Torino’s Alfa MiTo Club to Club Festival is happening this weekend, and the line-up is among the best we’ve seen.

If you’re into electronic music and you either live in Italy then there’s no excuse – where else in the country are you going to find a festival that’s happy to place Four Tet and John Talabot next to Holly Herndon and Lee Gamble?

It’s such a good list of acts that you’ll probably need a bit of assistance with weeding through the bulging program, so FACT have come up with our ten must-see picks for the weekend. Don’t forget that if you can’t make the trip, FACT are streaming sets from Dinos Chapman and Factory Floor tomorrow night.

For more information and tickets, don’t forget to head here.

FOREST SWORDS
Saturday November 9

Forest Swords seemed to disappear after 2010’s astonishing debut mini-LP Dagger Paths (which was FACT’s number one album that year), but three years later its follow-up Engravings has finally arrived, and it’s a beauty. Catching the Wirral’s finest export live should be a no-brainer.

MACHINEDRUM
Saturday November 9

It’s fair to say that Travis Stewart is something of a veteran at this point, and supporting his excellent Vapor City full-length, you can expect a collision of jungle, footwork and hip-hop that’s rarely so well executed.

ANDY STOTT
Saturday November 9

Manchester’s inventor of ‘knackered house’ might have spawned a legion of copyists, but there’s nothing quite as enticing as the real thing is there? Hearing ‘Numb’ pelted out of a massive soundsystem should be a goal for any eager festivalgoer.

DINOS CHAPMAN
Thursday November 7

Dinos Chapman might still be best known for his contemporary art, but he’s recently been making waves a purveyor of fine noisy electronic music. His live performances are not for the faint hearted, and that’s just the way we like it.

FOUR TET
Saturday November 9

If you’ve managed to avoid Four Tet in 2013 you’ve probably been living under a rock. The producer has managed to rack up points on Omar Souleyman’s fantastic new album Wenu Wenu as well as managing to find the time to drop his own brand new album Beautiful Rewind. You know what to do.

RUSTIE
Saturday November 9

He might not have scored a cut on Kanye West’s Yeezus (Hudson Mohawke won that battle) but with contributions to Danny Brown’s ecstatic Old, there’s a sense that Scottish producer Rustie’s currency is rising rapidly. His wide reaching taste is legendary (just listen to the still jaw-dropping Glass Swords) so expect the unexpected.

KYLE HALL
Friday November 8

Hot on the heels of his very accomplished The Boat Party LP, Kyle Hall is showing the world that Detroit can keep on taking it – bankruptcy or no bankruptcy. If you like techno with an eye on the long-gone classic era, then Hall’s your man.

LEE GAMBLE
Friday November 8

Reworking his memories of jungle past into decaying ambient lullabies on Diversions 1994-1996 was a good move for ex-Brummie Lee Gamble. He’s been dragging his laptop around the festival circuit ever since, treating audiences to his unforgiving fusion of high-end electronics and smelly raver sweat.

holden-11.6.2013

JAMES HOLDEN
Thursday November 7/Friday November 8

By day he’s the esteemed boss of pastoral techno outpost Border Community, so it’s hard to figure out how he found the time to record the excellent full-length The Inheritors. If that record was any indication, his two sets (one live and one DJ) should be a doozy.

kode9-11.6.2013

KODE9
Saturday November 9

What can we say about Kode9 that hasn’t already been said (probably by us)? He’s the boss of Hyperdub, he’s released some of the best bass-heavy (dare we say dubstep?) records of the last decade and he’s also a damn fine DJ. Errr, yeah – you know what you have to do, right?
