The packed-out venue had a lively vibe that embraced a wide-range of styles reverberating through the intimate space for an impressive debut.
We entered the Elephant and Castle club just after midnight as Tin Man was midway through his live set of intense acid. The unmistakable 303 sound was twisted and reworked every way Tin Man could muster with pumping 4/4 beats that ensured an frenetic start to the night. Next up was Omar S with a three hour set. The classy Detroit mixer was in an eclectic mood, taking us on a journey through his range of styles. From vocal house and retro disco through to low-fi techno and vibrant house, there were moments of being lost in a vibrant booty shaker, then grooving to a forgotten disco gem before drifting into a warmly minimalist slow-burner. The FXHE Records boss practically swaggered through his set, keeping room one’s dancefloor densely packed with delighted ravers.
Kassem Mosse took over from Omar S with a live set that shifted the tone from an uplifting atmosphere into a deep environment full of soundscapes with the occasional driving burst. An intense aural experience, Mosse was uncompromising in his delivery but rewarded those willing to take the trip with an immersive hour of rich techno. We finished the night with Asquith’s dark, mechanical techno in room two. The rawness of the music was a healthy detox from the depth of Kassem Mosse, yet inventive enough to provoke a lively response from the dancefloor. We left feeling we’d seen some of the finest house and techno on offer in London, and look forward to further Find Me In the Dark events.
