On February 2nd, another instalment of Flood will once again be bringing an innovative and tasty line-up to London’s East End that reflects their continuing passion for delivering something unique to the clubbing scene away from the mainstream. In the past, they’ve collaborated with other collectives to bring a range of international and local techno innovators to the UK, showcasing them within an intimate East London context they wouldn’t normally be seen in: from their launch party with Peckham’s finest Wbeeza; to international star Alexi Delano, whose hybrid techno/acid house productions have been released on prestigious labels such as ‘Richie Hawtin’s ‘Plus 8’; to, more recently, house pioneers Milton Jackson & Shur-i-kan. Their line-ups continue to be interesting because they select artists based on their musical prowess and nothing else, and therefore their bookings have been hugely diverse in their productions and international reach, although many of them have been doing their thing since the 90s (which says a lot about the quality of music on the night).
Once again exceeding expectations, the Flood team are hosting BABY FORD. Famous for his contributions to the burgeoning acid house scene in the late 1980s with his Ford Trax album, released on Rhythm King, he is amongst the living techno legends of the U.K. Real name Peter Ford, Baby Ford has released under a number of different monikers over the decades and in the 90s became a seminal figure in the minimalist scene, when releasing on the legendary Perlon label alongside Ricardo Villalobos, and playing as a resident at ‘Get Perlonized’ at the Panorama Bar in Berlin.
Not only can the Flood guys guarantee we won’t be able to see such a legend in such an intimate environment, but they’ve also invited Kanaka Projects from Rome to construct a visual/lighting experience that will parallel what’s going on behind the decks.
Doors open at the not-as-yet announced venue at 10pm on Saturday 2nd February, and the party goes on until 7am. The tickets at the moment only cost £8 but will rise to £10 and then be more on the door.
