If you've been around this music for a long time you've either experienced the legendary sets of the Hardkiss brothers or you heard about it from someone who had.. WELL, We finally have the HARDKISS brothers at Housepitality and to make it VERY special for you heads we came up with an unprecedented idea.. 6 hours Gavin & Robbie slaying it to Housepitality crowd, from beginning the end.. We've only done this thrice before with the calibers of Dan Bell, Claude Young, Back2back (Jeno and Garth) and now the legendary GAVIN & ROBBIE HARDKISS. Our experience with featuring artists of this caliber is absolute bliss where you reach a point where "it all makes sense" moments come together. We've had people request their presence and so all in due time we kick off Halloween week with this 6 hour performance..BOB FIVE returns to the LOUNGE to slay things the way he only knows what to do.. Once I doubted him when he decided to finish a set with Singing in the Rain and he somehow the crowd went crazy.. wtf?! Only bob can do that..
It is TIME TO GET DOWN.. WE GOT YOU!!!
Back in 90’s San Francisco; Scott, Gavin and Robbie Hardkiss helped pioneer the American Underground/EDM/Rave scene with their club nights, warehouse parties and groundbreaking record label. They forged a new direction for dance music with a string of vinyl releases culminating in the seminal compilation Delusions Of Grandeur.
Delusions Of Grandeur made the Billboard Dance charts, went to #1 on the Rolling Stone Alternative Album chart and launched the international DJ/production careers of the Hardkiss brothers. This hard-to-find compilation will now celebrate its 20th Anniversary with an official release date of May 25th, 2015. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans to get their hands on all of the Hardkiss classics.
Hardkiss are an original DJ band. For many of their fans, Delusions of Grandeur was the first time they encountered electronic dance music. The Rave scene was raging and Hardkiss DJs, Gavin, Robbie & Scott were hitting multiple cities every weekend, introducing a new generation to their psychedelic funk techno sound collages. It was unclassified music. Before there were genres, there was Hardkiss.
Acclaimed British music journalist Kris Needs declared that "Hardkiss’ music defies musical barriers, time and space with off-the-teabags loved-out majesty and manages to suspend the listener in a bottomless pool of fragrant intoxicants and rabbit aphrodisiac heart rhythms." Additionally, through PledgeMusic, Hardkiss are offering all of the B-sides which were only featured on the original vinyl from ’90-‘99, plus their favorite remixes from that era (many of which have never been released before) including Scott Hardkiss’ fabled remix of Elton John's “Rocket Man” and other bootlegs including Gavin Hardkiss' edit of The Beatles' “My Sweet Lord.” More than 50 songs are featured including the track (circa 1991) “Champagne Beat Boogie” which was featured in the movie Groove. There are also remixes of Mazzy Star, The Lords of Acid and The Sandals.
A year after the heartbreaking loss of “brother” Scott Hardkiss, Gavin and Robbie Hardkiss partnered with Scott’s wife Stephanie, to relaunch the Hardkiss Music label with the release of a new album last year: Hardkiss – 1991 which was described by Magnetic Magazine as “a throwback to that heady time as well as a timely loop into the future.” Reunited in the Bay Area four years ago, Gavin and Robbie produced this album that stands tall in the often repetitive world of electronic dance music. Named for the year the Hardkiss collective was formed, 1991 references the sounds and sentiments of their early rave days while exploring new musical directions.
