Ewer Street Warehouse, SE1 0NR
We are pleased to announce a very special event at Central London’s favourite warehouse venue, Ewer Street Car Park, SE1. On Friday January 28th 2011, Spectrum celebrates a “Decade of Dropping Beats” with a line up worthy of a brand who’s events across UK and Europe have seen them become the market leader for multi-genre club events.
Headlining on the decks is without a doubt the biggest act in electronic music at this time, Pendulum. Hot off the back of their sell-out UK arena tour, the Antipodean uber-band lead a hot as hell line up that showcases the diversity of current dance music, and is guaranteed to rock the industrial warehouse space to its core.
None of which are currently hotter thanSkrillex from Los Angeles, who plays his first ever European show. His debut albumScary Monsters & Nice Spirits on Big Beat and Deadmau5′s Mau5trap imprint has been a huge record in 2010, and even saw Skrillex occupying an unprecedented 8 out of 10 spots in the Beatport Overall Top 10.
Double Brit Award winner Ms. Dynamite is no stranger to success and is destined for more with her forthcoming single with Katy B, hot in the footsteps of her massive hits with Magnetic Man, Redlight and DJ Zinc. Her live performances are well known for their explosive nature, and will surely be a highlight of the event.
Following down the theme of bass orientated yet diverse music we welcome a quartet of the most upwardly mobile acts around at the moment. Doorly has taken the UK, US and Ibiza by storm with his technically superb and energy packed DJ shows and recently completed his first Radio 1 Essential Mix. One of the biggest act in dubstep, Joker, seemingly can’t stop turning everything he remixes to gold. Also on the half-time tip we are pleased to welcome Modestep who are undoubtedly in the verge of something rather special. The London based four piece act, expected by many to be 2011′s breakthrough act, have created a huge online presence and their live show is highly rated. Tim Healeys recent releases have seen the Brighton producer’s music become standard issue in many of the A-list DJs sets, a massively busy international touring schedule and his latest release LIV IT LOV IT signed to SONY.
16 Bit, Delta Heavy and Union also star, joining Spectrum’s founder Pete Jordan for a spectacle of boundary-less electronic music. Pete started the Spectrum brand to advance his own DJ career in February 2001. Starting in Nottingham, the night would become a regular event at clubs such as the Bomb and Stealth, before setting it’s sights much further afield. Firstly it conquered Birmingham at venues like Custard Factory, Air, Rainbow, Q Club and now appears regularly at the HMV Institute where it regularly attracts crowd upwards of 2000 people. Spectrum also resided at the soon to be re-opened Matter in London, and has hosted an arena at Global Gathering for the last three summers. Over last the decade, Spectrum has held events in 10 different countries throughout Europe and over 20 different UK cities, and continues to attract large audiences at its well-loved shows.
Regarding the forthcoming London show Pete Jordan said, “I’m really pleased to be able to bring Spectrum back to London and to undoubtedly one of the best event spaces in the capital at the moment. Previous shows with the likes of Drumcode, Delphic and Pryda have been amazing, and i know that with the massive line up on January 28th is going to be huge!”
On Spectrum reaching 10 years and still going strong, “it’s certainly flown by, and despite intending it starting as a small party to DJ at, it’s kind of grew into a monster. It’s great to see that the events are more popular than ever and our original concept of cleverly programmed line ups that avoiding genre pigeon holes seems to be even more relevant than ever. 2011 is going to see the brand expand further than ever before, we have a number of huge projects almost ready for announcing. We will also return regularly to London, and will be popping up in the places across the globe yet to experience exactly what Spectrum is all about.”
