Lioness Warehouse Party w/ Kid Sublime (Dopeness Galore, Teppne, Rush Hour) + Inkswell (Adel) – This Saturday – July 26 | Deep House, Garage, Disco


Our good friends over at Lioness will host another legendary warehouse jam featuring underground house don Kid Sublime direct from Amsterdam with local support from Edseven, Inkswell, Fred Tectonic, Henry Compton. Happening tomorrow night in a fresh inner city warehouse space.

BYO party situation with maximum underground vibes, well recommended.
10pm / BYO
Tickets via www.lioness.net.au

Fill the smoke machine and reach for the lazer, Lioness is back for a proper warehouse party.

We are stoked to announce that on Saturday 26th July ‘Kid Sublime’ (Rush Hour/Dopeness Galore) will be joining us in Sydney, all the way from Amsterdam.

Anyone that caught him in 2011 at Mad Racket will be familiar with his deep and soulful selection style. 70’s Disco, US Garage, Detroit Techno and plenty of his own productions twist and turn dancers on a joyful journey.

As a founding member of the Rednose Distrikt collective, his ear for a sample and innovative approach to production can be heard throughout his broad range of releases. From the Deep House series ‘Basement Works’ (Rush Hour) to the soul inspired ‘Basement Soul’ album (Kindred Spirits). He lands in Australia fresh from a Japanese tour to mark the release of his latest album ‘Hot Water Music’ (Teppen).

But that’s not all….

Original Lioness family ‘Inkswel’ (Rush Hour/Hot Shot) is also on the bill, a DJ that holds the torch for those who cannot be pigeon holed.

A flurry of recent releases has seen the hype for Inkswel rise over the last 12 months. His Cloudeaters EP (Hot Shot) topping both Juno and Rush Hour charts and featured as vinyl release of the week by fact Magazine. This will be Inkswels’ last Sydney date before his upcoming European tour that sees him jumping boarders from London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Moscow and beyond.

Lioness residents Edseven, Henry Compton and Fred Tectonic join the dots and fill in the gaps.

Spirit of House Seminal House Classic: Alison Limerick – Where Love Lives (1991) | (Deep House Sydney, Soulful House Sydney)


Year : 1991.
Label : Arista.

House music that is pure perfection from start to finish, super warm piano and beautiful vocals by Alison Limerick, such a moment in house for us that really doesnt get played in Sydney enough.

Alison T. Limerick (born 1959, StepneyLondonEngland) is a British singer who scored success in the 1990s with the huge club anthem “Where Love Lives“, which was her solo-debut and a #3 hit on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play in 1991

She began her music career as a backing vocalist in the mid-1980s, after attending the London Contemporary School of Dance.[1] Her work appeared on The Style Council‘s 1985 albumOur Favourite Shop.[1] In 1989 she made a brief appearance as an African sorceress in Bob Rafelson‘s film,Mountains of the Moon. She has also contributed to the musical project This Mortal Coil, singing on two of its albums: Filigree & Shadow (1986) andBlood (1991).[1] Another 4AD related contribution found her singing on the Pieter Nooten & Michael Brook album Sleeps with the Fishes (1987) on the song “Equal Ways.” Work with Peter Murphy (1992’s Holy Smoke) followed before Limerick finally made her solo debut the same year, teaming with the house-musicrecord producersDavid Morales and Frankie Knuckles.[1]

Alison Limerick is best known for her 1990s clubanthems, her most successful and best known track being “Where Love Lives,” her only US release, which was originally a club success in 1991, and a UK Singles Chart #9 smash when remixed in 1996.[2] Her 1992 hit “Make it On My Own,” reached #16 in the UKchart. Her own album With a Twist appeared in 1994, plus the 1996 remix collection Club Classics followed, and a year later Limerick returned with “Put Your Faith in Me.”[1][2] “Where Love Lives” has made three separate appearances in the U.S.Hot Dance Club Playchart in 1991 (#3), 1996 (#4) and 2003 (#16).[3] None of her full-length works were released in the US. Alison was the featured vocalist on the 1995 James Taylor Quartet album “In The Hand of The Inevitable”, on the album’s three solo vocal tracks. The tracks included the single “Love Will Keep Us Together” and the album remains the Acid Jazz label’s biggest selling album.

Alison Limerick worked with many famous artists and songwriters such as George MichaelCourtney Pine and Lamont Dozier. In 1993 she sang backing vocals on M People‘s song “Melody of Life” from its album Elegant Slumming. She appears in the British movie Collusion as the jazz singer and she is also notable as one of the (uncredited) singers heard performing the closing title song on each episode of Blackadder the Third.[4]

She now continues to record and sing live, for PA’s and with her own band. She can be heard singing soul/jazz, in various venues across Europe, and found being the Dance Diva in House music venues around the world performing her all-time classics like “Where Love Lives” and “Make it on My Own.”

In 2012, Alison Limerick released two new album projects that are an exclusive digital collection of all her major and independent releases plus a brand-new album.

Optimo are the duo JD Twitch and JG Wilkes. They each have over 20 years DJ-ing experience and in the last decade have become both renowned and highly respected for their memorable and ecstatic deejay sets. Twitch and Wilkes exhibit a unique disregard for genres and musical restrictions in their craft, creating a nightclub experience that strikes out into territories far beyond the accepted boundaries of club music.

The duo are responsible for the nightclub Optimo (Espacio) which ran from November 1997 until April 2010. Optimo sat at the very epicentre of the Scottish Clubbing consciousness in its weekly residency in the Sub Club and is widely regarded as one of the most important and ground-breaking clubs of the past 10 years (at one point earning them the prestigious title of Mixmag “Club of the Year”).
