Liverpool promoters Freeze have done it again and are putting on another night in one of Liverpool’s most unusual places. With their rich history of quirky events in the Williamson tunnels, a disused mining shaft and Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral, they have this year decided to go all posh on us, and hold a 20 year celebration for one of the world’s most iconic music labels Renaissance, in St Georges Hall. It has played host to royalty, held various ball’s and tea dances, piano concerts an even the odd appearance from a Beatle or two! There is history and luxury oozing from every wall and for one night only, the chandeliers will shake, the furniture will rattle and the beautiful minton floor will just have to get used to a little more than it’s usual tap dance.
Renaissance is a pioneering music brand that helped launch the careers of many world class DJ’s, and now some of the labels biggest names will come together to celebrate its devotion and love to the industry. The event will take place on Saturday 15th September, starting early at 7pm till 1am. There will be an after party later on with just 500 tickets on sale, but more information for that is yet to be released. Hernan Cattaneo, Henry Saiz, Danny Howells, Jemmy and Ghosting Season will all combine their individual music creativity for one night of exquisite merriment! Oh I say!
Headlining the event is the Argentinean DJ Hernan Cattaneo who is known for his legendary career in the underground house scene, alongside huge names like Sasha and John Digweed. The September gig marks a return to Liverpool for both Hernan Cattaneo and Danny Howells who has also made quite a name for himself. His unique sound which has been described as “deepsexyfuturistictechfunkhouse” will transform the grade 1 listed building into a futuristic dancing funk house.
Rising star on the melodic house and techno scene, Henry Saiz will also be making a return to Liverpool. I first heard his music on an Electronic Groove podcast and absolutely fell in love with him, he is one to keep your eye on in the future, and I can’t wait to see him live for the first time at St Georges Hall! To give the event an added bit of edginess, Ghosting Season are invited to bring an interesting twist to the night. the Mancuiniun band are rapidly building a name for themselves after releasing their debut album The Very Last Of The Saints In May 2011.
Last but not least, Cream resident Jemmy is also playing the insane line-up in the magnificent surroundings of St Georges Hall, Liverpool. Surely a highlight of his growing career to date, as well as a monumental mark in history for Liverpool night life. Continuing Freezes emotional commitment to Breast Cancer awareness, a percentage of all ticket sales will be donated to the cause.
Tickets start at £15 NUS to £23 for after party too. Don’t miss out on a truly historic night! Buy your tickets here!
