Freeze release Bombed Out Church Phase 1 with Bonobo, Jamie XX, Todd Terje, John Talabot, Greg Wilson plus many more

Liverpool’s iconic club night, Freeze, will celebrate its tenth anniversary throughout 2015, and has just announced its first run of shows taking place at one of the city’s most spectacular venues, The Bombed Out Church.

Freeze has grown in tandem with the city’s continued resurgence, charting their unique course across the vibrant electronic music spectrum. With its DNA all about seeking the region’s most intimate, quirky and stunning venues – including everywhere from the Anglican Cathedral and St George’s Hall to tunnels and warehouses – 2015 sees the party entering a truly exciting phase, approaching a forward-thinking and taste-making artist policy whilst still retaining the foundations upon which it is built. The second half of the shows to be revealed soon will take Freeze further into a more underground-edge.

Over the first May Bank Holiday on Sunday 3rd, the seminal producer Bonobo opens up Freeze’s 10th anniversary season. His The North Borders album is a brilliantly melodic, downtempo and mesmerising piece of genre-crossing work from the Ninja Tune stable. Bonobo’s DJ set will showcase his vast range of influences and inspirations to incredible effect; perfectly suited to the Bombed Out Church’s hallowed open-air environment, he also brings his incredible live production which will further enhance this very special show. Bonobo is joined by Gilles Peterson, one of the UK’s most dedicated DJs, broadcasters, producers, compilers, record label boss and an avid record collector. Joining the dots between soul, hip-hop, house, Afro, Latin, electronica, jazz and more in his search for the perfect beat – and with his own Worldwide Festival and awards show –  Gilles’ travels around continue to enrich and expand his vast record collection to create real musical journeys and makes a very welcome return to the city.

Then on Saturday 23rd May, the seminal Young Turks label brings a sublime showcase Liverpool. The prolific and enigmatic producer and remixer Jamie XX headlines, one third of the brilliant XX and one of the UK’s most creative forces as a solo artist. With his immense body of work including everything from curating film soundtracks to creating ballet scores, to hosting shows on 6 Music, he remains a captivating DJ who brings a whole new dimension to Freeze. The sublime Spanish DJ John Talabot joining him, plus Italian synthesist Lorenzo Senni (live), Bristolian beats maker Kotown and a special guest to be announced. The following day on Sunday 24th May stars delectable disco trio Crazy P playing live, with more special guests to be revealed across this double show Bank Holiday weekend.

The fourth party of the opening 10th anniversary series brings together four iconic names on Saturday June 13th. Todd Terje, fresh from the success of last year’s acclaimed It’s Album Time, has specially curated this show. Given the rare times Todd performs live in the UK, this will be a brilliant party showcasing not only his live skills but the people he has handpicking to join him: Greg Wilson, Gerd Janson and Prins Thomas form a quartet of irrepressible talent across the house, disco and electronica spectrum for what is already shaping up to be one of the parties of the summer.

There is also a very special brand new collaboration to be revealed soon, further consolidating Freeze’s standing as one of the UK’s most enduring club nights.

And a special one-off, on Saturday March 14th Freeze return to where it began for them, at The Lemon Lounge, with special guests Danny Howells and Paolo Mojo.
