Set to take place on May 6th at Old Fountain Studios, a never-before-used space in the heart of Wembley, the first event will be headlined by Bronx duo, The Martinez Brothers, who will be hosting a huge showcase of key talent from their very own label, Cuttin’ Headz. The Bronx Duo have recently released a new single called ‘Shut The Door‘ on their imprint with fellow Nuyroican and house don Louie Vega.
“We love playing in London, and the music that’s coming out is so creative and diverse. We’ve had some dope UK talent release on Cuttin’ Headz and we were blessed to be able to collaborate with Rudimental on ‘No Fear’. For us, hitting up a new location is pretty much about celebrating that culture and connecting with a wider audience,” say the duo.
Joining them will be Arkityp, the blistering duo made up of Archie Hamilton and Rossko. Plus, Argy and Matt Tolfrey.
The second event will see one of techno’s biggest superstars, Paul Kalkbrenner, bringing the UK launch of his 8th studio album ‘Parts Of Life‘ to the new LWE’s location on May 10th.
Announced last month, the new 15-track set follows Paul’s ‘Back To The Future‘ trilogy, chronicling the arrival of techno in Berlin in the late 80s.
“After a few great shows with Will & the LWE Crew, I am very excited to go back and be able to present my new album & new live show in this new & outstanding venue,” he says.

Loz Poulton (LWE – Head Of Production) states that new space “opens up a great platform for production. With its previous life as a TV & Film studios it has a range of rigging capabilities where I can fix a substantial L’Acoustics sound system over the dancefloor. We’ll also be flying trussing with a complex tessellating lighting design, which I’m super excited about; and not to mention the installation of over 85 lasers.”
