Tribal Sessions recently revealed their opening run of shows at Fire in London, as the party begins its latest global residency at Fire in London on Friday 9 October. Tribal Sessions has evolved from its original roots at the Tribal Gathering festivals and warehouse event, to Sankeys in Manchester and at present at Sankeys in Ibiza, the season there coming to an end as London begins.
The first wave of shows illustrates the spectrum of sounds to expect. Juan Atkins headlines the launch party on Friday 9 October, with Be As One label found Shlomi Aber playing too. Redshape joins them, with support from Blue Hour and Tribal’s resident, Jozef K.
Booka Shade (live) headline Friday 16 October. Fellow Berliner Re.You also stars along with Argy. Manu Gonzales and Jim Rider complete the billing.
As well as helping to break Hot Since 82 and Finnebassen on his own label, Noir is possibly one of house music’s hottest names, with an Essential Mix to his name and a slew of releases - and he headlines on Friday 23 October. Phil Weeks and The Revenge join him, as well as Jozef K.
Finally Friday 30 October is a Halloween special with an acid-house tinged feel. DJ Pierre is one of the founders of the Chicago scene, highly lauded both behind the decks and in the studio. Fellow guests Dark Sky draw from everything including original UK garage through to house, via D&B and hip hop, with releases on Ninja Tune, 50 Weapons and Blunted Robots, whilst Danish duo Anek are Viva Warriors residents and continue to release productions.
Jozef K is again on deck duty for this show too, and Room 2 is hosted by Kerri Chandler's Madtech Records imprint with No Artificial Colours, Demarzo and Kashii.
