Cargo hosts the first official DFA Party since 2008 on Saturday the 22nd of August. Entry will be free until 11pm, and just £5 after. Shit Robot, Mock and Toof, Jacques Renault and Justin Miller will dj courtesy of DFA Records.
The dance-punk enthusiasts at DFA Records, home to the likes of The Juan Maclean and Hercules and Love Affair will be staging their first official DFA Party since James Murphy (co-founder) curated Matter in Oct 2008. So you know what that means… that this is a night you definitely do not want to miss!
Marcus Lambkin, aka Shit Robot, (the name arose from Murphy’s pretty shitty/poor attempt to draw a robot), will be heading the night with his signature acid house and electro beats. His new and much anticipated 12” vinyl ‘Simple Things (Work It Out)’ has been embraced with much love from those at Boomkat and Phonica, who claim his ‘steady heart-throbbing bass line and array of startling acidic sounds is an elegant yet gritty array of synthetic genius.’ Not bad for an ex-cabinet maker, eh?
Following will be the electro-tastic duo, Mock & Toof. Releasing ‘Underwater’ last year with the DFA, the Tiny Sticks and M&T Inc. label founders unleashed a storm with this disco-pop track.
Further upholding the DFA disco to dance-punk policy, Jacques Renault will take to the decks one more time, mixing up his unique sound to the needs of his audience. It seems he’s not just a pretty face…
And finally, Justin Miller will close the night with a seamless bout of tunes that will make you wish that everyday were a DFA PARTY!
