-2004’ world premiere (sold out)
Join us in King's Cross for the world premiere of a triple album of unreleased solo electronic music from Jónsi of Sigur Rós, in advance of its official release.
For many years the experiments in minimal electronic music represented on the Frakkur collection were thought lost, owing to a corrupted hard-drive. However, CDRs shared among close friends at the time came to light a decade later, saving the projects from oblivion.
Mastered for the first time for this release, the legacy recordings – totalling 24 tracks – will be played in full and at volume through our world-class sound system.
Tickets for this very special phones-off, lights-down deep listening session are sold out.
Jónsi will not be attending the event.
