We appreciate the festival season is well and truly rolling, but trust us when we say, the best is yet to come. Returning for it’s third year to a riverside location just sixty minutes outside of London town, FM 2015 is taking place on 4th September and is set to be its best yet.

With the capacity being capped at just 500, tickets are due to sell out very soon. What this does mean is the vibe is a friendly and intimate one, not to mention the killer line-up that’ll keep you moving all weekend.

With the recent addition of Daniel Avery, Jon Rust and Shanti Celeste, the line-up’s looking jam-packed with cult favourites. Highlights also include Marcellus Pitman, MJ Cole, Nick Hoppner, Auntie Flo, Mark E and Optimo. The list goes on. With promoters such as ReviveHER, Make Me and Neighbourhood also on board you know you’re in for a party.

Sort your end-of-summer plans out fast, this one will be worth it.

Dance Tunnel x Field Maneuvers

FMLondoners. Listen up.

The folk behind Field Maneuvers are putting on a party at Dance Tunnel this Saturday night and we think you should be there!

Headlining proceedings will be Cologne-based Christian S. The DJ, producer and Cómeme label stalwart has been dabbling in house, techno and disco since the nineties and no doubt will be digging deep into his varied record collection to bring the heat on Saturday night.

Support comes from London-based Toby Tobias and Elena Colombi, the force behind the Abattoir parties and RUFUS&Bambi.

Tickets are a steal at £5 and can be bought here, with more on the door on the night.

Why not delve into the recent podcast Christian S did for Dekmantel (or alternatively visit one of the many excellent radio shows he’s presented for Cómeme), your Thursday afternoons are begging for it.

Naturally we can’t fail to mention the main event, the return of Field Maneuvers festival for the third year running. There’ll be more on the event to follow but essentially all you need to know is it’s taking place on the 4th – 7th September in a field in Oxfordshire. They’re boasting a tasty line-up with highlights including Optimo, Marcellus Pittman, MJ Cole and Blawan, and tickets are running LOW.

So get on it.

If you need any more persuasion, check out this Boiler Room of the 2014 Field Maneuvers’ headliner Move D going B2B with this year’s headliner, Optimo:

Kiwi – The Guanaco Haka EP

Here’s a groovy number to shake you up for the weekend. It’s called ‘The Guanaco Haka’ and it’s by Kiwi.

South London-based Alex Warren, aka Kiwi has been doing the rounds for a while now. He’s had a string of releases on labels such as Kitsuné and Needwant and he’s settled in nicely at The Nest in Dalston as resident DJ. It seems over the last few however, he’s really coming into his own. We raved about his excellent disco-fuelled Llama EP released on Deep Shit and he’s onto yet another total winner with upcoming EP ‘The Guanaco Haka’, this time released on Days Of Being Wild.

Like his previous release, the EP is incredibly infectious and plays host to a wide scope of sounds. It’s slow-building, hypnotic and most importantly, sounds well fresh. ‘Chiroptera’ is a fine example:

If you’re based in blighty and have got a space to fill in the diary over the weekend of 30/8, we highly recommend you get on down to the electronic music summer party that is Field Maneuvers. Yes you guessed it, Kiwi is playing. Along with some other fine-ass talent like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Drums Of Death. Get involved.
