After their memorable Halloween Edition, Another Party and The Code are back with a Christmas Special and their final party of what has been a phenomenal year for them, as well as their last show before they turn 4 in January 2014.
Topping the bill is one of house and techno’s major luminaries of recent years, none other than Rekids label boss and sonic specialist Radio Slave. Perhaps most renowned for his seminal melding of Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” with New Order’s “Blue Monday”, the producer otherwise known as Matthew Edwards has often been described by many in the scene as the king of re-edits and remixes. With a list of remix credits that include fellow visionaries such as Armand Van Helden, Slam, UNKLE, DJ Hell and DJ Sneak to name a few, it’s easy to see why. It is perhaps these accolades that have earned him DJ residencies and regular slots at some of the world’s top clubs, including the likes of Fabric, Space, Panorama Bar, Womb and Rex Club to name a few. Booked to play a special extended set for Another Party, this one will not be forgotten for a long time.
Next up is one of Italy’s leading lights in techno, and producer for celebrated labels Life and Death and Hot Creation, the man they call Clockwork. His debut album from earlier this year, titled B.O.A.T.S (“Based On A True Story”), received critical acclaim across the board. Resident Advisor referred to it as a gloriously “dark and dubby dreamscape” and even compared it to Trentemoller’s seminal full-length from 2006, The Last Resort. With several exciting future productions in the pipeline, next year promises to be even bigger for Clockwork.
He’ll be joined by resident DJ and Another Party co-founder, James Manero. He has had a busy year so far, tearing up dancefloors at parties from Secretsundaze in Rome to the Cadenza Music 10 Year Anniversary in London this summer alongside Luciano. Rounding up the bill in Room 1 will be The Code’s very own resident Jimmy Lainas, who’ll be opening up the proceedings.
Headlining room 2 we have RAW PROD LTD, the upcoming collaboration between London based DUEL and DC10 residents DOS, in addition to Shivas Regal, Montana Cruz and Sascha Schwarz.
The show will be held again at Pulse, which is rapidly becoming one of London’s flagship large venues. With its festival grade 3D-mapping and visual display, and state-of-the-art soundsystem across all rooms, not to mention recent successful shows by several established party brands, it’s not difficult to see why this space is a force to be reckoned with, and a popular choice for punters in search of an authentic clubbing experience.
