!(feature_l)http://relayer.s3.amazonaws.com/articles/spreads/4f119b502f8fa40001000045.jpg!The A Night With… series has seen Derrick Carter, Miss Kittin, Matthew Dear, Ellen Allien and Magda get behind the decks for an eight hour session. Completely unsupported, these have been nights to remember as the iconic mixers have raided their record collections to give the audience on a musical education while demonstrating their passions, skills and sounds. Next up is Sebo K on Saturday, February 11th at Shoreditch’s Basing House and later in the year Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, and Craig Richards will feature.
Renowned for merging cutting edge sounds with vintage accents, Sebo K is both mobilee’s longest serving artist and its beating heart of house music. His melodic tech-house grooves like “Moved” and his “Rancho Relaxo” collaboration with Anja Schneider, have provided some of the imprint’s musical highlights. He’s also mixed up the label’s Back Up Vol 1 compilation, remixed (Watergate 04). He’s a unique and influential figure within Berlin’s densely populated music community; both crowd-pleasing and credible, he is a bona fide tastemaker who distinguishes himself by exploring the connective threads between classics from Chicago and Detroit, and modern European tech house, minimal, and rolling percussive grooves.
However, it’s his DJing that’s arguably his real forte, stemming from a long career behind the decks that started at Alec Empire’s Berlin-based Bass Terror parties in the ’90s. After embarking upon study for the past three years, he has recently upped the ante in terms of club appearances with his residency for internationally renowned Berlin club Watergate since 2002 as well as Panorama Bar in Berlin, Rex Club in Paris
Effortlessly transitioning from deep soulfulness, to tough stripped-down sounds, and back again, Sebo K has reinforced the enduring importance of house music throughout the perpetual cycles of trends, and this ability to command a club crowd has been equaled by his exceptional productions.
