Your chance to attend the latest instalment of Certain People has just arrived.
Chrome Sparks, Bearcubs and Free Love play live this Tuesday 30th October at Certain People, the series of curated electronic music nights hosted by Berghain and Melt! Booking.
Chrome Sparks, formerly known as Jeremy Malvin and based in Brooklyn, New York, arrives on the German leg of an autumn European tour. The artist first announced himself to a wide audience with 2012’s ‘Marijuana’, which superbly utilised Idris Muhammad’s now infamous sample long before ‘Loud Places’ was a twinkle in Jamie XX’s eye.
Chrome Sparks’ slowed down, intricate electro played through the city’s finest speaker system for the first time is not to be missed.
Now signed to Counter Records / Ninjatune, and with a self-titled debut album to his name as of earlier this year, Chrome Sparks’ slowed down, intricate electro played through the city’s finest speaker system for the first time is not to be missed.
Bearcubs, AKA UK native Jack Ritchie relocated to Berlin from London this summer. Having previously played Monarch back in May this year, this is Bearcubs’ first major Berlin performance since upping sticks.
Expect Bearcubs’ trademark lo-fi house to provide a euphoric highlight.
Ritchie made a name for himself with a series of timely remixes (his reworkings of tracks from Tom Misch, Gavin James and Gorgon City have racked up almost 25 million collective Spotify plays). His debut album, Ultraviolet, was released in March, and was followed up more recently by the darker sounding ‘Haunts’ single. Expect Bearcubs’ trademark lo-fi house to provide a euphoric highlight.
Eccentric Scottish duo Free Love are comprised of Suzanne Rodden and Lewis Cook, previously known as Happy Meals. Their latest regeneration describes itself as a ‘utopian disco and meditation module’, with a reputation for unpredictability. The pair have released a number of singles ahead of the November release of their debut EP Luxury Hits, with ‘Playing as Punks‘, a dreamy, indie-electro number, the pick of the bunch.
