Since pitching up at Corsica Studios last September, Ekstravaganza has made quite an impact on our fair city hosting some of the biggest names from the worlds of cosmic disco, leftfield house and techno, such as Lindstrom, Chateau Flight and Bjorn Torske, alongside resident DJ Prins Thomas.
Now with the sun shining down on London and the air thick with the drone of pollen drunk bumblebees, what better time is there to contemplate the hopefully long-hot summer ahead and put a big fat mark in your diary for the Ekstravaganza Summer Party.
For this summer special, Corsica Studios will be throwing the doors open early for early evening cocktails, BBQ and DJ sets from Japan’s Dubby and Discossession crew in the courtyard. Then as the sun sets, the fun and games indoors begin with another lineup of internationally acclaimed DJs and producers hand picked by Prins Thomas himself.
In the main room we have Discossession’s Jonny Nash warming things up for one of Canada’s most acclaimed producers The Mole. With releases on labels such as Kompakt, Wagon Repair and of course Full Pupp, The Mole is sure to have the main room jumping before he hands over to Prins Thomas.
In room 2 Hardway Brother’s Sean Johnston, a veteran of labels as diverse and brilliant as Sabres of Paradise and History Clock lines up against Parisian Ivan Smagghe, former member of the genre defining Blackstrobe and one of the most influential DJs of the past decade.
So that’s it cocktails, BBQ, and the finest cosmic disco, techno, house and sun kissed Balearic beats London has to offer. Elephant and Castle may be lacking golden beaches and warm seas of Ibiza but come on, is there anywhere you’d rather be tonight?*
(*the answer’s no just in case you were wondering)
