MOOCH Feat Okain & Kath Harding – 12th March 2011
Mooch with extra bounce!
ell then folks, muchos fun‘n’frolics was had by all down Cargo for our 2nd birthday, Timidboy & Kevin Griffiths both served up a right musical treat keeping the familia on their toes until the lights came on. Thumbs up to all those that braved the door q’s from 9.30, sticking it out to celebrate with us inside. Thank you again for your patience! At Mooch towers we believe in upping the game and March’s line up won’t disappoint. First up we’ve invited Ms Harding down to play. The brains behind our design and the one who provided the sound track at the start of Mooch 2 years ago, she’s a quality underground talent that brought us WiSH, London’s finest Techno/House girl only knees up. Heading up the night an artist whose slick production and superb DJing performances are set to propel him to greatness, we introduce…
Okain [Quartz Rec/Tsuba]
Making his debut on the decks at just 15 within two years he was offered bi-monthly residency playing 5 hour techno sets. Since then he has played in the hottest spots in Paris including Rex Club & Social Club and while also keeping up a regular Dj slot at the legendary Dimuschi parties with friends Paul Ritch & Thomas Muller. Back in 2007 after a year of studying sound engineering he linked up with Paul Ritch to release there first EP on under the Handycraft alias. Released Kickeboxer the Le Bal Masqué EP was an immediate success being charted & played by many of the scenes heavy hitters. Since then Okain has released several EPs on different labels including Quartz Music, Tsuba, Bpitch Control, Arjaus, Underwater & French label Jetaime Records. His productions have been granted support from the likes of Ellen Allien, Loco Dice, Sebo K & Slam. Naturally these acclaimed releases have led him to gigs across Europe including City Hall in Barcelona during the Sonar festival and now back to London for very special set at Mooch guaranteed to blow the roof off!
Kath Harding [WiSH]
Kath’s intricate eye for detail, established from her fine art and graphics foundation, has been the driving force to success for WiSH over the past few years. She has a unique intuitive style and an ability to read and surprise any crowd. Her style is a brave collage of trend-led techno, groovy minimal with undertones of early house. A journey that explores the sometimes dark and sometimes funk-infused side of electronic music, all served up with a generous helping of the well known Kath Harding twist. It is this added element of surprise that has made the downstairs dancefloor at WiSH a clubbing mecca for many. Her eye for detail has not been lost on the WiSH programming where over the past couple of years she has played alongside Chloé, Jennifer Cardini, Fra Soler, Raymundo Rodriguez, Tim Sheridan, Mistress De Funk, Nicole Moudaber amongst others. Kath makes a welcome return for us breaking a Mooch record with her 3rd set for us since it all began just over 2 years ago…
Our very own residents Natalie Coleman, Ed Jones (the artist formally known as Yellowcake!) & Nick Walters will be warming the cockles with some hot tech/house treats, so come on down, take off that winter jacket and slip into something a little more Springy… Now Bounce!!
