    Nothing But Thieves @ The Rocking Chair

    Thu 04 September at 08:00pm until Thu 04 September 2014 at 11:30pm

    In an era where tracks are produced by committee and honed by focus groups, NOTHING BUT THIEVES are a rare beast indeed – a band with the talent, integrity and vision to create heartbreakingly beautiful music entirely on their own terms. NOTHING BUT THIEVES’ origins lie in schoolmates Conor (vocals), Joe (guitar) and Dave’s (drums) efforts in a variety of bands in their hometown of Southend, Essex. Inspired by artists as diverse as Ray Charles and Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire, they gained valuable experience on the local live circuit, even if they weren’t going to change the world. Then Dom joined their school in the sixth form and everything went up a notch. A classically trained guitarist from the age of six, Dom brought a musicality and learning to the table which made everyone sit up and take notice. Not that this puts him on a pedestal with his band mates. They all agree that it’s the mix of his formal training with Joe’s self-taught chops which lies at the heart of the NOTHING BUT THIEVES sound.

Funded by the evil record companies, his mission is to deliver a gruesome alternative to paying musicians their fair share. He hunts down the remains of dead musicians, clones them and then feeds them to specially selected zombies. The result is that the zombies instantly learn their music... Support comes from heavy punk rockers Das Chip Shop and Pummel und der Schaffters. Expect blood pies and muchos messiness.

    Goldray - Cancelled

    Thu 11 September at 07:00pm until Thu 11 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    Remember Kenwyn House? The guitarist from Reef? Well, he decided to take his hands off whatever they were on and left the riff-driven alt-rock world of Reef to explore musical pastures new. And we sure are glad he did. For the last few years, Kenwyn has been busy creating psych rock four piece, Goldray. Classic Rock Magazine said of Goldray, ‘Pitch together the moodiness of The Doors, the grooviness of Cream and the trippiness of early Floyd and you get this splendid prog ‘n’ psych magical carpet ride’. High praise indeed. Goldray have both feet firmly planted in the psych rock tradition of the late 60s and early 70s and after a successful mini-album release in January of this year (which yielded amazing reviews), the band are now preparing for a full album release. So get yourself down to Plug to drink in Goldray’s sensual, psychedelic aromas and bone-rattling guitar riffs.

    Sat 13 September at 07:00pm until Sat 13 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    Emotionally driven, anthemic folk-rock with a strong Americana core? Do tell... They've come a long way since forming in Leeds back in 2009 and with a coveted supporting slot and subsequent comparisons to folk leviathans Mumford and Sons, The Dunwells are definitely more than worthy of a look and a listen. The last two years have seen them honing their live performance skills to perfection at some huge festivals including SXSW, Lollapalooza and The Great Escape to name but a few and 2014 will see the greatly anticipated release of their second studio album.

    Cup of tea, Cate? Cate le Bon is so fond of the nation’s favourite drink that she chose to name her latest album Mug Museum. And when she’s not drinking tea, she writes and performs songs of psychedelic folk majesty. As an artist, Cate has been described as Nico-esque and her live performances are a thing of intense beauty. Beneath her icy cool demeanour bubbles a menacing energy. Her voice possesses a curious and diverse quality, which can be shy and folksy in one breath and a high soprano in the next. Prepare to be utterly enthralled.

    I Set The Sea On Fire, Ish Brother & Guests

    Sat 20 September at 07:00pm until Sat 20 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    The 5 piece outfit from Sheffield, I Set The Sea On Fire are a prominent band in the South-Yorkshire music scene with a key to writing catchy, sing-along but all together beautiful songs. When this is backed up by an award winning live show, its no wonder the band have received airplay on national radio, as well as covering local awards including Best Band of 2013 & Best EP. Ish Brother Bio : Ish-Brother are an upbeat indie 5 piece from Sheffield. We formed during our early secondary school years 2011-ish and began practicing as a four piece, we then acquired our fifth member, our trumpet player Barney, and began properly writing songs. We started gigging in late 2012/early 2013 and since then have played at many venues around Sheffield, recently releasing our debut, self-titled EP (available on Itunes) . We hope to be in the studio again in the near future and are always up for gigging.

