Need2soul return with another instalment in a series of parties celebrating a decade of house music. Since the brand’s conception in 2004, Need2Soul have established itself at the forefront of the house music scene, and gained a solid following of high profile DJs/Producers as well as loyal and dedicated fans of all ages. Need2Soul continue to host some of the best parties in London and Europe with special appearances at the infamous Boiler Rooms with resident stalwart Ron Trent earlier this year…. Proving that they are consistent in delivering an array of talent, sold out events and stella line ups.
On Sunday 24th August not one but two of Chicago’s finest jet in for a special bank holiday gathering at Plan B in Brixton. N2S are very proud to announce Glenn Underground as the headliner, founding member of Strictly Jaz Unit. Raised on a diet of disco classics and freeform jazz of 70s Chicago, where house music was born. Taking inspiration from pioneers Larry Heard, Ron Hardy, Lil‘ Louis. Glenn has produced some of the most respected deep house music for Cajual, Prescription Guidance and Peacefrog. He is one of the few Djs who can walk the line between deep jazz, house, disco, soul and funk influenced house classics. The man is an astonishing and inspirational producer and we cannot wait to hear what he has in store for Need2Soul.
Step forward, Boo Williams another Chicago’s house veteran and innovator who can deliver the goods, also known for his quote “House music will never die! Love, peace and hair grease”. He is inspired by Larry Heard, Lil Louis and Marshall Jefferson, has had releases with Ovum Recordings, Peacefrog, Rush Hour, Relief, Cajual and collaborated with Green Velvet. Boo has a healthy discography, strong reputation and released a series of albums called “Home Town Chicago”, the first of many reissues on Anotherday Records. Watch out for this great presence, as he will be firing off on all cylinders and will certainly blow your mind.
Representing the UK, British singer, songwriter and musician Omar will be performing live, proficient in playing trumpet, piano and percussion. Omar is well known for his debut single “There’s nothing like this” which reached number 14 in the UK singles charts. Omar is described as the father of British Neo Soul music, and has since managed to collaborate with Stevie Wonder who unbeknown to him was a fan of Omar, it only took 14 years for them to finally jam together and so their song “feeling You” was born. Omar has released 6 albums to date and what can we say? It’s going to be a show full of surprises – you are in for a treat.
Plan B’s basement room will be hosted by Making Moves’ own Matt Langrish-Smith and Jamesey, local superstars in the making. The boys have established their names within the industry by hosting residences on House FM Radio, Ditch Bar, BBe & Papa Records, Soulogic, Kinki Malinki. They have thrown some of the best parties at Brixton Club House, Bedroom Bar, Light Bar and not to mention The Winter Music Conference and New York City.
Need2Soul decided to host their next party at Plan B as it features a huge Funktion One sound system, and its stripped back warehouse-style interior, makes it a perfect contender for this August bank holiday party.
