Chromoza Recordings are delighted to announce the details of the 1st Birthday Party, on Friday 16th May. Coinciding with the release of the sundrenched Forget About Morality EP by Thorsten Last, including remixes from D.R.W (Dan Williams), Midnight Arcade and Elektromekanik. Iconic underground music venue Zigfrid von Underbelly on Hoxton Square will play host to the celebrations with DJʼs starting at 20:30 continuing until 03:00. Spinning on the night will be members of the ever growing Chromoza Familia from all over Europe.
The conﬁrmed special guest DJ is vinyl aﬁcionado, Ibiza resident and all round industry legend/good guy Dave Lubin. The brains behind the multi-faceted Mental Genius brand, Dave is currently enjoying some well deserved success with the roadblock launch party of Mental Genius at Shoreditch club Concrete plus a guest appearance alongside Hot Creations at Egg London. His debut single ʻThis is Mental Geniusʼ includes a remix from Jason Bye and is set for release on 31st March. Championed by many including Richie Hawtin, Paul Oakenfold, and Him Self Her. After taking centre stage at the Chromoza Birthday, Dave will be jetting straight back to Ibiza for the Mental Genius opening party at Sankeyʼs on 30th May.
Also conﬁrmed is rising star of deep disco, James Dax from Bucharest for his debut London gig. James is carving out a sterling reputation for himself over the last 2 years with a series of quality productions. Best known for his Beatport Top 10 EP Hot Coffee on Sleazy Deep and the FunknDeep anthem ʼPsycho Ex Girlfriendʼ, James was the obvious choice for Chromoza to rework Behind the Sky by Thorsten Last, with the remix becoming one of the labelʼs top selling tracks in the last 4 months. In addition Balearic Records boss Corey Romero will be taking over the DJ box for an hour of blissful, Meditearranean sunset beats. Coreyʼs Deep Dub remix of Like It by Artwoork went viral after it was featured on Ibiza Global Radio by Alex Kentucky, gaining worldwide blog support and radio play.
Joining them is Italian party starter and Chillimint Music artist Luca Elle. A close friend and remix king of Team Chromoza; Luca curated the infamous Sunday party Clandestino at AKA with Berlin resident Miss Jools for 5 sold out years until the clubʼs closure in 2010, makes him a natural selection to help the birthday go with a bang. The bad boys of Bari, DR-OYD (Jacky Biancoﬁore) of duo Artwoork and Makinʼ Out (Tommaso Greco) also look forward to playing their ﬁrst London gig after ﬂying in from Italy. The ʻPublic Research EPʼ released on Chromoza in October last year received critical acclaim from industry media. Their jackinʼ Detroit inspired style is perfect to fuel the danceﬂoor until close.
Chromoza founder Justin Ballard will be kicking off proceedings with his signature bass driven disco at 20:30, and label manager/resident vocalist Zoe Belucci will be performing the London premiere of Justinʼs track ʻCall it Onʼ, due for release on Chromoza later this year. Expect a multi-dimensional groove fest with stunning visuals, a cosmopolitan, sensation seeking crowd and without doubt, electrically charged sets of the very best in future disco, deep and jackin house from this prime collection of Chromoza artists. Entry is free.
