Spacemachine w/ Jamie 3:26 (Chicago)
Jamie 3:26 from Chicago is due to make his debut UK appearance this Friday night at the Baby Bathhouse, London N16 for Spacemachine.
Spacemachine is proud to present Jamie 3:26, who hails from the South Side of Chicago, and will be making his first ever UK appearance as part of a EU & Japan tour that will see him play Berlin, Hamburg and Tokyo this autumn.
Jamie’s one of the musical son’s of the Chicago house music scene that is closely associated to the energy and DJ-ing style of the Music Box, as his artist name ‘3:26’ a reference to the Box’s physical address ‘326 North Michigan’ suggests.
Over the years, Jamie has earned himself a good reputation through collaborations with prolific producers like Marshall Jefferson, Chip E. Anthony Nicholson, Glen Underground, Boo Williams and Paul Johnson. His latest releases & Basement Edits series have appeared on the ParteHardy Records label as well as Strobelight Honey , which all sold out in a matter of days.
As far as residencies go, Jamie 3:26 has played Chicago hot-spots such as The Basement, The Concrete Jungle, Red No. 5 and Boom Boom Room, all being well-regarded hot spots in the Windy City. Driven by the desire to allow people to loose themselves on the floor and forget their problems, Jamie keeps his irons in the fire and we are glad to have him over!
Local support comes from Roual Galloway, who has just launched his new Cinch label and has been making waves with his Make Believe Ballroom release. Roual is also well recognized for his quality in depth interviews with the likes of Theo Parish & Lil Louis for the Faith Strobelight Honey Fanzine, which he co-publishes.
Johnny Hiller is behind the Spacemachine Recordings imprint and the London based Lasermagnetic party that have earlier this year seen Chicago DJs like Rahaan and Zernell (Grimy Edits) and other US based Djs like Bobby Viteritti (Trocadero Transfer), Victor Rosado (Paradise Garage) & DJ Nature (Golf Channel Rec.) do justice on the dance floor.
The Baby Bathhouse in Stoke Newington opened in March 2011 and was promptly announced Time Out Bar Of The Week. There’s a nightclub and cocktail area in the basement. We have secured a special bumper 4am license for the occasion!
The Bathhouse venues have already garnered mention in Dazed And Confused, Live Mail On Sunday and Sunday Times Style. With guests such as Paloma Faith, Alexa Chung, Vivian Westwood, Noel Fielding and Prince Harry and performance and DJ sets from the likes of Little Boots, Jodie Harsh, Henry Holland, Sophie Ellis Bexter and Roisin Murphy this is a collection of venues that guarantee you a night unlike any other.
