We Fear Silence pres Blueprint Records @ Cable (17th Nov 12)

It's always an exciting time when We Fear Silence invite Blueprint Records back under the arches at Cable. Consistently setting the bar for the highest quality techno with every installment, we last saw them in the middle of an August Bank Holiday marathon as Jeff Mills delighted our senses with 4 hours of pure techno legendary.

Sticking with the Detroit heavyweight / Underground Resistance theme, Blueprint turn to another pioneer, Robert Hood. The flyer says he'll be performing live but, you'll be pleased to know, the M-Plant Records boss will also be performing a DJ set on top.

Mr Hood will be ably supported by the combination of James Ruskin and Mark Broom, both individually, and as their production duo alias, The Fear Ratio. Room 2 will be perfectly marshaled, as ever, by Colony. Residents MB & CB and Tengui and joined by the man behind the label Broken20, TVO (check out the top 10 tracks he picked out for WFS silence on their website).

Advanced tickets are available on Resident Advisor, or you can pay on the door, but I wouldn't get there too late if that's your preferred option because we expect it's going to be a busy one!

P/C/M: London, Grounded Theory: Berlin & The Sound Of Berghain: Copenhagen

After our mammoth roundup post last week, we're keeping it shorter this week, but the three parties we have to tell you about, make it just as strong.


When London party throwers, Plex, Colony and Machine put on events on their own, they always turn out pretty special, but when they combine at Corsica Studios, it ends up being one of the best events on the clubbing calendar.

The first P/C/M, which took place in October last year, brought together the likes of Surgeon, Perc, Andy Stott, Adam X, Ancient Methods, TVO, Peverelist and plenty more.

As with last year there's a few birthdays to be celebrated. Plex are turning six and Colony are reaching four. Plex take care of room one. Ancient Methods return, Regis puts in a live set, and the two combine for the UK debut performance of Ugandan Methods. Joining them is Surface Records' 65D Mavericks, Ø [Phase], Simon Heartfield with a live A/V show and the Plex residents.

Colony host live sets from Livity Sound, Senking and DJ sets from Millie, Tengui and MB & CB. Machine feature Untold, A Made Up Sound, Ben Sims and Paul Mac as Fokus Group and Kirk Degiorgio.

There's a few tickets left on Resident Advisor, but don't hang about because they won't be available for long.


Our favourite Berlin promoters, Grounded Theory, move to a new venue, Stattbad, for their 18th party and they've put together an epic UK trio in the shape of Surgeon, Tommy Four Seven and Sigha. The Berlin contingent is fulfilled by Sven VT and GT boss, Henning Baer.

As is the Berlin norm, there are no tickets, so make sure you get there early to avoid disappointment. Full info can be found on the Facebook Event Page.


No clubbing roundup would be complete without a stop of at Copenhagen's Culture Box. On Saturday they continue their monthly homage to the sounds of Berghain and Panoramabar and this week it's the turn of Ben Klock to take control of the Black Box for an all night session.
