10×10: Circus with Laurent Garnier @ Egg

The seventh party in Egg’s 10 year celebrations. Circus is a great night, Egg is a top venue and Laurent Garnier is pretty special, so stick them all together and what have you got? Nine hours of serious underground beats to make your toes curl. Add to the line up Yousef, Kevin DCruz, Roberto Martin and a sack load more over four rooms and this is your slap in the face start to the weekend.

A big celebration for Matt Brown and Jimmy K-Tel, aka Sancho Panza, this Summer as they celebrate 20 years of musical partnership, 20 years at Notting Hill Carnival and 5 years at East Village, their only London residency.

Tribe Records Presents…Zepherin Saint and Kristel Morin @ Plastic People
P&S Listing
This is Tribes first party in London in a year and they return for Bank Holiday showdown at Plastic People. Known for being on the deeper end of house with their releases, Tribe Records will be showcasing their new Afro House sound to the dancefloor with label boss Zepherin Saint and manager Kristel Morin taking their place behind the decks. This will be a night for those who love to work the floor so expect a soundtrack of deep, afro, US house and garage and non stop shaking, strutting, waaking and general grooving from start to finish.

Discovery with DJ Kaos, Loud-E, Steve Kotey @ The Horse & Groom
RA Link
We’re keeping it intimate on Sunday with our choices but no with no let up in quality. For this two floored shindig, DJ Kaos (Jollyjams/DFA Berlin) heads to London to join residents Neil Thornton and Jac The Disco downstairs where the beats will have a disco sensibility and a very similar vibe! Upstairs hosts Ambassadors Reception will be having a very special loft party for all you discerning folk, Loud E (Rotterdam) & Birthday boy Stevie Kotey. Loads of extras on the night too, from cocktails, decorations and disco burgers (eh?) as the night is also Mr Kotey’s birthday.

And if you can handle the pace…..

Monday 27 May

Dawn After Hours @ Lightbox
RA Link
It’s Monday morning on a bank holiday and surely the Lightbox is the perfect venue to find yourself at. Well when you have Saytek playing live alongside a crack squad of DJs, those final 7 hours on the dance floor (or outside in the yard) will be well worth the effort. It’s an afterhours, what more can we say, you either do or you don’t!
