Bread & Butter celebrate their 4th Birthday with 2 special guests and 6AM late license! For this special appointment we are happy to announce Watergate's LEE JONES from Berlin plus the eclectic duo ITALOBOYZ (Moon Horbour // Get Physical).
Lee grew up in Essex, England, but can almost call himself a Berliner now, having moved there from London 8 years ago, the very same week the Watergate club opened. During the late 90's, producing and performing as Hefner, he became involved with the post-drum and bass, downbeat, lounge sound of the time, remixing the likes of 4Hero, Cinematic Orchestra and Lamb, and releasing the album Residue in 2000.
He moved to Germany in 2002 inspired by the new soundtrack he discovered during long Kreuzberg nights, that he finally traded his jazz chords for dancing shoes, and with MyMy began to explore the world of house and techno.
Together with Panorama Bar resident Nick Höppner, they toured in a total of 27 countries and appeared on labels such as Ostgut Ton, Circus Company and Playhouse, where they released the album Songs for the Gentle in 2006. In 2010, after 5 years together, MyMy decided to go their own ways and to stop their monthly parties at Watergate where Lee had developed his skills as a DJ. He would now focus on establishing himself as a solo DJ and Producer, and one of Watergate's main residents.
Having played keyboards, guitar and bass since he was young, Lee is always searching for musicality in his sound. His approach in the studio comes from his love of song writing and composition, influenced by classical music, jazz and film soundtracks. For some time his solo releases and remixes have been popping up on labels such as Aus Music, Ostgut Ton, Liebe*Detail and Cityfox, and in 2008 he released his debut LP "Electronic Frank" on Aus Music. In 2010 Lee will do his first ever mix CD for the world famous Watergate Club.
Italoboyz (aka Marco Donato and Federico Marton) have become an essential fixture of the european’s electronic scene. From their notorious back-to-back DJ sets their reputation has grown to the point where they can now be found playing regularly across Europe and the rest of the UK. However, it’s not just the energy and flair of their DJ sets that has captured the imagination, Italoboyz releases on some of today’s most influential minimal-house / techno labels like Get Physical, Moon Harbour, Treibstoff, Einmaleins Musik and Safari Electronique.
Although their sound has always been characterized by organic elements along with large doses of funk and energy, the distinctive flavour of their productions and DJ sets is down to a willingness to embrace and explore the various genres and sub-genres that develop out of this constantly evolving music. One of the reasons Italoboyz productions are so well received is the fact that their musical expression is a fusion of sounds, themes and ideas resulting from over 15 years DJing experience. Their aim is to deliver the most modern, cutting edge sound possible but it should still resonate through time, both past and future, in order to make the immediate experience all the more seductive.
