Yeah, we've been emailing via MySpace. Do you MySpace? She just wrote us randomly after seeing what I wrote about her version of Dont Cha on my blog, and became our Friend.

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!

(i should point out that lovelife is 7-11pm and thus perfectly acceptable for a monday night: it's not a banging dancefloor thing though we have been known to do a spot of raving on the tables in the past)

anna-marie is one of the ones that came out on saturday? i lose track. perhaps she was doing the lighting

i would like to go to this lovelife thing. so, i will. yes

Live: Cosmic Sandwich (aka Steve Barnes)

i was disappointed that the record i really liked around 4am was NOT john starlight

You might have misheard me saying 'Ztarlight'. Possibly.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Friday, 3 February 2006 20:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i heard no such thing

i dont like john starlight

i like steve barnes though

and i like the 11th march

terry lennox. (gareth), Friday, 3 February 2006 20:43 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I am enjoying the new Michael Clegg record on Trapez.

Big Sexy Land on Saturday, yeah? Lex is going to Tiga but I assume Steve is down for it (Pre-Manc meet with Affectian and JD Pisces)? Anything to avoid letting my neighbours abduct me to Inferno's (though there is bed).

BARMS, Thursday, 16 February 2006 12:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I will be there. Hopefully with a large group of people.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Thursday, 16 February 2006 12:34 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

did anyone go to stink? i think i'll definitely go to the next one (still haven't seen michael mayer).

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 16 February 2006 12:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i went to stink last week. DJ Koze played quite deep minimalism and r'n'b for a bit, Lazarus played his usual selection of whatevers hot this week. Didn't do much dancing, as my snogging partner was present- but it was really good.

Is anyone going to t-bar tonight? Ivan Smagghe and Andrew Weatherall

Barnaby (Barnaby), Thursday, 16 February 2006 12:59 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

My plan is to go to Big Sexy Land and then maybe Tiga as well.

Sororah T Massacre (blueski), Thursday, 16 February 2006 13:02 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

what's Big Sexy Land?

Barnaby (Barnaby), Thursday, 16 February 2006 13:08 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

can't make smagghe/weatherall, although i'll be interested to hear reports back from anyone who does...

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 16 February 2006 13:52 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i know this is more a dance music thread, but im down for essentials then straight outta bethnal tomorrow... if anyone wants the grime.

i want to come down for cosmic sandwich (gareth - tom is planning to go) but think it clashes with a night we are putting on, possibly.

other key dates (good pun huh) - triple r/riley at sud electronic 31/3, jeff samuel at the key 13/04. should be down for both of those i reckon.

ambrose (ambrose), Thursday, 16 February 2006 13:56 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

oops ofrgot to say alex under is playing with riley at that night

ambrose (ambrose), Thursday, 16 February 2006 13:56 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

yay someone wants to go to the grime!!! ambrose, i will email you.

i was going to do weatherall/smagghe but feel like utter shit today - haven't had a quiet night in since last thursday.

on saturday my vague plan is to go to big sexy land, and then on to tiga, this will depend on a lot of things inc organisation. matt, are you and yours coming along to tiga afterwards?

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 16 February 2006 16:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

some t-bar listings:








i would go and see magda next week, if it wasn't for me not being in england. definitely going to stink on the 6th, though.

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 19 February 2006 04:43 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

jeez, fabric on the 4th of march looks quite good:

Craig Richards
Ricardo Villalobos
Matt John (live)
Room Two
Drama Society (live)
Room Three
Tom Middleton
King Britt

however i don't think i'm ready for fabric again after the villalobos/hawtin horror. but if anyone finds out anything about an afterparty then i might well be up for that...

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 19 February 2006 04:46 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

haha so far my rolling dancing 2006 big dates are a virtual carbon copy of my rolling london 2005 big dates - vitalic at bugged out last jan, tomas andersson this jan; bpitch night at fabric last march, bpitch night at fabric this march. yeah, march 4 sounds ace.

tiga at bugged out was pretty good last night too!

The Lex (The Lex), Sunday, 19 February 2006 19:29 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

oh shit lex, really sorry...i never check my gmail and didnt see this thrwead before i went! what a shame, dirty canvas was prretty giood although a bit strange and sort of took a looong time to warm up...straigth outta bethnal was on fire! that is definitely worth going to next time, JME and skepta were big, think some of selw dem were there but dont know anything about them. 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.

ambrose (ambrose), Sunday, 19 February 2006 22:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

it's ok, i didn't go in the end - was a bit down in the dumps on friday, so went to a friend's flat and drank rum until we passed out. i'll make the next one though. i saw fiddy and collins on hackney road lugging their rekkids down to 333!

did i mention ALTERN8 at bugged out yesterday? that cheered me up.

