VJ Girl In A T-Shirt
Free (first 100 registered)
Acclaimed acid-house veteran Justin Robertson launches Ben Osborne’s new DJ night in Farringdon, alongside residents Bobby Bucys, Itchy Soul, Neil Thornton and VJ Girl In A T-Shirt.
The night channels influences from similarly named institutions in clubland history. The original White Trash pioneered early ’80’s electro in London in 1982. Berlin’s White Trash rocked Germany’s new capital in the early 2000s. Erol Alkan’s Trash night shredded The End’s dancefloor in the mid-Naughties electroclash era. Today’s White Trash takes place at the iconic, tile-clad interior of White Bear, London and Brighton music mainstay Mick Robinson’s (aka Peli Rocco) new venue.
White Trash will be easing into the night with mostly vinyl mixes of warm disco grooves, before launching into more caustic, upfront genres.
Justin Robertson’s 30 years of innovating fascinating forward-thinking music makes him an ideal launch guest, and future collaborator, for White Trash. Often credited for turning the Chemical Brothers onto dance music, he’s frequently asked to guest for them at their more refined parties. His chart topping radio shows, “The Temple of Wonders” and “The Rotating Institute”, go out bimonthly on Soho Radio. His latest musical incarnation, The Deadstock 33s, has been garnishing lavish praise from established figures such as Erol Alkan, Eats Everything, Ivan Smagghe and Daniel Avery; with whom he has a long-standing production partnership.
Described as a 'polymath' by Time Out, Ben Osborne is a DJ, writer, award winning creative producer and founder of Noise of Art, a collective which marries music with art, film and other disciplines. He DJs clubs internationally and presents radio shows for Slack City Radio, on DAB in Manchester, Brighton, Norwich and Portsmouth (he formerly did dance shows for Xfm and NME Radio). A proflific scribe for magazines such as DJ Mag and newspapers, he’s written books on the history of electronic music and the Arctic Monkeys.
In common with other DJs tonight, Bobby Bucys also broadcasts on radio - this time for his own Ipswich based station. North London’s Itchy Soul crew can be found on Smithfield’s very own Music Box Radio, as well as DJing at various London hideaways. Laser Magnetic and Shoreditch disco veteran Neil Thornton made his mark when he started nights at the infamous ‘Disco Pub’, before going on to become chef-de-party at Disappearing Dinning Club.
