Reliable and industrious club brand Broken & Uneven have unveiled their list of events for 2012’s final lap, all commissioned under the umbrella of their The Hydra series.
Friday December 7 will welcome a very special 4 hour DJ set from DFA don/LCD Soundsystem mainman James Murphy. An undisclosed warehouse location will play host to an extended session from one of contemporary dance music’s most totemic figures: expect disco, house, and all sorts of bracing groovework.
On Saturday December 15, the almighty Night Slugs will be bringing their assembled crew of futureshocked producers along to a London warehouse location. Label bosses Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 will be at the helm; the former can be relied upon to delve into the annals of vintage house, techno and grime alongside more contemporary fare, and the latter can be expected to sound as slick and streamlined as his glossy solo productions. Urbane beatmaker Jam City, responsible for this year’s excellent Classical Curves, will be appearing, as will breakthrough ‘Wut’ producer Girl Unit, recently behind the great Club Rez EP. A major special guest is also promised.
New Year’s Eve, meanwhile, will welcome the Border Community crew. James Holden will lead from the front with a selection of frazzled techno, micro-house and ambient electronica. Poster boy Nathan Fake will be showcasing material from recent high watermark Steam Days in a live set. Luke Abbott, meanwhile, will be exploring similarly shoegazy territory with a live set, and wiry techno producer Wesley Matsell will also be on board. The location, again, has yet to be announced.
Last on the list is a mammoth New Year’s Day bash, headed by an as-yet-unnamed “Very Special Guest” tapped up by Electric Minds. Mosca will be airing his rough’n’ready house/2-step hybrid, and NY house don Levon Vincent will be on a classy 4/4 tip. Aus Music take charge in Room 2, with label boss Will Saul holding court over the likes of Dusky, George Fitzgerald, Midland and Sei A. Mano Le Tough and Dolan Bergin also feature. Location, as you might guess, is TBC.
Tickets and further info for all the above are available from the Broken & Uneven website.
