Thursday 12th July
Marco Del Horno & Last Japan
Purveyors of the finest vibrations congregate at the XO Bar this Thursday to provide a welcome alternative to the dank outdoor vibes killing our festival buzz. Techno temptress Nicole Moudaber tops this month’s most prestigious line-up, she’ll be laying down a deep, one hour, sleazy house set ahead of somethinksound’s most exciting signing, Eliphino. Eyes Down event organiser Ice 9 will be warming-up proceedings with a bass-fuelled barrage of dark, fidget laced beats. Rinse DJs Marco Del Horno and Last Japan will go head-to-head for an epic sound clash, buzzing with both boys’ brazen beat-matching abilites. Ending the night on a inevitable high, Hundred2ONE record label owner and widely admired producer James Morreale aka Shox will then be dropping heavyweight kicks and snares until the sound gets cut and we get kicked out. Fridays are for feeling rough, come and get fresh with us next Thursday.
