Probably the best mix I’ve heard all year comes courtesy of my friend Andy Blake (Dissident) to promote his night World Unknown in Brixton.
Here’s the PR…
Hot on the heels of Brixton’s debut World Unknown party - ram packed and rocking ‘til the close with no publicity whatsoever, November 6th 2009 promises to propel London’s worst kept secret into a cool, surreal scene unparalleled since John Cooper Clarke and Nico lived together round the corner in the 80s.
World Unknown is a monthly session bringing back a tougher, more physical, emotional and cerebral synth-based take on dance music to London’s musical landscape.
The soundtrack takes in elements of Belgian new beat, jacking acid house, cold wave, synth-pop, techno and italo, and hangs out somewhere in the territory inhabited by Ron Hardy’s wild, kinetic take on house in its prototype form at Chicago’s legendary Muzic Box circa ‘83-‘86 and the sound of Belgian clubs Boccaccio, Carrere and Ancienne Belgique in the mid to late 80s. Naturally Andy and Joe bring things bang up to date with their own unique take on things, digging deep into their expansive, labour-of-love record collections for those gems that nobody else is playing…yet.
November 6th 11pm - 5am Secret location, Brixton, London £5 before 12 and £7 after.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for address and £5.00 guest list all night
The intimate, unique and somewhat strange secret venue in Brixton is perfect for this dance experiment. Away from the trend-hungry hipster hordes of Dalston and Shoreditch, World Unknown is indeed just that.
No Tracklisting on this one. To be expected really.
