Taking place for the first time at Merienda Treasury Court in Carlisle, the Uber Bank Holiday special will be an intimate terrace-style gathering for just 300 music lovers, featuring an impressive line-up of house and techno heavyweights.
For this unique summer event the guys have pulled off an impressive line-up headlined by Chicago's king of the boompty boomp, Derrick Carter. When dance music entered its second stage Derrick was leading from the front in Chi-Town, making acid flecked music that looked back beyond the genre’s roots to funk and early disco. His beats jacked, his grooves popped and above all his DJ sets delivered. Derrick transforms records, tearing funk out of grooves and lifting beats to beyond their mere mortal existence. There will also be a very special guest joining proceedings - rather likely to share more than a love of house music with Derrick - that will be announced closer to the time.
Next up is Alex Metric, who'll be bringing his brand of scattershot electro and funk charged techno to Carlisle. With latest album Ammunition delivering a bevy of dancefloor slayers ‘Rave Weapon,’ ‘Epichords’ and ‘Anybody Else', this is a great opportunity to catch a DJ/producer at the top of his game.
Uber also sees a return from one of its old favourites in Yousef, who will be playing two special day and night sets. 2012 is shaping up to be a very special year for Yousef, with his sophomore album ‘A product of Your Environment’ set to drop and his iconic clubnight Circus set to celebrate its tenth anniversary September.
Next up is another Uber debut, Tim Green. Tim Green has become one of the starlets of the modern house and techno environment, possessing an idiosyncratic groove and an off kilter cheekiness which has peppered his sound beyond the usual house hallmarks and allowed his beats to parlay on Get Physical and Cocoon records.
The Warehouse Project’s Krysko, one of the most versatile and deftly endearing DJs on the UK house scene, returns - as do Uber stalwarts We Take Polaroids and Ki Creighton, the former playing live.
Local boy done good Junior G, fresh from ensnaring a residency at Ministry of Sound, tops a list of residents and friends who will round off a rather special summer soiree.
