Back at Momo for Yes We KAN’T (Fri 22 Oct)

by on Oct.14, 2010, under clubs

Ben and Severino are taking their wildly eclectic, beautifully chaotic musical journey, Yes We KAN’T, back to the stylish West End confines of Momo again next Friday.

To be found mashing up Momo regularly these days, Yes We KAN’T is a hedonistic affair whenever it touches down at this cozy basement party venue, so expect the usual scenes of dancefloor – and tabletop – abandon towards the end of the night.

You need to email noiseofart@gmail.com for free guestlist in advance.

Slipped Disco’s UFO: Back at Big Chill House Friday 30th July

by on Jul.23, 2010, under clubs

On Friday 30th July, runaway success story Slipped Disco’s UFO returns to Kings Cross with two floors of cosmic house, space funk and a roof terrace.

The night, inspired by London’s late ‘60’s UFO club, takes over the Big Chill House with a firing line up of jackin house, psychedelic beats, cosmic disco, wigged out funk and analogue electronics.

It sees seminal Nineties eclectic-cosmic DJ and Tummy Touch label boss, Tim “Love” Lee on the wheels of steel. Apart from being the man who discovered Groove Armada back in the 1990s, Lee has recently been causing a buzz wih his latest pych discovery, The Phenomenal Handclap Band.

He joins residents Ben Osborne and X-Press 2 man, Diesel, behind the decks, while Rupert The Brewer keeps it funky upstairs.

Captain Credible is literally from another planet. Norway. His show is an extraordinary, irresistible mix of theatre, music and insanity. This is his first time back since his UK debut at Slipped Disco last year. Not to be missed.

Also playing live, The 9000 return to rock our house down with their funked-up brand of electronic music meets Boosty Collins.

Other-worldly imagery and visuals come courtesy of regular art teams Overlap and Your Mum, while resident photographer Roulla will be on hand to portrait the glamorous.

Yes We KAN’T @ Momo, Fri 2nd July

by on Jun.30, 2010, under clubs

It’s time for a mid-summer Yes We KAN’T session this Friday, back at our spiritual underground party lair, Momo.

After a series of packed out, mayhemic one-offs, DJs Severino and Ben Osborne launch their no holds barred, ad hoc monthly residency with a party mash-up in this fashionable central London haunt.

Osborne-Severino forays here cause sweet chaos as they mix from everything into anything (Seventies funk rock to salsa to glitched disco, jiggy house, drum n bass and bin munching b-lines), which regularly has them dancing on the tables. Even the doormen join in for the “one more tune” chorus.

Yes We KAN’T at Sketch this month, Fri 11 June

by on Jun.01, 2010, under clubs

Continuing a series of one-off gigs, Yes We KAN’T moves into the salubrious Sketch club in the centre of London for a one-night party on Friday 11 June, with DJ Ben Osborne free-wheeling through the genres.

The venue played host to Noise of Art’s New Year’s Eve multi-media extravaganza and is a unique location for a party (including the famous Alien-inspired pod toilets, pictured). It’s free entry all night, but you’ll need to send an email to noiseofart@gmail.com for further details and to get on the list that ensures a nod at the door.

Then in July, Yes We KAN’T will settle down for an ad hoc residency back in the exotic environs of Momo in nearby Heddon St.
Current dates for the party calendar include Fridays 2nd July, 20th August and 17th September. Tables have a habit of being danced upon here, so we’re looking forward to the months ahead, kicking off with Sketch on the 11th…
