Find Me In The Dark celebrate their 1st Birthday with a world exclusive acid live set from the revered house duo, Genius of Time. Known for their raw, hardware-analogue live sets, this time they’re heading in to the studio to work up a ton of 303-loaded tracks and reworks. 1 hour of never before heard acid action… This will be fully unmissable!

Joining them will be the excellent Christopher Rau, whose recent output on Smallville, Office and Thema have seen him produce some of his finest work to date.

Kristina Records boss Jason Spinks will be joining us for an extended set of house and techno rarities and new cuts, the best of the best from the North East of the capital and one of the most underrated DJs in London.

Rounding out the lineup is FMITD and Lobster theremin head Asquith. With both night and label are having breakout years and he’ll be closing out the main room with some heavily fired-up jams. Expect serious late-night techno to roll us on into the afterparty!

As 2014 nears its end, Oval Space Music is gearing up to throw its penultimate show of the year with Kassem Mosse, Roman Flügel, Gerd Janson and Fritz Zander

Known for switching up his sound and aliases with stealthy regularity, Gunnar Wendel aka Kassem Mosse unleashed Workshop 19, his debut solo LP, earlier this year to an unsuspecting audience and rapturous acclaim (RA awarded it an impressive 4.5 out of 5). Expect leftfield, dark and contemplative sounds from this critically acclaimed producer.

A fellow musical chameleon who goes by many names, Roman Flügel is another artist who has explored many styles from ambient to techno via electro, house and more. He joins Mosse alongside the unstoppable Gerd Janson, the man behind Running Back whose love of deep disco and up-beat house grooves combined with his encyclopaedic knowledge have earned him a reputation for delivering seriously uplifting sets.

Kiasmos – Album Release Show (LIVE WITH VISUALS)

Rival Consoles – (LIVE WITH VISUALS)

Dauwd – (dj set)

Luka (live)

‘Ólafur and Janus will celebrate their debut album with a special release show including live visuals in London.’

Kiasmos is made up of Icelandic BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds, known for his unique blend of minimal piano and string compositions with electronic sounds, and Janus Rasmussen from the Faroe Islands, known as the mastermind of the electro-pop outfit Bloodgroup.

By focusing solely on their self-titled debut album, Ólafur and Janus have been able to combine and further develop their unique sound aesthetics to complete an album driven by their mutual love for electronic music. Ólafur and Janus will celebrate their new debut album with a special release party with visuals in London.

‘Full of melancholy-frosted electronics and emotive swells of classical piano, the new single from Nordic duo Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen is a delicate, icy slowburn – much like the project itself.’ – NME

‘Atmospheric synths swell victoriously’ – XLR8R

RIVAL CONSOLES-

London-based electronic producer Rival Consoles often composes early ideas on piano, violin and guitar, although the end result is much more electronic-laden. Loosely based around his new EP releases “Sonne” and “Odyssey”, he live will explore atmosphere, space and the power of colour with his analogue setup of the Moog, Prophet, tape delay and visuals.

DAUWD-

Early releases gained support from some of music’s most important names. Benji B, Gilles Peterson, and Jamie XX were early champions, Ikopol was released as part of Adult Swim’s {UNCLASSIFIED} compilation alongside tracks from Burial, Kode9 and Untold.

Having toured extensively as a DJ, headlining club shows all around the UK and Europe, Dauwd has also won over the likes of Nick Höppner (OstGut Ton) and Kompakt label boss Michael Mayer who included Ikopol on his mix for Faze Magazine.

New productions move away from the UK sound, drawing on house and techno and expressing a long-standing love of these genres. Clearly the dance floor has permeated into the studio.

Dauwd creates music with complexity most contemporary producers shy away from. Found sounds are thickly laden over multi-timbred synths. Vocal and instrumental stabs punctuate organic and evolving passages guided always by driving percussion and immaculate low-end production. His productions are full and intricate with a wealth of sounds building warm atmospheres that are unusual within dance music. Having worked with Ableton, Dauwd has developed a unique live show working with their new Push controller and live instrumentation.6 year old Dauwd was raised in Wales playing piano, guitar and drums whilst experimenting with

5 years back Half Baked started as a party on a sunny Sunday afternoon in an arched car park in East London. From the very beginning it became something that became very special to everyone, known for a crowd of friendly faces with big smiles, the illuminated bicycle hanging from the ceiling, the Half Baked sign decorated with flowers and of course great music. Despite now being five years older, that magic from those very first parties still exists today as we’re sure many of you will agree

Now let’s focus more on the party itself! The lineup speaks for itself and all of the artists need no introduction, there is however a few extra bits of information to make yourselves aware of that will make the birthday party just that extra bit exciting! If you’ve been to one of Half Baked’s birthday parties before you’ll know that every year we have given a gift out to those coming to the party, from our own Half Baked USB sticks, to Half Baked oyster card wallets, fans, T-shirts and bags – we know that some of you still use the previous gifts to this day! For this year we have a couple of surprises in terms of gifts for you all, but to find out what they are you better make sure you’re there on the day to receive one (make sure that you arrive early for this – we have plenty of gifts but our supply isn’t unlimited, once they’re all gone, they’re gone)!

