Boasting a mouth watering lineup, its no wonder that the launch of Saved at matter on Saturday 28th February is shaping up to be one of the finest underground events to hit London in early 2009. With the closing of The End also bringing Atomic to a close, Nic Fanciulli is back in the capital with Saved, an all-new residency that encapsulates his Saved Records imprint and showcases the best electronic sounds of today and tomorrow.
Joining Nic in the main room for the launch is two living legends of the house and techno scenes. Over the years Curtis A Jones aka Green Velvet has entertained us hugely with his intoxicating and unforgettable DJ sets. His debut at matter however sees the green one take to the stage for an extremely rare live show, his first in England in over three years since headlining Fabric’s 6th Birthday in October 2005. And if that wasn’t special enough Saved is also delighted to present another matter debut in the form of François Kevorkian. From the Paradise Garage to Body & Soul via Deep Space and Studio 54, François has seen it all and done it all in a career spanning over thirty years. Recognised worldwide as one of the forefathers of house music it’s a huge honour for us at Saved Records to welcome one of the all time greats to come and entertain you all. Completing the main room lineup is the outstanding Joel Mull in what is a rare opportunity in the UK to see this brilliant DJ and producer in action.
Joining us in room 2 are our friends Nocturnal Groove and their superstar residents The Shapeshifters. Prepare yourself for yet more quality house as Nocturnal host their first event in London since the closure of their spiritual home the AKA. Joining The Shapeshifters and completing this huge lineup is Simon Hawes.
