Is back with it's first installment since host venure The Last Days Of Decadence opened it's doors in an official capacity. So, i celebration of this occasion we thought we'd pull together a spectacular line up, the likes of which the venue has never dreamed.
First up, the headliner. Duke Dumont. 'Nuff said, right? Well, i might as well remind you that he won the Diesel U-Music awards electronic category in 2006, pipping David E. Sugar to the post, kick starting his career. He has since gone on to become one of the most respected producers in the UK house scene having material put out by the likes of seminal lables such as Dubsided (Dave 'Switch" Taylor's label) and Turbo (Tiga's). Really, 'Nuff said.
Playing alongside this young gentlemen will be Portugal's Photonz. These guys are picking up support from the likes of Erol Alkan and Riton and are about to unleash a frenzied tour on an unsuspecting UK public who are going to, quite simply,lap up every messy second of their tech-infused assault. Bang.
You can look forward to seeing Bendict of Skull Juice fame. If you don;t know these two by now you must have been living in some kind of box in a stupid place as these are one of the biggest duos on the London scene right now and have been for over a year now. Get involved.
We also have upcoming producer Louis La Roche, perhaps currently best known for being mistaken for Thomas Bangalter with his debut internet track but has since proved his worth in his own right with more recent productions and his Night Facilities work as well. Expect big things.
Also spinning for your listening and dancing pleasure are Steve V Something who runs Bournemouth's rather fantastic "We Are Your Friends" night (check out their up coming Block party line up. It is BIG), residents and legends Thick As Thieves, the lovely Lost In Paris ladies.
Interested? You fucking should be! Haha, but seriously, it promises to be our best party yet, and when you consider our parties have consisted of Justice popping in to hang out, Erol Alkan dropping by and spinning a tune or too for no good reason other than he's a true legend and Late of the Pier drinking along side (not to mention Jack Beats hammering the place to a pulp with pulsating bass and Andy George and Foamo playing early London shows for us), i think this speaks volumes.
Hope to see you there, and contact me if you want to com and would like some guestlist action or want any more info.
Oh, and have some 'Roche while you're at it.

... Mystery Jets as they seem to be one of those bands that are prime for remixing. My main reason for this viewpoint is that there are so many great remixes of their material, from the old (Justice doing their thing) to the recent (The shoes tinkering with Young Love and Switch demolishing Hideaway).
And then there is the new. Half In Love with Elizabeth has had some interesting remixes from the likes of Delorean, but it's Foamo's version that will go down as the best. I can't rate this man's production highly enough. While i suppose it's easiest to just lump him in with the new wave of fidget producers I, personally, think he's bringing much more to the table. This being a prime example. It seems as though, at 21, Foamo is here to stay.

It's been a long weekend and i don't have the energy to write much, suffice to say Chew The Fat's 11th birthday went off with a bang, and Duke Dumont, Kid Blue and rogue Element all smashed it. As did Stopmakingme and Riton at 333, for Last One In's a Rotten Egg last night (seriously, you want to be checking this night, hosted by Jac the Disco, out huge line ups every month and consistently packing out the place (previous guests include Brodinski, Yuksek, Jean Nipon, Andy George, Skull Juice, Midfield General and more of that caliber)). Very, very cool.
This has, of course, resulted in minimal amounts of sleep since Thursday and my brain feels very wonky indeed, but here's a couple of fun Sunday evening tunes anyhow.
The Streets - Let's Push Things Forward (Hostage Remix)
Will Smith - Miami (Laidback Luke Remix)
And don;t forget to check out the next Voodoo in two weeks time on October 24th. We have Duke Dumont, Photonz (first ever UK gig, having garnered support from Bloggers Delight and Erol Alkan, Louis La Roche and Ben from Skull Juice plus more! Noice.
p.s. this is ammusing, i think:
