In store gigs are always good fun, from the guest DJ who gets to play at an intimate space surrounded by some of his/her favourite records, and from fans who get to browse through these records while listening to one of their favourite DJs. Next friday we see Need2Soul’s Ron Trent taking over Soho by playing in one of the capital’s most respected, if not best electronic music record stores. Yep that’s right, it’s good old Phonica!
Phonica has become an institution and holds a special place within the electronic music community in London and around the world. Holding an impressive catalogue of the latest and hottest wax, DJs and dance music fans can be seen flocking to the humble store as they race to get the latest copies of records they have been eagerly waiting to be released. Phonica from time to time, also houses in store gigs from the creme de la creme of all sub genres of electronic music, to the delight of dance music fans. In store gigs have included a wide spectrum of DJs from Four-Tet to Maceo Plex.
Ardent record collectors during their post work in store browse through will get a lovely treat as US House veteran Ron Trent will be spinning some records on Friday, 7th of November, starting at 7:30pm.
Ron Trent, as Phonica mentioned, is “a Need2Soul hero” . He was crowned a Chicago house legend when he first released 90s classic ‘Altered States’ (released in 1990). He showcases his own deep house sounds via his own label, Prescriptive Records.
Ron Trent’s in store will be just a taste of his all night long gig at Plan B, Brixton the next night, on Saturday 8th of November.
Friday, 7th November @ 8pm
Saturday, 8th November: 22:00–06:00
