DR. FRESCH + JACKLNDN
Dr. Fresch and jackLNDN join us for a special double headliner on August 29th!
In 2012, Tony launched the Dr. Fresch brand with remixes on Dim Mak Records, Big Mamas House Records, and Prep School Recordings. After securing a position as a resident DJ for Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records in 2013, he won Insomniac's Discovery Project Contest and was chosen to perform at Nocturnal Wonderland in San Bernardino, CA. Following his performance at Nocturnal Wonderland, Dr. Fresch went on to release his debut EP on Prep School Recordings, and was featured at #9 on Billboard Magazine's "Next Big Sound" Chart in November 2013. Since then, Dr. Fresch has gone on to release a massively successful series of remixes, garnering multiple Top 5 spots in Hype Machine's popular chart, amassing 6,000,000 plays on SoundCloud, and millions more on YouTube.
Dr. Fresch has continued to gain serious momentum over the course of the last year, playing some of the most notable venues in America, including The Avalon, Club Nokia, Exchange LA , Dim Mak Studios, Audio SF, and Spy Bar. In Summer 2014, he performed at EDC Las Vegas and on the main stage at Red Rocks Amphitheatre for Global Dance Festival. The future continues to remain bright for Dr. Fresch, as he prepares for a nationwide touring this spring and the release of his new original EP.
JackLNDN is one part classical technician and two parts main room club surgeon. He's simultaneously a mixture of centuries of European musical heritage and a sneak preview of the future. As a producer and DJ, he has quickly established himself as a character whose work is quickly drawing attention for its freshness and whose potential is seemingly endless. In his twenty years on earth, LNDN has spent more time performing and playing music than most do in a lifetime.
Born in the early 90s, Londoner Jack Aisher spent the majority of youth attending Windsor Castle for the Queen. He rigorously trained in classical music, developing a slew of skills: choral singing, conducting, writing, and performing cello, piano and guitar. The immersive education required performing at "8 events a week, 14 hours of rehearsals a week and 30 minutes of training every day before breakfast. It was like boot camp," he admits, "but so rewarding."
Then, he met dance music. On a holiday to Ibiza with a friend, LNDN, a teen, experienced proper clubbing for the first time. He reveals, "We didn't really know what to expect. I went to a club - saw Fatboy Slim at Space. He was standing in for Carl Cox. Every night I went to every single club. Then I started looking hard at the scene," and began DJing from there.
On his first DJ gig: "I blagged my way into the job - it was a week before NY in Switzerland - I was just talking shit. I learned the basics of DJing in a week. Another guy from a bigger club liked what he heard and asked me to be their resident. It was a ski resort."
When the ski season finished, he returned to London and was intent on experimenting in the studio and as a DJ. He entered the British Student DJ Championships and got invited to the finals in Ibiza. Soon after, he began spinning student nights at Fabric and hosting his own weekly nights. He has a photographic memory when it comes to records. He "knows every record inside and out" and would "never play a record he doesn't know, like some track he just downloaded that day and hasn't even listened to yet." He may be young, but he has the elder sense of purism usually reserved for jocks twice his age.
"Doing shows in my hometown was a huge deal for me" he confesses. "I was in the booth with some of my heroes watching and learning new tricks all the time". LNDN has already shared stages with; Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Sub Focus, Kissy Sellout, Ms Dynamite, Doorly, Chase & Status, Pendulum, Mistajam, Skream, Nero, Example, Jaguar Skills, Crookers, Sinden, Zomboy, Joy Orbison and a fair few more.
On the production side, he started gleaning tips from friend Harry Wolfman and combined that with his knowledge of Logic and other bits of his training. Ever since, he has been slaving away in the studio, developing a variety of his unique strains of dance music. The linchpin of the sound has always been house, but filtered through an ever-evolving set of lenses: progressive, pop, jazz, and beyond.
Young JackLNDN is now poised to move large congregations himself. His remix and original production slate is stacked for 2012, in addition to his weekly DJ slots. This classical-turned-dance prodigy has got the musical chops and attention to detail so often lacking in EDM. To call JackLNDN a bright, young voice might just be the understatement of the year.
Opening set by the MAKE IT FUNKY crew.
