THE REFLEX at The Hare & Hounds Friday 24th April
Plus support from SAM REDMORE & RICK SHAW SOUL FOOD SOUNDSYSTEM
Nile Rodgers is a fan. Kid Creole is a fan. Disclosure, Jazzy Jeff, and Joris Voorn are all fans. From house music royalty Joey Negro, Dimitri from Paris and Mousse T, to the original DJ – remix pioneers John Morales, Greg Wilson, Danny Krivit, and Nicky Siano, all the way to Aeroplane, DJ Marky, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Horse Meat Disco, J.Rocc, Nic Fanciulli, Jazzie B, Cut Killer, Rainer Truby, Acid Arab, Nightmares on Wax… All are fans of The Reflex.
Fascinated by the remix from an early age, London-based French native Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex, takes his cue from the first wave of disco remixers by using only the original sounds from the master tapes (or stems) to breathe new life into soul, pop and disco classics. Imaginative arrangements, boxfresh sonics and intricate editing make The Reflex Revisions rocket fuel for every DJ set.
Heavily championed by BBC 6 Music’s Craig Charles, The Reflex Revisions have amassed over 50 weeks of radio play in just two years on this number one rated show. They have also found their way onto the playlists of tastemakers like Rob Da Bank and Gilles Peterson, who last year sent the Michael Jackson ‘Rock With You’ Revision spinning around the globe.
Having clearly established himself as one of the best in the remix field, with two official compilations of revisions released, gigs lined up all over the planet and an officially remix discography boasting reworks for the likes of Nile Rodgers, Joey Negro and Hackney Colliery Band, now is the time to catch one of the hottest DJs on the planet in the intimate environment of the Hare & Hounds.
Here’s some of Sam Redmore’s mixing for extra measure:
Hare & Hounds, 9pm – 2am 106 High St, Kings Heath, B14 7JZ
