Fresh from kicking 2009's back door in blog misfits Slutty Fringe take aim at the new decade with their first party at The Big Chill house. Leave the beanbags at home though hippy as tonight's all about partying and with My Tiger My Timing and :kinema:, two of the best new electro/disco/pop bands around playing live you'll soon be giving your dancing shoes their first proper workout of 2010.
My Tiger My Timing
My Tiger My Timing are Anna Vincent, James Vincent, Jamie Harrison, Gary Drain and Seb Underhill and formed in 2008 in south east London. Their first single, This Is Not The Fire, came out in in April and their second, I Am The Sound, produced by New Young Pony Club’s Andy Spence, was released through Pure Groove in October.
The band is named after an Arthur Russell track and they have recently contributed a version of his song Arm Around You to a covers album for the Electric Minds label as well as having original material included on the Sisters EP from French label Sisterphunk and on the recent Pure Groove 3 and Modular Leave Them All Behind III samplers.
Thrown together across an epic European road trip during the summer of 2007 Dom Ashton, Andy Nelson and Ross Flight discovered their shared love for music, laptops and famous actresses. :Kinema: have developed their sound over the last 18 months, combining elements of Yacht Rock, Soul and Contemporary Pop and Dance music into something sounding like Off The Wall-era Michael Jackson being re-imagined by a 21st Century Indie band.
Former Hot Chip drummer Rob Smoughton has firmly established himself as his own man with a series of critically acclaimed releases under his Grovesnor alias. Leaving behind his new band tonight Rob will be digging deep into his record collection to pull together a set of sizzling disco smashes, sure to warm up anyone still feeling the effects of NYE.
It's been a busy 12 months for Slutty Fringe, having kicked off the year dragging 800 people down to a party on the 2nd of Jan things took off from there. By the time the clock strikes 12 on new year's eve they will have hosted some of the biggest and best parties around town, released three records on their Hot Pockets label, been invited to DJ in New York and on a beach in Croatia, re-launched their blog as an all seeing all dancing cultual go to spot and expanded from originators Tony Poland and John Power, to an ever growing team of music writers, designers, fashionistas, photographers and generally interesting types.
Mystery DJs Sports Casual will be stopping by with their twisted set of terrace anthems and sleazy disco. From extended club bangers from the likes of Level 42 and Talk Talk, mixed up with the best of proto house, and sweaty gay disco anthems, let's party like it's 1984.
