So it’s that wonderful time of year when Lovebox is upon us, and I’m pretty sure i’ll be ducking out of the office early for Busy Pictionary and Carte Blanche on the Ed Banger Stage and Metronomy and Beardyman on the Main Stage. And as for Sunday, most fun line-up ever?
Of course Lovebox means Lovebox afterparty, and the official soirees are at
Cargo with Aeroplane on 15th and Ministry on 16th, with Seth Troxler, Alexis Raphael and Joe and Will Ask. Elsewhere Ivan Smagghe is playing at Plastic People tonight with Tim Paris under their It’s A Fine Line moniker and The Nest invites Grum and Mighty Mouse for Scandalous.
Trouble Vision comes to Corsica Studios tomorrow with dOP and Will Saul, and A-Trak joins Mumdance at XOYO. We’ll be heading to The Lock for Kill Em All with Stopmakingme and Filthy Dukes. You just can’t go wrong with a free party soundtracked by some fine electro sounds.
Here’s a few tracks we’ve been listening to this week:
Beni – It’s a Bubble (Round Table Knights Remix)
Chromeo – When the Night Falls (Hercules and Love Affair Remix)
Douster – Carajo!
Nat Self – Mr Monkey (Rachel Barton Remix)
Only Children – Don’t Stop (Hey Champ Remix)
Mario Ochoa – Shadows
Bottin, Francisco & Rodion – BFR (Space)

Ivan Smagghe’s Beats In Space radio show drew my attention to Challenge, and their new EP Broken Clock. Challenge is house-heavyweights Pete Herbert and Tim Paris, who, along with Jef K founded the Marketing Music record label, ‘entirely dedicated to Tim’s music and crushes.’
Listen to the whole EP here –
Resident Advisor calls it ‘art-fucky house,’ and all three tracks are fantastic:
Challenge – Broken Clock EP
Ivan Smagghe – Planet Turbo Montreal 25 June 2010
These bones are tired bones, but that’s nothing getting back on it won’t fix. Tonight Corsica Studios hosts the fifth Ekstravaganza party down in Elephant & Castle with Ivan Smagghe and Prins Thomas, and tomorrow the Get Physical crew bring their own brand of dark and dirty to Fabric, with M.A.N.D.Y on the decks. However, this week’s winner is… Soul Clap presents the T Bar Closing Party at Scrutton Street Warehouse tomorrow. The lineup is sent from heaven, in the shape of Soul Clap bringing the efunk, Nicolas Jaar and Floating Points. Did someone say party?
In other news, the
Warehouse Project lineups for 2010 have been announced. It’s hard to put into words the excitement that comes from running to Euston after work, working ourselves up into a giggling mess on the 2 hour train journey, alighting in that wonderful city and following the surge of clubbers under the railway arches into the biggest undercover car park club you’ve ever been to. Book tickets here before they all sell out.
Here’s a few of the songs that have been feeding our stereos of late:
Soul Clap – Extravaganza
Ladyhawke – Paris is Burning (Cut Copy remix)
Junior Boys – Teach Me How To Fight
Crystal Castles – Vietnam (Midnight Conspiracy Remix)
Matthew Dear – Soil to Seed
Green Velvet – Shake & Pop feat. Kid Sister
Diskokaine – Hall of Shame (Sidechains Remix)
The Count and Sinden‘s Mega Mega Mega album is released on Domino Records 23 August, and this track After Dark featuring Mystery Jets has been on repeat this week. A nice little dancing video for a Friday afternoon.
