A Positive Education

March 26, 2009


There are few things more likely to have me blindly reaching for my debit card than the words ‘Prince Language Remix‘ and over the past couple of years the New Yorker’s sublime reworks of tracks by everyone from your everyday DFA types to Ahmed Fakroun have been an ever present fixture in my record bag.

Probably bored of me messaging him on MySpace every other month asking when he’s going to come to London, he finally makes an appearance this Saturday at Nadia Ksaiba‘s really rather good SAY YES night at The Star of Bethnal Green.

The hype doesn’t end there as he will be spinning records alongside another fringe favourite Cliché boss Cosmo Vitelli. Seriously London, you’ve never had it so good, if you get there early enough you don’t even have to pay.

Cosmo and Say Yes resident Thomas Whitehead have even strung together a couple of mixes to get you in the mood.
