Studio Barnhus @ Corsica Studios 03.09.16

If you’re still on the hunt for a plan Saturday, put down the listings guide. We got you.

Trouble Vision have done it again with a Studio Barnhus label showcase down at Corsica Studios. Axel Boman, Kornél Kovács and Pedrodollar, founding trio of the Swedish label, will all be gracing the decks on Saturday night, bringing their house-but-so-much-more-than-house sound to South London.

Kornel’s gone and done a taster mix to whet the appetite:

As the accompanying RA profile described it, ‘House music for the end of summer’.

Tessellate @ Corsica Studios, 16.01.15

We can’t get enough of Fort Romeau right now. Having welcomed him to the decks for our night at Plan B in December and swooned over his latest release on Ghostly just today, here we are imploring you to catch him at Corsica Studios on Friday night. Whatever next?


The South London man will find himself on home turf and in good company on Friday, with Genius of Time headlining and Baba Stiltz also on the bill. The former’s ‘Juno Jam’ was one of the most compelling listens of 2014, with the Swedish duo on many people’s radars since the 2010 release of ‘Same Old Place’. And to get a sense of what Baba Stiltz will be laying down, check out his recent mix for Tim Sweeney:

All in all it’s another compelling line-up from the excellent Tessellate, who have gone from strength to strength since their launch in 2013. You’d be well-advised to read more on Facebook or just bypass that entirely and grab one of the remaining 100 tickets on Resident Advisor.

Sessions @ Corsica Studios

This Friday sees Sessions, the weekly in-house promoters at Corsica Studios, curate a line-up only HD dreams are made of. The club nestled in the heart of Elephant & Castle will play host to a whole load of top DJs and you can be there for a mere eight quid. The music at Sessions’ nights consistently delivers and this will be no different.


Headlining is Fort Romeau. We’ve banged on about the South London producer enough on these pages so we’ll just let the music do the talking – the former member of La Roux is HOT property right now.

In support besides Hubie Davison and LK Aka Lee Konitz comes Urulu and Youandewan. Since running his own label Amadeus and having had releases on Let’s Play House and Exploited, Urulu has attracted a huge following. Check out his Let’s Play House mix for an extended listen but we feel his remix of Jessie Ware’s ‘Sweet talk’ went a tad unnoticed, it’s a banger:

Lastly a light must be shone on the Berlin-based Youandewan, whose recent ‘FM Jam’ EP on Aus Music shows off “his adroit handling of classic house and techno tropes”. 4/5 on RA ain’t bad.

Tickets are currently at the reduced price of just £8, one of the many good reasons you should get on down to CS this Friday night. Head here to bag a ticket and tell all your mates about it here.


Future Disco with Benoit & Sergio and Juan Maclean @ Corsica Studios, 01.06.14

This Saturday Future Disco return to Corsica Studios for something of a DFA-fest. The label’s Juan Maclean provides support for DC-based duo, Benoit & Sergio. Further back-up comes in the form of The Mekanism and FD head honcho, Sean Brosnan – but the main draws are likely to be Benoit & Sergio’s dreamy floor-fillers (such as ‘New Ships’ below) and Juan Maclean’s slightly harder-edged house grooves. Future Disco have been kind enough to lob a pair of tickets our way: go here to win them, or here to buy some.

Jacques Greene @ Corsica Studios, Saturday 22nd October

Jacques Greene @ Corsica Studios, Saturday 22nd October

The upside of not seeing the sun again until June 2012 is that you’re more inclined to find yourself in a sweaty room for the evening, possibly listening to some RnB-flecked house music.

If this sounds seasonally appropriate then check out Canadian youngster Jacques Greene’s first headline show at Corsica Studios on October 22nd. Berlin’s Leisure System Records have put together a tasty line-up, negotiating everything from West Coast Club from Lazer Sword to feet-shufflin’ electronica from Machinedrum.

For all Jacques Greene’s appeal as a DJ, it was his production which brought him to our attention. ‘Another Girl’, released earlier this year on Glasgow’s LuckyMe label, will tear the place down if dropped on the 22nd.

Lauer – Birsk/Kilian

One punchy house tune, the other more reflective, ‘Birsk/Kilian’ are the yin and yang of Lauer’s recent release on Futureboogie. Quality start to the year from the German producer and one half of Tuff City Kids.

