Sundays At Sub Club...Robert Owens All Night Long
SUNDAY 6TH APRIL 2014
11.00pm - 3.00am
In the wise words of ID Magazine, “If God could sing, he would sound like Robert Owens.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
With more than twenty years as a gifted singer, songwriter, producer and DJ under his belt, Robert has not so much embellished house music as hehas defined it.
Tears, I’ll Be Your Friend and Ordinary People are just some of the tunes that have borne Robert Owens’ black velvet voice and gone on to become truly classic dance records. Like many other great vocalists, Robert Owens began his career singing in church gospel choirs.
Growing up in the less affluent areas of Chicago and L.A., he used music as an escape from his destitute surroundings. Entry into the nascent world of 80s house music came not through Robert’s singing, but rather through his skills as a DJ. By the time people like Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles were designing house music’s blueprint on the dance floors of legendary venues like the Warehouse and the Music Box, Robert was DJ-ing at block parties and smaller clubs in Chicago.
In 1985 Robert met pioneering Chicago producer Larry Heard, who invited him into his studio. Together they formed Fingers Inc with Ron Wilson and released a series of excellent singles such as Mysteries Of Love or the instantly recognizable house standard Can You Feel It.
This is a guy who played PARADISE GARAGE, MUZIC BOX, THE WAREHOUSE, STUDIO 54 and countless other legendary clubs.
Expect a night that takes you from his roots in NYC Disco through to modern House music.
