Sat 2nd Mar
w/ Claro Intelecto + CK
As we reach the ripe old age of four and after two and half years of parties in the La Cheetah basement we’ve curated a double header lineup reflecting UK legends old and new.
Playing live is a bonfide UK legend, Mark Stewart aka Claro Intelecto. Known best for one of the most timeless pieces of electro ever released, 2003’s (although written in 1997), Peace of Mind (Electrosoul). Far from a one hit wonder, CI found a home on Demdike Stare’s Modern Love label, releasing a consistent stream of dub techno indebted releases under the Warehouse Sessions Volume 1-4 umbrella. Looking left of the dance floor, in recent years Dutch stalwart Delsin has acted as an outpost for Stewart’s work in the long player format, issuing modern classic Reform Club in 2012 as well as 2017’s Exhilarator, channeling the dreamy yet visceral techno which he has made his own.
Joining the lineup are Pace Yourself brothers in arms, Craigie Knowes. Already far past buy on sight status, the boys have become an essential label for contemporary electro, house and techno, championing underappreciated legends from the past such as Carl Finlow as well as showcasing the leaders of the new school like Textasy, The Burrell Connection and more.
Completing the lineup will be our residents, taking the night in whichever direction it calls for.
