This is one to get excited about.
Label of the moment Needwant have put together a belter of a line-up this Friday at Basing House. If you’re planning to be within a few hundred miles of London this weekend, we recommend you prioritise a visit (that trip to IKEA really can wait. You don’t even really need to go.)
Headlining are Casino Times. The creators of our sixth favourite record of 2012 (no less) are on fire. ‘I Wanna Know’ was accompanied by ‘Trust’ at the end of last year, and new track ‘Heart Strings’ picks up where these two house bangers left off. It’s been an impressive few months from the Oxford duo and they promise to whip up what can only be described as a dancefloor frenzy on Friday.
Also playing is Ejeca, who was responsible for some of the fruitiest beats of 2012, including the ubiquitous ‘Horizon’, this gorgeous Panama remix and ‘You’, his moody collaboration with fellow Northern Irishmen Bicep. ‘Natal’ is his new one, and it’s a cracker:
Support is provided by Needwant boss Sean Brosnan (not to be confused with his namesake, Pierce Brosnan’s son. For the avoidance of doubt, their respective LinkedIn profiles can be found here and here). The one we’re concerned with here is an extremely well-respected DJ, amongst plenty of other things. For more info on him, this interview from last year is great.
“But how can I get tickets for this musical extravaganza?”, we hear you ask. Well, you can buy tickets here.
Alternatively, we’ve teamed up with Needwant to give away a pair of tickets. Just let us know your favourite track of the year so far (in the comments below, on Facebook or Twitter) and the tickets could be yours. We’ll pick a winner at midday on Thursday (to give you time to mentally prepare yourselves), and we’ll use your answers to inform our January playlist (our Best of 2012 one is here).
Job’s a good ‘un.
