To try and help you all forget about the cold British weather, here are the 5 best upcoming events this weekend.
1. Space Ibiza: Winter Wonderland
Venue: Studio 338
After another incredible, sold out year in the UK capital for the Ibizan legends, the time has come to bring you the grand finale!
Both Space and 338 know how to throw a party and we are determined to raise the bar even further for the first ever ‘Winter Wonderland’ edition.
A full production set will see our Space familia enter an icy world of arctic animals, igloos and snow covered forests for the perfect way to end the year.
As per usual the line up is a top draw array of legends and fresh faces. This time headlined by Deepdish hero Sharam and the incredible Todd Terry alongside Shadow Child, and Huxley and more.
2. Andrew Weatherall & Sean Johnston (A Love From Outer Space)
Phonox’s most regular and beloved fixture returns.
Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston bring their adored ‘A Love From Outer Space’ outfit to the Phonox booth. The manifesto for the night is simple. The tempo of the tracks played never exceeds 122bpm, to create “An oasis of slowness in a world of increasing velocity”.
3. Make Me with Donato Dozzy b2b Dasha Rush
Venue: Village Underground, EC2A 3PQ
We are truly honoured to be hosting two of the most unique artists working in techno today for an extended back-to-back session.
Donato Dozzy needs little introduction for our crowd. After a summer of headline performances at top festivals and two killer releases on his Spazio Disponibile imprint in 2019 alone, the professor is going from strength to strength.
Donato consistently pulls out top drawer sets at our parties and we expect this time to be no different. Not least because he is sharing deck duties for 5 hours with the inimitable Dasha Rush.
Dasha is a Live performer, electronic music composer, sound artist and DJ, but her work is equally focused away from the dance floor, and sometimes away from the music itself. A true artist across multiple disciplines, Dasha sees techno as her starting point, not a destination. Making her DJ sets a truly unique musical experience.
4. 17.11 fabric XX: Maceo Plex (6 Hour Set)
Venue: Fabric London
We welcome Maceo Plex to our XX series. The US producer has long been part of our story, with a string of regular appearances dating back to 2011. Back then he was playing as part of our Rebel Rave nights, but these days, he’s used to leading the party under his own banner. As well as presenting his Ellum Audio label in our space, he’s taken to our Room One booth for a number of marathon length sets, and he also helped wrap up the tail end of our label series with his stellar fabric 98 compilation. The mix showed his love of polished deep house tunes underpinned by catchy bass lines, and his performances with us have always crossed the same territory. He’s also known for dipping into tougher techno and electro funk, something he mastered under the alias Maetrik, and has more recently shown via his excellent Lone Romantic imprint. Over the length of his career he’s become one of electronic music’s top hitters, and when he joins our 20th anniversary celebrations, he’ll be showcasing his craft on our Room One system for an extended 6-hour set.
5. Hot Wuk – Bashment Party
Venue: Village Undergound
Hot Wuk have been throwing the wickedest bashment raves in the UK for the last 10 years. We build a safe space for people from all walks of life where everyone can come and share their love of dancehall music.
London soundsystem The Heatwave play all night long: the UK’s leading dancehall crew with over 15 years’ experience shelling down raves and festivals all round the world.
