Found A Cure is TK (Special Request) and Carl (Heavenly Jukebox)

Since their original Social night out, Broader Than Broadway ended many years ago this has become their occasional party where they get together to play house, disco, afrobeat, garage and other electronic music. This will be their first time back at The Social together.

The Heavenly Jukebox is Heavenly Recordings very own DJ collective, getting together throughout the summer to play at festivals around the country. This year they have already played at Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Isle of Wight, Green Man, V and will also be heading to Bestival and No.6 in September.

Special Request have been putting on some of London’s best undergound garage nights in recent years. Starting out life as a closed shop Facebook group for people to share music, they have gone on to host some special parties every few months and regular sessions on NTS radio from resident DJs TK and Louis Not Lewis

Join TK and Carl on Friday from 7pm

In the meantime here’s a mix that Carl put together for the Bestimix series early in the year

Every Wednesday Night

HEAT022_hww_eflyer_final

Hot Wuk Wednesdays is the weekly bashment dance spot, The Heatwave’s bashment headquarters.

What is bashment? Bashment is the ultra hype sound of modern Jamaican music: the excitement of rewinds, incredible dancing, the rammed dance floor and amazing vibe of a Caribbean rave.

The Heatwave’s midweek party turns The Social basement into a mini Notting Hill Carnival. Get rum drunk and collect your free whistle and horn, you might see the most incredibly acrobatic dance move or hear the wickedest MC jumping on the mic. One thing is certain: the vibe will be INSANE. 100% smiling, 100% dancing, 100% big tunes.

Every Wednesday we rave like it’s a Saturday!

Anna!

Anna Greenwood (sm)-0033

Anna Greenwood’s Friday Night Disco is back this Friday at the bar. 

Her parties bring you the very best in pop, rock, disco and a dollop of good old fashioned fun with dancing positively encouraged from the off – Anna generally leads from the front in this respect!

The Queen of Guilty Pleasures took the time to answer these questions I stole from a copy of Smash Hits from 1982 . .

If you were called up to fight in a war, would you (a) join up, (b) plead insane, (c) emigrate, or (d) be a conscientious objector?

I’d like to think ‘d’, but often this involves staying in tents or up trees in protest and I am not one for outdoor living. Bricks and electricity are two of my favourite things. So maybe ‘b’ is the best option here.

Who do you think is the silliest person in pop music?

Chris Brown for being such a massive bastard.

What are your ambitions?

Grammy / Oscar / Emmy / Tony. In any order would be fine, ta.

Ever posed in front of a mirror pretending to be somebody?

Yes, every day. Was Madonna betwixt the ages of seven and er 27. Now it’s a combo of Donna Summer, Grace Jones, Tina Turner, Lady Gaga AND Madonna. Like a compilation album in 3-d.

Is there anything in life worse than going to the launderette?

An ill fitting shoe. Oh and you know, war, poverty, George Osborne etc.

Were you ever beaten up at school

No, but I punched Robert Guest in the dinner queue once. And I kicked a girl at Guides. They (the Guides) rang my mum and suggested I didn’t come back again. In my defence, the girl was being a bit racist, but Robert Guest really hadn’t done much wrong. Poor Robert Guest. Punched by a girl.

If you were an animal, what kind would you be?

A lion would be good, being all proud and boss of the jungle and that, but the lady ones don’t get the manes and that’s what it’s all about really. I wouldn’t want to be a man lion. I wouldn’t want to be a man. So maybe a lady lion in a mane wig. It could start a craze in the lion world.

What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened to you recently?

Warming up for a school band and then Billy Ocean within the space of a couple of hours.  I am a very hip dj.

What’s the best thing about finally becoming successful?

Oh God, is this the best it gets?

And what’s the worst thing about it?

The reality that this is the best it gets.

If you weren’t a pop star, what world you like to be?

Can I be a pop star first and then see what else I fancy please?

Where would you most like to live?

In a castle made of gold.

FRIDAY NIGHT DISCO IS ON THIS FRIDAY 11th JULY FROM – 8.30pm IN THE BASEMENT

▲ Damo Suzuki

Damo Suzuki needs no introduction right? Right.

▲ Andrew Weatherall

The legend that is Andrew Weatherall needs no introduction either!

We are very honoured to have Andrew grace the record decks at this very special show. Expect to hear fantastic records of the highest order!

▲ TOY

Idle Fret favourites and one of the best bands in the country right now! TOY will be coming down to play an exclusive set with Damo Suzuki.

▲ Listing Ships

Listing Ships are a nautically-themed, instrumental quartet who skillfully blend their ferocious wall of sound guitar histrionics with Holy Fuck influenced electronica and jazz rhythms.

They cite inspirations from classic krautrock like Can, Harmonia and Neu!, sample-heavy intricate electronica like Boards Of Canada, Amon Tobic, plus expansive, exploratory guitar music like Tarentel, The Alps and Collections Of Colonies Of Bees

‘Reminiscent of similarly relentless Factory Floor, Listing Ships are bursting with exciting ideas. Their seemingly unending and coruscating guitar lines and excellent drumming are the foundation of a superb set’ – The Line of Best Fit

▲ Mwahaha

All the way from Oakland, California and special guests at the Warp Records showcase at this years SXSW, Mwahaha will bring their spiraling sonic landscapes of instruments filtered through an array of analogue synths. Analog drum machines exist in harmony with live drums over morphing walls of sound and haunting vocals, sounding something like acid-dropping monks bellowing Gregorian chants tinged with a starburst of colours.

‘An inspired exercise in dynamics that could induce bright ecstasy or full panic, or both’ – Spin Magazine

▲ Luke Insect

We are pleased to say that cult graphic designer and illustrator Luke Insect has designed the ace poster for this show and we can’t wait to hear some of his great record collection when he DJs on the night.

▲ Mark Raison (Monkey Picks)

Beatnik Modernist who rambles about records, books, films, art and stuff on his excellent Monkey Picks blog. Mark has one of the best record collections around, so there will plenty of brilliant 45’s played on the night.
