Printworks London continues to dominate the underground club scene by announcing six more forward thinking shows for the first part of 2019, in addition to their upcoming 17 shows.
Printworks has hit the ground running in 2019, and now announce another batch of house and techno shows that bring yet more diversity and depth to the club’s already vital offerings. Six more carefully curated events between now and April 27th will welcome a selection of world class DJs and live acts including Solomun, Stephan Bodzin, Mind Against, Kenny Dope, Booka Shade, RPR Soundsystem, and Todd Terry, as well as brand new event concepts Sunday Service and Clash In The Capital.
The first of these new shows is held in the Press Halls on April 5th and sees the melodic house master house Solomun back in London playing an extended set after sold out shows at the 02 Academy Brixton and Koko Camden during 2017 and 2018. Off the back of a hugely successful residency at Pacha, Ibiza, the Diynamic boss has had quite a year with the ‘Customer is King’ EP celebrating Dynamic’s 100th release and even collaborating with video game GTA Online: After hours. Joining him will be Disco Halal boss Moscoman, twisting house, disco and techno into his own trance-inducing form and rounding off a 2019 instalment not to be missed.
On the 14th April, Printworks (both the Press Halls and the Dark Room) will be taken over with a 40-strong crew of DJs, dancers and performers to create a brand new day party for lovers of house and disco. East Creative, the team behind the brand new event ‘Sunday Service’ are also the team behind some of the UK’s biggest LGBTQ+ inclusive events such as Sink The Pink and Mighty Hoopla. Expect a day of pure and unadulterated house music with legends like Todd Terry — who has pioneered his own brand of deep house since the 90s—as well as one half of Masters at Work and house encyclopaedia Kenny Dope and Classic Music co-founder Luke Solomun. Joining these heavyweights are House Gospel Choir, Absolute and Josh James, so you can be sure every shade of authentic and atmospheric house will be covered.
April 19th sees one of the most celebrated live acts in techno, Stephan Bodzin, brings his mesmeric sounds and skills to the vast Printworks. Further live excellence comes from dance icons Booka Shade and and Christian Löffler who’ll be playing live, alongside the almighty Mind Against, Dominik Eulberg & Fideles.
Then on April 21st cutting edge minimalists RPR Soundsystem bring their infectious, stripped-back and masterfully orchestrated grooves to the club with three of the most revered minimal DJs of all time, coming together for a very rare Live AV set in the capital with good friend Dreamrec (VJ). Regarded by Ricardo Villalobos as his ‘favorite DJs’, RPR Represent some of the very best minimal music and only play as a trio once a year in London, making this evening even more special with an extended at Canada Water’s Printworks.
On April 18th, another first for 2019, Clash in the Capital will arrive at Printworks, the UK’s biggest ever drum and bass soundclash hosted by two legendary figureheads, Fabio & Grooverider. Inspired by the traditional Jamaican roots of sound clash culture, on Easter Thursday 18th April four stalwart crews in Jungle and dnb: Jungle Warriors, Shadow Demon Coalition, Serial Killaz x Born On Road and Dub Shotta will venture to Canada Water to go head-to-head. Two sound systems will be fitted at either end of Printworks for the very first time since the venue’s inception, where each crew will step up to deliver the most damaging dubplates, finest selections & greatest mixes across three relentless rounds.
Last of all Printworks will see essential tech house party and label, Solid Grooves return for their 7th Birthday on April 27th. Not only hosting parties around the capital, the team had a huge summer season at Privilege, Ibiza. The previous event sold out well in advance during the Autumn, so this highly anticipated event is expected to be just as popular.
These latest additions join an already bursting-at-the-seams offering from Printworks in 2019. As such, there is no excuse not to check out the UK’s most innovative club.