    Plug and Tiny Teeth present Dan Owen

    Mon 29 September at 07:30pm until Mon 29 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    To look at him, Dan Owen (aka Blues Boy Dan) is a fairly typical twenty one year old with a penchant for the blues. But when you hear him sing, you’re transported into the Mississippi Delta, and Dan isn’t Dan anymore, he’s a no good, god-forsaken, eighty year old blues man, howling at the devil on his back porch. This blues boy is one of the most sought-after young blues players in the world and it’s not hard to see why. Following one gig, he posted a video of his performance of The Ballad of Hollis Brown on YouTube and attracted the attention of a certain Mick Fleetwood (yes, of the Mac variety), who subsequently tracked Dan down and became his mentor. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, dreams do come true. So get down to The Greystones and prepare to have your mind blown.

    Wed 01 October at 07:30pm until Wed 01 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    Hailing from the wilderness of Caithness in Scotland, Neon Waltz are a six piece psychedelic indie rock band. Within a relatively short space of time they have become fine purveyors of melodic, sun-drenched, sonic soundscapes. Music for all seasons. Neon Waltz’s songs feel instantly memorable and catchy, and the addition of an electric organ gives their tunes slightly Doors-y undertones. They manage to effortlessly maintain a lovely balance between lively pop and wistfulness, with slow tempo tracks breaking out into feverish jams. They were recently named as NME’s Buzz Band of the Week, when the mag proclaimed them as, ‘The most promising British band we’ve heard this year’. High praise indeed.

    Ella Eyre

    Thu 09 October at 07:00pm until Thu 09 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    With her magnificent mane of leonine hair, ferocious powerhouse soul vocal and impressively energetic live show, Ella Eyre has become an unstoppable force within British music. Since proving herself to be one of the UK’s most enthralling and captivating debut female singers, Ella has been wowing the crowds throughout the UK having sold out a headline tour as well as performing prolific slots at this summer’s festivals. Now the BRIT award winner announces a twelve date headline tour this October giving fans an opportunity to hear the voice of 2014 up close. Since signing to Virgin EMI two years ago, Ella has featured on chart-topping band Bastille’s cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs” classic, “No Angels”, which shot straight to the top of the Hypemachine chart. Shortly after, casual songwriting sessions with then unknowns Rudimental and Naughty Boy evolved into Ella being involved in a No.1 and No.2 album respectively with “Home” and “Hotel Cabana”. Her single with Rudimental, “Waiting All Night” was one of 2013’s biggest hits, and she spent much of last year on tour with Plan B, Rudimental and Bastille, playing at sold-out shows across the globe. Now focusing on her own live performance, Eyre’s own stage show has evolved into its own particular dynamic; known for her catsuits, bright lipstick and of course huge hair, Eyre is a dynamo onstage, offering one of the most exhilarating live performances seen in years.

    Cult favourites. Cast your mind back to 1993, when Jurassic Park was busy terrifying small children and Whitney was riding high at the top of the charts with some old country tune. It was during this time that a little instrumental, stripped-down dub dance group called Dreadzone were in their infancy. Now, 21 years on, that little dub dance group have got 9 studio albums and 2 live albums under their belts and they’re still going strong. Constantly striving to remain relevant by writing fresh, innovative material has led to a slew of hit records, massive critical acclaim and a huge, devoted fanbase. These guys pretty much wrote the book on spanning genres and their music is a bubbling pot of reggae, techno, folk, dance and rock, all mixed up in a big dub cauldron. Even though they’re 21 years into their career as a band they feel they still have something to say musically and lyrically and we certainly agree with that.

