Chew The Fat! and voodoo hook up, and tear The End apart.
That's right, us humble little Voodoo folks are gaining larger aspirations, starting off by collaborating with Chew The Fat! for their final ever night at The End before moving on to bigger things and the line up is a bit a banger. Chew The Fat! have gone all out and have not only brought out one of the most inventive and recognisable French producers since Daft Punk and Mr. Oizo, SebastiAn, as well as jacking house stormers Hijack, but have even pulled out the man behind it all, Paul "Trouble" Arnold for a massive, roof-raising set. And don't forget Kid Blue, CTF!'s legendary resident will, without fail, play a set that will take elements from the night, and do something completely different with the, keeping kids dancing whether it's the start, end or middle of the night.
Across the hall way, in the lounge, we like to think we've cooked up quite a treat too, with Southern Fried's rising star o the house scene, Mowgli headlining and liable to destroy the place with some ridiculous house bangers. In the spirit of the night, we also roped in Merka AND Gella, Fat! records own superstars in the making and both with albums out in the next month or so, soooo, yes, that means we're hosting Mowgli and TWO album launches, and for the icing on the cake we've roped in South London's Kanji Kinetic who's records are becoming staple plays on Mary Anne Hobbs' groundbreaking Radio 1 show alongside having tunes put out by Drop The Lime's NYC imprint, Trouble & Bass. I predict his low end bass wobbles to pull walls down before the night is out. Oh, and Voodoo hosts and residents Thick As Thieves will be opening up proceedings from 22:00 - 00:00 as well. Not bad.
Isn't that exciting. Yes yes.
Um, so in the spirit of things, here's Thick As Thieves new mix for November. I like it, a lot. ranging from jacking electro through to some darker house with strong ech influnces via, you guessed it, disco, the track listing looks as follows:
