Woody’s Roundup

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)

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.

Woody’s Roundup

The first of our May Bank Holidays and, as expected, there is a Summer theme to the events planned. Cue the use of our favourite type of venue; the car park.

Last night the DeadFish Audio gang celebrated Mowgli’s birthday in the best way they know how, by throwing a huge party at Public Life. The secret guest was no less than Groove Armada, and the atmosphere was pretty electric as the crowd – hanging off every ledge in the place – joined Solo in singing Happy Birthday. I think there might be a few sore heads this morning.

There are so many amazing things coming up this weekend I might have to list them:
Trouble Vision at Corsica Studios with The 2 Bears and Toddla T, to launch Raf Daddy and Toddla’s new label Girls Music.
Dummy Mag birthday at The Macbeth with Stopmakingme

Planet Turbo at the Coronet with Tiga, Erol Alkan and Boys Noize
Chew the Fat and Urban Nerds present Londinium at Ewer Street Car Park with Fabio & Grooverider and A1 Bassline

Old Queen’s Head All Day-er with Evil Nine and New Young Pony Club

Eastern Electrics at the Union Car Park in Great Suffolk Street
The Revenge is performing at the Horse and Groom in Shoreditch – it’s a barbeque all day, then music until 3am. Not bad!

As if that wasn’t enough, the crazy crew at Fabric are repeating their marathon session On & On…& On from Saturday night until Monday night. I feel a little sick just thinking about it…

Here’s a few summery songs that have provided pleasure this week: Woody VIII
Classixx & Villains feat o8o – I’m on it
Still Going – Spaghetti Circus
Penguin Prison – The Worse It Gets (Dirty Disco Remix)
The Pipettes – Stop the Music (Justus Kohncke Kompakt Remix)
Lo-Fi-Fink – Marchin In (Astronomer Remix)
Disco Deviance – Don’t (Social Disco Club Remix)
Tiga – What You Need (A-Trak Remix)

And seeing as it’s Friday night, and this is excellent, here’s a bonus for you from Bang Gang’s Cassian. Cassian can do no wrong in my eyes, since I heard his remix of label mates Bag RaidersShooting Stars. This mix has a pretty-pretty ending, with Sing for Anna into the Mighty Mouse remix of The Living.
