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: Woody XVIII
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.
