LWE presents SIDEXSIDE - a three part series of contemporary music events that create DJ partnerships that will excite, challenge and inspire -

*13 October - Horse Meat Disco SXS Danny Krivit
*19 October - Justin Martin SXS Redlight
*20 October - Nina Kraviz SXS DJ Stingray   


SIDEXSIDE is a celebration of DJs and the power of shared creativity that drives our scene forward. The concept is very simple: Two artists sharing an entire night of music, playing together; side by side. With an eight-hour night as their ‘blank canvas’, the DJs have time to push boundaries, to dig deeper into their record collections, pulling out classics, dancefloor destroyers, hidden treasures and even a few guilty pleasures along the way.

Part 1 - Horse Meat Disco SXS Danny Krivit - 13 Oct, 2012 / venue TBA

Now into their eighth year, Horse Meat Disco have continued to lead the way with packed residencies at HQ at The Eagle in London’s Vauxhall, Lux in Lisbon and with the Tape organisation in Berlin. Inspired by the music and inclusive ethos of New York’s club scene during the ’70s and ’80s, Horse Meat Disco have garnered a unique reputation for amazing parties and unmatchable sets, the quartet of DJs each mixing their own individual quality blend of disco juice with all manner of dancefloor fillers: be it punk funk, italo, house, electric bangers or plain old oddities!

HMD will perform alongside New York legend Danny Krivit, his list of residencies and associations demonstrates every ounce of his legendary status. Danny Krivit is the don behind the immensely popular 718 Sessions and one-third of the Body & Soul collective. He started DJing at age 14 and learned from all the greats, including James Brown, David Mancuso and Larry Levan and became famous for his funk, soul, and disco edits (under the Mr. K name). Expect Danny to dig through his enormous record collection to deliver an inspirational insight to one of house music’s living legends.

The collision and combination of Horse Meat Disco and Danny Krivit sharing an entire night of music is something that has certainly got us excited. Now where are my dancing shoes?

Tickets on Sale: On sale now priced from £15 - £20.
Time: 10pm - 6am


Part 2 - Justin Martin SXS Redlight - 19 Oct, 2012 / Crucifix Lane

We welcome one of the more diverse pairings of the SIDEXSIDE concept to date and two DJs and producers who come from vastly different backgrounds, Bristol’s Redlight and San Francisco’s Justin Martin.
Redlight isn't one to be pigeonholed. Whether it underground bangers or A list radio playlists its all about doing his thing his way without compromise. Growing up in the underground scene helped inspire the move into new musical territories and the need to be challenged and the desire to create new styles. Recent Top 10 summer anthem “Lost In Your Love” is a perfect example of that mix, taking inspiration from the musical backdrop of Redlight’s misspent early teens and the eclectic sample sources of jungle and the energy from the illegal warehouse raves he grew up going to in Bristol.
By contrast Justin Martin was born out of London deep house imprint Buzzin’ Fly, and went on to establish himself on the label he founded with Claude Vonstroke, Dirtybird. In demand everywhere from Panorama Bar (Berlin) to fabric (London) and Space (Ibiza), music journalists typically describe Justin’s sound as ‘melodic and tough’ with his music encapsulating both melody and emotional depth, but always with enough undeniable ass shaking properties to translate to the floor.

Both artists have enjoyed two very different career trajectories, but their sounds today have distinct similarities, united by a love of low-end bass and booty shaking! A match made in dancefloor heaven we think.

Tickets on Sale: On sale now priced from £15 - £20.
Time: 10pm - 6am

Part 3 - Nina Kraviz SXS DJ Stingray - 20 Oct, 2012 / East London Warehouse

The third announcement in our first run of SIDEXSIDE events is as special and unique a combination as can be. Nina Kraviz, the name on everyone’s lips in the world of house and techno goes head to head, shoulder to shoulder, toe to toe and deck to deck with Detroit legend and Urban Tribe founder, DJ Stingray (aka Sherard Ingram).

This partnership is particularly enticing as very rarely does a DJ shoot to stardom as quickly as the young, and ever so talented Kraviz. Mixing her raw blend of house, techno, acid and rare groove, she has released cuts on Jus Ed’s Underground Quality imprint, Bpitch Control, Cocoon and Rekids, the label which released her self-titled debut LP earlier this year. By contrast, DJ Stingray has been a legendary presence in the world of techno for over 20 years. He founded Urban Tribe with DJ partner Kenny Dixon Jr, this was quickly followed up by a release of his debut album on Mo Wax Records in London featuring collaborations with long time friends Carl Craig, KDJ and various others. Ingram’s latest projects include collaborations with Carl Craig and Planet E and the launch of his new label Micron Audio Detroit.

Tickets on Sale: On sale now priced from £15 - £20
Time: 10pm - 6am
