We’re super excited to announce that we will be holding a launch party to celebrate the release of our House for The Homeless Charity Compilation. The Waveform Transmitter’s Ste Knight is on hand with the details.
You are undoubtedly aware, by now, that The Waveform Transmitter has been working hard to put together a compilation album in aid of the UK’s national homeless charity, Crisis. House for The Homeless features 13 top international artists, all of whom have kindly donated their work to this well-deserving cause.
Included on the album are tracks from (in no particular order) Mr.C, Lonya, Danny Howells, Odette, Daniel Steinberg, Yousef, Kristin Velvet, Matuss, Electric Rescue, Demi, Jammhot, Matt Sawyer, and Vanni & Fav. There is some top quality electronic music on here, ranging from house to techno, via a touch of acid and some progressive ear gear.
To celebrate the launch of our album, and give our readers the chance to listen to some frankly astounding music while at the same time helping Crisis, we have partnered up with the wonderful Zest Event Management to put on a little bit of a shindig on 15th July, at District, on Jordan Street in the Baltic Triangle.
There will be two elements of the event, with DJ’s performing outside in the YARD from 18:00 – 21:00, and from 20:00 – 04:00 in da’ District cluuuub.
So, who is playing? Well, we should perhaps start with Daniel Steinberg. Daniel (aka Harry Axt) is an influential figure on the house and techno scene. Coming to us all the way from Berlin, Daniel heads up Arms and Legs Records, which has seen him release his own solo productions, as well as those of other well-respected peers, such as Jan Driver, Oliver Dollar, and the uber talented Kristin Velvet (who will be dropping by tomorrow for a quick chat and with her contribution to our Waveform Mix Series). This will be Daniel Steinberg‘s Liverpool debut…!
Speaking of Kristin Velvet, we’ve invited her along too. You’ll be treated to a diverse set from the Arms and Legs young gun, and who knows what she’ll throw into her set (we’ve been hammering her Sysiphos mix non-stop, it is a blinder). Kristin‘s skills behind the wheels transfer rather nicely to her skills in the studio. She’s been smashing out EPs on Arms and Legs, none of which have failed to impress here at Waveform HQ. Needless to say, we can’t wait to catch her, especially as this is also her Liverpool debut!
Waveform Transmitter fave, Odette is also going to be hopping across the North Sea, fresher than a pannenkoeken, from Schipol Airport straight to the streets of Liverpool. Odette has been running all around Holland over the past couple of months playing festivals and gigs, while also keeping up her productivity in the studio. This will be the first time Liverpool has seen Odette, and she has personally promised to give you some Odette lovin’.
We’ve asked our lovely friends at 303 if they’d like to join us for the fun, and Kenny and Gemma Muir will be dropping a B2B set for your delectation. If Gemma‘s Sunday night performance at Surgeon is anything to go by, combined with Kenny‘s recent set over at Melodic Distraction, we’re in for a treat.
Rosencrantz (who some of you will also know as our writer, Jack Threlfall) is resident at one of Liverpool’s best new club nights, Melōs. He recently provided us with a Waveform Mix as well, so if you need any sort of idea what his sound is like, then head over there. He’s a talented chap, get on it.
Rhyce Tyrell will be warming things up with an hour of house music from the off. Our Waveform resident DJ, who hails from sunny Chester, will be menacing the decks early doors so get down to District sharpish to catch some new talent.
All of the details are on the flyer below. Tickets are only a tenner (more on the door) and you will have the opportunity to buy a physical copy of the album on the night, which won’t be available anywhere else. YOU CAN BUY TICKETS FROM SKIDDLE, HERE. All profits from this event will be added to any revenue generated from sales of the compilation, so buy a ticket and help this fantastic cause. Oh yeah…see you down the front!
