Discoteca Poca Christmas Party w/ Prosumer 22nd Dec @ Shipping Forecast

I LOVE Discoteca Poca, I really do. I don;t go out much in Liveprool any more raving due to the fact that being far too embedded beyond the regular raving age of late twenties means I do it less frequently further afield, but when I do it’s usually here. Ewan Pearson and Dyed Soundorom have serenaded my ears there in the past brilliantly and the other guests have been especially stupendous, Andrew Weatherall, Maurice Fulton and Tiger & Woods among them. Berlin badboy Prosumer though might just be the best of the lot.

The now soon to be ex resident of Panoramabar is one of the best house jocks on the planet, and as far as gloriously intimate clubnights soundtracked by the masters go this has some real vintage appeal lavished upon it. He’s something of an educated and eloquent observer of music (check this interview where he retains his elegance despite being given the EDM prefix), particularly given his moniker mines Toffler’s theory of the juxtaposition of producer and consumer in the future, but nowhere is this warmth and intelligence best manifested than his DJ sets. The tickets are flying out for this show understandably but you can catch them while they are still available at Skiddle. Swerve buying your uncle those socks.

DISCOTECA POCA… Presents an evening with DUSKY

“Dusky have tapped into something, a universal – an essence that excites DJs and clubbers across the dance divide. Lee Foss included their track ‘Tyto Alba’ on his recent RA podcast; Jamie Jones dropped it at DC10 closing in Ibiza; Paul Woolford and Sasha are rinsing their tracks; bass bods T.Williams, Loefah and Boddika are pushing ‘em; and let’s not forget plays from the Radio 1 bigwigs, like Pete Tong, Toddla T, Rob Da Bank, hell, even Zane Lowe.” – DJ Magazine

Due to Djing near enough every weekend horribly unsociable hours, I don’t go out much in Liverpool. One gaffe I make an exception for is Discoteca Poca. I’ve reviewed their greatness before and there’s always fun to be had when they turn the hold in the Shipping Forecast into a great little rave den. Following on hot on the heels of Dyed Soundorom’s cracker last month, they’ve got Dusky on board this time, the duo that have ditched prog to great effect with some groove heavy assaults. I’ll ‘sadly’ be running wild on Las Ramblas for the Off Sonar festivities, but if you are in Liverpool you know what to do.

Full details can be found here. Peep Dusky’s killer mix for Clash as well.
