Each weekend anyone who is in London and loves to party the night away to house and techno is spoilt for choice with the sheer volume of parties on offer. Not only that, but many of those events play host to some of the world’s best DJs – which means we’re very lucky here in our beloved capital. This weekend is no exception and to help you work out where’s the best place to spend your hard-earned cash, we put together a guide for you every week… Here’s this week’s installment.


Unleash: Martin Buttrich 20 Year Tour

Martin Buttrich is marking 20 years in the business with a world tour (and a forthcoming film, too) and he hits London this Friday with his old friend Timo Maas for a good old knees up at Oval Space in Hackney. Be there!

Fever 105 with Lovebirds

The Bussey Building in south-east London is always a good little spot for a party, this weekend they get the Lovebirds throwing down a three-hour funk and disco set courtesy of Fever 105 from Manchester. Slick line-up, definitely worth a look.

On the 5th Day

One of London’s newest clubbing destinations, The Qube Project is putting together some wicked line-ups already. We’re impressed with the musical programming so far, and this weekend they pull it out of the bag with the brilliant AFFKT headlining with Darlyn Vlys.

The Gallery Pres. The Labyrinth

Ministry Of Sound is one of London’s most iconic venues and rightly so, they’ve been at it for a long time now and have maintained a consistently strong ethos since they opened many moons ago. Henry Saiz will be a big draw this weekend, as will the legendary Nick Warren.

Throne of Blood Showcase

New York-based label Throne Of Blood have been holding events at the Ace Hotel for the last month or so and this month they bring in a great collection of artists for what should be a superb party.

Desolat at fabric

fabric, London’s best nightclub by far (we’re sure no one would be upset at us saying that) this week invites the mighty Desolat gang to pop in and give the main room a thorough workout. Techno a gogo in Room 2, while Manchester promoters Kaluki take charge of Room 3. Strong, as always.

Room 1: Loco Dice | Guti (live) | Hector | Room 2: Terry Francis | Marcel Fengler | Kink (live) | Room 3: Richy Ahmed | Nathan Barato | Pirate Copy | Pete Zorba |

Mixmag Live presents MK

The world’s biggest dance music magazine brings in one of the world’s biggest DJs for an almighty party. MK has been around since the last eighties, dominated the nineties with his ‘MK dubs’, disappeared for a while and was brought back to the house scene by Lee Foss and Jamie Jones. Now he’s even bigger than he was 20 years ago. This should be THE ONE this weekend.

Contender for party of the week this one!
