Just a quick update on various Slutty Fringe related gigs that are going on over the next few weeks, if you’re in the area come along and say hello.
Friday 3rd April – 9pm till 4am – The Last Days of Disco @ Bardens
Party number 7 for Last Days, and it’s looking like another classic. Joining David H and us on the decks you’ve got new DFA signing Capracara, History Clock’s Nathan Gregory Wilkins, and Citinite’s Complexxion, a strong look for sure.
Mail us here for guestlist (free before 10.30 / £3 after).
Sunday 12th April – 6pm till 3am – Milky Disco @ Cargo
I’ll be flying solo on this one but the absence of Mr Poland should be just about made up for by the rest of the lineup which also features (deep breath)… Black Devil Disco Club (live), Soft Rocks, Richard Sen, Black Mustang and Gatto Fritto.
Milky Disco 2 is out in a few weeks and mark my words it is this year’s definitive cosmic/balearic disco compilation, check out 20JFG for some sneak peeks. More details here.
Thursday 16th April – Land of Kings @ Various, Dalston, Kingsland
A brand new urban festival set in Dalston, 2 days of fun across several venues and an eye wateringly good lineup. The soundtrack? Dubstep to disco, gypsy punk to electro, jazz to techno. All-you-can-eat for your ears and feet..
Speaking of eating, no Dalston jaunt would be complete without taking in the area’s ocakbasi and mangals, some of which’ll be offering festival specials to those with wristbands; food fit for a King.
We’ll be proping up the bar/decks in Bardens on the Thursday. More details here.

Friday 17th April – London Sunshine – Bunker Club, Deptford
Just confirmed so bit light on details but we shall be playing at this fine little sweatbox for the very nice London Sunshine people.
Probably the most local gig either of us have done in ages, so with no driving, cab fares or night busses to worry about expect to see us carried home at the end of the night. More details here.
Friday 24th April – Slutty Fringe – 7pm till 3am – Cargo
After the absolute roadblock that was our Jan 2nd party we wanted to bide our time and get the next Slutty Fringe night at Cargo right and well I think we have.
We have live sets from My Tiger My Timing, Portasound and Hot Pockets superstar Line, whilst joining us on the decks will be the brilliant Heartbreak and Resident Advisor’s current Label Of The Month boss Andy Blake. As ever with these things it is of course free to get in. More details here.
After all that it’s probably only fair I should give the evergreen Be @ Proud a plug too as I can normally be found skulking behind the decks there most Saturdays and there’s some damn fine lineups coming up.
Right, as you were…
