Yeah, I’m gonna have to find cover for the Friday for that one. Same with the Stingray night.
Alright folks, sorry-not-sorry for promoting in this thread. Think most of the regular posters here are London types, but… 6 top DiSers from the Disintegration State label will be performing at The Peer Hat in Manchester on Feb 16th. Evening will start more on the ambient end and get dancier later on. Tickets are £6 and there should be a number of other DiSers in attendance. This is our first label night, so if you have pals up north you can spread the word to, that would be hugely appreciated.
This sounds great, been impressed with the label so far - just a shame this isn’t possible to get to! Any plans for a label night in London this year perhaps?
For sure! Need to sort a venue and date but it’s certainly on the cards.

American police, fucking hell
Er, is that it?
jfc those line-ups are so average, worst birthday party ever.
Appreciate that this is only phase one of the announcements and Fabric is, at heart, a big room tech house establishment but Christ that’s an uninspiring set of parties. The Martinez Brothers are the dullest DJs I’ve ever seen.
Hoping for a Hessle Audio night or all-nighters from less established DJs and crews in the next wave.
Jesus. Thank fuck they didn’t shoot him
Fucking hell this is dreadful.
Nice thumping mix here from Giant Swan:
Yeah, a Hessle night would be good but it would be great to see them give a smaller label a takeover. The Timedance parties are always raucous fun to see one of those taken to that environment would be great. Or go like fully off the beaten track and have the Wah Wah Wino crew put on a night.
The best that labels like that can hope for is room 2 or 3 at Fabric. It’s a big club, and you don’t pull in the punters on a regular basis by putting on niche acts as headliners. E.g. you’ve got Livity Sound coming up there, but you’ve also got Villalobos in the main room to keep the casuals happy.
That said, there are all kinds of big name DJs/labels out there with more appeal than those birthday parties as they stand.
Has anyone been to Junction 2 before?
A few friends have been every year and they love it, seem to really rate the festival site, long set times, quality of sound at each stage etc. This year the line-up looks decent so it’s tempting to join them (Field Day same weekend though).
Dekmantel have been releasing the line-up today on their Instagram. Looking incredibly good so far, a tonne of new names I’ve not heard of to get investigating too.
Yeah I quite fancy the Friday - will see if I can get people on board.
Mmm. Normally there’s not enough variety on their line ups for me, but this one is scratching the itch
