We’ve been meaning to have a dance with you for quite some time now. Though Ossia may have been forged in Manchester, the heads will know that it came into existence in the big smoke – back when we were just a few weird kids with big dreams known as the Restless Leg Syndicate.
A lot has happened since then. Our family has grown and changed, old has beget new as we went through several iterations (pour one out for Jammin’ Beats – if you know, you know) and there have been plenty of peaks, and the odd trough, en route. Despite our many forms and variations however, there has been one constant red thread – great bloody parties.
And we don’t plan on changing that any time soon.
So, for our first London sojourn as Ossia and our spiritual homecoming, we are inviting two of the best DJs on the planet down to play at one of the best new venues in Europe. And those are completely objective statements.
As an integral part of the Hessle Audio collective, and also numbered amongst the hallowed Hemlock Recordings alumni, Joe’s space in UK techno is both well deserved and revered.
Despite not being the most prolific producer, the few choice releases he does have under his belt are timeless
masterpieces that belay an incredibly keen musical mind.
Critical praise has also been heaped on his ability behind the decks – in a recent conversation with T.J Hertz (AKA Objekt) he picked Joe as his favourite DJ out of everyone he had worked with…If that’s not a signifier of excellence then we don’t know what us!
Vancouver-born, Berlin-based LNS has also been making serious waves of late. With several notable releases on the widely respected label 1080p alongside artists such as UMFANG, Jayda G, minimal violence and Khotin, her stripped-back sound aesthetic won her over the likes of the brothers Fett, who invited her down to feature on their Trushmix project – resulting in her putting out one of the best mixes that the series has ever seen. She has since been regularly leaving dancefloors in awe with her intricate, deeply personal musical forays behind the 1s and 2s.
We couldn’t be more excited to bring two such phenomenal talents to one of the best new venues in the country.
Get ready London, it’s been a long time coming.
