do we have one of these already? anyway, this is where we plan future dancing things. what's coming up? i only know about get physical at fabric in april. i'm really quite tempted by miss kittin and michael mayer at plastic people this thursday, too:

http://www.plasticpeople.co.uk/one-offs.shtml

i really shouldn't go because i have to lecture in the morning, but...

toby (tsg20), Tuesday, 15 February 2005 23:00 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

That looks good, but I have to go to Maidenhead on Friday. Bugger.

Other things coming up:

4 March: Run The Road night at Fabric
12 March: Tiefschwarz and Alter Ego at The Key

RickyT (RickyT), Tuesday, 15 February 2005 23:57 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

ooh this thread is a good idea. I only found out about Miss Kittin yesterday, it looks ace but I'm already booked up.

What Ricky said, plus MIA and Roots Manuva are playing Brixton Academy on March 4 as well so it could well be the best night ever.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 00:03 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

12 march looks fantastic. is there some deal that means that ivan smagghe and tiefschwarz have to clash? he's playing favric that night. but i'd rather go to the key.

villalobos at fabric this saturday will be good (well, the last couple of hours of his set were amazing last time, anyway) but i'm giving it a miss as there's no-one else playing that i'm keen to see.

toby (tsg20), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 08:52 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Get Physical in April is Ronanfest, right? I'm up for that and Tiefschwarz/Alter Ego looks fantastic. Where is the Key anyway?

I can't do the 4th, although MIA + Manuva + whoever they wheel out for Run The Road (almost certainly Kano I'd imagine) would be a pretty awesome run.

I am too much of a wuss to cope with proper clubbing on a school night, sadly, so this Thursday is out for me.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 09:41 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Get Physical is a certainty for me. Something finally clicked about the M.A.N.D.Y mix two weeks ago and I haven't been able to stop playing it since.

RickyT (RickyT), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 09:48 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Actually its just occurred to me I could probably make the Academy on the 4th as the party I'm going to won't get going until at least midnight anyway.

I still haven't been able to get into Get Physical properly bar the odd tune or two, but hopefully a night actually dancing to the stuff will sort that out.

Argh Toby, are you aware how much poorer and more exhausted this thread is going to make me in the coming months?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 09:49 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Matt, the Key is somewhere in the King's Cross area. I've never been, it'll be an adventure.

what date in April is Get Physical?

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 10:25 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

So what kind of music do these "dancing venues" play?

I have this awful problem in that I love to dance, but can't really dance to Dance Music.

Kate Kept Me Alive! (kate), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 10:56 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

get physical is april 16th, i believe. has it actually been confirmed yet?

indie dancing can be planned here, too!

toby (tsg20), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 10:59 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

april 16, cool.

any sort of dancing! I mean I would love to find a decent R&B night in London, and people to go with.

also for gay dancing I'll be at GAY this Saturday for the Girls Aloud appearance.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:10 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i have to go to 333 on friday for one of the ratpure. i think the idjut boys are playing as well.

the key is in weird railyard no-man's-land around the station, the kind of area in which you're supposed to walk in groups.

xpost - yes, i'd love some r&b dancing. whatever patience i had for techno has pretty much vanished.

lauren (laurenp), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:13 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

What do you mean by R&B? Old Skool R&B nights are always full of mods. Somehow I suspect that's not what you mean.

I will be dancing at the Shoegazing Club on the 24th February (at Legion on Old Street) but I suspect everyone else will be dancing at Freaky Trigger.

Kate Kept Me Alive! (kate), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:18 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I'd be into R&B too.

sgs (sgs), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:18 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I mean R&B like uhhh I guess chart R&B. plus maybe a little hip-hop. OR stuff like the Supremes. any R&B really!

any place where they play Ciara, too.

my flatmate's sister keeps promising to take me to proper r&b/garage nights in east london, but so far she hasn't delivered.

lauren (laurenp), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

apparently there are good R&B/hip-hop/garage nights at the Stratford Rex, which is just down the road from me, but everyone I know is too scared to go :(

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

it would be the other patrons who would have to watch out, where stacey's sister is concerned.

wow i was just thinking last night that 'we' should go to a proper R&B night - count me in, i'll even wear a suit and shit.

Alienus Quam Reproba (blueski), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:54 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i'll go to the Rex with you Lex, seeing as it would be about 10 minutes walk home afterwards, wooo

Alienus Quam Reproba (blueski), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 11:55 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Michael Mayer and Miss Kittin!! ...and I have an essay due the next morning.

There's also that norwegian night at Fabric with Annie DJ'ing on the 3rd March, isn't there? oh, dancing, I miss you so.

cis (cis), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 12:01 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

for cheezy chart r&b i've been to that place in the trocadero several times, it's a midweek thing. jim'll remember what it's called and which night. it's quite fun, although i haven't been for ages so i couldn't swear they haven't changed the format.

i'm up for dancing pretty much all the time. although i haven't been 'proper' dancing to music without words for at least a year, so don't know if i'd be into that these days.

colette (a2lette), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 12:06 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

the Rex is ON! for anyone who would be up for it. er, I don't know which are the best nights or anything, I'll have a look when I'm not at work.

cheesy place in the trocadero sounds promising too.

i think i might pass on March 3 for the sake of March 4.

Mayer and Kittin might be tempting enough for me to pass up my prior arrangement...

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 12:09 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i need to put all these dates on the calendar or something

Alienus Quam Reproba (blueski), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 12:10 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I have a terrible allergy to the word 'cheese' when it's applied to music. Bloody Oxford *mutter* *grumble*.

I have a terrible allergy to the word 'cheese' when it's applied to music. Bloody Oxford *mutter* *grumble*.

i couldn't think of a better way of saying it...they've usually just got chart stuff (i'm sure ciara will be on heavy rotation) as well as stuff i've heard on the radio back in detroit but not so much on pop radio here.

ah! bar rumba, i think that's what it's called. tuesdays or wednesdays, i think.

colette (a2lette), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 12:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

miss kittin was great when we saw her! it might have been the shaved head though.

i think we should all ruin our fridays for the sake of kittin and mayer. the thought of me lecturing on 4 hours sleep is pretty amusing, anyway. and cis, couldn't you just write that essay now, or something? i never was very good at the whole essay crisis thing.

Alienus Quam Reproba (blueski), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 13:20 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

the last time i saw her, i remember her mainly playing a lot of big-room techno. i didn't particularly want to be there to begin with, though, so that might have colored my view of the whole thing.

lauren (laurenp), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 13:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I've never seen Miss Kittin, I love her purely on the basis of her records, especially I Com which I am in love with.

if only Cis was writing essays for Toby, then that would resolve itself.

"I mean R&B like uhhh I guess chart R&B. plus maybe a little hip-hop. OR stuff like the Supremes. any R&B really! any place where they play Ciara, too.
-- The Lex"

People may scoff, but Popstarz is totally where you should go. The bottom floor is sticky, but it plays all the above. And then you can escape to Pop heaven on the top floor, make out with someone on the balcony and then dance to schmindie on the middle floor when you're so drunk you don't care that they're playing Razorlight.

Marianna not even I will ever be that drunk!

I have been warned off Popstarz as a Place Of Indie, though if there are non-indie nights then it will be promising...

