Slowpoke Turns One
Happy Birthday to London night Slowpoke who celebrate their first birthday this Friday with a free Hackney Road loft party featuring Inxec [Crosstown/Culprit/Leftroom] who is playing both a live set and is djing, and Puente and Rösch [No 19] supporting, plus Slowpoke residents. Anyone who gives out presents such as these on their own birthday are people worth knowing about.
For those not in the know, Slowpoke describe themselves as “a slowed down, low down journey through house, funk and techno”. They’re so fucking selfless that they even claim they “make no exceptions when it comes to sound, programming and setting the mood to help ensure no-one goes home alone.” Well. There you go kids. Shit-hot music and super-sexy atmosphere.
Previous guests have included Maceo Plex (for his UK debut no less), Droog, James Teej, Andrew Weatherall, Slow Hands, Death On The Balcony…. you get the gist.
Check out this recent set by Sishi Rösch that the Slowpoke gang posted to tempt you along on Friday. It’s a monster, mind-blowing set from what seems to be the world’s favourite nightclub, The Electric Pickle in Miami. There’s some obvious crowd-pleasers but a tonne of other tracks you’ll be desperately scouring the net for afterwards.
Slowpoke is at 29–32 The Oval, E2 9DY this Friday 25 November 2011 and will be free but you must add your name to the guestlist to get in.
