Following on from the sell out success of the first event back in February, the official Cream reunion is back bigger and better in May, with another chance to relive a magical era of Cream.
The event has increasing capacity by moving into Nation's main room, and will be headlined by a yet to be announced special guest, joined by the stunning Jan Johnston. Described as 'the first lady of trance' Jan's instantly recognisable and haunting ethereal vocals melt the senses and touch the soul. Accepted the world over as one of the finest in the business, Jan turns great records into timeless classics and has worked and collaborated with the likes of Paul Oakenfold, BT, Chicane & Tiesto.
Joining Jan will be Frankfurt DJ and producer Oliver Lieb. An instant addition to electronic music's hall of fame with around two dozen aliases and well over 200 productions and remixes to his name, the German maestro has been a purveyor of mesmerising progressive, trance, house and techno for over 20 years. Combining deep bass frequencies and moving melodies, Oliver is most famed for his work under his L.S.G. moniker, creating masterpieces such as Netherworld, Hidden Sun Of Venus, Shecan and Into Deep, which have been championed at Cream by the likes of Sasha, Paul Oakenfold and Parks & Wilson.
Warming up the night's proceedings will be none other than local legend Steve Parry. With 20 years' experience under his belt, Steve's house and progressive sound has graced many of the world's top nightclubs and events, including Cream, Bedrock, Renaissance and the Zurich Street Parade - where he played to to over 1 million people. With 10 years as Manager of 3beat Records and a weekly radio show on Juice FM, Steve’s ear for a tune is second to none.
Completing the line-up is promoter and resident Samuel Lamont. After playing an Oakey inspired closing set in the Annexe, Sam’s versatility, creativeness and knowledge of his audience will once again be in full force to deliver the music and memories that we all crave.
Once again the door policy will be over 25s and ticket only, to ensure that the crowd will remain faithful to the one that graced the dancefloor at Cream's weekly parties in the 90's and early 00's.
Promoter Samuel Lamont explains the move to the Main Room: "Cream has offered so much in the Annexe, Main Room and Courtyard over the years that it would be wrong not to experience each one. We want to put the right DJs in the right rooms to make it work properly and give that added sense of nostalgia. I think we've managed that to date and will continue to do so in the future."
Watch this space for the announcement of the Special Guest on 17th April.
