Lost Dawn returns to the sunny roof terraces of Brixton’s Prince of Wales with another signature all-day mini-festival kicking off from 2pm until 4am with art, electronic music, one insanely massive headline act and plenty of Pimms….
The Natural Selection
Plus many more to be announced
Headlining our event for an exclusive, London only, three hour performance is the mighty NICK WARREN. You can tell when Nick Warren's on the decks. The music emanating from the DJ booth is that perfect club mix of driving percussion and soaring musicality, bursting out of the speakers, soaking everyone in melody, drenching them in sound. Warren's impressive career has seen him release the very first “Back to Mine”, a staggering eight albums for “Global Underground”, and one for “Renaissance”. He is also in control of A&R for record label Hope Recordings, as well as being a member of the highly acclaimed duo Way Out West. Starting as tour DJ with Massive Attack, moving onto a residency at super club Cream and playing at every self-respecting club on the planet, has led him to this natural position as one of the world's most respected DJs.
2013 saw two releases on Hope Recordings, a remix of global pop sensation Lana Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness' and the breathtaking original track 'Devil's Elbow’ while a landmark 20th anniversary edition of the Renaissance masters series album landed, which Nick was honourably asked to compile. Warren's diverse abilities assume a classic timeless sound, whilst still injecting a glossy and modern slant into his powerful productions.
Nick’s debut performance at Lost Dawn is in anticipation for a summer release of Nick’s new concept album. The album promises to demonstrate why Warren is still at the top of his game and showcases why he is still standing as a giant within electronic music...
Following a fantastic 2013 (with track support from the likes of Roger Sanchez, Fatboy Slim and Prok & Fitch, Radio One airplay and a Beatport #1, plus shows in New York, the Cayman Islands, Houston, Bahrain, Space Ibiza, Ministry of Sound London and a weekly radio show on Select UK), vocalist/songwriter/producer/DJ Lizzie Curious is set for big things in 2014!
With past & future releases on labels including Juicy Music, Black Hole, WhoreHouse, Big Fish, Ulybug, Got Skilz, Kidology and Curiousity Club, it's no surprise that this in-demand artist has worked with stars such as Robbie Rivera and been remixed by Cosmic Gate, StoneBridge, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Alex Gaudino, Thomas Gold, George Acosta, the Dolly Rockers, Lazy Rich and the Hoxton Whores, to name but a few. Thanks to her unique combination of singing, songwriting, DJing AND producing talent, and with six releases already confirmed for this year, the future is looking very bright and very busy for the ever-smiling house music maestro!
Is there nothing Mark Doggett turns his hand to he can't do? With the legendary K-90 under his belt, Dataless Recordings, Sparky Dog and more, this time think 80’s synth pop, classic movies, Commodore 64’s, Pac Man, Studio 54 and discotheques, blended with cutting technology and sounds of the future, and what you’re presented with is Drayton - live and direct in our band room.
