Venetian Snares + Boxcutter + Chevron + The doubtful guest at The Laundry 15 – 11 – 2014

The Laundry, London

+ buy tickets

In collaboration with Planet mu, Soundcrash presents one of the nastiest nights of the year at the Laundry 15th of November 2014…

If you made it to the last sold out show at Scala this year, you’ll know with Venetian Snares , to expect the unexpected. Since the beginning of his career he has been pushing the boundaries of electronic music, pioneering a particularly complex, manic and surreal style of breakcore that has placed him at the fore front of underground electronica. He’s distinguished himself, both by his meticulous approach to composition and by the abundance of his releases. More than 20 albums since his 1999 debut, along with a slew of seven-inches, remixes, and compilation appearances. It’s very rare these days that music producers are able to leap from genre to genre while still keeping the overall vision of the source material intact. Aaron Funk has managed to do exactly that in a way that is darker and nastier than ever imagined.

‘Brutally dissonant, mind-blowingly complex and very, very nasty.’ – BBC

Boxcutter is a guitarist and electronic music producer from Northern Ireland. He has been releasing music since 2005 on labels such as Hotflush and Planet Mu. He is mainly known for his dubstep-related work under the alias Boxcutter, back in the formative days of the genre, but has also released music under his own name and more recently as The Host, an internet-themed fusion of footwork-inspired beats and cosmic instrumental sounds.

The Doubtful Guest is the Queen of UK’s breakcore. During her set she will move (and you will dance) through a selection of styles fusing dub, drum’n’bass and pure party music. Finalising the Planet Mu lineup is Chevron the alter ego of electronic musician Jonathan Valentine. Since releasing his debut LP on Planet Mu ‘Everything’s exactly the same’, he has gone on to play countless raves across the U.K and Europe.

Come join us for one hell of a party featuring the finest artists from the long running british Record Label, Planet Mu…

Mister Sunday: Eamon Harkin & Justin Carter

Oval Space 29-32 The Oval; Bethnal Green; London E2 9DT

+ buy tickets

After a long, hot summer of outdoor parties in Brooklyn, Misters Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter return to London for the second edition of Mister Sunday at Oval Space.

The boys were in top form at the first edition, dropping everything from A Tribe Called Quest to A Guy Called Gerald, and from Blawan to Little Willie John. They always bring their A-games to London.

Beyond the music, there’s ping pong to be played and food from local purveyors to be eaten. We’ll be blowing up balloons and opening the curtains to let the sun in, and there’ll be a merch stand with tee shirts and records, just like they do back home.

The party starts at 4pm, and we’ll wrap things up around midnight.

Make a day of it!

It gives US great pleasure to announce that this autumn on the 8th November, we at Trouble Vision will be hosting the second label showcase for John Talabot’s critically acclaimed Hivern Discs imprint at London’s Oval Space.

Having hosted the Spanish label’s debut London outing last year at Corsica Studios as part of our 5th Birthday series, we couldn’t have been more eager to do it all over again. This time at a bigger venue and with a whole host of new artists from the label.

Of course John Talabot will headline the show with Axel Boman under their ‘Talaboman,’ alias. This will be the first time they have performed as Talaboman in London and in honour they will be playing for 3 hours to close the party.

In support label contributors, acclaimed crate diggers and general party starters Bicep will be on hand to do what they do best. Plus a live show from Young Turks affiliate Pional, and to round things off, new comers C.P.I (Marc Piñol & Hugo Capablanca,) whose blinding EP ‘El Tunel / Proceso’ on Hivern Discs from earlier this year really turned some heads.

Advanced tickets have sold out but there will be 100 on the door from 10pm.

Mister Saturday Night (Justin Carter & Eamon Harkin) + Support at Wire Club

Wire, Leeds

+ buy tickets

It gives us the greatest of pleasure to introduce you to one of the most forward thinking labels and most definitely two of the greatest entrepreneurs in the party starting game, Mister Saturday Night.

Straight from the mean streets of Brooklyn, Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin have been purveying all sorts of weird and wonderful sounds to the NYC underground that it has now become somewhat of an institution since it’s inception 5 years ago. These guys are ridiculously open-minded when it comes to their music policy, albeit it does have a tendency to lean toward the tougher edges of house, techno and disco. Gaining mass respect from their peers the world over for their like-minded ethos on well-earned craftsmanship without taking life too seriously. It is both of these attributes that has seen them go from strength to strength in recent years both with their label, Mister Saturday Night Records, and their undeniably chic Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday soirees in the heart of the Brooklyn streets.

Providing the platform for such young guns like Anthony Naples, Archie Pelago, General Ludd, Hank Jackson and Lumigraph to name but a few with many more promising acts in the bag already, the duos stature has begun to swell at a steady rate throughout the globe with them taking their name to a plethora of shindigs across the planet. It will be an honour and absolute joy to hear their weird and wonderful sounds in the confinements of Wire. Bring your best dancing kicks as this one is going to get sweaty!

