Heading back to the UK today for the first time since the end of February and cannot wait. Unfortunately, I have very little time in London because of a series of prearranged engagements which is a shame because there is a veritable feast of good electronic music all weekend.
Mike Simonetti brings his 'Italians Do It Better' circus to Koko to support Lindstrom on Thursday, a venue that will really complement the sleazy cosmic turbulence produced by some of the best contemporary disco artists around. Simonetti is also playing at the Horse and Hound with Bill Brewster who I really knew fuck all about until I listened to a couple of his mixes and realized it was him who wrote 'Last Night a DJ Saved my Life'. His sets are comprised of dance music in the most vague sense from the 1970s to the present day and are really something.
On Friday, the AMAZING Omar S is in town supported by Donato Dozzy, whilst Robert Hood takes things up a notch at Cable. And on Saturday, Ellen Alien is at Fabric whilst Frankie Knuckles is at the site of what used to be The End, now called The Den & Centro (crap name).
Hats off London, that's a pretty fucking good lineup...
