Easter has fast approached leaving all the good weather behind, but there to many great djs in town and as the clocks go forward one hour we suggest our top picks this weekend, with a mix to check the vybe and also ticket links! We have music coming from Russia with Nina Kraviz, Detroit with Mike Huckaby, Techno from Ostgut Ton, Bicep in the house, Visionquest taking over the legendary Fabric, Jeff Mills presenting a new audio visual show at Lost, Make Me turn 5 with Dj Qu and Anthony Parasole and finally Half Baked Agency who now release records presenting Thomas Melchior for this gig & finally Bloc showcase L.I.E.S take your pick and K / D Keep It Deep.
Secretsundaze at the Electric Brixton, great production and on point house music with Nina Kraviz, Mike Huckaby, A Guy Called Gerald, Anthony Naples, Citizen, Youandewan & of course the residents Giles Smith & James Priestly, this should be a classy opening party.
Next up is Ostgut Ton presented by Broken & Uneven present 50 Weapons, quite simply put the best Techno artists from Berlin and not forgetting Robert Hood representing Detroit also alongside Marcel Fengler to add some muscle, Barker & Baumecker Live, Function DJ / Live Shed, Addison Groove & Benjamin Damage, this is going to be high energy fist pumping with a very interesting after hours planned to! the original venue could not sort there sheez out but the boys have got the next joint sorted so The Coronet it is check the web for full details!
We scoot across town to Dalston for Feel My Bicep at the underground rave den Dance Tunnel with Bicep & Jeremy Underground doing the ‘werk’ all night, nice neat venue with Funktion One soundsystem and two djs playing new and classic house cuts to feed the mood for something more intimate and casual but by no means less sweaty!
Saturday is Fabric day and for this occasion we have the Visionquest boys presenting there Thirteen concept with all three rooms curated and programmed by Seth Troxler, Lee Curtis, Shaun Reeves & Ryan Crosson in room one with some Live action provided by Wareika, Curators of Techno in room 2 & 3 including Kevin Saunderson, Kenny Larkin, Kyle Hall & Patrice Scott with some b2b action going on in room 2 & 3 this should bring the heat and more memorable nights at Londons most recognisable venue, with future forward thinking music with a heavy nod to the Detroit past!
Make Me turn five and for the very auspicious occasion they invite Dj Qu and Anthony Parasole over from the USA to take things deep and deconstructed. This one will be at the Hoxton Basement for some head nodding high brow beez. Dj Qu we have championed here at K / d Keep It Deep and with Anthony Parasole and the residents celebrating there coming of age, expect some of the finest deeper emotive moods and unheard material.
Next up we have Lost at Fire Vauxhall, please save some energy for this one as it will be a special evening with Jeff Mills doing his exclusive UK date, Moritz von Oswald who is mr Basic Channel, no more to be discussed here, Steve Bicknell party promoter, Plaid, Mario and more surprises. ‘Something In The Sky’ is the new audio visual concept Jeff Mills will present, a true exploration into sight and sound.
Next up and if you still have energy is the Half Baked Agency party presents Thomas Melchior, Mike Shannon, Nail, Robin Ordell & more guests to be announced, great venue great team, warm vybe, these boys have just started a record label so thing are sounding better then ever and also the Nail repress that has sold out everywhere on the Fear of Flying label will also be interesting to see.
Finally the last shindig we think you should check out is from the Bloc team presenting 1- parties over the summer and for this one moving over to the reliable Autumn Street Studios presenting L.I.E.S debut showcase with Ron Morelli, Steve Summers, Delroy Edwards & Svenghalisghost which is a very exciting roster to round off the bank holiday weekend.
