Calvi On The Rocks festival in Corsica feels like a very exclusive party for very beautiful people. It makes Secret Garden Party look like the annual World Gurning Championships at Egremont Crab Fair. Tickets are openly available but if you have the impudence to attend without being sufficiently beautiful, you run the risk of being ritually bullied and thrown in the sea by more beautiful people.
If Calvi is a party, then Busy P is the host. As head of Ed Banger Records he has presided over a formidable list of electro bangers from the likes of Justice, Cassius, SebastiAn and Breakbot.
Ed Banger DJs dominate the line-up at Calvi, and on Friday they are coming to London. On Friday night Busy P takes centre stage himself, by headlining Koko in Camden alongside Ed Banger stablemates DJ Mehdi and Riton, playing as Carte Blanche – whose set, complete with dancers on roller skates, is worth a look too.
