A monthly feature in which we move out of the live space and into the club, handpicking five parties and five releases worth your attention.
Friday 10th November 2017, The Yard
Eclair Fifi / anu / Lora
Room for Rebellion raises money for the Abortion Support Network; an organisation run by volunteers to support Irish and Northern Irish women in gaining safe abortions here in England. This is the third instalment of the London series. With previous guests including Shanti Celeste and Saoirse, this time they’ve invited LuckyMe affiliate Eclair Fifi to headline proceedings. Rhythm Section’s anu and Livin’ Proof’s Lora support.
Saturday 11th November 2017, The Flying Dutchman
Lone / London Modular Alliance / Ste Roberts / Cedric Maison / Ivory Ivory / Tom Merner
From the team behind The Somerley Tea Party Festival, Art Peckham is a new series of parties held at The Flying Dutchman, a low ceilinged Camberwell basement with a house party vibe. Last month they hosted PillowTalk’s album launch and this month they step things up a notch by inviting Lone down to play an intimate show in the 300 capacity venue. He’s supported by London Modular Alliance, whose modular synthesisers will surely be a joy to watch in such a small space.

Lorenzo Senni (live) / S.O.N.S / Lanark Artefax (live) / Gabber Eleganza Hakke Show / Body Motion DJs

The Italian with a penchant for turning classic trance inside out and on its head plays alongside Seoul artist S.O.N.S, a live show from up and coming Glaswegian producer Lanark Artefax, the Gabber revivalists Gabber Eleganza Hakke Show and last but not least NTS mainstays Body Motion DJs. Expect a thrilling and extraordinary night of electronic music from the self-titled rave voyeur.
