UHMM

After amazing sold out parties at Ministry of Sound and in Room 2 of Matter for CiRcOloCo on New Year's Day UHMM is quickly turning into one of the coolest parties in London.

One month sabbatical in January in recovery position from Circoloco, UHMM return to the small club with big ideas 'East Village' to host the basement with headline guest Ali Kuru, Tom King, Stuart Patterson & Simon Young....

ALI KURU is part of Nick Curly's achingly cool and equally popular (8bit Records.) Part of what's now become known as the Mannheim sound, the combination of rolling beats with lush vocals and jazzy licks has quite literally exploded on to the dance floors of every underground club from Ibiza to Berlin. Ali is one of the most in demand artists on the label and is flying all the way from Istanbul to join us.

DJ support comes from Tom King flying the Spunk Records flag. Tom was recently asked to play at CiRcOloCo at Matter on New Years Day and will be collaborating with East Village resident Stuart Patterson and Fabric regular Simon Young on 30th January. Expect to hear underground vibes done true justice on the goliath soundsystem at East Village.

The Deco Lounge is being taken over by MBJ Records who will be hosting LIVE PA’s from URBAN & UK HIP Hop artists including Monica Iconica, Notes, Rico 853, Sainar, Amy Othieno, AnR & Sam Elphick as well as DJ support from Super Deejay Bobzilla (Mutate Records.)

Simon Says No! (Oslo/Bergen) started touring their way into the international music scene with their EP “Ahoi de Angst”. Whether it’s the sweet melodic krautparts or the title track's hardcore mania, Simon Says No! demands your attention. The band insistently shakes their sound fists making you glanze back to both The Colours and Shape of things long gone. The debut album is recorded and the band is looking for an international label deal.

. . : : and finally : : . .
I like this quote about music, and how the best music is the soundtrack to your life :)

"When Oisín was an old, old man
and when all the other Fianna were dead,
he was asked by Saint Patrick
what was the music that Finn and the Fianna loved best to hear.

Remembering those days and the sunburnt companions
who were long gone he told the holy man
that the best music
was the music of what happened."

Marie Heaney, Over Nine Waves
