Just the other day we were rambling about how American legend Theo Parrish was our gig of the year 2012. Now here comes some welcome news regarding another North American DJ hero, this time deep house supremo Ron Trent, who originates from Chicago.

The Prescription Records co-founder will be gracing the decks at Shoreditch Studios, pulling together all his knowledge and skills to create a set that will surely be unforgettable and eye opening.

Chicago is arguably the home of house music, so any chance to see one of the legends of Chicago house would be foolish to miss out on. Tickets are a snip too at a reasonable £20.

Please bare in mind, these types of gigs are not where you turn up and get hammered on the dance floor and pull some trash – this is about appreciation of the music and a legend behind the decks.

Saturday February 9
Shoreditch Studios
29 New Inn Yard

Deep house legend Ron Trent comes to London in February as Need2Soul presents an all-night set from the Chicago favourite, playing his first UK show since April 2012 – a seven-hour set to remember. Need2Soul take over Shoreditch Studios – a fresh venue in the heart of Shoreditch, with modern decor and bare brick walls, it’s the perfect setting for this rare Ron Trent treat.

A perennial presence in music since the early 1990s, Chicago’s Ron Trent pulls no punches! The co-founder – alongside Chez Damier – of Prescription Records is widely considered to be one of the most influential names in the Chicago house scene, and the label is known for issuing superbly produced, often epic dance music by drawing influences from all over the world and delighting clubbers, as well as DJs with its highly unique sound. His sets tick all the deep house boxes, with elements of soul, funk and world music threaded seamlessly throughout. Ron Trent’s musical quest for knowledge and tones ensure he is always evolving as a producer and a DJ.

London promoter Alex Ruello’s Need2Soul party has been doing its own thing since 2004. Dedicated purveyors of raw house, disco, techno, jazz, soul and more, Need2Soul has an uncompromising and underground, music-first approach that was at first inspired by legendary New York Sunday party Body & SOUL, and has since produced unforgettable deep house parties.

Need2Soul is about great parties, stunning venues and grooving dancefloors – get involved on Saturday February 9, as Ron Trent holds his own. Coming to Shoreditch Studios, this spotlight event puts Need2Soul firmly on the 2013 To Do list for quality underground house-hungry clubbers who like to go all night long!

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals.

Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