    Ohm Sweet Ohm w/ Special Request, Trikk & Squarehead

    Sat 11 October at 11:00pm until Sun 12 October 2014 at 06:00am

    For our first Ohm of Autumn following on from our free summer knees up with Mosca and South London Ordnance we bring you a lineup we have been eager to share for some time! Having entrusted the likes of Paul Woolford under his UK pirate radio influenced alias of Special Request, and Man Make Music/Pets Recordings rising star Trikk; we’re starting things as we mean to go on with our first event, with our much loved resident Squarehead playing in tow to keep things running accordingly. SPECIAL REQUEST First up, we’re pleased to announce that we have none other than Special Request aka Paul Woolford headlining this bill. A man who should need no introduction - he’s steadily been building a reputation for himself over the course of his career as a producer with amazing versatility. Perhaps best known in recent times to us as the guy behind the song of summer 2013 - ‘Untitled’ as well as his mind bending all time electronic classic 'Erotic Discourse'; over the years he’s compiled tracks for esteemed Techno led label outlets such as Planet E and Hotflush, whilst using his Special Request moniker to harness an altogether different sound which harks back to the hardcore and jungle days of the 1990s. With this in mind, we feel more than honoured to be the ones hosting his full Special Request Sheffield debut for you all… TRIKK Joining Mr Woolford will be Bruno Deodato aka Trikk, another major talent we’ve been keeping an eye on for some time and one who is bound to keep you all on your feet. Hailing from Portugal, (and its most musically buzzing city of Oporto at that), we’re excited to present the Hotflush/Pets/Man Make Music signee to you for his first show in the Steel City. With a string of releases, remixes and one praised Boiler Room set under his belt; he’s gone from strength to strength over the past year, and it’s going to be a privilege having him play for us. SQUAREHEAD Finally, to round things off, it wouldn't be right if we didn't have our Steel City homegrown talent to complete an Ohm line-up, and this week is local 4 to the floor heart throb Squarehead - whose 2014 has confirmed he’s destined for great things. Feeling fresh (we hope) from playing at Zoo Project this September alongside fellow Ohm resident Pedram, we’re looking forward to much of the same from Oliver; namely, his trademark booty rippling sets, full of electronic dance floor slaying rhythms to warm things up nicely before Trikk and Special Request take to the decks.

    The Amazing Snakeheads

    Tue 14 October at 07:30pm until Tue 14 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    In a world of tepid high street indie, The Amazing Snakeheads are a band for the dark alleys. They never really formed as such, as their conception was seemingly more preordained than planned. Hailing from Glasgow, The Amazing Snakeheads are a force of nature. Frontman Dale Barclay appears to be possessed by music, with rock ‘n’ roll channelled through every sinew of his body. The band’s brutalist rock ‘n’ roll seems to teeter on a knife-edge between palpable menace and outright violence, an intimidatory experience akin to walking into the wrong pub in the wrong place at the wrong time. They’ve recently supported Jack White and played a headline slot on the BBC Introducing Stage at T in the Park, so if you’re into raucous rock and garage blues, get down to Plug.

    The four members of Glass Animals have known each other since the age of fourteen, but they only started making music together after they finished school and Dave Bayley showed the other members the music he made and asked them to be in a band. After the release of the EP Leaflings they decided to take it slow and focus on their university degree for a year. In 2013 they came in contact with Paul Epworth, an English music producer, and they signed with his label Wolf Tone. After 2 EPs, 3 singles.

    In case you haven’t heard of him already, Maverick Sabre is an Irish-English singer-songwriter and soul rapper. Cast your mind back a couple of years and you may remember him from his cameo on Professor Green’s Jungle? Known for his eerie vocals and guitar playing, his voice has a gritty soulfulness to it. Whether he is blasting out horn-fuelled Motown grooves or reggae-infused ballads, Maverick Sabre delivers his music with an untrammelled intensity. Frequent appearances on the likes of Radio 1, Capital and at Glastonbury have led him to build up a solid fanbase. Maverick Sabre’s voice is so strangely unique that it gives a new take on soul which could seal his future in music for years to come.

