DAS IST DER HAMMER!
For this club night named after a German expression of enthusiasm (they must love hammers), Marcel Wave has joined forces with Soft Riot to bring Sheffield a synth party worthy of its pedigree as the origin of much of the UK’s synth-pop heritage. See Der Hammer’s page for more info.
Although the city has given the world bands such as the Human League, Heaven 17 and Cabaret Voltaire, upon moving there from London last summer, the two compères formed the impression that the Steel City was lacking a synth night of its own.
Acting as DJ Lady Boy, Marcel will be playing synthesized music old and new, ranging from early 80’s new wave and italo to current electronica, via turn-of-the-century forms such as electroclash and Romo. For a taste of what will be on offer, see a recent Lady Boy mix for a basement party on Marcel’s Mixcloud. Guest DJ’s Less than Zero from London will also make an appearance.
Live music (and lights and smoke) will be provided by Soft Riot, Canadian purveyor of off-the-wall minimal synth, and the Silent Age, a dramatic local synth/goth outfit!
Admission is free, and the party starts at 9 pm, going on until 2 am.
Venue: DADA, Trippet Lane, Sheffield S1 4EL (more info here)