Talking of which, if you’re in London-town this weekend we’d highly recommend a visit to Corsica Studios on Friday night. Said duo are dropping by for a hefty five hour set. With Telephones and Trouble Vision residents in support, it’s not one to miss.

Check their recently-dropped remix of Cologne-based Vimes‘ new single, ‘Mind’, out on Needwant this Friday:

Formation – Control

South London duo Formation and their cowbell-flecked, groove-ridden tune ‘Control’ are here to ease along your Friday afternoons. It joins ‘All The Rest Is Noise’ on the Leon Vynehall-produced ‘Under The Tracks’ EP, forthcoming on Meno Records.

Londoners: get yourself to Corsica Studios on Thursday 26th November to see them in the flesh.

And for yet more cowbells:

Auntie Flo – Theory of Flo

Auntie FloThe long-term Huntleys & Palmers stalwart Auntie Flo (guy on the right) is getting some serious heat right now. And rightly so. He – Brian d’Souza to his nearest and dearest – released his new album ‘Theory of Flo’ just last week and we’re writing this to say it’s good. Really good.

Recorded in London, Glasgow and Havana, it features collaborations with The Noisettes’ lead singer Shingai Showina, Ghanaian singer Anbuley and Esa Williams. The latter (guy on the left) plays a vital role in the Auntie Flo live set and has regularly DJ’d alongside him at their Highlife nights, a party that was spawned by Huntleys & Palmers’ domination of the Glaswegian club scene.

H&P’s penchant for combining world music with electronic sounds seems to finally be getting the recognition it deserves. The Guardian waxed lyrical over their ability to take world music into the future, their regular Rinse FM slot is thriving and Auntie Flo himself’s got an exciting London schedule of late, taking down Rough Trade, Corsica Studios and the Bussey Building. Lead single from his new album ‘So In Love’ premièred recently on Boiler Room and just this week Annie Mac featured it on her Free Music Monday service:

There’s a lot more where that came from too. ‘Theory of Flo’ is full of hypnotic looped samples that are destined to stick in your head. There are slow-paced, contemplative moments in ‘Dreamer’ and album-closer ‘For Mihaly’, but ultimately the whole album keeps your toes tapping. ‘Dance Ritual I & II’ pack a punch with the back-to-back steel drums and euphoric piano combo, and the tribal calls on ‘Hewal3’ and ‘Waiting For A (Woman)’ are totally infectious. The latter’s been an HD fave since Gilles Peterson featured it a while back:

For the Londoners amongst you, the good news is you don’t have long to wait to see him play. Most notably, he’s doing an album launch party at the whopping Free Rotation x Gottwood x Field Maneuvers party this Saturday at the Bussey Building. Not only are all profits going to the Red Cross Refugee Crisis Fund, there’s an excellent line-up to boot – including Blawan, Christian S and Medlar’s Tony & The Waves. It looks real juicy; you can see all the details here. But be hasty as we hear tickets are running low.

Oh yeah, and go buy ‘Theory of Flo‘ as soon as.

Fort Romeau – Unititled

Your boy Fort Romeau and Warm head honcho Ali Tillet have gone and set up a new label called Cin Cin, aiming to provide a series of split 12″s which will feature some of their friends old and new. Sounds good to us.

First up FR himself unleashes this dreamy techno number. Stay tuned for the flip side, which is due to feature Nick Hoppner.

For more on the South London producer, a recent Dekmantel podcast featured Fort Romeau’s set at Corsica Studios from a few months back. You can stream the thing below, that’s if you’ve got a spare SIX HOURS. He played some of his favourites all night long…

Akase – Rust

Formed in Leeds, written in London and produced in Berlin, this collaborative project between Midland and Robbie Redway has been a long time in the making. Not only does the idea of Midland moving away from the dancefloor prove to be an intriguing one, excitement levels were heightened when we heard Ewan Pearson was to be the man at the production helm.

Akase are now set to release their full length debut album later this year on !K7 Records, and ‘Rust’ is the first taster from this. It’s a sombre yet stirring number that whets the appetite nicely for what’s to come. Reports of their debut gig at Corsica Studios last year road-testing their repertoire were all superlative, so stay tuned to hear of plans to play live.

Midland’s provided the remix for the B-side to ‘Rust’, something also to keep your eyes peeled for. Exciting times.