    Not often do you get to have a choice of 4 DJs on a Saturday night of the calibre as the ones we have booked for prices that are an absolute steal, and in these hard times you can’t say fairer than that. GEORGE FITZGERALD Travelling from the ubiquitous techno territory that is Berlin, George Fitzgerald will be returning back to Ohm. His unique production style, which incorporates sultry house tones, dark rolling basslines and everything in between, has secured him releases on Hotflush and Aus Music and made him a household name in the world of electronic music. During his time away from Ohm George has been busy curating his ManMakeMusic label and working on his debut album, due out on Domino Records in 2015. At the start of 2014, he was also entrusted as a Radio 1 resident, where he was able to show off his talent for finding and blending a cutting edge selection of house and techno, that has seen him captivate dance floors from Berlin to New York. Last time George graced our booth in November 2013 standards were held high by digging deep into his arsenal of techno and house, with a generous dollop of his own productions thrown in for good measure. He also dazzled us with his exquisite taste in shirts, and we expect no less this time around! Laszlo Dancehall - Plimton (George FitzGerald Remix) SHENODA George will be joined by another past Ohm guest, Hypercolour and ManMakeMusic label mate Shenoda, who specialises in a forward thinking blend of garage drum patterns, house grooves and soulful, creatively arranged vocals. Shenoda is a seasoned producer, having had a steady stream of releases since 2006, but has been making waves in the past couple of years in particular. His 2013 ‘Chatsworth Sound’ EP collaboration with Huxley garnered a lot of attention, and his recent track ‘Leslie Crowther’ was supported as a Boiler Room Debut. A Shenoda set consists of interesting yet faultless mixing of a huge variety of sounds. He spun the Boiler Room crowd senseless when he passed through so we can’t wait to have him unleash his musical skill upon us again. Shenoda’s New EP ‘Who Ver’ DOC DANEEKA Next up we have the Welsh Ten Thousand Yen Label Boss Doc Daneeka returning to Sheffield after a few years absence. DD has an impressive string of releases under his belt going all the way back to 2010, but he has seen his career status skyrocket in the past year, with Numbers Release ‘Walk on In’ which was heralded as one of XLR8R’s top tracks of 2013. His sets are commonly in the same vein as this track, and pay lots of attention to edgy yet still soulful side of house music, with plenty of genre splicing surprises thrown in. Doc Daneeka’s ‘Paname (Piano Vers)’ PEDRAM And finally, Sheffield-through-and-through Ohm resident Pedram will be completing the lineup, fresh from his festival season travels around the country with his Born Electric counterparts. He is a DJ with impeccable standards who has perfected his craft and musical knowledge over the years, so he is sure to provide an array of organic house gems as well as left field nuggets of electronic goodness to whet your appetite for the rest of the night. ‘Nina’ from Pedram’s Born Electric debut EP With such a good value for a lineup of this caliber we recommend you get tickets well in advance for this one! 1st release tickets £8 2nd release £10 Final release £12

    Fri 31 October at 07:00pm until Fri 31 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    Indiana the girl, not the state. Indiana’s music is testament to a flourishing new front for pop music. There is a growing rejection of the excessive electro hooks, novelty gimmicks and hyper-sexualisation that have become the pillars of mainstream pop. This rebuff favours a more minimal and musical approach. Indiana thrives on removing the over-synthesised fanfare of commercial pop, and reducing it to the most subtle and precious elements. This is pure, intellectual and cinematic pop music, with a clear aim and a deft execution. Her live performances are nothing short of mesmerising and her pristine, beautiful voice has a haunting, arresting quality that draws you in. Captivating.

    Kate Tempest started out as a rapper, and remains one. She earned her stripes in south London's battle scene and the now legendary Deal Real and Speakers Corner ciphers. For over a decade Tempest has been devoted to her craft, writing and performing continuously, whether rapping acappella at punk raves, or rapping with a DJ at an open mic or rapping with a band on tours across the UK, she has been committed to music since the minute she started. In recent years, she has found most success as a poet and a playwright, no mean feat considering it all began with a love of beats and rhymes and good rap lyrics that told stories.

