The final Innvervisions showcase for 2012 at We Love Space takes place on 16 September. It’s the full complement of Henrik Schwarz uncompromising live set, Âme combining live electronics and DJing and fan favourite Dixon with his own blend of skill behind the decks. They welcome Norwegian editor Todd Terje in support and Ryan O’Gorman joins percussionist Ian C.

The Discoteca welcomes Carl Craig to the table on 22 July. Detroit’s finest musical export appears in addition to Dutchman Joris Voorn whose sets have grown to mythic proportion over recent We Love seasons. The techy Swiss sounds of Deetron are up after the sweet beats of seasoned campaigner Ryan O’Gorman. On the Terraza it’s a return for the delectable melodies of Miss Kittin, a true original and unique musical force. She’s joined by something of a Leeds triptych with residents PBR Streetgang and Paul Woolford being joined by 2020Vision honcho Ralph Lawson.
We Love invite two special collectives to host the main rooms at Space on 24 June. On the Terraza it’s renowned Leeds label 2020Vision with boss Ralph Lawson heading up proceedings. He is welcoming label-mates Crazy P Soundsystem and residents PBR Streetgang alongside Tensnake and Julio Bashmore for this house-led room. London party starters Chew The Fat! are bringing resident Foamo back to the Discoteca for his first of four shows this summer. Friend of the family Felix Da Housecat brings the main room noise while dOP get the party started with their unique live show of vocal-laden sophisti-house. The energy-charged breaks of A1 bassline and four-to-the-floor house of Jason Bye round up the main room lineups.
2020 Vision are back once again for another 12hr smash-up…
The last 12 months have seen the likes of Ralph Lawson, Steve Bug, Tensnake, Maya Jane Coles, Lindstrom, Ewan Pearson, Crazy P, Motor City Drum Ensemble, jozif, 2020Soundsystem, Mark E, Burnski, David August, Stimming, Julio Bashmore, Simon Baker, Julien Chaptal and more take centre stage at 2020Vision’s epic 12 hour shows.
The last bank holiday session (Read Review Here) was nothing short of legendary, with the label taking their 2020 Party brand across 2 of London’s most breathtaking art & events spaces over a combined period of 20 hours. The bar has well and truly been set and we can’t wait to do it all again on Saturday August 13th which just happens to be 2020 Vision’s 1st Birthday in London.
As always they’re providing Funktion1 Sound throughout, alongside 2020 VJs & full KSS lighting rigs, and as with all their Summer shows they’re starting extra early to make full use of the summer sun and Village Underground’s glorious skylit features. For this extra special show they’ve invited an array of talent that is sure to have both house and disco heads alike licking their lips with anticipation.
As ever, make sure you purchase your tickets early to avoid dissapointment as they are likely to sell out in advance, perhaps even earlier than normal this time with it being the 1st Birthday Show.
Ralph Lawson and Steve Bug took centre-stage at this 12-hour marathon
As we enter the ‘business-end’ of what has already been an enthralling year for the UK’s underground music scene, the abundance of fresh and eclectic sounds continue to break onto our air-waves and into some of London’s most exhilarating party venues.
With Bank Holidays in the Capital long renowned for bestowing adorned ravers with an exciting array of some of the World’s most endearing DJs, playing at some of the City’s most sought-after venues, the year’s record-breaking 6th Bank Holiday weekend proved no different.
On Sunday 29th May, a weekend dubbed by many as the ‘gateway’ to the summer’s clubbing season, East-London welcomed 2020 Vision Recordings into the nouveaux setting of Shoreditch underground tube station.
Headliners Ralph Lawson and Steve Bug took centre-stage at this 12-hour marathon, which lured a capacity crowd of 750 revellers into the terrace-style venue from 10am until 8pm…Playing host to just its second party since the station’s closure in June 2006, 2020 Vision’s label Boss and Berlin’s Poker Flat Recordings front-man, were flanked by none other than local boys Jozif and Ewan Pearson.
As the day drew on, the quintessence of the venue agreeably complimented the endless flow of spirited house music, and with its cutting-electro-funk-edge, the enjoyment of the day’s proceedings was unanimously apparent amongst a diverse crowd of young and old deep tech house aficionados.
Needless to say, 2020 Vision Recordings are more than accomplished in organising and delivering some of the industry’s most invigorating parties, and Guerilla Sounds will undoubtedly find themselves wholly immersed at their next such London event.
As for Shoreditch Underground, there are a further 10 parties planned to take-place here over this summer, so make sure you check-back to Guerilla Sounds and find out which infamous DJs will next be gracing the venue’s Funktion One sound system.
