Angel Dust is back with a bang and we are roaring to spread nothing but pure vibes, love and bangin music.
What stands Angel Dust apart from so many other things, is that the parties are attended by the safest and most clued up party people you’re going to have the chance to meet, not to mention the quality and choice of the best underground house music.
This night will be our biggest one so far, so for this special occasion, we have carefully selected a stellar lineup of artists joining us to showcase there musical genius !
First up we are very proud and excited to welcome "AQUARIUS HEAVEN" to the Angel Dust family.
A bit more about the man himself
Aquarius Heaven might be new to the electronic music world, but he is no newcomer to the music scene as such: Aquarius Heaven, born Brian Brewster, is an ex reggae dance-hall and hip hop singer. It was pure chance that Brian became involved with the electronic music scene after he moved to Paris in 2005, where he meet the Parisian electronic music trio dOP.
After spending hours in the studio with the three musicians, Brian's musical sound was profoundly changed. Yet, we can still hear the colors of the Caribbean in his vocals, and since he is new to the genre, his music is unbound by the old rehashed sounds and limitations of the electronic music scene. All of this creates for a very interesting musical ride.
It was during the Summer of 2010 when Aquarius Heaven was truly born: while recording the track "Universe," Brian realised that he and Clement (of dOP) had the same birthday in February, so Brian created the name "Aquarius Heaven" under which to make electronic music.
This new chapter of his life was made official with the release of his track "Before U Go" on the Watergate 06 album, mixed by dOP.
With the release of his first EP, titled "7 Days" (on Circus Company), Aquarius Heaven started generating buzz in the music world.
Aquarius Heaven just recently released his "Can't Buy Love" EP (on Wolf + Lamb), the single of which - paired with a dark- and-sexy music video - catapulted him into the world of music-blog buzz, before the EP was even officially released.
Aquarius Heaven has only begun the journey that continues to accelerate day by day.
"Like dance-hall, the electronic world has no boundaries. That's one of the factors that I love about it, you can actually mix almost everything into it... a lot of people don't, but I like breaking rules!" – Aquarius Heaven
Next up on the line up we have a very familiar face to the music world and we could not be more excited to present
One of the original architects of the Boiler Room, which has grown to become the world’s most respected and popular underground music show, Thris Tian has built a reputation as a passionate and exciting DJ and and demonstrated his natural talent as a music selector. As the Lead Programmer / A&R for Boiler Room, he’s responsible for the dynamic and eclectic line-ups that have become synonymous with Boiler Room sessions from around the world – from London to Los Angeles, and Berlin to Cape Town.
A musical apprenticeship with Gilles Peterson at his record label Brownswood Recordings provided a solid foundation and saw Thris Tian naturally graduate to researching for Gilles’ radio shows and gigs, as well as A&Ring for the label. The most important lesson imparted by Peterson was the confidence to develop as a DJ on “instinct” and to embrace the broader spectrum of music from scenes around the world.
It’s a lesson Thris Tian took to heart as he began working at legendary London record store Sound of the Universe and their label Soul Jazz, gathering a wealth of experience and vinyl along the way. And now, labels including Ninja Tune are now seeking his recommendations and compilation selections . That lesson is also brought to life every Sunday night on Thris Tian’s Dark N’ Lovely Global Roots show on NTS. Regular listeners have learnt to expect the unexpected, tuning in for his well-travelled selections – from West African grooves to Norwegian gospel.
Thris Tian’s activities on NTS have spilled over into wonderful displays of his talent as a DJ on “instinct” – with fresh and exciting selections – and has seen him take to the decks in Hackney via Harlem and Hiroshima and all the spots in between; this has included gigs alongside Detroit legends Theo Parrish and Moodymann, London young guns Jamie XX, James Blake and Disclosure, and musical pioneers Mulatu, Erykah Badu and Q Tip. And wherever he is, you can be sure he’ll be hunting down new music and mind expansion to share on his return.
