Socialeyes return with one of their biggest, most interesting, boundary pushing and fun line ups yet!
Created in 2006 from the Groovepressure & Groove Pleasure labels the Socialeyes parties have been popping up for one-off nights in and around London until finding their home at Corsica studios in 2010. They have hosted a broad spectrum of quality electronic guests from Funk D Void to Bar9, Terry Francis to Elite Force, Ben Sims to Max Cooper and always pushing open-minded, forward thinking electronic dance music on the best quality sound systems in intimate fun spaces. That is their ethos.
On Saturday 28th May they celebrate their 5th birthday party and one year to the weekend since their first party at Corsica Studios.
Socialeyes is not restricted to one genre, the emphasis is quite simply on ‘good’ music. So on Saturday 28th May you’ll find two rooms, one for house, techno, disco & electro and the other for dubstep, breaks, beats & bass.
Jakwob is one of dubstep’s biggest new stars. First coming to acclaim via some major appreciation in the blog world for his bootleg of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Starry Eyed’ and bolstering such support with his remix of ‘Under The Sheets’ he’s since gone on to remix the likes of Kid Sister, Robyn, I Blame Coco, Empire Of The Sun, Temper Trap, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Audio Bullies and Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip. Hailing from the Midlands, Jakwob is a multi-instrumentalist playing in many bands in his teens starting in jazz moving on to play death metal and folk. This goes a long way to explaining his style which transcends genres combining elements of dub step, electro, ghetto-tech and break-beat (to name a few). This eclecticism also manifests itself in Jakwob’s DJ sets, which take in dub, hip-hop, drum and bass, dub step and beyond. Currently working on a debut album, and very much in demand as a producer of the moment, he’s redefining the experimental, dub step, double-step, and electronic scenes
Sei A shot to fame with his recent release on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, he’s one of the most exciting new producers and songwriters in the techno and house scene producing rich textures, moody atmospheres, subtle psychedelia and haunting vocals, characterized by an instinctual gift for melody and a sincere romantic flair.
High Rankin - One of the scenes more eccentric artists, his music brims with character and personality that engulfs the listener as well as causing the obvious dance floor riot! An all round force in dance music be it as a dj, producer, blogger, label owner, he is the quintessential modern dance music artist!
Justin Robertson’s tastes have always been eclectic, though in 2011 you would be hard pushed to find a musician working successfully in areas as diverse as techno, house, dancehall and art pop. Justin is a true modernist: he excels as a DJ of international repute; is a creator of bespoke techno; one third of New Pop band Thee Earls and a remixer for the likes of The Whip, Bjork and Felix Da Housecat.
Mensah - With his releases on Jake’s H.E.N.C.H. imprint amongst other releases and collaborations on Baobinga’s BUILD and LoDubs, Mensah displays a kind of dancefloor ownership that offers the now pre-requisite bass weight with a decidedly more dance element. Being supported by the likes of BLOC and Fabric Mensah is an ascending force on the scene.
Robin Ball & the Groove Pleasure Soundsystem
2011 sees Robin enter into his third decade as a dj, with a career that has taken him across the globe from London to Sydney. His passion for a wide variety of electronic music has inspired the eclectic line-ups for his Socialeyes parties and his non-stop passion and dedication for the scene. This year he debuted his latest project “Groove Pleasure Sound System” which received a great response at Corsica Studios back in January when his skilled crew of tech-house, disco, jamming wizards performed live to the backing of Robin’s deft DJ skills. As a testament to his eclectic passions, you will also find him in room 2 playing a set of dubstep, breaks, beats and bass under his alias, Robin Beats.