    As our past line-ups have proved; house and techno can sit perfectly together side by side, and the 8th of November will be no exception as we offer you a night in with the star pupils of the Hotflush class of 2013, Dense & Pika, and local Yorkshire analogue genius James Welsh, who boasts an illustrious musical career which has come to be defined by several signature releases from recent years. If that wasn ́t enough already, we ́ve also called in our highly prized resident Squarehead for more of his ́trademark booty rippling ́ sets to spice things up a bit. Dense & Pika Fresh faced and rearing to go after their hectic summer of festival hopping, we ́re thrilled to bring you Chris Spero aka Glimpse, and Hypercolour co-head Alex Jones, under their forward thinking techno guise of Dense & Pika. Despite their collaborations as Dense & Pika stretching as far back as 2011, it ́s only been in the past year that the pair have seen their productions receive the attention they deserve thanks to a signing with Hotflush Recordings; a label run by past Ohm guest & fellow modern techno connoisseur Scuba. With 2013s synonymous tracks such as ́Colt ́ and ́Move Your Body Back ́ to their name and their recent monster of a remix of the Paul Woolford classic ''Erotic Discourse'', we ́re looking forward to providing a platform for this super talented duo and their sounds. James Welsh To accompany Dense & Pika we ́ve reeled in a producer from closer to home who joins Alex Jones in being a Hypercolour affiliate as well with an extensive range of other labels such as Wolf Music, Futureboogie and Shabby Doll Records. A fully certified DJ and producer whose career as part of Ocelot has seen him signed to the definitive Wall of Sound label and has taken him to places such as the main stage at Creamfields, Fabric, oh and not to mention countless Miami rooftop parties... we ́re quite sure we ́re leaving the task of delivering a silky smooth house set with unexpected surprises galore in capable hands. Following the release of his latest “weighty techno house” EP Gentinetta, on the Dense & Pika led label of Kneaded Pains - it ́s a pleasure to welcome James Welsh to Ohm. Squarehead Last but by no means least, we ́re revved up to see our highly trusted resident and extremely talented Steel City export Squarehead grace the decks with his presence once again. Armed with the most sought after record collection - a set from Squarehead is never a dull affair.

    ‘We’ll be fine handling fame. We’re already massive rock stars in our heads. Only our circumstances will change and we’ll be able to go out more often’. Not my words, the words of Luke Spiller, flamboyant lead singer of The Struts. He is what would materialise if the glamorous eighties and the grungy nineties had a love child (see photo above). The Struts are a rock ‘n’ roll band that ooze charisma and style, with an aesthetic that makes their female fans swoon. And the rest of the band is just as magnetic as their front man, a rare feat for any band. But not only do they have the looks, they also have the tunes. Their songs are high octane, infectious and unforgettable. ‘It Could’ve Been Me’ is an unapologetic sing-along anthem, while ‘I Just Know’ sounds like a revitalised Axl Rose penning a new ‘Brown Sugar’. Come down to Plug and see what all the fuss is about. I guarantee it’ll be a foot stomping extravaganza.

    Ohm Sweet Ohm presents... FeelMyBicep x AUS Music w/ Bicep, Leon Vynehall, Will Saul & Pedram

