Eastern Electrics final lineup revealed while Bank Holiday blowout almost sells out

It’s almost becoming boring, the whole long weekend thing. Not to mention the rather devastating impact partying for an extra night has on the old bank balance, such is the vigour with which everyone approaches these bonus days off work. But we’re not done yet, by any stretch of the imagination, as the final May knees up is just around the corner.

London’s Eastern Electrics have something pretty special lined up too, which we already told you about. Thanks to help from their esteemed friends BLOC, Deviation, and Mulletover three rooms will be on offer, with everything from deep house to obscure beats being served up at the Great Suffolk Street Warehouse in Southwark on Sunday May 29th. Which means we can all take full advantage of the Monday lie-in (or, more likely, after party).

On the night you can find Kompakt and all round alt-house-techno don DJ Koze playing, er, house music, alongside Clive Henry (AKA one half of Peace Division) and their host, Murmur chief Geddes. If that’s not quite right then Border Community boss James Holden will be in control of another soundsystem, with that Dutch future-beat spinner Martyn, Ninja Tune, Hyperdub and Rephlex man The Bug, and rising Werk Discs star Lone.

All of which should sell the show, though if it doesn’t then glitch-hop kingpin Actress is headlining the third and final dancefloor, while Chicago old schoolers Virgo Four, multi-deck wizard Braiden, XFM’s Benji B, and MC Judah turn in appearances too. Sound good? Well, it’s not surprising given what we’ve just told you. Tickets are £18 which, for a lineup of this calibre, really should be well worth the outlay. And, given the fact they’re selling like hotcakes, it seems a few folk agree with us. Click on Eastern Electrics for more details…
