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 6th October 2017, Corsica Studios
Move D / DJ Sprinkles / Willow / The Pilotwings / Mr Solid Gold / Park Ranger / OK Jones / Rolfie
One of London’s best loved club nights turns nine with a huge line up taking over all three rooms of Corsica Studios. Trouble Vision may have spread their party starting wings to other venues across the capital, but Corsica remains their home. The King of Disco aka Move D will headline room 1 bringing a cosmic journey fired by his record bag that would give Mary Poppins a run for her money. He’s supported by Manchester producer Willow. The inimitable DJ Sprinkles runs proceedings in The Colombian aka room 3 with Lyon’s finest The Pilotwings heading up room 2. Keep an eye out for discounted hearing protection available on the night courtesy of the #AllEars campaign, a new initiative from Watch The Hype and Alpine Hearing Protection.
Saturday 7th October 2017, Five Miles
On Monday we were blessed with news of the long awaited follow up to 2012’s Jaiolong, Dan Snaith’s first album as Daphni. Otherwise known as the front man of Caribou, Snaith will release Joli Mai this Friday 6th October. In celebration, Eat Your Own Ears have announced two extended sets from the man himself. One of said sets will take place at Tottenham venue Five Miles. A small dark room with a killer sound system with a bright and spacious bar alongside, Five Miles is one of London’s best new venues. Expect to hear material from the new LP, mostly made up on extended versions of tracks heard on Daphni’s recent Fabriclive mix.
Friday 13th October 2017, Bussey Building
Ben UFO x Pangaea x Pearson Sound / Beatrice Dillon / Bruce / Call Super / Josey Rebelle / Objekt
A line up of epic proportions as the golden trio celebrate 10 years of Hessle Audio, taking over all three rooms of Bussey Building. Sound Service provide the main room sound install on the night, where Ben UFO, Pangaea and Pearson Sound will play together. Bringing together a stellar selection of dance music’s most treasured selectors, this will doubtless be a very fitting celebration of ten years of Hessle Audio. Expect bass heavy club music in all its forms.
Friday 20th October 2017, Hoxton Basement
Pender Street Steppers
Inner Totality Family make moves from SE to NE as they venture out of Rye Wax and into Hoxton Basement. Following shows with the likes of O’Flynn, Donna Leake and DJ Fett Burger, they’re stepping things up a notch and inviting Vancouver’s Pender Street Steppers down. The Mood Hut affiliates always bring warmth, groove and blissed out inclusivity to their dancefloors with lush selections laced with bright and breezy jazz and soul.
Friday 27th October 2017, Mangle E8
Space Dimension Controller (Live) / Paranoid London (DJ) / Krywald & Farrer / Ceri / Jive Talk
Percolate return with another extraordinary Halloween party, heavy on the extra. This year they set up shop in Hackney venue Mangle, bringing intergalactic wizardry in the form of a headline live show from Space Dimension Controller. An immersive laser experience will run throughout the club and dressing up is absolutely encouraged. The dress code is Retro-Reflective, so make of that what you will. Paranoid London play a rare DJ set with support from Percolate residents Krywald & Farrer and Ceri. Jive Talk complete the bill. Don’t sleep on this one as tickets always sell out in advance.

Taken from Lunice’s new album CCCLX, ‘Drop Down’ features New York rapper Le1f and draws inspiration from the world of ballroom.
‘Shaded’ – Airhead (Hemlock Recordings, September 2017)
Eerie spacey melodies and off kilter drums make way for trance synths in this strange and reverberating rave cut.
‘Modulation (Album MixX)’ – Mike Dunn (moreaboutmusic, September 2017)
Mike Dunn releases his first album in almost 30 years and he is not messing about, ‘Modulation’ is big room, hands in the air house music with glorious flecks of acid.
