Lush! goes Elektrik...

LUSH! goes electric this Saturday night.
Or, to be precise, the venue will become an ‘Elektrik Playground"!

The genre bending Electrik Playground returns to the UK for the first event after a sell out season with Tiesto at the world’s biggest club, Privilege in Ibiza.

And that means that Riley and Durrant will be thrashing out a three hour set together with Carl Bryant and resident DJ Col Hamilton.

Few DJs and producers can claim as much diversity as Nick Riley and Andi Durrant. Their debut artist album “Research & Development” was released last summer, hitting the iTunes top 50 in the first month of sales, and receiving great critical acclaim for its unique genre-bending sound.

With support for their music coming from DJs as wide-ranging as Pete Tong to Armin Van Buuren and their tracks and remixes on record labels as far apart as trance imprints Black Hole and Maelstrom to house stalwarts CR2, Positiva and Data, the pair are one of the UKs most exciting electronic exports.

This year Andi was also awarded his second prestigious Sony Award, beating competition from Radio 1 and joining the ranks of previous winners Zane Lowe and Colin Murray as Music Broadcaster of the Year.

Riley & Durrant’s famed club night, Electrik Playground (run with Adam Sheridan) has taken the north of England by storm, and is now one of the most consistently packed-out nights at Leed’s finest venue Mission.

The Electrik Playground has just returned after a sell-out summer partnering Tiesto and hosting the infamous CocoLoco room at Privilege in Ibiza.

Last year Andi and Nick toured across Russia and the Far East, finishing off 2007 with a huge Riley & Durrant Soundsystem gig to 4,000 people on a beach in Malaysia.

Don’t miss their eagerly awaited appearance at Lush! this Saturday night...