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 14:08 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

what happens at the Scala on Saturday night these days? i remember it was Cookies & Cream (urban/hip-pop) for a while but no more i presume

Alienus Quam Reproba (blueski), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 14:13 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Popstarz is kind of weird - they insist on having the indie room in the main bit despite the fact that it is always half empty because all the punters are upstairs for the proper hi-nrg gay disco which is, naturally, a quarter of the size and absolutely rammed.

And that little room off to the side where I saw all those big blokes grinding together to Beenie Man. That was weird.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 14:14 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Also I just saw the words 'the Rex is ON!' and got all excited thinking you were talking about Rex The Dog. Damn you.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Wednesday, 16 February 2005 14:18 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

OK I've just found out that my prior arrangement tonight (the Plan B night) is actually just around the corner from Plastic People! and to be perfectly honest Mayer and Kittin will be much more fun. I may show my face at the Spitz, then hotfoot it over to PP - I worry about the ltd tickets on the door selling out though.

is anyone else definitely going?

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 17 February 2005 10:41 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i'd like to see Mayer but don't think i can do this really due to enormous list of things to do that will only increase in size further if i go clubbin' on a schoolnight, sob

Alienus Quam Reproba (blueski), Thursday, 17 February 2005 10:45 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i want to go tonight but i can't because i'm ill.

tiefschwarz on march 12th and get physical in april are definitely in the diary tho.

Rex The Dog should be playing around town a bit over the next few months. Keep an eye on Plastic People...

More aceness coming up, unfortuantly on the same bloody night:

Sat 26th Feb, Fabric - bPitch Control room: Ellen Allien, Tomas Andersson, Sylvie Marks, Smash TV. Steve Bug, Rub n Tug & Idjut Boys in other rooms.

Sat 26th Feb, Koko (ex Camden Palace) - Output Records Party: Tiga, 2 Many DJ's, Blackstrobe, Headman, Trevor Jackson.

xpost - yes, i'd love some r&b dancing. whatever patience i had for techno has pretty much vanished.

Miss L speaks for me - I need to rock to hip hop and r&b again, and good old pop for that matter, 'cause I'm too burned on this electro house guff now. I'll do Annie, Tiefschwarz, Rex, and Get Physical, but beyond that...Truth is, I may have actually had more fun at Club Seal than Vitalic (Psycho Pab excepted). I still want to go to Trash at least once.

Oh, and I have plans tonight, so no go.

i've gone the other way from Lauren and Barima and lately enjoy dancing to/hearing out electro/techno more than I have for some time.

I haven't been to an urban (i'm just gonna keep using that term because i prefer it to anything else) night since Fez Club in Putney ages ago which was actually really good, even when they played Fatman Scoop for the second time...

I was gonna comment on The Popstarz Debate but then I realised that I like and dislike club nights entirely on the basis of whether or not they let me in when I was underage, which is kinda useless to, y'know, adults.

they've existed for some time now. Camden Palace actually did one of the bigger ones for ages featuring Ratpack live etc. regularly.

Butlins are doing some big 90s revival thing at their camps where the likes of Baby D play as well as a lot of rub pop stuff. madness...

haha b4rim4, these guys i know are the backing band something for that night! they haver to learn all the estelle tunes or something and render them in a live stylee. mental.

and yeh obviously there are odd thigns, i was exaggerating quite a bit. but i expect to pay about 10 quid for 1/2 hrs pure enjoyment out of a 3/4 hr night. you know , the time when you are just really having fun instead of feeling tired or being pused or too hot or just waiting for someone to come on etc.

I may bypass London for Glasgow at the end of April, Mayer/Kohncke, I can't really decide and I have to see about money. Maybe I could go to Get Physical in June, but possibly too close to Glastonbury. It's one big decisions nightmare.

Get Physical is almost certainly out for me now. Its my flatmate's birthday weekend and his plans are highly unlikely to run to six hours of electro.

8.30, I think (educated guess, see the CC thread on ILM). Just meet me at Old St at 7 and we'll find a pub to watch it first.

BARMS, Tuesday, 8 March 2005 12:51 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Vitalic, The Hacker & Agoria are playing together as part of that Encompass Conference thing at the end of April, they'll probably be some other ace nights around the same time. Not too sure what the deal will be for tickets though - whether they'll let the proles in as well, or if you have to pay 30 quid for a day ticket to the whole bloody thing.

Also Twitch & Wilkes of Optimo are doing Our Disco at Plastic People Friday March 18th.

charltonlido (gareth), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 15:55 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

DJ Yoda and James Hyman at Cargo on Friday for me probably, part business

Saturday is bridge night

Sven Bastard (blueski), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 15:57 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Friday is either work-drinks/old uni friend/babysitting. Saturday is the middle option.

Saturday is Tiefschwarz and Alter Ego, which is still tempting me, although there's a party I might go to that night as well. I thought you were being sensible and staying in on Saturday, Gareth?

Isn't Vitalic playing Cargo at some point soon?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:03 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Thats probably the Encompass thingy - they're taking over Cargo, 93 Feet East, Vibe and a few other venues. Should be loadsa stuff happening, but as I said, I don't know what the deal will be with tickets for most of it.

Camden Crawl is indie, Lex, back after a few years' hiatus. So, no, you wouldn't find it tempting.

Yup, just checked Ticketweb - they're flogging tickets for £10 now for it at Cargo. I'm guessing there's not going to be a huge amount of tickets if the Encompass people are all getting in free...

There's another multi venue 'thing' going on Easter weekend at various places around town (Koko, Old Blue (Vice Pub), Lock Tavern) with Hot Chip, Optimo, Park Attack, Whitey, Richard X, Paul Epworth (Phones), Druzzis Baltimore Rave Club, Our Disco, Eat Your Own Ears, Detournement & The Boutique. Their website (http://www.adventuresinthebeetrootfield.com/) doesn't seem to be up and running yet, but might be worth keeping an eye on.

"organize"? SP? I am WELL RUB at teh chess.

I can't do further dancing on Sat night BTW as I am newly straight edge until Poptimism and fear I Could Not Cope!

What is Diplomacy, Greg? I don't know these strategy based board-games, they always seemed a bit too BOY for me (sez the Scrabble nutter).

Cut Copy - Xtra HOTT. My "hott date" - not so much. Steve, you didn't miss much re: Wolfmother. I eneded up telling Mari that Doors tributes had no place in 2005, based on the 3 songs we stayed for, though we both agreed they had obvious appeal for their homeland (and a dozen mentalists knowing the words to the songs last night underscored that). We also agreed that had Kate been there, she may very well have ended up molestingobjectifying them.

Richard X is playing out next week, I vaguely recall.

I can't make April 2nd as I will be at my cousin's wedding in a big house in the country, which is about as ungrimey as you can get.

I'm a little sceptical of this live band thing though. The band at Roots Manuva veered dangerously close to funk rock territory at times on Friday and I imagine this being even less appropriate for grime. Especially Lethal B.

Great lineup though.

He wears a scarf whilst DJ-ing in rammed club = SWOON. I love him even more. Do you think he would let me dress him up in preppy clothes even more? (I kind of like Pike too!!)

