New London party series Clock Strikes 13 has announced its line-ups for this autumn/winter.
As previously reported, Clock Strikes 13 is a new party series from the team behind The Hydra. From October 2 to December 19, it will host parties across a variety of London venues (Dance Tunnel, Corsica Studios, Bloc), teaming up with the likes of XL, Principe Discos, Boxed x Local Action, 1080p Collection, Houndstooth, Ninja Tune, Eclair Fifi and more.
Update: The Liberation Technologies show has been moved to Room 2 at XOYO, with Simian Mobile Disco, James Ruskin and more downstairs. Full details here.
There’s a lot to get through, but some highlights: the series kicks off with Lex, who’ll host a rare London show by Prefuse 73 (Oct 2). Principe Discos take DJ Marfox, DJ Firmeza and Nidia Minaj to Dance Tunnel (Oct 9), while Powell, Container, Lukid and more represent Liberation Technologies at Bloc (Oct 23).
Boxed and Local Action bring 16 DJs to Corsica, including DJ Q, Kahn & Neek, Rabit, Deadboy, Yamaneko and Finn b2b Grandmixxer (Oct 3), while Ninja Tune have three shows in the series – the stand-out is at St John Hackney with King Midas Sound and Fennesz, Dean Blunt and Shackleton (presenting something called Powerplant). Elsewhere, Bok Bok curates Village Underground with Karizma, Total Freedom and more (Oct 31) and XL bring Zomby, Special Request, Mumdance, Mssingno and Hugo Massien to the same venue (Nov 11). There’s also appearances by u-Ziq, Andy Stott, Biosphere and more scattered across the series.