The Lex (The Lex), Monday, 20 February 2006 12:13 (twelve years ago) Permalink

hello london dancing people! any info on things to do techno-wise midweek 28th Feb (Tues) to 2nd March (Thurs) and Monday 6th or March 6th (Monday)? I will be passing through London on these dates and would like to sample your nightlife, etc. I hear there is a Stink party which is supposed to be fun on Mondays first of the month: is it happening on the 6th? I can't find any info online. help

Good Dog (Good Dog), Monday, 20 February 2006 14:10 (twelve years ago) Permalink

yes, stink is at the t-bar in shoreditch on the 6th...

toby (tsg20), Monday, 20 February 2006 14:22 (twelve years ago) Permalink

great, this is excellent timing! It looks like Michael Mayer is spinning on the 6th with Damian Lazarus & Margaret Dygas.

If any ILMers are making it out to this one I'd love to meet y'all. I'm in from Japan for few days/not a freakish internet weirdo/interested in the faces behind the names.

Also this is a free party. How do London clubs work? Do you have to get there early/be on guestlist to get in or avoid a queue?

Good Dog (Good Dog), Monday, 20 February 2006 14:39 (twelve years ago) Permalink

who is Margaret Dygas? i feel ignorant.

i've not been to stink, but my guess is that getting there early is advisable - anyone?

toby (tsg20), Monday, 20 February 2006 14:46 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Margaret Dygas? no idea. I just felt guilty only copy and pasting the other two.

Good Dog (Good Dog), Monday, 20 February 2006 14:52 (twelve years ago) Permalink

margaret dygas is a resident at back to yours and plays at fabric and has played in berlin and stuff. she was really good fun when i saw her, and also v cute. the tunes she played were in that category "dunno what this is but its wicked" - this category is massive for me cos i dont know anything except for brutalga square and a.n.other

ambrose (ambrose), Monday, 20 February 2006 15:34 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Toby - were you aware the Old Queen's Head round the corner from your house has just been done up by the Evil Fabric Overlord?* Roots Manuva apparently played there on Friday and various other people are promised... might be worth keeping an eye on.

*I for one welcome...

Matt DC (Matt DC), Monday, 20 February 2006 22:43 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Ooh, I am DJing at Lovelife on the 28th by the way. Come along and drink, London.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Monday, 20 February 2006 22:45 (twelve years ago) Permalink

yes matt, i am aware of that - roots manuva was only djing though, i think. i'm hoping they get really into this and end up having villalobos etc djing...

toby (tsg20), Tuesday, 21 February 2006 05:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

...and I am DJing at Lovelife this Monday

it will be a HIP HOP AND R&B SPECIAL

do come!

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 23 February 2006 16:24 (twelve years ago) Permalink

so, is anyone going to stink on monday? and does anyone know anything about a fabric afterparty on sunday? i saw a hint somewhere that it might be at the t-bar...

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 2 March 2006 08:33 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i'm not sure about stink on monday, but i'm almost certainly going to the bpitch night. dunno about afterparty though - i have to go to what looks like a semi-civilised birthday party on sunday...

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 2 March 2006 13:59 (twelve years ago) Permalink

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.

toby (tsg20), Friday, 3 March 2006 08:33 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Not sure if I can make Fabric as I'll be at a birthday party beforehand. It's in Farringdon and chucks out at 2 so Fabric might be an option, but it'll be rammed by then, won't it?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Friday, 3 March 2006 09:52 (twelve years ago) Permalink

toby, what time do you intend to get to fabric? do you have my number? i don't know when i'll get there yet...

The Lex (The Lex), Friday, 3 March 2006 14:46 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Hey -

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.

anyone know anything thats going on the 14th-16th? i have two friends from the states coming through and as far as im concerned they need to experience very large amounts of dirty techno.

emma cleveland (emma cleveland), Saturday, 4 March 2006 13:01 (twelve years ago) Permalink

oh p.s.

does that italodisco night still go on? i remember that being midweek.

emma cleveland (emma cleveland), Saturday, 4 March 2006 13:31 (twelve years ago) Permalink

hello all, i am in london for one night and i am definitely heading down to stink if anyone would like to hook up. with luck there will be a small gang of us. Im glad to hear that dygas is the business because lazarus sure wasnt when i heard him in Tokyo but i am willling to forgive anything to see mayer. /fanboy. How late will this thing go? I assumed it was all night but will it stop at 2 or so?

Good Dog (Good Dog), Saturday, 4 March 2006 19:05 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i think i've heard that it goes until 3. sorry for crying off fabric this evening - after november's villalobos/hawtin i can't face the fullness, and there was no way i was going to make that and stink anyway.

i'm going to stink, and so's tom (ledge). anyone else? lex, ricky?

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 5 March 2006 00:02 (twelve years ago) Permalink

for those of you who've been to stink before: what time is it sensible/necessary to arrive?

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 5 March 2006 13:55 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i couldn't persuade a single person to come to fabric with me, so i stayed in and got cooked for by my flatmate.

i don't know about stink - will see how i feel tomorrow. last time i went we were at 93 feet east until 11, then we wandered on down to the t bar, and it was a good time to arrive - if i go tomorrow i shall be doing the same. all people up for stink, 93ft east beforehand!
