After a hugely successful event last year, EXIT and Ministry of Sound join forces again to bring you another stand out party in the clubbing calendar.
Headlining the night on Saturday 20th June is James Ford and Jas Shaw aka Simian Mobile Disco; two men who burst on to the scene with their 2007 album Attack Decay Sustain Release, which garnered rave reviews and firmly established SMD as leaders of the acid house-rock-crossover scene. And if their latest album, Whorl, is anything to go by, SMD are showing no signs of slowing down. Whorl was written over the course of three days using only analogue synthesizers and a sequencer and was also largely recorded in the Californian dessert in front of a live audience. The music itself betrays this, capturing the wide-eyed energy with which they approached the album. Now they are set to return to the dancefloor. Why not join them?
SMD will be supported by NYC’s Kim Ann Foxman, notorious for blessing crowds with her raw electronic beats. Following recent collaborations with artists such as Maya Jane Coles and Ron Jason, and the release of her remix of “Sunset” by The XX on Young Turks, she is now back in the studio, and we can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for her.
wAFF will be joining the others in the box with his distinctive blend of techno and deep house. Since he started laying down beats at the age of seventeen, he has released tracks on Hot Creations, Hottrac and Cocoon. Last month he dropped his latest EP, Fat Gash, which received raving reviews. Give it a listen.
Next up is SE7EN, bringing with him the latest in underground house and techno. Over the last couple of years he has remained in popular demand, playing at festivals like Exit, Reading and Leeds, and Glastonbury. He has also held down several residencies in London, and sure knows how to get a party going.
Over in 103, disco rules with Chesus and Purple Disco Machine, so tighten up your weaves and put on your weekend-best, because this is one party you don’t want to miss out on.
