Following a hard-earned break over the month of October, COLONY returns to The Russian to celebrate a year of partying shenanigans. We've drafted in two suitably heavyweight names for the occasion, and enlisted extra support from some old friends who know a thing or two about messy dancefloor revelry, so brace yourselves for a scorcher.
Heading up the bill is the irrepressible Perc, a stalwart of the British techno scene who, with releases on big-gun labels Kompakt, Drumcode, CLR and, most recently, Ovum, can rightfully lay claim to being amongst the best in the business. His own label, Perc Trax, has been consistently on-point, releasing cuts by the likes of Norman Nodge, Xpansul, Ripperton and future star Ben Gibson, not to mention his own frequently bone-crunching productions. An excellent DJ who knows where the good shit is, he'll be delivering a cutting edge selection of dark, stripped-back machine music - exactly how we like it. Joining him is another luminary of British dance music: Kasra, aka Mr Critical. It's no secret that we're huge fans of his label, and it it's hard to see why: it's one of the best around, never resting on its laurels and constantly pushing drum & bass into new, often unexpected territory. Kasra himself is a top-notch DJ, and currently touring the label's latest, excellent offering (Critical Sound), so expect a barrage of forward-thinking treats from him. Finally, our good friends Drop Dynamite will be having it large in the basement, with extended sets from Jids, Oliver Linley and head-honcho Aron, dropping a sweaty concoction of disco, house, techno and electro to keep the birthday vibes rolling (and then some) deep into the night.
Support comes from COLONY residents MB, CB, TDLB and Modus, out in force for the occasion, whilst in-house visualist Darkin will be hooking up with Digital City residents Parallax, who're straying away from their usual home at T Bar to join the fun. And just to make things that bit more interesting, vodka/mixer will be a dangerously cheap £2.50 all night. Happy days!
