Preview: Decay Records Five Year Anniversary

decay fb banner

This November London based Decay Records celebrate 5 amazing years of sharing beautiful music amongst likeminded people, carrying their passion for delivering high quality dubby grooves. Moving the entirety of the focus away from trends and hype, showing faith in music they believe in. Saturday 3rd November the Decay family have curated an intimate affair underneath the arches of, Rolling Stock.

 

The artists on offer on the night fully live up to the expectation of an occasion such as this, seeing old friends and new artists come together. Christian Burkhardt will be bringing his live performance to the heart of Shoreditch. Someone who does not need much introduction, due to his reputation for slaving away immersing himself amongst his technology. Whether working on other parties releases or on his own personal imprint, Burkhardt’s inner ability to create a groove remains at the forefront. A live and rare set amongst this intimacy means this will surely be one for the books. Two back-to-back sets will be taking place on the anniversary including Romanian maestro Mihai Popoviciu and house production machine, James Dexter. Both artists will bring their flavours together, with only one possible outcome. Music to make you move.

 

The second back to back comes from the brains behind it all, Davide Decay and Max. Davide saw a vision five years ago, and it was called Decay records, and for him to share his music on this milestone will be special within itself. Featuring alongside friend of the camp, Max. Rounding off the bill will be Lenka and Sagia. A concoction of sounds, to create a vibe we have become so familiar with from the Decay Records team over the years, an evening of friends old and new coming together.

Hope to see you under the arches!

epizode meoko cover

After the huge success of their recent instalments, Epizode have prepared another 11 days of unbelievable music and art bliss, in a location that is nothing short of amazing. From 28th December – 08 January 2019 on the magic island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam a series of day and night parties have been arranged in custom built areas, and beaches on the coast. Paradise, right?

With a lineup of heavy hitters already under their belt including Praslesh, Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler, Nina Kraviz, Sonja Moonear and Zip, you know it is going to be special. These will be accompanied by serious selectors varying from local, and international artists. Some names you might not know, but will be sure to familiarise yourself with after the experience. DOTT, Hibiya Line, Ouissam, Rifain, Sofia Rodina, and Sunju Hargun. Denis Kaznacheev will appear again, if anybody was there last year they will understand the atmosphere the Siberian artist can produce.

Full Line up Below:

epizode aug2018

The people and friends pulling the strings behind the Epizode are a true reflection, and inspiration to the scene, with an underlying passion to entertain and arrange diverse experiences with a true attention to detail. There was a social media storm after the last Epizode (everyone has seen the cardboard cut outs of Ricardo last time), and the crew are sure to come back even bigger and better this year. If you are considering a trip to Asia, it is surely worth a thought to tie this in with your trip; in our eyes, we cannot see a better new years extravaganza.

 

Pioneers of the game, combined with up and coming quality. Who is ready for the next Epizode? We certainly are.

And at the beginning of September the OFF venue is home of the well known party series *SORTED*, a project of Common sense booking... Normally the partys are taking place at Berlins famous CLUB DER VISIONAERE or at the sister venue HOPPETOSSE but this time they take it a step further with a 24 hour madness on 2 floors and on the Sunday during the day with an nice open air spot just in front of the building right on the river…

 

The line up speaks for its self…Pretty much all of the artists are well known from their residencies at
CLUB DER VISIONAERE BERLIN and their top positioning not just only in Berlins underground music scene. The event will run for 24hours starting on 01.09 at 10pm until the next day, 02.09 10pm.

Starting September The Right Way w/ Hypnotic School Day Festival

hypnotic fb banner meoko

As we make our final touches on our summer party calendar, we take a closer inspection at what Hypnotic School are serving up in a few weeks time in Barcelona. Starting September the right way.

The Hypnotic organisation pride themselves on proving how much art, music and culture can be combined to make a positive influence on people’s lives, and on September the 1st they will be demonstrating this at an extremely special location. Skate Park BDN plays host to the day festival, an off-key venue located next to the beach, transformed by specialised production staff to enhance the experience.

Music on the day will be nothing short of amazing, with artists of the highest order on the bill to perform in this perfect setting. The special guest for the occasion will be tINI, a fitting choice for the atmosphere of the day at the skate park. Alt. Society, Cab Drivers, and revered selector, Julian Perez, will join her next to the beach for a day of distinguished sounds. Performing live sets will be the fantastic Ion Ludwig, a raw and natural talent with technology, and exceptional trio Premiesku will be there to take you on a trip on the Funktion One sound system.

Cab Drivers MC

It does not end there. To make this experience well rounded there will be various movements located around the venue. Art exhibitions, art performances including live painting, and personal gifts from the Hypnotic School camp. An underlying passion for the brand is to keep vinyl culture alive, so there will be a wide selection records available to buy in the on-site vinyl store. A nice touch for the day is, that party goers will be able to come and go back and forth to the beach as much as they like, so if you need to rest those legs the beach or chill out area will be available throughout. Also taking a focus on gastronomy, and ecological sustainability HS will be providing their own food and one off refreshments for the day session.

There will be a live stream available for those who cannot make the event, but we highly recommend you take the trip and be hypnotised in Barcelona. More than just a party, a full participation for attendees with a sound track like no other.

Enjoy the best of both worlds, urban and nature all in one sitting.
