Oh, "Secret East London location" :(

Matt DC, Saturday, 7 July 2012 11:11 (six years ago) Permalink

niiice. i'm trying to take advantage of a relatively free summer as much as possible, so bookended by beauty and the beat next week (has anyone ever been?) and some kind of disco weekender at the nest with aeroplane and todd terje at the end of august, but that leaves me a lot of gaps to fill.

what's the 'secret east london location' thing all about? 9 times out of 10 it's a normal club which they presumably have booked from the beginning, so...?

I've never had a less than great night at BATB and the new years party was easily the best night out dancing I've ever had.

Best bit of the night- coming up from the downstairs chill out room to find my sister leading a conga line full of people wearing these comedy glasses we'd bought back from Xmas with the parents. Soundtracked to some ridiculous tribal crusty disco acid funk amazingness through *that* soundsystem. One of the few nights I can look back on where there's no dark /weird /ugly shit everyone just had a blast start to finish.

Also lol at when the venue owner came over to Cedric to tell him he's got one more song, Cedric kinda looks at the packet out dance floor, turns the volume up and gestures 'I can't hear you' to which owner dude laughed and the party carries on for another hour or so with the lights on.

Quite tempted by Diskjokke and In Flagranti in Dalston tonight actually.

Everywhere in London seems to be competing to set themselves up as a shelter for displaced ravers.

Matt DC, Saturday, 7 July 2012 15:44 (six years ago) Permalink

i was at BATB on new year's as well. i think i had a great time but the only music i can remember is the smiths.

jabba hands, Sunday, 8 July 2012 20:59 (six years ago) Permalink

I need to fucking get out more.

EDB, Sunday, 8 July 2012 21:04 (six years ago) Permalink

We went to Fabric in the end, dull and clumpy for the first hour or so and got progressively better. Weird highlight was Petre Inspirescu dropping a significant section of Debussy's La Mer over some skeletal house.

Matt DC, Monday, 9 July 2012 10:06 (six years ago) Permalink

usual fabric thing of not putting first guest on till after 4

was kinda underwhelmed by cobblestone jazz:/

I've heard guests play earlier before, but that may have been years ago.

Matt DC, Monday, 9 July 2012 10:30 (six years ago) Permalink

guests do play earlier it depends who tho, if its ricardo, zip or RPR it will always be later

Tempted by Alfalfa @ Rhythm Factory this Sat. Romania's Herodot & Xandru, should be promising.

Any thoughts on this? It's during my last week(s) so I don't mind spending extra for some kind of blowout.

Refuse to entertain anything at the London Pleasure Gardens again.

mmmm, Saturday, 28 July 2012 09:43 (six years ago) Permalink

Been playing it safe recently, just Corsica Studios. Last Sat with Jay Shepheard and the Sat before with Michael Mayer. Mayer wasn't so good but Shepheard was really great.

mmmm, Saturday, 28 July 2012 19:43 (six years ago) Permalink

what was lacking w/ mayer? i managed to persuade a bunch of visiting friends to go to beauty and the beat instead of that and they collectively had one of the best clubbing nights of their lives, RESOOLT and such.

Merdeyeux, Saturday, 28 July 2012 20:18 (six years ago) Permalink

What type of stuff is Mayer playing out these days?

last time i saw mayer i was very disappointed. might have been something to do with the shit sound and overcrowding though.

Right now I'm at fabric for dixon, shackleton, joy o, etc. and I am getting really good work done on my MA dissertation!

No joke! I wish I was this productive all the time, no less while writing on my phone.

ha, people have found it quite amusing that my notepad is full of scribbled moments of club inspiration. move the body move the mind.

Heheh, conversely people have been amused, but mostly baffled, seeing me reading academic essays during downtime at dance parties.

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...

Lol, last night Theo Parrish likewise played Nirvana.

So, the two and only times I've seen Detroit House DJs here they've both dropped Smells Like Teen Spirit in the middle of their sets. Am I missing something here?

formerly EDB (ed.b), Sunday, 2 September 2012 08:07 (six years ago) Permalink

Laurent Garnier is also a well known abuser of that track. I'm not sure quite how I'd react to it, it was a "gateway track" for me, but hearing it hundreds of times in my misspent indie club years has massively dulled the appeal. I feel the same way about Out of Space, which is often used by DJs in a similar way.

i was at the dfa thing at corsica studios last night, and fucking hell was it ever packed and boiling. i gave it a go but getting enjoyment out of that environment was beyond me. wish i'd sold my ticket and gone headbang to theo instead.

tubular, mondo, gnabry (Merdeyeux), Sunday, 2 September 2012 14:41 (six years ago) Permalink

If it's any consolation Plastic People was packed and boiling, too.

I just regret waiting until my last week in London to go to his monthly night.

formerly EDB (ed.b), Sunday, 2 September 2012 16:08 (six years ago) Permalink

Anything happening sep 13-24 and I do know about poptimism so that's already in the plan.

I am going to ask a question that may be met with raised eyebrows: anyone ever been to Slimelight?

(I rather like dancing to goth/EBM/industrial)

homosexual II, Sunday, 2 September 2012 16:48 (six years ago) Permalink

Don't expect to do much dancing, but I figure this will be potentially nuts, no?

I am so tempted by that on almost every level. AND YET: I hate Eat Shite; Become Shite so much that I would probably actually refuse to go to a night that had put them on the bill. :-/

roman flugel is there too! tempting but those big name lineups just scream 'roadblock' to me (lol old). i'm thinking about factory floor/peter gordon at the ICA on the same night, and/or juju & jordash at corsica on friday.

jabba hands, Wednesday, 12 September 2012 11:53 (six years ago) Permalink

If I was still in London there would be NO question about that Dial night. That lineup could be in the 9th ring of Hell and it would still be amazing.
