The Spice Cellar will celebrate its second birthday on Thursday November 21 with a headline set from Detroit luminary Carl Craig.
The man behind Planet E Records, Craig has remixed the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Australia’sownCut Copyand Theo Parrish, with Craig’s rework of ‘Falling Up’ surely among the best reworks of the past ten years. Like any techno producers worth his salt, the Detroit kingpin has released material under an array of different aliases. Craig’s approved ‘nom de booms’ include early pseudonymBFC, the jazz-indebted Innerzone Orchestra, his more laid-back Fat Freddy’s Drop moniker – just kidding – his experimental ‘69’ project and of course Paperclip People, responsible for classics such as ‘Throw’. The Spice Cellar’s second birthday will be a themed ‘Harajuku Neon’, with a ‘no effort, no entry’ door policy. The big question is, will Craig himself turn up as a Harajuku school girl?
Doors open 11pm, with first release $25 tickets available online.
