The House of Peroni has returned to London this summer with a six-week long residency at Proud East in Haggerston. Entitled ‘Amare l’Italia’ – ‘For the love of Italy’ – The House of Peroni will open its doors free of charge every Wednesday – Sunday until 1st July (opened Friday 20th).
The Residency is designed to take guests on an immersive journey to discover how some of Italy’s most successful and creative ambassadors are inspired by their love of their home country – featuring food by Master of Taste Francesco Mazzei, spaces and an immersive experience designed by Master of Style Margherita Missoni, and drinks concocted by Master of Mixology Simone Caporale.
To ensure that, along with the sights, smells, and tastes, the sounds of Italy are represented, every Friday and Saturday The House of Peroni will play host to some iconic Italian DJing figures, and those inspired by the country’s famous Italo, cosmic and Balearic sounds. Horse Meat Disco‘s veteran selector Severino, former Cosmic club don Daniele Baldelli, acid-disco journeyman Felix Dickinson and founder of cult label Claremont 56, Paul “Mudd” Murphy all bring their signature sounds to the residency.
Elsewhere, multi-instrumentalist/producer/DJ Jonny Nash, Frank Tope of Wild Geese, DFA–affiliated Ray Mang, one–quarter of Brighton’s oddball DJ outfit Soft Rocks, Piers Harrison, and NTS residents Bahamian Moor represent a spread of sunshine sounds to accompany the House of Peroni’s other offerings. Herne Hill’s cult party curator Leisureware, Melbourne’s rising house star Francis Inferno Orchestra, and deep-digging selectors Joe Lye, Amateurism and Crucial & Fresh complete the six-week programme. Visit the website for full listings.
The House of Peroni has also worked with Venice’s ambient icon Gigi Masin to curate a playlist of his cult favourites for the six-week takeover. A musician, composer and producer since the 70s, Masin’s work has been sampled by Björk, and more recently featured in the form of a retrospective entitled Talk To The Sea on Dutch Label Music From Memory. He is also one-third of Gaussian Curve, along with Jonny Nash and Amsterdam’s Young Marco, who, collectively, released Clouds to critical acclaim in 2014. Entry into The House of Peroni is FREE, with tickets to food and drink experiences available to purchase here.