This thread is rapidly spiralling out of control. Saturday is Richard X, erm... somewhere, according to Marianna. But I think I would prefer Optimo on Friday.

Tiefschwarz is unlikely at this point in time, I think. There's just too much going on and something's got to give from a financial point of view.

i wish parties would be a bit more adventurous, though obviously i can't complain about the quality. but still, it's like there's an identikit: pick one from column a (miss kittin, tiefschwarz, ivan smagghe), one from column b (trevor jackson, erol alkan, jojo defreq, nathan wilkins), and one from column c (riton, pablo psychonaut, 2manydjs, maurice fulton).

BARMS, Wednesday, 16 March 2005 12:07 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Erol, Nathan Gregory Wilkins & Chris Blue are all Bugged Out London residents though, so it's not a surprise they're on the bill really? Though I find it a bit odd that Miss Kitten is playing again, she was only in town like 2 weeks ago surely?

For those heading to Our Disco friday, it'd be a very very very good idea to be queueing by 11pm. Queue's for Optimo can be a wee bit hectic there, even though the doors won't open till 11ish, it'll sell out easy with the crowd who're there then.

lauren is probably otm but it's funny to read all the same. I guess I'd probably find it annoying too, in London.

From Tuomas's random library lust thread last year:

If only I had some credible excuse to go and talk to her

...like inviting her and everyoen else in class to your excelent feminist booze-vitalic-n-sauna party next weekend? hello?

-- :| (...), October 19th, 2004 3:36 PM.

What's Vitalic?

-- Tuomas (tuomas.alh...), October 20th, 2004 9:21 AM.

It is very loud and fast and goes 'wumwumwumwumwumwumwumwum' and there is lots of banging.

-- Matt DC (runmd...), October 20th, 2004 9:22 AM.

Er...

-- Tuomas (tuomas.alh...), October 20th, 2004 9:23 AM.

It's Matt's fantasy version of himself.

Har Matt Superstar.

-- B.A.R.M.S. (b4rim4_...), October 20th, 2004 9:32 AM.


I would totally film a makeout party in a sauna with Vitalic on s/t duties.

-- B.A.R.M.S. (b4rim4_...), October 20th, 2004 10:41 AM.

i'm worried that Tuomas' friend has a secret crush on him and is being all torn up inside now that his attentions are directed at the Icelandic Maiden.

Well, let me assure this isn't the case! But yesterday I got the feeling that Finnish girl who sat next to me in the class (and thus prevented me and the Icelandic girl winding up near each other) and began chatting up with me might harbour some sort of interest in me, which makes the situation even more complicated.


if she's checking you out while in class, chances are she thinks you're cute as well, but is also being shy.

I thought of this at first, but my low self-esteem said to me, "She's super-pretty while you're not exactly cute yourself, she couldn't possibly be interested in you.". Of course, the Icelandic girl might think exactly the same. She certainly isn't pretty in the conventional way, nor even in the Björkish elfin-kinda-way, I think what drew my attention to her is that her appearance escapes all the categories I can think of.

Alba, what is the "bend and snap" technique? And I still don't know what Vitalic is either...

-- Tuomas (tuomas.alh...), October 20th, 2004 11:09 AM.

Vitalic is Ronan's Viagra.

-- B.A.R.M.S. (b4rim4_...), October 20th, 2004 11:12 AM.

Matt wants some but he don't get none.

-- B.A.R.M.S. (b4rim4_...), October 20th, 2004 11:12 AM.

Okay, a quick googling reveals that Vitalic is some sort of skin cream. But what does it have to do with partying?

-- Tuomas (tuomas.alh...), October 20th, 2004 11:16 AM.

You spread it everywhere and get down.

-- B.A.R.M.S. (b4rim4_...), October 20th, 2004 11:17 AM.

vitalic is moisturizing like you wouldnt beleive.

-- :| (...), October 20th, 2004 11:20 AM.

what is the "bend and snap" technique?

In other words, for smooth lines, use Vitalic.

-- B.A.R.M.S. (b4rim4_...), October 20th, 2004 11:23 AM.

I am all about that Alter Ego exfoliator these days.

-- Matt DC (runmd...), October 20th, 2004 11:29 AM.

Garni- *gets shot*

-- B.A.R.M.S. (b4rim4_...), October 20th, 2004 11:32 AM.

Why didn't I think of that? That's twice this thread has made me feel like a failure.

I still don't know what a Vitalic is. The Windmill is sold out, so we are dancing in the office and watching the cops raid every house across the road.

(I didn't go to Luxembourg either last night so I don't know what I'm doing posting this thread anyway.)

Just got in from Superpitcher/ESG. Both were great, as was the half of Jake Fairley's live set I saw before my legs finally gave way. The Sky Was Pink slowly mixed into Brutalga Square = dancefloor heaven. What was NOT great was getting there at 9pm and discovering none of the above were on until midnight. *Everyone* was there for ESG so all the djs beforehand were semi-ignored, which resulted in very little dancing and a distinct lack of voibe. It didn't help that one of the guys seemed to be having trouble with the idea of segueing records together - I don't think I've ever heard so many gaps between tracks in my life.

I got a very sad text from Matt DC at about half two. Apparently Vitalic had his laptop nicked and so couldn't play :-(

Matt DC (Matt DC), Sunday, 1 May 2005 09:21 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Actually, the rest of the night was pretty good. Very good voibe in there and whatever that last tune The Hacker played was amazing.

Agoria were a proper oldskool-fest, weren't they? What with LFO, Strings of Life, that big Trans Europe Express thing and whatever that trancey record was that Rob went mental over. Very nice indeed.

And for the first time ever I've made it home awake on the night bus two nights running.

Poor Vitalic, and poor us :(

such a pity, as until that point it was pretty ace as Matt said, but after the announcement the vibe died and the music got progressively shit (Marilyn Manson, fuck's sake).

The Lex (The Lex), Sunday, 1 May 2005 09:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Did Agoria play after the Hacker then? We were stuck at the back trying not to knock over some bloke filiming for a french TV channel, so couldn't see much.

I assume we left after The Hacker, cos he finished on Flesh & Bone (well, a much messed up version of it anyway...). Great night though, from the sounds of it we left for bagels at the right time!

Can't believe his laptop was nicked, poor bloke.

MattR (MattR), Sunday, 1 May 2005 10:22 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

B-b-but... epic Kraftwerk mixes! I disagree with you on the vibe dying actually - I had a great time in the last couple of hours, but for a lot of that it only seemed to be me, Marianna and Trish on the dancefloor from the ILX crowd so no idea where the rest of you were.

(xpost - Agoria were both before and after the Hacker. There was a lot of fannying around onstage when Le Onzieme Marche was played and that might have been when the laptop went missing, I think).

Matt DC (Matt DC), Sunday, 1 May 2005 10:29 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Also, what was that record (played twice last night) that's one high-pitched stuttering woop wooping noise? Its fantastic and I've heard it out before and I'm sure its really famous but I can't quite place it.

we tried to dance too but I couldn't get into it, my mind was like one big :(

Initially they seemed to be doing a good job in a horrible situation but it really deteriorated I thought - Marilyn Manson's cover of 'Personal Jesus' was just a total nadir.