Superstition present Trouw Takeover at Village Underground

Village Underground 54 Holywell Lane; Shoreditch; London EC2A 3PQ

Makam, Sandrien, Patrice Baumel, Job Jobse,

Following last year’s towering takeover, Trouw are back at Village Underground for its new in-house night, Superstition.

The legendary Trouw Amsterdam will be sadly closing its doors on the 3rd January, after an incredibly successful five years. We thought it would be best to give London another taste of Holland’s most respected and renowned club before it shuts for good.

This time, Trouw residents Makam, Patrice Baumel, Sandrien and Job Jobse will be displaying their dexterity on the decks.

Makam has electronic music coded into his DNA. Following support from his family and friends, he took musical matters into his own hands eventually taking up DJ residencies at Trouw and Dekmental. After mastering the art of production he finally released a string of tracks on his new label Amulett.

Patrice Bäumel is an internationally renowned DJ and producer currently living in Amsterdam. He is a long-time resident at Trouw Amsterdam and runs his Black Magic and HiFi nights at the club. Patrice fills his productions and DJ sets with inspirational energy, creating a sound that is satisfies the mind as well as the body, he calls this smart approach “techno music for grown-ups”. Trademark productions like Roar, Mike Tyson or more recently, The Woods are perfect examples of his clever attitude.

Sandrien’s prolonged residency at Trouw is an undeniable affirmation of her talent and versatility. She is able to almost instantly get a cold crowd in the right mood and has proven on numerous occasions that she excels at both short, intense sets and long, building ones. In other words, few that have seen Sandrien play will doubt her strength at turning any night into a special one. Her extensive list of past gigs is a testament to that fact: including numerous gigs at both Trouw and Berghain and performances at Berns Stockholm, Concrete in Paris, the Bravo Stage at Lowlands Festival, 5 Days Off and many more.

Job Jobse previously worked for Berlin based label Innervisions before he became the booker and resident of Trouw where he also set up the Life and Death record label. Now currently working with Barnt on music, this young hot shot has a lot in store to offer.

We also welcome Meeus Van Dis, who creates Trouw’s incredible lighting installations who will be taking control of the lighting and give it that Trouw feel and vibe.

Rebeljam After Party at House of Vans – FREE ENTRY

House of Vans, London

Closing off one of the BMX world’s most hotly anticipated events, Red Bull bring a heavy night of Grime and Garage music to the House of Vans.

Steve Bishop, known professionally as Oneman, is a DJ and producer from Streatham, London. His background is in pirate radio and he is now a regular DJ on Rinse FM.

Oneman’s DJ sets typically blend dubstep, hip-hop, grime, UK funky and UK garage, and he has released two mix albums with Fabriclive and Rinse FM.

Crack magazine discusses Oneman’s early career and background, describing him as a “A figure synonymous with the Rinse FM station and the brand and subculture surrounding it, the origins of illegal broadcasts and guerrilla tactics made for an aggressive movement and an unmistakable sound. Having grown up in Streatham during the original impact of UK garage, the part Oneman plays in the landscape now is twofold. It’s not as if he’s attempting to initiate a full-on renaissance of the UK garage scene, but it’s DJs like Oneman who help embed these sounds into the consciousness of a clubbing generation who narrowly missed it.

Nathan Gerald, better known as Preditah is a Garage/Grime music composer, DJ & Bassist from Birmingham, England. Thanks to His orchestral, melodic head-banging music, He is now one of the most recognisable names and faces in Grime – a poster boy, even.

Murlo specialises in a wonderfully colourful kind of bass-heavy dance music and he’s getting the recognition he deserves.

This year he’s put out one of the best grime tunes of 2014, landed a mini-residency on BBC 1Xtra and become a strong affiliate of the Boxed and Butterz camps.

A few years back he moved to London from Brighton in order to concentrate on music and the step into the capital is now paying off. He taps into the whomp ‘n’ grind of grime, garage and bassline as well as the hot thrust of dancehall and afrobeats to create riddims that shimmy and shake with carnival energy and low-end heat. Put simply, you’ll know a Murlo tune when you hear it and he’s forging ahead with his own insatiable style.

The event will be streamed live on redbull.com/bike
