Woody’s Roundup


This weekend is all about Sunday, as Secretsundaze have another of their legendary all-dayers at the Bussey Building in Peckham, with Joy Orbison. However, by no means should you rest your little dancing toes on Friday and Saturday, particularly as Catz n Dogz are in town, and that just wouldn’t be right. So tomorrow they’re having a guest-list only party in a secret East London location. You might be able to squeeze your names on if you’re quick. Tonight Big In Japan host Todd Terje at the Queen of Hoxton, and Mowgli joins Spencer Parker for Go Deeper at The Nest.

There are so many tracks at the moment that we’ve heard out and about and we’re patiently waiting for, but it seems releases are months away. Can everyone hurry up please?
New Navy – Zimbabwe New Navy have just released with the mighty Future Classic, and are tipped for big things.
Lazydisco – More Tigers (Coupons remix)
Katy B – Easy Please Me (Caspa remix) I’m adding this as a substitute for Claude Von Stroke’s Grizzl-fayah remix of this track, which is IMMENSE and out at some point in the distant future. We wait…
Hey Champ – Too Hot
Penguin Prison – Fair Warning (Goldroom Remix Dub)
Diddy Dirty Money – I Hate That You Love Me (Sinden Edit)
Junior Boys – Banana Ripple (Stay+ remix)
All together: Woody 55.zip

A notable preview this week is from the lovely Stopmakingme, teaming up with The Deadstock 33s for the Gravity EP on Tigersushi. Excellent collaborators on an excellent label, and the title track in particular is bloody great.

Woody’s Roundup


Well pinch-punch-first-of-the-month, which as usual means that there are way too many good nights and not enough time. And as for you with the birthdays, there are DJs to see!

So, tonight, go old school with Marshall Jefferson at Fairchild (car park rave), or go see Waifs & Strays for free at That Mixmag Thing #15 at Queen of Hoxton. Oooh and I’ve just noticed Sishi Rösch is playing at the Horse and Groom for Coconut Ritz. Miguel Puente drew my attention to him and together they’re pretty unstoppable (more dates for both of them in London please!). To give you an example, here’s a little video from one of their Sonar appearances. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to post this as it sounds sweeeeeeet, and I’d pretty much kill to see either and both of them play anywhere at the moment.

Hessle Audio are at Fabric, with Pearson Sound and Joy Orbison, and you could keep it Fabric (we are) by attending the mammoth 5 Years of Leftroom there tomorrow night, with Matt Tolfrey and the Leftroom crew in Room 2 and Hot Natured (Lee Foss and Jamie Jones) in Room 3. We had great fun at Soul Clap’s 90s Jam with Lee Foss at the Star of Bethnal Green on Wednesday, and in between the two Lee’s off to play in Naples, at Gottwood Festival in Wales and DC10 in Ibiza. He was asking anyone on Facebook if he could borrow a pillow…
Glimpse and Miguel Campbell are playing The CAMP for Mutant Disco, Stopmakingme and The Deadstock 33s are playing the Lemonade Launch Party at The Nest, and if you’re headed towards the slightly more hardcore then Spectrum have their Summer Warehouse Party at Ewer Street Car Park with Nero, Kissy Sell Out, Chase and Status and Sinden.

I always tell myself I’m going to get out of the city in July as much as possible, and it never happens, simply because the July line ups are ridiculous for the whole month every single year. 2011 is heading that way too, with Nicolas Jaar coming live two days in a row at Fabric at the end of the month, Lovebox bringing everyone I love into Victoria Park, and The Nest continuing a fantastic booking job, with Julio Bashmore and Riton next weekend. Bloody good work London.

Bassheads – Is Anybody Out There (Greg Wilson Edit) – a walk down memory lane. Huge thanks to Greg for giving this away on soundcloud this week
Joakim – Forever Young (Discodeine Remix)
Jacques Greene – Lay It Down (Nacho Lovers Remix) the original of this is worth your pennies fo sho.
Theophilius London – Flying Overseas (Soul Clap EFunk Remix)
Toddla T – Watch Me Dance (SebastiAn Remix) Also worth your money for the whole release as all the remixes are great.
Lucky Paul – Thought We Were Alone (Gang Colours Remix)
Rainbow Arabia – Blind (Salva Remix) Rainbow Arabia have just announced a summer tour including the Shoreditch 1,2,3,4 festival next week 9th July.

So…. fancy a little dance do ya?

Tonight Simian Mobile Disco are playing a DJ set at The Nest with Rachel Barton for Lively, and it’s Dollop‘s 7th birthday series at XOYO with Scuba and Benji B. Till Von Sein is playing a secret East London location with James Teej for Slowpoke.

It’s RA‘s tenth anniversary, so to celebrate they’re throwing ten RA X parties with epic lineups in ten cities all over the place, including a mystery guest ‘X.’ We’re lucky enough to be attending at Sonar next week, and the one over here is tomorrow night at Cable. A Night With…Heidi heads to Bar A Bar in Stoke Newington, and Trouble Vision continues being truly great, with Tensnake and Lee Foss at Corsica Studios.

This week’s tracks are GOOOOOOOOOD:
Deadstock 33s – The Devil’s Paintbrush (Eskimo Twins Remix) My favourite mix too, in 320 goodness. The whole release is out on Bang Gang today. Whoop!
Metronomy – The Bay (Stopmakingme Remix) YES
Carte Blanche – The Molecules
Chris Malinchek – The Fourth
Kris Menace vs Emil – Walking On The Moon (Xinobi Remix)
Grum – Runaway (Nightriders Remix)
Disclosure – I Love… That You Know They’re so young and make amazing music beyond their years. We really enjoyed seeing them at Kill Em All at the Lock Tavern last Sunday, and the Carnival/I Love… That You Know EP is out on Monday on Transparent. This track really is very good.

Exclusively Judas

It’s been a while since an Eskimo Twins EP has graced the inner-ears of One From The Vaults, and we’ve been getting excited about this for some time. Following on from Horror in November, the Judas EP is out on Wax:On on 6 September (on Beatport from 23 August).

Nathan and Tim have been backwards and forwards to Ibiza for most of the summer for their Reclaim the Dancefloor residency, and while they’ve been away both Judas on the A-side and Droid on the flip have been creeping into DJ sets we’ve heard out and about, as well as Droid being hammered out by Kissy Sell Out on Radio 1 this week. With such differing ancestry as Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder, Eskimo Twins productions contain a signature melodic component with a heavy heavy addition of mangled metal and bass, which gives us a little clue to what might be in store here. And of course, both Judas and Droid are characteristically bleepy and filthy-dirty.

Remixes are provided by my personal favourite Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s turning bleeps to claps for a disco re-rub, alongside Turbo‘s Matt Walsh, heavier grinds from Ado and RipTidE, and emotive hazy beats from The Sonic Emporium.

We’ve got Judas and Droid in full 320kpbs glory for you to download at the very small price of one tweet.
