93 Feet East / 27th April / 7 – 1 / FREE IN
The second installment of Fresh Kicks residency at 93 Feet East brings together the AV wizardry of Urban Knights and the dancefloor trickery of Mickey Moonlight.
With the transcendence of electronic music into every corner of the globe and the emergence of too many bedroom DJ’s, the Urban Knights have risen above the mire with their refreshing blasts of audio visual delights. KANE and KVL are two young producers with a rampant thirst for new material and ground breaking concepts.
Their torrid turntable terrorism which fuses Hip Hop licks over all things bass driven has seen them rocking crowds in such illustrious locations as Brazil, Costa Rica, France, Switzerland, Turkey, Germany and Austria. The Passion and energy that oozes from every iota of their sets heralded them becoming the first resident DJ’s of Swatch Watches and headlining the Snowbombing tour.
The Urban Knights love of Rib crackling dirty beats layered over electro house, Dub-step and Breaks is an audio treat of the most indulgent variety which has left dance floors the world over dripping in sweat and gagging for more. The skill of the Urban Knights is not just confined to the realm of Audio Excitement, as their live visual shows will testify, this fusion of music and film is another notch on their illustrious career bed post.
Signed to the hugely influential Ed Banger Records, Mike Silver, AKA Mickey Moonlight, has been described as ‘Eccentric Electro’ and ‘The thinking fan’s pop…’ He prefers to think of his sound as Science-fiction Exotica. No matter what you call it, his singular and unique vision has put him on tour with Soulwax/Too May DJs as the tour DJ, Remixing everyone from Franz Ferdinand to Tame Impala by way of The Crookers and releasing a Mix CD for super-chic Pariaian concept store Collette.
His DJ sets are not to be missed and Fresh Kicks is a brilliant opportunity to catch him in front of a discerning London crowd ready to party!

After much back and forth on style and direction he has ended up with an underground house leaning that he feels best reflects who he is musically.
