Movement: Erol Alkan
Presented by Movement
About this event
Movement is a new club night curated by Matt Walsh at Faith In Strangers, exploring off-kilter electronic house and techno music.We are very excited to welcome Erol Alkan as our first guest and perfect DJ to set a precedent for Movement.
Erol is someone who is not susceptible to cliches, but amid a life devoted to alternative and electronic music culture, one just might be true; he is an artist who needs no introduction. Alkan’s creative life as a DJ, producer, label owner, radio host and collaborator has spanned decades. His exhaustive history reads almost like mythology; the shy boy who snuck out of his bedroom window to play indie records to ruthlessly unforgiving crowds, and ended up transforming the London club scene, bridging disparate scenes with experimentation and abandon.
Since relocating to Margate in 2015, Matt Walsh has been busy resurrecting The Tap Room in Cliftonville, which has transformed one of Margate’s secret spots into a booming small bar, where you can expect to see local and travelling DJs playing underground music every week.
“Movement” is the next chapter, taking his brand to the dancefloor, alongside DJ friends from around the globe. Each party will start with Matt, followed by a headliner.
Matt began to develop his trademark sound of modern disco-infused electronic house and techno in 2005, when an offer of a residency at East London’s seminal T‑Bar club set off a chain of events that would lead to him touring the globe.Turbo Recordings don Tiga spotted him there in 2007. He then became a long term resident of Bugged Out! and Turbo, before setting up his own label, Clouded Vision Recordings in 2010. Two mixed compilations later and over 30 releases, Matt had found himself in the booths of nightclubs all across the world.Prepare to lose yourself on the darkened dance floor, as Matt and his handpicked artists take you on a journey through a universe of beats, synths, and acidic sounds. “Movement” is not just a club night; it’s a destination for those who live and breathe electronic music.
