Grab yourself a party hat, and put on your dancing shoes as we celebrate the 7th birthday of the much loved Half Baked. And what a 7 years it has been. They are known worldwide for the contagious vibe they bring time and time again, always keeping it fresh, bringing to you the creativity and ideas of the family they have grown over the years.
To celebrate this momentous occasion they have curated something beyond even the craziest music lovers imagination. A heavyweight line up of carefully selected artists have been called upon, giving a true reflection of what the party is about, representing the journey they have been on since their birth back in 2009. On the 26th November, playing host to the biggest birthday party of the year is the unique and industrial south east London rave space, Great Suffolk St Warehouse. Yes, you did hear that right.
Not only is it a rare occasion for this amazing warehouse being put to such great use, it is even more of a rarity to see the three headliners touching down in London, all at the same time. After all of them making individual appearances at Half Baked parties spread out across the year, it seems more than fitting that [a:rpia:r] sound system will be taking you on all night long journey. Deep in the depths of these special tunnels the perfect blend of bouncy minimal grooves will be thrown down by Raresh, PetreInspirescu and Rhadoo. The Romanian trio always bring such an unbelievable vibe, and we can assure you, you really don’t want to miss this.
It wouldn’t be a real birthday party without some Perlon love, would it? The mistress, Margaret Dygas will be bringing her eclectic sounds, as she touches on all corners of the electronic world. Followed by the master, with a pure genius back catalogue, Sammy Dee will be dabbling in all kinds of obscure sounds, pushing the boundaries as he does best. Rumbling their sounds through the warehouse space, will be dynamic duo ToFu Productions (Fumiya Tanaka & Thomas Melchior) playing together all over the world, and both with years of experience this is guaranteed magic.
Time for the groove. The killer combination of Seuil, Le Loup and long term Half Baked resident Robin Ordell Aka Pap Inc will be supplying you with warm loops and crazy house cuts. Cabanne&Lowris have built a strong relationship moving the dance floor of Concrete, Paris regularly on a Sunday so it will be fantastic to experience the chemistry within the brick arches of London. With previous releases on the label and a long term friendship with the Half Baked familia it is great to see Mike Shannon will be showing his face for the Birthday bash. And of course Half Baked main guy, Greg Brockmann’s experimental sounds will be unleashed, and we are sure he will have even more tricks up his sleeve for this milestone event.
