The music we love, every Saturday
Simian Mobile Disco
This weekend sees the XOYO booth graced by the likes of Simian Mobile Disco, Shed (Live), and Dan Beaumont.
Put simply, Simian Mobile Disco are one of the UK’s finest electronic duos and have been for some time. James Ford and Jas Shaw are in a constant state of flux with all aspects of their music, from their tastes and influences to their methods and production equipment. It is this state of constant change that keeps them sounding fresh, innovative, and unique in the studio, in their live shows and their DJ sets.
Fresh from Berlin we have René Pawlowitz, AKA Shed, performing a live show for us tonight. René has lived in the German capital since 2002, where he has lived and breathed the city’s über-rich music culture in all its forms and genres. From his idiosyncratic funk-breakbeat-techno fusion to dubstep and house, he has even been working on a new age-eighties-jungle blend which has been called ‘Greenhouse’. Eclecticism, diversity, and versatility are the guaranteed components of a live show with Shed.
Dan Beaumont – London-based DJ/Producer, Disco Bloodbath resident, NTS radio host, promoter, and club owner. When Dan isn’t in the midst of one of these he’s running his extremely successful Chapter 10 parties which have seen the likes of Mike Servito, ND_Baumecker and Rødhåd play, amongst others. Knowing how to party as well as how to throw a good party is a deadly combination that allows Dan to have every crowd he plays to eating out of the palm of his hand, and we’re certain his appearance at XOYO will be no different.
