Face Celebrates 3rd Birthday
Although we can’t quite believe it Face is three already. Over the past years, the night has established itself as the finest in the north of England, bringing label showcases, city debuts and so much more to Birmingham. So, as soon as great events with Shonky & Sueil as part of the Culprit party on August 11th and Kerri Chandler and Franck Roger are done in the weeks before 13th October, the birthday will play out with Matthias Tanzmann, B2b, Davide Squillace, Joy Orbison and Scuba.
Matthias Tanzmann started his DJ and production career in the mid nineties in Leipzig, playing regularly at the renowned club ‘Distillery’. These early days saw his first release as ‘Gamat 3000’ on Dessous Recordings, which was quickly followed by releases on Freude Am Tanzen, Lo-Fi Stereo and FM Musik. In 2000 he founded Moon Harbour Recordings, and since then scores of Moon Harbour releases have been play listed by renowned DJs all over the world. The label rapidly became synonymous with quality deep-house and tech-house, and has released many of Matthias Tanzmann’s own records as well as those from the likes of Luna City Express, Marlow, Martinez and Dan Drastic.
When you hear the name Davide Squillace you think ‘DJ’ and ‘DC:10’. That’s doing something of a disservice to the Barcelona based Italian, though, because he’s not only a fine spinner at the Ibiza club… but he also runs his own labels (Hideout most avidly in 2011) but so too does he have a long back catalogue of productions starting in 1998 which includes imprints like Supernature, Sci + Tec and Loco Dice’s Desolat.
Scuba meanwhile, is the head of one of the hottest bass labels in the world, Hot Flush, releasing his own great LPs and EPs as well as those from Locked Groove, Guy Andrews, Paul Woolford and more. Based in Berlin, he regularly plays Berghain and in fact has his own Sub: stance night at the club.
Finally, little needs to be said of Joy Orbison. As well as kick starting the garage revival with ‘Hyph Mngo’ a few years ago, he now runs his own label Hinge Finger, and collaborates with Boddike for some of the biggest house/bass/techno tracks around, including ‘Elipses’ and Faint’. His DJ sets take in house, garage, bass and more and are something to behold.
