GARETH WILD (Ear To Ground)
Gareth is the label owner and manager of ‘EarToGround’, co-owner and manager of LDNwht and of East Side Gallery. His story begins in 1992 during the early years of Jungle. By 94 he had developed a very strong addiction to vinyl and London’s underground rave culture. As the years progressed his musical tastes developed to the genre known as Techno. Along the way he has gained over 15 years of underground musical diversity, something very evident in his productions. He strives for an over all, forward thinking sound for ‘EarToGround’ aiming to come up with something new with each release.
In 2011 he brought Lucy’s Stroboscopic Artefacts to the UK for the first time with two packed out parties at Corsica Studios. And in 2013 he finally brought Jonas Kopp and Reko to the UK for the first time.
Having become a highly respected DJ and producer in London and overseas, you will never hear the same set twice from Gareth. As in his productions, diversity is the key. You can regularly find him behind the decks at fabric, Corsica Studios, 1001 and Egg with label compadres Dax J and Chris Stanford at their various label residencies.
We are so excited to have him play for Loose Lips - bring on the 19th!
DJ RINGO STINGRAY (Toe Jam/SWMS)
Co-Founder of Toejam Soundsystem and SWMS, Devon bred Ringo Stingray first found his feet hosting 'Pins & Needles Radio' with Loose Lips resident Rommek. After a string of gigs under his ‘Patrice’ moniker, a recent move to Manchester has seen Ringo gaining residency on the Mancunian House night ‘Brooklyn Dub’. A man of many musical passions, he is also a up-and-coming rapper, making a real name for himself in UK Hip-Hop. Don't worry though, there won't be any vocals over the techno at this party! With a keen ear for a groove, DJ Ringo Stingray will most definitely bring the party to Finsbury Park.
LOOSE LIPS RESIDENTS:
ROMMEK (Loose Lips/Weekend Circuit/ARTS)
After headlining Loose Lips 002, it is a pleasure to now have him as a resident. Playing for the first time in this role, he is the perfect support for Gareth.
Despite only being 21 years old, we have been amazed by his productions for almost 6 years now. Especially in the last few years, his sound has matured hugely, making him into one of the most exciting young techno producers in London.
With recent vinyl releases on No Logo & Weekend Circuit and digital releases with Labrynth, Sonntag Morgen and B55, we can safely say that our sentiment is shared by many. Support from Developer, Francois X and Arnaud le Texier to only name a few, is the greatest compliment to the commitment exuded by Rommek over the last few years. Adriana Lopez's remix on his Thought Patterns EP being played twice on DJ Deep's boiler room a few months ago was a strong signal of this backing.
As a DJ, his sets are both unique and engaging. Recent sets at Motion, Corsica and Crucifix Lane wet the appetite for all his future residential appearances at Loose Lips. To top this off, he has recently secured a residency at Dazed & Confused, another very reputable underground techno night in London.
GOLESWORTHY (Loose Lips/Groove Points/Housework)
Not much needs saying here. We could write a description of his history and amazing sets for every party we throw...but if you've been down to the previous Loose Lips, you'll have seen for yourself what an amazing DJ he truly is! And if you haven't, then you have no excuses not to come to this one. Without a doubt, one of the most cultured and versatile DJs we've ever seen play!
MEDALLION MAN (Loose Lips/Hoxton FM)
Co-founder of Loose Lips. Playing a wide variety of electronic/experimental music, Medallion Man (aka Freddie Sugden) first started DJing on radio. Having hosted shows on various stations throughout the last few years, he regularly provides listeners with two hours of the finest selection of tunes. His current project is with Hoxtonfm Hoxtonfm, having just landed a show based on Loose Lips. Check it out, starting every Wednesday 5-7pm from the 4th Feb for regular Loose Lips guests, interview and general madness. He has held residencies with Seminor Lab and Pulse Productions, plays regular gigs at London's top venues such as Egg and Ministry of Sound, whilst also being a regular presence at South West events. Recent sets at Corsica studios and Stuck In Trafik have especially stood out. Running Loose Lips now provides another avenue for him to express his musical interests.
SEE YOU THERE!
