Apogee presents with Huxley++

Lightbox, Vauxhall

The change of the seasons is bringing something new to London, the Apogee Presents launch night this April and we are starting as we mean to go on. With the infamous Louche hosting room 2, this is a movement that should not to be missed.

First on the bill we have Huxley. Born Michael Dodman, Huxley is a name you’re sure to hear more and more of after firmly cementing his place in the UK house scene this past two years. Raised on a diet of UK & US Garage, House and early rave music – Huxley has carved out a career with releases on Tsuba, Morris Audio, Fear Of Flying and Suara and remixes on labels such as Noir, Cecille and OFF. With forthcoming music on Hypercolour, OFF, Rebirth and his home label Tsuba there is a lot in store from Huxley across the board of the house spectrums.

Next we have Coat of Arms and if you haven’t heard of them, where have you been? A musical duo comprising of Birmingham / Bristol steel & brawn. Chris James & Eats Everything Or Eats Everything & Chris James (whichever way pleases aesthetically) have a mutual love of big bass, melodic chords and slick beats which created a soundclash with more fight than the Battle Of Hastings! “Is This Something” the boys debut record was put at position number 3 in Mixmag’s Top 10 Feature for August 2011. Get Physical’s Heidi has bigged the lads up in her Dj Mag column for September. Jamie Jones has featured “Is This Something” in his Live Essential Mix from Ibiza On Radio 1 this summer as well as his debut Fabric CD mix. It’s easy to see why these guys are starting to become hot property.

Before the runaway success of club hit ‘Criticize’ which exploded everywhere at the beginning of the year from Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show to being featured on Beats in Space Best of 2010 Maxxi Soundsystem (Sam Watts) had been DJing, putting on parties and working hard in his studio for a number of years in his home town of Brighton and Apogee are lucky enough to host him in London this spring. Currently working with Miami man of the moment Danny Daze on new material and London vocalist Royston there’s some really exciting new music about to drop.

2011 saw a meteoric rise to the forefront of the electronic music scene by Cera Alba. Recently he was signed up to Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’s iconic label Hot Creations and its sister label Hot Waves. He has his first vinyl EP ‘Can’t Let You Go’ due for release on exciting new label Illusion Recordings out soon. He also has EPs planned for release on Composite Records and Turquoise Blue as well as remixes on Digital Delight and Electronique. The past 6 months he has played with some of the biggest DJ’s in the world and in 2012 he will be playing for Apogee Presents.

While the rest of the Goottwood festival guys are adding the final acts to the 2012 lineup we have dragged their regal member that is eLdoko to support Apogee. Recently signed to What! What! records eLDOKO fuses the gaps between all things Jazz, Swing, Tech and House. Expect a number of releases throughout 2012 showcasing a new deeper, organic sound whilst still keeping true to the light hearted approach he has always taken.

Hosting room two are our good friends Louche. Like Apogee, Louche was created by music lovers, for music lovers. Louche started out as a small party amongst friends in 2007 and has since matured into one of the most influential parties in the UK.

Louche are kindly showcasing the one and only Adam Shelton. Continuing over the last twelve months to champion music that is true to itself, Adam Shelton has an unshakeable focus on quality underground house. His debut EP ‘Air Trax’, due in February 2011 on Air London, is part of a relentless effort to sketch out his own definition of authenticity. From sultry and atmospheric sounds to the acid-drenched and techy the EP embodies the energy of his current musical course. His work with sparring partner Subb_an brings a raw and retro-funk sound, which is clearly demonstrated on their joint EPs ‘It’s Time’ and ‘The Muzik’. Similarly, their edits under the S.A.S. moniker have increasingly found notoriety as the insider’s weapon of choice. ‘In The Candy Store’ has featured prominently on discerning dancefloors worldwide spun by Seth Troxler, Craig Richards, Heidi, Lee Burridge and Lee Curtiss amongst others. Meanwhile the early 90’s feel of ‘Give it to You’ perfectly demonstrates an insight into the US house-loving side of Adam’s taste.

Apocalypse Survival Guide


Straight off the back of saving the world from the Mayan gods, The 433 are back in another epic battle to save mankind. ìThe Millennium Bug Bites Back is the second in their series of interactive, immersive and experiential late night clubbing events.

The 433 invite guests to get their best 90ís geek on and join Professor Fugly on his mission to save the world from the evil Millennium Bug.
Like Terminator they’ll travel through a timewarp miniaturiser to be transported back into the 90ís and shrunk into the circuitry of a super computer ravaged by the Drag Queen Bug.

Once inside guests venture into Professor Fugly’s Hip Hop laboratory and see how he and his hacker homeboys are preparing to battle the bug. Then after heading to the bar to receive an immunising shot, they head off to see how preparations are going for the Y2K pop party palace. There is also a secret Bug’s lair where the drag queen millennium bug is hiding. Will Professor Fugly be able to track her down and save the world by killing her?

This is a night as much about the experience as anything else, 90’s B-movie decoration, innovative lighting, projection mapping and bespoke costume design all combined into a package that will make this the best party of the last millennia.


The Bugs Lair:
Larry Sun [The 433] Ferme La Bouche [Whereís Nana?]

Fugly’s Hip Hop Lab:
Kojak [vibes & vice] FIFE [Yeah, Maybe] Colonel [yeah, maybe]

Y2K Pop Party Palace:
Bright Light Bright Light & David Oh [another night] Le Guiton [the 433] Thomas Jardiner [the 433]
