Ed Banger Record’s 7th Birthday Bash @ The


The uber-cool French electro label certainly knows how

to throw a banging birthday bash. Boasting a ridiculous line-up plucked from their own DJ elite, this was a night of epic proportions. Those lucky enough (or keen enough) to get in, witnessed slamming sets from SebastiAn, Breakbot and Fake Blood. But label owner Busy P smashed it hardest of all with tune after massive tune, seam- lessly mixed into a wonky wonderland of world-class electro. Throw in the impec- cable organisation, sick sound system, crazy laser shows and super-friendly crowd, and this one’s bang on track to go down as legendary.


Metalheadz has a new home, Cable. The venue gave the

night the justice it deserved, with an amazing soundsystem and big vibes throughout. DJs S.P.Y, Instra:Mental, Bailey, Goldie and Spor all gracing the decks in room one and Icicle, Bailey and The Beat Assasins playing alternative sets in the bar. Ed Rush came on and tore the place apart, the tune selection was exactly what was needed for a Metalheadz night. However as always headliner Andy C arrived and something special happened. He played a set for the heads that knew, pulling out old classics mixed with newer rollers which went down a treat, the whole club was jumping, and Andy certainly looked like he was enjoying himself! Amazing night, won’t forget it for a long time.

Renegade Hardware

Renegade is a night for those who know, quite a niche take

Tranzmission @ Alexandra Palace

Tranzmission is an indoor fes- tival beyond words. So many ravers under one roof and

so much going on that your mind will never settle in one space. This event was perfect to top off the Easter weekend- er and for those who needed a change of scenery from the normal London clubs. A great line-up was matched by the majestic size of the 4 main hanger size arenas Alexandra Palace has to offer. To round it all off I jumped on a ride and topped up on that adrenalin to the words ‘Scream if you wanna go faster!!’

Eastern Electrics

Ellen Allien, Shackleton, Disco Bloodbath, Dan Beaumont, Damon Martin, DJ Sneak, Omar S, Geddes...these are just some of the names for the Eastern Electrics May Bank Holiday line up.

on a drums night, however Area the home of Hardware was absolutely rammed. Full of a mixture of people each one there to celebrate 15 years of Renegade Hardware at its best. With the likes of Fierce, Maldini, Optical, Doc Scott, Loxy and Ink all in room one and the Critical family in room two, we were spoilt for choice. However the man of the night was Icicle who managed to play one of the best sets I have heard at a Hardware yet, every single person in the crowd was on their feet and vibing off of great mixes and even better tune selection which concluded an unforgettable night once again.

Red Bull Music Academy

closing bash

2Many DJ’s. The XX. Friendly Fires. In Shoreditch. For a

tenner. The finale of Red Bull Music Academy’s five-week live music stint was one of those rare, unmissable treats. In fact, many people did risk missing it. With tickets only released a week beforehand, no publicity and barely even a mention on RBMA’s own website, it slipped under the radar for all but the most avid musos. But then let’s face it, 2ManyDJ’s don’t really need any advertising to generate buzz. And they certainly proved why last Friday. After a melodic show from the XX, the Belgian Duo took to the decks for a 2-hour midnight set that redefined the limits of epic. Unlike their 2009 AV festival sets, there were no cheesy mash-ups but just pure, filthy electro-rave pumped out of a sound system that left you with semi-permanent tinnitus. This was a mix-perfect gig, not for the faint-hearted.
