For their third boat party of this season High Tide have invited along Nick Curly, a major name in the tech house scene. Nick is a German DJ and producer who frequently appears in the highest echelons of Resident Advisor’s annual DJ poll. The chances are that if you’re into your tech house then you will have a pretty good idea who Nick Curly is. He’s had releases on Cocoon Recordings and is closely involved with 8bit Records and Cécille Records. If (like me) you’re not too sure what all that means then just have a listen to any of his recent mixes on that are on SoundCloud, you’ll soon get a feel for what kind of music to expect. Now, take that feeling and transport yourself to a sunny boat deck kitted out with a high-spec sound-system that’s cruising around The Solent. Sounds ideal to me. Also the weather is looking like it’s gonna be great for this bank holiday Sunday so you’ve got no excuses really!
In true High Tide style there will be a whole contingent of resident DJs and friends, spread across two decks, providing the vibes to warm up for Nick’s set. The High Tide boat returns to shore for around 9pm, but do not fear: The party will definitely be continuing. Your boat party ticket grants you entry to both Orange Rooms and POP for the night where more residents and friends will be spinning in preparation for the second headliner. On dry land (presumably in Orange Rooms) High Tide have got hold of Jonny Cade, a DJ and producer that has been receiving a lot of attention this year. He’s put out a couple of records in 2013 and has more on the way. Here’s a recent Rinse FM guest mix to clue you in:
If you wanna grab yourself a ticket then act fast as the boat party has very nearly sold out. There are separate tickets for the after party if you do miss out on the boat. Incidentally, the boat will be setting sail from Ocean Village. All the info you need is on their Facebook event.
