This Autumn, Corsica Studios will be 10 years old. To commemorate this remarkable achievement we’ll be presenting a series of 10 exclusive events that reflect our tastes and define what Corsica Studios is all about. To launch the series we’re delighted to be welcoming Future Disco to Corsica for the first time and together we’ve assembled a line-up of absolutely epic proportions. For the launch event Future Disco have totally raised the bar and put together a raft of talent responsible for producing some of the most interesting, influential and commercially successful electronic music over the past 10 years and it is no exaggeration to state that this is one of the biggest line-ups Corsica has ever hosted.
James Murphy is not only the man responsible for the sought-after New York-based record label DFA, he’s also the mastermind behind the band LCD Soundsystem, and alongside the brilliant Pat Mahoney, whose Djing is as dexterous as his drumming, he will be headlining tonight’s special show. The band called it a day in April this year following three huge albums but it is no understatement that the LCD project continues to influence a generation of music buyers.
From one great band to another, Hot Chip are the true pioneers of electronic-inspired music of our generation. Their latest album ‘In Our Heads’ continues that tradition with more stand out, quirky pop cuts. They will be playing records alongside their supremely talented cohorts 2 Bears – Raf Rundell and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard - and will deliver a unique “versus” set for the first time in London. Expect some riotous DJ tag-team action of the highest order
DFA mainstay Juan Maclean, whose DJ Kicks album should be integral to everyone’s music collection, won’t need to trick the crowd in loving house music on this occasion, he will instead take them all on an unforgettable journey through the dance decades.
Finally Sean Brosnan, who is the force behind the Future Disco compilation series and events, completes proceedings. After a summer residing at Space in Ibiza and an event schedule that packs in Helsinki, Croatia and Amsterdam, this is sure to be Future Disco’s biggest London line up to date. The only advice offered is get tickets early as capacity is limited and this is a show you won’t want to miss.
As well as celebratory parties with several of the promoters who’ve helped make Corsica the place it is today we’ll be showcasing a number of our in-house nights and embarking upon some more exciting collaborations so stay tuned for more news.
