Late March sees the 2nd Birthday of Electro superstar Mylo’s Italo-Disco London outings Ecstasy, Passion & Pain. To celebrate in style the man has brought together a crazy good line-up to party at XOYO in the 22nd.
There’s another hot night fast approaching for Londoners in March as Vitalic headlines a special Easter show at Koko in Camden.
We we’re a bit disappointed by Vitalic’s last album, but he does put on a hell of a live show and the supporting talent is pretty insane. Yuksek, who’s set to be the highlight of the evening, with Etienne De Crécy, Kap Bambino, Goose, Dragonette and Blende. that’s some top electronic talent to be gracing one stage, in one night. And that’s before you factor in Punx Soundcheck hosting a second room. Phew!
Yuksek, Dragonette and Blende are worth the admission price alone.
With SynthWave master Kavinsky’s album just around the corner, due for a February release, the man himself is set to visit London for what promises to be a full-on night of blistering Electro in celebration of the record’s release.
The Dead Cruiser descends on a secret London warehouse location 2nd March for one of the hot tickets of the year so far.
Don’t forget, this Saturday is the launch party for awesome new SynthWave/Nu-Disco compilation We Are The Future’. Hosted by Lemonade at The Nest in Dalston, London it’s going to be an awesome night. Come and party ‘til the early hours with The C90s, Edwin Van Cleef, Fear Of Tigers (live), Futurecop! (live) and little old me spinning some glorious synth music (and maybe dropping in some previews of forthcoming electronic rumors releases!
As well as rocking Bestival this year electronic rumors will also be in attendance at The Magic Loungeabout, a festival with a difference.