We listened to the Vitalic album at the house party, it was scant consolation.

The Lex (The Lex), Sunday, 1 May 2005 16:14 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I didn't even notice it was the Manson Personal Jesus at the time. Possibly because my mind was going "durr de durr de durr de durr de durr" in a Monstertruckdriver stylee throughout the entire track.

PS - Anyone want to buy a laptop? One careful owner, scuzzy noise key a bit worn out, otherwise mint.

Kittin is the best human being ever, yes; I really enjoyed Jamie (he is v cute - I forgive one trick ponies if they look like him, though he should have sung more). I looked in on Virus Syndicate for a bit, I'd been really looking forward to them but a) there were only about ten people in Room 2 and the atmosphere was dead, b) aforementioned drama aargh.

I've got to have a quietish one this weekend as well, though that still looks to be including Our Disco tonight (Plastic People from 11ish), a party tomorrow and a warehouse party with Ivan Smagghe Sunday & Secret Sundaze crew (Hoxton somewhere, sometime).

I think there's a 20:20 Vision night at The Key tomorrow as well, can't remember off the top of my head though.

DJ Hell is playing the next Issst at The Key as well, not too sure when it is other than next month yet though. I've not caught him DJing before, so I'm kind of interested I guess.

Where the hell are these places? T Bar? What's this about Rex? One of my mates wants to meet up in Holborn and I'd like some back-up plans 'n' suggestions.

T Bar is on the corner of Shoreditch High St and Bethnal Green Rd. I literally fell into it on Saturday because we couldn't be arsed to wait for our night bus. They played C&C Music Factory.

I know nothing about Rex and am trying not to find out as I will not be able to go.

Rex is tonight @ Electrogogo, and I can't go because I have knackered my knee and I can barely walk and OW OW OW.

june 11th: get physical @ the end vs. border community/crosstown rebels warehouse party 'in east london.' hmmm.

there's another party at that boudoir place next saturday, with rub 'n' tug (who are crazy good) and chickenlips. however, i'm supposed to be detoxing until glastonbury so i should be at home instead like a good child watching big brother.

we were meant to have Headman here in Dublin tonight but it's not looking good, though there is a wealth of stuff on all weekend. sadly no warehouse parties of labels I like but you can't have everything.

I am a bit too tired for this w/end, so the 11th looks appealing. Any later and I wd be in danger of doing myself in pre-glasto.

omg I'm djing at fabricplo and I didn't even realise.

none of us stayed til the end of smagghe, remember! I enjoyed it but not so much that I'd rave about it for weeks afterwards. isolée was great though.

nite versions = rmx album yes, the nite version of 'e talking' is the one which always gets played out.

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 1 September 2005 13:07 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

sep 24: he is at the fabric, again. July was... I dunno, I wasn't so fond of the dudes before isolée (not enough banging bangers! or um any change whatever, it felt like, mind you I am philistine) and that kind of put a dampener on the whole thing, but I was dog-tired before I even got there, so. One reason why I want to see him dj again.

Ricky T = FOOL for skipping Fabric even when spare guestlist became available! AMAZING AMAZING NIGHT.

Fabric was more rammed than I have ever ever seen it before and half the people downstairs seemed to be wide-eyed indie kids there for the first time and petrified of all the people asking them for pills. I can't imagine how little room there would have been in the main room, even the balcony was fairly packed!

I want to know who was playing in room 2 (? - the one where Vitalic wasn't) last, we went there after 2manydjs got too indie and it was insanely banging and fucked with my head a bit.

Photos might emerge at some point...

I have to decide in the next day or two, I guess.

I want to come for definite, and can get the time off, and I'm mostly feeling better, but not 100 percent and was kind of thinking that it might be wise to wait until I am really feeling absolutely better before going out for a long night like it will be.

But I might change my mind, and I could be feeling better by next Friday and then regret my initial decision!

yeah, it did stick an extra 4 quid or so on, which was pretty annoying. not sure if you get to queue-jump, but the ticket claims guaranteed entry if you turn up by one, and i like the idea of being able to show up at half 12 rather than queue at 11, esp as the late end means i'd rather not start until 1, anyway. also it was a way of making myself go, rather than wimp out at the last minute.

Right. I'm currently absolutely dog-tired and I have another insane day at work tomorrow. I also learned today that one of my best friends in the whole world who I haven't seen in an entire year is over on Sunday for the day, and god knows when she'll be back again. Also, if my grandad's condition takes a turn for the worse I might have to head Northwards for the weekend.

there have always been lasers toby! and they've always been green. i love lasers.

i loved lunar park, i'm still trying to marshal my thoughts into coherence because it did my head in a bit - i think it's possibly my favourite ellis work (and i LOVE his stuff generally esp glamorama). the astonishingly narcissistic reality/fiction elision actually works really well though i think the most important element of the book might be the stephen king influence. oh and the last couple of pages are astonishing.

ambrose (ambrose), Monday, 24 October 2005 11:46 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i thought lunar park was pretty good, much better than i'd expected. perhaps i should give glamorama another go (i've read all the others several times, but gave up on that really early on for some reason). lunar park definitely gives me hope that he'll carry on being "relevant".

back to the subject of fabric - how late did you guys stay? were you there when the free beer got handed out?

i haven't really got a great deal to add to what i said above, except that mandy were really, really good, although i think the only thing i recognised was trentemoller's "polar shift".

anyway, november the 19th, magda/richie/ricardo, everyone should come! i'm ysi-ing the hawtin/villalobos essential mix now, guess i'll put up a link in an hour or so...

sorry guys, im not going to fabric again really. ive had enough. i loved magda when i walked in around 12.30 (fi it was her), for about 30 mins, but when i went back i just couldnt be fucked with it.

it soudns stupid but i just sort of resent the fact that to hear music i so completely enjoy, with such incredible sound, is just such an unpleasant place to be. i often look at people in fabric and only about 20% of people even seem to be smiling, or look like they are having fun. the rest are caught up in a maelstrom of pushing past, squeezing in, or just wandering around looking lost and defeated.

too many people last night i know, and it probably wouldnt be like that next time, but i just cant be bothered. everyone i know hates fabric, and i was the last cheerleader for it, i sort of liked the inhumanity of it, the machine like, unpleasant atmoshpere on the door and queuing systems, etc. but i think ive changed sides.

there isnt a solution really, i dont really think that fabric are to blame, if you have people queuing to get in at 4.30 having been there for 3 hours, then you are going to try and get them in for 15 pound a head. but i dont really want to be part of it.

sorry i didnt meet you toby, i left early at about 2.30, partly cos i was knackered from driving down, partly due to logistics with friends still in the queue. i appreciate that had i been i na better state i might have been better equipped to handle the crowds in the main room, but i still sort of feel "how on earth DO you have fun when all night, non stop, people are pushing past you one way or the other?", constant movement, not dancing, but just travel. i dont do any drugs so i wonder if that would take my mind off it, but whilst shutting my eyes and zoning out does help, and felt really good, it wasnt enough.

apparently matthew dear was firing, and i cant believe villalobos played that skream tune.

good to meet you marianna, albeit briefly. sorry it was a bit random to accost you in the middle of the busiest flow of people, but i thought i should say hello at least!

