Raving Around – Week 46

Delano Smith and Steve O’Sullivan live @ C12, Brussels

Brussels will be the scene on Saturday, November 17th of the meeting of two of the electronic music’s hardest working artists –  Delano Smith and Steve O’Sullivan (live). Both work tirelessly equal parts both in the studio and out on the road and it shows in their musical output and their performances. Support will come from the Fuse pairing of Franco Y Gael and Session 4000, part of the Deep in House crew that run the exciting C12 event space. With C12 being a new haven for creative arts this will also take in art installations, exhibitions and stellar club nights such as this one. The party will begin at 11 pm and run all the way through to 8 am.

WATSA Factory w/ Traumer @ Rotatives, Marseille

A celebration of music and the sessions that are formed from the mutual love of this art is what WATSA Festival is all about and an extended set from French rising star Traumer is high on the agenda for this party on Friday, November 16th. Taking place at Rotatives, the site of the old newspaper printing press, this is what makes Watsa events so special in that they are always held at leftfield venues. Support will come from A1B2 et Fainst Des Ziris and the party will run from 7 pm to 2 am and tickets are £15 and can be found here.

Back to Basics w/ Cristi Cons @ Club Zero11, Pescara

Italy has really embraced the minimal soul of the slew of Romanian artists that are currently shaping underground music at the moment and the Zero11 crew in Pescara are in for a real treat from SIT member Cristi Cons. His lush musical soundscapes coupled with his sparse groovy beats makes for a devastating combination. Support will come from Mattia Diodati and Toguè and the party will begin just before midnight on Friday, November 16th and will run until 5 am.

Stump London x Maraton @ Cavalerul Medieval, Iasi

Stump London have been pulling in heavyweight bookings from all corners of the minimal and micro house sphere and have left no stone unturned in their quest for the perfect groove. They have now teamed up with Maraton in Romania for an eye-popping 24-hour session. In order to keep the groove going for that long, you will need some serious firepower in the DJ booth and as you might have guessed that will not be in short supply when these two parties collide. Heading up the night will be Fuse London crew member Rossko, he will be joined by Sunrise and Stump resident Cally, as well as Chrissy Hope (Stump), Thierry (Stump) and a trio of Zebra Bookings artists in Primărie, Georgaiani Lucaci and Vlf. As if the music is not special enough reason to make the trip, this unique meeting of musical minds will take place in Cavalerul Medieval while all available surfaces will be dressed in visual mapping by visual artist Pareidolia. The fun kicks off at 10 pm on Saturday, November 17th and will run until 10 pm the following night.

Giegling @ PIP, Den Haag

German collective Giegling have long been associated with en vogue music and their wax only releases are often resigned to folklore due to their scarce availability, so when the German label hits the road they tend to draw a crowd. On Saturday, November 17th two of their finest artists will be stopping off PIP in Den Haag for an all-night session from mainstays Konstantin and DJ Dustin. Make sure you are strapped in nice and early as the journey begins at 10 pm and finishes at 6 am. Tickets are €12 pre-sale and €15 on the door and you can grab those tickets here.
