Sounds From The Other City

May 3, 2013


So while most of the focus is rightly going into the awesome array of new music talent that you will find up and down the street during the day, it wouldnt be SFTOC without some late hours action. And it is a bank holiday after all.

Islington Mill will be the main after-hours hosts with 3 rooms of action:


Esqueezy v Dj Al (aka Boltonmore) 

What happens when you bring two eclectic maniacs with an obsession for Patron and Cocounut Ciroc together? Stuff gets totally wild. Good times are all these two know so expect a b2b fuelled battles of house, hip-hop, tech-noo0 and that fuzzy stuff in between. web



Chew Disco vs Pumping Iron

Free love and hot trax for homo rebels, rad straights, feminists, starchildren, moonshine-makers and everyone in-between, Chew Disco, rub up, side by side with a pumping (IRON) mix of vintage underground disco, pulsating house and aerobic Hi-NRG. Spirits High. No surrender. web

Gesamtkunstwerk vs Faktion

Heavy, deep, dirty anlogue electronics from these two masters of dark party action.  Also serves as handy precursor to their team up on May 31st at the Mill with their enormo bill of sonic visceral electronics with Vatican Shadow, Miles (Demdike Stare) and GNOD at the helm.

Chris Egan (Tusk)

A minor master at selecting records both fresh and forgotten, uniting the crowd with both a cutting edge and a pop sensibility. Inspired by the heights of acid house as much as Fleetwood Mac, Chris will be kicking proceedings off with a stripped back set of irresistible rhythms. Expect slow sweat build.


Islington Mill’s resident ‘First Floor Film Night’ have put together a special playbill of over 5 hours of silent films from across the ages with pre-recorded soundtracks. Chill out on the sofas and make the most of that Marble Bar.


After a full day of sceneskyping its time to turn the tables and join with chat roulette friends in a special chat roulette disco. To be completely honest we have no idea where this one is going to end up.

Meanwhile elsewhere around the street you can see Faktion vs Unknown to the Unknown and Wet Play, make it all sweaty up at the Old Pint Pot till 1.30am and the Mind on Fire vs This City is Ours stage carrying on til 1am with a midnight slot from BlackSmif
