We'll start this off with saying sorry about Friday night and The Drop being closed down by the council a few hours before the THISISNOTANEXIT party. A total nightmare. Still, we'll have Night Plane back over soon for a live show and keep you abreast of Thisisnotanexit events.
Oooohhhhhhhhh here we go.
For those who needs their THISISNOTANEXIT live fix then there are two London based events over the next couple of weeks which are of note.
First up is the Slutty Fringe 4th Birthday Party at The Big Chill House on Saturday 7th August. It's almost a Thisisnotanexit party as Detachments will be playing live and myself and Matt Waites (aka Moscow) will be DJing alongside the Slutty Fringe people. Moscow remixed Detachments Fear No Fear and has been a friend of Thisisnotanexit from the start so should be a blast.
I'll be doing the early shift from 8.30pm spinning weird synth records, post punk and minimal wave. Proper DJs and proper beatmatching later on after Detachments.

Then on Friday 13th August Detachments head South to play at the quite awesome World Unknown party in Brixton. Hosted by Andy Blake and Joe Hart and playing the sort of music Thisisnotanexit wholeheartedly approves of. I'll let them tell you what the score is.
World Unknown is a monthly session with a soundtrack that takes in elements of Belgian new beat, EBM, electro, acid house, synth wave, techno and dark balearic, and hangs out somewhere in the territory inhabited by Ron Hardy's wild, kinetic take on house in its prototype form at Chicago's legendary Muzic Box circa '83-'86, alternative dance mecca Medusa's in Chicago during roughly the same period and later and the sound of Belgian clubs Boccaccio, Carrere and Ancienne Belgique in the mid to late 80s. Naturally Andy and Joe bring things bang up to date with their own unique take on things, digging deep into their expansive, labour-of-love record collections for those gems that nobody else is playing...yet.
Andy Blake has remixed Detachments new single Holiday Romance into an 18 minute 1 take acid house groove that was exclaimed by the Slutty Fringe guys to be the remix of the year. So watch out for that out soon. Somehow everything on this post links all together. Beautiful.