the weekend was super crazy with things happening, and fabric was one of the things to fall by the wayside, partly because i wondered if it was going to be super packed and busy, so ended up at a party in palmers green, which was quite good, but didnt really spark either.

next weekend i think i may go to this night of charlies,

i think there was talk of going to The End on one of the first two weekends of december, i would be up for that.

this talk of packedness seems a shame, i dont really like things to be all uncomfortable like that, space is pretty important

terry lennox. (gareth), Monday, 21 November 2005 13:51 (twelve years ago) Permalink

when we left at 7am you could still barely move in the main room and yet that was significantly more space then there had been earlier. like everyone said, music was great but the place also attracts so many wankers - people getting aggro when someone pushes you onto their feet, beery unpleasant lads on the pull etc. i think and hope that they'll go the way of Ministry unless they moderate the amount of people they let in...

i do LOVE the way they get you reasonably priced cabs when you come out tho.

barbarian cities (jaybob3005), Monday, 21 November 2005 15:09 (twelve years ago) Permalink

too many people last night i know, and it probably wouldnt be like that next time, but i just cant be bothered. everyone i know hates fabric, and i was the last cheerleader for it, i sort of liked the inhumanity of it, the machine like, unpleasant atmoshpere on the door and queuing systems, etc. but i think ive changed sides.

i have to say that i feel the same way, except i think i'm prepared to give it a few more goes - the fact that it's not much more than 20mins walk from home makes it easier to bear, and i do like that not having to queue if you have a ticket makes it easy to get in.

i dont do any drugs so i wonder if that would take my mind off it, but whilst shutting my eyes and zoning out does help, and felt really good, it wasnt enough.

yeah, same here. plus i just don't feel comfortable closing my eyes for longer than about 30 secs.

moral is: get there super super late. 4/5 maybe i guess. but im just too tired to handle that really.

yeah, i was thinking that, too. it doesn't sound like that would have worked that well on saturday, though. i guess i could go to bed at like 9pm on a saturday, set an alarm for 4, get up, go down to fabric for a few hours... but do they even go on past 7 most times?

i wonder if people would pay more to get in if they lowered the numbers? i certainly would.

also, did anyone go to the aftershow on sunday? i've never been to one - maybe i should try getting some sleep on a saturday night and then going out on a sunday afternoon sometime?

toby (tsg20), Monday, 21 November 2005 17:15 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I would definitely pay 20 quid for fewer people, but tbh, there would have had to have been only HALF the number of people in there for it to be really comfortable on Sat. The wanker level seemed higher than usual as well, tho maybe that was just a factor of the packedness. I'll still go back, but not for another R+R night.

RickyT (RickyT), Tuesday, 22 November 2005 00:00 (twelve years ago) Permalink

ha, i'd pay 30 quid! i guess i'm probably in the minority though.

I am going to find out what Lovelife is on the 13th February because we're apparently DJing there. So I can be even more confused, Anna and Marianna and Annemarie and Anna-Marie. I shall be DJ Marie for the night.

lovelife is anna-marie's weekly residency in the 93 ft east bar, gareth - i think marianna and i bumped into you there once. you should come next monday cos i'm the guest dj. as should you, kate! you can find out what it is then.

i don't have a myspace, no, and am Holding Out because 1) i am on enough internet places already and 2) i don't like the layout. but if it means one gets to meet hott r&b stars it must be a good thing!

JME was doing this tune which was this really philistine sort of funk, slow, heavy bare beats which were really clunky but awesome! dunno what it was. the renegade boys turned up from whitechapel but they didnt really set the room on fire any more than they had done at dirty canvas. chantelle and hattie collions were doing a decent set, plasticman was really good as well. left when newham generals came on.

from another messageboard:

we're going to have fabric go on until 9am on saturday night / sunday morning so make sure you bring dancing shoes, then....

we're having another big fuck off afterparty just like the we had back in November just for the sake of it as it would be bloody rude not to wouldn't it.

so then, on sunday from midday we're taking over the T-bar until midnight Very Happy

musical entertainment will be provided by any of the DJs that are still standing from Saturday!

which does sound good. but i suspect that dancing won't be what i feel like on sunday afternoon.

Margaret Dygas is great. Plays some awesome minimal stuff. There is an excellent mix of hers on minimallondon, in the mixtapes section.

I'll be at Fabric on Saturday night, after party for a bit maybe, and T-Bar on Monday definately.

T-Bar has been getting really busy. Last Stink for DJ Koze was a little bit like DC-10, still cheering and up for it at 2am on a school night. Which is fun.

Then there is James Holden at T-Bar on Thursday. Big week. Fun.

Fabric wasnt as rammed as it has been. All in all fairly manageable. They also extended the hours and it was open till 9.30am. When I left at 8, Ricardo and Zip were playing back to back, dancefloor had space to move and upstairs was half full.

Afterparty at T-Bar was excellent too. Ricardo played back to back with Kiki / Matt John / Zip and Craig Richards. Lots of random messiness but quite funny.

Stink tomorrow will likely go till 2. Last Stink went till 3-3.30, but I think theyve been wrapping up a bit earlier. Anyway should be fun. Margaret Dygas mix is available at: http://www.minimallondon.com/margaret_dygas/mixtapes/margaret_dygasMIXTAPE_underl_nemix.zip

Stink was an eyeopener for me (I'd never been to a club in England before). I thought the music was a tad inconsistent (Neil Diamond?) but oh my god Mayer played the Chain so all was well with the world. And some of the newer Kompakt stuff sounds tasty.

I'm pulling out of all this weekend's festivities - Monday is a very important day and I know how I feel physically and emotionally after rolling London dancing and it's not a state I want to be in next week.

Yeah Dog - had no idea you were Tami's boyfriend. I got home and thought, "Shit, I forgot to try and find Tami's boyfriend". So way to go on the random connection.

Minus easter party is Hawtin, Pierce, Magda, Heartthrob and Gaiser. On the 16th down at one of those crappy clubs in the tunnel at London Bridge. Awful venue for such good tunage.

Absolutely no chance of going to Bangface. On first glance it looks like horrendous stuff.

where should i dance in london? mind you, i do not 'dance' per se (i have been known to make semi-coordinated upper body movements when seated not capable of duplication when standing). nor do i drink very much. nor do i go to clubs in new york evar. but it seems the thing to do in london town and it might be interesting to walk around and observe people and lights and milieu and hear distinctly across-the-pond sounds. fabric, then? or end/aka? tell me of notting hill arts club.

gabbneb (gabbneb), Friday, 17 March 2006 17:19 (twelve years ago) Permalink

This question is unanswerable until you tell us when you're actually in London. I'm sure you've mentioned it on another thread I've missed, but really, everything depends on what's happening on any one weekend. The End, for example, can be awesome one weekend and rubbish the next.

Frankly, the same goes for pretty much everything in this city.

OMG! I had a flashback at about 7.30 this evening to about 5am, just as we were leaving. I bumped into my first girlfriend's ex-boyfriend, who was there as a policeman trying to clear the whole thing out. The last time I'd seen him was nine years ago when I shouting "you are a complete cunt" in his face, with good reason.

