Percolate & Mad Ferret and Troxy – This Week In London
“Percolate & Mad Ferret: Attack At The Premiere Starring Moodymann” This week Percolate have procured a heavy weight line up in the form of Moodymann, Space Dimension Controller, Christopher Rau, Krywald & Farrer, The Giraffe, The Pelly & Us and a Lobster Thermin showcase featuring; Route 8, Daze and label head Asquith. Now if you haven’t seen Moodymann live I highly recommend you do, his always been one of my personal favourites, he cemented that feeling when he performed one of the best sets I’ve ever seen at Dimensions 2012. For the people who were there when he was spitting up some knowledge, or whoever has seen this man live would know his ability to bring a crowd together is always a joyous occasion! Another favourite route 8, with his dreamy brand of house with touch perfect touch of electro, Route 8 is another highlight you shouldn’t miss. Studio 338 which has played host to a number of great parties, and it’s no wonder with its industrial feel and an awesome terrace to go with it.
Saturday night South London’s Troxy hosts “Art Of Dark – The Haunted Theatre with Praslesh (Raresh B2B Praslea) & Colin Chiddle”. This is place is going to be going off, been a big fan of that Romanian sound for a while and with Praslesh playing all night this night will be a great showcase of that Romanian house with its funky basslines vibes should keep this place rocking all night!
Special mention has to go to Oval space party, Friday night. “Oval Space Music x Figure Nacht with Len Faki, Roman Poncet, Regal” Len Faki a Berghain resident since the opening of the club and his ability to hold down the residency has demonstrated his ability to evolve over time but stick true to his sound. This also being a Figure label night this is bound to be an exhibition of the breath-taking techno!! We’ve been promised an extended Len Faki set, so if you love your techno this is one not to miss out on!
Early bird Ticket of the week
Another early bird suggestion for techno lovers “Cs13: Modern Love with Andy Stott, Demdike Stare, Millie & Andrea, Rainer Veil at Bloc (Autumn Street)!” Clock Strikes 13 have been running a series of events over the next coming months and this is one I have been really looking forward to. I’ve heard a lot about Andy Stott and his live shows, (I’ll do a write up closer to the time) but if that’s all I am going off you have to get these tickets!
Perlon’s releases are always something to get excited about and this is one that I really enjoyed, produced by Thomas Melchior, always been an admirer of his music and my favourite track on here is minimal house track “Meditation 4” ; Melchior Productions Ltd. – Meditations 4-6 – Perlon
