Woody’s Roundup

Wow, one pops off to the beach for two weeks and comes back to a world exploded with music. Some absolute greats from Yuksek and The Magician (check out The Magician‘s remix of Yuksek‘s On A Train from the EP of the same name), and Mustang have given us two absolute beauts, with their remix of Golden Bug‘s Sex Beat from the Magia Potagia EP on Gomma, and their remix of Monarchy‘s I Won’t Let Go from the EP of the same name new from Moda Music. Made to Play have made a limited vinyl pressing of Round Table Knights remixes, with contributions from L-Vis 1990 and Homework, and that happy santa claus of techno Claude Von Stroke has remixed Girl Unit‘s 2010 banger Wut, which has made EVERYONE pretty excited, but no release date yet from Night Slugs. Finally Aeroplane releases My Enemy from the We Can’t Fly album, and even if you own the album the EP is worth it for the Rex The Dog remix alone.

Compilations are coming thick and fast too, with Moda Compilation Volume 1 out 23 May, including the first original material from Jaymo & Andy George, starting with their Night Music EP, and last week Lee Foss and Jamie Jones added another string to their bows with the first volume of the Hot Waves compilation, released of course on their own Hot Creations label. Chilly Gonzales brings us ‘orchestral rap’ withThe Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales album on 6 June on Gentle Threat/ Schmooze, and Toddla T‘s new single Take It Back is out on the mighty Ninja Tune on 23 May; a forerunner to his debut album to be released on the label later this year.

Obviously you’ll be spending all your money on these new releases so I’m going to save you some clubbing cash this weekend and tell you of two pretty epic free parties. Tonight, That Mixmag Thing #13 is at the Queen of Hoxton with Oliver Lang, Super Recordings Showcase and my favourites Riotous Rockers (their April mix was a joy as usual), and tomorrow Field Day host a free party with Omar S, Caspar C and Midland at XOYO. Well done all.

And as for this from Turbo on 30 May: if you don’t know what it is, you should…

There’s nothing like that feeling on a Friday when you’re looking down the barrel of another sleepless, fun-packed weekend.

Things get a little bit deeper tonight with Maceo Plex and Jozif headlining for Slowpoke (venue TBC) and KiNK playing a live set for Dollop at the Citipost Building out east. Riton and Doorly get down and dirty at Fabric, and Hercules and Love Affair take over Village Underground.

Saturday brings in the superstar that is Ricardo Villalobos at Fabric, alongside the 2020 guys who are hosting Room 2 with Simon Baker, Ralph Lawson and Glimpse in attendance.

Sunday is officially the new Thursday, although Thursdays seem to be going VERY strong, and special commendation on that front goes to Joe and Will Ask?‘s new night Vikings at one of our favourite bars in Spitalfields – Gramaphone on Commercial Street. I’ve always had adventures there and last night was soundtracked by Joe and Will Ask? and Eskimo Twins. A pretty stonking line up for a Thursday, and it’s being repeated every second thursday of the month.

Counter Culture was pretty much my perfect club night last weekend, and tonight they’ve got Night Slugs label night, with Girl-Unit joining Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990. We’re off to Roundhouse for Chromeo and Midnight Juggernauts, then the after party at XOYO. We’ll be popping into Vogue Fabrics on the way home for Public House with the first of their Residents Fiasco series. Tomorrow Trailer Trash team up with Nuke Em All for Trash Em All at XOYO with Zombie Nation live and A1 Bassline, and new night You Again! starts at Question Mark bar in Stoke Newington.

As for Sunday, free party with Busy P and DJ Mehdi? Yes please. So I guess the moral of this story is: Go Out. Every night.
