26 Issue 75 / 2015 HOUSE/ TECHNO The acclaimed DJ and producer celebrates club culture with his debut solo album News seth troxler is droppiNg acid The party presents an anti-EDM ideology and will pay tribute to the UK's club culture history. He's filled the line-up with people he believes "embody the true spirit of acid house in 2015" – DJ Harvey, Jackmaster, Skream, Marshall Jefferson, Danny Rampling, Craig Richards, Tom Trago and more. With Acid Future, Troxler invites you "to enter into a bye-gone era. A place where dance music was fresh and new." Together the DJs will take us on a trip across acid house's vibrant past, present and a peek at the future. Are you ready? London's Tobacco Dock will play host to the mother of all acid house warehouse parties on August 8th Jamie xx has been making music for a decade – he's one third of Mercury Prize-winning band the xx, he's an active producer and remixer, having produced Drake's 'Take Care' and the critically acclaimed We're New Here, a remix album of Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here, he's created several genre and decade spanning Boiler Room mixes, which have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, and he recently delivered a storming BBC Essential Mix with Four Tet – but it's taken a while for his debut solo album to finally reach us. In Colour, out on June 1st and set to be one of the releases of the year, is a complete celebration of UK club culture. We've already been treated to 'Loud Places', featuring band mate Romy Madley Croft on vocals, and the stomping 'Gosh', complete with atmospheric, spacey visuals, and now 'I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)', featuring Young Thug and Popcaan has leaked – the R&B infused cut is sure to be a summer party anthem. Jamie xx is playing a live show at St John-at-Hackney Church on June 5th, before embarking on a world tour this summer, and given what we've already heard and seen, it's going to be spectacular. And he's also been commissioned to soundtrack a painting as part of the Soundscapes exhibition at The National Gallery, but that's Jamie xx all over – fingers in lots of pies, serving up treats every time. oUr plaYlist Dusty Roads Santé Your Love Frankie Knuckles Evangelion Seth Troxler Flawless Leo Leal Here's the house on our playlist this month: More @ BrightoN MUsic coNfereNce BMC returns for its second year on 5-6th June Following a hugely successful debut last year, Brighton Music Conference returns to for a weekend dedicated to electronic music.
