After the successful launch of new London club The Qube Project, On the 5th Day is a new weekly residency to be held there every Friday, launching on the 7th of November 2014.
Designed to inspire, educate and make Mondays more bearable.
On the 5th day is a brave, unique and exciting new series of events, with a twist. In addition to its weekly club night residency they will be holding music seminars covering all aspects of the underground music scene taking place on selective Fridays at the club, prior to the events to educate, encourage and inspire.
The night’s themselves will be focussing on a darker, more underground, more sophisticated sound in reach of melodic techno and underground deep / tech house. Being very selective with the artists to ensure consistency of both vibe and sound. Striving for quality to appease the most picky of ears and with enhanced visuals, projections and 3d mapping, the journey is one of difference. You can be safe in the knowledge that if you enjoy one, you will enjoy them all.
Its European line up of artists such as Diynamic’s Karmon, Sincopat act AFFKT, Rampa from Keinemusik and Poker Flat’s Kyodai, Gabriel Ananda of Basmati, Los Suruba of Get Physical, Matthias Meyer of Watergate, Ramon Tapia of Bedrock Records, NTFO and many more will all lead the way in delivering an experience of distinction.
On the 5th Day’s mission is a simple one: to educate and inspire the right people through music. Choosing the business model of better keeping the loyal followers happy then finding new ones each time. Striving to build a bond with them, to share the experiences, in order that they inspire and teach each other. For this reason, in addition to providing a weekly clubbing experience like no other, they are organising music seminars every few weeks to be held in the venue prior to the event.
This is a completely new concept to the UK. These presentations are aimed at aspiring DJ’s and Producers and will feature content delivered by the headlining artists themselves. With additional input from industry professionals such as management artists, booking agents and record labels. Along with participation from Pioneer and Ableton.
This event will provide its followers with the consistency in quality of sound, vibe and the clubbing experience that they crave whilst the seminars will provide a unique opportunity for aspiring DJ’s and music producers to learn more about the artists, to understand what it actually takes to make music and to carve out a career in the industry. Igniting your creativity and providing you with networking opportunities like no other whilst delivering to the ultimate in a European underground experience.
