All the dance music news you missed this weekend
Adam Beyer & Ida Engberg Blew Up The Box
Husband and wife duo, and techno royalty, Adam Beyer & Ida Engerg almost brought our roof down with an all night session of punishing techno. With queues round the block we tried to get as many techno fans as possible into our club. Fans we treated to a no-nonsense masterclass in beats, complimented by a specially installed light show, which saw us cram as many lazers as possible into the roof of The Box. It was a big night for all involved and we'd like to thank everyone that came down and made it what it was.
Adverse Weather Causes Cancellation Of Ultra Europe Day One
Ultra Europe, which takes place in the town of Split, Croatia, was forced to cancel its opening day due to "dangerous wind conditions". The festival hinted that tehy may be forced to take action earlier in the day, writing on their official Facebook page that: "Your safety is our main priority and we are working to ensure the event is prepared and ready for everybody upon the gates opening". However as conditions failed to improve, they were forced to go nuclear and cancel day one. Lukcily a number of the scheduled acts agreed to perform early on day two to avoid too much disappointment.
Ricardo Villalobos Forced To Miss Two London Appearances On Health Grounds
The Chilean superstar was forced to miss a double outing in London over the weekend after advise from his doctors. Villalobos, known for his extended remixes and marathon sets, had been due to play Lovebox on Saturday evening, followed by Fabric in the early hours of Sunday morning. However, in a statement released on Saturday he apologised to his fans and highlighted that this was an important gig for him - his first festival outing in London - but that both "body and doctors are saying no". We wish Ricardo a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in the capital soon.
LCD Soundsystem Brought All the Feels At Lovebox
LCD Soundsystem made their long-awaited return to London on Saturday night. Frontman James Murphy was in top form, joking with the crowd and at one point instigating a rendition of "Happy Birthday" to drummer, Pat Mahoney. But despite the laid back onstage attitude, the band brought a tour de force of their emotionally charged catalogue. Highlights, of course, included "Losing My Edge", "Someone Great" and shivers-inducing closer, "All My Friends".
