On Tuesday 31st December 2013, Sasha presents for the very first time in the UK ‘Last Night on Earth’. Taking place at a setting steeped in musical history, the mighty O₂ Academy Brixton will play host to nearly 5000 people and help generate an incredible atmosphere for all in attendance. This will be Sasha’s first London NYE performance in over ten years, as he headlines one of the greatest lineups of house and techno the Capital has ever seen.
Recognised worldwide as one of the greatest DJs to have ever walked the planet, Sasha’s epic sessions in the booth have earned him a highly revered, pioneering status and a colossal, international fan base. His aim to take his gloriously well-crafted DJ sets, his constant surge for new technology and a creative edge amongst his peers has also been on display this summer via his weekly residency at Ushuaia Ibiza. Add to that a Mixmag front cover, headline performances at Space Ibiza Opening, Fabric London and Womb Tokyo and Sasha remains dance music’s indisputable global icon. On the biggest night of the year he will play an exclusive midnight set and be joined by ten of the world’s leading DJs, with these announced over the coming weeks.
DJ, Grammy nominated producer and Saved Records label owner Nic Fanciulli is one of the UK’s finest exports in electronic music over the last decade. Having featured heavily at several of Ibiza’s favourite nights over the past few months including Carl Cox’s ‘The Revolution’, Pete Tong’s ‘Le Grande Bizarre’, Ushuia’s ‘Ants’ and Pacha’s ‘Insane’, Nic has just completed another outstanding season, in turn making him one of the White Isle’s most in demand acts. With all this is mind, Nic’s inventive trademark chunky grooves paired with the tremendous sound and setting of Brixton Academy, make this his stand-out show of the year.
Hot Since 82 is without doubt one of 2013’s biggest stars. Firmly supported by widespread talent including BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Richie Hawtin, Jamie Jones and Maceo Plex, it’s clear that his outstanding textured and layered sound has inspired the next generation and current producers alike. In addition to 2013 performances at almost every major Ibiza party, countless European shows and upcoming dates at The Warehouse Project, this year has also seen the release several brilliant tracks which have resulted in him being inducted into the Essential Mix Hall of Fame. We are absolutely delighted to welcome Hot Since 82 and his killer grooves for his biggest London show to date.
Experimenting with many genres like disco, garage, deep house and techno, Ejeca’s vocal driven, emotive sound flows in all of his productions. Gaining support from BBC Radio 1 including two Essential New Tunes in the past four months, and from luminaries as diverse as Erol Alkan to Sasha, it’s clear that Ejeca has been tipped as one of the hottest new acts in the game. Superb releases so far include ‘Horizon’, ‘Together’ and ‘Night Rays’, which have led him to several label showcases, countless European shows and a handful of US dates. Ejeca is sure to lay down an almighty set of funked up house, techno, disco and garage when he takes over the controls this NYE.
Lee Brinx is a true stalwart of underground electronic music. His role as an east London based DJ, producer, label owner and promoter has put him at the centre of an underground scene that is starting to yield its influence the world over. Lee’s unfaltering love for underground electronic music has seen him explore many variations of the scene such is his lust for discovering new ideas, concepts and philosophies. His penchant for garage grooves is still a distinct feature of his music today, but is now combined with deep beats and melodic basslines. Displaying a cultured finesse as he subtly builds through varying moods, atmospheres and tempos, Lee promises to add a whole new dimension to the night.
Put simply this is the best way to welcome in 2014.
