For our second November party, we have a line-up we have worked very hard to present to you. Co-curated with two of the UK's biggest electronic music institutions, we are extremely proud to give you, Ohm Sweet Ohm presents... FeelMyBicep Vs Aus Records.
First up, we have Belfast born two-piece, Bicep, flexing their musical muscles. Bicep have amassed a ridiculously versatile portfolio of tunes, influenced by many of the best moments in the history of house music. They take a creative, genre-bending approach to production, and embrace elements of house, techno, disco, italo, breakbeat (and everything in between) to create their signature sound: intergalactic 80s-warehouse-inspired, yet undeniably forward thinking analog house music.
The boys know their favourite genres inside out, and run their successful blog ‘feelmybicep.com’ which is a treasure trove of off-the-beaten-track Chicago house, disco, funk and Detroit techno. Therefore, on attending a Bicep set, you will be treated to some unexpected gems that are likely to become your new favourites. For the past two summers, the duo have occupied a residency at the iconic Space club in Ibiza, whilst simultaneously running their ‘Feel My Bicep Presents’ nights and playing their ‘All Night Long’ 5 hour sets at various other nights… they can command a dance floor and deliver a party that you won't forget in a hurry.
Joining Bicep, we have Brighton native Leon Vynehall. Vynehall has been commended for his attention to detail and craftsmanship when it comes to producing house music, creating atmospheric and emotive tracks that take cues from disco, funk and soul. Despite making his debut release just two years ago, he has secured releases on many high quality labels such as Will Saul's ‘Aus Music’ and Martyn's ‘3024’. This year, Vynehall has also received praise for the more club-ready house and techno bangers he has worked on under the Laszlo Dancehall alias, comprised of himself and Christian Piers.
Vynehall specialises in seamlessly mixed house and techno sets with his own signature stamp - an emphasis on tracks filled with atmosphere and emotion to balance out the more club focused tracks. His spot as a resident DJ for Brighton night Aka Aka Roar helped hone his mastery of the dance floor, and now Vynehall regularly plays acclaimed sets across the highest calibre of clubs from Berghain in Berlin to Razzmataz in Barcelona. By the time Vynehall appears at Ohm his mixing talents will also have ferried him across the pond, as he is about to embark on his first tour of the US and Canada.
Rounding off our special guests for the night, we welcome back one of our favourite producers, DJs and record label owners - Will Saul. For those that were present when Saul brought his Aus Records party to Ohm in March along with Dusky, you'll remember what great taste the man has for music made for the dance floor but is enriching for the soul (could have made a pun there but had to restrain myself). Saul is a renowned DJ and producer with over a decade of releases under his belt and also captains explorative label Aus Music. Aus is a label with a strong catalogue of releases spanning many genres, providing a home for tracks from Sideshow, Joy Orbison, Ramadanman, Deetron, Martyn and many more. Prior to Aus, Saul ran Simple Records, named after a simple requirement to put out good music- no matter the genre, early evidence of his music-mindedness and strong creative vision.
His impeccably made, versatile productions are definitely at the deeper end of the dance floor spectrum, containing delectable, complex melodies which draw upon elements of dubstep, disco, house and techno. When it comes to mixing, Saul is heralded for being able to effortlessly and entertainingly fuse dance-inducing tracks of all tempos. He was a resident at London’s legendary End club alongside a string of now world famous DJs, helping to shape these skills. He shows his enduring support and belief in his own artists by playing many Aus material in sets, which is complemented by his own tracks and exclusive tracks from a close network of talented producer friends. Recently, Saul was asked to mix the latest instalment of !K7's prestigious DJ KICKS series, a testament to his djing talent.
Last but not least, we have our resident and Ohm Sweet Ohm creator, Pedram. He has built up an extensive knowledge of electronic music over the years, so he is well equipped to set up the Ohm crowd up with one of his trademark warm up sets incorporating underground house, leftfield electronica and everything in between. Pedram is also a talented producer, having attracted the attention of James Zabiela for some time, who released Pedram’s debut EP on his label Born Electric earlier this year which received huge praise from the likes of Midland, Dusky, Tensnake and Martyn. In between throwing parties and touring the UK, usually with the Born Electric gang, Pedram is working on more material to follow the extremely well-received Nina/Immaturity EP.
