On Tuesday September 23rd, 2008 White Heat at Madame Jojo's in Soho, London is to feature a special 1AM show by New York's HeartsRevolution + guest DJ from LA - Franki Chan of Iheartcomix and more.
Live band lineup:
Black Affair is the new band of Steve Mason of Beta Band fame. The end of the Beta Band was a blow for lovers of genuinely progressive British music; its experimentalism, however, is brought into new areas by Black Affair and the results are original and soulful. Steve Mason's renowned love of hip-hop creates something remarkable, with eerie horror-film synths meeting with staccato percussion, all with an enigmatic 80's flavour and an amazing mechanical sheen. It's ambitious, inspired music. "It veers towards the sinister soundscaping of Depeche Mode and the synth-addled tendencies of The Human League" - Drowned in Sound.
Drone hypno electronic rockers The Oscillation take shoegaze, krautrock and plenty of other influences and make something else. The brainchild of multi instrumentalist and producer Demian Castellanos, The Oscillation has risen out of the ashes of the critically acclaimed Orichalc Phase (two 12" only releases for DC Recordings in 2006). Having already worked with such luminaries as producer Tim Holmes from Death In Vegas, as well as a new forthcoming project with a member of Chrome Hoof, Castellanos' position amongst the cream of the UK's music fraternity will seem inevitable to anyone who hears The Oscillation.
HeartsRevolution (1am show)
New York boy and girl electronicas HeartsRevolution have an unusual take on promotion as they enlist a refurbished ice cream truck, known as HeartsChallenger, to serve as a kitsch store, transportation and record label HQ all in one go. Currently very hot in electronic circles partly due to their split single with, and resemblance to, the wildly popular Crystal Castles.
Guest DJ: Franki Chan of Iheartcomix
Plus White Heat Djs Matty and Olly.
