No Sleep presents Ramadanman @ La Cheetah, 26 Feb

Article by Calum Sutherland | 01 Feb 2011

No sleep promises to be exactly that this month as DJ duo Adam Watt and
Why Eleven welcome Hessle Audio heavyweight Ramadanman down to La
Cheetah. With high profile releases on Soul Jazz, Apple Pips and Aus, David Kennedy has continued to explore the spacious landscape between techno and dubstep with his own inimitable minimal flair since his first 12” Good Feelin/The Woon dropped many moons ago back in 2007. Since hitting us hard with those bass heavy vocal led beasts Ramadanman has gone onto collaborate with Appleblim, formed the hugely influential Hessle label alongside Ben UFO and Pangaea and released a power of quaking productions, culminating in a more experimental self titled EP released early last year.

Given the expansive nature of the music, Kennedy’s tunes are sure to have
reached you at some point having been played out by a host of varied crate diggers and selectors including Ricardo Villalobos, Kode9 and Francois K. A master of understatement but still capable of making your knees careen to the point of inoperability, Ramadanman is a must. Support comes from Darren Quail (a superior local delicacy), and Edinburgh-based next big thing Jacksonville.
