London based imprint and little beastly sister of the mighty FUSE London record label is in the process of stepping out from its bigger brother’s shadow and has for a while now been throwing some of London’s baddest parties. One of the most recent cases of this was the annual sell-out NYD party which this year included sets from Fuse members Rossko, Rich NxT and guests Cristi Cons, Janeret, Laidlaw and Pierre Codarin. As well as the events arm of Infuse going great guns the label output is as strong as ever with their recent EP from Michael James selling like hotcakes and also featuring as one of our most popular premieres of the year so far in ‘O.H. Groove’.
The hardworking lads at Animal Crossing had an equally awesome 2019 and it looks like they are starting off the new decade the way they finished the last one. Fresh from the recent announcement that they would be taking off to Gottwood Festival in June Animal Crossing double down on this good news with news of their hook up with London crew Infuse to present the labels first showcase outside of their home city. Taking place on Saturday, March 28th someplace in Manchester the team has unearthed another gem of a venue in the shape of an old disused Citroen car showroom and if the images we have been seen are anything to go by then the lads have yet another sell-out event on their hands.
Of course, having a great venue is only part of the remedy to throwing a standout event, but Animal Crossing is, without doubt, one of the most resourceful events teams around at the moment. For an example of their resourcefulness just take a look at the images from their past events which have involved them taking over Niamos Theatre for a 6-hour audiovisual journey that included sets from Giuliano Lomonte, Cap and a 3 hour B2B from Arapu and Gescu and that is the tip of the iceberg from these lads.
Back to their next adventure and Animal Crossing have lined up something special for their combined event with Infuse. Heading up the party will be a never before seen B2B set from FUSE member Rossko and Subsequent boss Voigtmann. The pairing of these two out and out selectors has classic written all over it and will certainly be something to witness. With most Infuse showcases there will be a special guest in attendance and that honour falls to Frenchman Traumer whose releases are just as well-received as his DJ sets.
Next up is Beeyou label head honcho Laidlaw, an artist that has been a major part of the Infuse family for some time now and is sure to fly the flag when the London imprint collides with Animal Crossing. Lastly, but by no means leastly is the tag team crew of Animal Crossing’s very own resident DJ’s. A mysterious bunch that shuns the personal limelight in favour of making the music the focus of all the attention. If you want to see how a group of promoters transform an old car dealership into a fully functioning 12-hour day to night underground extravaganza you will need to be quick as space is limited for this intimate event. Sleep at your peril.
