Description

Vor~Sprung launch party

LineUp: A Man Called Adam (new release party), Orka, Ben Osborne & Maella, Sorrdes, BOrka, DJs Ben Osborne, George T & more

Live club night Vor~Sprung is fizzing into its debut night with a party for the first new A Man Called Adam release in a decade and a clutch of new high calibre electronic acts.

There are few bands that have been as involved in the development of UK dance music as A Man Called Adam. Their career has pioneered Acid Jazz, spearhead Balearic House and Chill Out and become the standard barer of UK House and nu disco. Formed in the mid 1980s by Steve Jones and Sally Rodgers, they became Gilles Peterson's in-house band and released one of the first singles on the Acid Jazz label. Ironically the b-side was a house track and their first big hit, Barefoot In the Head, kick started the Balearic House genre. After the third band member, Paul Daley, left to form Leftfield, AMCA moved genres and became the figure heads of Chill Out - and the most constant feature of the legendary Café Del Mar compilations. In the late ’90’s they reappeared at the centre of London’s UK House/ nu disco scene and went on to define the characteristic sound of UK clubs going into the millennium. After a long break developing new art and academic projects, they re-appeared DJing unannounced together with Ben Osborne at Camden Underground.

Hailing from the Faroe Isle, Orka started life by making their electronic instruments out of old farmyard machinery (which, on a mid North Atlantic Island, was more obtainable than an off-the-shelf synth). Now relocated to London and whittled down to a boy girl duo that crackles between sensuality and brutalism, they’ve become one of London’s hottest new electronic acts. “Easily one of the most exciting acts to appear in a long time.” (Clash Music). “Possesses a menacing intensity.” (Quietus)

Ben 0 and Maella is a new collaboration between Londoner Ben Osborne and Prague singer Maella. As yet unreleased or (amazingly in this day) available anywhere online, one of their tracks caused a flurry of unanswered google searches when it recently cropped up on Amy Lamé's BBC 6 Music show.

Sorrdes is another new electronic act, this time plucked from the barren wilds of the East Coast. His music combines ambient pulses and pads with often deceptively caustic rhythm patterns. Rural England’s answer to early Detroit techno, if you will.

BOrka, like it sounds, is a Vor~Srpung collaboration between Ben 0 and Orka that first appeared at the Jazz Cafe supporting UK electronic pioneers Radiophonic Workshop.

The night will see the reunion of DJ tag team Ben Osborne and George T (Demure) . Producer, singer and DJ, George T has been described by Dummy magazine as Greco Roman's secret weapon - GR being Joe Goddard from Hot Chip's hyper cool record label. He was also resident DJ at Edinburgh's legendary Tribal Funktion techno night. Ben Osborne is described as a 'polymath' by Time Out and is a DJ, writer, creative producer and founder of Noise of Art, the pioneering collective which marries electronic music with art. “When it comes to mega multimedia events, Ben Osborne and his collective, Noise of Art, are all over it.” (Time Out London)

Vor~Sprung is German for ‘jump against’ or ‘leap forward’.
