I’ve been sitting on this one for a couple of days and for that I apologise, as it’s really damn good. Something for everyone in there, a bit of italo, a bit of jackin’ house, a bit of hip hop, a bit of electro. The C90s monthly mixes are always something I look forward to, and this one doesn’t disappoint. December Chart Mix by TheC90s

Once in a while it’s important to take a little time to relax of a weekend, particularly in between the final gasps of the late summer and the madness that is Christmas party season (which, as we all know, is well underway by November). So we’re officially taking tonight off.
PJU have been doing some sterling work for a while now, in partcular the stomping Blockhead and their mammoth remix of In Flagranti’sWorse For Wear, so I was pleased to see the latest release Chimes pt.1 is out next Friday 29 July on kleinTanz. I was even more pleased to see that remixes come from Golden Bug and Say Yes to Another Excess (the production duo of Dan Stopmakingme Avery and Danny C90s Ashenden).
Watch the video here:
They’re currently on tour playing all over Australia, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to hear them play this out and about in London town, but in the mean time here’s a Summer mixtape and a free download.
It’s that middle-of-the-month syndrome where you’ve got to the point already where you can’t afford to eat, and strangely; when you most need to stay in and conserve funds and energy, you somehow end up blowing your last pennies on the biggest dirtiest rave-ups. I want to say a big thank you to the Queen of Hoxton for easing the pocket with a great rooftop opening party last night. The brand new roof space is ready for the summer and we partied like it was 1999.
And let us not forget the mighty Record Store Day tomorrow across the country. Last year was steaming hot weather and we trundled merrily along to Pure Groove (sadly online only now, but still worth a visit) for a few drinks while we listened to and purchased some good music. Sounds pretty perfect to me, and there are events all day at Rough Trade East and West, among many others.
NB: Rapidshare has taken to showing people a little message saying encrypted downloads cannot be started unless you upgrade to RapidPro. You can still say no to this and download as usual with the ‘slow download’ option. Ignore them: stick it to The Man.
This weekend is another one of those where we’d like to be in three different cities, and three different clubs at once, but instead we’re settling for a three day party, which will probably spill over into Monday and make pre-Halloween zombies of us all. Worth it? YES.
It’s been a tough couple of weeks and we all deserve a pint and a pat on the back. Don’t we? Relax, put your feet up, wear patterned knitwear, smoke a pipe, grow a beard and sip the amber nectar with the likes of Marbeya Sound, Hot Toddy, The Glimmers and Villa, all arranged perfectly by our favourites The C90s. It’ll warm those cockles like a winter cuddle.

Well, it’s all been going down on the clubbing front this week, and it isn’t even the weekend yet. So XOYO, the much-hyped new two-room Shoreditch club, wasn’t ready in time to open on Wednesday, to much embarrassment mainly due to the short notice of it all, but they’re moving the opening to the HUGE Bugged Out! night this Saturday to launch the Friendly FiresSuck My Deck compilation, with Simian Mobile Disco, L-Vis 1990 and our friends Eskimo Twins. Also tomorrow night Community at Plan B brings Floating Points and Moodymann to Brixton. RA tickets are all sold out though so act fast if you want to head South this weekend.
We like midweek clubbing. It makes us feel like we’ve cheated The Man a bit, and by the time the weekend comes round we can do it all again. We’ve got a little party we’d like you all to come to next Thursday 23rd at Public Life – hosted by our excellent friends at Brilliantine. The atmosphere in Public Life is just electric – maybe something about clubbing in an old public toilet just brings out the dancer in us all? Providing the soundtrack is Monatuk, What Kind Of Breeze Do You Blow?, and The C90s.
