Svetlana‘s monthly party returns to the Alibi in Dalston tonight. Running since August last year it’s established itself as one of London’s most diverse mid-week nights, but musically and crowdwise, that might move from a deep house set from Well Rounded’s Donga to a sweaty hip hop mosh pit at the hands of Brey. Tonight’s instalment sees sets from Svetlana producer Microburst, Brighton’s Donky Pitch via label founder Grinel, and NTS and You’ll Soon Know main man Tim Parker, alongside Svetlana apparatchik Thunderloops.
In the build up to the night the guys at Svetlana have kindly given us ‘City’, pulled from Kelpe‘s entrancing ‘Bags Of Time’ EP, to giveaway to our readers. ‘City’ is quite the sleazy little number: all tough, grinding bass and reclined drums, before cascading synth washes and nimble intricacies take the track in a whole new direction.

Entry is free and proceedings begin around 10pm.