Plex are back bringing the heat to Room 1 for their 8th birthday, with an unbelievable lineup of forward-thinking Techno headed up by the inimitable Ancient Methods who are one of the most distinctive and powerful voices in modern music. Joining them will be former UK Garage dons ( heheh ) Blacknecks, playing their first live London show exclusively for us. Expect heavy Techno strength with more than a little attitude! The always amazing Inigo Kennedy will be showing his indubitable wealth of skill on the decks and Power Vacuum head honcho Bintus makes his Plex debut spinning Techno, Acid, and whatever amazing new stuff he’s got cooking. Opening proceedings one of our long-time heroes Donor flies in from The States; he’ll be playing back-to-back with a yet-to-be-announced secret guest. A bastion of Bristol’s Techno community, Black Amiga will be playing his crushing new live set exclusively for us. Pulling all this mayhem together are your ever-reliable residents Luke Handsfree, James Tec and Skunkrock, playing individual sets throughout the night before a b2b2b2b2b sesssion as the PBT All Stars taking you all the way to 10am!

BleeD take on Room 2 this time, and the lineup is as ridiculously immense as you’ve come to expect from them over the last four years. They’re flying in the legendary Hieroglyphic Being from Chicago to play an extended set. A man with a singular and distinctive sound and DJ skill to match, we’re looking forward to hearing him flex Corsica’s second room for 3 hours. Charles Manier’s last LP was one of the best and most keenly-awaited Techno records of recent times, he will be flying over from Michigan to play a debut set under the Manier name here at Corsica. The man like Ekoplekz will be playing a live set, filled with the auteur-curated sounds that have brought him so much regard. Long time ally and good friend of Plex and BleeD, Tengui will be giving us all an exclusive first outing of his live set; with an LP about to drop on Broken20 and remixes in the pipeline, you’ll definitely want to hear this! BleeD big man Volte-Face will be joining the dots before heading across to the PBT All Stars mayhem approaching 10am…

We’re very excited about our first collaborative party with London Bass-come-Techno monsters Them. These guys have been hosting some of the most powerful and prescient parties in the UK over the past few years, welcoming such illustrious guests as Perc, Shackleton and Clouds down to make the noise. They’ve pulled yet another special lineup together for this Plex / BleeD / Them mega-rave. Heading up the bill in Room 3 will be the much lauded and admired Randomer who’s most recent records on L.I.E.S. and Russian Torrent have brought further praise for the Londoner. Joining him will be J. Tijn and joeFarr, two of the country’s most upfront and rave-ready producers and DJs. Having heard J. Tijn make Fabric’s Room 3 shudder the other week and heard joeFarr smash out a hell of a set at Bristol’s Room237, we know you lot will be in for a treat. Rising star Ansome has been turning quite a few heads and pricking up ears with his startling new Techno flex, having been picked up by artists such as Rebekah and Paul Birken. Don’t miss his peak time spot! In support will be Them favourites Waterworks and Altar, flexing the Room 3 Function One rig good and proper.

Tickets have been flying out and we expect this to be another roadblock three-room smash up. We’ll be running all the way to 10am in Room 1 so get yourselves ready for a big one! See you at the front left speaker :)

Secretsundaze Halloween Party with Rolando, Funkineven, Romare

Original East London party collective secretsundaze are proud to reveal details of their 2014 Halloween Party. After a good run, the Asylum theme of previous years is making way for an exciting new theme: Dead Famous. Think deceased artisocrats, artists, politicians and notorious movie stars from bygone eras.

As with last year the party will take place at the fantastic Oval Space, a venue that the secretsundaze crew have grown close to over the last 2 years having teamed up for an ongoing collaboration with Oval Space Music, and one whose blank canvas provides the perfect backdrop for the Dead Famous production.

Headlining the party is the mighty Rolando. This will be his third appearance at secretsundaze and anyone that saw him play at the opening party on the terrace at Studio 338 in May will know why they’ve booked him again. Originating from Detroit, Rolando was originally linked to the hallowed UR camp through his huge hit ‘Knights of The Jaguar’ and also his amazing output as one half of Los Hermanos. Rolando has continued to find new fans through his work with both Berghain as a regular guest and releasing on their label Ostgut Ton. This year he launched his new label simply entitled Roland Rocha Recordings or R3. His DJing is quite exceptional, high energy but always with plenty of funk and impeccable mixing skills.

Joining him is none other than London based force of nature Funkineven. Funkineven has taken the world by storm with his raw, groovin and playful tracks. He of course collaborates with the equally talented Kyle Hall to form duo Funkinevil who both play and produce together. His new label Apron has turned heads releasing some dope ass shit from the likes of Seven Davis JR, Greg Beato and of Funkineven himself.

The third and final guest for this occasion is Romare – Live. Off the back of a couple of very well received EPs, the young Romare has already earned himself a loyal following, regularly DJing with some of the leading left-of-centre artists both here and abroad. Inspired by the American collage artist Romare Bearden, his music draws influence from the traditional rhythms of Africa with the contemporary tempos of footwork and house. With his debut LP due to drop around the time of the party on Ninja Tune, this will be the London debut of his all new live show.
