Preview: comm•une 2nd Birthday


When: 27th June
Where: Dance Tunnel, London
Tickets: £7 (+ bf)

It’s hard to believe that London’s revered party gang, comm•une are already turning two years young next weekend. Yet another knees-up affair will take place on Saturday 27th June at a favourite East London joint, the Dance Tunnel, where the last comm•une party saw an enraptured member of the crowd headbutt the DJ booth in a state of sheer ecstasy.

Soundtracking the birthday celebrations this time around will be the Bristolian duo Outboxx, whose analogue house tropes and jazz-inflected grooves have been dropped by the likes of Detroit heavyweight Ryan Elliot and Panorama Bar resident Tama Sumo. As well as this will be electronic beatmaker and Stamp favourite K15, whose releases on WotNot Music and Kyle Hall’s Wild Oats flaunt an ability for diversity rarely seen within the world of electronic music.

After falling in love with the 22a imprint, who better to invite along for the party than the label runner himself. Tenderlonious‘ expansive musical journeys are as entrancing as they are brilliant. As an accomplished saxophonist and member of an innovative jazz quartet, Tenderlonious continues to make jazz cool. As well as these, we have the enigmatic Olsen. A name rarely seen on London billings, whose monstrous debut album on Super Recordings took us all by surprise, we cannot wait to hear a set of understated floorfillers that bear resemblance to the very best of Floating Points.

As if it couldn’t get any better, the event will be thrown as a fundraiser for Youth Music, the UK’s leading charity using music to transform the lives of disadvantaged children and young people. All profits from the night (from advance tickets, door/bar takings and donation buckets) will be donated to the charity, with the billed artists agreeing to waive their fee in order to make it possible. A night too wholesome both musically and philanthropically to go amiss!
