Apt: I – The 1st Birthday with Chris Carrier, Hanfry Martinez, Javier Carballo and Mikhu

It’s been an incredible first year for the Apt: collective, we’ve seen the brand grow from roots at Basing House to the rooftops of Dalston, open Warehouses in #Hackney to intimate Live Stream showcases in Islington.

The collective move into their 2nd year on Friday 30th March in their new home; Mick’s Garage, Hackney Wick. With it’s raw stripped back warehouse appeal, Apt: will be showcasing their signature sound to new faces and old. After our widely renowned Apt: 010 we’ve picked out another Parisian House legend that is Chris Carrier following Jef K’s amazing performance back in November.

Chris has a wealth of experience working collaborating on heavyweight labels such as Get Physical, Crack & Speed, Brique Rouge, Robsoul, Catwash, Night Shit, Detour and Freak n’ Chic. Since, he has produced an array of cutting edge House & Techno with a concoction of sub-genres in-between.

Support comes from Hanfry Martinez who joined the Lola ED agency in 2014, the French crew had had their eyes on DJ/producer Hanfry Martinez for some time. Hailing from sunny Tenerife, he started off his career in the underground electronic world as a resident DJ and promoter, before catching the ears of influential clubs around Europe and being invited to take charge of the decks at the likes of fabric London, Goa Madrid and Chalet Berlin.

Domenico Longo alias Mikhu, a DJ / Producer from Basel first caught the Apt: team’s ear mid-2017 following the release of his label: Spielplatzhelden. The joy of experimenting can be heard in his sets, which are mixed with rhythmic house and minimalistic Dub Techno and yet he runs his clear line.

In the studio, the native Italian has no limits, producing melodic tracks with heavy synths complimenting that signature Apt: sound, the whole team are excited to have him on board!
