INFO ON EVENT:
We are pleased to be starting up events again here at Dobara with a Label Showcase at BAR A BAR in London. We’re gonna keep it real simple; 4 artists from the label spinning the best in underground house and techno all night long. Venue has a Funktion One sound system as well so expect some top quality sound 😉
SOUND GYPSY (Dobara/Stranjjur/Nëim/Sleazy Deep/Hotbox)
A DJ/Producer based just out of London, Harsh Puri (aka Sound Gypsy) is currently focusing on developing his own take on house music. Being a DJ for 13 years now and having previously released EP’s and singles on various labels for the past 7 years, this experience has helped him grow as a musician and develop a more mature and eclectic sound. Influences range anywhere from disco, funk, dub, Bollywood to deep cinematic soundscapes and dialogues and everything in between.
Having releases out now on Stranjjur, Neim, Sleazy Deep and his own imprint Dobara, Harsh is on a mission to innovate and push forward thinking house and techno. Some tracks tell a story…while others, it’s all about the groove and melody. 2012 saw 2 of his tracks, namely “Turned My World Around” and “Way I Feel” appear in the top 100 Nu Disco Charts on Beatport while “Look What Ur Doin To Me” is still refusing to leave the Deep End Charts on Stompy!
With a new release coming out on quality slo mo house label Hotbox in early 2013 plus a plethora of new material in the works, 2013 is predicted to be the best year yet for this 29 year old.
SAHPE (Dobara/Preset/Kindred Sounds)
Michael “Sahpe” Sachpekidis was born in Greece but has lived in the UK since 1999. He was taught piano, guitar, and drums from a very young age, and music has been a part of his life since… He’s hosted his own radio show at Hull Uni’s Jam1575, DJed all around the UK – Hull (Fez Club), Manchester (Ampersand, Emporia), Newbury (Avenue), Reading (Mango, Venue), and also in Thessaloniki, Greece, his home town – Isalos (Summer 2003 residency), Q Club Mylos, Skybar, Spiti Two (with Novatek). He consistently delivers club-wise DJ sets with cross-genre floor-fillers and crowd-pleasers, ranging from summery tribal house at the beach bars, to tech-house and minimal techno in the UK and in Greece’s underground scene, to electro and techno when the crowd can take it!
Michael has also been experimenting with music making from an early age (the age of DOS!) and has recently started releasing under aliases Sahpe (tech house), Forgetting Factor (chillout) and mikaelantony (electro, nu disco), on labels like In Fact, Arabica, Avatara, Angry Monkey, and Dobara! For Michael, music comes through innumerable influences of different genres, his classical training, and of course the bug that Novatek passed to him!! …to whom he is grateful.
ASH REYNOLDS (Dobara/Ministry of Sound)
Ash Reynolds is a London based DJ/Producer with over 10 years behind the decks and half that in production. He has played sets all over London and surrounding areas. 2012 saw Ash play the world famous Ministry Of Sound and have the chance to play at Croatia’s Dimensions festival. 2013 has seen Ash release his debut E.P. with Dobara Music. Huge support came in from Waifs & Strays, Digitaria, The Mekanism, MAM and many more.
Support for Ash’s disco/funk edits, which can be found on soundcloud.com, came from Moon Boots and All Good Funk Alliance. Primarily, Ash is a House/electronic DJ but with a love of hip hop and funk music Ash tries to incorporate these styles in his sets and productions
THOMAS AMUNDSEN (Dobara/The Egg)
Originally from Oslo, Thomas Amundsen has had the knack to experiment with music from an early age. He has experience with both acoustic and electronic music and has been a DJ now for a number of years.
Relocated to London now and having a degree in Music and Entertainment Industry Management under his belt, Thomas has been playing at different venues in London such as The White House and The Egg, while also performing at numerous clubs in Oslo including The Villa.
