Scandinavia has turned itself into the disco hotbed of the world, thanks to the like of Prins Thomas and Todd Terje emerging from their shores. It’s also bred underrated stars Lindstrom and Mr Tophat and Art Alfie, whose ear for a hook keeps any given dancefloor on its toes whilst keeping clubbers grinning all the way home. With all of them together with fellow disco supremos Tiger & Woods under one roof, this one should have no trouble wheeling you all the way up to hedonistic heaven.

Martyn’s career up until now has been notable for numerous reasons. Starting off in the realms of drum and bass, he then developed a more dubstep-influenced sound which arguably led to one of the era’s most important albums in ‘Ghost Culture’, and has since released on a bevvy of renowned labels; 3024, Hyperdub, Ostgut Ton, Brainfeeder and Ninja Tune. Versatile doesn’t quite cover it. With him for this one are house and techno don Trevino and excellent Dutch producer Makam, with new faces on the grime scene Mumdance and Slackk in Room 2.

Well, what an introduction to 2015 that was! Our ‘free pay back party’ took Studio 338 by storm, and didn’t we say that we’d let the music do the talking!

Now. Back to business!

1st March, 2015 sees us return to our usual Sunday day party slot at Studio 338, and with an extended opening to 1am, we have a heavyweight line-up sorted for you all; Russ Yallop and Robert James join us for their first 338 experience, and the DC10 and Paradise regulars are just as excited to be on that terrace as we are at having them there.

Russ Yallop, now a fully-fledged member of Crosstown Rebels, has been biding his time, honing his production skills for the last few years. Part of a new breed of DJs, with studio skills to match, which includes his close friends Lee Foss, Richy Ahmed and Robert James, Russ Yallop’s sound is infected with warm charm and boundless energy. Fusing fun into dance music again, Russ and his UK-based peers are creating a new strain of house music that is currently taking the worldwide underground by storm, promising bright things for the future.

Robert James. First surfacing amidst a new-wave of talent on Hot Creations, he has now taken his infectious dancefloor sound to all corners of the globe. “My style is about the groove” says Robert, “I play house and techno, but always with groove”. As well as working larger crowds, Robert’s sound lends itself to more intimate club spaces just as well, with close associations to clubs like Mint and My House in Leeds, fabric in London and the Rainbow in Birmingham, as well as institutions like DC:10 and Space in Ibiza.

By now, most know that we at Abode like to give. And we’re not letting up! That’s why we will be issuing £5 early bird tickets for the first time for the 1st March party; a little thank you to the DJ’s, promoters, Abode lovers and 338 regulars that have come to know us and become part of what is not just a party any more on that terrace, but a FAMILY.

See you all there.

Perc Trax rounds off its 10 Years celebrations with a homecoming event at London’s Corsica Studios. Leading the charge is the first joint UK set by Perc & Truss, whose back to back sets have seen them tear up many a European festival in 2014 including two appearances at Awakenings. Ruling over Room 2 is Factory Floor, who play their first Perc Trax event after remixing Forward Strategy Group for the label and inviting Perc to remix ‘Two Different Ways’ for DFA. Joining Factory Floor in Room 2 is Diagonal Records boss Powell, whose experimentally minded percussive output fits perfectly into the Perc Trax world and new addition to the line-up Pete Swanson, whose raw 100% hardware live show is about as raw and visceral as electronic music gets. Nik Void from Factory Floor will also grace Room 2 with a solo live set showcasing her unique take on electronic and guitar noise and newly forged DJ duo Hamburger Ladies, comprising two of the sharpest musical minds from the Quietus music site will open the room.

Along with Perc & Truss in Room 1 is Randomer, who has had a breakout year in 2014 with releases on L.I.E.S. offshoot Russian Torrent Versions and Clone and a starring role in the recent Perc Trax Boiler Room session. Alongside Randomer, Ansome will be playing the kind of modular-based live set that has been key to the rapid rise of this South London Analogue Material. Opening up proceedings in Room 1 is Border Community regular and former resident at The End Avus, a man who has graced many a Perc Trax release including the label’s 2nd release back in 2004.

With 2 LPs under his belt, Fritz Kalkbrenner has taken the electronic music scene by storm and established himself as one of the most influential artists in Europe. The Berlin based Fritz belongs to a rare breed of DJs, a true lover of his craft, fully committed to music, always living up to his reputation.

Driven by his fans’ high expectations for this new album, Fritz just released his most accomplished work so far. He is coming back stronger than ever with “Ways Over Water”, an album already praised to the skies by the critics and by far his most complete and diverse compilation so far. Exploring without compromising, reinventing without disavowing, Fritz Kalkbrenner does what he does best and lays 13 tracks blending heart-warming harmonies and soulful beats.

To mark the release of what is considered by some as the album of maturity, the DJ will tour Europe during the winter season, warming fans all across Europe with his unique heart-warming, soul-inspired emotional touch. For his finale he chose a city that never sleeps: London. Join him on the 28th February for an emotional nocturnal journey and let his blend of melancholic vocals and uplifting feel strike your deepest chord.

Located a stone’s throw away from Central London, Electric Brixton will host Fritz Kalkbrenner’s only date in London this year. Home of some of the most prestigious events in the capital, Electric Brixton recently welcomed DeadMau5’ and Eric Prydz’s epic back-2-back performance, Deep Dish’s only date in the UK since 2008, and legendary sets by John Digweed and Booka Shade to name just a few.

Wrapped in theatrical settings, the sound system and light effects especially adjusted for this occasion will immerse you into the deepest musical journey you’ve experienced so far, from dusk till dawn.