I was in NO STATE WHATSOEVER to be having the conversation I actually had with him at the time. I think said "how are you in the police force? Didn't you get done for fraud?"

There's nothing wrong with the Old Blue Last in my opinion. Just about every pub/bar in the ditch is pretty random, but this one has better music. Its got a good vibe going when the music is doing its thing.

Old Blue Last was good. Only got down there around 10pm. They had started at 10am :|

Prins Thomas played at 12 and had to bail to catch a flight. Music was really good with nu-wave downstairs and italo upstairs. A few messy people though.

i had assumed i could just come in a bit early.... is that erroneous?

the key is demonstrably the worst club in london, or the worst one i have been too. jeff samuel was really good but it was like i was clubbing in watford. also, far too expensive. i dont mind expensive as long as i dont feel like cattle and the club is glamourous to back it up. canvas feels worth it, the key is pretty foul.

Hal! Jordan! HAL! JORDAN! (Barima), Saturday, 15 April 2006 12:36 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I don't think I have ever been to the Key, but that line-up makes it worth all that, I think.

What is the name of that tiny club that's actually a converted underground public toilet on Commercial Street? It's fantastic! We stumbled in there last night intrigued by the neon-lit bus-shelter entrance and the enormous bassline coming through the floor.

Walked in for free and Tomas Andersson's Copy Cat was just kicking in. For the next two hours it was amazing - people went mental to the last minute of Silent Shout and I finally got to hear Dextro's Do You Need Help out. And at least five absolute stormers I will be desperate to identify for the next few weeks. Sometimes, the bright lights and cute girls turn up when you least expect them :)

I don't ever want this thread to end. I want it go on, as an ever-present reminder of the good times.

Lost was good. Not quite the usual lost sound, but that's a good thing in my book. Really good sets by all. Didn't get to hear Troy, but Gaiser was really strong, Magda playing her usual quality industrious building sound, Hearthrob had two huge tunes (Baby Kate, and that one at the end), Richie was strong, but we bailed at 7am, with him only one hour in. Off to T-Bar now to catch the last of it.

The Lex (The Lex), Monday, 24 April 2006 08:08 (twelve years ago) Permalink

turnmills was pretty good. we (a motley crue of waifs and strays) got there about 730, and went into the top bar bit, and got a pint. i think we had forgotten that there was a main room, so we tried to find it, and then we did. downstairs was split in two, there was horrible hardhouse in one room, and plip-plop in the other. we met some other people in there, i think some girl txted you with my phone lex?

they chucked everyone out just before noon, and we went up to a pub on farringdon road, the eagle, i think, and had a couple of pints in there. i think there were 7 of us left at this point. about 130pm two people left in search of some rave in docklands, i'd had enough by then and called it quits and got the bus home. went to bed about 3, literally holding my head in my hands. woke up at midnight, and ate a pear yoghurt:)

today i feel fine!

one of the people that got subsumed into our waif collective, is, i think, a friend of our own stirmonster, and our not own johnny.

i liked that rancho relaxo tune lex

the tune you asked about, with the big bursts of fuzzy static, was shane berry's fillertet (trapez). i think i said that above, but my typing appears to have been a little, uh, off

Ronan's in London that weekend too, but I'm not planning on going to bed on the 12th so Fabric's probably out. If you're around on Friday then come to Sugar!

Rollcall for Braxe? I know we have Canvas splitters but should we all meet in the same pub beforehand? Are there any decent boozers in the area at all?

geeta my recommendation is that you should come! i dont really have a more convincing argument than that tho.

midnight def isnt too late to come tho. might be worth getting a ticket before, or getting someone to buy one for you, or getting on the guestlist

Kat and I have Braxe tickets, and I can't make the next weekend, so I am v.much in favour of Geeta coming along for the French mentalism.

As for preclubpub, the King Charles I on Northdown Street has always looked like a decent if small boozer, but I've never actually been in there. The Driver on Cally Road looks tolerable as well.

I was thinking closer to 10ish really, possibly earlier, as I'd quite like a chat with the Canvas kids first, and we don't know for a fact that this bar will be open. Anyone know what it's called? Is there a cut-off time after which tickets don't guarantee entry?

I am vaguely tempted to find some way of ploughing right through in order to watch the last game of the season but I expect this is BEYOND FOOLHARDY. And impossible, as anyone who's seen me past about 6.30am will agree.

Justice / Oizo & co was fantastic in parts, possibly the most rediculous number of dj's I've ever seen in a booth at one time. Though possibly Sebastian / Kavinsky were kinda more fun at musichall last weekend - mostly for the lack of skitzo dancer tonight, Oizo was... kinda disapointing, went from too deepy stuff to banging without stopping inbetween?!

How was the key? Heard it was a kinda poor turnout? Oh, the our disco thing continues this afternoon at the lock tavern from 3 / 4ish with whoever's still standing from earlier...

MattR (MattR), Sunday, 7 May 2006 06:10 (twelve years ago) Permalink

oof. sorry i didnt make it, dudes! i was so exhausted last night after the flight from new york. how was braxe?

geeta (mark s), Sunday, 7 May 2006 06:18 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I thought the first hour or so of Braxe was AMAZING. Proper "THIS IS MY FIRST DJ SET EVER, I AM GOING TO ROCK THIS PARTY!" type set. Starting off with LFO and Body Language and then going full-on hands-in-the-air filterdisco was exactly what I wanted. Like being deluged in sugar, but proper high quality French pastry.

Then Cagedbaby came on and killed the voibe almost immediately - total loss of focus, bad Bloc Party remixes and so forth. There was some good Get Physical type stuff on in the other room, but it was empty, except for the bit when those breakdancing dudes were in there.

So it kind of sucked - so we left, tried to get into Canvas and failed, but they let us back into the Key for free so it was alright. And the last hour or so of Cagedbaby was great - Sky Was Pink, Rej, Zdarlight and loads of other stuff I didn't know. Yay.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Sunday, 7 May 2006 18:48 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Also, Cagedbaby is the worst dressed person I have ever seen. Like Bill Bailey made up by Paris Hilton or something.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Sunday, 7 May 2006 18:54 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Braxe didn't actually seem to do a lot. Kris Menace played LFO, Body Language and others for first 20 mins or so. You knew Braxe was there when he dropped a dirty, pulsating rework of 'Music Sounds Better With You' to good effect, and this after an epic 'Discopolis'. They played an absolutely fantastic track at some point inbetween which started off like frenchified mid-late 90s mad jacking techno and progressed into more modernised teutonic/trentemoller-esque thing. I wonder if i will find out what it was...they dropped in Size 9's 'I'm Ready' too which was a bit of a surprise, and not necessarily a welcome one, but we survived the big beat breakdown...i had to leave at 3 tho.

guy on before (Kevin Griffiths?) was good too - played Paperclip People's 'Throw' as the room filled up with dry ice. good moment.

Konal Doddz (blueski), Sunday, 7 May 2006 19:21 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I didn't get back into the Key bcz my brother annoyed the bouncer with some biz that I don't really remember. It was good to meet all you folks though and I had a lot of fun dancing to Braxe and playing the crap Dr Who pinball. LFO sounded fucking great. The other room was weird bcz it seemed to consist only of a single giant podium. There was so much dry ice that I felt I was in a dream sequence from some flick like Manhunter or something.

