Feast are very happy to announce that after a great year, 93 Feet East has asked them to take over for New Year’s Eve. Feast obviously wanted to finish the year on a high so they have brought in three individuals, each with their own unique style that should keep the vibe flowing.
Considered as one of the major new talents of electronic club music., he was born in 1988 in Livorno, Italy. Already as a child he developed an incredible passion for music. After some time Ilario became familiar with the club world and gained his first experiences with mixing and DJing. His early club residencies in Italy, in legendary Cameretta and Pachamama Club, which helped Ilario to improve his musical skills and unique mixing technique. Here, Ilario‘s career as a DJ started and in a short period of time he became a famous newcomer DJ in Italy. His DJ sets reached new levels of clubbing experiences, with his early gigs at Circoloco and Tenax Ilario‘s reputation started to rise outside of Italy. Today he performs in many of the major clubs in Germany, UK, Spain and Netherlands. But also in South America he is famous for his unique combination of house music and Latin American rhythms.
As a producer his burning passion also evident. At the age of 16 he started to produce music and to develop his very own vision of contemporary electronic dance music by integrating various influences and genres to create his unique sound. Up to now Ilario Alicante has released 10 releases, many of which can be found in the record bags of artists like Sven Väth, Ricardo Villalobos, Marco Carola, Luciano and Nick Curly to name a few. One of the most successful EPs was “Living Near Africa”, released in 2008 on Cecille Records.
Since then Ilario has developed an unparallel artistic perfrormance as a DJ and live performer which made him a frequent guest in some of the best clubs around the globe, from Columbia to Portugal, and Italy to UK. Ilario Alicante will clearly demonstrating his distinctive musical expression
Having been insistently pulling and pushing at the boundaries of house music for over 10 years. Witnessing a 2002 set at Matt Tolfrey‘s first residency at The Bomb left such a mark on Craig Richards that he invited the then 21-year-old to play at a Tyrant night in fabric a few months later. The close affinity to the London club continues to this day, either on main room duty, hosting label parties or on the main stage debuting his live act with Inxec in October 2010.
His energy and desire to raise himself above his peers is now recognised by clubs world wide. With Panorama Bar, D Edge, Rex and Warehouse 702 all falling for the wobble and bounce that characterises Matt’s unique style. Known to record buyers through his family of labels, Leftroom, Leftroom Ltd and Left’d as well as the edits label Foot and Mouth, he has released bombs from the likes of Jamie Jones, Pablo Cahn and Lee Curtiss over the 5 year history of the imprint. Tracks such as Audiojack’s “Robot” in 2006 and Ito & Star’s “Sudoko Kid” in 2007 became stand up classics after being unearthed by Leftroom. With Matt Tolfrey on the decks, future classics in this league are usually just a mix away, holding resolutely to his mantra not to release a track he would not play.
Few producers of recent years have exploded onto the underground house scene like Crosstown Rebels‘ Russ Yallop. While some producers spend years finding their feet, Russ made a clear statement of intent with “I Can’t Wait” his debut release on Crosstown Rebels, a solid cut of nu-school house that was charted across the board by everyone from Jamie Jones to M.A.N.D.Y. and was featured by Heidi on her ‘In New Music We Trust’ show on BBC Radio One. Meanwhile, “Rock Me” on the B-side was picked up by DJ Mag and featured on their ‘Best of British’ covermount compilation at the start of this year. Named as ‘One To Watch’ in Electronic Beats magazine and with future releases on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss‘ Hot Creations and Crosstown‘s new ‘Rebellion’ label offshoot, it should come as little surprise that Russ Yallop got snapped up by ‘Ibiza Voice’ to mix a recent instalment of their hugely popular podcast series despite being relatively new to the scene.
Long-time friend and now a fully-fledged member of Crosstown Rebels, Russ Yallop has been biding his time, honing his production skills for the last few years. Part of a new breed of DJs, with studio skills to match, which includes his close friends Lee Foss, Richy Ahmed and Robert James, Russ Yallop‘s sound is infected with warm charm and boundless energy. Fusing fun into dance music again, Russ and his UK-based peers are creating a new strain of house music that is currently taking the worldwide underground by storm, promising bright things for the future.

This Saturday sees the almighty Cocoon landing in London for a rave up at Ewer Street Car Park, where it has a night and a half on the cards. Cocoon has organised a Room 1, 8 hour back2back marathon of three of Romania’s finest, [a:rpia:r] founders Raresh, Pedro (Petre Inspirescu) and Rhadoo, for whom minimal goes epic with a techno meets house vibe that is energetic and boost all the qualities of a pure Cocoon sound. Ilario Alicante and Markus Fix will be providing the Room 2 antics with their slick style blending the finest of tech-house and techno, things are going to be swinging.
