Bluewater

Bluewater will join the fashion crowd to celebrate 10 seasons of On|Off as it announces financial support for the event

On Monday 15th September, On|Off will host the party of London Fashion Week in association with Bluewater.

As well as a fantastic entertainment line-up, the event will play host to a charity auction of exclusive beach huts designed by Jasmine Guinness, Alesha Dixon and Peaches Geldof. The trio teamed up with Bluewater to raise money for their chosen charities by creating beach huts inspired by the hottest trends from the catwalk.

Handbags at dawn are expected as fashionistas start a bidding war to get their hands on the unique huts, which will be auctioned during the event after having been on display at Bluewater over the last month.

Fiona Campbell-Reilly, head of marketing at Bluewater, said of the On|Off partnership: “Bluewater sees the On|Off initiative as a vital platform to help emerging designers break in to the fashion industry. We hope to continue to support such grass-roots projects and make a real difference in the fashion world.”

Bluewater is committed to supporting the On|Off project as well as other fashion forward initiatives so watch this space for more collaborations to come.

DJ78

Using a pair of 1930's HMV wind-up gramophones and a staggering collection of vintage shellac discs, DJ78 provides a unique musical accompaniment to any gathering without compromising the art of conversation (although he has been known to "get amplified" when the circumstances demand it!).

Supremely portable and always dapper in his antique dinner suit, he can operate entirely without the need for electricity, making this an ideal source of atmosphere and entertainment for events both indoor and out.

The records are sourced from his extensive and eclectic collection of 78rpm discs, covering every genre from ragtime, swing, crooners, the golden age of dance bands, right through to hillbilly and the pioneers of rock'n'roll.

Throughout Great Britain, DJ78 has delighted audiences of all ages with his eclectic pre-vinyl playlist of tunes from more than five decades of popular music.

Patrick Wolf

Patrick Wolf is 24 years old and he’s been refining his talents for more than half a lifetime. It all started 12 years ago when Wolf first experimented with car boot sale keyboards and tape recorders and has resulted in one of the most startlingly original and innovative voices now emerging in English pop music.

 The roots of Wolf’s music embrace everything from PJ Harvey to Stockhausen and English folk music to the legendary jazz trumpet player and singer, Chet Baker. All this started, however, with a precocious obsession in early electronic music. Indeed, Wolf was barely into his teens when he built his first Theremin.

By the time he was 14, Wolf was performing with pop-art collective Minty which also features Leigh Bowery in the line-up. He also began writing and recording with an urgency that caught the attention of an independent label called Fat Cat Records who, recognizing Wolf’s extraordinary potential, gave him an Atari computer and a mixing desk, the tools that helped hone Wolf’s unique production and programming. Stumbling across his mother's Joni Mitchell records led to another insight into the art of songwriting.

Wolf left home at the age of 16 and spent the next few years making money from busking in a string quartet and forming a group called Maison Crimineaux, a noisy and rude duo that built its destructive ethics around white noise and pop music. Fate then interceded in Wolf’s life.

Maison Crimineaux were asked to perform in Paris, a show seen by Capitol K, the man who went on to release Wolf’s debut album, ‘Lycanthropy’. The album was a chronicle of Wolf's teenage triumphs and disasters. It was not just the songwriting that set his precocious talents apart - the lush tapestry of sounds were used to astonishing effect, with Wolf’s trademark violin and baritone ukelele joined by an electronic carpet of beats and bleeps.

‘Lycanthropy’ was released on a small independent label in the summer of 2003 and was met with enormous critical acclaim. Wolf was also making guest appearances as a viola player with Chicks on Speed and The Hidden Cameras. The Cologne-based label Tomlab picked up the album for America and Europe, the start of a relationship which was to lead to Wolf’s second album, ‘Wind in the Wires’, released at the start of 2005.

While ‘Lycanthropy’ was being recorded, Wolf took a year to study composition at the Trinity College music conservatoire in London’s Greenwich, the fruits of which can be heard on ‘Wind in the Wires’, an album that received even more applause than his debut recording.

Wolf toured extensively in the UK and throughout Europe, before recording his last album the Magic Postion which was released in February, 2007. Released to great acclaim around the world, the Magic Position allowed Patrick to tour world, playing to rapturous audiences in every major city in the world.
