Abovezero Daytime Terrace Party with Jordan Peak & Unai Trotti
First of all we would like to say a huge thanks for everyone who came to our debut party and made it such a memorable one.
For our next appointment we are concentrating on the deep, dark but groovy sounds of dub-house and we believe the perfect candidate to give us full introduction on the topic would be JORDAN PEAK. A young and upcoming artist from London, since his first release in 2009 his tracks have been signed and released by some of the biggest labels like 2020 Vision, Saved Records, Raum…Musik, One Records and Tsuba.
To accompany Jordan’s set we invited the almighty resident and founder of Cartuli’s Day, Unai Trotti. The man needs no further introduction, and most of you have seen him playing across London. His own promotion Cartuli’s Day celebrates it’s 3rd anniversary this year and is well established in the East London party scene.
The location and opening hours stay the same but we dropped the price on the door to make it easier for you:).
There are limited £5 tickets available from resident advisor. For £6 Concession list send your full names to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you bring your biggest smile alongside nicely warmed up dancing shoes as AboveZero comes to town again!
Most people chance upon the world of 4/4 music in their teenage years, however a young Jordan Peak was exposed much sooner. Born just a year before the second summer of love, the youngster was raised amidst stacks of 12” vinyl and surrounded by house music from his earliest days. This extremely promising newcomer to the dance music scene was well schooled in the art of groove long before he started making music himself.
Focusing on low slung house music full of swing and swagger, Jordan has a knack for creating raw analogue charm and already encompasses a growing spectrum of sounds. Currently in the midst of a speedy ascent through the production ranks, his output already includes an intriguing set of releases, for a UK act, on labels such as Robsoul, Raum…Musik, Saved and Tsuba. This is quite an introduction to music making, considering that Jordan only released his first record in late 2009.
This year will see further releases on these labels, as well as new material on Hudd Traxx’ sister label Smoke City, and an EP on Adam Shelton and Subb-an’s exciting new One Records imprint, which is part of an intriguing new wave of UK labels. This new charge is spearheaded by the likes of Jordan and fellow Brits like Robert James – who were together named on Radio 1’s ‘Introducing’ section of the Essential Selection as being the names to watch in 2011.
Dj & producer Unai Trotti always had an innate passion for electronic music.
Born in Bilbao but lived in Madrid, while being a teenager he begins to focus on the electronic music (support “cassette”) and shares a number of sessions between his circle of friends.
At the age of 13 years, acquiring his first turntables and his introduction to the world of vinyl, Unai starts to buy a large number of vinyl in the world of underground artists such as Depeche Mode, Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Derrick May, etc., and types of music electronic Techno, Tech House, Deep, etc..
Once he finished his high school studies he enters the ECAM, where he studied Sound Engineering. Years are devoted to his studies and his DJ sets are made in private parties.
After some time working as a sound technician in direct tours of various artists and companies of Dance, decided to travel to London in 2008 and expand his knowledge of sound, with the support of his family.
In London Unai starts to work as waiter in the famous Café1001.
It is here where he met Altino Fernandes (aka KID AM) and joins Brickbeat collective.
Brickbeat is a group of dj, vj and free thinkers sharing the love for the music beats and also is a well- known London’s promotion, founded by Altino fernandes and Gabriel Pereira in 2004, famous for bringing new talented artists and famous international guests to its parties.
Being part of Brickbeat gives to Unai the opportunity to play several times in Cafe 1001.
Unai and his dynamic dj sets shortly begun to get noticed by the crowd.
In October 2009 Unai throw his first own warehouse party called Cartuli’s Day, based in different warehouse in East London area, with the aim of bringing back the almost lost underground spirit in the tech/house minimal parties in the beating heart of London’s music scene, the East side. Cartuli’s Day gives to Unai the opportunity to make himself noticed not just by the audience but also by the industry: in short time he has been invited to play in the most famous London’s venues (Fabric,Ministry of Sound, The Egg, Cable, Café 1001 , Bar 54 ,Rhythm Factory and more) as much as in Madrid (Club7, Fabrik, Goa) and abroad (Basque Country, Portugal). Cartuli’s Day has also been hosted in Madrd and it is now a well-known and recognisable party in London.
In 2009 Unai takes his first steps into production, beginning to make his first tracks and collaborating with other DJ’s and producers.
Released in January 2010 his first EP “Pigeons” for Beiak Records, and in 2011 “Entre Encinas” in a various artists album for Release Sustain, an East London based label founded by Gabriel Pereira, Rico Casazza & Altino Fernandes.
Unai’s talent is revealed in both production and dj sets.
Always giving himself entirely to the audience, Unai’s mixes are a reflection of his personality:
dynamic groovy, deep and intense. Unai’s style goes from techouse to techno to more melodic & deep sounds, passing by minimal & dub. In constant connection with the crowd, Unai always creates a specific feeling on the dancefloor: only thing you can do while Unai is on the decks is dancing.
Now working full time between the studio and Cartuli’s Day, with a new release coming out soon, a special edition of his party in July and various gigs in London and abroad (Portugal, Spain), Unai is surely a talented artist to watch with a bright career in front of him, a name not to forget.
