Hold It Down presents:
Luke Solomon and Chris Duckenfield

Friday 5th April 2013
@The Roadhouse


After inviting Nottingham house legends The Inland Knights to our previous city centre foray, it was always going to be a difficult job to program another Roadhouse party, but we think we’ve done a decent job here with not one, but two of the producers and DJs at the forefront of the underground UK house music scene…

Luke Solomon’s contribution to modern, forward thinking house music has been nothing short of immense. Classic Recordings, the label he runs with Derrick Carter, is up there with the greatest house imprints of all time. As if that wasn’t enough, he also gave us his band, The Freaks, a wealth of amazing solo production work and Music For Freaks, a house based label which has always celebrated an inventive, quirky end of the house spectrum. He is one of the underground’s true heroes, is revered amongst his peers and is guaranteed to put in a sterling set behind the decks. As if anyone needed any confirmation of this man’s credentials, this Hold It Down appearance is sandwiched between gigs at Fabric and Panorama Bar. ‘Nuff said.¬†Chris Duckenfield has been a huge influence on Hold It Down over the years, with his production work as half of legendary production outfit Swag still sounding fresher than most of the house music released today. As a DJ he’s got a great ear for the unique and over the years has played some of the best sets we’ve ever heard.

Luke and Chris are quite simply responsible for some of the best house music to have ever come out of this country. They are incredibly talented, both behind the decks and in the studio, infusing sets and production work with innovation and experimentalism whilst always keeping that all important eye on the dancefloor. We would be more than delighted to welcome just one of them to play at Hold It Down. Quite frankly, it’s a dream come true to have them both on the same night for what will be our best party yet.¬†Hold It Down…