But Cocoon doesn’t plan on finishing up their, as Jaded will be providing the official Cocoon Afterparty shenanigans with a Cocoon special guest confirmed to join Raymundo Rodriguez and Chris Stanford in commanding the main room down at Cable. While the balcony room will be given a run for its money with appearances from Mouj, Teva, Rufus and London key player Ceri. You could pretty much sum up this Jaded afterparty as a morning of London’s rawest form of the underground’s finest becoming prolific players on the scene. An afterparty taht will surely do Cocoon proud!
This weekend proves once again that the underground scene in London is still alive….
London sees yet another weekend of superb music and once again Londoners and visitors are spoilt for choice between, The Gallery, Cocoon, Global Underground, Nature or Nurture, Jaded and god knows how many low-key parties shaking up London Town. But we feel the main clubs which will be rocking the weekend are Ministry of Sound, Fabric and Cable and all very close to each other.
Ministry of Sound will be hosting The Gallery for a Friday night of Progressive House featuring Hernan Cattaneo & Danny Howells playing back to back for 4 hours, not to mention Henry Saiz and Guy J getting in on the action. While Saturday night leaves the way for Global Underground with Trafik and James Talk. Fabric puts on a special night of Cocoon where Sven Vath, Onur Ozer, Matt Tolfrey, Ilario Alicante and resident Craig Richards will be joined by a few other guests. This is a night worth getting in on, which is where we will be! But that’s not to say that Nature or Nurture won’t be rocking down at Cable with Terry Francis and Nathan Coles [Wiggle / Fabric] playing back to back. Followed by the Jaded “6th Birthday” bash kicking off at 5am in Cable.
And if you really need some good music to get you warmed up for the weekend, we can recommend this great mix by Benji which is just the right amount of deep moving tech house to get anyone in the mood for a good party!
This weekend is surely going to be a storm for everyone involved in Cocoon’s visit to England, as well as for Liverpool’s Nation and London’s Fabric.
Cocoon will be making a double date tour this weekend, kicking on Friday at Nation, Circus presents the Cocoon night with a line-up of some of the industry’s most established DJs; Booka Shade, Guy Gerber, Raresh and Onur Ozer. Not to mention Circus top man Yousef and Cocoon legend Sven Väth.
With Circus’ involvement in hosting a Cocoon night with such a line-up, Liverpool’s Nation is going to be electric.
Moving on to Saturday night and Cocoon will be landing at Fabric and how are we pleased to see the legendary Sven Väth gracing Fabric once again. Here Sven will be joined in Room 1 by Turkish DJ Onur Özer, known to music lovers for his offering on the Green and Blue mix series last year, as well as London’s very own Matt Tolfrey, who are surely going to be shaking things up. Room 2 will be just as momentous with Chile’s Dinky being joined by Italy’s Ilario Alicante and Marcus Fix, who has acclaimed releases on Cécille, Oslo and Cocoon. And last but by no means least, the intimate Room 3 will be given a run through its paces with Craig Richards and Jozif rocking through the night.
If after this weekend of madness you still feel like you could do with some more, make sure you get yourself down to Cable, London Bridge, for Jaded’s 6th Birthday where you are sure to experience possibly the greatest after party in the Capital. Running Sunday morning from 5am till 2pm the renowned Raymundo Rodriguez will be joined by Bass Culture boss D’Julz, Circo Loco legend’s System of Survival, Rythmatic’s Stathis Lazarides and Wesley Razzy. As well as Tommi & Colette Delalez. A morning not to be missed!

Movement are back with a their 5th edition in Torino, which by the sounds of things is sure to impress….
Movement, which will be held from 28th – 31st October, is destined to leave its mark in Torino, a city that is gradually developing in popularity for music. Torino played host to the Winter Olympics back in 2006, as well as the imaginative “Club to Club” project and of course the huge “Movement” music festival.
Last year saw Movement taking hold of the Pala Olimpico, ex Isozaki Stadium, where we saw the likes of Stacey Pullen, Derrick May, Luciano, , Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin. Great line-ups but the only draw back was the location, as high hits and kick drum booms echoed around the entrance to the Pala Olimpico, the atmosphere was slightly lost, especially because it was so huge.
Though this year looks like there has been an improvement in terms of locations, multi-locations, but the Pala Olimpico is still on the list.
This year we can be expecting a couple of workshops and showcases organised as well as several pre-parties to get people warmed up for the event: -
18 Sep – Raresh, Torino
02 Oct – Shaun Reeves, Firenze
08 Oct – Derrick Carter, Torino
09 Oct – Derrick Carter, Mantova
15 Oct – Kevin Saunderson, Roma
22 Oct – Trus’ Me, Torino
From the website nothing is really clear or confirmed apart from the pre-parties and we are only able to gather who is headlining the 4 day event and the locations involved. But as to when the DJs are playing and what venues, it’s not clear. Although checking one DJs diary we can see when he is playing.
So all that can be confirmed is the following: -
Politecico di Torino (workshops)
Fnac Store (Red Bull Music Academy Panel)
Museo Nazionale del Cinema (Showcase)
Blanco Club Lounge
The Chemical Brothers Sven Väth
2 Many DJ’s
Guillaume & The Coutu Dumont
Anthony “Shake” Shakir
