Bedlam has it’s eyes on London and plans to hit it hard…
Bedlam started out almost 2 years ago in Maidstone, Kent, being Tim Green’s own little underground night, boasting some of the industries finest DJs playing the most forward thinking house music that can be found. Drafting in such names as M.A.N.D.Y., Martin Buttrich, Audiofly, Leon, Cassy, Lee Burridge, Matthias Tanzmann, Emerson Todd, and 2000 And One, Bedlam has made its mark proving its ability to put on one hell of a party.
Now Tim Green and his Bedlam team are taking the inevitable next step and launching Bedlam for the first time in London. A move which will no doubt receive a warm welcome from the capital. After Guerilla Sounds attended the Bedlam 1st Birthday it was evident that Bedlam was onto something as the atmosphere was electric and it was only a matter of time before they made the move to London.
Bedlam have put together an amazing line-up of some truly ground breaking acts who have taken dance floors across the globe by storm with their unique sounds injected into their music. Joining Tim Green is Cadenza’s Pablo Cahn who will undoubtedly rock the Bedlam night just as much as his Summer hit ‘Elle’ did to countless dance floors and Crosstown Rebels’s duo act Art Department are set to stir things up with their unique dynamic sound. And let’s not forget Rich Adam, co-founder of the East London night Simmer, who will be setting the tone for Bedlam with some impeccable music.
It may be Bedlam’s first appearance in the capital but with Tim Green at the helm and an experienced team of music enthusiasts powering Bedlam, it will be without a doubt the most electrified and freshest night London has seen.
Nearly 2 years in the running and Bedlam just seems to be going from strength to strength….
Over the course of nearly 2 years since the creation of the profound Maidstone (Kent) underground night Bedlam [Kent], it seems that Tim Green & Co are determined to make their mark on the scene as they reach new heights.
Bedlam, being the night of fast rising UK talent, DJ/Producer Tim Green. Tim Green being the man behind great tracks like “Old Sunshine”, who has seen both his name and production work on outstanding labels such as Get Physical, Dirtybird and Cocoon. And the Co being the dedicated people [Forward Thinking Music Management] behind the organisation of the night, helping both Tim Green and Bedlam to reach new heights.
From day one hosting the likes of M.A.N.D.Y., Martin Buttrich, Audio Fly, Lee Burridge, Matthias Tanzmann, Emerson Todd and 2000 And One, Bedlam has been smashing places like Maidstone hot spot, The Loft, some old abandoned cinema and now the historic Chatham monument, The Tunnel. And Bedlam seems to be focusing on those venues that are just dripping with pure underground vibe, which seems to be another key to its success along with the countless talent of DJs they are drafting in!
And with The Tunnel being the prime location we made sure we were at the Bedlam 1st Birthday almost 1 year ago. Where we soaked up the energy of Tim Green banging out his very own “Old Sunshine” and Matthias Tanzmann building the crowd with Yousef’s “Come Home”. We can honestly say that Bedlam @ The Tunnel is a truly momentous night indeed. Which is why Bedlam at The Tunnel returns once again this weekend [29 Jan] to host rising Italian house star Leon and very special guest Cassy. And of course resident Tim Green!
Cassy, well-known for playing DC10, Cocoon (Ibiza), Panorama Bar and Fabric, is undoubtably one of the best DJs on the scene. With her music being released on Souvenir, Cocoon and the almighty German giant Perlon Records, not to mention her mix CDs for Panorama Bar and Cocoon, she has gained huge respect in the underground scene. Her unique style and party vibe earning her back2back sessions with Ricardo Villalobos as she focuses on weaving deep and dark house music, twisted techno along with skill and finesse. There’s no doubt about how things are going to turn out for Bedlam!
Leon returns to Bedlam after having played an impressive set at the beginning of 2010 alongside M.A.N.D.Y. Having releases out on Nick Curly’s Cecille Records and Steve Lawler’s VIVa MUSiC, his talents have been gaining recognition from world-class DJs as Pete Tong, Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Cox, Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Loco Dice, M.A.N.D.Y., Tiefschwarz, Matthias Tanzmann, Nic Fanciulli, Danny Howells and Marco Carola. Adding to that, an extensive 17 date tour of the USA and Canada along with constant dates in Italy, UK, Germany, Holland, Russia and Spain, it’s not hard to see why Bedlam has got Leon back behind the console.
Which brings us back to the point of success. Because it’s not just the countless number of exceptional DJs that give the feeling of climbing success, it’s also with the added expansion and launch of Bedlam London. An act of proof that Tim Green & Co not only have the credentials but also the vision – “determined to make their mark on the scene”.
Bedlam London, set for a secret East London venue on the 19th March, boasts the presence of the Cadenza star known for the hit release “Elle” and collaboration with Cadenza co-star Cesar Merveille, Columbian born Pablo Cahn along with Crosstown Rebels duo, Art Department. – One word – Sick!
All we can conclude is that London may be a bigger pond but with Bedlam’s track record and reputation, it was inevitable that it would start to out-grow its current location and search for a larger environment, which will simple fuel its success.
Wiggle set to be a storm with Cadenza star Cesar Merveille….
After a truly electric sell out night on NYE, Wiggle are set to keep the energy flowing with their first date for 2011 playing host to Cadenza’s Cesar Merveille. Cesar makes his return to Wiggle after blowing the roof off during his last appearance.
Cesar Merveille has rocketed to success over the last three years with a demand for his talent stretching all over the globe, as well as becoming a regular player in the Cadenza worldwide showcase tour. Cesar has quickly made a name for himself with releases on Cadenza, Circus, Serialism and Safari Electronique. His “Chocopop Jazz” making a huge impact in 2008, followed by his debut appearance on Cadenza in 2009 with his “Descarga EP” – being known as a major highlight in Luciano’s sets – made in collaboration with Pablo Cahn. With this kind of track record it’s no surprise that Cesar is known for emitting an overwhelming energy from his sets and is undoubtably likely to do the same at Wiggle.
Setting the musical journey at Wiggle is one of London’s key underground house music figure JB (aka Jon Barnet). Having his roots firmly grounded in the Acid House era, he has kept himself in all the right places to make his mark and gaining the respect and reputation he deserves. JB will be setting the pace and giving the night the right kick-start to what will be a fully energetic shakedown.
