Louis La Roche
It's "hot UK producers" night this month at Catzmuzik.
Downstairs, fresh from a top 20 on the world's biggest predictor of blog love Hype Machine, is Max Cooper. He's been labelled one to watch by both DJ and IDJ, headlined Fabric's Sunday night WetYourself - and in July he'll headline one of the Sunday night tents for Lovebox. His remix work, meanwhile, runs from Hot Chip to Au Revoir Simone to an upcoming remix of one of the world's best-loved soundtrack composers - and then back to more dancefloor acts like Extrawelt, Dominik Eulberg, Ricardo Tobar and his upcoming, entirely awesome moody new remix of Ryan Davis.
We can't wait to hear him on East Village's incredible downstairs system.
Then we've also got another massive headliner - and another of the UK's most hotly tipped new producers - in EV's newly revamped, retweaked and resplendent upstairs floor. Louis la Roche will be dashing down to London between appearances at the Oxegen Festival and Creamfields to preview his new track "My Turn".
How good is it? His French-styled, British-played discotastic house is so good - so, so very good - that when Louis put out his first track "Love," most people assumed the name was a fake ID for Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk - and there's a trace of the genius of Cassius in there as well.
But he's real, and he'll be headlining upstairs ably supported by Anglofranko, an ex-resident of Camden's notorious rockspot the Barfly, and lately the promoter of Bleep Test club - a night that''s seen DJ sets from Filthy Dukes, Does It Offend You Yeah?, Hadouken, Ou Est le Swimming Pool, and Operator Please - and our tireless dub and reggae resident Will Skillz, fresh back from an insane three acid-house sets at Glastonbury.
And downstairs, as always, will be our tireless residents Dan Cat, Big Daddy and Mark Sun.
