A monthly feature in which we move out of the live space and into the club, handpicking a handful of parties and releases worth your attention.
Friday 2nd November, Bussey Building
Kamixlo / TSVI (‘Inner Worlds LP’ Album Launch) / Prestige Pak / Englesia b2b Yazzus / Tarquin (live) / Don Sinini (live) / NKC b2b Lockhart / Loom / Wallwork / Jossy Mitsu b2b Riz La Teef
Acid Fantasy takeover two floors of Bussey for their biggest party to date. Expect spooky garms and experimental percussion as Acid Fantasy co-founder TSVI celebrates the release of his new LP Inner Worlds, out soon on Nervous Horizon. Bala Club head honcho Kamixlo also plays, with support from south London party starters Prestige Pak and Englesia, one third of UNITI. Upstairs, hard drum is the name of the game; expect a blistering b2b from NKC and Lockhart.
Friday 9th November, Moth Club
Tama Sumo & Lakuti
Celebrating 10 years of Berlin’s Uzuri Recordings, Tama Sumo and label founder Lakuti bring their Your Love party to the shiny confines of Hackney’s Moth Club. Your Love is a celebration of love, love on the dance floor, and the rich and varied palette that these two artists bring to the fore. A partnership in and out of the booth, expect soulful cuts tailor made for the dance floor, inspired by the sounds of Detroit and Chicago, from a duo whose synergy is completely infectious.
Saturday 17th November, E1 London
Objekt b2b Call Super
Objekt and Call Super, aka a pairing whose back to back sets have pretty much become the stuff of legend. Presented by Percolate, and with artwork designed by Call Super himself, on 17th November the pair will take the helm for eight hours at Wapping venue E1. It might sound cliché but with these two you really can expect the unexpected. They’ll explore the breadth and depth of their record collections; celebrating dance music in all its weird and wonderful forms.
Friday 23rd November, The Glove That Fits
Secret Guest / Jaye Ward / Ariane V
Rhythm Sister are turning two! To celebrate the collective are hosting a party at The Glove That Fits, and they’ve invited a secret special guest down to headline. Close affiliates Jaye Ward and Ariane V will support, and from 6pm their Floor is Yours showcase will invite former participants from the Rhythm Sister DJ workshops to step behind the booth. All proceeds will go to charity and it’s going to be a true family affair – what’s not to love?
Friday 30th November, Phonox
Night Slugs: Bok Bok / L-Vis 1990 / Manara
Príncipe: DJ Marfox / Nidia Minaj
Phonox shines a light on two labels that represent the best of club music in their respective capital cities. Off the back of some heavy tenth birthday celebrations, London’s beloved Night Slugs pull up represented by label founders Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 with Manara. For Lisbon, the self-titled “ghetto sound of Lisbon” lands in London courtesy of Príncipe figureheads DJ Marfox and Nidia Minaj. Definitely do not sleep on this one.

Snappy house with a sassy vocal from Physical Therapy and Michael Magnan.
Local Group – Laser Dome (Ritual Poison)
A hardcore-flavoured ode to the Laser Dome, the electrifying stage at Field Maneuvers.
Finn – Dance Music Has Betrayed Us All (Local Action)
Finn just told us his five big Friday records, and here’s a sixth courtesy of his latest on Local Action.
Omo Frenchie – Bêtise (Coby Sey Rework) (Cotch International)
Whities affiliate Coby Sey transforms Omo Frenchie’s vibrant original into a murky dance floor cut.
Seb Wildblood – Grab The Wheel (all my thoughts)
Deliciously bright house off a new EP from the Church head honcho.
