A true house music legend, Kerri Chandler is still one of the most innovative producers within the scene, twenty years since his first release. He plays a rare London date, with support from Linkwood, Ben UFO and Krystal Klear.
Kerri grew up on a diet of soul, disco and the emerging sounds of house music in New York during the late 80s. His production work is synonymous with the deep house sound, with â€˜Bar A Thymâ€™ and the â€˜Atmosphereâ€™ EP providing a blueprint for all that has followed. His work has recently found resonance with a new generation of producers and DJs.
The elusive producer Linkwood is currently working on the follow up to his well received debut â€˜Systemâ€™ released on Prime Numbers. Linkwood first came to our attention when Firecracker released â€˜Miles Awayâ€™ a collaboration between Linkwood and House Of Traps and works closely with Manchester based producer and Prime Numbers boss Trusâ€™Me.
Ben UFO (along with Ramadanman and Pangea) runs the pioneering Hessle Audio label, putting out early work by the likes of James Blake, Untold and Cosmin TRG, as well as Ramadanmanâ€™s own various projects. He recently shared the bill at Warm London with Joy Orbison and surely ranks as one of the UKs most inventive DJs, blending classic house, garage, funky, techno, grime and all the mutant strains in between.
Completing the bill is rising star Krystal Klear. A regular face at the All City record store in Dublin, Krystal Klear spent some time in Los Angeles before returning to the UK and setting up a studio in Manchester. He produces timeless funk and boogie records and to date has released work via the Hoya Hoya label, Cooly Gâ€™s Dub Organizer label and, of course, All City Records (the â€˜Tried For Your Loveâ€™ release features a huge remix by Hudson Mohawke).