    Sat 22 November at 11:00pm until Sun 23 November 2014 at 06:00am

    For our second November party, we have a line-up we have worked very hard to present to you. Co-curated with two of the UK's biggest electronic music institutions, we are extremely proud to give you, Ohm Sweet Ohm presents... FeelMyBicep Vs Aus Records. BICEP First up, we have Belfast born two-piece, Bicep, flexing their musical muscles. Bicep have amassed a ridiculously versatile portfolio of tunes, influenced by many of the best moments in the history of house music. They take a creative, genre-bending approach to production, and embrace elements of house, techno, disco, italo, breakbeat (and everything in between) to create their signature sound: intergalactic 80s-warehouse-inspired, yet undeniably forward thinking analog house music. The boys know their favourite genres inside out, and run their successful blog ‘’ which is a treasure trove of off-the-beaten-track Chicago house, disco, funk and Detroit techno. Therefore, on attending a Bicep set, you will be treated to some unexpected gems that are likely to become your new favourites. For the past two summers, the duo have occupied a residency at the iconic Space club in Ibiza, whilst simultaneously running their ‘Feel My Bicep Presents’ nights and playing their ‘All Night Long’ 5 hour sets at various other nights… they can command a dance floor and deliver a party that you won't forget in a hurry. LEON VYNEHALL Joining Bicep, we have Brighton native Leon Vynehall. Vynehall has been commended for his attention to detail and craftsmanship when it comes to producing house music, creating atmospheric and emotive tracks that take cues from disco, funk and soul. Despite making his debut release just two years ago, he has secured releases on many high quality labels such as Will Saul's ‘Aus Music’ and Martyn's ‘3024’. This year, Vynehall has also received praise for the more club-ready house and techno bangers he has worked on under the Laszlo Dancehall alias, comprised of himself and Christian Piers. Vynehall specialises in seamlessly mixed house and techno sets with his own signature stamp - an emphasis on tracks filled with atmosphere and emotion to balance out the more club focused tracks. His spot as a resident DJ for Brighton night Aka Aka Roar helped hone his mastery of the dance floor, and now Vynehall regularly plays acclaimed sets across the highest calibre of clubs from Berghain in Berlin to Razzmataz in Barcelona. By the time Vynehall appears at Ohm his mixing talents will also have ferried him across the pond, as he is about to embark on his first tour of the US and Canada. WILL SAUL Rounding off our special guests for the night, we welcome back one of our favourite producers, DJs and record label owners - Will Saul. For those that were present when Saul brought his Aus Records party to Ohm in March along with Dusky, you'll remember what great taste the man has for music made for the dance floor but is enriching for the soul (could have made a pun there but had to restrain myself). Saul is a renowned DJ and producer with over a decade of releases under his belt and also captains explorative label Aus Music. Aus is a label with a strong catalogue of releases spanning many genres, providing a home for tracks from Sideshow, Joy Orbison, Ramadanman, Deetron, Martyn and many more. Prior to Aus, Saul ran Simple Records, named after a simple requirement to put out good music- no matter the genre, early evidence of his music-mindedness and strong creative vision. His impeccably made, versatile productions are definitely at the deeper end of the dance floor spectrum, containing delectable, complex melodies which draw upon elements of dubstep, disco, house and techno. When it comes to mixing, Saul is heralded for being able to effortlessly and entertainingly fuse dance-inducing tracks of all tempos. He was a resident at London’s legendary End club alongside a string of now world famous DJs, helping to shape these skills. He shows his enduring support and belief in his own artists by playing many Aus material in sets, which is complemented by his own tracks and exclusive tracks from a close network of talented producer friends. Recently, Saul was asked to mix the latest instalment of !K7's prestigious DJ KICKS series, a testament to his djing talent. PEDRAM Last but not least, we have our resident and Ohm Sweet Ohm creator, Pedram. He has built up an extensive knowledge of electronic music over the years, so he is well equipped to set up the Ohm crowd up with one of his trademark warm up sets incorporating underground house, leftfield electronica and everything in between. Pedram is also a talented producer, having attracted the attention of James Zabiela for some time, who released Pedram’s debut EP on his label Born Electric earlier this year which received huge praise from the likes of Midland, Dusky, Tensnake and Martyn. In between throwing parties and touring the UK, usually with the Born Electric gang, Pedram is working on more material to follow the extremely well-received Nina/Immaturity EP.

    Catfish and the Bottlemen

    Tue 02 December at 07:30pm until Tue 02 December 2014 at 10:30pm

    Loud. Explosive. Sexy. Rock and roll. Need I say more? Catfish and the Bottlemen are arguably one of the most hardworking indie guitar bands on the scene at the moment, having racked up over one hundred gigs in the UK and Europe last year. Good lord! They’ve garnered the support of some pretty famous fans along the way too, including Carl Barat, The Vaccines and Lauren Laverne, due in no small part to the fact that their live performances have been honed to perfection. Their catchy and energetic tunes can’t fail to get you dancing and their stage presence is quite simply astounding. Lead singer and main penner of tunes Van describes his songwriting style as ‘hellacious’. We don’t know what it means either but it sounds good. Get thee sen darn.
