The Lockside, 75-89 Upper Walkway, London NW1 8A. Free Entry 6pm-1am

Slipped Disco, the long running East London club night, is spreading its wings to start a new sister residency in Camden’s Lockside.

For the opening night, Justin Robertson will join host DJ Ben Osborne. Resident Advisor says of Robertson: “It’s hard to find a succinct way to describe [Justin}… an innovator and restless proponent of fascinating forward thinking music, lets use Legend, its sometimes over used, sometimes misplaced, but in this case its entirely accurate.” Time Out says Ben Osborne’s Slipped Disco sets “see anything from classic techno, punk-funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite do the rounds.”

Playing all things dancefloor, Slipped Disco takes the club music of the early Seventies as its starting point and delves into the vast array of music that has grown out of soul, disco and funk – including techno, house, electro and hip hop. It will also see some of London’s most respected players take to the turntables.

Part of the new wave of creativity in Camden, The Lockside is also ingrained in Camden’s musical heritage and is on the site of the former HQ’s club, which hosted some of Camden’s most creative club events. In Brit Pop’s heyday it would see such icons as Jarvis Cocker grace its dancefloor, while also being the haunt of some of the biggest names in UK Garage and two step..

With guests to be announced, future Slipped Disco – Camden nights are on 23 March, 20 April and 25 May and then every third Thursday of the month.

Noise of Art is delighted that the flagship London club Fabric is going to re-open. Earlier this month Noise of Art joined a panel of speakers at The Museum of London to discuss the implications of the club’s threatened closure on the future of club and music culture in London. The event was part of a night organised by Andrew Rutland and Martin Green. The panel was put together and moderated by Alan D Miller, Chairman of The Night Time Industries Association. Speakers included presenter and journalist Sunta Templeton, Andy Blackett (Head of Events and Promotions, Fabric), Henry Scott Irvine (Activist for Save Tin Pan Alley), journalist Kate Spicer and Noise of Art’s Ben Osborne. It was a good and far-ranging discussion, highlighting throughout that we need to protect the capital’s vibrant culture in all its forms. Fabric staying open is fabulous news. A viable and internationally recognised cultural venue has been saved. Congratulations everyone.save-fabric-culture-2

Headlining the first event will be Danny Rampling, the internationally renown DJ who kick-started the acid house explosion in London with his seminal nightclub Shoom.

As a leading light of the original Balearic and acid house scene, Danny was amongst a clutch of DJs that recognised the unique cross over potential of the Woodentops, the first band to be respected by both the dance and indie guitar scenes.

The Woodentops headlined Glastonbury and paved the way for bands such as the Happy Mondays and Primal Scream. Despite this shared history, this will be the first time Danny Rampling and the Woodentops have appeared on the same bill.

Diesel, half of Skint signed act Xpress 2 and former member of the Ballistic Brothers, has been responsible for underground classics on labels such as Junior Boys Own, as well as chart topping hits, such as Lazy – featuring Talking Heads singer David Byrne.

White Noise were responsible for the UK’s first electronic LP, An Electric Storm. Their members also helped introduce electronic music to such late Sixties icons as Paul McCartney, John Lennon and David Bowie via their shows at Arts Lab, while their members were also behind the seminal early electronic theme tune for Dr Who.

Amongst the other acts announced in the first wave are several rising local acts. The Normans are a new Suffolk based afrobeat /acid jazz band, Peter Hepworth is a bubbling under singer songwriter, Aartwerk combine traditional sea-folk music with cutting edge electronica, The Deben Collective play unique, improvised electronic jazz funk, Richard Haugh hosts BBC Introducing in Suffolk, David Freeland is a respected rare groove DJ, and Non Such DJs are Ipswich’s foremost Soul DJ tag team.

As well as curating the event, London and Suffolk based Noise fort founder, Ben Osborne will be DJing, playing a trademark eclectic set that Time Out magazine has described as encompassing everything from ‘shimmering electronic delights” to “dance floor bombs”.

The event will also host techno DJ Rodrigezz jetting in from Poland.

The event is being programmed by Noise of Art, which in the past has worked with such leading institutions and festivals as Latitude, Tate Britain, the Southbank Centre (Royal Festival Hall), Big Chill Festival, The Great Escape, Convergence Festival, National Portrait Gallery and British Film Institute,  as well as international acts such as Coldcut, Laurent Garnier, Booka Shade, Groove Armada, The Beatles , Andrew Weatherall, Phil Hartnoll (Orbital), Andy Barlow (Lamb) and many more. Noise of Art also launched Woodbridge Art and Music Event in Suffolk.

The event takes place in Holywell’s Park and Pump and Grind.

Holywells Park is a natural site for the festival. It received a grant of £2.8 million in 2012 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund, to restore the Park’s heritage and improve its facilities to attract  a wider audience to the Park.
