Gather round.

We have news and musical treats for your aural pleasure.

This week I did a special guest mix for the Slutty Fringe website.

You can read a short interview and listen to the mix here. It's on mixcloud.

A mix in the loosest sense which takes in a whole bunch of stuff that I'm loving at the moment - slow, dark and sexy.

Brain Machine - Alchemia (Bronnt Industries Remix) (Thisisnotanexit)

THISNOTANEXIT: The revolution begins!

THISISNOTANEXIT launches its monthly residency at new Stoke Newington venue THE DROP (underneath the Three Crowns) on Friday May 28th. It's taken us quite some time to find a venue that offers us everything we wanted but we're glad to now call The Drop home on the last Friday of every month.

There will be a policy of no guest DJs. Music will be supplied by Thisisnotanexit Label Head Simon A. Carr and Thisisnotanexit's own Spectral Empire.

The night will commence at 10pm. Expect music you wouldn't hear in a club for the first hour or so as we play the wilder reaches of our record collections.

Detachments will be the house band and will be performing live at 11.30pm. Support bands will be booked for future events.

In an age where the pursuit of the 4/4 beat has returned we'll be rallying against this by playing a broad spectrum of music taking cues from minimal wave, analog synth music, freaky disco, post punk, proto-house and EBM - the main motive being a movement of the head, the heart and the feet all the way into the early hours.

There will be visuals and projections as part of the experience and there will be exclusive Thisisnotanexit gifts - the first 50x people that arrive will receive a limited edition SPECTRAL EMPIRE MIX CD (Cat. No. TINAE 034).

The Drop has a capacity of 100 so we advise getting down early to ensure you get in. If you want to pre-book tickets don't hesitate to get in touch.

The revolution starts here! Let's go!
