Kings Cross in Camden Cluster & Camden Underground presents…
Martyn Ware, the electronic music pioneer who formed legendary synthesiser groups Human League and Heaven 17, will be making a rare DJ appearance at proper London music boozer, The Constitution, in Camden. The writer of classic songs such as Being Boiled, the evergreen (We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thing, which was banned by the BBC at the time, and Temptation, Martyn Ware’s work as a record producer saw him revitalise Tina Turner’s career in the 1980’s and kick start Terence Trent D’Arby’s career. He’s also noted for work in Surround Sound technology and, more recently, for the creation of sound installations.
Ware is a Visiting Professor at Queen Mary University, a member of BAFTA, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, has an Honorary Doctorate in Science from the University of London and is principle of Tile Yard music college around the corner to tonight’s venue in Kings’ Cross.
Martyn is joined by Ben Osborne, DJ, award wining creative producer, author of books and founder of Noise of Art. Time Out has described Ben as a polymath and says his DJ sets include “techno, funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite”. His A-Z of Club Culture has been described as ‘essential’ by Gilles Peterson.
Kings Cross in Camden Cluster is a free series of social events run by and for creative people living and working in Kings Cross and Camden area.
