5 Easy Pieces is a club night curated by the fine folk at Cargo which for its primer brings together 5 acts designed to fit smugly together like the pieces from the easiest puzzle ever made. Each piece represents a distinct style of house and electro music; but put them together and you have a mother of a no-nonsense, good, honest dance music party. And for virtually nothing.
Nacho Lovers began their production lives as a duo in Toronto remixing a track for their good friends Jokers of the Scene. Since then they have become a hit as both remixers and djs and have as a result been picked up by the Fool's Gold label. Their dj sets are sample-heavy tech house, somewhat bootleg, with a plethora of tracks that have no chance in hell of getting legal clearance and plenty of nods to the 90s New York House scene. It's unpretentious, uncompromising dance music; but above all it's a lot of fun and perfect for a late night Saturday romp.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs dont go by unnoticed. It's not because of their genius monicker; not even because they dress up in costume (one as a dinosaur, the other... we aren't sure what he dresses up as actually), but because of their direct approach to pop music. Their live set consists of 100% own productions, taking all that is good in pop music (catchy melodies, clever hooks, cheery choruses) and adding basslines so punchy that they'll rattle your midriff if you stand too close to the speakers. In a good way. With their debut ep coming out on June 15th as Greco-Roman 's 5th release (their last one was Drums of Death, and look at how he blew up!) and a track in the "10 tracks you must hear this week" on NME, you can expect to hear this name more and more in the future. Don't sleep.
Cargo residents Count Chocula & Joey2Tits never fail to rock the party at our infamous birthday and yard parties. It was only natural that we'd let them loose on a Saturday night. Expect the latest hype releases with a smuttering of classics.
West London party staple crew Get Me! will round off proceedings with another fine selection of Boom-bap, New Jack Swing and Electro gems thrown in for good measure.