Raw Patrick (Raw Patrick), Sunday, 7 May 2006 19:28 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Dr Who pinball?! omg i need to go back!

Konal Doddz (blueski), Sunday, 7 May 2006 19:32 (twelve years ago) Permalink

It had underpowered flippers and tons of unused space--everything is crammed up at the top where the ball will barely reach. Weirdly the most prominently featured Dr in the backing artwork is Sylv. McCoy!

Raw Patrick (Raw Patrick), Sunday, 7 May 2006 19:36 (twelve years ago) Permalink

They played LFO at Canvas as well. Can't remember who though, like someone mentioned earlier, there was a quite a throng behind the decks with every man and his beard trying to play a record and tweak the EQs.

It was a really good vibe, you could tell the Justice tracks because they have that same rough and rocky chords. Busy P was funny holding up sleeves and the table lamp.

Was Sebastian Tellier behind the decks? And is Tellier, the same person as DJ Sebastian? And final question, does Ozio look like Tellier?

Good to meet Alex, I didn't see anyone else. Anyone going to see Tellier at the Spitz tomorrow night?

rchinn (rchinn), Sunday, 7 May 2006 19:46 (twelve years ago) Permalink

iirc wasn't Oizo aka Quentin in one of the Levis ads with Flat Eric himself (the one where they are in the car)? if so, he didn't look much like Tellier but that was quite a few years ago now so who knows...

lfo was played too fast!

man i had a big big night. m,ade upfor a poor friday by a million times. was feeling all the tunes up until cagedbaby. sorry i slunk off but to be honest i was fucked and had to at least sit down. managed to catch a bus home at 5.30 so it wasnt too harsh.

i didnt know any of the tunes except "sweat on the walls" and "oh superman" remix and they all totally slayed me.

gareth, players paradise appears to be a label. cant remember what that tune sounded like, but it might be martinez "sunbeams". or maybe they played that as well.

theres a tune where ipoked my head roudn the dj booth and all i saw was "switch" and "control records" but i dont know whether it was a switch tune or not. it seemed pretty familiar but i think i must have got the wrong end of the stick.

the key is totally ok by me anyways now... the bar staff! swoon

was at 54 commerical for a bit on friday night to see Ame, who was ok, after seeing Fugiji & Miyagi at 93ft east, which was also pretty good (sounds just like their 10 inches). it was pretty full then too, the dancefloor was humid, the crowd was ok if a little messy, but nowhere near the standards of the sunday morning zombie parties.

tonight padded cell were alright. didnt sound too live. one guy was working a sequencer which looked like ableton while richard stern operated a keyboard. their tunes are excellent, but herbal really has no vibe, so the crowd was a bit flat.

fabric wasnt as full as normal. when i got down optimo had room two working well, mixing on of the new minus tracks with la la land, and dropping the carl craig mix of revelee which sounds on that system. only other act i really heard was patrick chadronnet, his main tune rocked, and the others also.

She was great! All very Berlin and minimal but lushly melodic in places as well. Also I want to marry her, especially after seeing her standing there texting people in the DJ booth.

Lindstrom & Prinz Thomas surprised me as well. Much chunkier sound than I was expecting and it left me going "why didn't the album sound like that?" Unfortunately they ended an hour earlier than they were scheduled to, we were in the other room at the time and didn't get to see whether they played I Feel Space. Gah.

Weirdest moment of the night = Erol playing a set of big chunky rocky electro (Justice and Vitalic and lots of stuff that sounded like them) only to drop Rage Against The Machine - Killing In The Name in the middle of it. The place went fucking mental.

i was totally feeling lindstrom - all those dirty funk bass grooves topped off by music box stylings at the exact mid-point of tweeness and ket-blankness. unfortunately anna-marie was hating it, but the other room was ace anyway (APART FROM ratm, have you NO SHAME!).

ellen allien was ridiculously beautiful - i couldn't keep my eyes off her! her white halter-neck top was gorgeous, and her hair looked fab too. she looked like she was having a lot of fun, esp when she started to sing along to her own vocals.

Don't think so. I have no money, it's Fabric and there's an England match the next day I want to be in a reasonable state for. That minimal stuff on the 8th looks tempting though.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Thursday, 22 June 2006 08:24 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Actually, what I would really like sometime soon is a night of big FRIDAY dancing, as every Saturday in forever is kind of filled up. Anything good going on?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Thursday, 22 June 2006 08:27 (twelve years ago) Permalink

My friends are playing at a bar named Fluid tomorrow nite, round the corner from Fabric. Usual suspects' dance music, basically. Night's called Short Circuit, used to do very good buisness back in our student daze.

Did anyone go on Saturday in the end then?

Also, who is up for CROSS CENTRAL on the August bank holiday weekend? I'm toying with the idea of both nights but may just get Saturday tix at first.

annabel, ian, sophie, robin and i went, with some of annabel's work colleagues. it was FUCKING AWESOME! we ended up drinking lager on the pavement of gray's inn road at 8.30am like proper homeless people. impressively katie also went out raving, still with her cast on.

Saturday at Fabric was great. Good little Sonar carry-on. I didnt make it to Public Life but am sure it would have been equally debauched.

i think i may need a small break from the dancing. i realised yesterday that all my weekends these days appear to have at least one night of no sleep in them, this may not be something that it is perhaps wise to do every week, and i need to save energy for the second half of august.

Anyone up for Errorsmith on Saturday?

http://www.errorsmith.de/

Terms like "spastic disco", "elastic breaks", even "wonky techno" have been thrown about when it comes to describing Erik Wiegand's Errorsmith project. With only a handful of releases and even less live visibility, this is a rare treat for anyone interested in the more experimental end of dancefloor rhythms. He'll be treating us to an improvised three-hour Ableton Live set that'll see dancehall / dubstep / disco as well as his own twisted creations being thrown into a heady mix. Just bear in mind that he comes from Berlin's revered Basic Channel family of artists and you'll be fine. Sonic perfection stretched to breaking point.

for me - TDK on saturday. possibly lost on sunday but have been feeling a tiny bit under the weather this week so it might be unwise, also have not got ticket yet either. monday - picnic and drinking in the park then off to 93 ft east for bank holiday lovelife. followed, maybe, by spontaneous t bar action. tue and wed OFF WORK HURRAH.

i guess the mulletover part of crosscentral is the best, though cant say im totally overenthused about ellen allien and alex smoke.

Dude, whatever you do, don't hold out for Lost and then realise no one's going! Don't let this one pass you by!

I think Druzzis looks better than the Mulletover part, although I'm hoping Optimo/Smagghe will be on earlier than Ellen Allien. Alex Smoke can fuck off. I don't particularly care though, I'm happy just wandering and dancing to whatever sounds best.

yea yea, i know, it was a minor waver you are right about optimo, i forgot about that. druzzis is probably better. i think i thought the mulletover part was going to be more kind of hacke/barnes than it appears to be.

anyway, there is likely to be afterparty action, im sure:)

My two cents, drop TDK and Lost. Garnier is hit-and-miss, Mills will bang out loop techno in that dull SEOne venue.

