Live : Melt! Picknick

11:33 AM

Bad news for all yet non-ticketholders: this year’s Melt! Festival (July 15 to 17) is already sold out (only a few and special passes can be bought here according to the festival team). If you still want to experience a great dance at the fantastic festival area of the Ferropolis (or just want to warm-up for the actual festival as planned) you still get the chance to do so on this Sunday. Then the second Melt! Picknick, as the Melt! Weekender an official pre-party for the big summer weekend, will take place near Gr√§fenhainichen.

This year’s curator is an old friend of Melt! and long-term collaborator. So for instance Alex Ridha alias Boys Noize’ gig with his friend Erol Alkan at Melt! 2009 is still unforgotten. Now the Berlin-based producer and DJ has again invited his British mate plus other well-known acts and creative partners such as Tiga, Djedjotronic and Jan Driver to the former Anhalt open-face mine. Alkan will also bring his New Zealand Phantasy label artist Connan Mockasin with, who’s one of the last real weirdos in the game and the creator of the beautifully pop music re-creating Please Turn Me Into The Snat. In terms of stylistic diversity he can also compete with Nottingham’s Lone, although the latter is rather coming from the electronic corner of modern music.

London : Dummy’s 2nd Birthday

09:00 AM

One of our favourite sites on the net, London’s DummyMag.com, has just returned to the screen yesterday, ending a few, but sad days of abstinence, forced by a server collapse. And the comeback was accompanied by some rather good news: The magazine will celebrates it 2nd birthday with a decent party at the local XOYO on February 25.

With four albums in the recent four years Matt Cutler alias Lone has been one most constant and busiest producers in the UK scene, not seldom anticipating next year’s trends. Two other included artists and rising masterminds of the zeitgeist are R&S Records’ Pariah and Becoming Real alias Toby Ridler from London. An as big coup should be the very first live appearance of Snortex, a new ambient project by no other than Sam Willis, who’s one half of both, kraut-influenced band Walls and the growing El Dorado of mixes that is the blog Allez Allez. There will also be another, yet secret act.

Advance tickets are £6 and can be ordered here.
