Armed with an MPC 1000 and Roland Juno 6 and SH-09 synths, 10-David and Soccer96 keyboardist Danalogue's debut release has already received attention on Tom Robinson's BBC 6Music show, as well as airplay from Jon Phonics and Om Unit. The EP's crisp drums, twinkling lead lines and poo-your-pants bass have led to a great reception across a variety of musical circles. With no computers and minimal sequencing, this promises to be an electronic set with a difference.
P.Boro's duo Zedex's sun-drenched Zulu X-Ray marks an incredible follow up to last yearʼs debut High Crimes, with the duo delivering high energy disco-house. Zulu X-Ray boasts their strongest work to date; featuring the incendiary “Kiss Me While I Love You”, a track of cut up vocals, funky guitar riffs and powerful italo-basslines. The EPʼs title track “Zulu X-Ray” features a vocal collaboration with Brooklyn-based soul singer Sam Wilkes.
With live synths and electronics, you should expect Zedex's maximalist house sound to step up to the next level.
With influences ranging from hip hop to garage and grime, Deft's eclectic sound couples inventive beats with rich sound design. His first release came earlier this year in the form of space-funk banger "Paradise" on Disconnected Sounds's first vinyl release. His diversity will soon be demonstrated on the upcoming WotNot vs Metamimetic 12", with beats/bass on one side and house on the other. Get a taste of what's to come with his live Ableton set.
BoaBoa (Dark Party)
It's hard to describe what to expect from BoaBoa's DJ set without slathering him in superlatives. This jackin house don specializes and key figurehead of the Dark Party blog is known to travel far and wide playing alongside the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Hot Chip, Louis La Roche and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. As well as being one of the humblest DJs on the London scene, he's undoubtedly one of the most talented and charismatic performers you will ever encounter.
