Interview: Riva Starr headlines Nite Sessions on Friday
I'm not having the best of days: angry emails from jumped-up and ungrateful promoters; listings system crashing on deadline day, that sort of thing. But I'm really looking forward to sinking some serious Mojito-age at East Village tonight.
I've picked some DJs. We've put them on. And I think they're rather ruddy brilliant. So I hope that you all come and jiggle with me.
I interviewed headliner Riva Starr for the magazine this week, talking about his single rerelease on Postiva/Virgin, 'I Was Drunk', in August and being a smash in Ibiza. He makes quirky squelchy beats that make me want to do the Cotton Eyed Joe around the dancefloor.
Batty Bass mistress Hannah Holland is jetting in from Berlin to join him, as is bemasked dubstep voodooist SBTRKT. He's very scary – and so is his music. Upstairs, one of my fave ladies of ’lectro, Captain Magic, who runs Peanut Butter Jelly Time, will be guiding the bassy house ship with a host of guests and live acts, including recent Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs collaborator, Lulu and the Lampshades.
I hope I'm not dancing on my ownsome.
