Berlin weather is a tempestuous dame and if you find yourself hungering for indoor distractions there is no better place to be every Friday and Saturday night through October than Le Faubourg Lounge Bar with our monthly DJ programme. Many of our regulars are back this month so come on down and enjoy, because the music sounds better with you’.
Friday 6th October Hara Katsiki
Greece’s contribution to Germany is the legendary Hara Katsiki and we are truly grateful. Her style was developed in the Athens club scene and the foundations of her music today are in moody electronic blends of lounge, deep house and slow motion disco. Her sexy lounge music has been a hit at festivals and events across Europe and she has spent more than a decade of her career holding court at clubs in Athens and the Greek Islands. She is a Lounge Bar favourite and never disappoints with her moody electronic blends. She also has a very cool Tumblr and of course you can tune in to her magic on soundcloud.
Saturday 7th October Danny Russell
Honing his skills on the underground scene of Manchester, Danny Russell has been a constant feature at many of the city’s most reputable venues from The Attic and Zumbar to Bluu and Sankeys. With a musical maturity advanced beyond his years, his sets are energetically delivered with a tight precision that amalgamates Balearic house and deep disco into one sizzling blend of sounds. An ardent vinyl collector since ’97 his musical philosophy is built upon robust and creative foundations. Favourite imprints include such bastions of sounds as Sound Signature, Disco Deviance, Rüf kütz, West End, Salsoul, Balihu and Tommy Boy. As a DJ he’s been capturing the mood of the dancefloor since ’98 and putting this crate digging talents to work as a proud ‘Audio Architect’. Now based in Berlin, Danny’s story continues upon a new canvas set right in the motherland of electronic music.
