Andy Blake and Joe Hart's World Unknown party will hold a fourth birthday bash on Friday, October 11th.Post a comment
The party started out under a railway arch in Brixton back in 2009. They were forced to leave the venue, and, according to Blake, recently "found the perfect spot, slap in the middle of Bermondsey's light industrial wasteland and bigger than the arch, but not so big it loses the vibe." But now they've been told their new venue is—"barring a miracle"—being razed at the end of this month. Blake says this weekend's event will most likely serve as a farewell to the venue as well as a birthday celebration.

Edinburgh club night Substance will celebrate seven years with a party at The Picture House next week.
With a focus on house and techno, Substance has become one of its home town's most prominent club nights. Past guests include some of the biggest names in dance music, with Jeff Mills, Luke Slater and Surgeon among those to have headlined in recent years. The upcoming birthday event, taking place on October 10th, will have a Modeselektions and 50 Weapons theme, enlisting founders Modeselektor and several acts on the labels' rosters for slots. Longtime associates Phon.o and Anstam will fly in from Berlin for live sets, while the UK's Benjamin Damage will DJ. Substance resident Gavin Richardson will be on support duties.
The night will be separated into two parts: the first, a Modeselektor "concert" with support from Anstam, will get underway at 7 PM, with an afterparty to follow and carry on until the early hours of the following morning. You'll have the chance to get started a little early tomorrow night, as the Substance crew will be throwing a launch party for Neil Landstrumm's new album, Dragon Under, at Bongo Club.

Warehouse Project have announced details of a new drug testing system at their parties.60 Comments
In a move that's believed to be the first of its kind at a UK club night, the Manchester party has outlined a new system that will see on-site, government-employed scientists test drugs confiscated or handed in by partygoers, to see if they have been cut with harmful substances. Warnings will then be published on social media channels. The scheme will begin on Saturday, October 12th, with three further dates to follow this year.
The announcement comes less than a week from the death of 30-year-old Gloucestershire man Nick Bonnie, who died after taking contaminated drugs in the early hours of Saturday, September 28th. Five other people were hospitalised. Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Warehouse Project organisers said the initiative was planned prior to the weekend's events. In light of last weekend's events, organisers will step up security and install air conditioning units at their Trafford Wharf venue.
In a press release, promoters also say that a drug dealer was arrested inside the club on the night of Saturday, September 28th, but "then went onto ingest copious amounts of his own product, leading him to be hospitalised." The person has since recovered, been discharged and arrested.

London party Durrr will host its final party on Saturday, November 9th.17 Comments
Guided by resident DJs Rory Phillips and The Lovely Jonjo, Durrr started out as a Monday night party at The End, which closed in 2009. Much like its parent clubnight Trash, it tapped into the anything-goes policy of the electroclash era—a press release recalls highlights such as "a debut show from Lykke Li delivered standing atop the DJ console, Dan Deacon transforming the main room of The End into a conga tunnel, a fresh faced Brodinski sipping his rider of lemon Fanta between records, an early UK appearance from A-Trak, Micachu's Hoover solo, Simian Mobile Disco's dazzling live show, secret shows from Soulwax and Franz Ferdinand, Boys Noize backed by an original air raid siren... and all of this on a Monday night for a fiver."
After The End closed, Durrr became a roving party, hosting events in the US and France, as well as London venues like fabric and Village Underground. Their final party will go down at XOYO, with Todd Terje on headline duties. Klaxons and Mystery Jets have also been called on for DJ sets, with Rory Phillips—who will debut his new live show—The Lovely Jonjo and some unannounced special guests rounding out the bill.
Tickets to the party are available here on RA.

LEAF, short for London Electronic Arts Festival, will hit the capital for the first time in November.2 Comments
Via a series of talks, screenings, workshops and performances running Thursday, November 7th through 10th, LEAF will "explore and reclaim the legacy of London as a pioneering figure in the global electronic music movement." Various events will be spread across the city, with the LEAF HUB (located at the Shoreditch Electric Light Station) acting as the festival's base. In conjunction with leading UK promoters SJM Concerts, LEAF will stage shows in some of the city's premier venues, with Major Lazer, Trentemøller and The Bloody Beetroots all confirmed. Below, LEAF creators Rob Da Bank and IMS founder Ben Turner outline their reasons for the project:
"London has defined a genre. It may not have invented electronic music, but it gave it a global focal point for decades. Its influence from DJs to parties, flyers to technology platforms has been pivotal to the durability and the inventiveness of this scene. LEAF aims to bring all of this together for the very first time in the capital. This is our way of giving something back to a city that helped shape our entire working lives."
Other highlights include conversations with Giorgio Moroder and New Order, who will speak on the influence of Ibiza on their 1989 Technique album. Dinos Chapman, of Chapman Brothers fame, will showcase an AV installation of his latest project, Luftbobler, and the LEAF HUB will host a one-off Boiler Room party featuring Eats Everything, MK and Rob Da Bank. Omar Souleyman, Arthur Baker, William Orbit and Horse Meat Disco will also feature.
