FUN & GAMES (PART 4)

Some funky – some just plain freaky! Here are some of our favourite snap shots from the Halloween Community night with Basement Jaxx.

They’re not dressed up and it’s not the 80s but they deserve a place on the post for bringing good vibes and sporting a scrunchie…

JAMIE JONES x COMMUNITY

Don’t let the sun go down…

So the nights are finally drawing in and it may feel like summer never happened… But don’t despair as on Saturday 6th  November Community welcomes Welsh wunderkind turned international trend-setter – Jamie Jones.

A true hero of underground house, Jamie has become the torchbearer for the new sounds of deep disco-infused house music. Just two weeks ago he was smashing the closing parties at the notorious Circo Loco (DC-10) and Space in Ibiza. We’ve managed to pin him down for a rare headline set in London.
Let’s hope he brings some of that Mediterranean sunshine with him!

Backing him up is Parisian upstart Le Loup, whose warm house productions earn’t him a seminal debut release on New York luminary label Wolf + Lamb.

Advance tickets for Jamie Jones’s show at Plan B can be found here.

Heres’ a classic tasty cut from Jamie and Wolf + Lamb boss Gadi Mizrahi to keep you warm in the meantime:

JAM HOT X KENNY DOPE

We are very excited to announce that one of our favourite producers, Kenny Dope will be joining us for a Jam Hot session on the 12th November!

We don’t need to tell you that Kenny ”Dope” Gonzales is one half of house music production and remix team Masters at Work. He has also put out a ton of hip hop records as Kenny Dope,  including 1994’s seminal  Pushin Dope’ EP.

For our session he will playing a Hip Hop set something he hasn’t done in London for more than ten years,  and it might be another ten before he agrees to do it again.  For full details check the facebook event here and grab the early bird tickets here.

To get you in the mood we have  picked one of our favourite house records and one of our favourite hip hop records from his huge back catalogue.

 

TODD TERJE X RBMA

We were blown away when we saw Todd Terje play at the Red Bull Music Academy edition of Secretsundaze earlier in the year. This was partly due to the party being held at Paramount,  which is set on the 32nd floor of the Centre Point building on Tottenham Court Road, but also because the Norwegian disco boy wonder played an absoulute belter of a set.

Red Bull took the time to record the set (which from our recent experiences isn’t always the most straight forward thing to get right) and have made it available here.

Advance tickets for Todd Terje’s show at Plan B can be found here.

THE MASK

So, ahead of this Saturday’s huge show with Moodymann, we thought we would do a Top 5 of our favourite masked DJs / producers. It seems to have become a bit of a thing…

1. Moodymann

2. MF Doom


3. DJ Stingray


4. Zomby


5. Sbtrkt


To be fair Doom should probably get the number one spot, but we are just a little bit obsessed with Moodymann this week. First person to name one more masked DJ / producer wins a free ticket to Saturday nights Community party with Moodymann, Floating Points and Wbeeza.

Email office@planbgroup.co.uk to enter. Winners will be announced on Friday.
