With the amazing Actress (Werk/Honest Jons), Paul Purgas (emptyset/Bodyhammer), Chairman Kato (Pictures Music) LIVE! and Benedict Bull (Skull Juice/BleeD/Phonica).
Cheap drinks, staunch sounds.
More about that banging line-up:
Actress’s second album Splazsh melds heavily compressed house with half-remembered snippets of video games, UK garage and R&B, all soaked in off-kilter techno. Anyone who’s seen him play live will tell you – his beats are tight and his moves are fierce.
Chairman Kato recently released his Wildfire EP on Pictures Music. He’ll be packing a lot of chubstep beats into a short but intense improvised set. His first live set ever, we’ve seen a sneak preview, and this will be insanely good.
Paul Purgas, of experimental techno outfit Emptyset and the underground jackfest that is Bodyhammer, is playing the final set. We’re not sure what – possibly some rabid breed of chicago acid, detroit techno, electronica and house.
Benedict Bull of Skull Juice, one of our absolute favourite DJs, is possibly integrating his walkman into the mix … technological tomfoolery or no his records are ridiculously good and we’re dead chuffed he’ll be playing for two hours.
Release/The Fez is at 23 Lewisham Way, a short walk from New Cross, New Cross Gate, and a ton of bus stops. N21 for London Bridge, 453/ N130/ N89 /N171 West End, 36 West London.
To mark the launch of the label and CD STRUC01CD STRUCTURE hosts a night of BASS ELECTRONICS & NOISE at the basement space, The Drop.
8pm – Late (£5 entry)

Vikings @ The Shacklewell Arms, Dalston
10.30 – 5am
Joe And Will Ask
With special guest – Kiwi
Joe and Will Ask’s much lauded Vikings night is moving to The Shacklewell Arms, Dalston – a joint venture between members of Field Day, Pub on the Park and Eat Your Own Ears. And after another amazing Vikings (many have been saying the best yet), Joe And Will Ask are very excited to announce that their next guest will be Kiwi.
“Alex (Kiwi) has been a good friend of ours for a while, and he completely blew us away with his last couple of DJ sets. We decided to go to the studio with no plan and just to have some fun, and for some reason this Moloko track came up. We absolutely love it, and had wanted to do a version of the track that we could play out for ages but never found the right way to do it, but after a couple of hours with Alex, we had pretty much nailed it! We wanted to keep as much of the original as possible while giving it the open-air summer roof party sort of feel with the bassline.
“Vikings” is fast becoming a techno institution, packed to the rafters with bright young things. Brought to you by dance music pioneers Joe and Will Ask and taking place on the final Thursday of each month, the duo will be bringing the best of the quirky, melodic dance music that they have become so well known for.
With Vikings you can guarantee a few things; the line up will be major, the atmosphere electric and the night itself will be memorable. Having brought the likes of Boy 8 Bit, Matt Wlash, Bowski, Eskimo Twins & Coin Operated Boy to the intimate surroundings of The Russian Bar, Vikings always provides some riotous tomfoolery.
