Fancying an evening of soulful house and deeper than deep tech house, DJ Mag have called upon Objektivity for the latest in the DJ Mag Sessions series, with Dennis Ferrer organising his label mates across the terrace and the garden of Egg LDN on the last day of this month.
Dennis Ferrer has had a long career; producing techno tracks in the 90s and making inroads into Afro and gospel house alongside Kerri Chandler, each of Ferrer’s numerous dancefloor hits has shown a different element of his identity. As long as it gets people moving, he’ll embrace it - and this has been the cornerstone of Objektivity’s musical policy as well.
This musical policy has led to the uncovering of numerous starlets, including Ferrer’s partner in the garden for the DJ Mag Session: André Hommen. Hommen has dedicated himself to house music ever since discovering it through the radio at home in Germany’s Nettetal, enjoying the warm techy grooves that his favourite artists shared and making a career for himself with a not dissimilar aesthetic. Spacey and sparse, his productions put the emphasis firmly on the rhythm and the groove, leaving plenty of room for thought in the gaps in between.
Over in the terrace, Circoloco resident Tania Vulcano will conjure up the same spell that has entranced Ibiza since before the millennium clock struck 2, with shades-on tech house and washed out chords aplenty. Joining her, Liverpool’s Lauren Lo Sung will add a complimentary dose of dub techno, entwining homages to Chicago and Detroit as she demonstrates the prowess that has helped her LOLiFE parties catch the attention of The Warehouse Project in Manchester. Tania and Lauren will also share the terrace with Blackhall & Bookless, an upcoming British duo with two well-received releases on Jaunt, and more names are expected to be added to the lineup soon.
