When: 15th January
Where: Corsica Studios
January is often viewed as a month when not a lot goes on with everyone recovering, either physically or financially, from the onslaught that is Christmas and New Years Eve. However, in a somewhat audacious move, London promoters Tessellate have announced the lineup of their first party of the year, and it is staggering to say the least: a multinational, multifaceted and multi-gender affair.
Maurice Fulton sits at the top of the bill, but all the names are as exciting as each other. As someone who is a little press shy, it seems strange that he has maintained this level of popularity since starting out over 20 years ago. But his music and DJing ability speaks for itself; in both fields he consistently breaks the mould with the former demonstrated in his album, The Hydrangeas Whisper released earlier this year on the label Running Back under his BOOF guise.
Glasgow mainstays Harri & Domenic will play an all night set, replicating the long-running Sub Club residency that they’ve become infamous for. Another to play all night is DJ Sotofett, a name that is probably scribbled onto a lot of people’s bucket lists, as one of the acts that they should see before they die. Known for his Sex Tags Mania imprint that he co-runs with his brother Fett Burger, the Norwegian has made a name for himself thanks to the array of musical styles exhibited in his back catalogue, and the eclecticism demonstrated by his weird and wonderful DJ sets. It’s always a spectacle when he plays, whether it’s early evening in a pub or early morning in a dingy basement.
The last name on the bill may not be as well known as the others, but by no means does that negate her ability. Jayda G hails from the Canadian Riviera of Vancouver where a whole host of off-kilter house music has originated from in recent years. So far, in her short career, she’s graced the reputable Trushmix series as well as collaborated with DJ Fettburger on projects for Freakout Cult and Butter Sessions.
They’re still yet to release the full lineup, but it’s good enough as is. Don’t be foolish and pass this one up at just £7.59 a pop + bf (yes they like unconventional pricing!).
