Preview: Lindstrøm @ Joshua Brooks for Lost in Music’s 1st Birthday
Manchester disco outfit Lost in Music returns for their 1st birthday by bringing the Norwegian nu-disco godfather Lindstrøm to Joshua Brooks on 22nd September, alongside Edinburgh’s Natasha Kitty Kat and Manchester native Chris Massey.
In their first year, Lost in Music has specialised in bringing the best disco artists to the city including debuts from Dr Packer, Fingerman and Get Down Edits, alongside shows from Aeroplane and John Morales. This focus on bringing debuts to the city and promoting artists that have not played in years, is what has set them apart from the rest.
By bringing Lindstrøm back to the city for the first time since Parklife in 2013, Lost in Music is cementing its place as one of the best promoters around. Like one of his endlessly building tracks, Hans-Peter Lindstrøm is only moving further upwards. The Norwegian space-disco wizard has just released a new EP, ‘Windings’, containing three tracks of that now-classic sound closely associated with Lindstrøm’s name: skyward synths, effervescent rhythms, and melodies that spiral beautifully into the great unknown. This is Lindstrøm in the zone and is representative of what you can expect at Joshua Brooks.
Alongside Lindstrøm, music will be provided by Edinburgh’s disco specialist Natasha Kitty Kat and Sprechen’s Chris Massey. With recent releases on Tribe, Ghetto Disco, Masterworks Music, Hot Digits and Midnight Riot, Natasha has also solidly entrenched herself in the top tier of modern disco producers. Chris Massey has built up a strong reputation by heading up the Sprechen label and working with DJ Paulette on a duet EP release on Yam Who’s? Black Riot label.
Alongside the event, Lost in Music are holding a pre-party at Hatch in association with Chris Massey’s Sprechen from midday; an exclusive screening and Q&A of ‘Northern Disco Lights: The Rise & Rise of Norwegian Dance Music’; and a recovery session at Disco Brunch at Gorilla the following morning.