Druzzi's is a good call. Sunday could be the biggest possibly be the biggest party day ever.

I do keep saying this but, I so wish these kind of line-ups (not just Soviet organised) would include a tiny bit of something lighter on the side (okay maybe this would be Arovane and Cursor Minor here?), it doesn't have to be a completely lame 'chill-out' room, just a little levity. 50% of that line up makes me smile, but the other 50% of yet more possible gnarliness just makes me frown. Anyway, not meaning to judge from afar just annoyed that I don't feel able to really justify a trip to London town for this.

ellen was so so amazing as well.

what was that café which appeared across the road just as we needed it?! that place was exactly what i was craving. BEER AND TEA ALL MORNING.

The Lex (The Lex), Monday, 13 November 2006 10:00 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I thought everyone that wasn't Ellen or Rex was a bit meh really, although there were some good minimal noises in Room One early on it all went very clunky later in the night.

Partly because Ellen was playing live and Rex (I think) only played his own records and remixes, there was a general feeling of being more like a fantastic gig than a club night in its own right. But awesome nonetheless.

Also, for some reason I just didn't expect to hear Heartbeats, it hadn't even occurred to me he might play it, so it was just this ridiculous joyful moment.

That was probably the most welcome cup of tea of my life. So, Carl Craig at The End in two weeks time, then?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Monday, 13 November 2006 10:10 (eleven years ago) Permalink

carl craig for definite

I thought everyone that wasn't Ellen or Rex was a bit meh really. i actually thought kinda the opposite

i thought rex was absolutely terrible. i'd never heard him before, and i hope i never hear him again. it sounded like sonic the hedgehog

ellen allien was better, but i found her very one dimensional, quite static and square, would have liked something more snakey. id never heard her before either really,

the stuff much earlier on was the best, in the end. konrad black i guess,

sheperding lex back home was quite a feat, he kept staggering off in the wrong direction, refused to believe that kings cross wasnt clerkenwell, though my street was tottenham court road, and only noticed we had actually got home after we had been home for 10 minutes

i woke up at 4pm and said "the chestnuts. give them to me"

-- (688), Monday, 13 November 2006 10:19 (eleven years ago) Permalink

in my mind everything post-fabric - the lurching around clerkenwell, the tea, the beer, the tea, the beer, the journey home which i don't remember at all and thus didn't really happen - was compressed into a short period of time just after dawn and before anyone else was out and about. the idea that much of it might have happened on sunday afternoon with lots of normal people and children watching gives me the fear.

the best moment was when anna-marie and i thought 'way out' was about to end, and we looked at each other and said "can this song never ever ever end and just go on forever" and ellen must have heard us because the beat kicked in again and it went on forever!

ellen prowling around the stage = hott.

'i look into mid-air' = best song ever. in what universe is sounding like sonic the hedgehog bad!

I've always enjoyed her mix CDs definitely - in fact Weiss.mix was probably what started getting me back into house and techno in a big way a few years ago - but sometimes people don't have the knack of playing to the crowd I suppose. She is playing on Room 2, so by all rights should be keeping up the tempo, but I'll find out for myself soon I guess. If she is dull I can at least end up staring at the lasers... again.

in my month here i haven't managed to get any dancing done because i haven't met anyone particularly into 'clubbing' and even if they were they all live miles away - so what are people's experiences of going out alone in london? a dumb question i know as i won't know how it'll work out for me until i try it, but i guess i'm looking for some kind of vague reassurance that it's a reasonable thing to do.

Wow, reading this thread is such a nostalgia trip, so many great nights.

Raving is an occasional treat rather than a regular thing these days but will be going to the Unabombers/Lowlife party at Corsica Studios next weekend. I basically only ever go to Corsica these days, but that's alright as it's basically the best venue in London.

Matt DC, Saturday, 22 October 2011 09:37 (six years ago) Permalink

I'd like you to say KFW was terrible, I was planning on going and then only realised that today was the day at 11pm.

(although thanks EDB, yours is the kind of vague reassurance I feel I need before venturing out myself! Also helped by the fact that after well over a month of trying I finally have a smartphone and need never fear getting lost again [unless I lose the phone itself].)

sunn :o))) (Merdeyeux), Saturday, 22 October 2011 09:39 (six years ago) Permalink

I'm sort of semi-tempted to go to Fabric in the middle of the afternoon today, just because we can.

Matt DC, Saturday, 22 October 2011 09:41 (six years ago) Permalink

The KFW show was quite good, though the sets were all too short. Keith played for like 30-40 minutes. The other sets were like 20 minutes (what the hell is up with that?). I might be a bit biased, though, since I found a 10 pound bill on the floor that night.

Good to know about Corsica. Considering that Colony/Plex Suregeon, Traversable Wormhole, etc. thing, which would make me grateful if I am able to walk out of that party alive.

Heard from an unreliable source that Fabric is disappointing, but I want to see for myself. Thinking the upcoming Tectonnic night (scuba, addison groove, pinch) might be a good induction.

That and the *free* bicep night is basically what I've been working around.

Hills Like White Broncos (EDB), Saturday, 22 October 2011 09:51 (six years ago) Permalink

Ha, I just got a smartphone too. It definitely is reassuring.

haven't been to Fabric in ages - got really turned off by it a few years ago. I... don't much like the vibe, I guess? also, it's kind of gropey.

if you haven't been to fabric you probably should. just to experience it. i've had some great nights there but these days i only go about once a year (and have already been this year so i doubt i'll be back).

always used to say i'd turn up at fabric at breakfast time/middle of the day but that never seems such a good idea when you wake up fresh and sober and it's a nice day outside. why on earth would i want to go inside fabric on a day like today?

i plan to rave a bit more this autumn, the past few months have been ridic busy and i haven't had the time for anything. low life will be a good start.

I actually broke my dance duck last night with a little lol hipster house surrounding Nite Jewel at the Shacklewell Arms. It was a bit grim and deadening but such is the nature of that specific situation I guess - if I can do it there I can do it anywhere.

Might go along to Lowlife, if the conference I'm at that day doesn't take too much out of me. Don't really know what to expect and as good as the blurb is ( http://www.corsicastudios.com/index.php/october-2011/493-low-life-october-29th ) it isn't telling me an awful lot, but the collective enthusiasm here sells it enough.

Hooo... That was a fun 14 hours at Fabric. And yes, Moodymann did play Nirvana! (seconds after I walked into the room and passed someone wearing a Nirvana shirt. It was a moment of weird cognitive dissonance: the mixture of seeing a reference to something and hearing it - as if your mind were creating some strange sensory cross-referentiality - and the even more strange fact of seeing moodymann, of all people, playing it. For a moment everything felt as if it was either no longer, or way too, real).

low life will sell out,get tickets. it's run by the people behind djhistory.com, has a bit more of a grown up vibe, it's ace, you should def get to one.

can't recommend beauty and the beat enough, it's a shame it's not bring your own booze/smoking indoors/just do what you want anymore. they have the best club soundsystem i've ever heard. warm and wonderful sounding. the same system david mancuso uses for his loft parties (which are also a fun evening out!) eclectic in a good way, always make a new friend when i go :)
